Romantic Studio Elevn Bridals | Hannah + Cole | Utah Bridal Photographer

Romantic Studio Elevn Bridals

Hannah and Cole are taking bridals to a whole new level with their romantic shoot at Studio Elevn in Salt Lake! I love their personalities and the fact that it didn’t take them long to let their individuality shine through. I honestly didn’t know if I was going to get serious romance  or their fun side. And Hannah, come on, what a BEAUTIFUL bride she is!  I completely LOVED shooting at this location with this bride and groom!

 

Bridals capture the best of the two of you! Give me a holler to and schedule your shoot today!

Tips to Getting a Jumpstart on Planning Your Wedding

Getting a Jumpstart on Planning Your Big Day

He’s popped the question, (YAY!!!!) but now you’re left asking yourself, “What now?” “Where do I begin,” and “Who do I call first?”  Well, I’m here to help you get a jumpstart on planning your big day and give you some direction on where to start.

Choose Your Team

First, your bridal party will be your biggest supporters so get your team together and stack it full of all of your favorite people; people that you love and trust to help you along your way. Having a strong team means being able to delegate responsibilities to individuals that will help relieve the stress that is sure to be present during the entire planning process.
Budget

Before you can move on with your plans, you have to know what your budget is so a good place to start, once you have you have your support team in place, is to talk to your fiancé and those involved to decide what you have to spend. This will help you know what you can live without and what you can’t.


Hire Professionals

Next, hire professionals for all of your wedding needs. Book your wedding planner. Book your wedding videographer and then find yourself a wedding photographer that will help you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera. Being a photographer myself, this is a BIG one! Everyone has that someone they know that “takes pictures” but we’re are talking about this BIGGEST. DAY. OF.  YOUR. LIFE! Trust me, find someone that is professional and so you are guaranteed to have your best moments captured and every minute documented.


Pick a date

Pick a few different dates that will work for you and your fiancé and go from there.  Be sure to be mindful of the time of year and what your family and friends will have going on in their lives’ so that everyone you want at your wedding will be able to attend without issue.

Wedding Colors

Choose those wedding colors.  Your wedding is all about you and who you are. You want it to be reflection of your tastes and preferences so, although, current color trends may be beautiful, find something you know you will love. Stay true to your style. Starting early with a color scheme allows you to be on the lookout for decor or items for your wedding while you are in the planning process.

Guest List

Lastly, work on that guest list.  This can be one of the biggest projects in the beginning of the wedding planning process but once it’s done will give you an idea of what wedding venues will accommodate all of your family and friends. A good estimate of who will be attending will help you find the perfect place to hold your wedding/reception.

I hope you found these tips to be helpful! If you need anything or have additional questions, you know who to call!

Salt Lake Temple Wedding

Ashley and Jared started their gorgeous wedding day at the Salt Lake Temple and ended it celebrating becoming Mr. & Mrs. Stewart at the Thanksgiving Point Gardens with an outdoor reception. I didn’t think they could top their morning together on the temple grounds but then I saw their reception and it was every bit as magical. Congrats on starting you forever you two!

Summer Nights Holding My Littles Tight

You guys!!! My babies are getting so big! I can’t even stand it! I honestly don’t feel like I’m getting any older until I look at my kids and see how fast time is passing me by.  Summer always brings with it busy days filled with activities for the kids (or really all of us) like swimming lessons, sports, vacations, family, birthdays and on, and on. I loved taking a little time out to capture my loves right now, as they are.  It was so nice to take a minute just us.  I want to keep them little like this forever but know I can’t. In the meantime, I’ll look through these photos and reminisce about the summer nights we have left and how I want to hold my littles tight for as long as I possibly can. I am so lucky to have such and amazing partner to go through this crazy life with and want to wish that big guy in the center of our world the happiest birthday today! Mikey we love you to the moon and back. You are the glue that holds us all together and the kids just adore you. I am so grateful for you, your love and the way you always put family first!

Summer Salt Lake Temple Wedding

A Salt Lake Temple wedding is always so romantic. Especially, with incredible weather like this. It really can’t be beat! From the summer sun outside the Salt Lake Temple, to a beautiful reception in a rustic, mountain setting, Brynne and Joseph’s wedding day was the stuff dreams are made of. Brynne was beaming. Joseph was looking quite dapper in his suit, and the whole wedding party with the men in their pale pink ties and the bridesmaids in their navy floral dresses just brought the summer vibe to this day! I LOVED being a part of it! Congrats to this new Mr. &Mrs!

Adding a bride and groom to the mix of history and architecture in Washington DC just makes me smile. With historic sites and monuments galore, who can say they saw their bride for the very first time right in front of the Washington Monument?  Or wore their wedding dress in front of Lincoln? With our country celebrating its independence tomorrow, I couldn’t wait to share this shoot with you!! Even Honest Abe would agree that Amber makes a BEAUTIFUL bride. Happy Fourth of July!

Big Cottonwood Canyon Bridals

The mountains in Utah are one of my favorite places to shoot. It’s pretty obvious why. They are GORGEOUS especially this little spot up Big Cottonwood Canyon at Jordan Pines. Kylie and Dakota looked like they belonged here! From Kylie’s beautiful, earthy bouquet, to Dakota’s floral tie and laid back attitude; the mountains set a perfect stage for these love birds. I especially love his expression that we were able to capture of him seeing his bride, Kylie, for the very first time. Makes me smile every time I see it.

Payson Temple

I’m postive that Kjiersten and James smiled their entire wedding day! Their together forever began at the beautiful Payson Temple and ended with a night of dancing at the Thanksgiving Point Gardens. I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t get any better than a romantic garden reception. The setting was full of outdoor lighting above, music, a beautiful garden backdro with the sun setting in the background. The night was PERFECTION! As I watched Kjiersten and James become husband and wife for time and all eternity, I couldn’t help but think of how grateful I was that I could be a part of their wedding day.

Thanksgiving Point Gardens Bridal Shoot with Brooke Bakken | Utah Bridal Photographer

Early Summer Thanksgiving Point Garden Bridals

With warmer weather sneaking up, Thanksgiving Point Gardens with all of its GORGEOUS flowers in bloom, are a sought after location for any wedding related early summer shoot. It’s pretty easy to see why! There are flowers EVERYWHERE!!! Everything is in blossom from spring through early summer, and really the whole setting just has romance written all over it! I had a blast capturing Ashley and Tyler here together during their bridal session. They looked like the perfect little wedding cake topper as they kissed under the gazebo. And Tyler’s suit with his pink floral tie fit right in.
