Scottsdale Engagement Session | Dante & Carly

I've known Carly since our high school days back at Desert Vista. She always had an easy laugh and likeability about her that didn't put her into one finite catergory that so often defines high school days. Everyone loved her and her smile was infectious. With such an amazing personality she dsereved to find someone that would be just as amazing, and she definitely found that perfect partner in Dante. Their session was so much fun and that same smile can back tenfold as her sweet hubby to be wrapped his arms around her. It was such a cool experience to see her loved so well and see that laugh come back as she found the one that she was meant to be with. Carly and Dante I am so ecstatic for you guys as you begin this journey towards marriage. Thank you so much for letting me capture these once in a lifetime moments. Best to you guys!

" Every time it hits me that I get to marry my best friend, it always makes me smile. As cliche as that expression may sound, I don't believe its the norm for the majority of people who end up together. To start a relationship as truly friends allowed us to take all the masks off and just be real from the start. Dating her, after knowing and living with her for years, felt as natural as any start to a relationship I could have ever imagined. I read a quote a while back that said, "it is rare to find love in this world to think that I beat the odds and realized what was right in front of me. I can't imagine any other scenario playing out, other than me holding on to her for the rest of my life." - Dante.

Trying to narrow down the one quality about Dante that I couldn't live without is so hard to answer. There really isn't one quality. He is by far one of the most genuine, intelligent, kind, and funny men I know. Dante was my best friend for over 5 years before we started dating and I always knew he was such a fantastic guy. I am so grateful that we took that leap of faith to give "us" a try and let the rest of our story unfold." - Carly
"I knew I wanted to marry him very quickly into us dating. The ease of our relationship was a sign to the both of us, that this was going to be it. I knew I wanted to marry him on several occasions...and I remember I was wondering if he would propose on my 30th bday in Disneyland in December. My entire family and close friends were with us and I was so incredibly happy. He didn't propose then...but I knew after a wedding in Hawaii (July) that I was just hoping he would propose." - Carly
"The thing I am looking to the most about living life with Carly is continuing to build on our memories. As she would tell you, it's ALL about the stories. I've had some amazing ones with her over the years as just friends, and some even more amazing ones as anything but just friends. Can't wait to see what memories are in store as our story together unfolds." - Dante
"Our first kiss was in May 2014 the night of our friend's 30th birthday. We hadn't started dating, but all had a fun night out and it just happened! The next day, everything changed and we just basically fell into our new relationship. It was very easy since we had been living together already for a year and half and all that changed, was the fact that we were now sitting next to each other on the couch. I remember thinking how comfortable this was, but also the fact of how crazy it was...since it was Dante! My best friend for so long and now, we were looking at each other differently. " - Carly
"As crazy as it sounds i knew I was in love with Dante when we were in Hawaii. Going to a tropical paradise to see my good friend get married, and I knew there wasn't single other person i'd rather be there with. Having a blast for 4 days and seeing her interact with my mom and dad...i knew i had found my one." -Dante

We could not have been more thrilled to capture these two on their wedding day! After a torrential downpour at their Northern Arizona Engagement Session in Heber  and seeing nothing but smiles from these two, I was looking so forward to watching these two say their I do's. 

Their romantic wedding day did not disappoint. Jenni and Alex, man you two are just incredible! Thank you so much for letting us be there to capture your one perfect day! We hope you enjoy these moments as much as we enjoyed watching them unfold. 

All our best, 
Jenn and the Studio girls 

"Getting to be married to Alex is the greatest gift.  Alex and I waited until we were married to move in together, and I believe that getting to enjoy falling asleep with him every night, and waking up in the morning next to him is the best part of marriage so far!"- Jenni

 "My favorite part of our wedding day had to be when I finally got to see Alex for the first time during our first look!  The whole day was wonderful, but I have to say that I started getting nervous and emotional as the morning started passing by. Every bride gets nervous, especially about being the center of attention for the entire day, but it all started to hit me all at once!  Even before seeing Alex, as I waited for the church doors to open to start walking towards him outside, I started to cry! I was so happy and our big day was finally happening!  Alex has always been the one person to comfort me and he’s always so laid back, he always knows what to say to put me back at ease.  The moment he turned around to see me for the first time, I immediately saw his smile, and everything was perfect, all the emotions and nervous jitters immediately faded away.  It was just him and I, and I knew in that moment, everything was perfect."- Jenni
"The thing I remember most is how beautiful Jennifer looked in her dress when we did the first look before the wedding ceremony. When talking to past bride and grooms, everyone talks about how nervous they got before the wedding. I was more relaxed, but anxious, before the wedding. When I first saw her, standing there and smiling in her dress, everything was perfect." - Alex

"While looking back on our wedding day, the most vibrant memory I have of Alex has to be the moment we started reciting our vows to each other.  It was the moment we both had been waiting so long for, and it was finally happening!  It was the way he looked into my eyes and smiled at me while we held hands and became man and wife… it was just unexplainably beautiful, powerful and wonderful!  A moment I will remember for the rest of my life!" -Jenni

"The toasts at the reception were epic. When you get the tables yelling and joking during the speeches, you know they were good. Especially when you see the dad's cry for the first time."- Alex
"The one funny story that always gets brought up since the wedding, at family get together's, is the cutting of the cake and Alex smashing the cake all over Jenny's face. Alex's sisters did Jenny's makeup and hair on the wedding day, and seeing/hearing their reactions when cake was being cleaned up from Jenny's face is priceless. I remember Jenny's God Father's Daughter smiling and encouraging to smear cake all over Jenny." - Alex

"All of the memories dancing with friends and family are always relived. Especially dance moves from the parents.. Nonstop laughing and we always find ourselves talking about how fun the reception was." Alex

Such a beautiful day!
