This couple is near and dear to my heart. Paige and I have known each other for a while now and we met in an unlikely location: a tanning salon. When I first moved to the Scottsdale area, I went to a bronzing place near my place. It was my go-to location and was so sad when the owner told me she was moving. Well, the person who ended up taking over was Paige!
The salon had some pretty outdated black and white photos of their clients on the wall. I offered to take some new ones and we have been working together ever since! It’s been so great to see her grow with the business (which she now runs and runs it well!).
They held their ceremony and reception at the Paseo. There was desert landscape all around and the natural beauty of the Superstition Mountains in the distance.
Paige and Brayden actually met at Chik-fil-A while she was in college. They incorporated their funny “how we met” story into the wedding with little stuffed cows. We all joked they should have had them sponsor the wedding!
From start to finish their whole wedding was a ball of fun, and their wedding party was also so great to work with. You can tell they like to have a good time! The couple planned out their day-of timeline so well. This allowed me to create really special moments and take a ton of photos.
Paige’s veil was absolutely breathtaking. The cathedral length headpiece billowed in the wind against the open-air desert and added a wonderful dramatic element to her pictures. We were able to capture some romantic moments during the sunset. You couldn’t ask for a better background.
Brayden also rented out a sleek black Corvette for the day, so we did a mini photoshoot with him and the car. He was able to have his own special moment to show off his fun-loving and wild side!
Over the years I have loved working with Paige. From her bridal boudoir shoot, engagement session, and even the bronze bar, she is such a boss babe and I just want to support her and see her succeed! She is honestly one of my favorite people and we always have a blast together.
Paige and Brayden, my sincere congratulations once again and best wishes to the both of you on your next adventure!
