Military Wedding

Lauren and Brandon had a Military Wedding and it was really awesome! She wanted a military wedding with her country boy, and that is just what she had! These two have an adorable love story and are clearly meant to be.

Brandon and Lauren started dating before he left on an 11 month deployment. They quickly fell in love and wrote every day, waiting to see each other after a long time apart! She learned that it was hard to have a soldier – but totally worth the wait. She calls Brandon her hero and is so proud of him.

Brandon grew up in Fillmore as a total country boy. Shooting guns, jeep riding, and getting his hands dirty was his jam. Lauren was a city girl but a country girl at heart. They have the best of both worlds in their relationship and are living the dream! I thought it was really sweet how much she adores him and appreciates all that he does.

Their wedding was a party and I loved how they smashed the cake in each other’s faces haha it was hilarious. Also, Lauren’s dress is from Bridal Image and they were married at the Ivy House in Salt Lake City.

Both Lauren, Brandon and their families were so sweet. I really enjoyed getting to know them on a more personal level. I love when I get couples like them, such great people!

Go here for engagements, and here for formals.

Memory Grove Portraits

Ella was so fun to work with for these Memory Grove Portraits! She is the youngest sister of one of my brides and her mom decided she wanted some updated pictures of her. I am so happy she took the time to take these because she rocked it the entire time!

She’s 11 years old and I swear no 11 year old is this gorgeous! At first, she was a little nervous (who isn’t in front of a camera!?) but after a few shots she was honestly a natural. The rompers she wore were really cute on her. Also, she had her older sister get her all dressed up and ready for the shoot. So fun! Taking pictures is always a major boost of confidence. Ella should basically be a model, because she was glowing the whole time!

I thought it was really sweet what her mom said in an Instagram about her – “Ella is thoughtful, loving, creative, endlessly curious, and very intelligent. Her favorite thing to do is solving difficult science problems. She is quite extraordinary!” I totally agree with her mom and think she is such a doll!

Head here to see another fun portrait shoot. 🙂

Layton Wedding

Morgan and Tyler made this Layton Wedding the most perfect day! Morgan is my husband’s cousin and she is the sweetest person. It was a blast to be with family all day and shoot these two. I loved how happy both of them were, they were glowing! They really are a match made in heaven. Just look at their huge smiling faces!

Both Morgan and Tyler had so much fun their entire wedding day from start to finish. They both enjoyed the day and didn’t stress about the little things, which I thought was awesome. Her smile is contagious and his faces are priceless. I loved them!

They were married in the Salt Lake Temple and the reception was at the Chantilly Mansion in Layton. The weather was so great and everything came together really well. I thought it was really awesome to see all of their families come together to celebrate them! They both have big families and were so helpful the entire day.

The flowers were done by the groom’s mother and Morgan’s dress is from The Perfect Dress. The artwork outside at the reception was done by the bride’s step-dad, how cool is that? It was a homegrown wedding and it really was a party all day! I am so happy for the new Brush family!

Provo Library Bridals

Taking these Provo Library Bridals with Alyssa and Trevor was exciting! Some of the locations I had never shot at before this! It’s always fun to do something new. I really like these two, they were so sweet during their engagement shoot awhile back and I was lucky to spend more time with them!

These were shot at the Provo Library and at the Old Provo Courthouse. We met in the morning to make sure we had the right lighting in both locations. When we ended up at the second location, the lights were completely shut off! Apparently the electricity was cut off that day and we wouldn’t be getting any light inside haha what are the odds? Alyssa and Trevor were great and we worked around it. I think we did well with having it be completely dark.

I love watching these two together because they are so in love and you can just tell. The way Trevor looks at Alyssa is so sweet! Her dress was by Sweetheart Bridal and it is beautiful. The detail is very intricate yet simple and I thought it fit her perfectly.

Their wedding was at the gorgeous Payson Temple and I cannot wait to show it off!

Here is a link to see their engagements! 🙂

Twin Senior Session

A Twin Senior Session is something I don’t get to do a lot and it was so much fun! It’s always nice to try something new and since I have only shot twins together one other time, it was a breath of fresh air!

Sammie and Jessie were super sweet and I loved talking with them. They both have beautiful hair and I loved their cute outfits for the shoot. Also, they are a great support system of my family! They get spray tans from my sister-in-law Megan (Glow By Meg) and are big fans of my other sister-in-law Cara Loren. I loved how kind they were about all of my family!

We roamed downtown Salt Lake City and climbed several flights of stairs to get to some wonderful views. They were champs about it and made it really enjoyable. Jessie and Sammie were laughing together a ton and we got some great candid shots that are my favorite!

Congrats on graduating to these two babes, I wish you nothing but the best!!
