In late December, we were given the amazing opportunity to capture Christine and Zach’s wedding at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort in Scottsdale, AZ.
Christine and Zach actually live in Chicago with their combined family of 5 children. The boys are hers, the girls are his, and now they’re one big blended family! It’s always so special when people from out of state contact us about wedding photography for a destination wedding or an elopement. Since Chicago this time of year is freezing, Christine and Zach were hoping to escape to the warmer climates of Scottsdale. So, they surprised their family and a small group of friends with plane tickets to bring them out to Scottsdale for the occasion. Unfortunately, the desert doesn’t always cooperate. The temperatures can drop when you least expect it! This Scottsdale wedding may not have been as warm as they expected, but we were so honored that they invited us to be a part of it. It was a brisk, beautiful sunny day, and it was such an awesome time.
