Katelyn + Greg | Arizona Romantic Wedding at Sanctuary Camelback


I met Katelyn and Greg at one of my weddings of their close friends! She saw me lying on the ground to get a shot and decided that she wanted me to be their photographer! She introduced herself that night and then introduced me to Greg as her photographer! It may have been the craziest and sweetest compliment I have ever gotten.  Fast forward through many texts, a venue walkthrough, emails and phone calls, it was finally time for their big day!! Over the last year and a half I have really come to love Katelyn and the love she has for her family.  She has a huge heart and is wise beyond her years.  She has welcomed Greg's son Sebastian as her own and she loves him fiercely.  We have had many talks about parenting, marriage, and all sorts of other fun subjects.  She has become more than my bride, but a friend! This job of mine could not get any better!! 

Katelyn and Greg met at the ER at the hospital they both worked at.  Greg was a doctor and Katelyn was a scribe....a newbie to the profession and going to school....and she definitely caught the eye of the doctor.  She was still deciding on what career path she wanted to take, so Greg took every opportunity to council her and encourage her to reach her goals.  Greg continued to pursue her and the rest is history!! She fell in love with his calm countenance, and how he kept her grounded in all things, especially when she can normally be the hot tamale that needs a little calming down.  Katelyn keeps Greg on his toes and keeps him young! Her beauty and smarts were what originally attracted him to her and then he realized that he was getting the total package.....just as beautiful on the inside as the outside!! Together, they are a perfect match!! They love to explore new restaurants together or just grill out at home and relax as a family.  They know what is truly important in life and make family time a top priority!! 

Katelyn + Greg, thank you for choosing me to capture your beautiful wedding day, and thank you for allowing me into your life! I am so excited for your future together and to see allllllll the Marchand babies in the future! <3 

Katelyn spent a lot of time planning every detail of this wedding at Sanctuary Camelback and everything came together beautifully!! Succulents, succulents, and more succulents!! She went with a modern flair and geometric and gold designs.  It was a DREAM!! We ended their night before sunset up on top of the mountain and got panoramic views of the city and the sky was showing off for us! Enjoy a little sneak peek of Katelyn + Greg's wedding day!
