Bring your daughters to work day! It’s rare that my girls get to come along and help at a shoot, but occasionally when I do commercial work, they get to come home a reflector like they did at this shoot for @modestbymoncheri I feel so blessed to be able to shoot for the designer @barbieannlove. She brings out the best in everyone and it always feels like a big, happy family. She launched her new line today. Check it out if you’re looking for a stunner of a modest gown! @modestbymoncheri
Sometimes I can’t believe I’ve been shooting weddings for 12 years! This photo was from a wedding 7 years ago and I remember it just as well as the one I shot last night. I remember the sound of their voices, Annie’s giggles when Chuck would nuzzle her, how we snuck out at sunset for these portraits so they could soak in the day, the beautiful reception that was waiting for them to return, a million other memories. One photo and everything rushes back in such detail. I love that.
The difference between being right up in that window light vs stepping back a few feet is pretty major! What’s style would you choose? Dark and moody or bright and even?
Little guy not sure how to feel about all this attention 😂 Love photos like this from Phil and Caitlin’s wedding that become more and more priceless over time as the little ones grow up.
The best macadamia crusted fish I’ve ever had in my life at this beautiful Kauai wedding. But my favorite thing about Dan and Portia’s day was that all of their guests fit at those 4 tables there. No acquaintances or parents friends that they barely know. When they raised their glasses and gave their toasts it was the people most dear to them in the world that were looking back at them, shedding tears because they love them wholeheartedly. I love that that’s who they see when they look back at their wedding photos.
Love this soft simple portrait of @haleypiacitelli taken for the wonderful @lasheseverlasting Working with them never feels like work.
I have this lens that will not focus. Aim her at someone’s face and she’s guaranteed to focus on the tree behind them instead. I now own a newer, sharper one, but I still take her out when I want a surprise like in this image from a recent @thankspoint wedding. Her broken parts do their thing, and I get a really soft image. Have you ever had something not work the way it should, but it’s kind of awesome that way?
There’s a lot of hard stuff we all deal with. Heavy things in this world. Weddings are an opportunity to focus on one of the happiest, beautiful parts of life. Take time to celebrate every good thing!! #findhappy
@realkylevannoy and @realmarissavannoy during a family session in #stgeorgeutah Some of the kindest, most gracious people I know.
Sweet little moment between Parker and McKay at their first look session.
