Scottsdale Wedding Cinema: Life’s Story Studios presents a VAVL2 film: Paula+Mark, a wedding trailer.
Paula and Mark originally met in Trig class in high school. Their lives went two separate ways for many years, and yet they now get to be together and their love is incredible. We have been so honored to be a part of telling their story through photo and cinema. Their Scottsdale wedding at Gainey Ranch Golf Club was beautiful.
This beautiful couple met through a mutual friend in Louisiana where Rami was in his residency and Rossa in doctoral study. They hit it off and visited a Syrian festival in Houston together. Their love was providentially brought together and they continued their engagement even while many states away as Rami moved here to Phoenix and Rossa did her residency in Nebraska. Their wedding day came, and what a day it was! From Rami getting ready at his house in Glendale, Rossa getting ready at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale, their ceremony being held at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church, more pictures and video done back at the Hyatt, and their reception at Gainey Ranch Golf Club, it was a very full day for this great couple. It was also the first day of the Monsoon season in Arizona, and the first big dust wall, also known as a Haboob, came through just before their reception at Gainey Ranch Golf Club. Rossa braved a good bit of wind in order for us to get some great photos and video of the two of them near sunset out on the golf course at Gainey. Oh, my, do their family and friends know how to party! From more traditional dances from Syria, dabke, where all the family and friends danced as a group, to American party anthems: they danced all night long! They even finished the evening with a very talented friend who brought his keyboard/synth and played Syrian-style songs to which many guests danced and sang. They are definitely worth celebrating!

We became Melissa & Steven’s wedding photographers through Gainey Ranch Golf Club’s Gainey Vendor Experience. We got to meet the two of them at Starbucks on Tatum & Shea, and we couldn’t stop ourselves from laughing and enjoying a great connection with them. They are sincere people who obviously love each other and are a blast to be around. The best word to describe them? #totesadorbs
Venue: Scottsdale Civic Center Mall
It was lovingly referred to as the “Fireman Prom,” an annual celebration of those men who whole-heartedly serve our community through the fire department. This one was special for our friend Julie of Juju’s Tutus as her husband Brian celebrated 10 years of working for the Scottsdale Fire Department. Here’s what Julie said:
“I can’t get over the gorgeous photos we received over the last few days from my photographer friends who captured special moments for us as we celebrated Scottsdale Fire Department’s 10th Anniversary at the gala last week. The mister has been a firefighter for 23 years and has proudly been with SFD for 10 years(7/1/05-7/1/15). I’m very proud to be his wife.”
