Devin and Marilee. Wedding.

What an amazing and incredible winter wedding!! The day before Devin and Marilee's wedding we were hit with a huge snowstorm....this made it beautiful for their wedding pictures the day after. Though the morning commute to the SLC temple was a beast. And it was SOO SOO SOOOOOO cold!!!

Devin and Marilee had their luncheon at the Lion House in SLC and their reception at My Noah's in Pleasant Grove. Audrey from Studio Stems and the crew from Design Elite completely transformed the place to look so amazing!! It truly was a breathtaking wedding planned down to the last detail.

I felt so grateful to shoot this wedding because of all the wonderful people I met in the process. First and foremost are Marilee and her mom. Oh my gosh, I am just in love with these two ladies!! They are the type of people you meet and feel blessed just to know them. And Devin and his family were so amazing. Especially his grandpa. What a special person. He has a true goodness about him that you can feel just by being around him. I left Devin and Mare's wedding thinking about how wonderful both of these families were. And I left with a profound sense of what a blessing families are.

Needless to say this wedding was really meaningful for me because of the special people I met.

Whoa! The cover, featured article, lots of pictures and more....

Okay, so I'm not really one to toot my own horn, but I'm just so excited about all exposure I received in the new issue of Utah Valley Bride. Not only did I get a featured wedding in the mag, but one of my images was chosen for the cover! Whoa! I am way ecstatic about it! And so grateful, and amazed, and happy, and so many things....

I obviously have to thank David and Valerie for being so amazing and having a "magazine worthy" wedding. And of course the beautiful Valerie....who wouldn't put her picture on the cover of a magazine? These two have become dear friends of mine, and I am forever grateful that I was able to get to know them through shooting their awesome wedding.

In addition to David and Valerie's wedding, I also had some images featured from the following weddings:

Ben and Lauren
Paul and Natacha
Lance and Jen
Rhett and Amanda

and a super hot picture of my sister from her bridal session, as well as an interview on "Photography Trends" and "Guestbooks."

It's all so exciting and I couldn't believe it when UV Bride contacted me to share all the good news.

I LOVE UV Bride because it really is a useful magazine for planning a local wedding. Of course their are other amazing wedding mags out there, but UV Bride is for REAL brides planning REAL weddings. And that's what I love about it!

Valerie's picture is the cover of the Spring issue of UV Bride. So it might be a few more weeks until you start seeing it on news stands. But pick up a copy and check it out when you do see it!!

Daniel and Emily

Emily and I go way back. We met at a bridal fair a couple of years ago and it was an instant personality click. I love that she trusts my vision and is game for anything. I love that she will go to the corner ghetto laundry mat by my house and have her picture taken (yes, I live in the Orem ghetto...no, I really do) . I love that when customers at the laundry mat say "You're taking your pictures at a laundry mat????" she responds "It's chic."


I LOVE this one....

After all the serious "vogue poses" they had to let loose for a little nerdiness...
Okay, back to vogueness...
