From the second I met Kim in person we clicked, we were Downtown and we had a headshot session scheduled. We walked the around talking and little did we know, we are personality twins! We shared so much about each other that day and let me just say that this woman is so resilient and beautiful, I was in awe of how positive and strong she is. I knew after that session that I would cry as she walked down that aisle and I was sure the man that would be waiting for her at the end of that aisle was going to be equally incredible. Marlin is truly amazing, he is a fantastic dad and now husband. The second I interacted with him during their engagement session I knew they were made for each other. He loves Kim so much, and from what she'd told me he is not a huge fan of pictures but because he loves his babe so much he can't help but smile when he's around her. So win - win for both of us.
I knew their wedding day was going to be perfection and guys it absolutely was! We had the most perfect weather all day Arizona totally came through! They tied the knot at The Ashley Castle in Chandler,AZ. Their entire tribe was so much fun, they were beyond sweet and ready to help in any given second, so much love was present that day. Their kids are the sweetest nicest children I have ever met! Seriously, you can tell how amazing parents they are by how incredible Andy and Laylah are! They had such a beautiful and heart felt ceremony, I cried during both of their vows they were so sincere and so much love was present there were no dry eyes in that ceremony I promise you. I can go on for ever and most likely finish writing an essay but I'm sure you all want to enjoy their images but before that...
To Kim and Marlin,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to capture such a monumental and sacred moment in your lives. I cried, I laughed and I am so thankful for your never ending kindness! You two deserve all the love and happiness there is. I know you have a battle ahead Kim, but you're going to kick butt! You inspire me every day to live my life to the fullest, to love my family more and more. To show my gratitude every day I wake up. If I can be 10% as resilient and strong as you are, girl I've got it made! For now and forever thank you!
