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!

Kamlyn + Cole • Salt Lake Bridals

Back in August I had the opportunity to shoot an epic engagement session at Cave Falls with Kamlyn and Cole. The weather, their outfits, the scenery, it was all perfection! You can view that gorgeous set HERE. 

Then we started planning a just as gorgeous bridal session in Salt Lake City. I love when brides choose to have their bridal session a separate day from the wedding! It takes out stress from the wedding day and gives couples a chance to enjoy the present.

We met up at the Joseph Smith Building and I led Cole outside of the building. I was amazed to find so much color left over at the end of November! We had bright greens in areas, and total fall in others. Not to mention we had 50 degree weather which was a dream to shoot in. 

Kamlyn and Cole were all smiles for their bridal session. It was obvious these two are excited to spend eternity together. I loved their carefree attitudes and I am so happy for them. Happy Wedding Day Mr. and Mrs. Harker!

Madi + Ethan • Payson Temple Wedding

I recommend to my Bride's to do their Bridals and "First Look" a few weeks before the wedding. This has a few perks and one is you'll have wedding photos to display at your reception! Your guests who couldn't attend your ceremony or the temple will adore seeing beautiful photos of the two of you. It's also one less thing you have to do on your wedding day! Your wedding day is one of the most emotional and beautiful days and you'll want to soak it all in. Enjoy that time with family instead of taking an hour away from those who came to celebrate you. With how much I love first looks and a separate bridal session, I  was thrilled when Madi and Ethan told me that's exactly what they wanted. 

Madi and Ethan met me at the Payson Temple a few weeks before their October wedding. They had an adorable first look and I remember Ethan saying, "Aw, Mads! You are gorgeous! Let me see your hair!" Ethan was so happy to see his beautiful bride-to-be and I loved hearing him call her Mads. Nicknames have always held a special place in my heart.  

The prettiest decorations, cake, flowers, and lights were throughout the reception including quite a bit of pie! The highlight of the entire Bennett and Klassen Wedding was watching as both Madi and Ethan signed to Madi's neighbor, Frankie. They each took 5 minutes to talk and sign back and forth with Frankie as he went through the reception line. It softened my heart seeing the selflessness these two have and I was honored to capture and attend their beautiful October Wedding. Enjoy a few ( or a bunch ) of my favorites from their Wedding.
