These two are one of the most adoring couples I’ve ever worked with. They are so kind and gentle with each other and I really enjoyed shooting their pre-wedding session in Sedona. They have a unique story because they’re breaking tradition with their upcoming wedding at the Scottsdale Resort. They’re technically already married but will finally get to celebrate with the whole family later this year! They also are working backwards because Venu never had the chance to properly propose to his beautiful wife before they got married…so he surprised her during their session and got down on one knee and gave her a gorgeous diamond ring. It was so sweet and emotional and I felt lucky to get to photograph that moment for them! I’m so excited for their wedding and can’t think of two people who belong together more than these two!

Franne’s life changed forever on Saturday when her now-fiancé asked her to become his wife in an epic Pretty Woman inspired proposal. Pretty Woman just happens to be Franne’s favorite movie so Richard knew he had to plan the proposal around one of the ending scenes where Richard Gere pulls up to Julia Roberts’ apartment in a big limo shouting her name then continues to climb up the fire escape, despite his fear of heights, to give her roses and win her heart. Richard’s proposal was just like the movie but even better. Franne had been told that she was going to a work function so she got all ready then Richard slipped out of the house and left her with the first pink envelope telling her in fact it was not a work function she was going to and that a limo would be picking her up. Through a series of several pink envelopes (that all had quotes from the movie I might add), she ended up on the roof-top pool at the San Carlos Hotel in downtown Phoenix where she was serenaded by live violin and guitar music, got a snack of her favorite chocolates and diet coke, and got to enjoy a beautiful set up of roses and props from the movie Pretty Woman! When it was time for the big event, she received her last envelope saying “I want the fairytale.” Franne was led by the hotel staff to the building’s fire escape where Richard was pulling up shouting her name. He ascended the stairs and proposed to the love of his life while the theme song of the movie was being played live. It was the sweetest moment ever and I could not possibly be happier for these two.
Here’s part two of Shelly & Adam’s wonderful Jewish wedding! You can check out part one here. Their cocktail hour was held before the ceremony in a museum named after Shelly’s grandmother. It was so neat! Enjoy! :)
Each guest got a unique gift with their table number! Ladies got little tins of tea and the men got groups of golf tees.
