Danzi & Mark Wedding | Lindon, Utah

This wedding was a beautiful one, full of lots of special moments. Danzi spent the afternoon getting ready, surrounded with her close friends and mom. One of my favorite parts of this day, was that both Danzi and her mom did not see the decorated reception until after the ceremony. After Danzi and Mark were wed, Danzi and her mom were led into the reception area to see how beautiful it was! So special for the two of them to be able to share that. 

After Danzi's dance with her dad, it was Mark and his mom's turn. To the surprise of everyone (including Danzi) Mark and his mom busted it out in all sorts of dance moves to a mashup of hilarious songs. Yep, it even included gangnam style. The laugh on Danzi's face is priceless. 

These two had such a perfect wedding day, filled with TONS of laughs and fun.

Erik & Eva Wedding | Cactus & Tropicals

This wedding day was one of my favorites. It started out with a beautiful family that all came together to celebrate with Erik and Eva. Including the cutest dog! Champagne, the most beautifully styled home, and of course Eva, were all there for the first part of the day.

Then my favorite-teary dad photos. Eva had gifts for both of her parents before the ceremony, and she had me tag along to grab a few shots of the special moments she shared with her parents. You can tell how much they love her! 

They had a gorgeous ceremony at Cactus and Tropicals, surrounded by their closest family and friends. They spent the rest of the evening dancing, eating cake, and then had a sparkler exit! 

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!

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!

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!

Birthday Wedding

As you may have guessed from the title of this blog, I was lucky enough to share my birthday with this bride on her wedding day. (She even surprised me with my favorite bubblegum birthday cake after they cut  theirs! Sweetest). 

The day began in the cutest room at the Grand America. Lisa had lots of beautiful little details to photograph, from the flats her mom wore on her wedding day, to the most gorgeous pair of Louboutins.

They said their vows in her parent's backyard, and then took a spin around the pond in a paddle boat. Everything about their day was perfect for a laid back summer wedding. Including donuts. 

I hope you love their wedding as much as I did!!
