melanie + tyson | edmonton destination wedding photographer

This may be a long post… So brace yourselves.

I remember when I got the initial email about a potential wedding abroad – I get quite a few emails so I didn’t really hold my breath for too long. I tend to get my hopes up, I begin to dream and imagine what the day would be like; and well I work in an industry with some incredibly talented people and you don’t always fit the shoe you could say.

This particular wedding was for Phoenix, Arizona. I have never been to Arizona minus the airport. However having just photographed a wedding in Texas, and previously I have photographed weddings in Las Vegas I knew that the desert held a special place in my heart. There is something unmistakably beautifully about the sun setting against red rock. Nothing; and I mean *NOTHING* compares to a sunset in the desert.

Then it happened; Melanie booked me with only a bit of notice and I was going to wrap up my season photographing a wedding which would turn into one that may rank in the top 3 experiences of my career.

Don’t get me wrong either – every wedding I approach with the mindset that I want it to be different; I don’t believe in cookie cutter experiences and I go into every photography experience almost under prepared. Don’t freak out when I say that; I don’t like to have expectations for a day because every wedding day can change. Nothing remains the same. Things can always go sideways and be altered. There is something inside me that brings out the creativity when I get to just let my imagination go. When I just let the ideas naturally flow, when my couples inspire me, when the location that day speaks to me I like to seize it. I know that may sound cheesy; but it’s true. I love to let the story of the day be truly represented in photos. You can’t pose love, I believe in capturing it and helping place you in beautiful locations.

I scouted locations for this wedding and I knew I wanted to send Melanie and Tyson home with images that reflected Phoenix and Arizona. I found red rock. Cacti. I found the desert. Melanie and Tyson; I don’t even know where to begin with these two. They are special; and for me to not be able to put it into words how I feel is rather rare. Kind, appreciative, unique, one in a million are some words that come to mind.

This day was about them – their love. Their journey. Their beginning and the start to a beautiful story. Surrounded by love they exchanged heart felt and tear jerking vows. Their family was never far from their minds and it was a big part of the day. So many made the journey to Arizona so you never questioned for a minute how deep the love ran.

Melanie and Tyson – gosh, I honestly can not say thank you enough for taking me on this journey with you; to be able to be apart of your story. You’ve touched my heart and career in a way that I may never be able to truly say thank you or find a way to repay you. I wish you both an eternity of happiness. Thank you.
