Welcome to the blog, sort of like a digital garden where dreams are planted and grow wild! My name is Quianna and my family calls me “Qui” like key! I’m a destination wedding photographer based in Scottsdale and the Bay Area.
I love adventures and creating memories even more than I love photographing them—and I LOVE taking photos! In addition to capturing weddings, family milestones, and the best memories I also offer business tools, motivation and inspiration to help creatives turn their passions into their profession. We only get this one life, why not live our days doing what we love?
As a photographer I gravitated towards this profession because I am simply in love with love. Love stories are my favorite and it brings me the most joy to be able to capture these sweet memories for families to last a life time!
When I was approached by a friend to capture this unique idea I was more than excited!
Two sisters brides… Such a cute idea to get them back into their dresses for a photo shoot! But with their MOM, too?!? I was hooked! What a fun and different idea! I have never seen images like this before and I was honored they selected me to capture this great story!
As soon as the planning and scheming began I thought it would be crucial to recreate their wedding bouquets! So together with Three Sister Flowers we made it come to life!
I must say… Myself and the girls were very impressed!
Not only did we recreate the flowers… but the girls brought all of their details as well!
Yes, even their Mama had her invitation!
We clearly were having way too much FUN!
Some sweet words from the daughters:
“Since we were little, we always loved looking at my parents’ wedding album and seeing pictures from their special day. We even asked to see our mom’s wedding dress, preserved nicely since 1986.
When it came time for our weddings, only seven months apart, we shared a very special bond. We loved calling each other “Sister Brides” since we were planning our weddings virtually together! Shortly after the weddings, we decided that doing a photoshoot would be the perfect way to always treasure our memories of being blushing brides! Since my my mom still had her wedding dress, we knew we wanted to include her as well. It was a wonderful way to intertwine three very amazing days!
Since our dad is such an incredible husband to my mom and father to us, we wanted to present him with a gift of these photos. All three of us have such special memories of him during our individual wedding days and wanted to capture all of these memories in a single photoshoot, “Three Brides.”
The day of the shoot was exciting. We had our hair and make up done (Thank you Kathryn Horen) Driving in a car with three women in wedding dresses was a very memorable part! When we arrived at Casa Grande, we loved sharing our wedding day details with Quianna. She even had a florist replicate our original bridal bouquets! We absolutely loved the way she captured the photos, keeping us smiling and laughing!
It was the perfect way to honor our amazing parents, who have provided us with so much love in our lives, including our perfect wedding days.”
Now… Since I had the honor of shooting Haley’s wedding I am happy to share a glimpse from her special day to share just how awesome their daddy really is!
This by far is one of my favorite wedding photos of ALL time! That look his face is priceless as she’s still wrapped around his arm.
Thank you ladies for such a memorable day!
Cheers to forever wives, but always being daddy’s little girls!
With Love, Quianna
