Alyssa and Alvaro’s wedding at The Barn at Cottonwood Ranch was amazing. One of the coolest things about being a wedding photographer is getting to be there for one of your couple’s most unforgettable moments in their life and getting to meet all the important people in their lives. By the end of the wedding day, I feel like a member of the fam and truly adore everyone I meet.
What’s even cooler is getting to see all those people again when the Bride and Groom recommend me to their friends or family that get engaged and are looking for a wedding photographer. I met Jackie through a photography group on Facebook and shot her and Chris’s wedding back in 2017. Since then, I have photographed Chris’s cousin’s wedding (Ryan and Estefania) and now Jackie’s cousin’s that you’ll see below with Alyssa and Alvaro’s wedding. I seriously can’t tell you how freaking cool it is to be trusted with photographing so many family life events. My job is just the coolest.
Alyssa and her dad had the sweetest first look just before she and Alvaro met, without seeing each other, to pray together before their ceremony.
How incredible is the barn?!
Alyssa and Alvaro stayed inside for one final dance together. Just the two of them, while their guests all went outside to get ready for the sparkler exit. I LOVE this!!!
