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 :)

Jordan & Kevin's First Look // Salt Lake Temple



People ask me if I get burned out shooting weddings for the past 13 years.

It's just the opposite. That's what has kept me young.
How can you get tired of seeing the look on a couples face when they see each other for the first time in their wedding attire? It reaffirms that there is still hope, love and goodness in this crazy world of ours.

Bring it!

Spring First Look // Salt Lake Temple



Madeline and Zach are getting married tomorrow, but their video is already half way done :)

Filming prior to the wedding is a way for you two to have your own time together. I had no idea until I was married how insane it gets the last couple weeks before the wedding and of course the wedding day. I had to take a break with my fiance from everything just to catch our breath and remember WHY we were getting married.

A pre shoot is a great time to do that. We take our time to get some amazing shots and really just enjoy the break from everything. When I film it's really just hanging out capturing candid moments and it's actually fun and relaxing. Fortunately for me I have a very easy going personality and often receive comments from brides that I help them relax and just be themselves. That's probably because the most important thing to me at a wedding is that you enjoy your wedding. It's not the video, nor the pictures, nor the cake or anything else. It's your experience! Everything else will fall into place if you focus on the reason WHY you are getting married and surround yourself with others who do the same.

I absolutely love filming and enjoying the experience of the day and you should too!

Timpanogos Temple Teaser (say that five times fast)

Who says the Mt Timp Temple can't be an amazing place to shoot? The sky can be just mind blowing and across the road from the temple is a stone amphitheater near some great backroads. The trick is to film near the evening when everything is just magical. That's when magic rings do crazy stuff (lol).

Much love to Mitch and Danyelle :)

Josh & Eliza are so much fun and definitely easy on the eyes. Talk about making my job a piece of cake! Had the pleasure of working with the fabulous Brooke Davis from Blush Photography so it was just awesome all the way around.

Andy & Jacki's Same Day Edit

Jacki loves candids and wanted something a little different, so that's what we captured! Easy to film a bride when she's a photographer (http://jackistoddard.blogspot.com/) and knows what she wants. What's even better is that she trusts the professionals she's hired and we really had so much fun. Today was just about perfect - 55 degrees in February sounds great to me!!!

What you see on the outside isn't always the full story. The wedding video shows a beautiful couple having the time of their lives. Jacki's mother died from breast cancer and her father was killed in an accident (that's why you don't see them in the video) and Andi had food poisoning so we had to stop filming several times for him to try and throw up (that's why there are a bunch of shots of Jacki by herself.) Jacki & Andy could have focused on the negative yesterday, but instead chose happiness with the cards they had been dealt. They chose the song "Good Life" because that's what they make it. Remember - what you focus on expands, so focus on what you want. Hats off to Andy and Jacki! 

Special shout out to Abbey from akstudiodesign.com. She was so great to work with today and took some amazing images they had up at the reception. In fact, people were asking if we were a team. Great to work with vendors who are professional and want to help others succeed so the bride can get what she wants. Thanks!

Brady & Missy's underwater reception...

Here's a short highlight from the final video. Brady & Missy were so much fun!! On top of that we were working the fabulous Lindsey from Lindsey Shaun Photography! Yep, just about a perfect day... except for the gale force winds that hit the reception. Did it slow this group down? Ha! Check it out!
