This day had it all. Rain, thunder, lightening, and none of it got in the way of a truly beautiful wedding day! I was honored when Lisa Foote of Bespoke Photography in Tucson, Arizona asked me to come shoot alongside her for Holly and Hector’s big day! Lisa and I used to work together a few years back at my first photography job and she’s always been a huge source of encouragement and inspiration, not to mention one of my biggest teachers. So needless to say any chance to shoot with Lisa, I’m in!!
This was my first visit to Tucson and I was beyond excited to shoot a wedding outside of Southern California! Lisa was my personal tour guide, showing me how gorgeous Tucson is, with some of the most beautiful sky’s I’ve ever seen… more proof of that to come.
Oh, Holly and Hector… these two will always hold a very special place in my heart! Everything about them is warm, welcoming, fun loving and a general joy to be around! Their wedding just oozed love and they were a complete joy to photograph. Here are a select few of my ABSOLUTE favorites.
Hector, looking very dapper!
The day started off hot and sunny (what you would expect in Arizona), but right before the ceremony the entire sky changed. The clouds rolled in, wind blew and thunder boomed. It was awesome!
This church was just stunning, complete with mountain views directly behind the alter. During the ceremony you could hear the sounds of thunder at the most appropriate moments, still gives me chills!
The beautiful Holly!
These two were such sports, even a little rain didn’t keep them from taking pictures!
The happy couple.
Ah, and here it comes, the moment this wedding became mind-blowing…. Lisa kept telling me “Arizona has the best sunsets, even better than Hawaii!” which honestly I didn’t believe. Until I walked outside the reception to find this! The horizon literally looked like it was on fire, like something from Avatar, out of this world! My favorite shot of the day, and proof I should always believe Lisa! ;)
The whole sky… just amazing!
I’ll leave you with one shot from the reception, which pretty much sums up the rest of the evening!
Congratulations Holly and Hector, and BIG thank you to Lisa for bringing me along!! To see Lisa’s work check out Bespoke Photography and stay tuned for more Arizona weddings. ;)
