Tanner + Brittny • Pocatello Bridals

Pocatello has been on my list of places I've wanted to shoot. Every time we drive to Utah I can't help but stare at the stunning mountains through the area. When Brittny mentioned she wanted to do Bridals in Pocatello, I was thrilled, but I had no idea where to shoot! Thank goodness Tausha, Brittny's mom, knew this beautiful area. One of my favorite parts of this spot was being completely surrounded by mountains.

We started the session with a beautiful first look. I think "first looks" are one of the best parts of a bridal session. The excitement that builds up before seeing your future spouse, best friend, and wedding date for the rest of your life, it's pretty neat. I also love being able to document it! Those moments are some of the sweetest and most memorable from my own wedding.

Tanner and Brittny were so giggly and just totally in love during their session! Having been good friends with Tanner the past few years, I am so happy he's found someone who I consider absolutely perfect for him! Congrats to Tanner and Brittny on their wedding day! 

These two also did one of the coolest things I've ever had a bride and groom do! Check it out at the end of this blog post!

Abbott Wedding • Trouts Ranch

Carissa and Jacob's wedding day was one you'd find in a magazine. We had the Teton Mountains as a backdrop for family and bridal photos, Carissa and Jacob were completely and totally in love and you could see it on their faces, and the entire family was so welcoming of me into their special day I hardly felt like a photographer.

Their ceremony was beautiful. One thing that really stuck out to me was when the Officant had Jacob and Carissa pour two different colors of sand into a bottle to symbolize becoming one as husband and wife. That was the first time I'd seen a Blending of the Sands in a Wedding Ceremony and it was such a great reminder to me even in my own marriage.

In addition to having a gorgeous couple, we had beautiful light! Majority of Carissa and Jacob's wedding took place outside allowing me to get the BEST images! Natural light will trump artificial light always. So their entire day was a dream to shoot. And check out that send off. One of the cutest! :) Congrats Jacob and Carissa! Enjoy the married life! It's the best! :) 

Jenna + Kaleb • Rexburg Temple

There is something special about High School Sweethearts. Maybe it's because they know every dream since the very beginning, or that solid foundation of wonderful, and hilarious, memories. Either way, Jenna and Kaleb are the high school sweethearts you dream of being. Kaleb and I had a small chat while we waited for Jenna to come up for the first look. The way he talked about Jenna and their cute apartment, future plans together, and their wedding day reminded me what it's all about. 

Loving and continuing to love through it all.

Jenna waited for Kaleb as he served his two year LDS Mission in Chile and that in itself is pretty amazing. I loved following their journey and I'm so excited for what the future holds for these two. Happy Wedding Day Jenna and Kaleb!
