Jenna & Ben – Scottsdale Wedding at ASU Kerr Cultural Center

Scottsdale Wedding at ASU Kerr Cultural Center- Scottsdale Wedding Photographer | Rachel Solomon Photography_1543

Jenna & Ben’s Scottsdale wedding at ASU Kerr Cultural Center was the stuff dreams are made of.  A true love story, across two continents, joined together in marriage among their closest friends and family.   When they first started getting to know each other, Jenna was struck by not only his accent (of course!) but also his intelligence, character and depth, and just melted when she first saw him!  ”He has made me happier than words could say.”  Ben first saw her and “lost my mind. She was the most beautiful girl I’d ever laid eyes on, and I knew there and then, that she was special.  She is everything, and more.”

It was a real treat to be able to document this special day for these two, in this historical setting.  They wrote their own vows, and they were some of the strongest most well written vows I’d ever heard.  Best wishes to you both in your marriage!

Kelsey & Carter – Scottsdale Engagement Photos

Scottsdale Engagement Photos

What a fabulous spring afternoon with Kelsey & Carter for their Scottsdale engagement photos!  These two met in college, Carter in a fraternity, Kelsey in a sorority, living in houses across the street from each other.  Time apart while Carter was in Spain and making through a rather crazy, yet funny, Thanksgiving dinner with Kelsey’s family, and they knew each other was “the one.”  They both have a great sense of humor and we had a really fun time together, laughing and getting to know each other!

Can’t wait for your wedding you two!!  Yay!

Lael & Raj – Desert Engagement Photos

Desert Engagement Photos

It doesn’t get more gorgeous than this Arizona light with Lael & Raj and their desert engagement photos.  They met through someone who thought they would be perfect for each other, and they were right!  They dated long distance for awhile, and one of Lael’s favorite memories is when Raj sent her roses he had dyed her favorite color, turquoise.  After Lael moved to Phoenix, Raj proposed on none other than the Jumbotron at an Arizona Cardinals game!  How awesome is that!  Also, may I just mention that they are also Hoosier fans?  Enough said.

I had such an amazing time with both of you, and I’m so pumped for your wedding in Maui!!  It’s going to be incredible!  Congrats on your engagement!!

Katie & Mike – Scottsdale Engagement Photos

Scottsdale Wedding Photographer | Rachel Solomon Photography_1463 What a fabulous spring afternoon with Kate & Mike for their Scottsdale engagement photos!  These two are just too sweet.  I asked Mike when he knew Katie was “the one.”  Here is what he had to say:

“I knew Katie on our third date when we were playing games in an arcade and winning a lot of tickets.  When it came time to spend the tickets and get anything she wanted, she got this silly paddle ball for only a couple of tickets and was so excited to play with it.  And then she gave the rest of the tickets to a little girl in the arcade.” 

Too sweet!!  Can’t wait for your wedding!  It’s going to be amazing!

Scottsdale Wedding Photographer | Rachel Solomon Photography_1437

Turned out to be a bit of a windy day for Nicole & Mycal and their Phoenix engagement photos at Papago Park!  That didn’t stop these two though!  Major hotness happening here!!  And if you can’t tell they are huge Crossfit crazies, I mean people, and Mycal has his own box at Crossfit PHX.  So awesome!  They even fell for each other after a Crossfit competition.   Soon Nicole will be moving to sunny Phoenix from the Chicago area and the wedding festivities shall begin!

So excited for your wedding!  Congrats to you both!!
