Meet Connor and Katie! They are one of my 2018 couples and I cannot wait for their wedding at Clayton on the Park next February! Want to know a fun little fact? Although I met them at the Arizona Bridal Show this past January, Connor, Katie and I (AND my husband) were all attending Illinois State University and walking around campus at the same time as each other. We all graduated within a couple years of each other. How crazy is that?! What a small world! So of course they were instantly my friends. They are super fun, laid-back, and obviously a perfect match. We have a tentative date this fall to tour the venue and have some good ole’ Chicago style pizza…because Chicago style pizza. Oh and beautiful venues 😉
Connor and Katie had essentially two half sessions because we got completely monsooned on in Tortilla Flat. Like out of nowhere. It was kind of tragically hilarious. But no big deal, we rescheduled for an early morning session a couple weeks later. Because this will be a destination wedding for a large majority of their guests, we wanted all the Saguaro cacti and desert-y landscape we could get. Thankfully Phoenix does not disappoint in desert landscape. Connor and Katie did a great job coordinated two separate outfits and being super sweet in front of the camera. I am so looking forward to their wedding day (and feeling at home with all of my midwest peeps ;)). Thank you, Connor and Katie, for choosing me to capture this important time in your life! Congratulations!
