New Clients – Read this new info before inquiring about your date!

Lately some changes have been happening, and because of such… I am not taking on new clients until an unknown point in the future. Sad Face. But here is a list of my justifications…

Reason #1: I have a very full summer of traveling from Washington State… all the way to Florida (literally coast to coast) with 6 kids and a dog. When we aren’t traveling, I’m still busy shuttling to and from summer camps and golf tournaments.

Reason #2: I have 2 babies. I actually have 6 babies, but 2 are technically BABIES (10 months and 2 years). This makes it difficult to schedule weddings where I know I’ll be away for many hours without a shooting partner.

Reason #3: The biggest change is that Natasha has left Photo Love Stories to pursue her new woodworking business with her husband. Because of her leaving, it has increased my work burden and I’m not able to accommodate the level of service we’ve previously supplied as a duo. 

Reason #4: Really important information to do with how my family may be operating in the future that I can’t disclose for another month or so.

Reason #5: Budget weddings. I don’t shoot budget weddings, but everyone wants a budget photographer. You may still inquire if I will be available when your wedding date rolls around but, but prescreen yourself by asking these 2 questions; Is my photography budget at least $1,000? Is my wedding on a Saturday? If you answered yes to both, then continue to inquire about your date!

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!
