Even before I became engaged, I knew that my (now) husband wanted a big wedding; and while I also wanted to have our dear friends and family share in our special day, it was also important tome that my husband and I have time to celebrate our love and commitment to one another apart from the joyous chaos of our wedding day.  

Enter Ara. 

I loved the intimacy and relaxed atmosphere of her elopements and tiny weddings, and wanted to do something similar to that in addition to our larger wedding that she would also be capturing for us.  It was one of the best decisions thatI made! (And not only because it provided an opportunity to have a second dress). Ara has a wonderful collection of secluded spots with jaw-dropping vistas and was able to find something that was just what we were looking for.  I feel doubly blessed to have had two special days graced by Ara's beautiful talent and support. 

Thank you!

Ara is an epic photographer. We had an outdoor wedding in tricky lighting situations near a waterfall and the photos are just stunning. Plus, she is easy going and fun to work with. If you have the opportunity to work with her, do it! Anyone can point and shoot a camera but Ara's photos are magical.
