Tayler + Josh {wedding}

Josh and Tayler were married at the Logan Temple. We had already done a preshoot at the temple so we just had to get a few shots of the couple and family pictures at the temple. It made for a stress free morning for sure. I stopped first at the Riter Mansion to get a few shots of all the details that Michelle from Utah Events by Design was putting together for their afternoon reception. Tayler wanted touches of plaid and mailboxes and letters (she had waited for Josh on his mission and there were many letters in between!). They also chose to get married on such a great day-my birthday! I really had a great time with them and their family and they made me feel like part of their family. I loved that Tayler and Josh chose to have a brunch reception and were able to leave a four o’clock to enjoy the rest of their day together. The food was excellent, the decor made me happy and the family was hilarious! Her siblings lip synced to Queen’s Somebody to Love and had the whole room laughing-including me. It was great! They all were dancing and Tayler’s cute grandpa’s were dancing with all their granddaughters. There was a lot of love in the room and you could actually see it in everything in this wedding.

Lauren + Jake {wedding}

Lauren and Jake were the winners of my Deserving Bride Contest I did in January. I am so glad they won! They are such an amazing couple and I love hanging out with them and their family. Jake and Lauren had their reception at This is the Place Park. I loved the pink house that matched Lauren’s colors perfectly that was close by. We did the family shots there and I’m glad they walked down the hill for them for me!! They had a great turnout at their reception and their family knows how to throw a party. Her uncle is has tons of sound equipment, lights, and even brought a fog machine! It was awesome. There was one song that they and their friends were dancing to and I thought it was saying something else. I mentioned it to Lauren and Jake and they started laughing at me and said it was something different…way different! Well I feel old now-thanks kids ;D hehe I’m just glad I could make you laugh!

Kayla + Austin {engagements}

This was the second day in a row I shot with rain chasing me! Everytime we would stop to take pictures, the rain would start a few minutes later. We had quite the entourage with us-Kayla’s mom, dad, grandma, Austin’s mom and my assistant/former bride/friend of Kayla’s Brittnie 😀 We had a great time literally running from place to place. We brought along my pink couch and they brought some cute bikes. The one that Austin was riding was really hard to ride and try to hold Kayla’s hand, but it was really funny to watch! We ended on a dock (not going to say how we got on there…wait there is a picture I think ;D hehe and they danced in the rain. Good times for sure! Thanks everyone for the adventure!!

Heather + Steve {engagements}

I was so excited to do Heather and Steve’s engagements. Heather is a huge Harry Potter fan, so I knew we would get along just fine 😀 I brought them a chocolate frog and some Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans to get some cool ring shots with and also to have fun eating 😀 They go to school in Logan, so we did the pictures up there. They even brought along his grandma’s couch to get pictures on. Steve lives with his grandma while he goes to school and a lot of important talks/moments on that couch. They also both love Kenny Chesney, so while we were doing pictures we put on some of his music on my phone and it was fun to jam out to some country ;D

Maddi + Jesse {wedding}

Maddi and Jesse had a gorgeous DIY Barn wedding in Springville. A lot of my clients end of being friends/family to me and this is one of those. Maddi’s mom made almost all of the decor. She said she has burlap busting out of her house now, so if anyone needs some, let her know! She did such an amazing job!! I loved all the antiques in the barn and really loved all of the emotion throughout the day. Maddi was one of the happiest brides I’ve ever seen. I bet her cheeks hurt from smiling so much-I loved it! Seriously all of the details in this wedding were just amazing. Maddi’s mom put a lot of love into this for sure!!

Maddi {bridals}

Maddi wanted pictures with a country feel to them, so we did some at an old time saloon, natural sagebrush, mountains, and even found a tractor. We took a few at Kelley Creek Farms as well. We had her mom, sister, aunt and cousin there. It was really fun getting to know everyone better. Her make up and hair were done by Kristen Packard and she looked gorgeous!! My favorite ones were in the sagebrush-that wasn’t planned-there was a strip of it on the side of the road and the light was gorgeous, so we stopped. I love side of the road locations!!
