STAGE ME FANCY, A Home Staging Company

2015-10-27_012

First off, I love the name and her company fits its name.

Kelly Reynolds owns this redesign and staging company and she helps homeowners and agents sell their empty properties faster.

Just last week she staged this house and we were hired to photograph her “after” pictures.

This Scottsdale home has the location, the amenities and the best part is that you feel like you were home as soon as you walk in.

Let’s Talk About

The Glamourous Life of Motherhood…

 

2015-08-28_002

This beautiful mama-to-be has been photographed by us several times over the last 5 years…. we first met her on set shortly after her Miss Arizona 2009 crowning, then we photographed her again after her 2014 crowning and now we had the privileged to photograph her during this amazing part of her love story.

 

Motherhood is such a special time in a woman’s life, and the daily changes are reminders of how precious and awesome human life is.

 

Our  Love story and Life Stories films are short story movies that bring your photo session to life. 

These films will become a normal part of our everyday packages in 2016 and we are delighted to share with you, a little piece of her love story.

Follow us, to see her love story unfold.

Groom Drops Bride at their wedding …and yes, they live happily ever after.

2014-11-06_003

This is by far the coolest couple to have, when you’re the witness to their GRAND entrance and it is more than you expected it to be. To see this brides {PLAN A} wedding take a turn towards her worst fear coming true, but that wont stop this little lady from her happily ever after.

2014-11-06_006

We are happy to set the scene for you:

It’s sunset on October 11th 2014. The bride and groom formals are complete and the guests are in their seats. As her groom takes her drink from her hand, and scoops her off her feet…the DJ yells their name. She has one single thought running through her head, instead of stopping him, she decided to throw caution to the wind and simply let go and enjoy the ride. Allowing her husband to call the shots. Her only worry was {and it was the same thought we had}, she hoped her beloved husband would NOT drop her. However, it did not go as planned and in all our years of photographing, we had never been witness to an entrance like this. She said it best in this statement, ” Think your Grand Entrance is better than mine? I think not!” Mrs. Julia Kannard

So, we got in position like we always do. We first photographed the wedding party dancing towards the bar, as the roar of the crowd got louder, they welcomed the newly married couple into the party with cheers. As they make it down the final stretch of concrete, all of sudden, you just knew something was about to go wrong, terribly wrong.

Like every love story, we got the shots, { but this time it was just a little more exciting } and after making sure our couple was ok, we continued to capture their memories. The rest of the night was just as magical, it was picture perfect.

If you would like to see their video here it is: http://youtu.be/Z5NdssyIVA0?list=UUT-gZaZDYmIuPA5bEjo2Ovw

As seen on the Ellen Show but so far My favorite was this interview: http://www.rightthisminute.com/video/rtmtv-bride-groom-wedding-marriage-drop-fail-ouch-love  [ However, if it makes it on The Tonight Show, then that will probably become my Favorite…yes I am a huge fan. ]

After it was all over, many had commented how she managed to take a tumble like that and still keep her bouquet in her hand. Others on how she wasn’t concerned about her dress being ruined or how she kept going without shedding a tear or a fighting word towards her new hubby.

My take on it, is how cool and collective her body was during the whole scene. In our shots, even her legs and dress were performing with lady like poise. Sort of a flying curtsey, if you will. Yes, the entrance was grand but for me this was by far the most memorable vow ceremony I’ve ever heard. Their spoken from the heart vows, touched me to shed a tear, the friendships they have, you just know will stand the test of time as witnessed in the video: when the Best Man, lived up to his title and not only was he there to lend his bro a helping hand to bring him to his feet, but he would also help scoop the bride up right beside him. For us, that is a true Love Story and that’s why we do what we do.

We are very proud to introduce to you Mr & Mrs Kannard.
