Meet Miranda and Armando! I shot these two love birds at a new location, Tunnel Springs Park in Salt Lake City. A place like this makes you never want to leave. Not only was the setting perfect, but so was the weather! I just LOVE how their pictures turned out!
About the Session
Tunnel Springs feels like we are in the hills of Europe. I kept wanting to twirl and sing like I was in the VonTrapp family in the sound of music. The location couldn’t have fit this couple better! Gorgeous, yet simple. These two don’t need anyone else but each other. They melt into one another so effortlessly and it honestly was so much fun to just witness their love during their session. Miranda and Armando are bound for greatness together and I can’t wait to celebrate their wedding!!
About the Dress
When I asked about the story behind her dress, here is what Miranda had to say:
“I went to a few different shops, including the Nordstrom Bridal Shop and BHLDN in Houston. While visiting The Perfect Dress, I found one that was a pretty close contender, but I was itching to get my hands on ‘my dress’. I just was not finding anything I loved. (I did love that shop though!) I wanted something classic, but not boring. And also nothing too boho or trendy. Ultimately, I wanted something super romantic and flowy.
I was searching through designers online one day and I found my dress. It was exactly what I wanted. I looked online at bridal stores and I saw that Malmrose Bridal in South Jordan carried that designer’s line and so I called and asked about the specific dress and they had it in the store! It was also less than five minutes away from my house! It seemed like a sign. I was so excited. I went in the next day and they were awesome! They let me see the dress and try it on, and also had me pull a few other dresses in case it wasn’t ‘the one’. (Even though I knew it was.) They had me try on a few of my other choices first and finally, I just said. “Yeah so, can I just try on the dress I came for now?” My stylist laughed and was like “say no more”. I put it on and it was magic! It is from the Mon Cheri Modest Line so I didn’t have hardly any alterations and it is my absolute dream dress! It is everything I wanted and more!”
