Great Salt Lake Engagement Photographs

Holly and Eric's engagement session pretty much ruled. The only time we could meet and have good sunlight was at 8 a.m. on a Sunday morning in February. I met Holly and Eric at their place and off we went to the Great Salt Lake. It was really cold, but really beautiful with the clearest blue sky. Whoa-as I just wrote "clearest blue sky", Johnny Cash sang, "clear blue sky" from my computer. Coincidence? I think not. Okay, back to regularly scheduled blogging... So, Holly and Eric and I set off on our cold photographing adventure. I knew I didn't have to do anything typical with them, and could really let my art out. The thin blanket of snow, crisp blue sky, and frost clinging to grasses was the perfect backdrop to Holly and Eric in their simple black and jeans outfits and their natural look. I teased them about how they had the same glasses and they told me that they are basically copies of each other with their glasses and long hair, often both wearing black and jeans. They both love and own Volkswagons. Eric sells 'em and probably knows more about them than just about anyone. He also races them and wins a lot. Anything other than VWs are "off brand".

Holly and Eric's wedding is in September at Rose Sachs Gardens, a place I love to shoot. I'm looking forward to it. I also can't wait for Holly's bridal portrait session. I've got some awesome ideas for that and I got a sneak peek of her dress the other day. It's gorgeous.
