Sarah and Ross preview

We are moving stuff into our truck as I type this(or just my husband, teehee!) but thought I'd take a break and post a preview of Ross and Sarah from their wedding that took place yesterday. We'll be on the road for awhile and didn't want to make them wait a long time to see a photo. I love this one!

Now it's time to say goodbye

I sat in my living room yesterday staring at all the boxes we have packed already. It is a royal mess in our apartment right now. I can't believe that a week from now we'll be gone.

I love that I'm going back to my home state but Utah has definitely grown on me. How could you not love the weather, the mountains, and the fact that Utah has the highest level of well-being in America? So many people I know say bad things about Utah and cannot wait to move out. I can understand their feelings. But I consider myself super duper lucky that I had a chance to live here for awhile...for so many reasons.

I am especially grateful to all of the Utah photographers. I don't think the brides here have a clue how lucky they are to have all of you to choose from. There are so many of you that are amazing. I don't think I'd be where I am today with my business without all the talent that surrounded me for years. It really pushed me to do better. I've had the privilege of meeting some of you and some I haven't met but still hope to someday. You all create beautiful art and so many of you have inspired me. Thank you.

I'd like to thank all my Utah clients(and any clients that had me travel from Utah to their wedding). I've learned so much from all of you and I want to thank you for trusting me to document your wedding. I've met some truly fabulous people and I'm so thrilled that I'm good friends with a lot of you now.

So many Wisconsin photographers have contacted me to welcome me and my business. I find that amazing. Thank you so very much for your kind emails. It's very refreshing to know that there are lots of cool and fabulous photographers in Wisconsin that would love to work with me. I look forward to meeting you all :)

Thank you to all of you who sent me emails, cards, and gifts wishing me well on my move to Wisconsin. You have no idea how much that means to me.

Oh, and one more thing. Any Utah brides that are interested in booking me after I move, please contact me anyway for a killer deal on travel costs. I'd love to come back here whenever I get a chance :)

Well, time to get ready to journey to the land of cheese, football, and brats. I'm excited! Bye bye!

I'll miss this

I love the symbolism in walking down these stairs from the Temple. It's like saying "we did it!" while they walk outside to the world as a married couple for the first time. The regular door they come out of isn't as beautiful so I always take these shots.

Jeanette is actually a friend of mine. We met through Brit, one of my past brides. I was elated that she chose me to photograph her wedding! She is such a gem and has a great bridal style going for her. Today was warm but very windy outside. The wind added a little drama to some photos but for the most part it was annoying! It dyed down a bit a little later and the sun broke through the clouds. We got some absolutely beautiful shots with the sunset. We took some pictures with Jeanette's bike for some fun. LOVE that bike!

One thing I'll miss most about Utah weddings is the bridals. Wisconsin brides don't very much like the idea of bridal sessions. I hope to change that.

I cannot wait for Jeanette's wedding in May! That means I get to come back here :)

This is awesome

I found this on a post from the Create Digital Music blog:

"In case you haven’t already seen this making its rounds, an epic collection of instructional and jazzy video clips get mushed together into a colossal, remixed funk band. What’s lovely about this is that the results don’t sound like a mash up: they sound like these clips somehow sprang to life and joined a soul band, playing live. And then the Theremin arrives.

You watch one video. And then you find there are seven more. ThruYou is a complete YouTube video album, complete with glitched bits of interface artifacts around. And according to the creator, nothing here is faked; that is, “what you see is what you hear.”

Here is a link to all the songs(I like 1 and 3 the best). This is one of the coolest things I've found on the internet in a long time. What an amazing artist to be able to craft something coherent and awesome from all the junk that is on You Tube. Sweet.

We lucked out big time for Sarah's bridals. It was supposed to snow with overcast but it was bright and sunny all day long. I heart sun!
