Katie & German at Tuscany Restaurant

Katie & German were married in Greece, but couldn't take all of their friends along. So, they had a beautiful garden reception at Tuscany Restaurant, in Salt Lake City. They had a rowdy dance party, later that night, but I'll save those photos for another time. Until then, here are some of Katie's bridal portraits, along with some lovely portraits of both Katie & German. I'm in love with the light, setting, and this couple's breathtaking style.

Winter Engagement Photos

I get to do so many fun things with my clients! For Kyle & Erin's snowy engagement session, we threw on our snowshoes, to tromp through the snow, in Big Cottonwood Canyon. That was a first for me. Kyle and Erin decided to jump off of some boulders and get themselves all covered in snow, at the end of the session. It was a blast! 

Kayla & Ryan in Park City

Kayla & Ryan met in Park City, so we thought it would be a great place for their engagement photos. They love their beautiful white dogs, so naturally, we included them in the photos. They were happy to run wild, in the big field at McPolin Farm and I was happy to photograph them in such a gorgeous mountain setting. Kayla & Ryan were really natural in front of the camera. After the white barn, we headed up to Guardsman Pass, for more photos--what an inspiring backdrop!

Alta Lodge Wedding

Elizabeth & Greg were married with the breathtaking mountains of Alta Ski Resort, as their backdrop. There were the happy tears I love to photograph, and some laughter, too, with a Game of Thrones reference (one of my favorite TV series to watch). Their day was simply elegant, with a focus on what matters. We had a quick and beautiful portrait session, following their ceremony. It's amazing what you can do with a little time, stunning scenery, and a joyful couple. Their families were warm, and they weren't afraid to boogie. It was a genuine celebration, with an easy breezy feeling, where I got to focus on my favorite thing...moments and connection.

Sundance Resort Wedding | Leni & John

Leni & John were married in a lovely outdoor ceremony at Sundance Resort, on the Redford Center lawn. They took a little stroll on the mountainside after their ceremony, before joining their family and friends for cocktail hour and lawn games. Their beautiful reception was held under twinkling lights and lanterns, with thoughtful toasts and lots of fun dancing.

Albion Basin Engagement Session

Brittany & Ryan are so easy-breezy and fun. We had a great time driving to Albion Basin together, and exploring Albion Basin near Alta Ski Resort. It was peak wildflower season (July). Ryan did the cutest thing (sorry Ryan). He brought jokes, written on a piece of paper, which he kept in his pocket. Whenever Brittany and Ryan thought they needed a little laugh for photos, he pulled it out, told a joke, and they just laughed and laughed! What a genius thing, to keep their session fun and lively. 

Can't wait for their Park City Mountain Resort wedding in June, with guests coming from all over the world, who will be riding the Alpine Slide down from the ceremony, it is sure to be a blast.
