Not only are these people beautiful, but they were also so fun! They recently moved from the South and wanted something iconic to Utah. Unfortunately the mountains didn’t have any snow yet, so I suggested the famous Great Salt Lake. They loved the idea and I am so glad they did! That place is nothing short of incredible! We had a great time shooting and we could not believe the warm December weather that made things so easy for Erin in her dress. It was just another fantastic day with fantastic clients!
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.
Hello everyone! It’s Amanda again. Well. I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I’ve been a little MIA from the blog recently. I promise I have a good excuse.
This is how my day shooting in the mountains began. Yes. Extremely Cold.
On the left, you see the boot I wear every time I shoot from the month of October till about May. The perfect, reliable, durable shooting boot. But on the right-you see a different kind of boot. The clunky, ugly medical kind that has no kind of reliability whatsoever. The kind you wear when you break your foot. Which I did, 3 weeks ago-making it pretty hard to scale mountains and chase families with my camera. Alas-I’m back in the game and these photos were worth scaling hillsides (and possibly getting frostbite) for.
Now, on to the good stuff. When I first met Megan and Greg for their engagements in park city, there were the most down to earth, fun and easy to shoot people I’d probably ever met. Because of that, their engagements ended up being brilliant and extremely popular in their circle of friends and family. They tell me I’m amazing-I tell them it’s just because of how awesome they are. These two love birds have been married for 2 months now and can I just say that shooting their bridals after they were already married was my FAVORITE part of this shoot. Why? It’s simple. Her dress. We could spend our time doing whatever we wanted and not have to be so overly worried about her dress every step we took. I highly recommend this route to my future brides. I don’t think I could have asked for a more perfect photo shoot from these two. The weather was perfect, Sundance is absolutely breath taking and they are just two beautiful people. The perfect recipe for amazing photos.
And by the way- here’s what the end of my shooting day in the mountains looked like. still haven’t figured out how to get all these out.
So I had a first with this shoot. I drove from Bountiful to the mouth of the Parleys canyon and realized I forgot my camera bag. Photographer’s worst night mare ! haha I was FREAKING out. So embarrassed. and really there was nothing to do but to turn around and get it then meet my couple almost 40 min late cuz of course its rush hour. Luckily this couple was way chill so they didn’t mind at all. phew.
We went around some pretty fields in park city, and then to main street. The light was so beautiful and the sky looked so pretty. Walking around with them just doing whatevs and being weird was perfect for their pics.
Although these babies only last about 15 minutes in the hot sun, I still had such a great time photographing the Skeens! Getting two almost 1-year-olds to both look at the camera at the same time is no easy task. With a little bit of baby talk and some key shaking, I was able to catch their glimpses only a few times. Seriously though, how cute are these boy girl twins and how gorgeous are their parents? I’m so happy I was able to photograph this cute family and capture this special time in their babies lives!
