Melissa & Kenny – 8/29/14 The Wigwam

I first met Melissa & Kenny last summer when we did their engagement photos. Such a fun couple and very much in love. I especially liked that they wanted to include their dog Zoey and get a few shots with her on the wedding day. Melissa looked stunning! Great looking family! Mike was my second shooter and spent time with the boys while I was with the girls. As you can see above, the guys were relaxed and having a good time.

Michelle & Cuong – 8/2/14 Arizona Grand Resort

Michelle & Cuong are from Connecticut and chose to have their destination wedding here in Arizona. While some of Michelle’s family live in Arizona, a lot of the east coast family traveled from Connecticut to Arizona for the wedding. They had an amazing turnout of close friends and family who traveled long distances to celebrate their big day. So pretty!My second shooter for this wedding was Chadwick. He was able to spend time with the guys while they got ready and I was with the girls. I love when couples want to do a first look. Why? Because you’re not rushed and able to take everything in and enjoy each other. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that it calms the nerves as well. Below two images by Chadwick.I just love the way he’s looking at her above. It actually started sprinkling a few moments after I captured this shot of them above. We quickly headed inside and less then 5 minutes later, it was pouring rain. Perfect timing! Chadwick captured the cake beautifully belowCongrats Michelle & Cuong! Have a fabulous time in Cabo
