Kara & Ross | Agua Linda Farm Wedding | Tucson Wedding Photographers

agua linda wedding

Agua Linda Farm is a gorgeous wedding venue that looks like it’s straight out of the midwest, but in fact, it’s only 45 minutes south of the dry, desert landscape of Tucson, Arizona. And Spring is the best time of year to visit the farm because everything is in full bloom! Ross and Kara’s wedding was sweet, simple, and intimate. Their soft color palette of corals, pinks, and greenery flowed seamlessly as if they were all picked right from the gardens at the venue.

I photographed their engagement sweetheart session in Tucson earlier this year to get to know each other and so they could see how I approach posing to really get those natural, candid interactions between them, and it totally paid off! We had an incredible amount of portrait time for the two of them, starting with their first look and ending with about an hour of husband and wife portraits after the ceremony! Because we were able to do their family pictures before the ceremony, I told them to go ahead and enjoy the first part of their cocktail hour, to enjoy that time with their guests, some of whom even traveled “across the pond.” One of their biggest priorities was beautiful pictures of the two of them and I think we nailed it 😉 Having so much time allotted for photos allowed us to be able to explore the grounds of the farm, from the green gardens to the golden fields, and even some pictures with the horses!

As you will see, Ross is from Scottland and I loved how much he incorporated his culture into their wedding. He wore the kilt, sporran (which conveniently held a flask!), kilt pin, flashes, and the Sgian Dubh (a.k.a. the hidden knife). And during the reception, he got on the mic and began to coach all of the guests in participating in the Scottish group dances. At first, some people were hesitant and didn’t know quite what to do, but after just a few minutes of practice, the whole lawn was filled with their friends and family dancing with each other! Another sweet moment was during the toasts, when Kara’s father gifted Ross a pocket watch engraved with his name that was passed down from generations on his own wedding day and on his father’s wedding day as well.

We couldn’t have had such a successful day without our vendor team. Of course, it is always a pleasure to work at one of my favorite venues in Arizona, Agua Linda Farm, who take excellent care of their clients from beginning to end. This was my first time working with Ella Viola Fine Fresh Flowers and she totally knocked it out of the park, creating a hand-tied bouquet with ribbon for that loose and casual feel to her florals. Rachel with The Powder Room is always a pleasure to work with, as she really caters to her clients wants and needs to really fit their personal style. I was pleasantly surprised with Blue House Catering, who not only cooked a delicious meal, but they had kind, serving hearts and even went out of their way to say bye to me at the end of the night! And last, but not least, is William with  Tucson Highlanders, who played the bagpipes. Thanks again Kara and Ross for sharing your special day with me and I wish you guys the absolute best!
