All I can think of while looking at these beautiful images of love are these song lyrics! Can you hear Louis Armstrong or Duke Ellington serenading our lovely couple now?

When you’re smilin’, when you’re smilin’
The whole world smiles with you
When you’re laughin’, oh when you’re laughin’
The sun comes shinin’ through

Congratulations to Larry and Cindy!


We celebrated Citro in style as Alexa and Dylan were wed at Clayton on the Park in Scottsdale, Arizona.  It was the day before it rained for the entire weekend, and it was so beautiful outside. Alexa and Dylan are clearly in love!  It was fun hearing the toasts about how the two of them met at their reception.   Her color choices for the wedding as you can see below were yummy, clean, and modern.  Lexi’s dress fit her as well as if the designer made that dress for her!!  Dylan was stylin and keeping it cool the whole day and watching his bride filled with awe and emotion, during the first look down the isle.  Marriage is never as perfect as the wedding photos but you can tell these two have what it takes!  I look forward to all God has for this fabulous, kind, and thoughtful couple!! Love you guys!!

Cole and Tori are supermodel status good looking I agree with you on that, but what I loved most about watching them interact together on their wedding day was how they made each other laugh.  That kind of joy in life is strengthening when real life hits, or you have a curve balls thrown your way.   Tori finds Cole to be hilarious, and Cole looks at Tori and smiles because she entertains him with her fun loving personality.  I could not be happier for these two, so glad they found one another.  It was a beautiful start to a wonderful life together ! Hold onto the laughter, and the joy it works like glue for holding all of us together in this life.

This engagement session was too hot to handle in many ways!  First lets talk about Alexa’s fabulous dress…I mean really could it be more prefect!? Dylan was a great sport looking handsome and taking pictures in a black suit in the heat of the summer.  I love the current trend of brides stepping up the E session attire and going after a glamours vibe.  The engagement pictures will set the tone for guests as they are often used on personal wedding websites and save the date cards.  The pictures were taken at Desert Botanical Garden.  It is a great location for desert landscapes especially when you are wearing heels…you can get the look of desert without the actual hiking!! The golden light and colors of the desert really are hard to beat!
