These engagement images in Snow Canyon were taken the day after Christmas. Jack flew into St. George on Christmas say to surprise Michelle with a wedding proposal! How sweet is that? Russell was there to capture Jack down on one knee the night before, and then we climbed up the petrified dunes the next morning to celebrate! Congratulations, Jack and Michelle. #lifesgreatadventures #focusonwhatmatters Now booking weddings for 2017 and 2018!
We believe it's so important to have a wedding album! We may share images on social media right after the event, but what happens to those images several months later? Years later? Are they left on a thumb drive and never looked at? The whole point of getting wedding photos is so you can remember the day, look back, laugh, and see the friends and family you haven't seen in years! An album allows you to do that easily and often. We believe in the importance of albums so much that we include an album at a significant discount in all our 2017 wedding packages over 6 hours. Don't let your memories sit on your computer and be forgotten. Make something physical that you can share and pass down to your kids. #memoriesmatter #focusonwhatmatters
SNEAK PEEK: Fireworks exploded! Costumed performers danced as lions through a blazing mist filling the cul-de-sac. Neighbors and friends all gathered to feed the lions in honor of Vietnamese New Year. They offered treats of money, used to provoke and entice the performers into theatrical feats. Some dancers stood on each other’s shoulders to climb a tree. Others tangoed with the flames in a billow of yellow fog that transformed the suburban street into a fantastical landscape. Every year, the Nguyen family opens their Southern California home to friends and family for this traditional Vietnamese Tet party. Not only is the celebration a theatrical delight, but the family also prepares an inspired feast, including delicious cocktails and homemade pho noodle soup. Traditions are important. We love weddings and celebrations of all forms that bring family together. These events cause us to notice the passage of time, the triumphs and struggles of the past, as well as the promise of new days to come. Our lives are a string of memories and moments, and boy, it’ll be hard to forget this street of yellow smoke and fire! See MORE SNEAK PEEK images on our blog ...

Russell and I made our first Gearhart Photo video! We are making these to share our photography values and talk about why we love capturing our #nerdyatheart couples! This first video honors what it means to truly find someone to belong with. To us, love isn't a fairy-tale in a movie. Love isn't picture-perfect images in a magazine. To us, love is honoring each other's hearts and ambitions. It’s supporting each other's passion and independence. Love is finding someone who allows you to be one-hundred percent yourself -- flaws, weirdness, and all! Find the person who makes you belong and never let them go. Tell us in the comments what you think of our first video!
Father daughter moments always get me (Ingrid) a little misty-eyed … and I know they get Russell emotional too, even if he won’t admit it. There's so much history packed into the moment when dad sees his little girl in her wedding gown for the first time. His eyes always sparkle. He’s so proud. I know we live in a culture that asks our fathers to be strong and avoid vulnerability, but I can tell you, these are the moments that matter most. These are the moments daughters remember. These are the moments when we see our fathers at their absolute best. #focusonwhatmatters
It's Valentine's Day and we want to shout from the rafters that love is love is love is love! Whomever you love, do it with your full heart, deep compassion, joy, and excitement. Be kind. Be passionate. Be silly. Be generous. Love like no one is watching. Love like it is the greatest adventure of your life. #loveislove #valentine
Jump! Show your personality. Stand up and say this is who I am, and who I love! For us, wedding day is silliness, fun, emotion, and memories ... but more importantly it's an expression of who you two are as a couple. Be yourself. Be bold. Be vulnerable. Do it your way. It's your wedding! Now booking weddings for 2017 and 2018. Email us and tell us about your rockin' plans!
The colors from this wedding were mesmerizing. Ingrid (the color lover) adores them. #beyourself
