Brooke & Lane ~ Utah Wedding Photographer04.24.16

Bridal photography has a special place in my heart. There’s something beautiful about being in this space with two people deeply in love, dressed in the clothes chosen as a commitment. Life won’t always be this fancy. Maybe it will never be this fancy again. Life will be painting your new apartment, stains on your shorts, or kids, and spit-up on your shirt. There will be packing for your first big move, dust covering everything, and honestly, that’s the kind or realness that makes up a full life. But for right now, cherish this fancy, beautiful, just the two of us times, with gowns, and flowers, and all the promise of tomorrow. It’s the foundation of the very, very, very beginning. One day your grandchildren will look at these pictures, as I looked at mine, and marvel at your newness and how lovely you looked. Because what they are really marveling at is two people before they ever knew them, your freshness and your promise.
These are magic days!

Baby Three ~ 8 weeks, 19 weeks, 37 weeks03.18.16

Utah Wedding Photographer

Baby girl, right now you are 39.5 weeks, and we are preparing for your arrival any day. Your dad is making cookies for the nurses, my hospital bag is packed and re-packed. My energy is like a million bouncy balls flung off a high rise, bounding in a million directions. I don’t know what to focus on (the house is clean, the baby clothes washed, gifts from all who love you, carefully tucked into my bag.) To say you were a surprise doesn’t even begin to describe the wonder of you. From the moment I first had an inkling you were even a possibility, my heart hasn’t stopped exploding. To understand all of my complicated emotions would take years to unravel. The years of wanting, the years of trying, the years of growing your siblings under sterile conditions, in Dr.’s offices. And here you came, carefree and easy, lightning in the middle of summer day. I’ve had a hard time believing in you, but you constantly proved to me that you are here, and a force all your own. Now we are days, hours, heart beats from meeting you, and I’ve barely registered that you are my last baby. The last one to claim occupancy in the physical space below my heart. You are the beginning of all my lasts. I’ve vowed to be present in this final stretch. To not be scared. To embrace what my body, so foreign and unyielding for so many years, was capable of.

We all love you and dream of you. I watch you move, a constellation in your own orbit. I hear your heartbeat, steady and comforting. Your siblings, who talk to you every day, Lucy, whispering she dreamt of you and your brother, who named you. Your Father magically soothing all the crazy that becomes me, when combined with you. We love you with all of our beings, baby girl.

Please come soon.

XOXO

Mom

My sunshine friend Sarah Knight, documented three stages of my pregnancy with the now discontinued Fujifilm FP-3000B. These instant photos are so fleetingly beautiful. A moment, a smile, a growing belly, a spontaneous tackle hug, never to revisited except in my heart and these tangible witnesses. I’m forever grateful Sarah!

Katelin and Tony ~ Cliffrose Lodge Wedding02.24.16

The mountains are calling, and I must go ~ John Muir

Here is a peak and Katelin and Tony’s beautiful wedding in the shadow of Zion National Park. Zion always makes my heart sing, and I was honored to share in this beautiful, epic, absolutely amazing day at the Cliffrose Lodge in Springdale, Utah. From thoughtful details (local agate and stone, prickly pear cocktails, succulents and custom invitations,) to a sweet Ceremony and killer dance party, it was a perfect day! Thank you so much for having me out to share with you two!

Maddy and Garrett ~ Utah Mountain Bridals02.17.16

Utah Wedding Photographer

What’s better than putting your wedding dress on once? Putting it on a second time! Maddy and Garrett had such a lovely wedding day, we decided to head out on a “slightly” warmer Autumn afternoon, and do a post-wedding and bridal session in the Utah mountains. There is probably nothing better than the Utah Mountains in the Autumn. Maaaaaybe salted chocolate. I’m so lucky to have spent this happy afternoon with Maddy and Garrett, documenting their almost-year anniversary. What a sweet way to honor their happiness.
