I don't even know where to start with Nelda and Preston.  These are two wonderful people and we were so glad they contacted us!  Originally, Nelda had emailed us inquiring about our services for her "dream wedding."  She moved forward with hiring us and we set up there engagement shoot.  Just before that shoot would happen, the couple fell on some hard times, making their dream wedding seem a lot less attainable.  They said regretfully, they would no longer be able to afford our services and would have to back out.

 

This made us sad as we felt we had gotten to know her through our extensive email correspondence and we just felt we needed to do somehting to make this happen.  Nelda and Preston have been together for a number of years now and have two beautiful children together ... this wedding has been long in coming for them.  On top of that, Nelda had made it clear in the beginning that wedding photography was very important to her and now she was going to have to sacrifice that.  We contacted her back and offered to do the wedding at no cost.  This was her response:

 

OMG!  When I read this I just got teary-eyed and my jaw dropped to the floor!  I wanted Sierra Blanco to photograph my wedding from the start when I first saw your photos from the Monument Valley wedding.  I would love to accept your offer, but I would feel bad not repaying you this precious and wonderful gift your giving me on my wedding day.  Well, I should start saying "us", huh?  Ha, Ha ...  Thank you soooo much!  Your helping one of my wedding dreams come true!  Thankful and Happy Bride-to-be, Nelda!

 

That was all we needed to hear and the joy that was felt thoughout the wedding day was payment enough.  The wedding was a beautiful, traditional Navajo event and it was held at Nelda's parent's home in Cameron, Arizona.  The couple thoughtfully presented us with a gift basket and a beautiful Navajo Wedding Basket which we now proudly display in our living room.  Thank you both so much for the opportunity to give back!  It was an honor!  Your families were so welcoming to us and you are both a joy to know :-)!!  We are glad you finally got your dream wedding!

 

Enjoy! XOXOXO

Sierra Blanco,

Ahe'he for doing this for Renelda and Preston. I am soo blessed to have seen their pictures in such way that it is beautiful and a treasure to know that it was captured in such an essence that I hope one day that I will have my day photographed in such a way. I am Nelda's cousin sister and could not make the wedding but was browsing Navajo Weddings and this popped up, and I was like, No Way. HaHa. Blessing in disguise. I appreciate and thank you for the gift you bestowed upon them by doing this for them and relieving them of some of that stress and helping to make their day beautiful. There are no words to describe the feeling of such generosity and kindness of the human spirit in times like that. In the future when I have my wedding I hope that you guys might be able to come out to New Mexico and take pictures of my wedding. Quiet a long ways off. haha. ~Miranda~
