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 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.

This was a fabulous photography session with Ashlee and Brandon.  I love being a Utah engagement photographer!  These images were shot at the orchard in Provo, and we photographed  there just at the peak time!  Beautiful green trees and ripe apples!  More sessions featuring this couple in the next couple of months!

Ashlee and Brandon really allowed their personalities to shine through.  She loves the Harry Potter books, and we worked it into this shoot!

This is Kelli and Tanor.  They contacted me for their Utah engagement photography session last month.  They are getting married in Louisiana in July, so this is the only session we had together.  They are so fun and I wish them the best!  Aren’t they photogenic?  We had a great time on this shoot!  Tanor even answered me when I called him the wrong name 47 times!

This is my younger brother Dan, and his fiance Kimber!  You might recognize Dan from the shoot I had with him and three little girls last summer.  You can see that shoot here.  It was fun to photograph someone I know so well for their Utah engagement photography session!  We shot these at the Orchards in Provo.  We scheduled this shoot when the blossoms would be at their peak and it was gorgeous!  You will be seeing more of these guys in the next few months!  I’ll be shooting their bridals and their wedding day as well!

This is Ashley and Lloyd, and I was excited when they selected Daybreak as the location for their Utah engagement photography session!  Everywhere you turn in Daybreak, there’s another great spot to shoot.  As per the usual this winter and spring, the weather has been unseasonably warm, so we were happy to be shooting in 70 degree weather.

Mandy and Jason had a beautiful engagement session!  It was another beautiful day for Utah engagement photography, so we enjoyed the beautiful weather!  I met Mandy at the Grand America Bridal Show in January, and we instantly clicked.  She reminds me so much of one of my best friends, Katie, that sometimes I want to call her that!

This is such a great couple and Mandy’s ring is to DIE for!  Check it out!

Engagement season is here!  We happened to shoot Katie and Kory’s engagement session on the ONLY day it’s  snowed in Utah in months!  It still turned out to be a beautiful (but cold) day for Utah engagement photography.
