Moonrise Kingdom

 

For this editorial shoot in the 2017 issue of Southern Utah Bride magazine, I really wanted to do something fun and different. The idea was inspired by the Wes Anderson film Moonrise Kingdom and the vintage Scout camp sketches from the 1950s and 60s. I teamed up with my favorite gals Forvermore Events and Bloomers to make the vision come to like! I’m so happy with how it all turned out. It was the most relaxed and fun styled shoot to date, even with our little adventure with the canoe. Thank you to all of the talented people who contributed!

Joshua Tree Engagements

 

I had so much fun adventuring around the desert with these two! Siera and Max are an absolute blast to be around and I can’t wait for their wedding in just a few weeks. When we were planning their engagement session, Siera told me they love rock climbing, hiking, and pretty much anything that involves an outdoor adventure. We started the shoot at Ivin’s Reservoir. Sierra and Max skipped some rocks together and frolicked around on the beach. We finished up the shoot in the beautiful desert just outside of Utah where we found plenty of gorgeous Joshua Trees and a beautiful sunset.

 

 

TORI & JOSE SPRING WEDDING AT LICHFIELD PONDS

 

As I was prepping this blog post, I was getting so excited for SPRING! I’m ready for the green to come back and for all of the lovely weddings on my calendar this year. Tori and Jose’s wedding was beautiful and heartfelt. I think my favorite moment from the day was Tori walking down the aisle. She was just so happy and stunning. The look on her face (you’ll see in the photos below) was priceless. I loved working with these two!

 

 

 

Springtime is for Lovers

 

It’s February now, which means spring is just around the corner here in Southern Utah. It’s got me reminiscing about one my favorite engagements shoots from last spring. This engagement session was a dream. The energy and love between these two was so sweet and fun. Combined with the gorgeous colors and light, it was perfect! The first few weeks in March in St. George are just beautiful– the trees are all in bloom downtown, the desert comes alive with color… It’s my absolute favorite. I loved working with Tori and Jose and will be sharing their wedding tomorrow!

 

 

ASHLEIGH & ERIK BRIDALS IN PARK CITY

 

One of the great things about taking your formal portraits before the wedding day is that you get to go somewhere really beautiful and amazing like this spot! And it made the wedding day run so smoothly because we had already taken beautiful portraits beforehand so they could spend all that extra time with their family and friends at the wedding. Joey and I had so much fun hanging out with Ashleigh and Erik during their bridal session in Park City. We got rained on a little bit during the shoot, but these two were such good sports about it and we got some insanely beautiful light– and a gorgeous rainbow at the end! It also helped that we picked an awesome location where we could seek shelter from the rain and have a champagne toast. This shoot is definitely a favorite. It’s romantic, classy, and full of candid moments and love. All the best things.

 

 

SUMMER BRIDALS IN PINE VALLEY

 

We started CJ and Sabrina’s bridal session at the St. George LDS Temple and then headed up to Pine Valley. It was the day before Pine Valley closed because of the wildfire, so we really lucked out that we were able to still shoot there! It also made for some gorgeous warm light. I loved working with these two! They are so much fun to be around. I will share the beautiful photos from their wedding in Pine Valley next!

ROMANTIC SPRING ENGAGEMENTS IN ZION NATIONAL PARK

 

I was thrilled to get to work with Devin and Ashley for their engagements, bridals, and wedding day last spring. They are the sweetest couple, completely beautiful, and have the best chemistry. I mean, it’s pretty obvious from the photos that they’re crazy about each other, right? Zion National Park is such a gorgeous setting any time of year and we were able to get some beautiful shots with the first signs of greenery. We started out at Grafton Bridge in Rockville and then ventured into Zion. I will never tire of shooting at this place. It’s simply the best. Thanks for adventuring with me, Devin and Ashley! I’ll be sharing their bridals and wedding day here on the blog soon too.
