Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

Analisha + Jeremy: A Colorful Wedding at Shadow Hills Country Club

July 19, 2022

Bright, gorgeous color filled this entire wedding day at Shadow Hills Country Club! Whether it came from the stunning pops of color from the bouquets or the blooms around this venue, color was everywhere. Shadow Hills Country Club is an absolute perfect backdrop to tie the knot! The landscaping, willow trees, and fountain out front is enough to take your breath away.

The Wedding Day

This wedding was extra special for me because the bride is a personal friend of mine! I met her at our church before she moved with her family to Arizona. It has been such a treat to get to know Jeremy through this time as well. Together they are hilarious, goofy, caring, and have some of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. When they reached out to me and wanted me to photograph their wedding day I felt so honored! Spending this day with them and so many of our church friends and family was such a treat!

This wedding had so many special touches. The colors had me swooning ALLLLL day! Seas of bright pinks, deep purples, blues, and lavendar mixed in between with greens. It was a color DREAM! The stunning archway was handmade by one of their relatives! It was so rustic and gorgeous! The emotions flowed from the father-daughter first look to the ceremony and special dances. I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite moment. The whole day was incredible! I wish these two a lifetime full of joy, love, and laughter together. Thank you so much for trusting me to capture these precious moments at Shadow Hills Country Club. I can’t wait to see you both again…maybe in Arizona!

    Dear Joni-
    I want to tell you Thank you for all the AMAZING & BEAUTIFUL photos that you captured of my niece (Analisha) and nephew in law (Jeremy) wedding!! I sadly couldn’t be there and shed tears because I was missing my Favorite Oldest Nieces wedding. ( I really don’t have a favorite, but she says she is. Lol) While viewing these photos I could see and hear her laughs, smiles, and happy tears. You did a FANTASTIC job. Analisha and Jeremy definitely didn’t miss a single thing. Thank you from her favorite Aunt ! Lol
