Who gets to go to work on the temple grounds and spend their day capturing the celebrations of a happy gorgeous couple? Me. I am so so lucky. I love these guys and had a blast capturing their joy and every gorgeous detail of the day. Congrats Kayleigh and Parker!
I'm so behind on posting the weddings and families I've been shooting! More of that soon, but in the meantime, I got to spend time with my friend Annie and her brand new baby. Annie and I were friends who went through the super fun dating scene of South Provo together, and I can't believe she has three kids now! He was so so so good and seriously didn't cry ONCE the entire time he was here. Zoe and Asher have very different ideas about their new little brother, which was hilarious to capture. Congrats Annie! I love you little Micah!
Do you remember the morning of your wedding day? Sharing a room with your cousins and waking up every few minutes the night before? Being so excited to finally get out of bed at the crack of dawn? Your dad bringing peanut butter toast to the bathroom while getting your hair done at 5am? The early morning texts from your fiancé? The forgotten tux shoes? Your mom helping you into your dress? These little details are engrained in my heart from the day of my wedding, and I hope my mind and heart never forget them. Because I don't have a single picture of any of those things. They were all the little things that made the day so magical.
I was so happy to be there to capture some of these moments on the morning of Kayla and Rob's wedding day. I got to be there for the hair appt, the quick Clif bar, the texts coming in from Rob, her mom helping her into the gown, the look on her mom's face when she saw Kayla in her gown and veil on the day of her wedding, and Rob and Kayla's "first look".
We also got to shoot some Groomals at Bridal Veil Falls that morning, because Rob didn't want to see Kayla in her gown until the day of the wedding. We timed it perfectly and greeted the sun coming over the mountain!
Here are a few shots from that morning - I'll post some shots of later in the day, (the Temple, Ring Ceremony, and Reception) in a different post.
Another extended family session - this Family is one of my favorites - I've done several weddings and family shoots for them - and went through college with Sarah and Kenneth as some of my best friends. Love you Wrights!
I've had on my website (actually I probably still do - need to change that!) that I don't photograph large extended families. But I've been asked so many times over the past several years, and somewhere along the way started saying yes - and I have to say they have been SO enjoyable! It's like doing a wedding, but without quite so much stress on the family. I love getting to see how families, who don't get to see each other often, are together at Family Reunions. It's fun to watch the dynamics between adult children who still act like goofy boys when they are together, and between cousins who get to see each other only so often. And best of all - the grandparents with their little ones:) Brown Family - I hope you have wonderful memories of your reunion this summer - I know I sure enjoyed the hour I got to spend with you!
