"I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart: I am. I am. I am. ~ Slyvia Plath

Photos from a time I wasn't able to breathe much at all, bronchitis lungs, baby occupying my center, and a winter of dirty air and little sunshine. On this day I found my lungs clear with the clean, heavy air of green space. I felt sunshine. I felt lightness. I felt alive. Every breath this day was a gift.

A huge thank you to one of my very best friends, Cynthia, for being my muse this cold, winter day.

Katelin and Tony ~ Cliffrose Lodge Wedding

The mountains are calling, and I must go ~ John Muir springdalewedding_0001_greenapplephotography

Here is a peak and Katelin and Tony's beautiful wedding in the shadow of Zion National Park. Zion always makes my heart sing, and I was honored to share in this beautiful, epic, absolutely amazing day at the Cliffrose Lodge in Springdale, Utah. From thoughtful details (local agate and stone, prickly pear cocktails, succulents and custom invitations,) to a sweet Ceremony and killer dance party, it was a perfect day! Thank you so much for having me out to share with you two!

Maddy and Garrett ~ Utah Mountain Bridals

Utah Wedding Photographer What's better than putting your wedding dress on once? Putting it on a second time! Maddy and Garrett had such a lovely wedding day, we decided to head out on a "slightly" warmer Autumn afternoon, and do a post-wedding and bridal session in the Utah mountains. There is probably nothing better than the Utah Mountains in the Autumn. Maaaaaybe salted chocolate. I'm so lucky to have spent this happy afternoon with Maddy and Garrett, documenting their almost-year anniversary. What a sweet way to honor their happiness.

Caroline and Jack ~ Snowbasin Wedding

greenapplephotography_001_utahfilmphotographer Snow and Peonies, Family and Intimacy, Springtime and Mountains: Caroline and Jack's wedding was filled with moments that were tender and hilarious, beautiful and awe-inspiring. I love the changing of the seasons, and that winter hadn't quite let go of her snowy hold for Caroline and Jack's spring wedding: beautiful example of extremes from the top to bottom of the mountain. Maybe life is like that sometimes, beauty in the extremes. A million wishes for Caroline and Jack and their life to hold just as much love and adventure as this beautiful day in late May.

Amanda and Landon ~ Utah Spring Wedding

storyboard001 It was a Spring day, cloudy and slightly chilly.

The day was suppose to rain, and then it didn't.

She wore a fitted, beaded gown, he wore a blue suit.

He made her laugh. She held his hand.

The sun glowed when they danced.

Then he spun and kissed her. They could see the whole world.

Amanda and Landon have a million stories in their hearts from their wedding. I'm just here to get help that memory be tangible. To be revisited and remembered and cherished. Congratulations Amanda and Landon.

Charity and Ian | Utah Autumn Wedding

Fall_Wedding_Utah_0002_greenapplephotography Clear eyes, full hearts.

That's the way Charity and Ian see the world and it's the way they love everyone in that world.

I'm just so grateful I was able to spin in their orbit for a little bit. One little story. Charity and Ian hand wrote thank you letters to every single wedding dinner guest, including me. I was incredibly touched and I feel like that sums up the two of them pretty well. Always paying it forward, adding to the goodness in the world.

You can view Charity's lovely blog here, where she chronicles their love story and adventure.

Elyse and David Sundance Wedding ~ Published Utah Bride and Groom

greenapple_sundance_0001I've been waiting to share this wedding for over a year, and the day is finally here! Elyse and David's incredibly thoughtful and beautiful wedding is published in Utah Bride and Groom! I couldn't think of a prettier home for a wedding that was completely heartfelt. This wedding means a lot to me for many reasons. I watched Elyse grow up. I moved into her neighborhood when I was a newlywed myself and ended up being her Church teacher. And I always loved Elyse. She was someone who had a vision for her life, knew what she wanted, had a wicked sense of humor and the warmest heart. We kept in touch over the years, and she met the perfect man in David. They are artists and teachers, living in New York City. Their love story is a special one, one of friendship, support and love in good times and the not so good times. They are both articulate, kind, generous, creative, and adventurous. Elyse and David's vision was to combine Elyse's love of the Utah mountains, with their home in New York City, so rustic big city? The wedding was a family affair of contributing talents, from the Chuppa,  invitations by Elyse's sister, Hannah, and beautiful acoustic music from a close friend.  David drew scenes of New York on the table cards and serenaded Elyse. Their vows brought me to tears, their speeches made me laugh (and mad libs!) and I truly felt that I was witnessing two soul mates starting their journey together.

Congratulations Elyse and David! And Thank you Val at Utah Bride and Groom for the lovely feature in the new magazine!

Lizzy and Chase | Texas Prairie Wedding

greenapplephotography_0001_texasprairiewedding When a Michigan girl meets a California boy in Utah, true love happens. When they get married in Texas, it turns into pure magic.

Thank you, thank you Lizzy for having me fly all the way out to be a part of your beautiful, intimate wedding. There might have been a little rain (so much rain!) at the Ceremony, but that didn't stop a single thing.

Abandoned Mansion | Film Editorial

“Love her, love her, love her! If she favours you, love her. If she wounds you, love her. If she tears your heart to pieces – and as it gets older and stronger, it will tear deeper – love her, love her, love her!” -Charles Dickens, Great Expectations


I've always loved the darker side of things. Wuthering Heights was the first book that I really remember inhaling (anyone else read like that?) I like stormy days, and songs in minor, wandering souls, and I've been a lover of fairy tales as long as I can remember. Early spring tends to bring this side out of me, and Allison, of La Feté, and I were inspired by the darker side of fairy tales, with a little Great Expectation mixed in. We wanted a shoot that was haunting, emotive, and follows the journey of a girl, neglected in her wedding finery, waiting for her lost love.

There are so many stories I want to tell about this shoot, which we secretly dubbed, haunted mansion. From my assistant falling into a rotting pool of water, flowers three days late, some blood and near fainting, there was definite a bit of misadventure going on as well. But that is what makes what we do such a great adventure. Read below for all the amazing contributors, who lent their talents and gifts to our labor of love!

If you'd like to see, Abandoned Mansion was featured on Magnolia Rouge! Eek! Also, I wanted to send a lot of love to Allison, La Feté. She has been an amazing collaborator, friend, artist and soul sister. There was a lot going on during this shoot, and she still created the most beautiful world. Thank you Allison!

Gather Editorial

Love Elements, Gather Autumn Florals Sometimes you get lucky enough to meet a kindred soul, a la Anne of Green Gables style. I'm so lucky to have met Allison Baddley, owner of La Fete Floral and Events. Allison is an amazing talent, and we have been collaborating together on a little project called, Love Elements. The premise is simple. We want to create simple, beautiful inspiration, based off of three elements. For our first shoot, we wanted to focus on wheat, persimmon, and gold. Allison says it beautifully below. A huge thank you to Laura Miller, of You Doll Design for the calligraphy, and Beckie Winston, of Maison Confisserie and Boutique for the beautiful jewelry. Read below to read Allison's eloquent description.

For our first Love elements collaboration, we were inspired by the word “Gather” and wanted to showcase autumn’s natural bounty.  We liked the idea of gathering a big bouquet of golden wheat straight from nature, so obvious to us our first element was going to be  - WHEAT.

From there, we decided that we would like a natural looking model with wheat colored hair in a simple wheat colored dress. We liked the idea of using her natural beauty with a pop of orange red on her lips and darling orange booties. Our thoughts again went to the rich colorful fruits of the season and our 2nd element came to mind - PERSIMMON.

Even though the model is a natural beauty, we still wanted to add some sparkle to our shoot and we looked to Beckie Winston, the owner of Maison Confisserie & Boutique for something delicate and pretty that represented the gold found in autumn.  She donated the simple, yet amazing earrings and bracelets for the shoot and we decided that they represented our last element perfectly – GOLD.

The love element story – Everything about our story was inspired by our 3 Love elements. We decided that the Utah Mountains were the perfect setting because the backdrop is breathtakingly stunning this time of year.  Also, we instantly thought of the sweet and beautiful Elizabeth Pynes to use as our model.  She has never modeled before and has such a sweet quality about her because, believe it or not, she has no idea how beautiful she is. The story follows the simple path of a young girl in love.  She is out for an autumn stroll with the intent of gathering nature’s harvest.  Along the way, she gathers a bountiful bushel of golden wheat and also makes an autumnal bouquet and adorns her hair with flowers.
