Kylee and Vince met at dental school. He was a student and she was a dental assistant. They went on a blind date and they couldn't get enough of each other! I met them both at another one of my bride's wedding, and Kylee caught the bouquet! I remember watching them giggle and dance with each other all night long. It was pretty obvious they were in love. I gave her my card and told her to let me know when she got engaged. And just a few weeks before she officially got engaged, she did! I was so thrilled!
Kylee knew the proposal was coming, but not 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 on that adventure! 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 that day. And she was right! 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.
I love shooting bridals at the Utah State Capitol. There is so much variety and the perfect spot if you don't want to get a wedding dress dirty before the big day. The Utah State Capitol is full of gorgeous scenery and there is also a beautiful park within walking distance! When we arrived, the weather was storming, the skies were dark and just a tad windy. But these two just took it in hand and embraced it!
My favorite part of this romantic and classy bridal session was the first look. Kylee was so excited to show Vince her wedding dress, she started getting emotional. When he finally turned around and saw her, she immediately went into his arms and he hugged her tight. It was everything a wedding photographer could ever hope for in a first look.
Vince has a Chinese heritage. His mother had gifted Kylee with special gold jewelry which is a Chinese tradition. I loved that Kylee and Vince incorporated this gorgeous tradition into their special day.
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!
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.

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.
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.
