This love story is one for the books! It is seriously so cute! Utah Lake was so good to us for their engagement session! And I just want to point out that Heather is a princess. She really is! She performs as a disney princess on the weekends! You look at how she looks at Taylor and you can tell that she has found her prince!
Heather and Taylor met a couple of years ago at BYU. They were in the same singles ward and would hang out with each other and their roommates, but didn't really have any interest in each other. By the end of the semester, they began to crush on each other. Or as Heather would put it, he had been wooed! She even told him, that someday she would probably marry someone like him.
He left for his mission and she went to school and then she decided that she was supposed to go on a mission as well. She was called to the same mission where he grew up! She was able to spend time with his family and cousins! All the time that they were on their missions, they stayed in touch. Taylor got home from his mission in May and Heather got home from hers in August. They went on their first date in September, and they saw each other every single day. They became the real deal in October.
Over the holidays they met each other's families and in December Taylor made the decision that this was the real deal and it was time to make things official. On February 4th, he asked her to marry him on the same bench at the Provo Temple where she opened her mission call. And now they are getting sealed in Washington DC at the end of May!
I am so happy that she said yes! Here's to their happily ever after!
If you didn't know, Wyoming is GORGEOUS! Sometimes you have to look for it. But it is there! Hannah and my mom scouted out this area about a week before I went up there to take Hannah and Cade's Bridal photos. When we got there, I could not believe how gorgeous this place was! The purple flowers and the pond, plus that amazing golden sunlight turned this session into one of my favorite bridals of all time.
I came back to Cheyenne often because I had family there. When I told them I was coming to town, they suggested we go to the Rocky Mountain National Park which was about 2 hours away in Colorado. And let me tell you, it was worth every mile! When we arrived, it was misty and dark. It almost seemed like rain. After we left the town of Estes Park and then headed to the park, we immediately saw Elk! It was amazing. We drove finding the perfect spots for their engagement session. And oh boy we did! Traveling around Rocky Mountain National Park, we saw the most gorgeous scenes full of pine trees and beautiful stormy skies.
At the beginning of the summer, I participated in the most beautiful, gorgeous, unique and amazing styled shoot put on by the talented company Sage and Thistle Events. I have known Tresa Roberts for a few years through the Rising Tide Society Tuesday's Together group in Provo, UT. When I heard that Sage and Thistle was putting this massive styled shoot together, I just knew I had to be a part of it. It was the week before we moved into our new house, so it was a little chaotic, but it was worth every single moment!
There are several reasons why you should have a first look/bridal session. Here are three reasons to convince you!
Meet one of the best and newest families around! This is no ordinary family. If you look at that hot looking couple, at this time, they were engaged and getting ready to blend their two families together. Mandy and Brandon are incredible parents! I love that they wanted to include their kids in their engagement photos! And we had an absolute blast!
Hi! I'm Amber Prusse. I'm a Wyoming girl who was planted and then blossomed in the great state of Utah when I married a Utah boy. I'm mostly known for my love of Harry Potter, Sodalicious and being a boy mom. Although I am surrounded by mud and dinosaur loving boys at home, there is nothing I love more than the beauty of capturing beautiful milestones in life. I'm a wedding and family photographer, who believes in creating and photographing beautiful moments that you and your family will cherish for years to come. I have served over a hundred families and brides. I love becoming best friends with grandmas during your wedding and making the silliest faces to make little people smile.
Luke and Lexi are one of my favorite couples. These beautiful people are some of the kindest, sweetest and most generous people I have ever met. And boy are they in love!!! They call each other their best friends. Luke cares for Lexi like she is the last person on earth. And they will soon be celebrating their one year anniversary!
Kylee knew the proposal was coming, but now sure when it was going to happen. They had picked out the ring and so it was happening soon! One day, they went on a hike to Stewart Falls. She was sure it was going to happen then! But it was just too icy and cold. So they had to turn back. As they were driving back, she started crying because she was sure it was going to happen then. Vince then pulled over, found a beautiful spot, and he proposed. He was planning on proposing all along but the ice ruined it! But their proposal story makes their story even more romantic.
There was a buzz in the air, waiting for Mr. and Mrs. Osborn to come out of the temple. Sisters and cousins, aunts and uncles were all so happy for these two. There were little nephews dancing around making everyone's heart light. And when they finally came out, there was nothing but smiles and joy on all sides!
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.
