Michelle & Jordan’s Bridal and Formal Sessions at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building and Salt Lake Temple

I’m so grateful that I was given the opportunity to document this amazing couple’s love for one another as they prepared for their Salt Lake wedding. For some couples, sharing a good laugh just comes so easily, and my favorite images are the ones of Michelle cracking up over some secret little comment that Jordan whispered to her while we were shooting. Their wedding images will be coming soon, but here are some of my favorites to get started with. Many thanks to Michelle for sharing her sweet engagement story below:

“Jordan and I met on Valentine’s Day at a baptism for a member of the Young Single Adult Ward back home in Texas. Shortly after, he asked me out on our first date. We had an amazing time and from then on were together pretty much every day after. We would talk, laugh, dance at the park, go hiking, or go out and just enjoy being together. We learned that we were going to be attending the same university in Idaho, among other coincidences between us. Jordan was so sweet, he took me to the Franklin Mountains in El Paso and we shared our first kiss at the very top! On March 20th, he asked me to go on a picnic at a park near my house. The day was perfect and after eating and talking for a while, he turned to me and asked where I saw us in the future. After giving him my response, I asked him the same question, to which his answer was putting a ring on my finger and asking me to marry him. Of course I said yes!  Later, he told me that he knew it was right, so why wait. It was the biggest and best surprise of my life! We have fallen more deeply in love each day.” 2013-09-08_0001.jpg

I had such an amazing time investing in a little “continuing education” for myself recently with Elizabeth Taylor Frandsen Photography. It was a wonderful experience, and one of those rare times when the weather offered up an incredible opportunity for some great images once we moved outside.

Katie & Patrick’s Formals: Bear Lake, Idaho

We returned to the scene of Patrick’s proposal to Katie, and shot their formal session over the course of two different days.  My sweet friend, Faye Crowther, of Faye Crowther Photography, was kind enough to come along as a second shooter, and then graciously warmed us up with hot chocolate and treats at her amazing cabin overlooking the lake.

The weather was absolutely beautiful, and on the second evening at sunset, a thick fog rolled in over the river, and created a moody backdrop for our final images.  I’m so excited for this couple’s Idaho wedding in March.  They have been one of my favorite couple’s ever!  Not every bride would be willing to trudge through snow up to their knees in a wedding dress, in 14 degree weather, with no coat on, but Katie didn’t frown once, and thanks to Patrick and Katie’s good sense of adventure, we ended up with some beautiful formals!

I’ve been revisiting a few images for an upcoming project I’m working on.  I love the moodiness that a little texture can add!
