Stephen + Heidi {Engagements}

This shoot was SO MUCH FUN!!! Oktoberfest was going on at Snowbird when we went up there to take pictures. At one point I had Stephen + Heidi take pictures on some stairs while others were walking around them…it might have been a little embarrassing, but the pictures are ADORABLE! I absolutely love these two, and can’t…

Stephen + Heidi {Engagements}

My cousin is getting married!!! And to a pretty cool girl. Stephen + Heidi are PERFECT for each other…they both are totally in love with hiking and camping, so we decided to embrace that during their shoot…we also had to do it before BYU started so we could include Stephen’s awesome beard he grew over…

    Delightful…. The title is “I feel the earth move under my feet,
    I feel the sky come tumbling down, come tumbling down….”

    Other wise, “So in love are we two that we don’t know what to do…”ReplyCancel

    Hi Valerie,

    These photos are amazing!!I was wondering how I could get some copies of prints from you. I am Heidi’s cousin Katie and I’m working on a scrap book (at Heidi’s request) for people to sign for their wedding. Let me know if I need to talk to Heidi lady, or if I can just go through you. I think you could probably get me some amazing 4*6 and 5*7 prints. Thanks, you can shoot me an email if you would like.ReplyCancel

Jean Paul + Grace {Wedding}

It was such a pleasure to be with Jean Paul + Grace on their wedding day! I didn’t realize that I knew Jean Paul until after Grace + I got to talking about the wedding when we first met up. Jean Paul + I served an LDS  mission together, so along with shooting their wedding…
