Wedding Day

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 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!!!




(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.
