Briana & Ricardo | Hacienda Del Sol Tucson Arizona Wedding

Awesomefragilistic. OK maybe that’s not a word, but I was trying to think of something hip and cool to describe how cool this wedding was! Brianna & Ricardo are the worlds coolest newlyweds right now. So if you see them, make sure you get their autograph. I’ve had such an awesome time working with both of them and feel honored to have been able to photograph their wedding! They traveled from Texas (Tucson is home) for their wedding and picked one of the coolest places in Tucson: Hacienda Del Sol Resort. I shot Melissa & Brad’s wedding here 3 months ago as well for all of you blog stalkers that can remember :)

I knew this would be a fun wedding when we met for the first time back in December for their totally awesome engagement photos. Brianna and the girls started at Gadabout Salon for hair and makeup, then we all boogied over to the resort to get ready, awesome portraits and a party like none other. The week preceding the wedding was very beautiful weather, and we were hit with a scorching day during the wedding. Nonetheless, we had a rockin time and cannot wait to start working on their totally awesome album. Thanks again to the both of you!

For future and potential brides, here’s some info on the wedding:

As they were walking away from the ceremony location, I’m here walking backwards grabbing this shot.  10 seconds later, I trip over a small sidewalk lamp and fall flat backwards.  Luckily I was in the shade, and the crowd in the sun, so I don’t know if many people saw it.  I’m still hoping it turns up on YouTube :)

Kyle grabbed this one as well, as you can see me in the far right of the frame.  Grandma was triumphal in her dance with Ricardo and is now accepting her applause by the guests :) brianna ricardo hacienda del sol wedding tucson arizona photography

    I wish I could get married again and have you shoot our photos. :) I love the one with the bride, groom, and bridal party with the mountains behind them. Looks like a shot right out of a magazine.
