People say it’s good luck when it rains on your wedding day. When it rained on my wedding day (June 28th, the driest day of the year) I was convinced that it was just something they say to calm people down. Alyssa and David needed no calming. They just embraced the rain and ended up having a beautiful wedding. It probably helps that Alyssa is from Seattle, where it’s illegal to complain about the rain.

I get asked a lot if I travel for weddings or other photo shoots. The answer is YES. Not only do I do it, but I really enjoy it. I feel that when I travel I tap into a new vein of creativity.
When Alyssa asked me to come out to her home in Seattle, Washington to take her engagement photos, we had a nice discussion about why the PNW (Pacific North West) is so magical, and it really is.
As you go through these images you’ll see why I love it so much.
If you live in this area or are just interested in shooting there, please give me a call!
A special thanks to the owner of the canoe who wasn’t home at the time. We would have asked nicely to borrow it had you been around.
No seriously though. Call me 801-792-9944.
I really do have the greatest job. I get to spend the day outside with awesome people who become my good friends and help them remember one of the best days of their lives.

In my opinion, this is the way to do a maternity session. Hike up a steep trail to get to the top of a canyon. If anyone is tough enough to do this it’s you, Anne. Thank you Jessica for following us up and doing your magic with Makeup and Hair.
If you are up for an adventure photo session, whether it be a maternity, portrait, fashion, or whatever, give me a call.
I’m so excited to finally share this awesome mountain bridal inspiration shoot. And thanks to Magnolia Rouge for featuring on their blog.
I think Utah’s rocky mountains made a beautiful backdrop to pull together the many stunning elements to this styled shoot. I hope to do more of these types of shoots that help feature the amazing talent and landscapes we have here in Utah.
Major thanks to these amazing vendors:
