Anne + Dustin | Married {Utah Wedding Photographer}

They met on a blind date, and as we all know how those rarely ever go as planned, these two became friends and would fall in love! And I am so glad they did because they are truly perfect for one another! Anne and Dustin had a beautiful and intimate wedding day full of family and their closest friends and even more smiles from everyone around them! I truly do have the most beautiful brides with impeccable taste. Anne was a vision in her gorgeous gown from The Perfect Dress and I was beyond elated that she chose to use Petal Pixie for her florals, because when you see what a genius Kim is with flowers, I cannot get enough of every bouquet she designs. I was in heaven this whole day, because honestly Anne gave me SO much time for portraits of the two of them and for capturing her day as it flowed. The day was so relaxed and easy going, I forgot I was “working”. And Millcreek Inn was THE perfect setting for her fabulous day! All in all, I loved every moment with these two lovebirds and I am so grateful to call them my friends. I cannot wait to see what these two create together as husband and wife!

Blushing Rose Floral | Flower Friday {Utah Wedding Photographer}

It’s Flower Friday again and I have yet ANOTHER gorgeous bouquet/model combo to show off from Blushing Rose Floral!! I absolutely LOVE these deep rich hues, mixed with the pops of green! It was the perfect combo with a beautiful bride in an extremely lush green environment. A huge thank you to Sarah for creating something perfect and to the beautiful bride Brinley for allowing me to get her in front of my camera! I must not forget the ever so beautiful  job on hair and make up by Lindsay with Signature Brides.  I absolutely LOVE having a killer team, that each bring something so amazing and unique to the table. It made for such an awesome evening….and don’t worry we still have two more stunning brides and bouquets to go from this crew!! (more…)

Cristina + Colton | Married {Utah Wedding Photography}

As we transition into fall (sad face because that means winter is just around the corner) I want to make sure that I get these two amazing people up on my blog and feature their wedding day on “Wedding Wednesday”! I absolutely LOVED their color palette for they big day and LOVED the huge party they threw for their family and friends! Everyone around these two just adores them and they without a doubt are two of the nicest and most genuine people I know. I felt so incredibly honored to document their love story and it’s all because a past #brookesbride sent Cristina my way! There is no greater compliment then past brides telling their friends about me, my brand and my work! That feeling will never get old. Anywho…back to the love birds!! Come take a stroll down memory lane and help me congratulate them on a very soon to be Happy 1st Anniversary! (more…)

Alisha + Matthew | Married {Utah Wedding Photographer}

Alisha and Matthew met while on a blind date to their PROM and a few short years later they find themselves PROMising forever (see what I did there??). They  were married this August on a BEAUTIFUL day in the Salt Lake Temple and seeing the smile on their faces make me so in love with my job. From the moment they walked out the doors to hug their family and friends with smiles from ear to ear, I knew it was going to be a fabulous day! And guess what…I was SO right!! They not only were amazing to photograph and trusted me every step of the way, but also know how to throw one heck of a PARTY! The dance floor was full and it was rockin!! I absolutely adore when a bride gets out on the dance floor and lets loose…it is after all HER special day!  But I just LOVE how much her family made her day unforgettable by supporting their little sister, beautiful daughter and friend. Top that off with one killer sparkler exit, and I went home one incredibly happy photographer! Alisha and Matt, I am so grateful to know both of you and I miss you already! XO

Grace + Michael | Married { Sonoma Wedding Photographer}

I have been trying to think of the perfect time to blog this wedding, and with this beautiful and amazing couple about to celebrate their one year anniversary next week…I thought we could take a stroll down memory lane and relive their PERFECT wedding day! Side note: I just made a FABULOUS sample album from their wedding day and I can’t help but share the album design because I am drooling over every single spread! Really the hardest part about album design is choosing what images to put in when every image makes your heart swoon! My hope and wish is that every one of my brides not only invest in beautiful photography but also in an album. Don’t settle for keeping your images tucked away on your flash drive or computer…get them on the walls and in an album that you can enjoy and show off to family, friends and posterity for years to come! I promise you will never regret it!

Now here are a few words from the beautiful bride about her day!

We traveled to northern California in the spring in search of the perfect destination for our wedding. Our hearts were set on an intimate ceremony in a beautiful location, and Sonoma delivered both. One hundred and forty six family and friends came from all corners of the United States to celebrate with us. We could not have dreamed a better day. Michael and I wanted our wedding to centered on the importance to us of family. The maids of honor were both my sisters and bridesmaids were Michael’s two sisters. The best man was his father and the groosmen (was at the time) his future brother in law. Ring bearer was his nephew Ethan.

We got married in the Catholic Church in the heart of Sonoma, Saint Francis Solano Catholic Church and the wedding reception was at Cline Cellars Vineyard. I chose white flowers with lots of luscious greenery and gold as my accent color. I wanted the wedding to be classic and elegant. I chose to follow tradition and used the tool around my bouquet was from my mothers wedding dress as my something old & my something borrowed was my mothers pearl ring which I wore on my right hand. We used toasting flutes that belonged to my parents that they used at their wedding 27 years ago! Our cake knife was used at my grandparents wedding (mother side), and it has been since used by my mother, her two sisters, and now passed down to me (the eldest of 3 girls). It has every couple’s first names and the date they got married engraved on the knife.

One of my favorite things was how we honored our lost loved ones. Michael and I have lost a lot of extended family members so we wanted to make a sign at the reception to honor the families who have personally lost them, letting them know they were there in spirit!
