after shooting near the mine, we drove around in search of more lovely scenery for photos. we pulled over on the side of the road to take some shots on a classic desert landscape-- paloverdes, creosote, prickly pears, and a majestic saguaro. i thought my dress blended well with this terrain, and it felt good stickin' to my arizona roots and taking some desert shots. so glad we stopped here.
next we headed back into superior--this was the goofiest little town you have ever seen! pretty run down, but there were lots of interesting photo opportunities here: an old high school, a rustic building, and murals on about every other wall. plus, everyone in town was super friendly! every time somebody drove or walked by they would stop and day hi to us and dote over our wedding apparel. "awwww!! you're getting married! congratulations!!!"--almost every person. we were the biggest stars in superior that day.
being a major horse-lover, i couldn't pass up taking some pics in front of this colorful pony mural. so cute! cami told us to get "crazy". . . how did we do?
it was a long and rigorous photoshoot. jacob carrying me over his shoulder in my big, immobile wedding dress through the desert terrain + nasty lil' gnats flying in our faces + lots of driving + lots of posing + more driving + lots more posing. not to mention, i had to change (literally) on the side of the road as well as a very questionable public bathroom, BUT it was a lot of fun and definitely worth all the effort. wouldn't you agree?
well, that concludes the bridal photos. hope you like! many more photos from the wedding day to be posted soon!
