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 the summer.

We went up outside of Payson, Utah into the mountains. We found a cool lake, got a couple mosquito bites, and they even made their own little bivy out of a sheet and some sticks they found laying on the ground. We had such a great time!

    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
