Marie Antoinette | Melissa Blackburn | Utah Valley Bride01.30.15

marie antoinette_0001_greenapplephotography
I feel incredibly lucky to have been asked to contribute to such an incredible, intricate and beautiful Marie Antoinette themed shoot last year. Melissa Blackburn designed and created each of these exquisite dresses, and the shoot was a testament to her immense talent. I’m so excited to share these photos with you and I will link the other photographers who participated down below. It’s fun to see how everyone interpreted the scenes differently and in their own unique way. An amazing shout-out to Tinge Floral and Sweet Tooth Fairy for their hard work and beautiful florals and sweets, as well as all the other vendors listed below. And if you want to see more, Mikki Platt’s images of the editorial are currently in Utah Valley Bride! Now let’s all eat some cake. marie antoinette_0002_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0003_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0004_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0005_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0006_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0007_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0008_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0009_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0010_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0011_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0012_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0013_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0014_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0015_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0016_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0017_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0018_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0019_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0020_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0021_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0022_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0023_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0024_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0025_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0026_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0027_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0028_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0029_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0030_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0031_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0032_greenapplephotography marie antoinette_0033_greenapplephotography

Sarah is a beauty, through and through, and as my sweet Lucy would say, she looks like a Princess. If you can believe it, these were taken in December…in 50 degree weather. I couldn’t have asked for a more magical afternoon. Thank you Sarah!

Beautiful dress custom made by Penelope’s and lovely flowers by Amy Curtis!

Elyse and David Sundance Wedding ~ Published Utah Bride and Groom01.05.15

greenapple_sundance_0001I’ve been waiting to share this wedding for over a year, and the day is finally here! Elyse and David’s incredibly thoughtful and beautiful wedding is published in Utah Bride and Groom! I couldn’t think of a prettier home for a wedding that was completely heartfelt.

This wedding means a lot to me for many reasons. I watched Elyse grow up. I moved into her neighborhood when I was a newlywed myself and ended up being her Church teacher. And I always loved Elyse. She was someone who had a vision for her life, knew what she wanted, had a wicked sense of humor and the warmest heart. We kept in touch over the years, and she met the perfect man in David. They are artists and teachers, living in New York City. Their love story is a special one, one of friendship, support and love in good times and the not so good times. They are both articulate, kind, generous, creative, and adventurous. Elyse and David’s vision was to combine Elyse’s love of the Utah mountains, with their home in New York City, so rustic big city? The wedding was a family affair of contributing talents, from the Chuppa,  invitations by Elyse’s sister, Hannah, and beautiful acoustic music from a close friend.  David drew scenes of New York on the table cards and serenaded Elyse. Their vows brought me to tears, their speeches made me laugh (and mad libs!) and I truly felt that I was witnessing two soul mates starting their journey together.

Congratulations Elyse and David! And Thank you Val at Utah Bride and Groom for the lovely feature in the new magazine!

Mikki and Braydon ~ Utah Family Session01.02.15

mikki_GreenApple_0001

It’s the new year, and for some reason this post is all tied into life, and present-ness, moments, and you know, all THE THINGS that I/we want to be and feel and do. This post is a little bit about photo locations gone a bust, but more about baby kisses, and messy hair, and the imperfectly perfect moments that are gone before you know it. Lucky us, though, because there are a million more we get to experience. Life seems to be so meta lately, and anticipating the perfect Instagram image, and missing the real life happening behind it (guilty.) And so, when I look at these pictures I’m filled with happiness that an opportunity was not wasted to capture life–wonderful, crazy, spinning, running, joyous, stressful, incredibly real life. And although I’m not making any official resolutions this year, I guess I kind of am. Because I want to be experiencing my life in real time and not as I scroll through a social media feed (Oh, and more sleep! Always more sleep.)

So, Thank you, Mikki, Braydon, and littles, for letting me into your life and document this bit of time for you. You are amazing!

Happy New Year’s!

 Kim and Alex, together keep the world spinning on. It may be in part to their fabulous hair, but really, it has everything to do with the way Kim makes Alex laugh, the way Alex looks at her with absolute adoration, and together, their perfect happiness.

Lizzy and Chase | Texas Prairie Wedding09.29.14

greenapplephotography_0001_texasprairiewedding

When a Michigan girl meets a California boy in Utah, true love happens. When they get married in Texas, it turns into pure magic.

Thank you, thank you Lizzy for having me fly all the way out to be a part of your beautiful, intimate wedding. There might have been a little rain (so much rain!) at the Ceremony, but that didn’t stop a single thing. Snippet and Ink ran a lovely feature on these two today, and check them out for more of the amazing details, and heart and soul Lizzy poured into her wedding.

XOXO ~ Lindsey

Abandoned Mansion | Film Editorial09.18.14

“Love her, love her, love her! If she favours you, love her. If she wounds you, love her. If she tears your heart to pieces – and as it gets older and stronger, it will tear deeper – love her, love her, love her!” -Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

greenapplephotography_0001_abandoned

I’ve always loved the darker side of things. Wuthering Heights was the first book that I really remember inhaling (anyone else read like that?) I like stormy days, and songs in minor, wandering souls, and I’ve been a lover of fairy tales as long as I can remember. Early spring tends to bring this side out of me, and Allison, of La Feté, and I were inspired by the darker side of fairy tales, with a little Great Expectation mixed in. We wanted a shoot that was haunting, emotive, and follows the journey of a girl, neglected in her wedding finery, waiting for her lost love.

There are so many stories I want to tell about this shoot, which we secretly dubbed, haunted mansion. From my assistant falling into a rotting pool of water, flowers three days late, some blood and near fainting, there was definite a bit of misadventure going on as well. But that is what makes what we do such a great adventure. Read below for all the amazing contributors, who lent their talents and gifts to our labor of love!

If you’d like to see, Abandoned Mansion was featured on Magnolia Rouge! Eek! Also, I wanted to send a lot of love to Allison, La Feté. She has been an amazing collaborator, friend, artist and soul sister. There was a lot going on during this shoot, and she still created the most beautiful world. Thank you Allison!
