The R2 Studio and Liz our associate team photographer, were so excited when Cassi & Chris hired the R2 studio to capture their Tucson AZ wedding. When I first met Cassi and Chris for their flagstaff engagement session, I could tell then that Chris was definitely the laid back guy who helped keep Cassi grounded, and that Cassi helped Chris to add a little spunk to life, and reminds him to enjoy it to the fullest. They complimented each other perfectly. These qualities were more evident on their wedding day than ever!
When we first arrived to photograph Chris and Cassi’s wedding at Kartchner Caverns State Park in Benson, AZ this past weekend I was beyond thrilled! It was our first team member wedding of the 2014 year. The weather was gorgeous, and the scenery there was unbelievable. We arrived to the house and reception site where both Cassi and Chris were getting ready. The tables were already set up out back, full of beautiful and perfectly placed details of blues and soft tones, setting the scene for what would be the perfect backyard reception. Having been a makeup artist, Cassi was busy glamming up every lady in the wedding (including herself!)
Chris played it cool with his guys and tried to remember to make sure his hair was actually styled! I’ve always believed that you can tell a lot about a couple by how the cake cutting and feeding goes. Let’s just say that Cassi and Chris did not disappoint, and I now know why we hit it off so well. My kind of people. So don’t miss those pictures! Cassi had planned for a desert winter wedding and then the weather surprised us all by being in the high 70’s! I can actually say it felt HOT. Like, I may have gotten a sun tan (bonus!). Regardless, everyone rolled with it, ugg boots and all, and the day turned out to be awesome. A beautiful day and couple to help kick start a new year, and I am so excited to have been a part of it.
