Alex and Jarret are the refined version of "opposites attract". Let's start with Jarrett. He is all man, with stoic masculinity, few words to speak, and let's not forget his perfectly manicured beard. Then we have Alex. She is a huge ball of energy, livening up whatever room she walks into, and a gleaming smile that never ceases.
With any good "opposite couple" they typically end up balancing each other into perfect harmony. Bringing only the best characteristics into this new unified life that they share. Alex is one of the few people in life to "force" a genuine smile out of Jarrett (given the stoic energy he maintains.) Whereas, Jarrett is the man who keeps Alex grounded with reality, despite her ability to soar high on her energy.
Finding your perfect match in life often means finding the person who accents the flavor of who you are, in contrast to having someone with the same attributes. Alex and Jarrett have the perfect pairing in life, and we were HERE FOR IT!

Tell us about THE dress!
"She’s a mermaid with a sweetheart neckline that I never wanted to take off!"-Alex
Alex wore a stunning gown from Margaret Ellen Bridal with the designer being Essense of Australia. It literally fit her like a glove. The lace off the shoulder sleeves were 100% a vibe. Alex definitely wore that dress!

Favorite Part of the Phocus Experience?
"I’ve never seen a team go so above and beyond for a bride before. Daniel gave us HIS hand warmers, Dustin walked us through the entire video process, Sam grabbed our backup shoes for us in the middle of pictures, and Tim ordered us pizza halfway through the reception. We couldn’t have made it without them."-Alex Having an engagement session allows your lead shooter to know the "small details" that make you unique. For Alex and Jarrett, their go-to cheat meal is always a pepperoni and jalapeno pizza. Knowing that about them, allowed us to go grab the perfect "Midnight Snack" for these two cuties. Guess you could say we put the "Jalapeno on top" of their experience. You deserve to enjoy every moment of your wedding day, ESPECIALLY with your favorite food!
Here are a few of our favorites from the day!
