Melissa & Brad | Hacienda del Sol Wedding in Tucson Arizona

I had the awesome opportunity to work with Melissa & Brad for the wedding party this past June.  I shot some engagement portraits of them over 1 year ago before they had their wedding plans finalized, but they ended up “eloping” so to speak and decided to throw a killer party for their family and friends.  This was the first time I had photographed a wedding at the Hacienda Del Sol resort and boy was I pleasantly surprised how quaint and awesome the location was.  Hacienda del Sol provides a very intimate and southwestern atmosphere that I fell in love with really quickly.  Suffice to say its one of my new wedding venues to photograph at.  Combine that with a couple and family that knows how to party and you have one heck of a party :)

I wish I could give props to those who assembled all of the details for the wedding, the wedding cake, food and flowers were just superb.  Some of the best wedding food I’ve eaten to date!  I love how the sun hit the buildings in the late afternoon and there is just so much ambient space on the inside of the courtyard for available light wedding portraits; so relaxed :)   I get to photograph another wedding here next month and I’m totally stoked for this one.  Congrats again Melissa & Brad for an awesome wedding and awesome couple to work with!

Oh ya, almost forgot that they had a TOTALLY rockin’ photo BOOTH!  All the stops were pulled out for this one, there were a couple of shots that are just off the wall, don’t know if I can post on the blog though :)

Check out the vendors here, they all did a fantastic job! Haceinda del Sol

These girls were just hams all day long, not even kidding, but it was cute.  One of them even offered me money for every picture I’d take that day.

This party was happenin’!  I wish I got the DJs business card, he rocked it the entire night.  This was like 3 days after Jackson passed away, so playing Thriller just meant that much more
