Today on the blog we are showcasing photographer Shaleena Danielle Photography.

My tip would be to have a connection with your photographer, you should feel like you could be friends with them, and even become friends with them. The more connected you are the better your day and your photos will be, and the more genuine your emotions in your photos will be.

Shaleena is a fine art photographer living in Arizona. She likes hiking and being lazy with her dog Ronan. Above all Shaleena enjoys connecting with people and curating precious moments for generations to enjoy through photography.

Shaleena back in  March photographed Vince and Ciara’s beautiful wedding day. Today on the blog she is giving us her play on play of the day.


THE WEDDING DAY!

The day of the wedding started at this ADORABLE little Air Bnb in Tempe, AZ. I walked in and Ciara immediately asked me if I thought this bnb was a photographer’s dream. Yes, yes, it was. Just look at some of their photos from the main part of the bnb

Ciara’s bridal party was amazing! The bride’s man, Ryan, had me and my assistant, Liv, laughing the whole time. He was dancing, and happy, they all were, full of jokes, and smiles. AND THEY WERE ALL SO NICE!

It’s rare to have a wedding where, EVERYONE is amazing, but this was definitely the case with this wedding. They WERE AMAZING!!!

Pre-Wedding

(the letter, and the first look)

Before Ciara and Vince’s first look they read letters that they had written each other. Ciara didn’t think Vince would want to be photographed, so I asked if she would be okay with having her reading photographed. She said yes. I am so, SO glad that she did. It was beautiful, and the perfect thing to have leading into the first look.

The Ceremony

Their ceremony was beautiful, short, to the point. Before the ceremony started, Ciara was ready to run off and just elope with Vince. She said that before going down the isle, she asked her dad to tell her about baseball.

Obviously, baseball helped calm Ciara’s nerves as she walked down the Isle to meet the love of her life.

ARIZONA BRIDAL SHOW SURVIVAL GUIDE

PMA Photography

The Arizona Bridal Show returns to the Phoenix Convention Center, South Building on Sunday, June 2. We will be there with 350+ vendors for you to connect with and lots to see and samples. We caught up with Wedding Planner Kim Horn to help you make the most of your visit to the show. Here's what Kim recommends:

1). Pre-register and purchase tickets in advance vs. waiting in lines the day of the show. 

2). Download the BrideScan app, and build your profile. BrideScan allows you to scan potential wedding pros and brides you meet during a bridal show via QR code. No more sorting through business cards or writing your name, wedding date, and email address on their forms! BrideScan allows you to view the vendors by category (caterers, cakes, etc.). 

3). Create a wedding email. 

4). Know the show schedule (fashion shows, opening, and ending times) to plan your day. Shows normally are less busy the first hours of opening. 

5). Bring the people involved in making major decisions for your wedding. 

6). Take photos and video of everything you love. 

7). Bring a reusable bag to carry hand-outs and samples. 

8). Wear comfortable shoes since you will be walking and standing on your feet for hours. 

9). Bring your calendar so you may book appointments. 

10). Bring cash and your check book to take advantage of show discounts on site. 

11). Bring your color swatches if you still need a designer, florist, and bakery. 

12). Make a list of priorities of products and services you need the most. 

13). Some vendors may be able to book one or two weddings a day which will make them book more quickly. Photographers, DJs, wedding planners, florists, and videographers may be examples of this vendor type. Other vendors may be able to book multiple weddings on the same day. Keep this in mind when organizing your priorities. 

14). Stay until the end of the show, you may be able to have props which are leftover from the exhibitors.

For more tips and tricks to hit up the Arizona Bridal Show like a pro, be sure to subscribe to our email list and connect with us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram. We can't wait to see you at the show!
