Melinda and Steve

Melinda and Steve got married at the beautiful Tuscany in Salt Lake City. They actually had one of their first dates at The Tuscany so it was the perfect place for their small and intimate wedding. We decided to do their portraits before the ceremony to take advantage of the daylight before the sun set. We had the most beautiful light to work with.

I hope you guys enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them! :) Thanks to Bethany Jackman for recommending me to Melinda and Steve.

A guests flash isn't always a bad thing.

I met Rebecca for the first time when we did her bridal session. I'm so excited to shoot her wedding next month. I love winter weddings! She is such an adorable bride and she looked beautiful in her dress. I haven't really shot at the Library in a long time so I was really looking forward to her bridal shoot. We ended up going outside for a bit since it wasn't too cold.

Watch for her wedding images next month!

Emerson needs a new home!

I just recently photographed a family last month that brought their dog Emerson with them for the photo shoot. Melissa and I are great friends and when she told me that she had to give Emerson away I felt so bad. I want to post a blog about adorable Emerson and hopefully someone will fall in love with her. She is a 9 month old, 5 pound, 1/2 chihuahua 1/2 jack Russell terrier female with updated shots. I have worked with Emerson myself and she is the sweetest thing and poses fabulously for pictures! :)

Please email me at if you're interested in adopting Emerson or for more info.

June Bridals

I did Katie's bridals in June but wanted to "hide" her bridals until after her wedding. July was my busiest month in the summer and I totally forgot to post her pictures! We had the most gorgeous light to work with for her bridals. We even caught a rainbow in the back in some.

And a couple wedding pictures.

Miscellaneous Me

The bio picture of me on my website hadn't been updated for more than a year. I absolutely dread getting my picture taken and put off getting a new and updated photo of me on my site.

While home in Wisconsin in September, my husband and I took a little stroll at Lakeside Park and I brought my camera with me. We sat down on a bench over looking the lake at one point and I thought since the light was so good we'd try doing a portrait of me. I had just got off the Raw Food Diet week and my skin was looking FAB. I ended up being OK with them and put this one up on my site.

Then later changed it to this one. I liked this one because it was vibrant and cheerful.

Every October, Jonathan and I go out and find pretty leaves and take pictures of us. It's funny looking back at all the previous October's and seeing what kind of pictures we took. This year I did a little better than the other October's since I didn't whine as much(like I said I simply hate being in front of the camera).

And one of Jonathan. He totally looks like a "tough guy" here but really he's harmless. He's the sweetest :)

While in Moab for Shelly and Nick's wedding, Jonathan and I visited Arches National Park. We decided(or me actually) since we're moving to Wisconsin next year that it would be a good idea to see the park. I'm soooo glad we did! The weather was perfect for hiking. The hike to the Delicate Arch was rough in one certain spot(anyone who has hiked to it knows which spot I mean) and I was cursing myself for wearing flip flops. We eventually made it to the famous arch and it was pretty darn cool.

It may appear we got lucky and there was no one else at the arch when we got there. Thank you Photoshop! :)

I wanted a fun picture so we had someone take our picture of us jumping under the arch. I still had my 14-24 on my camera so its pretty wide and we're really tiny.

I don't know why but I loved this rock on the way to the Delicate Arch. The good lighting was a bonus.

The balancing rock thingy.

I hope we can go back to the park and see more of it before we leave Utah. I'm very sad about leaving Utah but very happy as well. We don't have an exact date as to when we're moving but we're planning on the spring. We originally planned on next fall but since I've booked so many weddings in Wisconsin next year I will not have the energy to fly back and forth so much. I'm excited to start my business there though and can't wait to work with all my awesome Wisconsin couples.
