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 ...

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 ...

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!

Emma & Jesse
So here's the deal... before this shoot I was feeling SO DOWN about my photography. Being an artist means riding a constant roller coaster. One minute you feel like the best photographer in the world, and the next you feel like chucking your camera off a cliff. Before they came to pick me up, I was searching Pinterest for inspiration of how I wanted this shoot to feel. I knew Emma had a contagious smile and I knew I wanted to capture that. I also knew I wanted to capture the emotions that they were feeling and have been feeling through this whole adventure of falling in love with each other. We had so much fun laughing and shooting. (and stop ...

Jessica & Jordan’s Rocky Engagements
For whatever reason you have to evacuate your house and you can only take ONE item with you. (your family and pets are safe) WHAT WOULD IT BE. Am I the only one that thinks of this question daily? yes? k. cool.
Here are some happy engagements to scroll through while you ponder the above question.

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 ...

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!
