Featured in Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom Magazine!

It is truly an honor to have Kate and Dan’s Park City, Utah destination wedding featured in Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom Magazine. A big “thank you” to Donna Urban Events, Branches Floral, Culinary Crafts, the behind-the-scenes vendors, and the friends and family who helped make it all possible. It was a visual treat to photograph. Most importantly, a wedding is nothing without love between a couple. Kate and Dan share true love—you can see it in the way they look at each other. You can see more photos of their mountain ranch wedding, on my website, here.

Their wedding is also being featured on Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom’s blog, today! You can see that HERE. Whatcha’ waiting for? Go now!

Woodland Wedding Inspiration Window at Lily & Iris Bridesmaids

Lily & Iris Bridesmaids shop asked me to create a vignette of wedding ideas for one of their inspiration windows. These windows provide wedding inspiration to the brides who go into Lily& Iris. What I love about Lily & Iris, is that it is so tasteful, organized, and easy to shop. Their buyers wade through all the fluff to get to the good stuff, bringing only the best bridesmaid dress designers into their shop. No searching through a million not-so-cute dresses to get to what you want. Just elegant, refined style. For my window, I was asked to choose a bridesmaid dress to build around. I chose a long, forest green chiffon number that I think would flatter any woman. A v-neck design is flattering on everyone. Not to mention, it was perfect for the ideas I had in mind.

The inspiration for my…you guessed it…inspiration window, comes from where I grew up. I grew up in Northern California, near Lake Tahoe, which you can read more about, HERE. I’ve always been drawn to organic style with a touch of glamor. I combined moss, ferns, leaves, feathers, and accents of metallic gold to create my lush and elegant, but down-to-earth look. I’m a mom to two young kids, so it was refreshing and exciting to create something beautiful with my hands (besides photos, of course).

Thank you, Lily & Iris, for the opportunity to create this for your shop. I had fun!

Please excuse the iPhone photos. This mama just didn’t get the time to go back with the big camera.

Danielle & Jay-Engagement Photos in Downtown Salt Lake City

Danielle and Jay wanted engagement photos that highlighted their unique personalities. As soon as I met Danielle and Jay, I knew how I wanted to photograph them; I saw black and white, minimal, and fun. I just didn’t know just how much fun they would bring to their session! I feel like we all came together to create photos that are unique to them.

May I also say that I love their outfits. They are composed, yet casual. Unfussy and real.

They’re getting married at the Utah Museum of Fine Art and I’m pretty excited about that.

We had a lovely morning engagement photo session in Millcreek Canyon in Salt Lake City, Utah. It’s one of my favorite places…and so close to my home! Looking forward to your wedding day at the Salt Lake LDS Temple and Red Butte Garden, Erin and Christopher!
