Janell and Luke's Intimate Superstition Mountains Wedding

I’m pretty excited whenever I get to photograph a wedding that includes a dog. Extra excited, and flattered, when asked to shoot a wedding for someone featuring their dog…especially when this person happens to be into photography and already takes amazing pictures of their dog. Janell and Luke are two intrepid souls who moved to Tucson from Wisconsin pretty much for the adventure of it. They spend a lot of time wandering this country of ours taking in the beautiful scenery with their pup, Nessie. Janell takes amazing pictures of Nessie in these breathtaking spots. How appropriate then for Nessie to be featured in their wedding at one of Arizona’s most breathtaking backdrops, the Superstition Mountains. 

Their wedding was intimate, relaxed, and incorporated the cutest little twist on a ring bearer and what that meant. See below for some of the best photos from their wedding at Lost Dutchman State Park.
