Jen and Lou married at the Buttes, Marriott Resort

This is a lovely wedding story and pictures of Jen and Lou.  They were married at the Buttes Marriott Resort in Tempe.  It is such a beautiful venue with our Arizona rugged dark mountain and some unexpected lush grounds that are kept beautiful year round. 

If you know Jon (owner and photographer of Something Blue Photography) he is a rock hound and petroglyph junkie.  Who would of known that there are petroglyphs on the property.  Ummmmm Jon does.  I love the photos of the resort with the petroglyphs in the foreground.


Jen and Lou chose to do a first meeting prior to the ceremony.  It was such a blessing that we did because just moments following the ceremony it down poured rain for most of the evening.

Loved this little towl cabana shack.  Just adorable

Check out the boulders cascaded by green plants and flowers.  Ummmmmm just beautiful.

The ceremony location at the Buttes Marriott is just amazing with the dark rock backdrop and lush flowers and foliage.  The grooms last name is Bock and they incorporated that in the sand ceremony.  Love it.

This was a gift they gave to their guest.  Honey....It was meant to Bee. 

As I mentioned it did rain.  But hey, we made lemonade.  Love the umbrella, city lights and moodiness of the afternoon.  Just dramatic.

Thank you Lou and Jen for such an amazing day and we wish you all the love and happiness that you deserve together.

Bryce and Margot tie the knot at Reflections at the Buttes

Our featured wedding this week is Bryce and Margot.  Such a loving couple with strong family bonds.  They had their ceremony and reception at Reflections at the Buttes.

This is Aisha.  She was a student at Cienega HS and a budding photographer.  She came to us about a year ago and asked if we would mentor her for her graduation project.  So we did.  She shadowed us on several engagement sessions and weddings to complete her project.  We fell in love with this sweet girl. 

Aisha told her family about us and next thing we knew, we were booked to photograph her brothers wedding.  So here we are.

We started out the day at Margot and Bryce's house.  And this is Margot's mom.  Sweet sweet mom.  She blessed us all with homemade Ceviche.  Ohhhhhhhhh it was yummy.  Thanks mom.

Then we headed over to Reflections at the Buttes to dress and photograph the wedding party. 

This is one of my favorite shots of the day.

On to the ceremony.

Jon caught Bryce's dad having a moment.  I love seeing the emotion in the day.  Truly is a blessing.

Ahhhhh the first dance.  So sweet and romantic.

Our signature night shots.  Looooooooooooooove it!!!

Bryce and Margot had an idea of a picture they wanted.   They had found a picture of Barock and Michelle Obama at the end of their reception and thought it would be cute to rein act it.

Congratulations to the both of you.  May your days be filled with laughter and your arms with love.

Stephanie and Corey's E-session

 Stephanie and Corey is one of our many couples who is getting married in 2012 and we will be photographing the wedding for them.   We love our jobs  when you get to meet such great people as these two.  Taking a stroll out and about in Sabino Canyon, we found some very beautiful and lush locations.  Please enjoy the love and glow between these two love-birds.

See Arizona has green and water.....Who would of thunk it :)

This just screams magazine spread to me.
