Ron & Jess | Hyatt Regency Gainey Ranch Scottsdale Arizona Wedding

I would describe Jess & Ron’s wedding as an absolutely gorgeous and emotional event. Everything from the amazing Hyatt Regency at Gainey Ranch in Scottsdale Arizona to the Jewelry from House of Diamonds, Gorgeous! Jess wore two different gowns for the wedding. The first gown, by Blu Collection, was a stunner, as was her reception Vera Wang gown. I could not pick a favorite even if I had to. ***Me, to myself "I'll take both please***. The very talented Vidogi Salon took over hair and makeup for this lovely day and Butterfly Petals may have out did themselves with the florals. The purples, blues, pinks and magentas, oh my heart be still. The super skilled DJ Christian Gama made sure all the sound and music went flawlessly. My second shooter, Pamela, was so wonderful, as always!!! 

Jess was not worried about having any particular shots. In fact, she wanted us to focus on what took place vs. posed family photographs. That is why I LOVE what I do! Jess wanted to make sure I captured the love they share. That was music to my ears as I LOVE love and they have so much of it. I tried, really hard, to convince Jess to do a first look because I was so worried about time and not getting the pictures with the right amount of natural light. She thought about it for maybe a second and said “I do not want to do a first look. I trust you!” I am SO GLAD they did not do a first look. I mean, Ron’s face as he watched Jess walk down the isle <bawled my eyes out when editing those>. That is real love and real emotion. Did I mention we got to ride on a gondola! Highlight of my week! I think it is safe to say I truly enjoyed shooting Jess & Ron’s wedding and I wish them a lifetime of happiness together.
