Kat and Jerry's Intimate Wedding at Sanctuary Resort in Paradise Valley
Sep 18, 2020 | By: Sydney Sherman
Hi everyone, Sydney here! I wanted to write a personal message for this one since it was so special. Please enjoy!
Since it's the five of us women behind this business, we usually post these blog posts communicating as a team. However, I felt this was the perfect opportunity to dive in and tell you the story behind our newest photography offering: Intimate Weddings! We had retired from photographing large weddings several years ago because we found the hustle and bustle of large weddings to not always be conducive to intimate family moments, which are really what we love. However, having photographed three gorgeous, small ceremonies within the last year, the door in my heart has just been swung wide open. As a team, we feel magnetized to taking on more of these smaller types of weddings. I find them so inspiring and incredibly special.
And so without further ado, I'd love to introduce you to Kat and Jerry, our latest bride and groom. These two lovebirds have inspired us to make this announcement. Our relationship with them began after connecting through one of our beloved clients, and the rest was history. An instant “yes” came spilling out of my mouth when she first called to ask if we would photograph her wedding because I just felt an instant connection. I heard their triumphant story over their recent battles, about their fresh move to AZ, their adventure in planning a wedding in only two weeks... I loved every ounce of it! Allison and I prepared to give it our all as we discussed the shoot in the days before.
Finally, on a Monday evening at exactly 9:10 pm, with perfect astrological alignment, we captured these authentic moments that made my heart sing. Allison and I took in every ounce of emotion radiating from this special day while capturing it all on film. I feel so grateful for the inspiration that has been reignited with these types of intimate weddings. It makes me feel so grateful for the 17 years in the business with my mother, Rita Sherman. She has pioneered and led us through the 27-year journey of achieving and maintaining a studio that holds such high standards and integrity. The fact that we are able to open up our capacity as a studio to photograph intimate weddings like these is something that we will never take for granted, and we can hardly wait for the next perfect couple to walk into our lives.
