Britani + Adis Wedding Preview

As you may recall from their engagement session...these guys do a lot of kissing. If you are scared of expressions of love etc etc etc, run away now! If not, try to keep up as we take a quick peek into the big day of one of the sweetest couples I know.

I have to say, these two are amazing. I feel like I have known them forever. They have been together since highschool and are so incredibly devoted to one another- its just incredible to be around them.

Britani and Adis were married last week at a sweet little waterfront Scottsdale restaurant surrounded by close friends and family. I was lucky enough to be there to capture every moment. It was beautiful!

I can not believe how Adis makes Britani laugh...its incredible. Here, he had been admonished by the judge for jumping the gun on his vows. I don't think I have ever seen a groom this enthusiastic about marrying the love of his life.
You know, if you look around you, you can find all sorts of interesting things. This wall for example...is Chipotle. Aside from tasty burritos, they usually have some kind of cool texture somewhere that I can borrow. There just happened to be a Chipotle in the same parking lot as the resturuant.... awesome!

Britani and Adis had such a unique cake! Folds of fondant covered it and gave the appearance that the cake was draped in striped satin! Absolutely gorgeous.

The downside with a very personal wedding at a smaller venue is the limitations of settings for portraits. This is easily solved by doing seperate bridals. Additionally this means guest aren't stuck waiting for a long time for the bride and groom after the ceremony to get their portraits done. We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon at the garden, enjoying the warm light and last few days of the glass exhibit. I admit, I am going to cry when it leaves next week.

Despite the garden being very crowded, we found plenty of great areas to escape the crowds.

Britani's something blue. If I were not addicted to shoe photos, I might have missed it. Such a creative touch!

Britani and Adis's bridals were also the inagural shoot for the new 5D Mark II (affectionately named Jimmy). I have to say it is so nice! Photogs, if you are on the fence on getting one...get off it and go get it already!

On a personal note, I love weddings where I start with clients and end with new friends. I am so fortunate to be able to do something I love that lets me meet all sorts of wonderful people. I am greatful every day for the opportunity.

Their slideshow is absolutely worth watching. There were soooo many images I could not put into the post itself that made it into the slide show.
