CYRENA BRAIS + KIRT BRAIS :: WEDDING RECEPTION AT SAHUARO RANCH PARK, GLENDALE ARIZONA

Being a part of a momentous occasion, such as a wedding, is an honor for me.  No matter if it’s someone I’ve meet mere weeks before their day… or someone I’ve known & worked with for years & become friends with… As in the case of Cyrena.  So when earlier this year she contacted me about her August Reception & we started planning the photography (I honestly was vying for the trip to Hawaii in June to photograph the wedding!) I was more than honored; I was humbled.  Working with Cyrena & Kirt & their families has been such a simply joy in my life.  They are the most amazing people!

 I’m blessed to be able to tell this story.

Though we didn’t have much time for formals of the gorgeous bride & groom, we snuck a few moments to take advantage of the beautiful interior of the Fruit Packing House.  It’s amazing the opportunities present themselves in such simple elegance.2014-08-15_0010 2014-08-15_0011 2014-08-15_0012 2014-08-15_0013 2014-08-15_0014 2014-08-15_0015 2014-08-15_0016 2014-08-15_0017 2014-08-15_0018 2014-08-15_0019 2014-08-15_0020 2014-08-15_0021 2014-08-15_0022 2014-08-15_0023 2014-08-15_0024 2014-08-15_0025 2014-08-15_0026 2014-08-15_0027 2014-08-15_0028

Such a beautiful girl!  Love that I’ve been able to spend some cherished times, watching her & her brother grow up & spend some of the most important moments of their lives behind the camera!  ❤ them!!!
