Styled Elopement Photography Session | Orange County Wedding Photographer

So I realized I never blogged this styled elopement photography session and and I'm kicking myself because this shoot was EVERYTHING! My sister-in-law and fellow rockstar photographer Christy Miller and I started putting the details for this shoot together before I even got to CA (a Christmas vacay trip to Orange County). When we were hashing out details for this elopement inspired session, one of my favorite OC models Peyton Elroy came to mind. I'm so glad she could be apart of this shoot! We asked if she had a man and if he'd come along... hahaha well she does! His name is Tyler and as you'll see he has an INSANE head of hair! When Christy, our HMUA Heather and I saw his mane for the first time we FREAKED. Like I would KILL for hair like that. I'm only a little jealous. All of the details for this shoot fell together perfectly. Heather Nitta rocked hair and makeup for Peyton and Tyler (KILLER man bun though), Christy not only shot alongside me for this shoot but she put florals together and totally nailed it. And of course Peyton and Tyler were their good looking and totally in love selves. We all met up at Bolsa Chica State Beach and bore the chilly weather for this shoot and it was SO worth it. The gorgeous golden hour light and ocean breeze added the movement and relaxed feel we had envisioned. It couldn't have been more perfect. Scroll through the gallery to see my fave snaps from this shoot!

Provo City Center Temple Wedding | Krystal + Eduardo

 

You guys... I'm a horrible blogger! I literally haven't blogged since I blogged this sweet couple's engagement session. But, what's a better way than to come back with their wedding! My sweet couple Krystal and Eduardo are married! They sealed the deal for time and all eternity in the Provo City Center Temple. I feel so blessed that I got to be a part of their special day. We started with their first look. Eduardo's reaction to seeing Krystal in her dress for the first time was priceless. It was SO hard to hold back tears while capturing this on camera. One of the sweetest things I've ever witnessed throughout my career. We took some time before their sealing to get some bridal shots around temple grounds so they could relax and have fun before the craziness! Then, I waited with their family and friends for them to exit the temple as husband and wife for the first time. Their families are just as kind and welcoming as they are. Also, Krystal and Eduardo met on their mission, so their mission president and his wife, and lots of their companions were their to show their love and support, how special is that?? After they came out of the temple, we took photos of all of their family and friends. Everyone was so excited for them. This sweet couple is loved and cared for by so many amazing people, it was so great to see. After group photos, we took a few moments to get some last of the staple temple ground photos. The Provo City Center Temple is such a beautiful symbol of the commitment Krystal and Eduardo have made to each other for eternity, so you really can't get enough photos of it :) I feel so lucky I got to capture this amazing day for Krystal and Eduardo! Congratulations guys <3

Great Salt Lake Engagement Session | Utah Wedding Photographer

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share this amazing session! I continue to be so amazed by God's creations, especially in Utah! This Great Salt Lake Engagement session is definitely one of my faaaaaves. Technically, this was two sessions because we came back another day because some people decided they wanted to party at Saltair.... hahaha, but I'm not mad. More time with this fun couple! I had so much fun getting to know Krystal and Eduardo. Krystal is one of the sweetest human beings I ever met. She immediately greeted me with the biggest hug and I just love people that like that that are so kind and loving, and Eduardo is the perfect kind, sweet and funny match to Krystal. When I was around them, I didn't feel like I was taking pictures, it totally felt like we were just hanging out! Their energy and lovebird vibes made these photos even more awesome. You can see how in love they are in these pictures for sure :) So excited for these two to tie the knot next year! ♥

Hi everyone, back again with another blog post with another cute couple! I met up with my new friends Kaitlyn and Ben on Brigham Young University campus for their session... I had no idea a university campus could be this gorgeous! Like are you for real?? That light and fall colors are killing meeeee. 

Kaitlyn and Ben were some of the first people we met when we moved to Utah, once Kaitlyn and I found out we were both photographers, we clicked! They are such a fun couple and they are such great friends! I had soooo much fun taking these pictures for them, thanks Kaitlyn and Ben for being so insanely perfect in front of my camera! ♥
