wedding day

Sam + TC Mountain Wedding // Solitude Ski Resort // Intimate Utah Mountain Wedding

They met where most people meet now a day. Tinder. And who says it’s not the perfect place to meet the perfect fit? He asked her on a date but she never responded because she went back to her ex at the time. A year later when things didn’t work out with her ex she reached out to TC but he was in a relationship and thought “what the heck? She waits a year to talk to me?” So he didn’t respond. Two months later after he and his girlfriend broke up he was still thinking about this girl he met on tinder. He contacted her and said last time I asked you out you didn’t respond for a year so what will happen this time?

They ended up on their first date to Cafe Sabor and after that couldn’t stop seeing each other. They were hooked. They were the perfect fit.

She wanted surprised when he was going to ask her to marry him, so he set up all these big trips and nice dinners where you would think he would propose but he never did. She started thinking maybe he wasn’t going to when they were out walking by a lake and he finally asked her. It was surely a surprise since it was such an unexpected moment.

Their intimate Mountain wedding was absolutely perfect. The day was overcast, but no rain, the backdrop as they said I do, was so beautiful. The food was delicious, the dancing a blast, and the time together priceless.

Its been so fun to get to know these two. We went out for lunch the other day and it was so fun to catch up! I love my couples!!

Karissa + Weston Wedding day // Salt Lake Temple Wedding // Utah Wedding Photographer

He couldn't wipe the smile off his face. He said it's the greatest day - which is his standard answer to everyday. He says everyday he is alive is a great day. After being in a bad accident and in a coma for 10 days, he takes every moment of life and lives it with happiness and energy. She was content to be by his side and hold his hand and lay her head against him.

Weston was in a bad accident that almost took his life.  He was in a coma for 10 days, lost eyesight in one eye, the sense of smell, and walked away learning never to take life for granted….

Rachel + Kendall Wedding 2018// Grand View Reception Center

They met on their LDS mission and she contacted him seven months after they were home.  They already had a friendship established, so it was easy for them to fall in love with one another. And they are both so sweet and tender with each other.

Logan Utah Temple// Rigby Wedding

There is nothing quite as beautiful as a light snow on a wedding day.  I know for most it means cold, and wet hair, but to me it creates magic.  There is something so dreamy about little snow flakes coming down as you exit the Temple as Husband and Wife.  These two weren't phased by it at all.  They smiled, and laughed, and hugged and kissed.  The cold didn't seem to reach them much at all.  To be cliche...they had their love to keep them warm. :)

Emily was absolutely a perfect bride.  Beautiful and sweet as could be.  And he couldn't take his eyes off of her.  They were both surrounded by such wonderful supportive family, and it was a happy occasion.  I am so excited for their journey together.

Engagements// Shanda Call Photography // Wedding Photographer

Its been a year since we took this sweet couples engagement photos!!  I wanna go back again!  They had me smiling from ear to ear.  They were so tender and sweet together and made every moment of their session so much fun.  They are so full of life and so full of absolute love for one another.  It was freezing cold outside and they still wanted to wade out into the water for photos.  They both have a love for Alaska and rain boots.

Heather + Cameron Wedding// Logan Utah Temple // Backyard Wedding

Cameron and Heather met while performing in a play together. It is clear that theater is a love they both share! This couple is so much fun! They had a beautiful Gatsby themed wedding, complete with the bridesmaids rocking the 1920’s inspired look and pearls. So many details you guys!  SO MANY INCREDIBLE DETAILS!

Heather and Cameron are both so funny and kept each other smiling and laughing all day!

The couple got sealed in the Logan Temple, and then had a gorgeous intimate backyard ceremony where they exchanged rings and words of love in front of all their close family and friends.

Surrounded by close friends and family, they spent the evening dancing, laughing, and having a wonderful time! The location was so beautiful and the air smelled of smores the whole night! This family definitely knows how to have a fun time! The brides sister sang a special song for them for their first dance together and the groom even surprised his bride with a special song he wrote and sang for her!

Congrats to such a perfect couple!

The lush green gardens at Salt Lake City Temple make the dreamiest background for a couple in love. This bright spring day was no exception as these two joined their hearts and families forever.

This was such a gorgeous backyard wedding. It was an intimate group, just their close family and friends under a huge, beautiful willow tree. They had all different types of wooden chairs arranged under the tree and each was so unique that it made the ceremony picture perfect.

The sky at this wedding was incredible! It didn't downpour like it looked like it would, but it wouldn't have mattered if it did, these two wouldn't have noticed. They were so wrapped up in one another and so happy to be married they would have danced in the rain anyways.

Remember my all time favorite first look? The cute groom-to-be was jumping up and down when he saw her because he was so excited? Well these are my favorite pictures from their wedding day. It was a beautiful, happy day and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it!

For instance, this wedding introduced me to THE FUNNIEST grandma I have ever had to privilege to meet. And lucky for me, the bride was just like her! Even now, looking through the pictures and seeing the faces she made and the pranks...

Brittany + Kyle Wedding // Provo City Center Temple // Shanda Call Weddings

This couple finally tied the knot! Kyle is the one that proposed during a poker game, telling Brittany he was "all in." You can read their full story on their engagement post here. They got sealed in the Provo City Center Temple, and obviously it was gorgeous!

Riter Mansion Wedding // Hyekyoung + Justin // Finding love abroad

She is the cutest person I have ever met - it was her wedding day and she kept complimenting ME! Just the kind of sweet bride I love! So thoughtful and kind. She was so excited for me to take all of her photos and smiled so big all morning.
