How to enjoy your wedding day |UTAH PHOTOGRAPHER|



Weddings often have an unlimited amount of moving pieces. From the venue, to flowers, cake, dress, tux, photographer and so much more. Now with Pinterest out there it can make things even more overwhelming. You have access to so many ideas to make your wedding day special and if you're not careful, it quickly becomes overwhelming.

Ashley and family |UTAH PHOTOGRAPHER|


It's happening! Utah is finally seeing a little more snow and its gorgeous. We got a 
snow day a few weeks ago but it didn't really stick so we'll see how this week goes? Now
that Thanksgiving is over it's time to plan for Christmas and hope we have a white Christmas. 

Ashley and Brady |UTAH PHOTOGRAPHER|


I always am incredibly flattered when another photographer asks me to do their photos. 
Not only does it validate my own work but it definitely gives a boost 
of confidence to know they trust you to take images they will always treasure. 

Ashley wanted something warm with gorgeous greens and so for her session we decided to do them at Big Cottonwood which is always a big hit! 
Thank you Ashley for trusting me with your photos and I hope you love how they turned out!

Jessie and Josep |Provo City Center Temple, Utah|



Jessie contacted me needing someone to do her photos last minute and I am so incredibly humbled she chose me to capture her special day. They met in Colorado through a mutual friend and remained friends for several months after Jessie taught in Arizona. Jessie thought they would be just friends when Joseph surprised her and asked her out! He asked her out to a movie and the've been together ever since!

Hannah & Henry Salt Lake City Temple Wedding |UTAH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER|


This couple was the absolute sweetest couple last year. The family was so incredibly great to work with and I was also hired to do her sister Caroline's wedding just a month later. I always love when I get couples that have fun in front of the camera and are up for anything. 

Im not the best at blogging but eventually I will get their reception at the Capitol posted :)

Until then I leave you with their adorable temple exit!

Josh and Suzanne |UTAH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER|

I was so excited to photograph Josh and Suzanne's wedding at Louland Falls. After meeting them and discussing their wedding details I know they would be a perfect fit! I had done a wedding last year at Louland Falls close to Park City but it was raining cats and dogs so I didn't get to explore as much!

This time it was a sunny day in May and we did some fun formals after their ceremony! 

Sarah & Parker Salt Lake City, Temple Wedding |UTAH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER|


When it comes to your wedding day, there are so many little details that matter. One little thing can add so much stress to an already important day. Sarah’s sister Mackenzie left me a voicemail in a panic looking for a photographer for her sister wedding.

Unfortunately, their photography had an injury, which would require surgery and was no longer able to photograph the wedding.

Breanna and Mark - Sleepy Ridge |UTAH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER|

Breanna and Mark are an adorable couple that were referred to me from a family I worked with last year. This is the second marriage for both of them and you couldn't even tell by the way they showed their love and how well all their kiddos got along. Just like their engagement session Mark spent most of the day making Breanna laugh and subtly giving her kisses on the sly.

Breanna looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress from Bridal Brilliance. As a mom of a 2 year old and another one due any day now, she definitely gave me mom envy and I pray I look half as good after having 2 kids!

They had their wedding at Sleepy Ridge in Orem and the best part was when the music came on and everyone got on the dance floor and just cut loose! While brides get all the attention when it comes to their ring, Breanna definitely nailed it by having her fingerprint on the inside of the Mark's ring. Congratulations you two and I wish you only the best!

Peaches and Lemons, Provo Orchard |UTAH PHOTOGRAPHER|

As a creative, your mind is constantly racing, thinking and finding new ways to bring to life something amazing. As a photographer, I have been able to block out things in my life and literally breath again through my work.

Breath. This is what this session helped me do. It literally helped bring life and joy back into my life. Not only did I get to work with 2 amazing couples but I got to work with other photographers and creative that love creating work just as much as I do. In this field its easy to get caught up in getting ahead but being part of a community is so much more rewarding.

Building up others should be promoted and encouraged. Yes we are in a competition to survive and grow our business but it’s not something we have to do alone.  We can ask for help we can share tips and we can help someone grow without fear that it will prevent us from getting “more work.” When I decided to take on photography it was a bit tough to get help but they’re out there. There are people that want to help you grow and be successful. So here I love you with the gorgeous Peach and Lemon shoot.

Kara, Friday night & rooftops |UTAH PHOTOGRAPHER|

Kara is a gorgeous model that was brave enough to bear the crazy cold and windy Friday night to get some amazing photos on rooftop during her Friday night. We both braved some crazy Salt Lake City traffic and barely got 45 minutes out of our session because it was that cold! Anytime there is wind it gets that much colder!

When I scheduled the session, I had wanted to do a session in downtown Salt Lake for the longest time I was giddy with excitement when Kara became available. Our session was done right as we started to get more gorgeous sunsets and the days started to get longer, which only got me more excited for the warmer months and more sunset sessions.
