Justin + Brecken | Paradise Valley, AZ Wedding Photographer

Every one has met someone who just leaves an impression on them.  There is no surprise to me, that with these two, Brecken and Justin, their meeting in high school left an impression that's lasted not for years but almost decades.  They are amazing...

I met Brecken sometime around 2000, maybe?  I knew her through mutual friends, but we just crossed paths. At my first job out of high school a few years later, she came back to the store as a seasonal position since she'd worked there previous to college.  When I saw her.. It just took me a few and I connected the dots. Brecken was kind spirited, radiated kindness and had a laugh that actually brought joy in to conversations.  So sweet. 

I've just met Justin in the last year and I don't know him well, however when I met him I walked away thinking, "wow, he is so kind. very intentional." Justin paused in the middle of a big event, where I was working and he was attending as a guest and he really had no reason to pause with me but he did.  It spoke volumes of his character and the sweetness of his spirit.   

This said, these two have a story... texture... they have history and they're passionate as individuals.  Their care for one another is evident. Who doesn't love when a high school crush leaves a lingering feeling that actually comes to fruition down the road?!  I cannot wait for the updates for years to come of what's happening and how their lives are forming together in all the ways that marriage bonds us.... 

Cheers you sweet two.  I'm so thankful that I was able to pause some of these moments for you to savor. xx, karen
