I am a huge fan of vintage, and I do not think I will ever get bored of it. I think it will always be classic, beautiful, and very romantic style for weddings. So when the first image of this vintage wedding popped onto my computer screen, I knew I wanted to feature it. The first image was of the gorgeous bride and her stunning dress, beautiful bouquet, and killer hair and make up. Each and every image after that had me totally hooked. I love all the pretty details and the venue is the perfect backdrop for this lovely vintage wedding. Enjoy Monday morning with a dose of romance.
Last week I had the great opportunity of photographing Vanessa and Jairo’s wedding. A few months back I had flown in to Tucson to shoot his brother’s wedding (seen at www.elmerescobar.com) so it was a really great feeling to be invited back for Vanessa and Jairo’s wedding. We met up at Whispering Tree Ranch in Phoenix. Vanessa was finishing up getting ready so in the meantime we took her dress, shoes, rings, and jewelry out to have them featured. One thing I am adamant about is that if you put so much thought behind every detail (and Vanessa absolutely did), then there should be a time allocated in the day to capture all of them. Once we were done photographing them and she was in her dress, we took a few minutes to photograph her in her dress. Again, if she put thought and effort into it, I want to make sure she has photos of it. But of course, eventually it was time for the ceremony. But not before Jairo getting a little bit of a preview. Not visually, but he could at least touch his bride. It wouldn’t be until she was being walked down the aisle by her father that he would see her in her dress. It was a beautiful heartfelt ceremony, and the reception was just as special. With friends and family coming in from all around the country (and some from out of the country). Thank you Vanessa and Jairo for letting me be there for your special day. I wish you nothing but happiness in your new journey together!
