ARRAH & MICHAEL - MARRIED! THINK PINK…

asp_restifo_1

Okay, seriously…I am so in love with Arrah and Michael’s gorgeous wedding! You should probably know that Arrah and I share a common love of pink, that will explain the beginnings of my feelings about their simply fantastic wedding day. Then, I should probably mention that the venue and vendors she choose to work with are out of this world! And follow that up with the only day the whole summer that lacked humidity, and even got CHILLY at the end of the evening - and you end up with one of the best events of the year in Birmingham!

If you follow this blog, you may remember Arrah and Michael from their engagement shoot in Las Vegas. If you missed it, definitely check out some of their rock-star images here and here.

I’m saving the reception images for another post, because they deserve their own moment of glory. Let’s just leave it at that. I may or may not have done some Beyonce dancing…along with the Band (who are absolutely fabulous)! Okay, I really am leaving it there. Come back soon for a behind the scenes look at a truly booty-licious party…can I say that on the blog? I just did…

As they say - LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! And dangit, The Sonnet House is one of the very best locations in the Southeast. The venue is impeccable in every way, and the owners are just delightful to work with. Guys, I would love to be a vendor of yours any day! It’s always so much fun to shoot there and work with them!

Making this pink extravaganza become a reality is the lovely Jill Sampson of Weddings By Jill out of Montgomery, Alabama. I’ve NEVER seen any of her work that I didn’t love. What great style, and a sense of fun - which comes from her fun-loving personality. She is detail oriented in every way, and a true creative genius. The entire theme; all floral arrangements, lighting design, cake design, layouts, were all her vision and creation. I’m including some fun views in this post!

Arrah is such a knock-out! What a great bride to work with - she has such a sense of fun and glamour about her, and yet a tender heart. More than anything, she is loving and hilarious. She makes me laugh until I cry. And thoughtful too! She brought me Red Bull to the wedding. A girl after my own heart.

Her relationship with Michael is hard to put into words. I love the way he cares for her and serves her. Consistently putting her before himself. It was so evident how deeply he loves her in our few days we’ve spent together. Michael is a gentleman through and through. I can’t wait to see them grow as husband and wife. Two people would be hard pressed to find a better foundation and launching point for a marriage.

I loved watching Michael watch Arrah walk down the aisle - what joy! Above all, I had the privilege of watching them marry their best friend. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you both, travel with you, capture your most intimate and special moments. You gave me an incredible gift and I’m blessed to have gotten to know you and call you friends…

ARRAH & MICHAEL DO VEGAS - SNEAK!

asp_michaelarrah_3

Yea for fun sneaks! A couple of weeks ago I headed out to Las Vegas for Michael and Arrah’s Engagement Session, and thought I would throw out a few images on the BRAND NEW BLOG for everyone to check out.

There is oh so much to tell from this trip. And contrary to how the saying goes, what happens in Vegas doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas when you bring along a professional photographer with a blog…

Check back for all the fun and craziness soon, as well as some truly spectacular images. Most importantly though, you really don’t want to miss out on the wild ride that was Michael and Arrah’s Engagement Session all over Vegas!
