Snowy Bridals

I was so excited to do these Bridals for Dancey. First of all, it had been a while since I had done a bride. Second, she wanted to do something “country-ish” outside… even if it was snowy. Third, she’s just so darn pretty! What more reason do you need to be excited about a session? We ended up at a friend’s barn, and although it was chilly, the sun was shining and it was actually really a beautiful day.

We got SO MANY FUN IMAGES! It was actually really hard to choose which ones to post here on the blog!

The light was GORGEOUS inside the barn. I really want to go back and shoot a whole bunch more sessions there… anyone want in?

I love the colors she chose. Red and Turquoise are a beautiful combination.

And boots? I was so glad when she told me she was wearing boots… I knew it would be pretty dirty at the barn, and that we’d already have to be pretty careful with her dress, but boots can take anything! And how cool are they?

I really enjoyed getting to know Dancey and her super fun personality. Plus, what a cool name she has!

And those EYES? Are you kidding me? She probably thought I was such a dork when I kept telling her how amazing they are!

Like I said… PERSONALITY! Her Wes is one lucky guy. She is a ton of fun.

Tromp out into the deeper snow? Sure! She was up for anything. So we did. We trekked out into the field, and the snow was deeper in some spots than it looked, but we found a spot that wasn’t TOO deep, and we captured some pretty fun shots. This was so fun.

I got to shoot her wedding a couple of Saturdays ago, and I can’t wait to post images from their special day. It was tons of fun.

Thomas Siblings

As I catch up on my blogging, I will post current sessions as well as older sessions that I haven’t yet shared. Here is a recent session. I’m so excited to finally share it, now that these siblings’ mom has finally received her birthday present! 

 Back in February, I had the super fun opportunity to go to Memory Grove in Salt Lake City and photograph these siblings. Jen called me saying she wanted to do something fun for her mom’s birthday/parents’ anniversary. Photos are such a great gift! As we drove up I-15 toward Salt Lake, we noticed the dark clouds gathering above our heads, and even went through a mini-blizzard, but we stayed in contact. At that time, skies were blue in the city and things were looking good. By the time we pulled up to Memory Grove, the blue sky had disappeared, the sun was gone, and snow clouds hovered. Jen and her siblings arrived just as giant snowflakes were fluttering down around us. We weren’t going to let that stop us, and we ended up getting some great shots!

The three siblings, along with the one who married in: luckily nobody slipped and fell on our way up the steps. It was slick!

They hugged in tight, just trying to stay warm.

If Jen and her brothers’ parents are like my in-laws, they probably consider their beautiful daughter-in-law to be a daughter. My husband’s mom always says “The in-law part is just a formality.” I’m willing to bet that Mama Thomas feels the same way.

How lucky is Jen to have two fun brothers to watch out for her! I love my sisters, but I always wished for a brother. Lucky Jen got TWO!

And then there was the youngest brother. He’s now in the MTC preparing to serve his full-time LDS mission.
