DJ & Haley's Temple Film

Smiles all around and good times at the Salt Lake Temple. I just love DJ and Haley!!
You might have seen DJ's sister's video I did (Jacki Miller - (http://vimeo.com/37293718) and so you know that this family is fun! So lucky to have the world famous Abbey Kyhl from http://akstudiodesign.com/ to hang with at the wedding. You really should follow her work!
Received a very kind email from Haley, " I just have to let you know, we absolutely loved working with you! You were just so down to earth and fun and easy to be with, so thank you for the awesome experience."
I love that she mentioned the word "experience" because my ultimate goal is not to capture the perfect image, but to ensure that you absolutely enjoy your wedding day. If that happens, I will get great shots and everybody's happy :)

Moments Like This - The Afters


Kip & Hannah's Pre Shoot Teaser


Kip & Hannah wanted to film in the mountains as well as the temple for their pre shoot so we headed up above Sundance along the Alpine loop. Gorgeous day and these two are perfect for each other. Love the flowers and working with Kristina Curtis from http://www.kristinacurtisphotography.com/ was a dream as usual :)

McKale & Kurt's Pre Wedding Shoot + Same Day Edit


McKale & Kurt have this incredible light coming from them that it's just a pleasure to hang out with them. They are so positive and grateful for everything and everyone in their lives that it inspires me to be a better person. Today was so much fun, especially since Kristina Curtis from www.kristinacurtisphotography.com was there for the fun. She's just so great to have around the wedding day - super nice and also talented.

I am full of gratitude that I have been so blessed to capture one of the most important days in a bride and groom's life and I get to hang out with positive and happy people. I just eat it up :)


Chris & Steph's Pre Wedding Shoot

Chris and Steph have a really soft love that is perfectly surrounded with blossoms. This is the kind of video I love doing - very subtle yet powerful. It's all the little things that matter and a video shows the small smiles, tender hugs and little nuances that nothing else can share. These are the kinds of moments that you can't explain to your future children and they really need to see it to experience it... and they will :)


David & Samantha's Reception Film


David & Samantha held their reception at Wadley Farms, where it's so beautiful outside in the gardens. Outdoor receptions are always the best for candid shots as everyone is typically more comfortable outside with plenty of room to roam and it's always great to capture the sunset during that magic hour of golden light.


Alex & Kimi's Same Day Edit

What a fun family and look at that dress - just amazing! We were fortunate to get the fall temperatures before going into the crazy cold winter season. This is the same day edit we had playing at Alex and Kimi's reception that evening at the Gallivan Center (were I had my reception! :)

Why am I so lucky to be able to film happy people all the time? Does it rub off? You bet it does!


Annie + Brad's Same Day Edit // Orlando Temple

Brad and Annie are the coolest! I just love seeing two people over the top excited to get married and to have some fun in the process :).

Fun info from the wedding:
Annie sewed a heart on the back of Brad's tie, Brad gave Annie a surprise gift while we were filming the first look before they went in for their sealing, Annie gave Brad an "Ellie Pin" (grape soda pin from the movie "Up!") which is "the highest honor one can bestow." all the suits were purchased for the same price if they would have rented tuxedos, Brad and Annie have known each other for ten years, It was 93 degrees today, Brad and Annie were sealed by the temple president who is being released in a few weeks so this was his very last sealing as temple president, I got to attend the sealing :), lucky to work with the photographer Dallas Graham who has an incredible project you can check out at http://redfredproject.com/dallas-graham/, Brad has Superman cuff links, and this video isn't the actual video. The real video is set to a different song and is longer but you have to come to the reception to see it ;).

I love being around happy people. I love filming happy people and I love watching videos about happy people. This video definitely qualifies for the happy category :).


Banff & Lake Louise, Canada

Was on vacation at one of my favorite spots in the world last week: Banff and Lake Louise! Lake Louise is a glacier lake in the Canadian Rockies that has suspended silt which relfects the light and creates an incredible aqua color. Just stunning! You have to make time for family :)


Family Time

I love making family movies. Capturing those simple, every day joys that make up eternity. Hope you are capturing you little moments as well :)
