STACY BRUNO + AYAX MARTINEZ :: MARRIED AT TRE BELLA, MESA ARIZONA

What an amazing couple!  And a fun bridal party!  My entire time with Stacy & Ayax was truly enjoyable.  Everything from the antics of the guys to the goofiness, candidness of the girls.  They were such a great group of people to work with!

Here’s their story

Ayax is a former Marine so wearing his DressBlues for his wedding day was significant.  So handsome!

The Marine sword was a huge hit all evening.  I don’t think it matters the age of a guy…. A sword is cool whenever.

The ladies were swoon-worthy in their unique black dresses  Stacy in her stunning wedding gown!  It was an absolutely perfect dress!

For Stacy & Ayax’s portraits we stuck close to Tre Bella & worked with the purple wall was well as The Underground.  Seeings as how it’s April in Arizona, we stuck to the shade.  🙂

You’re a stunner yourself, Ayax!  Something about a man in uniform, right?

Has to be, hands down, my favorite images of the day.  The yellow & gray of the wall just made this portraits sing!  Ayax’s uniform really brought it together too!

While Ayax’s son couldn’t make it, he was definitely there in thought.  A little tribute to him while I shot the rings.  Good thinking Eva!

This pretty much sums up my time with Ayax-this truly shows his character as he serenades Stacy on the dance floor.  Love this guy!
