Jen is a wonderful friend who was a member of my Italy study abroad group this past summer.  We met up on New Years Eve to photograph the bridals.  We had a beautiful time at Sleepy Ridge in Orem, then had the entire Utah State Capitol building to ourselves for a few hours.  The lighting in the Capitol building is beautiful with huge translucent skylights high above diffusing the light.  Jen and [...]

Jen is a good friend of mine who went to Italy with me in our study abroad group.  We had a great time touring the amazing European country and learning about art history.  I was thrilled when she asked if I’d photograph her engagements.  Jen and Dustin are a fun couple, and they are very happy together.

I was going through some of my old images… and this last semester (back in January) I was able to a shoot as part of my wedding photography class with the Bruuns.  They are already married, but were kind enough to come be models for us for an engagement session.  They were great, and it worked perfectly. This is one of the first shoots I had with my new medium format camera.  [...]

My cousin Derek and his wife Brooke were kind enough to come and help me with a photo assignment to get some bride and groom shots!  We spent the evening at my uncle and aunts house in Salt Lake.  I went with the intent to improve my lighting skills, so most of these shots were lit with strobes. So, thanks again Brooke and Derek for joining me and helping me with the [...]

Gothic Bridals

Gothic Bridals

Saturday, February 13, 2010

So, for  the last few months I have been wanting to shoot some Gothic bridals.  One day, as a photography class, we walked by a stack of gas masks… and I knew I had to add that to my concept!  Last night I got together with some other photographer friends (Jake Buntjer, Kurt Poecker,  and Nate Edwards) shot the concept!  I originally contacted the owner of Goatman Flats, a local and amazing [...]

My little sister was married to her husband on September 25, 2009.  I was priveleged to be able to be with them and the rest of our families while in the Salt Lake Temple and after wards for the celebrations.  That Friday morning couldn’t have been more beautiful!  Besides the amazing feeling I was having, I was thrilled to be able to take a handful of pictures so they might remember a [...]

My First Wedding Shoot!

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

Back in November/December 2008, I wrote my family and close friends and mentioned that I would love to offer free photography and graphic design so I could grow my portfolio.  Well, my response was less than exciting.  My wife had a friend who was getting married, but wasn’t planning on hiring a photographer.  I jumped on the oportunity, and asked if she’d like me to shoot her wedding for free.  She accepted!  [...]

Emily and Shea were married in the Salt Lake Temple.  It was a beautiful day, and my first experience photographing a wedding!  They make a wonderful couple, and you can tell from their eyes and the way they look at each other that they love each other.
