Mountain Engagement Session // Utah Wedding Photographer

Mikayla and Riley were such a fun couple to work with. So comfortable with each other and so in love! Mikayla and Riley met online and hit it off immediately. Mikayla is the niece of my brother-in-law (did you follow that? Ha!) and so I felt an immediate connection to her. They are getting married in June and I'm truly honored to be a part of their special day. Can't wait!

As a photographer, the Utah weather is not always my friend. The day of this session was cold and windy and we considered rescheduling our shoot, but went ahead in the end. And, I'm so glad we did! With the barren trees and skiffs of snow, the wind and clouds only added to the romance and raw feeling of the session.

Congratulations, Riley and Mikayla. I am so happy for you both!

Kelti and Jake Spring Engagements

Bear with me as I get a little personal, and possibly emotional.  Meet Kelti and her handsome fiance, Jake.  Kelti holds a very special place in my heart, and in the hearts of my children!  When she was younger she babysat my kids for me.  They loved her and she was always their first request!  She never failed to come prepared with special activities for them and even used her own money to buy them Christmas gifts one year.  She showered them with love and kindness and won a place in all of our hearts.  We simply adore her!  Kelti and I share a love for photography and she has assisted me on several photo shoots.  She is talented, hard-working and sweet as they come.  She's a keeper and I'm so happy for her that she has found the love of her life.    

When Kelti shared her wonderful news of being engaged to Jake and asked me to photograph their wedding, I was beyond thrilled!  I'm not going to lie, I was also a little emotional thinking that this sweet girl is all grown up and getting married.  But, even more than those feelings, I'm just so happy for her!  She and Jake are a beautiful, fun couple and I know they will have a life filled with joy, love and success.  Seeing them together and so in love was enough to make this old mama's heart burst with happiness.

Kelti and Jake I'm ecstatic for the two of you.  Thank you for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives.  Can't wait for the wedding!
