Hi and welcome to my online home! I am a photographer located in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm married to my wonderful hubby, Jon, and we have 7 fur babies: Kitty Amazing, Baby Kitty, Petunia, and China, our cats, Hank and Seymour, our dogs, and Junichiro, our hedgehog. Admittedly, Junichiro is more of a spiky baby than a fur baby. I love travel, nutella, donuts, cupcakes, (okay just bring me all the carbs alright?), reading, green tea, soccer, dancing, and soft pillow cases. I love having you, I hope you stay awhile.
Sandy beach. Drift wood. Light house. Boats zipping to and from. This is the scene for Amber and Steven’s wedding.
Amber and Steven’s story started 8 years ago when they met at a party through one of Amber’s bridesmaids, Shalon. Since that time, these two have grown and faced life head on together. And they also have the most adorable son who is also my spirit animal (see the pictures of him with his donut below LOL).
During Steven’s vows, he told Amber about how she demanded more of him as a man and partner because she was a woman with a strong sense of self, who knew her worth. And Steven rose to the occasion. All of Steven’s groomsmen talked about the incredible impact that Amber and their son have had on Steven. The pride and love you see emanating from Steven’s face is proof enough of that. His emotion as Amber walked down the aisle was so powerful that there wasn’t a dry eye in the ceremony.
And it got even more emotional during the toasts, when Amber’s Grandma had words of love from her other grandparents that had passed on. Those memories and words touched Amber so deeply. And if that wasn’t enough, hearing Amber’s Dad talk about his baby girl with tears blurring his vision had me reaching for the kleenex. It was seriously so beautiful. Having family share such monumental words on your wedding day is on of those experiences you hold tight to for the rest of your years.
But after the toasts were completed, it was time to party. And this crowd was down to dance let me tell you! Parents, Grandparents, and friends alike all got on the dance floor to show off their killer moves.
Steven and Amber’s wedding day was truly special, and I am so blessed to have been a part of it! I know that this family of three is on to incredible things!
