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!

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 ...
Karissa and Wyatt’s Timeless Garden Wedding
This wedding was extra special and a little sad when it was all over because I don't get to hangout with Karissa and Wyatt as often as I have in the past year. We started by taking their engagements on the cliffs of Big Sur which if you haven't seen... go look at them NOW because they were so cute and fun. ( CLICK HERE ) Then Karissa and I went into the Utah mountains to take her bridals. ( CLICK HERE ) Last, their wedding day was to die for. The detail, the ceremony, the food, basically everything was perfect. (wait until you see the look on Wyatt's face when he sees his bride walking towards him) They had their wedding at Red Butte Gardens ...
