Allyson and James have so much love and respect for one another. They bonded first because of their love for running and triathlons, and they even went running on their first date where James started to fall in love with Allyson’s fun sense of humor and her beautiful sense of self. Their relationship is deep and is founded in their faith. They are an inspiration to all those looking for love and an example of selflessness to all those who in committed relationships.
Carefree Resort and Conference Center was the backdrop James and Allyson chose for their wedding day. Their ceremony complete with white blooms and a backdrop of mountains offered a romantic atmosphere for their ‘I Do’s’ and bistro lights and open air were the setting of the reception. Their details were classic, with a little touch of country with the bridal party sporting cowboy boots.
I first met Allyson while I was out photographing a wedding in Arizona. I ended up grabbing coffee with a friend at Piexoto Coffee in Chandler, Arizona. I was in the middle of asking the Barista a few questions about their menu when she walked in, looking a little stressed and offered to let her go ahead of me in line. She apologized for being in a hurry and explained she was running behind for her appointment to try on dresses at Uptown Bridal right next store. I handed her a card and said if she was still looking for a photographer I would love to chat with her about her wedding day. A few days later, I had an email in my inbox and the rest is history. A little serendipity brought us together and I think it was meant to be :).
Allyson and James, Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day! It was truly an honor and I’m so happy to give you images from your day to cherish for years to come!
