it’s funny how many times we catch ourselves thinking, “how do we always get so lucky with the greatest clients?” and we were reminded of this feeling over and over again as we interacted with spencer + amanda. they are two of the kindest, brightest individuals and one incredible couple.
anna met spencer while studying abroad in spain several years ago, and really, he couldn’t have found a better match than amanda! the more that we talked to them about what they wanted out of their wedding photos and films, the more excited we became about their big day! sealed at the ever gorgeous gilbert lds temple, the day was topped off with exploration of the nearby desert landscapes (jumping cacti included) for portraits and a quaint backyard reception filled with pies, bistro lights, and frank sinatra. amanda looked stunning, and spencer looked so dapper. and can you believe those florals?! one of our favorite bouquets to date.
when we asked what amanda hoped for most out of her wedding photos, she said, “i just really want happy photographs!” and given their non-stop grins all day, i would say that we accomplished just that. as dc-based destination wedding photographers, having the chance to travel so often for work is the most inspirational. and those cacti and palm trees and arizona sunsets were easy inspiration! i’d say the jumping cactus wounds were worth it; wouldn’t you?
to the johnsons: we love you! thanks so much for including us in your wedding day.
anna + mateo
p.s. a special thanks to our crazy talented second shooter kirsten for flying out from the bay and helping!
