Taylor and Jared had a warm, glowy Scottsdale, Arizona wedding at the gorgeous Troon North Golf Club. I was able to take Taylor and Jared’s engagement photos in the snowy Utah mountains before their wedding, so I had been looking forward to hanging out with this sweet couple on their (much warmer!!) wedding day!
Taylor and Jared both got ready at Troon North Golf Club. One of my favorite moments was Taylor and Jared’s first look. Jared turned around to see Taylor and had the biggest smile on his face. Tears were shed and it was the sweetest ever. We did a few portraits of them together and then brought out the wedding party for their photos. The biggest perk of doing a first look: more time on the wedding day after the ceremony to really enjoy your day with your friends and family (and a cocktail)!
With the surrounding desert landscape and huge Saguaro cacti, Taylor and Jared said their vows in front of their family and friends. After the ceremony, we did more portraits of them as the sun was setting. Nothing makes me happier than a warm, golden sunset, and that’s exactly what we had for Taylor and Jared’s photos! Their wedding photos are truly an Arizona wedding photographer’s dream!
After their gorgeous sunset wedding photos, Taylor and Jared headed to their reception to celebrate the rest of the night. It seemed like all of their wedding guests, friends and family, were tearing it up on the dance floor and I was dancing right along with them. To end the night Taylor and Jared did a sparkler exit and then drove off as a married couple! I loved being a part of Taylor and Jared’s desert wedding in Scottsdale!
Taylor and Jared left me the most thoughtful review I have to share:
“Nicole is SO personable, excited for you, and has years of expertise to help you get exactly what you want. She is a wonderful and talented photographer AND an amazing human being. My bridal party and guests commented several times about how friendly she was, how hard she was working, and how they wanted her information for their future weddings. I cannot stress enough how amazing Nicole’s work is, her professionalism, and overall attitude. HIRE HER!”
