Smarty Pants - Salt Lake City Senior Photographer

There's something about shooting a senior. It's so inspiring to listen to each of their stories. You're at the top of the chain finally. You're deciding what you're going to do with the rest of your life. You've got it all figured out. That's how I felt about this kid. I wish I could even remember what he said he wanted to be "when he grows up". Biomedical something or other. I'm definitely not smart enough to even know what it was, but I'm glad I get to be the person that documents this time of his life for him.

Meet Braden.

My High School Senior Rep from Herriman High School.

Graduating class of 2011.

Good luck with your last year!

Work Hard - Utah Wedding Photographer

I loved this wedding. Not just becaust it turned out beautiful but because the groom was my brother-in-law. They held their reception in my mother in laws backyard, which is where we held ours as well. It brought back a lot of fun memories and just made me so grateful that I married into the family that I did.

During the ceremony, the man marrying them said something that I'll never forget.

He said, "Marriage is easy if you work at it hard. Marriage is hard if you work at it easy."

I'm by far no expert in the marriage department but I loved this. Just respect one another. Love each other. Be happy together. Work hard at keeping your marriage your top priority.

Congratulations to Preston and Malina!

I can't resist posting some pictures of the cute kids in our family. Especially the one on the left.

And because you never get to see pictures of me on this website, here's me and my family.

Everything - Salt Lake City Wedding Photographer

I had the chance to shoot another beautiful wedding with Vanessa Millecam. I learn so much from her every time I'm with her. She's such an inspiration.

It's so amazing being able to witness brand new couples, and how much they're in love. It's apparent how much they care for one another. It made me think of the song Everything by Michael Buble. At that time in your life there is NOTHING more important than that person.

You're a carousel, you're a wishing well,
And you light me up, when you ring my bell.
You're a mystery, you're from outer space,
You're every minute of my everyday.

And I can't believe, uh that I'm your man,
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we'll see it through,
And you know that's what our love can do.

Good luck on your journey together. I hope you always share the same love you felt on your wedding day.

{ When Life Gives You Lemons } - Salt Lake City Childrens Photographer

When life gives you lemons.....EAT 'EM!

I love making something sweet out of something sour.

I guess when you have a baby as cute as this it's not hard to make anything cuter than it was.

You could put her in a garbage bag and it would still be cute.

I had been wanting to try out more of a vintage type shoot, so when I saw a bag of lemons at the store I grabbed them, ran home and got the baby all dolled up.

So what do you think? Do you like the vintage style?

I think she's pretty cute!

Love Love - Utah Wedding Photographer

I love weddings. I loved my wedding. Sometimes I wish I could redo it just because I loved it so much.

I was so excited when Vanessa Millecam asked me to second shoot a wedding with her. It was such a fun day and I always enjoy talking with her.

The wedding was beautiful. Here's a few of my favorites.

Love to hear your thoughts. Happy Monday!

{ Sweet Treats }

Sometimes it's fun to step out of your comfort zone and shoot something that you're totally unfamiliar with. Photographing food is quite simple. There's no having to tell it to put it's arm there, or smile here. It just sits there. And isn't it pretty?

Not only that but after the photo shoot is over, you get to EAT IT!

Hope your Wednesday is full of sweet surprises!
