OKAY FIRST THING'S FIRST.
I took these pictures of Reggie and Kendall and not only are they adorable couple but Reggie is an amazing videographer and photographer and you need to go look at her stuff right now https://www.reggieannfilm.com/
Now, let's get down to business. (please tell me you finished that line)
I've been thinking a lot lately about what makes a 'good' wedding? What defines a wedding as fun, authentic, cheesy, boring, lame, exciting, one-of-a-kind?
I have attended many weddings, as you can imagine, and no two weddings are the same. There is something that makes each wedding unique and it isn't the table ...

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’s Lake and Mountain Bridals
Karissa and Wyatt wanted to wait until their wedding day to see each other in their wedding attire, so the groom didn't join us on this shoot. Karissa is one of the most kind, happy, and real people I know. She looked stunning in this dress and I am so lucky to have been her photographer for her wedding. I just finished up editing their wedding day, and wait until you see Wyatt's reaction when he saw her coming down the aisle.

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. We were having so much fun we basically shot until there was no more light to shoot in.
This shoot was featured over on Utah Valley Bride and you can see it HERE
I shot these on a Canon 5D Mark IV. Canon 35mm 1.4 + Canon 50mm 1.4 & Kelvin white balance. Edited in Lightroom + Photoshop. Leave any questions in the comments!

Mountain Anniversary Shoot
I shot Camille and Tanner's wedding a year ago and when Camille asked me to take anniversary pictures for them I was SO excited. They are such a fun and loving couple and I was pumped that I got to hangout with them again. I love anniversary shoots for multiple reasons. One being that I get to see my cute couples again and two... I get to see how much their love has grown after a year of being married. These pictures were shot at Tibble Fork Reservoir in Utah. For all you Utah people, the reservoir is CRAZY full right now and the deadness of winter has finally gone away. GREEN MOUNTAINS STAY FOREVER. please.

Olympic National Park
Last year I decided to invest in an amazing workshop hosted by some pretty incredible people. The Alpine Northwest workshop (@alpinenorthwest or alpinenw.photo/) was an experience that led me to new friends and much needed inspiration. I added a little 'Behind The Scenes' picture at the end of this post showing the madness that went on behind the cameras.

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 ...

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.
