After meeting at work, Lora and Steve’s friendship quickly blossomed into a romance. During their relationship, the couple found a passion for hiking and capturing the perfect sunset snap. On one of their evening hikes, Steve sneakily shot a picture of the ring between the normal sunset images. He asked Lora to scroll through the images to see what she thought. Without knowing, she flipped right past the ring picture, but when she looked up Steve was down on one knee with the sun setting in the background!
With a short engagement, the couple felt a little stressed to plan the perfect wedding. “With help from my amazing mother, we were able to get all the details lined up,” Lora said. A highlight of the day was a special DVD Steve created for Lora to watch prior to the ceremony. It was filled with “2 second clips of wonderful moments shared between us over the last year, and I realized that he cherished all those moments as much as I did,” Lora remembered. Katrina & Andrew Photography were on hand to capture all the special moments of the couple’s Scottsdale winter wedding.
The couple and guests danced the night away. Steve and Lora agreed dancing to “Tennessee Whiskey” as their first dance as husband and wife was just perfect!
