Sharing another of these cuties in my favorite corner of Utah. I've been thinking about how lucky we are to do most of our work in the mountains. There's something deeply intimate about being there and breathing in the fresh air, hearing the quiet mountain sounds and knowing nothing is around for miles. It always sets such a nice tone between people together.
I'll take any excuse to share another moment from Shay and Ryan's formals in these moody trees. Just wanted to chime in and wish these two a happy wedding day! Their love felt so natural and comfortable and all I could think about while taking these is how badly I wanted to stay in the trees with them for just a few more hours. Just a few. Anyway, I hope everyone's having a lovely start to the weekend!
We had the best weekend shooting weddings and are now unpacking and editing like mad in our new little home. ♡ Just wanted to share a favorite of these two since we celebrated with them. Their wedding was very classy and full of so much love that was really fun to see. Many tears were shed, their loved ones treated is like family and overall it was such beautiful day. Also want to add that this was taken well after sundown with no artificial light. Embracing the range my camera gives has been really neat.
The prettiest light found it's way into Chelsey and Levi's first dance and guys I'm telling you, it couldn't have been more lovely. Those moments when all are focused on them and you can truly feel the love that surrounds them are always my favorite. I'm so happy for you both. Also this one is one of Todd's shots. We shoot exactly the same to the point where I thought this was mine and was bummed when he said it was his. 😃 pc: @dawildwest
Guys it's official, we started moving into our new home and finally get to spend our first night tonight! In the midst of wedding season and moving it feels amazing having a night off together where neither of us are working for a little bit. We've had quite a few stunning weddings and bridal sessions over the last couple of weeks. Makes it easy to feel happy and inspired when we get to be around it daily. Excited to spend some quality time with Todd and I hope you're all having a wonderful start to your week. ♡♡ #elishaandtodd#thatslove#reallyhappypeople#petersenfamilyfarms#liveauthentic#utahphotographer#utahweddingphotographer#utah
When I was younger if you would have told me that I would drive around parts of the HOT desert for 8 hours I would not have believed you. I very much disliked being in heat and in a car.
This past weekend we did just that. And as a result, this colorful desert sunrise at Cathedral Valley came to be!
We got up at 4 a.m., climbing out of our @tentsile we listened to a pack of coyotes howling and yapping a short distance away. We packed up and drove the remaining 35 minutes to Cathedral Valley. It was defiantly worth it--being in beautiful places, seeing beautiful things.. Places like this are motivating. A special thanks to @tayevans11 for coming along.
