Small, intimate and heartfelt backyard weddings hold a special place in my heart. You may remember this adorable couple and their awesome bulldog, Sampson, from their engagement photos. Sampson was Sidney’s Dog of Honor which I thought was just about the cutest thing I have ever seen. More weddings with dogs please! I was in awe over how well behaved Sampson was throughout the whole day, even with all of the hustle and bustle. Sidney & Jason got married in Sidney’s parents East Mesa home near the Usury Mountains & Superstition Mountains- a stunning backdrop if you ask me! The day was a windy one and the forecast for the day was 30 mph winds and rain, but the sun came out and the winds died down just for Sidney & Jason on their beautiful wedding day. It was truly an honor and blessing to be a part of their beautiful day & be treated like a trusted friend. Thank you, Sidney & Jason & Sampson, for having me be a part of your day!
This funny photo of Sampson, Sidney & Jason’s dog, peeking out from under her dress is my new favorite!
Jason’s grandparents couldn’t make it, so he called them as the ceremony started so they could hear the ceremony and their vows.
A big thanks to Galaxie for being my second shooter & helping me despite having a nasty cold!
