Charming Springtime Scottsdale, Arizona Wedding – Karina and Greg
I had the pleasure of shooting Karina and Greg’s wedding in March at Events at 94 Hundred Shea in Scottsdale, Arizona. This was my FIRST wedding of the Spring season! The weather was great and not too hot. This year the Arizona heat has been late, we just had our first 95+° weather this past weekend.
We started the day with a quick, 20-minute first look session at a small park nearby McCormick Ranch Golf Club. This nice private area boasts subtle views of some nearby mountains. For first look photos, I try to find a location secluded and away from any people, and this little green nook was perfect. We were the only ones in the park. Even though we didn’t have much time here before heading to the ceremony, these are some of my favorite photos from the entire day! Their adorable dog Nala is featured in this shoot, as well as in the ceremony and reception.
Ceremony + Reception
We headed over to the venue and I prepared for the ceremony to start. I began capturing a few details before the flower girl dropped white rose petals introducing Karina walking down the aisle with her father by her side. Greg met Karina at the arbor and they exchanged vows + rings with Nala, friends and family around them. I love the laughter I was able to capture during these moments. The ceremony ended with the newly married couple walking down the aisle together hand in hand, with the guests entering the reception hall watching as Karina and Greg signed their marriage license.
We followed-up the ceremony with group photos under the arbor while we still had some daylight, some beautiful traditional and silly images were captured here!
The reception started and the rest of the night was filled with food, drinks and games. After a few hours of dancing and celebration, the night was finished off with a sparkler send-off. This final moment made the night SO magical, I’m in love with the photos!
I’m honored I got to help Karina + Greg preserve memories of this day forever. I can’t wait to shoot more Scottsdale, Arizona Weddings!
