Alex and Nick’s Desert Botanical Garden Wedding

Oct 30, 2018

I’ll be honest, I get nervous before photographing weddings. It’s a big, long day where you are trying to make art while also documenting the most important day of two people’s lives. I know I am great at what I do, but I feel the gravity of the situation and I always want to nail it for my couple. It always goes away almost the instant I see my bride or groom for the first time. The moment I arrived to start photography for Alex and Nick’s Desert Botanical Garden wedding, Alex said something to the effect of how happy she was to see me. It was so warm and genuine and the best welcome I could have had. The nerves were gone. Butt kicking art mode was engaged.

Just like their engagement session, we had a ton of fun all day. They even hired the dynamos at Your Jubilee as their planners, and they always laugh at my dumb jokes. Here are some of my favorite photos from their wedding at the Desert Botanical Garden.
