Alexis + Jeff

Alexis is my cousin by marriage and this past year has become so much more to me than just that. Jeff and Alexis have been together for about 2 years and when they decided to get married I could not have been more excited. Not only was Jeff joining the family but we also got to be a part of their day (my sweet husband officiated the wedding, more to come on that). 

I was so happy when Alexis asked me to photograph her wedding, engagements and bridals. I will post their amazing engagements soon but for now I was so excited to show you their beautiful bridals that we shot at the Little Sahara Sand Dunes. We drove a few hours and once we got their they did their first look which could not have been more perfect. Jeff always has the sweetest reactions with Alexis and just is so happy and excited to see her. I mean Alexis was beyond beautiful but together they were beyond perfect. 

I hope you love these bridals and have an amazing week! We still have a few spots open for our December retreat, email me at emmylowephoto@gmail.com for more details!

Sarah + Joe | Utah Engagement Photos

Oh hi guys! 

This past weekend was amazing, the spring retreat was everything I could have hoped for! You can see a few previews of images the attendees shot at the Instagram here. Follow along there to see updates, announcements and images from the retreats and workshops!

This engagement session reminded me that summer is so close! I loved exploring around with these two. Keep scrolling for some rocky desert goodness.


Tuft& Needle | Comfiest Mattress

Oh hey, it's me!!! And baby Jack, my favorite guy (next to husband, of course). 

My husband has been having major back pain this year, and we reallyyy needed a new mattress. This Tuft & Needle mattress has changed our lives! And it comes in a tube and ships for free. You have to wait a few hours for it to fluff up once you take it out of the box, and then you have the comfiest mattress ever! Paired with my Cariloha sheets, we're getting the best sleep ever! 

If I've learned anything this year, it's that I need to take the time to take care of myself. Make sure to check them out and take care of yourself too!

10 Year Anniversary | Winter Shoot

10 years. Ten years of life, babies, and memories and here they were . Still full of love for each other, you could tell by the way their eyes met the other. 

We braved the freezing cold to get these beautiful  winter shots, and by the end this became one of my favorite sessions. To be able to document the love of these two after ten years was pretty incredible.



Natalie and Tyler | Utah Mountain Wedding

Where do I start with this sweet couple? 

Natalie's best friend Eric, who is the perfect mix of sassy and kind-hearted (Hey, just like me!..okay anyway), did her hair and makeup. This first part of the day is so much fun, especially when a bride has her favorite people by her side! 

Right before the ceremony, Tyler came by Natalie's room. They held hands around the doorway and said a prayer. It was one of the most tender moments I've been able to be a part of as a wedding photographer.

The rest of the day was just as perfect, they were married surrounded my trees in the Utah mountains, with their closest friends and family. The details were perfect, and one of my best friends and super talented florist Rachel Osguthorpe did the floral design. 

Days like this are why I do what I do. Hope you love!

Nina Portrait | Salt Lake City

Nina came to me as a fellow photographer in need of updated portraits for her website. I loved this shoot because it was more than just simple portraits, I feel like we were able to capture a little bit of Nina's essence. This quote reminded me of her, "Some women fear the fire, some simply become it." Nina's session was all about showing what an empowered woman she is, along with her soft side. And of course, the amazing Jill did her makeup. 

On that note, for those who were interested in my spring retreat (which sold out, thank you thank you!) I've launched another date! This one will be August 19th-21st in Utah. Email me at forthelove@emmylowephoto for more information!

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!!
