Being with friends is always a good thing. Melanie’s mom, Michelle, has been our friend for longer than I care to admit. This was a really special day for us. We also shot the wedding for three of the couples who are friends of Melanie and Michael, and I’ve known one of those brides, Mandy, since she was eight when we shot her for an ad for her dad’s store. Great friends, a great location (The Royal Palms in Phoenix), and a great wedding. It doesn’t get much better than that. If you would like to see Melanie and Michael’s entire slideshow click here.
