ASHLEY TSCHETTER + MIKE PELTON :: MARRIED AT SHEPHERD OF THE DESERT LUTHERAN CHURCH – SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA

I love my job.  I get to meet some of the most amazing people when photographing weddings.  Ashley & Mike – & really, everyone involved in the wedding day – were amazing!  Such sweet, laid back people that rolled with the punches…. (Literally, by accident, I slightly, very lightly… punched the bride…  That may be the very last time I help reposition a sliding wedding dress.)

So Ashley & Mike planned their entire Arizona wedding from their home in San Francisco.  Everything from the family church to the Scottsdale reception at Regale was gorgeous.  Ashley looked stunning in her Schaffer’s wedding gown & Mike looked very regale himself in his tux with the classic bow tie (I love that bow ties are making a comeback!!).  It’s very rare that I have a wedding – not even considering a multiple location wedding – that goes perfectly on time, but this one did.  Made for some amazing moments & plenty of time with my bride & groom.  Again, I love my job.  🙂
