"For me, wedding photography is more than just capturing moments. It’s preserving the start of a legacy. It’s allowing my couples to relive the best day of their lives. It’s making friends and family." 

"It’s knowing how to bustle a dress when no one else does. It’s being able to expect the unexpected. To step in when others step out. To lend an ear and a shoulder when a loved one suddenly passes away. A hug and high five as you celebrate down the aisle. It’s more than just snapping pictures. It's more than just money in the bank. The experience I provide is more than just a photographer. It’s what I was meant to do."

New Year’s Eve Wedding at Shenandoah Mill

Mike and Lisa met at a Starbucks.  They started talking about soccer and quickly learned they were around the same soccer life/people.  Being that they both have three kids of their own who all played soccer, it was crazy to learn their paths never crossed before.  After dating for a while, Mike finally proposed on Christmas in front of all their kids.  Since this is their second marriage, I really loved the fact that they tied in the New Year with new beginnings and a new life together.  

Their wedding was held at Shenandoah Mill, in Gilbert Arizona – on New Year’s Eve.  The weather was perfect!  We were a little nervous it was supposed to rain, but thankfully the rain came a day early, and they had beautiful Arizona weather!  Their ceremony was held outside on the lawn, with cocktail hour to follow up on the patio.  Lisa had Born N Bread create these supper yummy hors d’oeuvre.   Each table in the reception had a New Year’s Resolution on it along with a napkin that was tied with a clock and a poem that said “Time has a wonderful way to show us what really matters.”  Each clock was also different, which was really neat to photograph.   Their cake was topped with sparklers, which was fun to shoot and the guests lined up to see lit!  

Mike and Lisa, thank you for allowing us to capture your new beginning! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their special day!
