We can't believe it's already been three years since we said "I do", surrounded by family and friends  at our backyard wedding in Tucson, Arizona.

Our wedding day was so special, you guys. We have a group of wonderful family and friends who surrounded us with love and made our backyard wedding something that we would never forget. It was spring time in Tucson, the wildflowers were in full bloom and like most things in our life, we envisioned a wedding day that was colorful and full of joy. It was such a blessing to get married in Betsy's parent's backyard. We did everything ourselves, with the help of our very patient friends and family. We had very little experience with weddings at this point, but by the grace of God, everything came together beautifully. Though trends have changed and our personal style has evolved, we wouldn't change a thing, even if we could.  

It was March 15, 2014 and we had only shot a handful of weddings at that point. We had just discovered the resurgence of film photography and absolutely fell in love with the look and feel of it. We found Constance Higley (who unfortunately doesn't offer wedding photography anymore) and knew she would be the perfect fit for our big day. Our wedding put a spark in our hearts for documenting love stories. Its been an incredible journey and we can only hope that our clients love and appreciate their wedding photos as much as we do our own. We hope you enjoy this tiny glimpse into the start of our life together. Thanks for sharing in our joy, friends. 

With love, 

Betsy & John
