We’ve been getting a considerable amount of rain here in Southern Utah, which has been both a blessing and a pain. Homes have flooded, entire freeways have washed away, and rivers have cut new pathways.
Saturday we photographed a wedding at the St. George Temple. It had been raining the entire evening before but the skies cleared in the morning. Then about 30 minutes before we were to start photography, the clouds rolled back in and opened up! Natasha and I were definitely challenged to be creative in the rain without getting both our equipment and the couple sopping wet! Jacob and Elyse were great sports and actually welcomed the chance to take some unique photographs!
For over a year we have looked forward to Andrew and Julie’s wedding in Zion National Park. In some ways, the year that we had them on the books dragged on and on… and in other ways it was like, “Woah! Their wedding is already here!”
Over the phone and via e-mails we had the feeling that they were an amazing couple and that their wedding would be great. As soon as we arrived in the tram boarding area at the Zion National Park visitor center our suspicions were confirmed.
For their ceremony, they decided on the Temple of Sinawava… which is the beginning of the Riverwalk Trail to The Narrows. Steve Masefield officiated, whom we have worked with numerous times and highly recommend! The actual ceremony took place on the edge of a waterfall on the Virgin River with only a handful of people in attendance. Julie stressed to us that this was to be a “low-key gig” and didn’t want a lot of formal hullabaloo! Personally, these are my favorite kinds of weddings to photograph. Very low stress and a lot of love and meaning at it’s rawest core!
Please enjoy some of our favorite images from their wedding day!
All I can say is… It’s been awhile.
Finally with our new babies not being so new, summer drawing to a close, and school starting back up next week the fog is lifting! We’ve been doing some business overhauling behind the scenes with downsizing, readjusting our pricing and reworking our product lines. Finally I feel we’ve gotten to a place of stability and are ready to reopen our doors so to speak.
Three weeks ago we got back on the saddle with a gorgeous wedding in Zion National Park.
Here are some photos of us taking photos!
New beginnings are always fun. Firstly, We’d like to apologize to any current clients or prospective clients that may have felt like they were swept under the rug recently. Truthfully, we’ve been dealing with some stuff. Like growing our families.

We know this has been mentioned elsewhere. Maybe here on the blog, or maybe on Facebook. I don’t know… the last several months have been a fog… but here are some reminders:
- If you have already booked a wedding with us, we are still shooting your wedding! Don’t Panic!
- If you want to book a wedding with us, we’re only booking new weddings or engagement sessions for late February, March and early April. (Natasha’s having a baby boy in May).
- After our spring weddings (and one in July) we will be on leave for a undetermined amount of time while we adjust to our new circumstances.
- We’re not going away forever, so continue to check back on occasion and see what we’re up to.
- We still have past weddings to add to the blog. We will be slowly getting these up as we free up time.
XOXO! Natasha & Amy
