The Paul Family

With every family I photograph I fall more and more in love. With kids, with the family relationships, with the beauty of chaos. Thank you is just lame to say how grateful I feel to all the families who have entrusted me with their particular blend of beautiful chaos this year. You are all absolutely amazing.

Want your family photographed beautifully and authentically in 2015? Please, let’s.

Meisha + Sam: Salt Lake City Backyard Wedding

I will not lie to you–Meisha and Sam are one of my most favorite couples. They ooze romance, bliss, personality. They are grundles of fun–so fun that I had to make up that weird word ‘grundles’ to try to express it. (Where did that come from? No clue. We’ll blame it on the two babies who are my constant conversation partners.)

So, it follows that their wedding day was all of these wonderful things. And yes, Sam did get thrown in the pool. (!!) And yes, there were FIREWORKS. Told ya these two were awesome.

I am humbled with gratitude that this dream pair let me in on their most special day–thank you, Meisha and Sam. I’m honored to call you friends.

In love. Planning the best day of your life. I want in. Contact me about photographing your wedding here.

The Sampson Family

They welcomed me with open arms and sent me home with literally the best sugar cookies I have ever put in my mouth. Their home is beautiful but their love takes the cake…or, the sugar cookie. Okay, all done with bad jokes and on to the good stuff.

Just maybe possibly kinda interested in a family session? See more family photos here, or let’s chat about your session here.

Romney + Jesse: Salt Lake City Wedding

Romney and Jesse. I just sighed trying to think what to write about them, because nothing I say will be able to describe the pure joy that radiated from them on their wedding day. What a treat to be part of so much bliss. And fun! I mean, a fake money exit? I’m all over it.

Romney and Jesse, thank you for letting me celebrate the beginning of your new life together with you–you are both one of a kind and together, just out of this world. Congratulations.

My favorite unwilling subject

She is fast as lightning and film is slower than cold tar but I’m obsessed with following her around for hours to get just a few golden frames.

The truth is I was terrible at shooting Vienna before I started shooting film. It was too easy, I guess, and sorting through hundreds of blah images sapped me dry. I’m getting filled up with inspiration and hunger again. It feels so, so good.

If you’d like to get your little ones and your love for them immortalized into incredible photographs, I just might be able to help you out. See the details for family sessions here, or let’s chat about yours here.

Madison turns one + her mom gets in front of the camera.

Madison turned one and we celebrated and took a few minutes to make some mother-daughter portraits because moms are behind the camera too much. Looking at the prints I have of me with my family on my wall, I just keep thinking, it’s good to be seen. 

If you, mom, want to be seen in your family’s memories and life, let’s make some photographs together.

As a little side note, I’m falling deep, deep in love with film. The slowness, the deliberateness, the not-having-to-sift-through-hundreds-of-imagesness–I’m crazy about it. I thought it would just be a fun venture, but I’m too in love to stop–all this means: changes, loves. Good ones. Coming soon.

the Kelly Family

I learned that it is possible to fall in love with an entire family while photographing this bunch. Samantha is a talented photographer herself, and after we met at Yan’s workshop I knew we would be fast friends. But after I gushed over her girls, her sweet, spunky Hero and snuggly Goldie, the next day I missed all of them. Like, for real.

They’re adorable, of course, but they also carry a love in their family that inspired me to go home and be a better member of my own family. I guess it’s about support–never undermining each other, never an unkind word…you just know, after interacting with them, that they all hold each other up through their shiniest and darkest moments.

And kay, let’s talk about how adorable Hero is in her giraffe costume. I LOVE that Sam and Chas wanted to incorporate it because it’s such a part of who she is and what’s she’s interested in right now. Nothin more authentic than that.

Sam and Chas, thank you for letting me photograph you and your family. It was a dream.

If you are a family full of love, I want to photograph you in your home and the places you love best. More details about family sessions here, or let’s chat about your session.

Tamara + Robbie: Backyard Alpine Wedding

Tamara and Robbie were high school best friends, and when the romance blossomed later it just made sense. They were married at the Mt. Timpanogos temple and celebrated in Tamara’s backyard, with stunning elements curated by Charming Details.

Tamara and Robbie, thank you for letting me in on your big day, and for being generally amazing. Congratulations.
