ELIZABETH AND RYAN’S WEDDING AT THE VALLEY HO HOTEL

This is my last wedding post on this blog (moved to www.kellyandsergio.com) and I am glad that it is Liz and Ryan’s wedding. Truly one of my favorite weddings ever! Liz and Ryan’s first look almost made me lose it because it was so emotional. Their first kiss also put goosebumps on my goosebumps. The Valley Ho Hotel was the perfect venue for them, my favorite hotel in the world!

Drea from Desert House Productions killed it at the reception as usual.

I was super lucky to have Nick Tillinghast shoot this wedding with me. Nick has shot with me for years and he is always getting better; he really kicked ass at this one. Thank you Nick!

BENLY’S WEDDING AT SANCTUARY CAMELBACK

Kelly and Ben are two of the sexiest people we’ve ever met.  They just cannot keep their hands off of each other.  As wedding photographers, there isn’t much more you can ask for.   The heat of their upcoming union caused one of the biggest storms in Phoenix we’ve seen in awhile. This love is intense.  All kinds of craziness went down due to the storm: electricity went out, trees came down, mudslides were formed, and the ceremony site was swamped.  These two took it all in stride and as soon as the ceremony began the clouds cleared, the wind became a whisper and the tears began falling.  A love like theirs is what we’re all after.  A love that can weather the craziest storms and come out shining even more beautifully at the other end.  Here are our favorite photos from the day.  Kelly Rashka and I worked our asses off as usual.  ;)
