Alyssa + Ryan - Historic Hearn Home, Phoenix Wedding
Ashley of Beginning and End Photography asked me to second shoot this wedding with her and I was so pumped when she told me the couple's names! Coincidence? I think not ;) Either way, this wedding was super fun and full of love like it should be. Alyssa and Ryan got to celebrate their wedding at the Historic Hearn House, a private estate in Phoenix, surrounded by their closest family and friends. We photographed beautiful details of their day which included chickens(!!) and of course we photographed warm, glowy bridal portraits at the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. We may or may not have gotten yelled at for going off the trail there too (oops, our bad!!).
Their bridal party was one of the most fun groups of people ever and were so happy to be there for their friends and family getting married! Two of them even performed an acoustic version of the couple's first dance song, "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie and it seriously gave my shivers. It was beautiful and I definitely teared up at this one.
Wedding Photographer Tip! It's never a bad idea to include extra time in your timeline to drive somewhere off-site with your photographer for your bridal photos! This gives you and your new husband or wife time away from the busy day to enjoy yourselves and really let it sink in that you are now married!
