When we first met Jackie & Brandon at a coffee shop in Gilbert, we felt an instant connection with these two fellow creatives. Their passion for life and love was evident, and as we got to know them, their love story inspired us deeply.

This couple is simply one of the most creative couples we have ever collaborated with. It seemed as though they had thought through every little detail to ensure things went smoothly on their wedding day. Most of us had expected it to rain on their wedding, and it did. However, right before the wedding, the clouds cleared and the sun came through, and it felt like a divine intervention :).

Our favorite part of their wedding was Jackie and Brandon’s vows (you’ll understand once you watch their trailer). They were so real and heartfelt, I was literally fighting back tears while trying to capture the moment. Honestly, I still get choked up a bit each time I watch their trailer.

Val Vista Lakes created the perfect backdrop to their wedding, and working with Sloan Photographers was a joy and a privilage. Jackie and Brandon’s love and creativity inspired and deeply affected both of us. We feel honored to have had the opportunity to capture their wedding day, and we hope you enjoy their trailer :).
