El Chorro Paradise Valley

The Ceremony

We were at the ceremony. The officiant asked if we would like to come in close to capture a few photos of them during the ceremony. Usually, this is a big no, no. However, this time was different. Being allowed to stand close to the couple for a few minutes to obtain some unique photos was a treasure. We could tell this day was going to be different. This day was going to be fun.

The Reception

Once the vows were said and the ceremony concluded, we retired to El Chorro Paradise Valley for the remainder of the evening. We were excited to get back to this beautiful Scottsdale wedding venue and excited for what the rest of the day held in store for everyone. El Chorro Scottsdale is one of our favorite wedding venues to photograph. So many things about El Chorro were designed with wedding photography in mind. The venue and staff are excellent, and photographing here is always a pleasure.

The Couple

Abbey looked stunning in her wedding dress, and CJ looked like he could have stepped in for James Bond. Needless to say, they were both living their best lives that day. CJ’s gentle, calmness always seemed to relax everyone he was around. It made it so their guests could comfortably enjoy all the activities of the evening. Abbey has a fun personality that is enjoyable and contagious to be around. It’s easy to see why people gravitate to her. The two of them together were like magic.
