Kaila and Andrew will soon be celebrating the first anniversary of their wedding last summer.  .This is the 2nd time I’ve gotten to work with the Nelko family and I couldn’t have been more honored.  Plus it’s always a treat to get to work with a family, again.  I’ve had such a blast with them both times.

Kaila was the very first person to meet me in my new studio almost 2 1/2 years ago.  I was giving away a gift certificate that day for my open house and she ended up being the winner.  Bonus!  Check out their gorgeous day below.

Happy Anniversary to them!!

I couldn’t wait for Liz & Kirkland’s wedding day.  The two of them were so incredibly sweet at the engagement.  The way they looked at and treated each other.  High school sweethearts are always my favorite.  On their wedding day, Angie (my friend & assistant) said something that has stuck with me since – “when he looks at her, his eyes smile”.  🙂  That was it.  That was what I was seeing during the engagement session and even more so on the wedding day.

I’m so thankful they welcomed me into that  and honored to have been there to capture it!

Some things about Ashlee & Jarred: 1.) They are big into golf and are getting married on a golf course. 2.) They are Despicable Me fans (when my phone interrupted with, “It’s so fluffy!” – thanks to my 8 year old daughter – they both got it and let me know it was one of their fav movies, too 🙂 ), 3.) They are really good at faking not being cold and 4.) They are so sweet together.

I’m looking forward to their sunny, warm & beautiful wedding day in July (now that we got all the crappy weather out of the way at the engagement, I think we’re good!)  🙂  See you both soon!

Millcreek is definitely the hotspot for photography.  There is a reason for that – it’s gorgeous.  So much opportunity in one area.  I shoot there way more often than anywhere else. The familiarity of it is comforting, but I’m always trying to find something new to shoot – otherwise I risk having everyone’s images look the same! So Nikki and I shot in some familiar spots and then we found some really cool natural sculptures to use for pretty texture in the background. Here are some of my favs from her senior session! 🙂

It always makes me feel good when a client returns!  I had photographed Nicole’s pretty sister a few years ago when she was graduating.  This time it was Nicole’s turn.  She had some really cute ideas (books she loves, tons of glitter – some of my fav images).  The rest she left up to me!  🙂
