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.
Spring, Winter, Spring...That's what a few miles up the canyon will give you in Utah! And Catherine and Jama are perfect whether it's a little green or a little snowy. I think the world of these two, and their sweet happiness! It's Catherine and Jama week (or weeks, knowing my blog track record.) I can't wait to show their bridals and wedding day. It includes tacos and and confetti canons, so you know it's going to be a party!
Laura and Bryce had the loveliest of summer weddings! Garden Park Ward holds a special place in my heart, and I loved Laura's dark cream, fitted lace, dress. She looked amazing, and together Laura and Bryce were so wonderfully happy. Carolyn May, of May Flowers, did such a beautiful job on the flowers. The bouquets are so happy and festive. Some of my favorite details were the snow cones, homemade cake, by Laura herself, and the decorations, which Laura's sweet family designed and put together. But even better than pretty decorations and an amazing cake, are two people in love. Just warms my heart, I tell you! Congratulations Laura and Bryce!
The inspiration for this shoot was born in the middle of last winter, when it was cold and grey, and I was yearning for sun and color. It was executed on a hot day last June, surrounded by forest fires, with ash falling on our heads. From start to finish, this was a project of love and I can honestly say this body of work, is some of my proudest. I wanted to challenge myself, and in the process had the amazing blessing of working with some of the most beautiful and talented women around. I can't say enough thank you's to Sarah Winward, Jayne Swallow, Melissa Blackburn and April Benincosa for their talent, friendship, and incredible collaboration! A huge thank you to Mari and Blake for being our beautiful models and to my husband, Scott, for making 6 dozen bundt cakes, being the heavy lifter, U-haul driver, and all-around, wonderful supporter that he is. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! And I'm so excited to share that this shoot is featured in the current edition of Utah Bride and Groom! Thank you Val for the beautiful feature! There are so many wonderful articles and beautiful weddings in this issue! I'm honored to be a part of such an amazing magazine and collection of work.
