Celebrate Everyday | Utah Wedding Portraits

I've been excited for this shoot for so long! I love getting to work with creative people for a good cause! Another student at the University of Utah is the founder of Celebrate Everyday, a FREE Dress Rental company. And let's be real, what's better than free prom dresses. It's inspiring to see such dedicated girls working to do something truly amazing in our community. Go ahead and check them out at http://www.celebrateeveryday.info and of course, give them a follow on Instagram! (@celebrate.everyday). Along with the dresses we had an incredible makeup artist, Camberly Shaw (@hairstylist_cam on Instagram) and beautiful flowers from Breezy Floral - check them out at http://www.breezyfloral.com (@breezyfloral on Instagram). 

We were laughing pretty much this entire shoot! Tia, our model was a dream to work with. She's got the greatest personality and looked drop dead gorgeous in the lace designer dress! Wedding Portraits in Utah are so beautiful, no matter the season there's so many beautiful locations to shoot at! For this shoot we headed up to the State Capitol just in time to grab the last little bit of fall. 

Check out some of my favorite images from this shoot! 

Emma | Fall Utah Senior Portraits

We LOVE working with Emma! She's got the best serious face and such a fun personality! We decided to explore Thanksgiving Point's Ashton Gardens for her fall portraits - and let me tell you, it was a dream! I love that area and would love to go back again! 

It's getting too late for Fall Portraits here in Utah - but winter is just as fun! Be sure to book early as these months get pretty crazy as families start booking for Christmas pictures. 

Check out some of my favorite shots from Emma's Session! 

Smoke Bombs | Utah Senior Portraits

Ok guys, this is something we've been dying to do forever - AND IT WAS INCREDIBLE! Working with smoke bombs were a 100% new experience, but we got some amazing shots! Check it out - we also did some sunset shots, but more on that later. 

Want to work with smoke bombs? Let us know! We LOVED it and would totally be down to do it again. 

Garrett and Brianna | Utah Couple Photography

I absolutely love this couple! Garrett first contacted me wanting to do this session as a surprise gift for their first anniversary (LOVE). In the last two weeks since this session they've gotten engaged! So a huge congratulations to them! 

We had so much fun taking portraits at Daybreak, Utah! It's such a cute little village, I've said this before but I could totally see myself living out there one day. 

Check out some of my favorite shots from their session! 

Melissa | Utah Senior Fall Portraits

Ok, so I know you see a lot of pictures of Melissa on my page, but she's always been my go to - PLUS she's a senior representative this year! We did two sessions with her over the last week in a half, so here's some of my favorites from her first session! 

I LOVE Utah in the Fall. The colors are so vibrant and there's SO much to explore! I'm hoping the season holds on for a few more weeks to get some extra shoots in before the snow. Of course, I'm in love with all things fall - including PUMPKINS! So we decided, totally last minute, to do some fun things with pumpkins! 

Enjoy! 

A Mermaid and Her Pirate | Utah Senior Pictures

Ok guys, this is a shoot we've been DREAMING about for the past two years!! And it finally came together! I was a little worried about rain but the day was beautiful! Our beautiful models had their hair and makeup done by the amazing Emily and Bekah at Kellie and Company. We absolutely loved our experience in their salon. Their creativity really made this whole shoot come together. Check them out at @Kellie_Company or www.KellieandCompany.com

Melissa has been obsessed with Captain Jack Sparrow forever, and we found this incredible house in San Diego and just couldn't resist putting this shoot together! Turns out her best friend, Aubrey, love mermaids - so naturally, we added her in! Best Senior Pictures Ever! 

We went out to Daybreak for this fun beach look (Daybreak, by the way, is ADORABLE and you can totally expect me to live there with my cute family one day ;) ). We wanted to use a canoe but they wouldn't let us leave the dock - so I was literally knee deep in water in the dock to get those incredible boat shots! WORTH IT! 

Check out what is forever my favorite shoot! 

 

Emma | Utah Senior Portraits

Meet one of our 2018 Senior Representatives, Emma! Emma is a senior from Skyridge High. I love her spunky personality and that perfect smile of hers! We headed down to Provo Center Street earlier this month and has the most wonderful weather! I love how they turned out, take a look. And don't worry - we've got so much more coming! Want to save on your senior pictures? Ask Emma how! 

 

The Proposal | Utah Engagement Pictures and Video

My amazing cousin got engaged today! I was so blessed to be apart of it! Check out the video and photos we captured of the special day :) 

 

The Millers | Utah Family Pictures

The one thing I've learned while starting my career in photography is that things don't always go as planned. You can plan out every little detail as the client - but kids will find a way to run the whole show. That's what happened with this session, but a bit of play hasn't hurt anyone! We had so much fun during this session and the Miller family is ADORABLE!! Check out some of my favorite images!
