Heather + Jasey – Zion National Park Wedding

Far back at the Temple of Sinawava in Zion National Park… Heather, 20 of Jasey and Heather’s closest friends and family gathered to watch them say their wedding vows. They live in Ogden, Utah and met at their place of employment, Hill Airforce base. Zion National Park is very special to them both and they choose to vacation there several times a year. It only seemed natural that they should say their vows to each other beneath the majestic red sandstone walls. April 29th, 2015.

 

Aubrie + Nicholas – Las Vegas, NV, LDS Temple Wedding

This wonderful note came in the mail which on the back said,

Thank you so much for coming out to Vegas to shoot our wedding in the rain. The pictures look amazing! Thank you again!

XOXO

Love,

Aubrie & Nicholas

 

The wedding really was wet and soggy, but we made the best of it and had so much fun anyway! Even if we had to go to Target and buy new shoes afterward.

Rainy, Rainy Day

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!

Elan Magazine Shoot

We first fell in love with our dress model, Jasmine, while we were exhibiting at the So. Utah Wedding Showcase in January. She was one of the models for Lauren James Bridal, and participated in the runway show. She was spunky and after the show we approached her about some day modeling for us. Little did she know that the shoot she’d participate in would end up as a feature in a magazine! Score!

Andrew + Julie – Zion National Park Wedding

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!
