Maddie & Michael | Salt Lake Hardware Building Wedding

These two had such a wonderful day. If you've been following along for a minute, you might remember them from this beautiful Autumn formal session. Maddie's dress was so so pretty, and Michael was just so sweet with her. Their reception was at the Salt Lake Harware Building, and the vibe matched them perfectly! The exposed brick and high ceilings are perfect for photographing!

I'm so glad that they had me along for their day. Can't wait for all of my 2016 brides!

Erik & Eva Bridals | Big Cottonwood Canyon

So yesterday these two graced the blog with their beautiful wedding at Cactus and Tropicals. If you missed it, it's right....here.  We did their bridals after their wedding, which I think is so fun if you want the first time he sees you in your dress be when you walk down the aisle! 

We drove up to one of my favorite spots in Big Cottonwood (before ALL of the snow showed up). Eva had her hair and makeup done by Jill,  and I loved how the makeup brought out Eva's natural beauty! Rachel did her bouquet, and the rich reds and succulents were perfect for the autumn mountain colors. 

We have only TWO spots left for the fall For the Love retreat next August. Make sure to click here or email me at forthelove@emmylowephoto.com if you want more info!

Jade | Red Dress Snow Shoot

My rebrand is here!!! I am so excited to share my new logo with you all! It has been a long time coming but I am so happy that it matches more of who I am and what I want people to remember me by! 

This was the first shoot of 2016, and I loved being able to have my cute assistant Jade be the model! This stunning red number is from The Dress Collective, and it paired so well with the snowy winter background. So excited to see what 2016 holds, this shoot has me feeling like it's off to a great start!

Ashlyn and Scott | Utah Winter Bridals

Even though shooting outside this time of year means being so so cold, I can't get over how beautiful the snow is! Mix that with these two beauties, and a dress made by the bride's mom, you can't get much better than that. 

Tonight is their reception, and their wedding on Wednesday, and I am so happy that I get to be a part of their wedding celebration. 

Okay, but back to this dress. Ashlyn's mom made it, and it pairs so well with her beautiful wedding ring and Ashlyn's classy style. There are lots of pretty details in today's post, keep scrolling to see!

Britany and Kevin | Big Cottonwood Bridals

I was so excited when Britany emailed me and wanted me to photograph her formals. Her and Kevin drove from Las Vegas for to add a little Utah mountain magic to their after wedding session. This was my first shoot this year in the snow, which was fun to bring to this desert couple.

 The early morning  light peaking through the pines mixed with the pines gave us the prettiest backdrop!

Classic Beauty | Jaime and Curtis

Look at this gorgeous woman..I love nothing more than a classic beauty. Jaime had such a sense of elegance to her, from the way she carried herself to her timeless dress and red lip. We ventured up Big Cottonwood canyon, one of my favorite Utah mountain spots, which made a perfect backdrop for these two. They recently said their vows out of state, and while I'm so sad I couldn't be there, I am so happy that these two are now married!!




Autumn Colors | Maddie and Michael Bridals

If you remember from Wednesday's post (here), I simply adore Maddie & Michael's love. When Micheal saw her for the first time in her gorgeous flowy gown, his reaction was priceless. He pulled her into the most tender embrace...I love couples that are themselves and let me document their emotions as they unfold!

After their first look at the temple, we went up Big Cottonwood canyon, just in time to catch the last rays of sun. I love how the colors of the brush bring out Maddie's hair color. Can't wait to see these two today, happy wedding day!

Summer & Rhett | Sand Dune Love

Summer and Rhett, I just love that I was able to spend so much time with these guys documenting their love. If you missed it, we went up to Albion Basin for their engagements, click here to see.

For their bridals, we ventured out to the sand dunes at Little Sahara for some desert love. Summer's gorgeous bouquet brought hues of autumn to the sand, and once again their love was infectious enough to fill their frames with little giggles and loves. 

A big congratulations to these two loves on their wedding day today!
