Heart melted…

September and October are my busiest months, but I couldn’t help but take a quick break while processing and share this sweet picture. This is what happens when you give a toddler some candy and have brother snuggle up to her! Magic of course!

Pete & Kendra: Sundance Resort, Utah Wedding Photographer

Pete & Kendra’s wedding….so many details, so many moments, so much fun. Pete and Kendra wanted to have an old Hollywood theme to their wedding and what better venue than Sundance? Their wedding planner, Ashley with Attention 2 Detail Events, did an amazing job at creating the wedding of their dreams. From the director chairs, the vintage cameras, the colorful flowers, popcorn and candy favors…pretty cool!

The day started with Pete and Kendra getting ready in separate cottages up at Sundance. Kendra had her hair and makeup done while her bridesmaid’s got ready and watched Kendra get glamourous. Pete had his cottage all to himself and he relaxed until ceremony time drew nearer. I sprinted over to him to record a few of his getting ready shots. The cottages at Sundance, not too shabby and right outside the door is gorgeous, beautiful nature! I took Pete outside for some quick pictures and then it was time for the ceremony.

The Sundance ceremony was held under a white tent with green trees surrounding it. I loved recording Pete’s expression of Kendra walking towards him down the aisle. It was pretty cute when Kendra would look over at him during the ceremony, revealing her dimples. Beautiful ceremony!

The reception was just beautiful and the rest of the night was filled with dancing and fun, as you can see from the pictures. The band was amazing at keeping everyone entertained until it was time to head off to the cottages from some shut eye. What a day and what a wedding!

Guy & Jacque: Utah Destination Wedding Photographer

I was so happy when Guy contacted to express interest in having me shoot his Utah destination Wedding. Guy and Jacque are from back east, but they spend a lot of time vacationing in Park City during the winters. When it came time for the long-time loves to decide on a place to get married, Utah quickly rose to the top of their list.

They brought in their close friends and family and did things their way, from Jacque’s non-traditional, casual wedding gown to Guy’s royal blue suit. They rented a house in Park City, where they had a pretty relaxed wedding morning, getting all put together for their ceremony. The ceremony was held at Snowbird. Wow, talk about scenic!

After the ceremony they welcomed their friends and family back to the house they were staying at and treated them to a dinner they had a chef and crew create for them. I love small, intimate weddings where couples don’t play by the “rules” and do things their own way.

Alyssa & Austin: Utah Mountain Formals, Utah Wedding Photographer

Alyssa and Austin wanted to have a few “first look” pictures taken right before their formal session. It’s always fun for me to photograph these sessions for couples. It’s the first time they get to see each other in their wedding best and Alyssa and Austin couldn’t have asked for a better location or evening to record this. We had Austin stand by himself with his back turned while Alyssa got ready to walk towards him. Austin was in awe as he saw his bride for the first time in her dress. Swoon…

The rest of the session was so beautiful. Utah really has some amazing places and you put a couple in love in the scenery, it’s magic!

McCall & Matt: Salt Lake Temple and Memory Grove Formals, Utah Wedding Photographer

McCall and Matt are a very smart couple. They were getting married at the Salt Lake Temple in the middle of summer, during the middle of the day. Well, here’s the smart part, they decided to shoot their Salt Lake Temple pictures before the wedding and after the sun had cooled down a bit. Suits and long dresses can make a couple pass out! It was fun to see them get excited for their wedding day by just being on the temple grounds. What a sweet and fun couple to photograph. I’ll have their rustic wedding reception in another post.
