Zoe + Jordan {Wedding}

These two just make me happy. It was such a pleasure spending time with them and their families before and on the wedding day. There is so much joy and love in their hearts and eyes. And you can see it in the photos. There was lots of dancing, hugs, kisses, laughing and good ole fun for everyone who attended this day. Zoe and her mom put together something that was beautiful and all their hard work paid off. I’m so grateful to have been a small part of this beautiful day! Hugs to you all!

And a HUGE thank you to my sweet friend Jalene of J. Taylor Photography for coming to 2nd shoot with me! Love ya!

Jordan these are beautiful pictures as is your lovely bride. I wish you both the best of life together. I am grateful for your example of sealing your marriage in the temple and reminding all of us of our own sacred covenants. Sing to your wife each day and she will always be happy :)

Wondershop Series Workshop

One of the best things I’ve done for myself and my business has been to attend workshops. I go to them to learn and to be inspired and I’ve never regretted going to one. This one included. The Wondershop Series workshop that I attended invited two editors to speak. Lindsey Orton of Utah Bride Blog and Tessa Woolf of Salt Lake/Park City Bride and Groom Magazine. They talked about how gettting your work published is great for your business and how to stand out from other submissions. It was such a pleasure to be able to hear what they had to say. Submitting my work is definitely a weakness of mine and I was so grateful for the information and encouragement.

Of course, no workshop is complete without a little stylized photo shoot, and the ladies from the Wondershop Series did not dissapoint. They collaborated with some amazing people to make the shoot just stunning!

I loved every second of it! Thanks ladies!

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!
