Whitney and Chase's wedding was my third March Mesa wedding in a row! And I can't begin to say how much I love Mesa in March. The weather is perfect, the lighting is to-die-for and to be quite honest, the people in Mesa are pretty rad. Take Whitney and Chase for example, these two are way too much fun and super photogenic too!
"I'm leaving on a jet plane!" (sing with me now...) "Don't know when I'll be back again!"
Actually. I do know, I'll be home sometime on Saturday. I'm heading to Disneyland with my family. I will be able to answer phone calls and e-mails on a very limited basis, so if you call/e-mail me and don't hear back right away, don't panic. And fear not dear blog readers, when I return you'll get to see some of this beautiful wedding action:
Still searching for that perfect dress? Then you need to head to Abella Bridal, located in the Shops at Riverwoods in Provo. Their selection and service is amazing, and they are currently having a moving sale in preparation to move to their new location! From their blog:
"since we don't want to have to lug of all our older style gowns* over to the new spot, we have dramatically marked down the prices on these dresses. so come on down to the store and take a peek soon before your favorite gown gets snatched up by someone else."
Abella Bridal just so happens to be where I purchased my own wedding gown, and some of my favorite gowns I've photographed have been from Abella. Here are a just a few examples:
A few weeks ago I was in Mesa, Arizona, to photograph this lovely couple's wedding. We shot their bridals at the temple a few days before the wedding day to make sure we had the best lighting and weren't rushed. It worked out perfectly! It also didn't hurt that it was in the 70's while it was snowing back in Utah :)
I know I say this about all the couples I work with, but I loved working with Whitney and Chase! There were multiple times I had to put my camera down because I was laughing so hard and couldn't hold the camera still. Stay tuned for their wedding pictures!
While I was in Arizona this past week I was able to meet up with Natalie to shoot her bridals. We weren't able to get them done before her December wedding in Oakland, but it turns out that we were both going to be in Mesa in March so it worked out perfectly! And not only that, it's kind of fun to say that she had her engagements done in Utah, wedding photos in California and bridals in Arizona :)
My cousin Cami needed a quick headshot taken for her neighborhood newsletter, so while I was at her house I snapped a couple quick shots. We couldn't resist taking a few with her baby David, isn't he cute!
