We’re excited for our first seminar of the 2014 season! Join us on January 18th, 2014 for the second of our six class seminar series. This Seminar will be focused on the art of editing/retouching and incorporating these best practices into your day to day photography experiences.

Once you master the knowledge of these awesome backend tools it will help you when your shooting see the possibilities for the end result of your photos before you take them so you can better plan for your clients. For example this knowledge helps us know things like what time of the day is going to be the best for this type of shoot, how to manipulate the light while shooting because you know the effect you will be able to create in photoshop or lightroom while editing or even knowing what type of location to match with a specific outfit or couple.

Family Christmas Portraits | Utah Family Photographer | Jessica Janae

This family is just too perfect for words. Mom and dad look like models and the sweet little girl looks like a baby Gap model. Their outfits were stunning. We originally were gonna shoot these outside in a winter wonderland type location but it was a full on blizzard that day, so we went to my studio in downtown Salt Lake City, Ut and made it work. I think it actually matched their vibe better πŸ™‚

Brittany + Skylar wedding- Midway, Utah

Oh this wedding…. The couple is just out of this world sweet. I absolutely feel in love with them from the first time we got together. I knew the wedding would be awesome right when I saw them.

The location was breathtaking. I was blown away. That lake and the mountains in the background.. good heavens. It was located at a cabin in Midway, Utah on a gorgeous sunny day.

Of course the couple looked killer. Brittany was wearing a vera wang gown that just matched everything perfectly, and her hair piece!! ah. I could go on. And anyone who walks their pups down the isle is good in my book πŸ™‚

Anyways, enjoy !


Addee's Fall Bridal shoot- Salt Lake City, Utah

Since the second I met this girl we were kinda bff’s. Like seriously we have the same personalities. Her bridals were pretty fun πŸ™‚

I about DIED when I saw her dress. It’s definitely one of my all time favorite dresses I’ve seen one of my brides wear. It is stunning in person. The back is amazing….omg. And the lace looks so antique and expensive.
