Megan + Alex | Silver Lake Couple's Session

Megan + Alex | Silver Lake Couple's Session

It was just over two years ago that I was photographing Megan and Alex’s winter wedding. I still remember the day like it was yesterday! It rained, sleeted, and snowed that day. Definitely not our favorite weather. I just remember how grateful we all felt that we…

You know that moment when you’re smiling so big and your heart is loving so much, and just when you think the moment couldn’t make you feel anything more or greater, it takes you by surprise and it’s almost as if you’re going to explode with all the happiness in the world??

Monkia + Davin | Utah State Capitol First Look and Formals

Shifting his weight nervously from leg to leg, unsure of what to do with his hands, Davin waited semi impatiently as Monika made her way towards him. And with the touch of her hand on his shoulder, he turned around. It was as if there were several emotions competing for the stage…

Taylor Family | Utah Fall Family Portraits

When they first met, I’m sure they had hopes and dreams and ultimately no idea what the future would hold for them. What started as a beautiful journey of two, started to grow to a journey of three. Then a journey of four. Then five, six, seven…. And they had amazing years together. How do I know? Because all they did was play together during our session….

Alex + Jeremy | This is the Place Heritage Park Formals and First Look

Jeremy stood there, his back to his bride-to-be. His knees were probably trembling. His eyes were closed. His heart was pounding. He inhaled and exhaled slowly, attempting to calm all the excitement and anticipation that felt as if it were going to make his heart burst…

Together they sat in tears, holding each other. It was the end of one of their most cherished chapters in life, and yet the beginning of another beautiful chapter. She was the reason that they met. She was reason that they fell in love. It was her life that gave Chelsea and Markanthony a life… together…

Orton Family | Fall Family Session

The leaves crunching beneath our feet, the golden light streaming through the trees, the soft whisper of the water trickling down the stream… it was all just perfect. This little trail was the perfect spot for the Orton’s fall family session. The only thing that could have made this otherwise perfect session better…

There wasn’t supposed to be snow, but if you’ve ever lived in Utah, you know that the weather just does what it wants! So our beautiful family fall mini sessions turned into a beautiful family winter mini session! I guess that’s great for Christmas cards though! Really though, you can’t…

Markanthony + Chelsea | Editorial Fall Mountain Formals

Most couples do a first look or first something, but this time it was a first for me: no looking!! Markanthony is a very traditional kind of groom and the first time he ever wants to see his bride on his wedding day, which just barely passed so now I can show you these formals that I’ve been dying to share!!

I’ll never forget when little 5 year old Jonny came up to me and said “Do you know what damage means?? Damage means LOTS of damage!” and proudly walked off, leaving me laughing till the point of tears. Now he’s this handsome young man…

Monika + Davin | Aspen Grove Utah Engaegment Session

One of my favorite things about living in Utah is all of our beautiful mountains!! They are so incredibly majestic. While I love all of the mountain ranges, I particularly love the mountains in Utah Valley. I wish I could drive up them every day!!

Chelsea + Markanthony | Meadow and Lakeside Utah Engagements

It has been such a JOY getting to know these two better!! When I first met MarkAnthony at our initial consultation, I could see how he was a perfect fit for my friend Chelsea. All the things he said, the way he looked at her, and his respect for her, would make any girl happy for life. And that is exactly what Chelsea deserves!! He was so…

Sheridan + Jared | Mount Timpanogos and Wadley Farms Wedding

I can hardly believe when a wedding comes and goes. I spend so much time getting to know these amazing people and helping them plan their wedding that it feels so weird to me when it all ends! They go on their honeymoon, and I lock myself away with my computer in my office to get to work. It kinda makes me sad sometimes…
