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.


Camille, Tibble Fork Bridals, Utah Wedding Photographer

Camille’s bridals….wow! I don’t often shoot in Utah County, but when Camille suggested photographing her bridals in Tibble Fork up American Fork canyon, I could not resist. It really is breathtaking there and you put Camille in with the Tibble Fork scenery and it’s magic.

It was a stormy day and we weren’t sure if it was going to rain–it did. Camille toughed out a few down pours and sprinkles, but the moody skies were gorgeous, especially the black and white pictures. If you look closely in some of the pictures, you can see the rain drops. Her flowers were amazing and went perfectly with the mountains, pines and blue water. (I’ll talk with Camille and post the flower source soon.)
