Riley + Mark {Wedding}

I met Mark and Riley at Bruges Waffles and Frites in downtown Salt Lake City, after we corresponded for a little bit via email. I live in Heber and they were living in Logan, so Salt Lake seemed like a good place to meet. Sitting down and chatting with them, I instantly loved them and was so excited they wanted me to photograph their wedding. I asked Riley how she found me and she told me she had found me on Pinterest!! I was tickled to say the least, and happy with whoever pinned the photo she happened to see. I loved Pinterest before, but this made me love it even more. And I have to say something about Riley’s dress…IT IS STUNNING. You’ll see. It’s one of my favorite dresses of all time. And she wore it beautifully. Thanks for letting me be a part of your day guys!!

Baby Lucca

I decided to change things up a little bit and post a birth story that I shot in August. I only shoot births for family and close friends, so when I get that chance, I absolutely love it! This is my cousin Sarah, and I have been blessed enough to have been there for all 3 of her children’s births. She delivered baby Lucca naturally, and it was one of the most amazing things I have ever witnessed. It continues to amaze me and I’m awestruck how women bring life into this world.  Whether natural, medicated or c-section, every birth is nothing short of a miracle in my eyes.

Llexa + Jeremy {Wedding}

I absolutely love Oregon. You may not know this, but I grew up there and went to college there. It is one of my favorite places! I could go on and on about how much I love it. Whenever I have the opportunity to photograph a wedding there, it just makes me so happy. And this wedding is near and dear to my heart. I’ve known Llexa since she was a little girl, and it was an amazing day. She found an amazing husband who is so sweet to her, and it makes me so happy to see how much they love each other. Love you two!

Anna + Jared {Wedding}

These two are some of the most genuinely sweet and wonderful people I have met. I’m no good with words, and don’t do them justice with that sentence. I love these two and their families and consider them friends. I’m so grateful to have been there for their big day. It was truly amazing and fun. The day started out at the Salt Lake City Temple and ended at Wadley Farms in Lindon, Utah. I loved every second.  I have to give a little shout out to Anna’s sister Erin, who did the flowers and the gorgeous artwork around the reception. She is truly talented.
