You may assume from these pictures that this was a styled shoot, but crazy enough it isn't! Moriah is a event planning WIZARD! Everything from her gorgeous pink dress with the most stunning floral details, to Ryan's seriously awesome green suit, to even her bouquet was all her idea! She is so inspiring! And let me tell ya, the love that they had for each other was nothing short of amazing. Our session was full of laughter, running in a green desert, baby moons, cacti, and more! What I absolutely love about Moriah and Ryan's wedding outfits is that it is just totally them. Something to remember about your wedding is that it is YOUR DAY. Not your mom's, your grandma's, your sister's, best friend's, etc. it's YOURS. So do what you want!
We shot our session at South Mountain and since we had so much rain the dessert was green with grass. I didn't even know that was possible! It went together perfectly with Ryan's green suit and Moriah's stunning bouquet. Seth and I have decided to move to Boise to settle and I'm so sad that my time with these beautiful huge cacti is temporary. I love how every cactus is so different and has it's own personality.
I was so happy when Moriah and Ryan said that they would like to take their formal wedding attire pictures a month before their wedding. There are so many reasons why it's a great idea to take your bridals ahead of time. 1- It takes away some stress from the wedding day to get pictures of just you two. 2- You can choose a super awesome location that usually would be too far away and inconvenient on your wedding day. 3- You can have them printed so that on your wedding day you can use the pictures as decoration. 4- Wedding pictures can usually take a while to edit, so if you take pictures before then you have some wedding pictures all ready to post online. The list goes on and on.
