Every once and a while I have a couple who is military and can’t do an engagement session because one of them is either deployed or active duty in another state. That was the case for Danielle and Trent. And that was actually ok, because if you know anything about me – I love my couples and strive to build a relationship with them so the day of the wedding, it’s not awkward and weird.
So after video chatting (thank you technology!) and learning more about them I knew their wedding day was going amazing! Their wedding took place at Windmill Winery’s Lake House in Florance, Arizona. Instead of having a first look with Trent, Danielle did a first look with her Dad. I swear those get me every time! I especially love it when Dad’s cry…it just rips at my mom heart! After praying with their pastor it was officially time to get married! The two shared in communion and also a unity braid ceremony which symbolizes the joining of the couple and God into a marriage.
Then it was time for sunset portraits….my faaaavorite!! You’d never know these two didn’t have an engagement session! Another fav of mine – the reception details! Pinecones, candles and romantic ambiance everywhere!!! Let’s just say my little detail obsessed heart was in Heaven!
From the sweet couple, “Amanda is simply AMAZING!! She’s not just a photographer but also a friend who takes time out of her schedule to genuinely build a relationship to get to know you. Her gift behind a camera is unlike any other photographer I’ve experienced and her work is proof of that. She makes sure to capture those moments you as a bride want to remember on your special day and it’s done in a very organized manner. She is very confident in the pictures she captures, making that awkward or shy feeling of being in front of a camera quickly disappear by walking you through what to do to get that perfect shot. And my favorite part about her is she isn’t afraid to let her fun, sweet personality shine through. So if you’re looking for a photographer, contact Amanda!! She gave us captured moments we will cherish forever and we will recommend her to anyone!”
Danielle and Trent – Thank you for allowing me to be a special part of your day! Danielle – I’m so thankful for your sweet friendship and blessed to have you in my life! Trent – Thank you for being such a badass and for putting your life on the line for us! I can’t wait to celebrate with you two in May! 🍻
