Zoe + Jordan {Formals}

The winter is so unpredictable when it comes to weather. And being a wedding photographer and shooting weddings all year round in Utah is hard sometimes. It’s freezing, snowy, rainy and windy in the winter and it is as hot as the surface of the sun in the summer with no breeze in sight. On the day we scheduled Zoe and Jordan’s formals it was threatening to rain all day and then it did. Fortunately we had planned on being indoors for part of it. By the time we were done with the first look the rain had stopped and we headed to the temple. Towards the end of the shoot the sun came out and I got some gorgeous shots of them. It was such an unpredictable day that ended quite beautifully.

Winter {Personal Shoot}

For a VERY LONG time I’ve been wanting to do a shoot where I pick everything. The couple, the clothes, the location…everything. And finally I just decided to make it happen. It wasn’t without downs and uncertainties but I did it! And it was so much fun! I wish we could have stayed here all day, but the short amount of time we were there was perfect. It was so nice to not have any expectations and just make beautiful photos. I really loved everything about this day. {It also doesn’t hurt to have two beautiful people in front of my camera either.}

A big thank you to Tara Brooke, of Perfectly Provo, for doing hair and Dani Smith for doing make-up! You guys are awesome!

Eryka {Maternity}

I am so excited for these babies to get here! Eryka has been on bed rest for about 10 weeks now. Seriously…10 WEEKS! Since she is on bed rest I came to her in the comfort of her own home to do her maternity photos. It was so nice to talk to her about them and how excited we all are for them to be here. Hope you love these as much as I do!
