Paige and Sean fall engagements- Big Cottonwood Canyon| Salt Lake City, Utah

I freaking loved shooting these guys engagements!!! Sean and I went to junior high and high school together, we were good friends in junior high and hung out with all the same people so it was fun to reminisce ¬†about the good old days when we were babies ūüôā

It had rained all morning the day of the shoot, but we didn’t have any other day to move the shoot to so we went for it. Luckily it stopped raining completely ¬†right before which left the mountain looking AMAZING. all the colors were enhanced. I love it when this happens. makes the pics look magical. ..

Kara and Andrew engagements |The Montage| Deer Valley, Utah

 

We shot at The Montage hotel in Deer Valley which is such a different location than any I’ve ever shot engagements at! It totally matched Kara and Andrew’s vibe. Kara was Ms. Utah and is the smartest girl I’ve ever met in my life. They both have insane amazing futures ahead of them, and I definitely think these pictures reflect that. They look almost regal, which is totally what I was going for as we were shooting.

Kara and I were on the drill team and dance company together in high school. I used to be scared of her my first year cuz she was very strict and super good haha, then we became friends and I realized that she’s just a freak of nature like everyone else haha. Andrew also went to our high school, I had a math class with him and thought he was the funniest boy. He also got the best grades which I was always jealous of. Cuz of course i failed math -_-

anyways I freaking love this couple and I’m so glad they’re getting married!!

enjoy ūüôā

Stephanie and Andrew Wedding Day| Big Fork, Montanna| destination wedding photographer

Im finally getting caught up on weddings so you guys are going to see a lot of posts coming up!!

Good heavens this wedding was unreal beautiful. I’ve passed through Montanna a million times on my way to Alberta, Canada (where my mom’s whole family lives) but never really stopped and stayed there. All the areas I pass are just open fields and lots of sky. But not Big Fork. It was SO GORGEOUS!!! A tiny little tourist town nestled in amongst massive forests of pole pines. Totally looked like we were in the movie Twilight haha.

Their wedding was right on a lake. The biggest lake I’ve ever seen. and so beautiful. so so so so beautiful…. The whole family came and gathered around while the groom’s dad married them. Simple and sweet. Then everyone hung out for a BBQ and some old school games, boat rides and a camp fire. It was so laid back and chill.

I loved being a part of this wedding day. I brought my babies and husband and we all had such a good time relaxing and playing and eating! haha Thank you so much Stephanie and Andrew!! It was magical!

Denisa and Marius Romanian Wedding! | Windsor, Ontario| Canada

Oh man, where to begin with this wedding!

I shot this wedding in Windsor, Ontario which is right across the river from Detroit, Michigan. It was a massive Romanian wedding where 90% of everyone there spoke only Romanian so I had absolutely no idea what was happening haha. ¬†But oh man were the people nice. Canadians are the nicest people I’ve ever met. My mom is Canadian and I just love all of them. I LOVE CANADA!

The second I got there Denisa, the bride, drove me around with her everywhere. She has so many things to do haha. We went to pick up her dress, went lingerie shopping, checked on her family making all the desserts, looked at locations for pictures etc, by the time we got to the house it was midnight. Then Denisa woke up at 1am to start getting ready because she wanted pictures at sunrise! So I woke up at 2am and started shooting her getting ready. Craziest thing I’ve ever done. haha

We shot their formals at super pretty park, Marius the groom FREAKED when he saw her for the first time it was so cute…

The traditions at Romanian weddings are so cool. Their ceremony was about 3 1/2 hours long! And I didn’t understand one word of it! haha but it was beautiful. Their youth choir was unreal. every time they sang I got major chills..

The receptions for them are sit down dinners and literally everyone that knows them somehow through the grapevine comes. There must have been 600 plus people there at the dinner. And its tradition for the bride and groom to get a picture with every couple or family that came. So that was new for me haha. Then after the dinner they are done! So our day ended at like 3:30pm! which was nice since we had about an hour of sleep haha.

Anyways I loved this wedding, the couple was so hilarious. I was laughing the whole time. And I swear me and Denisa were best friends in 5 seconds.

They are amazing together and so insanely in love, I know they are meant to be. xoxo

Bell Family Shoot | Salt Lake City, Utah | Whitney

After this cute dads battle with cancer, his wife’s only request was to capture some fun moments with their dad. ¬†When Megan called me and explained that the last family photos they had taken were¬†when her husband was very sick and in chemotherapy, I was so flattered that she picked me to capture this now joyous time. ¬†I can’t even imagine how cherished¬†these photos will be to them.

Their cute little family was so fun to photograph!  The girls were darling and had such personality.  After about 30 minutes of shooting the weather started getting CRAZY, but made for some pretty awesome clouds.  We all had a great time (until the cold came in and the little girls were freezing), but all in all a great photoshoot with incredible people!  Thanks Bell family.
