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 ...

Well, here I am again posting way more pictures than you probably want to look through but, THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD IDEAS HERE. I couldn't help it.

Elegant, Italian Inspired Backyard Wedding
I tried to narrow these pictures down so you didn't have to scroll through 1.2 million images, and this was the best I could do. I was insanely impressed with this backyard Utah wedding. The bride, groom, and their families worked hard to make this the perfect place for a timeless wedding. See that wooden wall in the first picture? Yeah. They built it. The detail and ideas you will see in this blog post will blow your mind. If you are planning a backyard wedding, I suggest scrolling.

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 ...

Jessica & Blake’s Italian Bridals
Jessica and Blake were engaged in Rome, so these Italian themed bridals were a perfect fit. I have been dyinggg to post this session and now that their wedding day has past, I'm throwing them out for the world to see.

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 ...

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!
