Eek! This is my sister-in-law who is getting married! We both knew that I would be her Utah engagement photographer looooong before she met Rich! It is so fun to photograph people you love and to see them so happy! Congratulations Angie and Rich!
Rebecca & Bryce | Bridals at the State Capitol Building | Utah Wedding Photographer January 31, 2013Posted by Emily in : Bridals, Wedding , add a comment
When Rebecca and Bryce hired me as their Utah wedding photographer, we decided to take their bridal pictures a few days before their wedding at the Utah State Capitol Building. It is such a beautiful spot for pictures, and let me tell you, their wedding day happened to be on the COLDEST day EVER. I’m not kidding, it was the coldest shoot I’ve ever done! We were SO glad we took the time to do bridals on another day (not that is was much warmer, it was just a few days before their wedding, but the wind was not blowing during their bridals) so we were not stressed about getting all the key bridal shots out in the freezing cold on their wedding day! Their wedding was gorgeous, so stay tuned for their wedding post! You can see their engagement pictures on this blog as well.
Angela & Lance Manti Temple Wedding | Utah Wedding Photographer January 30, 2013Posted by Emily in : Wedding , add a comment
On this snowy winter’s day, let’s look at some warm wedding pictures from Angela and Lance’s wedding this last summer. They got married in the Manti Temple, and I was thrilled when then asked me if I would be their Utah wedding photographer! You can see pictures from their engagements, and bridals on this blog as well. As you can see, it was a BEAUTIFUL day!

Rebecca and Bryce had a GORGEOUS Utah engagement photography session! The fall leaves were at their peak, and the light during their session was so diverse, it was exciting! :) This is such a fun couple, and I can’t wait to post images from their bridal session and wedding day as well! This session was shot in October, in Alpine, Utah at one of my favorite locations.
Sundance Film Festival Street Fashion for StyleList Fashion Blog | Utah Fashion Photographer January 24, 2013Posted by Emily in : Fashion, Published , add a comment
Last week I was contacted by a production company who was looking for a Utah fashion photographer to shoot street fashion at the Sundance Film Festival for the fashion blog, StyleList. I have lived in Utah all my life and never once attended the Sundance Film Festival, so it was fun to check it out! The weather was 20 degrees warmer in Park City than it was at my house (thank you to the weather inversion) and the skies were sunny and blue, so it was gorgeous! I got to do a lot of people watching, and of course, talking to strangers asking if I could photograph them for the StyleList fashion blog. Naturally, most everyone was flattered and excited to participate. The ladies I photographed were from all over the world: London, Australia, New York, Los Angeles, South America, and a few locals from Utah. One of the girls I photographed in the gallery (the one with the pink Louis Vuitton bag) owns a modeling agency and she was on a reality show called “Re-Model.” Also, the girl in the gallery in all black works for ELLE magazine. I met some interesting people! Click the link to see the entire gallery: StyleList
Dave and Coleen | Utah Family Photography January 24, 2013Posted by Emily in : Families , add a comment
Look who I got to see a few months ago! Two of our favorite friends from medical school, Dave and Coleen! They are both practicing family physicians at a clinic in Idaho now, but they were in Utah for a day or so with just enough time to squeeze in a Utah family photography session. It was fun to see them, and Coleen’s mom, Clover, who I missed seeing on Saba (the little island in the Caribbean we all used to live on during medical school) this summer when I photographed the “Royal Wedding.”
Ashlee & Brandon Cinderella Wedding | Utah Bridal Photography January 23, 2013Posted by Emily in : Bridals, Wedding , add a comment
Meet Ashlee and Brandon. We shot their themed, ”Cinderella wedding” Utah bridal photography session last summer at the Manti Temple (which is where they got married a few weeks later). This couple was so much fun! Their wedding was beautiful too, so look for part two of this “Cinderella” wedding in the next day or so!
Shearwater Resort, Saba | Caribbean Photographer January 22, 2013Posted by Emily in : Commercial Work, Destination Weddings , add a comment
This is the beautiful Shearwater Resort on Saba. I was lucky enough to be the Caribbean photographer to capture its beauty!
Six months ago, I photographed the Governor of Saba’s wedding in the Caribbean. It was dubbed the “Royal Wedding” by all the locals (they had over 1000 guests, and 100 of those guests were dignitaries that flew in from all over the world). You can see images from their bridal session, the bride and grooms civil ceremony, and their church wedding. In addition to shooting the wedding, I also photographed for Shearwater Resort on Saba. Shearwater Resort is gorgeous, and has an incredible staff. The food is AMAZING (seriously, my husband and I died over the blood orange gelato the chef made!) and certainly a place you should consider staying at when visiting Saba in the Caribbean!
Briggs Family | Utah Family Photography January 17, 2013Posted by Emily in : Families , add a comment
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting Utah family photography sessions, weddings, engagements, and bridals. It’s been busy around here!
This is my cousin, Sharon, and her family. We shot this on our great grandfather’s property in Midway. It was cold (obviously) but I work fast in cold conditions. :) Aren’t my cousins good looking? :)
