Big Sur Engagements
There are two things in this world that speak straight to my soul. First is photography (obviously) and second is music. In my opinion, they go hand in hand. Each shoot I do has it's own song, beat, and rhythm. Music and photographs both capture every type of emotion. When you see a picture of someone who has dealt with depression for the past ten years, you can see it in their eyes. When you hear a sad song, you feel the heartbreak of not just the person who wrote the song, but your OWN heartbreak. Looking at these pictures, I don't just see a beautiful couple, breathtaking cliffs, and the endless sea in the background... I feel the rhythm o ...

Cruisin’
After admiring their faces for at least a year, I FINALLY got to shoot with Nicolette (@nicolettepaige) and Colby (@colby_fratto). Their happiness and kindness shows in these pictures.  We were planning on shooting at this location for a hot second before heading out to Salt Lake City to hopefully get a "better" location. But as we started shooting, I realized something... It's not about the location! Shooting in Salt Lake City instead of this random building wouldn't have magically made the shoot better. So instead of focusing on WHERE we were shooting, I focused on WHAT I was trying to capture. I didn't care about cool backgrounds or scener ...

kaleidoscope
Lately I have felt stuck inside a box that has a huge sign on the front of it saying "No Creativity Allowed." I love photography and it is my passion, but it can be so difficult to stay creative. One minute I'm on a creative high, and the next I don't even have a single creative bone in my body. I kept trying to step outside my box and do something that wasn't me. But, I realized that I didn't need to get outside of my box, I just needed to take off the sign. One day I was scrolling through Amazon (always saving lives, am I right?) and I found this diamond and the rest is history. Thanks to Makenna (@makenna_alyse on instagram) for helping ...

Wildflowers and Bridals
I love answering questions about photography. What's better than talking about your passion and what you love? A couple weeks ago, I asked on instagram what questions people had for me and the response I received was incredible. When I was first starting out as a photographer, I had so many questions. Part of me wanted to message one hundred photographers and find my answers, but the other part of me felt dumb for asking simple questions. So, I resulted to YouTube to avoid humiliation. Well, can I tell you a secret? EVERYONE STARTS SOMEWHERE. Nobody becomes a good photographer overnight. It takes practice, time, research, and asking questi ...

Kelsie & Austin, Old Train Station Bridals
This old train station in downtown Salt Lake City, UT was the perfect place for some moody bridals. After we hit the city, we made our way to the Salt Flats for more dreamy shots. Austin and Kelsie are so fun to photograph and they are such a rad couple. You can just tell by looking at these pictures how authentic they are. xo

Jessica & Alex, El Paso Texas Wedding
This day started out at the Indigo Hotel Downtown El Paso, TX. As the day went on, more memories were made and the laughs got louder. A beautiful ceremony was followed by a breathtaking backyard reception. The bride and groom supplied a  Dior and Cigar bar for the guests along with "I Spy" for the kids. This wedding could've been in a movie. I can't even explain how much fun I had partying with these people. Congrats Jessica and Alex! xo dream

Julie + Jp + Puppy Love
I love doing in home sessions. Not just because it's winter right now and we don't freeze to death, but because your home means so much and holds so many memories. I especially loved this shoot because Boon the pup made the cutest appearances in our shots. xo

Olga & Greg Washington wedding
Olga and Greg came to Utah for their engagements and I immediately fell in love with them. The relationship they have is truly something special. The wedding took place in Washington State a few months later. They started off the day getting ready with their best friends and had a dreamy first look on a nearby dock. We drove through a sea of trees to get to the chapel where the ceremony would take place. Believe it or not, Olga and Greg shared their first kiss at the end of their ceremony! The ceremony was in Ukrainian and although I couldn't understand the words being said, I could FEEL the emotions in the room. After a fun reception, we fin ...

Smay & Adam dinner date
Smay and Adam have the perfect home. Not perfect in the sense of, perfectly decorated or perfectly clean. But a perfect place to be with the one you love. I am so happy I got to capture them in their element. Thanks for letting me crash your dinner party! xo
