5-26-12 Destination Wedding Photographers LJWed00.jpg

Leah and Josh were married May 26th, 2012 in downtown San Francisco, California!  Their ceremony was held at Fay Park and their reception took place at the San Francisco Art Institute.  It was a lovely day and the weather could not have been any better, sunny and warm ... by San Francisco standards :-).

Just before this wedding (one hour to be exact) the unexpected happened and Kevin and I had one of the worst experiences of our lives.  All, and I mean ALL, our photography equipment was stolen.  It was horrible but I don't want to focus on that in this posting (read more in our next posting specifically written for that.)  Instead, we want to focus on how this wonderful couple and their amazing families and friends helped to pull us through such a gut-wrenching experience.  All it took was being in the presence of their warm personalities and witnessing the love and deep caring they all so clearly have for one another.  This wedding was full of much laughter and tears and it warmed our hearts and restored our spirits and most importantly renewed our faith in something we weren't sure if we still had after such a violation ... our faith in humanity and the good that most of us harbor as human beings.  Thank you all for that.  It was an honor to be a part of your wedding day!

We also want to extend a very special thank you to Leah and Josh's Wedding Coordinator, Vera Devera and her husband of Va de Vie Events.  Without their help we would not have been able to move on and photograph this wedding.  They graciously drove us all the way across the city, on a busy holiday weekend no less, so we could purchase new equipment.  Thank you both so much ... you really did save the day!!

Jessica and Dean's wedding was held May 27th, 2012 in Sedona, Arizona.  The ceremony was held at Seven Canyons and the reception at Enchantment Resort.  It was so stunning, we really felt it deserved to be broken into two parts!  The groom's cake, designed by Sedona Cake Couture, was fashioned after a cigar box.  It looked so realistic, it was hard to believe it was entirely edible.  Karen Lynn, Sedona Wedding Planner, did an amazing job coordinating this event!  Thank you so much Jessica and Dean for having us as your wedding photographers ... it was amazing to be a part of it all!

5-27-12 Sedona Wedding Photographers JDWed00.jpg

I have been itching to post this gorgeous wedding ever since we shot it Memorial Day weekend, and for obvious reason ... this one was a stunner!  I loved Jessica from the first email and I instantly knew we were a good fit :-).  We spent the better part of two years getting to know one another in cyberspace before the big day came around, so when it did and we finally met face-to-face, I felt as though we were already fast friends.

Jessica originally comes from the White Mountains of Arizona, a place Kevin and I know well since we also lived there some years back and it is the place we first met.  Dean's roots began in South Africa, and of course anyone who knows me knows of my deep obsession with the Dark Continent.  The couple now lives in Florida, that's right, another bizarre link as I lived in Florida for a decade of my life ... well, you see where I am going with all this :-).  Kevin and I had the best time getting to know these two throughout their wedding day and the following day for their trash the dress shoot (coming up in another post and equally as stunning) and the wonderful dinner we shared with them after.  We definitely hope to spend more time with them when our travels bring us back together again.

The traditional Jewish ceremony took place at Seven Canyons in Sedona and their reception was held nearby at Enchantment Resort.  Every detail, from the amazing floral carpet designed by Jim and Ken at Events by Show Stoppers, to the unbelievable groom's cake fashioned into a cigar box (entirely edible) designed by Andrea at Sedona Cake Couture, to the chocolate favors flown in from South Africa, was simply jaw-dropping ... not one thing was overlooked!  Jessica is a make-up artist in Florida, so it only seemed natural for her to do her own and her maid-of-honor did an amazing job styling her hair.

The reception didn't disappoint either, starting with the elegant choreographed first dance performed flawlessly by the couple.  The party raged through the night with plenty of dancing, cigar smoking and patron shots flowing!  Thank you both so much for having us as your wedding photographers and we can't wait to see you again and meet up for another wonderful dinner :-)!!

The day after Bethany and Michael's wedding at Kauai Coast Resort in Kauai, Hawaii, we headed out to photograph their trash the dress session.  We literally drove from one end of the island to another in search of the most scenic places to shoot and I think the photos are proof that we found them!  Kauai is nothing but one endless, stunning vista after another and we definitely made use of them.  This couple was fearless and we had the best time doing this session!  Again, thank you both for the experience and for spending the day with us and trusting in our location-scouting choices :-)!
