The White Shanty | Salt Lake City Utah Bridals Photographers

While out in Utah for an amazing elopement alongside Happy Camper Films and State & Arrow, we felt as though we should try to create as much as possible. Utah not only has some of the most gorgeous land I have laid eyes on, but it also has a great deal of amazing venues as well. The White Shanty is one of them. State & Arrow Design Co. led this vision and I happily jumped on board. A few elements almost didn’t align, leading us to calling this shoot off multiple times before we realized we could just maybe pull it off. Seeing State & Arrow work their floral magic while driving to the venue was quite the treat. needless to say, these ladies are pretty freakin’ talented.

This bridal shoot was all about simplicity. Everything from the bride’s hair and make up, to the chic Lilian West gown from The Couture Closet she wore seemed to give off a perfectly, effortless vibe.

Anna & Colten | Antelope Island, Salt Lake City, Utah Ethereal Bridals Photographers

I had this rough vision floating around in my mind of an ethereal, bohemian bridal session that I just had to bring to life while in Utah. Originally planning to head to The Salt Flats, Antelope Island ended up being our destination of choice for a number of reasons. Anna & Colten were THE perfect models to bring my dreamy editorial styled shoot to life. I luckily had the help from my friends at State and Arrow to provide the most magical bouquet you see below. This landscape on this island is truly unlreal. You feel like you are driving through multiple countries within a few miles of traveling around the island. Anyone want to elope there for real?? I’m ready.

ugh vision for a while

Sarah & Scott | Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab, Utah Elopement Photographers

Sarah and Scott are the epitome of an adventurous couple + possibly the most laid back couple in the world. Upon first contact, I knew we were meant to work together. They were ready to throw traditions to the wind and start off marriage with an adventure. They may not have known exactly where they wanted to get married, but they did know the only witnesses they needed beside them were their dogs, Goose + Tag. Not surprising since they own Pet Station Country Club in Louisville, a boarding and daycare service for pets. Other fun facts about them include they love binge-watching + quoting The Office (but who doesn’t??), they adorably nicknamed themselves #sbsquared since both of their initials are “SB”, and since they roadtripped outwest for their elopement, they ended their trip with a honeymoon skiing trip to Breckenridge, CO.  

Although originally thinking about heading to the mountains for their elopement, Sarah and Scott were open to suggestions on epic locations. I helped throw out some location ideas, which lead to Sarah & Scott falling in love with the idea of saying their vows in Moab, Utah. Fast forward a bit and there they were at the edge of a cliff at Dead Horse State Park in Moab, Utah ready to embark on this new and exciting journey, marriage.

There is something so simple, yet magical about the vast desert, and the view overlooking Dead Horse State Park was nothing short of spectacular. Yet the view somewhow seemed to become inferior to Sarah and Scott as they began to read their heartfelt vows to one another. Tears of happiness, lots of smiles, and a few laughs ensued as they laid out each commitment to one another. Their dogs, who patiently watched along each side of them, perked up with excitement as their mom and dad officially became a family.

We ended the evening with an epic portrait session, soaking up the last bit of sun during the most magical sunset. I am beyond glad these two had plenty of time to soak in all of the beauty with their pups by their side. To top things off, I headed to Moab diner for a night cap with our newlywed couple and the rest of our killer team. Did we all just become best friends?? Yup.

Lastly, I have to brag on the incredible team that helped pull off this amazing elopement. I got to travel with a kickass crew of creatives who all helped make the day perfection. Tyler and Allison of Happy Camper Films + Jamie and Adria with State & Arrow Design Co were alongside me and I am truly thankful to have been able to enjoy their talent & their company.

Baylee & Birch | Anniversary Session Louisville, Kentucky Wedding Photographers

This past fall I had the pleasure of photographing Baylee & Birch for an anniversary session. Their sweet, playful love and the amazing light that evening could not have been a better combination. I recently found out that these two are expecting to grow their family by one this year! There is truly nothing better than watching my couples continue to start new adventures together.

Chloe & Stephen | Anniversary Session at Shaker Village in Harrodsburg, Kentucky

Chloe & Stephen have been married for six years and are the parents to two adorable young boys. These love birds decided to take a night to themselves, left the kiddos at home, and spent the evening bringing out the wild, playful love that started it all. I helped style their choice of attire, which was wedding-like, and was quite a contrast to the style they rocked six years ago on their wedding day. The bouquet by State & Arrow Design Co was 100% foraged the morning of the shoot and is easily my favorite floral bouquet to date. They also could not have matched the cotton candy sunset the sky painted for us that night!!

Married couples, I am giving you permission to highlight your love and growth. Everything that you all now are individually and as a couple. Marriage is a beautiful journey that should be highlighted throughout, not just at the beginning. 

Anniversary Sessions are slowly becoming my favorite time to adventure with my couples. Seeing their relationships grow and strengthen with the years is an amazing thing to witness. If you are interested in an anniversary session or an intimate vow renewal, I would LOVE to be a part of it. I even offer packaging options with styling and planning included. I love making beautiful sessions like this happen and am happy to help however I can!
