Mark & Annie's First Look Bountiful Temple

Mark and Annie are so great for each other. They have this soft light about them that's so beautiful. Cold day, but very warm hearts :)
Annie is an amazing artist and I mean A-MA-ZING. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOKng1yBDMM. Her website is www.anniehenrie.com.
Annie and I talked about the importance of light and how art can be an expression of the Light of Christ and I love the light that was provided during our shoot. Very appropriate for these two :)
So grateful to have spent the afternoon together and wishing them all the best!!!

Carson and Kara First Look Salt Lake Temple

And yet another amazing wedding today!!! You might have heard of the world famous wrestler Carson Kuhn ... National Champ, three state championships (undefeated all three years), USA world team. Well, it looks like someone finally took him out... Kara Smack. 

I filmed Carson twelve years ago in his neighbors wedding video (his sister went on to marry the bride's brother) and he still remember that video and had several special requests to have put in the film - try to guess what they are :).

Both Carson and Kara served missions and wanted their mission name badges in the film and Kara surprised Carson with some patriotic shoes for the first look -  so lot's of little details to make their wedding film unique to them.

Caron's uncle Nathan Ivie was so great to shoot with and is just an awesome guy. Check out his work at http://www.nathaniviephotography.com/

This song from www.themusicbed.com was just perfect for them! "You Are Mine feat. Spencer Combs & Holley Maher" by Secret Nation

Rick and Andie's First Look Big Cottonwood Canyon

Here's a shout out to all my awesome clients who educate their family and friends on the value of a well produced wedding film. Andie's cousins, Rachel Parcell (www.pinkpeonies.com) and Emily Jackson (www.theivorylane.com) told Andie that the most important thing of the wedding was having me film her wedding :).

Andie wanted a winter look to her film and Shannon from http://www.shannonelizabethphoto.com/ scouted out the location up Big Cottonwood Canyon which turned out to be just perfect. When Andie told me her father is a pilot, I knew we had to pull out the drone and get some aerials which truly add a cinematic look to the film. However, the heart of the film is always the emotion between the bride and groom and I love how their film captures those emotions.

Matt and Sarah's First Look Salt Lake Temple

Matt and Sarah have been dating nine years and it looks like it was worth the wait :). Super emotional first look and one of the most gorgeous days of the fall - everything was just perfect!

Matt is a photographer (www.mattchristensenphotography.com) so we go way back shooting weddings together and it was so nice to hang out with great friends, including Kelly Sansom from www.galleryphotography.com who is one of the funnest photographers out there. Always a party :)

The song "All This Time" fits perfectly to their long journey. Licensed via www.songfreedom.com.

Since today is the official wedding day..... enjoy their pre wedding film :)

Judson and Diana's First Look Salt Lake Temple

Last year I took my family on a LDS church history tour. While touring the Peter Whitmer Home near Palmyra, NY I met two sister missionaries. I had just filmed in the Sacred Grove the door before and showed them that clip on my iPhone and they started following my work.
Fast forward 11 months and I'm filming Sister Johnson's wedding! Even more interesting is that Judson (Elder Stoddard) was a missionary in the same mission at the same time. It's really amazing how when we follow God, He leads us to wonderful places :).

Tim and Grace's First Look Salt Lake Temple

OK, these two are just the most adorable couple. I want to just hug them! I love this video because it is full of love and light. (That's my family motto, "Love and Light")

If I ever feel a little down or overwhelmed I come and watch my videos on my blog and it makes me instantly happy to see couples like Tim and Grace full of joy and happiness. Life isn't easy and it's definitely not a bed of roses, but there are moments like this that make it all worth it!

My goal is to capture those moments so we can focus on these good times and be reminded that there is a Father in Heaven who loves us and we will feel this way (x's one million) when we are in His presence :).

It's the "Liddle" Things in Life

Had so much fun with the Liddle family!

This is what Angela had to say about our shoot:

"'Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters.'
This past year has been an absolutely a beautiful experience for myself and my little family. I'm not saying every day was perfect, but we found joy in the journey together. I wanted to celebrate and capture my family in a way that would help me always remember this beautiful stage in our lives. David Perrycaptured these moments perfectly, and I know we will treasure this video for many years to come. These 4 people I have in my life are all my best friends and I'm grateful that they are as much there for me as I am trying to be for them. Every day I am so grateful to have them in my life. Hope you enjoy a glimpse at some of our favorite things we love to do together. And remember to make every day lovely with those who are most important ."

DJ & Haley's Same Day Edit Salt Lake Temple

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 :)
