Melinda and Brennon were married in the Timpanogos Temple in December. It was a bit of a chilly day but Melinda was well prepared with a beautiful wedding cloak and a tall groom to keep her warm.
Melinda and Brennon are my favorite type of couple. They were so much in love and just happy to be together that all I had to do was ask them to get close and Brennon took care of the rest.
Grooms that pay the most attention to their bride and could care less about anything else going on around them are the most fun to photograph. Some grooms are pretty stiff and eager to just get on with it that they forget to take in the beauty of their bride and cherish the moment. That probably sounds pretty cheesey to most of you guys but sometimes it really is just a mental decision to enjoy the magic of this special day and all the hard work your bride has done to put it together.
After the Temple photos Melinda and Brennon had a beautiful reception in Alpine at the Alpine Art Center. Throughout the night you could tell this couple were still in their own little world of joy together. It didn’t matter what went wrong or who was late, they were just having a great time together, and I think you can see that in their eyes.
Samantha and Joe just recently booked their wedding with us, and took advantage of our free engagements….Yep, totally free. Just call in and make an appointment, and we’ll shoot your engagements for free. I took these in Little Cottonwood Canyon. It was super cold, but Samantha and Joe somehow managed to avoid turning purple. I think it must have been all of the cuddling they were doing. My favorite image is the last one.
These bridals and groomals were taken recently at the Utah State Capitol. The Capitol building is a great place to shoot bridals, especially in the winter time. We did go outside for a few poses. Jenna and Connor were good sports about braving the cold. They are a fun couple, and we came out with some beautiful images. Here are just a few of the hundreds that I took.
The Meyers family stopped by our studio (9339 S 1300 E in Sandy), and had their family photos done. This group was a lot of fun. I love it when families come by the studio for photos. Here are a few shots we took. My favorite is the long landscape shot. That would look great as a canvas gallery wrap.
We had the opportunity to be featured on Good Things Utah yesterday on ABC channel 4. It was a lot of fun. I hope we didn’t look too nervous. I’d much rather be behind the camera than in front of it. Check out the video and tell us what you think!
Ashley & Mark are getting married in March and they chose to do their engagements out at the Great Salt Lake. I advised them it would probably be a little chilly but they were willing to sacrifice for their photos. This is a tough couple and their sacrifice definitely paid off in getting great photos.
The Great Salt Lake is one of my favorite places to shoot anytime of the year because it is so wide open and has a lot of personality. Getting there can be kind of rough as we found out driving out on a snow packed dirt road. There is also a railroad close by, but watch out, as we found out it is an active railway and you’ll get a speeding locomotive come by now and then!
There was some fresh fallen snow, and I forgot to mention to Ashley she should wear some shoes that would keep her feet warm. Fortunately she has a very chivalrous fiance and he gave her his socks to keep her feet from freezing. Unfortunately I think his feet did freeze.
Despite the cold conditions, with the right lighting and some very warm smiles this happy couple look very happy and in love. They did great and it just proves my saying that they who sacrifice most for the picture end up with the best photos!
