Doug & Shawn

Doug and Shawn were married one week ago today in Bisbee, Arizona.  I first met Shawn at Allan and Rebekah’s wedding.  Since Shawn and Doug planned for a small wedding they weren’t going to have a photographer.  I am so glad Shawn changed her mind because it was a pleasure to spend the day with the couple and their friends.  

The day started at the Copper Queen Hotel, cool sign

Preparations and details


Loved the old claw foot tub in the bathroom



The ceremony took place on the steps of the County Court House.  Shawn’s dear friend delivered her to the ceremony in his vintage Oldsmobile

It’s official :)

The reception was held at Cafe Roka.  It’s a charming restaurant and the food was delicious!  Here is the first dance.

Thank you Doug and Shawn for inviting me to shoot your wedding.  Wishing you many happy years together!
