You could call this a stroke of luck that we were able to meet for this session when we did. Even though the trees had almost given up on all of their leaves, the grass had turned a nice glowing shade of cream. Although some may think that this means that the grass is “dead”, it’s a photographer’s paradise for lighting. This time period only lasts for a couple of days before it all changes and we can no longer capture these colors, so because of that, we call it luck.
When you are looking for that perfect photographer for your Utah wedding, one of the things that you need to keep an eye out for is if they offer engagement sessions. Maybe you think an engagement session isn’t a big deal, or your friend is going to do yours for you. Before you make that final decision, here are our top four reasons why YOU need an engagement session!
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.
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?
“This is Us” is one of our favorite shows on TV right now. One of the themes and sayings in the show that is repeated over and over again is that “there is no lemon so sour that you can’t make something resembling lemonade.” Although this is a wonderful quote… sometimes real life happens and it can be difficult to put it into practice. Sometimes, the pain is so real and hard that it doesn’t feel like there is any way that you will ever come out of it and make anything resembling lemonade. As we met with Ashley, Ryan and their girls for this Salt Lake engagement and family session, it was evident that they had made lemonade.
A VERY tall man walked towards us in a hoodie. He kind of swayed back and forth as he walked, it was familiar to both of us… was this Rudy Gobert?! We instantly stopped shooting with our cameras and stared… nope. Not him. Crazy though… It looked just like him! We were downtown for this Salt Lake engagement session after all, but for us to see him would have been a cherry on top this day. Because EVERYTHING else today was perfect for taking pictures with Breanna and Devin.
One of the biggest stresses for our couples when they are preparing for their engagement session is the question of what to wear? Engagement session outfits add a lot to a picture and they can really enhance an image or take away from an image. But choosing outfits doesn’t have to be stressful at all! Here are a few tips to help!
These two just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. They met in a high school play that they both were in. My mom is a very talented pianist, and played all of the musical numbers. My dad said that he had a crush on her and wanted a singing part so that he could practice with her and get to know her. Well… he didn’t get a singing part in the play. It was a part that only had lines. As luck would have it, he ended up being in the same carpool as my mom and the two hit it off!
The sun was shining and unusually warm for November. Even though fall had hit its peak and most trees had no leaves, for some reason, these trees held on. The trees had survived a few frosts already, which meant that the leaves that they were somehow holding onto still had a wonderful white glow from the perfect light produced by the sun. It was almost like cotton was growing on them (not popcorn… that’s a different season… and that only happens on apricot trees).
“Caution: Cougars Frequent the Area!” The worn yellow sign could not have been any more ironic. We all had a chuckle as we hiked down the steep road to the reservoir. Julia and Garrett were attending Brigham Young University after all, making them “Cougars”. As we continued down the path, the vista was peeled away from the cover of the tall surrounding trees. A beautiful, glass-like lake came into view. The sign couldn’t have been any more correct. This area was perfect for these two “Cougars”.
