abby + weston | bridals

February in Las Vegas is the perfect time for a wedding! The weather is typically beautiful…except for this year! 2019 has proved to bring a snowy (YES, snowy!) and wet February! Luckily this bride was able to get some bridal photos before her windy and rainy wedding day! So here they are. We went to Lake Las Vegas and photographed out there while the weather was nice. It was my first time meeting her fiancé, Weston, and they’re just the sweetest together! Abby and Weston met in high school and were set up by none other than his own mother! She clearly knew a good thing when she saw and met Abby! As a mother of only sons I can’t help but relate. Like, will I be setting up my own teenage sons with cute teenage girls? Haha, so funny to think about but I definitely wouldn’t put it past me! Anyway, here are their sweet bridals!

taylor & bracken | first look & formals

Taylor and Bracken have to be some of the most real people I've ever met. They are young, carefree, madly in love, and are kind in a way that's unique for just about anyone. Here, during this shoot, we did a first look and it took place at the Salt Lake Country Club. We then headed to the Salt Lake LDS Temple for more formal photos and finished the evening off right. It was a laid-back shoot, which I was grateful for. They made my job seem less like work and more like kicking back with old pals.

Today these two love-birds sealed the deal (literally) at the gorgeous Salt Lake City LDS Temple! Stephanie and Matt are an adorable couple full of non-stop laughing fits and smiles for days, so spending time with them hardly feels like work! They made my job so easy, so much fun to do. Thank you, Stephanie and Matt, for having me out to document your beautiful event.

Locations: Temple Square and Memory Grove

erin + eric | bridals

Is it strange to admit I want to be this couple? Like, really. A few reasons why include their mad style, the way they laugh adoringly at one another, and the way they effortlessly fall into each others arms ... they're a photographers dream. They were my photography dream! The day of this photo shoot was quite windy at times, but Erin stood strong when the February wind was trying to break her spirits. I was so impressed with her smile despite the chill. It shows what a rad chick this woman is.

anne's bridals

This beautiful bride and I went to the lovely La Caille for her bridal photos. It was such a perfect day! The sun was low and the grounds were perfection. The venue is getting ready for spring, that's for sure! But back to the bride ... Anne is one of those girls who you spend time with and she inspires you to want to be a better person. She's so kind and so energetic. I absolutely love this girl, in case you can't tell.

If you were wondering about the details ... Carolyn May created the lovely bouquet you see here. And the dress? Made by the one and only Penelope, the same woman who designed my own wedding dress!
