Ashley and Nick’s Glendale, AZ Backyard Wedding

Feb 2, 2016

I don’t know if I’ve ever taken so many photos, delivered so many photos, or blogged so many photos. This wedding had to be as fun to attend as it was to photograph. Tears and smiles were everywhere and it was all because these two are such a great couple. You can tell just how much everyone loves them and just how much they love everyone. Plus, the dancing. Oh my, the dancing. This will no doubt be one of my all time favorite weddings I’ll ever get to photograph. It’s my Michael Kors bag, if you’re Ashley. Or my Boba Fett, if you’re Nick. 

Here are some of my favorite shots from their backyard wedding in Glendale.

    Love the backyard wedding! How fun!

01 We Talk - It’s like a first date, but less awkward. If you like my vibe, we’ll hang out.
02 We Have Fun - We become friends, and I capture you being you. It’s a win - win. And, it’s fun!
