Yiselle and Marty are such an amazing couple! Yieselle is a babe and you can tell that Marty has the biggest crush on her! I know Yiselle because she lived with my family while she served her mission in Cheyenne, Wyoming! I didn't know her when she was living with them, but I know my sisters absolutely adore her. And now after getting to know her a little bit, I can absolutely tell why.
Marty and Yiselle both swiped right for each other! When they met, it wasn't love at first sight, but after hanging out with each other, they started to fall for each other. Then he took her sky diving!!! She said it was on her bucket list and so they decided to go!
When we were talking about different locations to do their session at, Yiselle and Marty brought up the ity bitty town of Eureka, UT! Population: 662. It's a tiny town that has a lot of character and no stop lights. We roamed all around town to find the cutest spots and I watched these two flirt.
These two complete each other. They level each other out and most of all, they are head over heals in love.
Congrats Yiselle and Marty! I wish nothing but a happily ever after for you guys!
The exposed brick and rustic look made the perfect location for this perfect couple. I was able to spend time with both of them individually before their first look and both of them were so excited to see the other. And then they both saw each other, and it was like they could relax again. They were both with each other, and all is well in the world. These two could not stop ogling each other. They both kept saying how lucky they were to get to marry each other. And after knowing Jake and Kylie, I can only say that they are so incredibly lucky that they met and married each other.
The Hafen family has gone through a lot of trials before sweet baby Owen was born. Shanda suffered through several miscarriages between her sweet girl Aria and Owen. It was such a struggle and Shanda was kind enough to share some words with me about her experience with bringing Owen to the world that I would love to share. Her words about her love for her babies here on earth and in heaven are ones of hope. And I loved reading her experience. I hope you will too.
I absolutely love in-home family sessions. Especially when there is a new baby involved. As some of you know, I used to be more of a styled newborn photographer. I would put naked babies in cute and adorable poses, wrap them up in swaddles and put them in baskets. I think the styled newborn photography, is absolutely adorable. It is definitely a work of art. And it's a lot of work. I recently have changed to a more lifestyle type of photography and I am loving it!
The Day family, in my opinion, is one of the cutest families in all of Utah. They are everything a family photographer could ever dream of! Their style, that red hair, those snuggles, and kisses made everything perfect.
This boy and girl who are in love, play the ukulele together. Can it get anymore perfect than that? Pretty sure it cannot! We found a cute log, set them down and I made them serenade me. Even though I asked them to play, they couldn't take their eyes off each other. As they sung and played "Lava" I could tell, that they were so infatuated with each other. And it wasn't going away anytime soon.
Choosing a wedding gift for that special bride and groom in your life can be quite a hassle. Especially when you are in the point in your life when it seems you are going to a wedding every other weekend!
I put together a list of the top wedding gifts that poor, broke and in love couples REALLY want. Because that three blenders and a book about eternal bliss are awesome...but come on...its three blenders...and a book about eternal bliss.
Michelle and Darren have to be one of the cutest, most in love couples I have ever photographed! It is so completely obvious that they have the hots for each other! I would ask them to look at each other and without asking, it always ended up in a kiss. I mean, just look at the way Darrel looks at Michelle. It is priceless.
One of my favorite things to do when I have family sessions, is to get mom and dad away for a second. I love taking engagement like photos of the mom and dad because I think it is so important for parents to be able to look at pictures of them in love. When you are married for awhile, you don't take time to take kissy selfies. It's all about the kids! I know that, because I fall into the same rut. But when I get moms and dads in front of the camera, there is a whole new vibe to the shoot. It is so important for children to see their parents in love!
In home sessions are becoming my favorite! The Moore family and I have been trying to get together the past couple of times that we've been in the same area and it just never seemed to work out! Luckily this past time I was in Cheyenne, we found a time to get together! And then the rain started to pour. Oh man, we were both so upset. Then the idea was brought up to do a a session in their home and we both loved the idea!
Cade and Hannah are both singers. They both attended a choir festival at the University of Wyoming where Hannah was chosen to perform a solo in front of everybody. And that's when Cade started his crush. They didn't officially meet for two years when they were both in the civic choir. They became Facebook friends and he would like her stuff and she thought, "Poor kid...never gonna happen."
