We love every detail of Bri and Lance’s wedding at Thanksgiving Point in Utah. The pair did an excellent job at creating a gorgeous, classic environment – but they didn’t take themselves too seriously. Gold tables accented with navy sat under cafe lights outside while a fabulous chandelier topped their formal tent. At the same time, guests had their pick of any kind of sweet you can think of and got to take home mini bottles of Coca-Cola and bags of candy. Bri also planned a surprise flash mob for her new husband – a girl after our own hearts!
Krissy and Kyle had an engagement shoot in the Colorado Rockies near Estes Park on the first day of November. For the first part of the shoot, they choose a casual look and included their dog Jillybean! I loved the feel of these “family portraits” and the beauty of the fall colors really complemented their wardrobe choice. For the second part of the shoot, Krissy wore a beautiful green Badgley Mischka dress. It was just stunning in the splendor of nature with the mountain backdrop! Krissy and Kyle are a laid-back couple who really wanted their engagement session to reflect their playful personalities and their love and laughter! Keegan Steele of Steele the Spotlight did a beautiful job with Krissy’s natural, yet glam makeup.

Sam and Kelsie were traveling throughout the Rockies and asked if I would capture them as they were coming through Montana. We decided to venture into a beautiful valley called Blodgett Canyon. After walking a half mile through a dense patch of pines, the valley opens up before you with baby pines, running waters, and vivid cliffs as far as you can see. This shoot was special because the couple allowed the love of their surroundings to help genuinely bring out their love for each other.
