Scorpion Gulch | April and Ray
Very excited to finally be sharing April and Ray's beautiful wedding day! I have been so fortunate to attract some of the most genuine, thoughtful and lovely couples in Arizona and April and Ray are the epitome of that description. When we first sat down they shared that they just wanted beautiful photos of their wedding day and would go to any lengths to make that happen. This of course was music to my ears!!
April and Ray's day started with a beautiful church ceremony at their parish, St. Anne's in the East Valley. This church is absolutely stunning with a gorgeous painting behind the altar. April and Ray's family was an integral part of their ceremony reading bible passages and participating in the very special wedding traditions. Their priest passed along wonderful wisdom on how April and Ray can continue to follow God's path as a married couple, it was truly moving.
After the ceremony we headed to a shady spot at the church for some really fun bridal party pictures! When I say fun I MEAN FUN! April and Ray had a huge bridal party and after spending the with them I understood why it would have been impossible to exclude any of them. Each bridesmaid and groomsmen was so special to them and brought such joy and laughter to the day, they were amazing!
One of the most important aspects of the day for the newlyweds was their sunset portraits, they wanted them to be beautiful and were willing to go on location to capture the desert and the desert's beautiful light. We opted for Scorpion Gulch at South Mountain, thankfully the location was close by to their reception, it couldn't have been more perfect! April's cathedral veil glowed in the setting sun and their happy smiles lit up the images. There is nothing better!
It was such an honor to capture April and Ray's wedding day! Here are some of my favorite images I hope you love them as much as I do!
