Austin + Ashley • Kelly Canyon

At Case family reunions, Austin was the quiet one. He kept to himself for the majority of time even during Case game nights. And in order to get him to talk, you had to ask him direct questions. I saw him and Ashley were getting pretty serious and I was so excited to hear they were engaged! Austin got ahold of me within a week of the engagement and we planned their session for the next weekend.
I won't lie, I was nervous! I'm all about drawing out emotions and being interactive during my sessions. And my shoots do require quite a bit of talking. With Austin being my cousin and not hearing more than a few words from him over a week at a time, I wondered how I was going to get him to smile and have fun during our session. 
Thank goodness he's marrying Ashley because she literally brings out the absolute best in him! I heard Austin talk more in the first five minutes of our session, than I've heard him say at all our family reunions combined! And they both had me laughing more than I think I've ever laughed at a session before! Since Ashley is a dancer, I loved watching them slow dance. I could tell it's something they'd been working on. Congrats Austin and Ashley! 

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!

Kaylee + Nate • Idaho Engagements

I have dreamed for a location like this. One with variety and options. I'm obsessed with the mountain view, the lake and beach, and of course the sagebrush! I've grown to love sagebrush here in Idaho. This hidden gem is about the same distance from to Rexburg to Kelly's which makes it perfect for my clients! Not to mention the weather is usually better in this area than it is in Idaho Falls. 

Kaylee and Nate were so willing to test it out and can I say DREAMY! Nate and Kaylee spent quite a bit of time on the beach together. And in March Nate proposed to Kaylee on the beach of Texas! Idaho doesn't have beaches, but we fake it pretty good. Halfway through our session Kaylee pointed out this stunning field. Those romantic shots of Kaylee and Nate in the field are some of my favorites from the entire session!
