Kennedy & Chandler’s Colorful Wedding


This wedding had SO MUCH COLOR. Especially in the flower arrangements done by the incredible Madison Murdock (Bloom by Madison) They got married at the Salt Lake City LDS Temple and then had a reception in a friends backyard. It was simple, yet timeless, fun, and classy. They tied balloons to weights so they would sink to the bottom of the pool and stick out of the water. (go find the picture below) There were the yummiest treats from Gourmandise.Kennedy and her dad planned a surprise dance and their dance skills were exceeded my expectations. Everyone danced until they all decided to take a jump in the pool. Kennedy and Chandler ran through sparklers and confetti to end the perfect day.

I also have been getting a lot of questions about what gear I use/love so I am going to list it below with links to everything and where I suggest to buy it!

Cameras- (I am not a big fan of zoom lenses so instead I use two camera bodies with different lenses. ex. during a ceremony I typically put a 35mm 1.4 on my mark iv and an 85mm 1.8 on my mark iii)

Canon 5D Mark IV

Canon 5D Mark III


Canon 35mm 1.4L (I have had the sigma before, but when I got my Mark IV body it had a hard time focusing with it so I switched to canon and have had no problems since)

Canon 85mm 1.8

Canon 50mm 1.2L

Sigma 24mm 1.4

Flash and Lighting-

Canon Speedlite 600EX II-RT

Yongnuo YN600EX-RT II (this flash is extremely similar to the canon option and much cheaper)

Yongnuo Transmitter (is compatible with both flashes listed above)


If you have any other questions, leave them in the comments!

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.
