I could never truly and completely convey how much this family means to me. Over the last couple of years I have photographed Daniel, Amber and Penny’s first family session, an intimate lifestyle/engagement session held at their home and finally held the honor of capturing their beautiful and unique desert wedding. This wedding has been such an incredible experience and has made my love for intimate ceremonies grow tremendously. Amber sent me a handful of locations that she felt fit her vision of her dream wedding, but as the planning went on, finding the perfect location seemed impossible. We discussed that her parents were married in the backyard of the house she grew up in and how nostalgic it would be to start this new chapter of her life in the very same spot. About a year prior to her wedding, I drove to her parents house to meet with her and Daniel and set up possible ceremony locations along with portrait ideas. As we were there brainstorming, Amber had shared with me how much she used to love riding her horse in the desert and we immediately discussed changing the ceremony location to an old trail she use to ride. We scouted the location, got stuck in the sand, dug ourselves out and never mentioned it to anyone until now (haha). Despite the tiny 1hr set back we found the perfect location for Daniel and Amber’s ceremony. When the big day arrived we could not have asked for more perfect weather for an October wedding. The overcast of clouds made the lighting perfectly dreamy and the weather was comfortable and cooperative. The ceremony was followed by their reception held in her parents backyard where they were married about 20 years before. The speeches from Daniel’s best man and Amber’s father brought the entire house to tears. The only way to truly feel the emotion is to watch their
Also… Their wedding film goes (0 To 100) real quick.
