Whether it’s sitting on the floor with paper plates and yoga pants on a Tuesday night after helping a friend move, or it’s a gorgeous, candlelit dinner sharing toasts and memories with your closest to celebrate your wedding, sitting down with those you love is time very well spent. 🧡 Are you going to see anyone you love this Thanksgiving week? Or wish you were? Tag them and let them know they mean the 🌎 to you.
This man. Goodness. ❤️ Sweetheart, you’ve proven to me that the romance I always dreamed of, but that people told me didn’t exist, is actually real. And in these past 10 months, you’ve given me enough love to last lifetimes. The thought of walking hand in hand with you for the rest of our lives is the happiest thing I can imagine. You are truly the best friend I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to marry you.
This is me dreaming about #offcameraflash Just kidding, it’s Haley looking beautiful on the floor of the @mccunemansion but this IS how peacefully I sleep before weddings. 11 years ago I used to stay up at night, stressing because I didn’t have my flash game down and I dreaded receptions so much. This was the most important day of someone’s life and the feeling that I might miss a moment because of my flash was NOT OKAY. It was a terrible feeling. But at the time I didn’t know what to do about it. Thank goodness I figured it out. Now receptions are truly, 100% my favorite part of a wedding. I have so much fun letting loose with my couples and being completely sure that no matter what lighting situation I’m put in, I got it, easily. If you don’t feel this way, please come join me LIVE, this Monday the 10th at noon and let’s talk about flash!
In April of 2017, I wrote this... Goal: Visit Europe for the first time Deadline: 18 months That deadline is coming up in October and by some miracle the opportunity recently presented itself. I’m headed to Paris mid October. Just in time to keep my word to myself. My sweetheart, my daughters, and my momma are all coming with me. We are very excited around here! If I wouldn’t have been clear and specific with my goal, I know that I wouldn’t be going so soon. Thankful for this life and the knowledge that we can make it what we choose. Do you agree that when you have a clearly defined goal, you are more likely to make it happen?
Just started an Instagram account to share all of my favorite Utah photo locations. If you’re in Utah or ever plan to be (you really should, it’s breathtaking) come follow along and maybe we’ll run into each other at one of these pretty places. @locationsutah
My soul yearned for this shoot. And now that it’s over, I want to say that my craving to shoot something dark and romantic has been satisfied, but I don’t think it ever will be. I’m 11 years in to my photography journey and my deep desire to find a window in a dark room and explore how the light curves around and falls off of my subjects in stronger than ever.
Photographing feminine beauty in window light will never get old to me.

Shots of the love of my life from our first date. Heaven help me. He’s a keeper. Mike came and assisted me at a few shoots this month and was hands down the best assistant I’ve ever had. Now I’m not sure how I will be able to shoot without him ever again!
Downtown Salt Lake City with beautiful Sara just a few weeks before her wedding. Forever thankful to be able to spend summer nights outdoors, chatting about wedding plans, making new friends and showing them how dang beautiful they are.
