Jenni + Lauren Wedding | Arizona Wedding Photographer
To know Jenni and Lauren is to love them. You may not understand their relationship, but if you spend 5 minutes with them I think you’ll quickly realize that you don’t care. You just love them both and love their love together. They have one of the most infectious relationships I have yet to see and I think that’s what makes them so special. They instantly make you feel like one of their tribe, and draw you in with just how freakin happy they are to be together.
Jenni reached out to me about a year ago and timidly asked if I’d be “willing to work with an LGBTQ couple”, which I immediately gave a resounding HELL YES PLEASE PICK ME. I was excited then when they chose me, and I was even more excited when I got to know them at their engagement session at the Mogollon Rim last year (you can view that here!) They got ready at an AIRBNB in Gilbert, and the second I walked in it was a non stop party and just all around fun to be there. They got ready in separate areas of the house and their bridesmaids were careful not to let them see each other all morning. They chose to do a first look, and I’m so glad they did. We drove over to a little spot near Freestone Park, placed them back to back to each other and did a double first look with them. That was one of my personal favorite moments of the day!
Next we headed over to The Islands Clubhouse for their small ceremony lake side. They walked each other down the aisle, and had one of their closest friends marry them. Their ceremony and personal vows were the sweetest, more heartfelt I’ve heard, and they had the biggest smiles for their “just married!” moment. The evening was spent eating Mexican food and dancing the night away with their closest family and friends. It was one of those days that I never wanted to end.
Jenni & Lauren, I am SO thrilled for you girls and so happy that I was chosen to be your photographer. I can’t express it enough. I am so lucky to know you and hope we stay in touch forever and ever.
