MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT
Groom's answer: One of my favorites was while dancing I
looked up to see all of my bride’s friends dancing with my sister,
cousins, friends... and my fraternity brother/officiant talking to one
of my childhood friends... and thinking this is exactly what we wanted
for this party.

HONEYMOON

A memorable moment of the honeymoon: Just relaxing, relaxing and
relaxing. And lots of good food.
 
WEDDING ADVICE
Have the wedding YOU want, and don’t let anyone steer you away from
your vision. A lot of people will try to tell you to do things the
“traditional” way. If they persist ask them what the tradition
represents and why we do it... if they come up with a good answer then
maybe consider it, but it’s YOUR wedding do it YOUR way.
Work together as a couple... and get a wedding planner! Most will try
to highball you with a big price, have a budget and stick to it and
the right planner will help you stay on budget. We could not have
done it without our planner.

Salt Lake Engagement Photographers - Jessica + Jeremy

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

I shot Jessica and Jeremy's engagement pictures a few weeks ago in Salt Lake City, Utah.  They decided to rent a vintage car from Something Vintage Something Blue for the shoot.  Then Jessica looked stunning in her bright red dress.  A bright blue car with a bright red dress along with a variety of different textures and backgrounds made for some great eye candy.  What do you think?

Salt Lake Bridal Photography - Raleigh

I shot Nikki's bridal pictures last year at Red Butte Gardens.  Her wedding dress was stunning with a lace overlay and a sash.





















Salt Lake City Utah Engagement Photography - Nikki + Mike

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

I shot these pictures last summer. I know it's awful that I didn't post them right away. I took these engagement photos at Liberty Park. Nikki told me she wanted to do a photo shoot with a tandem bike. Mike and Nikki are pros on this bike doing circles around me while I shot the pictures. I think Nikki's cornflower blue summer dress is awesome. We should have brought some bread to feed the ducks.











Provo Bridal Photography - Katie + Cameron

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Check out Katie's beautiful wedding dress. Doesn't she look stunning? I just love the lace pattern and the fact that it's ivory instead of white. The cut is more of a mermaid style with a long train that flares out the back. Her dress is really romantic and sweet. Katie and Cameron are going for a more classic style wedding with soft pink, cream, and black. Cameron looks dapper in a classic black tuxedo with a black tie and vest. I shot these bridal pictures on Saturday at the Provo Castle Theater right at the peak of spring. My favorite photo is the very last one of Katie putting her hand on Cameron's cheek next to the white tree blossoms. What photo is your favorite?
