International Peace Gardens / First Look

I loved spending the evening with Brentt and Ashley! I filmed her sisters wedding last year and so it was like spending time with family :) Ashley's flowers were amazing and they both pulled out their dance moves. I love the culture and traditions of Island weddings and I am so excited for their reception with a fire dancer!

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.

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 :).

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 :)

6 am Wedding Day First Look // Salt Lake Temple

Ali and Jon made me a believer. Morning shoots are amazing for lighting! They wanted their first look to be the day of their wedding so we filmed them prior to going into the temple then captured their family shots when they came out. Congrats you love birds!!!

Shout out to Dave Labrum from www.davelabrumphotography.com for telling Ali and Jon about me and for being so great to work with.
