Liz and Matt were such a fun and laid back couple to work with as a wedding photographer in Phoenix, Arizona. When I first met them Liz’s original plan was to just have a party and fish fry on a friend’s land under a tent! However, they did end up booking a venue at the beautiful Samuel Cedars in Rogersville, MO. I was actually blown away when I got there and saw all of the fun decorations and details! Liz’s dress was absolutely stunning and the couple just had such a fun and relaxed wedding that made it awesome to photograph! The wedding was complete with lots of cowboy boots and lace! The bouquets were actually made from all recycled materials! Many of the decorations had also been given to the couple from friends that had recently gotten married! Liz made her own unique belt to go around her dress and the brides maids wore denim shirts with skirts and boots! I loved it! As a wedding photographer in Phoenix, Arizona, I could not have asked for a better wedding to kick off my 2016 wedding season!
The couple decided to do a first look which was perfect to get all of the pictures done before the wedding. However, during the reception, we snuck back out around sunset and got some more amazing pictures! Liz is a hair stylist so she had plenty of friends in the business to help her get ready and look perfect for the big day! She also planned some special moments with her parents and left some time before the wedding where her and Matt could just relax, collect themselves, and also write each other letters about their thoughts before the ceremony! All in all it was a wonderful day filled with laughter, family, and friends. I was so lucky to be a part of it and get to photograph such a wonderful wedding day near Phoenix, Arizona!
