We’ve been so busy this summer that we haven’t had a chance yet to share our family pictures from our first real family photo session since having Liam. Brooke Major has been helping us out at a lot of weddings this past year, and we were so excited when she said that she would be able to come down from Logan to help us take our family pictures! It can be so hard when you are a photographer to find the right person to take your family pictures, but we are so glad we hired Brooke!
We love visiting historic sites on our vacations! Partially, this is probably because Jessie used to be a history teacher, but the other reason is because they are so fascinating and we always learn a ton! We always joke that we like to go to all the places that the older generations visit, because of the dynamics of the crowds that surround us. On stop two of our East Coast Honeymoon series we are going to tell you about our favorite, must see locations for your historic Massachusetts honeymoon or vacation.
Green! We love it when it’s green outside! You know, when the mountains look like they are straight out of Alaska in the summer? That is usually what we get during summertime Snowbasin family pictures, and this season with Brooke and Brandon Major and their family. They all showed up dressed up perfectly, which, when added to the location and the perfect light, was the cherry on top for these pictures.
Picture in your mind a field of bright yellow wildflowers, then look beyond those flowers and notice the lush mountain ranges in different shades of green. There’s a reason that couples choose to get married most frequently in the summer. One may be because it’s the most convenient for scheduling or for weather, but after photographing this Snowbasin summer engagement session we believe a large part of that reason is the beauty of the season. The setting couldn’t have been more perfect to showcase Brittiny and Jared and their love for each other.
We first met Valerie from The Shabby Chic Sisters a year ago when we were looking for a Utah wedding rentals vendor for our Carnival Inspiration Shoot. We knew she was perfect because she had exactly what we were looking for in rentals, and because she puts her heart into her business and into serving her clients.
A lot of our couples get married in LDS temples and we love photographing those weddings! If there was one thing we would recommend to all our LDS temple couples, it would be to do a formal session before their wedding. Wedding days are a whirlwind and are sometimes unpredictable. Here are our five reasons to do a formal session before your temple wedding!
Engagements are one of our favorite sessions to photograph. We love getting to know our couples during a fun, low-key session before the wedding. Wedding days are fast paced and can be high-stress, so knowing how we pose and interact with you makes wedding day pictures run faster and smoother. Once an engagement session is finished and the images are delivered, the big question is what should you do with your engagement pictures?
As soon as we walked in the front doors of Talia Event Center, our breath was taken away. The twinkling lights in the ceiling of the entryway, the large solarium, and the balcony hovering above a vintage bar were the kind of details that as a photographer you only dream of shooting at a Utah wedding venue.
Thankgiving Point was the site of Breanna and Devin’s favorite date, so it was only fitting to return for a Thanksgiving Point formal session. Originally, their session was supposed to be a few weeks earlier, but a gigantic rain storm caused us to reschedule. We’re so glad we did too, because the golden sunlight was absolutely radiant, the flowers were beginning to bloom, and we had an incredible session!
The lady bug sat still, not moving a single muscle, on a leaf as Violet picked it up off the ground to show the camera. “Can we keep it?” Violet questioned her mom, Kylie, before we all hopped into our cars to drive to our last location for the session. Lady bugs are symbols of love and good luck in a lot of cultures and we think that both were on our side during the Christopherson’s family session.
