Kim + Dylan :: wedding story


KIM KAY + DYLAN TOMLIN :: MARRIED AT MCDOWELL MOUNTAIN GOLF CLUB – SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA

What an absolute joy it was to work with Kim & Dylan(& their absolutely hilarious wedding party)!  Kim repeatedly expressed the importance of the final images & opted for not only the first look & a large part of our day spent at DC Ranch Marketstreet to add variety to our formals, but also for a 2nd wedding day photographer due to the larger bridal part & multiple site wedding day.  Excellent choice!  Because of these decisions, we ended up with final wedding images like this…

You wouldn’t know it, but we’re getting ready in a public restroom in the middle of DC Ranch.  Cute right?!

Dylan, THIS is why I love first looks!  You’re expressions & tangible excitement in seeing Kim for the very first time in that gorgeous wedding gown is why these images work out so perfectly.  <<swoon>>2014-04-07_00162014-04-07_00172014-04-07_00182014-04-07_00192014-04-07_0014

I’d hire this bridal party for every wedding.  Seriously, they were hilarious.

Of course, the wedding ceremony was held on the gorgeous course of McDowell Mountain Golf Club on the windiest day Scottsdale – perhaps all of Arizona – has had so far this year…  Nestled against a mountain & on open ground makes for hurricane force winds.  You wouldn’t know it though by the lack of stress  general carefree-manner of Kim.  She was amazing!!2014-04-07_0031 2014-04-07_0032

I love this shot so much!!!  I don’ usually get the attention of the groom just as ceremony’s starting, but Dylan looked back, right into the lens as Kim started down the aisle.  His excitement was contagious!  ❤2014-04-07_0033 2014-04-07_0034 2014-04-07_0035 2014-04-07_0036
