As much as Emily and David were meant to be…I think me and Emily were meant to be. I just LOVE this girl and we have so many of the same loves. We spent most of their engagement session talking about her upcoming trip to Disneyland Paris…yep, that’s right people there is a Disneyland in Paris! I was so excited for her. What an amazing trip!

But back to engagements…haha…aside from so many things to chat about, I just love these two. They both have this quiet elegance about them. They are so sweet and caring and thoughtful to each other. To get those really great moments I had to stand back, and just let them be together. Let them warm up and let their adorable relationship just come out naturally. And it was so fun to just hang out with them and wander around this gorgeous spot and let them show off their love. I am so excited with how everything turned out…I think that we really captured them.

And stay tuned for their bridals later today…I’ll have an update for you too about Disneyland Paris!

Okay! I am kicking myself right now. I can’t believe that this session never made it to the blog. It was one of my absolute favorites from last year so we are late getting it up…but better late than never right? Amy and Lonnie, and Amy’s adorable son Avery, are so simply amazing and I am so happy for the family that they have become. Its so fun to get to see them at other weddings throughout the year and be reminded of their gorgeous wedding. It was so amazing! Just wait until you see it…but for now, enjoy their engagements, and stay tuned because later today are Amy’s breathtaking bridals.

So its no secret, I really like to plan out my sessions. My brides and I spend a lot of time planning things out, finding perfect locations, the best outfits, and making sure every detail is just right. And then sometimes none of that works out…there isn’t much about this session that was part of our original plan. We had to change just about everything because of crummy weather. This summer there have been so many summer storms that have gotten in the way of sessions that it has been crazy. And that is exactly what happened…but when push comes to shove, and even when things go wrong, I think all that planning still plays off. Yes, we had to change the location. And yes, we had to reschedule. But in the long run the time we put in helped build a great relationship between and and Tanya so she completely trusted me to pull it off and so we could bring together a pretty wonderful session showing off these two despite all odds.

I love how laid back and natural this session just came together…despite Mother Nature and her efforts to ruin it.

We have such unpredictable weather in Southern Utah…well really anywhere in Utah, so its always a gamble about how things are going to play out. The day of Jadyn & Jake’s engagement session it had been off and on the whole day. But we decided to brave the weather, and I am so glad that we did. I absolutely love the emotion with these photos…the wind in her hair, the movement of her skirt…not to mention how in love these two are. You can just feel it. I was absolutely in love with them in the first few moments and I am so glad I got to be a part of their wedding. They are such a fun couple and he is so hilarious. I have all sorts of new funny material thanks to Mr. Jake. And make sure you stay tune because their bridals are coming up later today…

When I did Kellie’s senior pictures three years ago, I always hoped she would come back to me when she got engaged! So when I got the call that she was getting married I was so excited! She is an absolutely lovely and wonderful gal and I am so thrilled to be a part of her big day. And Colton is just as wonderful! They are an adorable couple and we had such a great time at their engagement session. I just love all the outfits and the colors and everything was just perfect!
