I am so excited to share this stunning classic Gather Estate wedding with you! Where do I start with these two? Last summer when I decided to fully rebrand, I put out a model call looking for real couples, madly in love, that would let me dress them and model for me in return for a gallery! I don’t do this often, but my full rebrand needed some updated current work! Danielle reached out to me and we immediately scheduled a date to get her and Adam in front of my camera! Boy was I excited!
Danielle and Adam happened to be a Monique Hessler couple (what are the odds? If you didn’t know, I shoot for her and her team!) and their engagement session with her had to be canceled due to the pandemic. So I was even more excited to serve them and capture this special time for them as they had no engagement photos to document this exciting moment in their lives! We obviously needed to change that! We met in the middle of the desert and these two showed up in the most perfect outfits and even better, madly in love! It was such a breath of fresh air to capture their connection with one another after not capturing a session for so long due to the pandemic.
When Monique reached out saying I could be a third shooter at their wedding last October I could not wait to surprise them on their big day! I showed up, masked up, and popped into the bridal suite with Riane. Riane walked in and said to Danielle, “I have a surprise for you..” I walked around the corner, it took Danielle a minute to figure out who I was, thanks masks.. but she was so excited I was there, as was I! It was so special that I got to be a small part of their engagement and then also a small part on their wedding day. It is crazy that just a few months prior I didn’t know them at all!
I am so excited to share these images with you from Danielle & Adam’s special day at Gather Estate in Mesa, Arizona.
