So I thought in honor of Valentines Day and the kick off to wedding season we ought to do a contest to showcase all those gorgeous couples out there just kicking off their lives together. (Or who just got engaged, say maybe even today! *Wink Wink*) The winner will receive a free engagement session from yours truly. Free. Did we remember to say free?

Amelia and Spencer are one of those couples for which the 'click' sound was probably audible to everyone around to witness them meet. They met in the MTC and proceeded to write to one another the rest of their missions. When Spencer came home from his mission, he got home to California, said, 'nice to see you mom, love you, gotta go to Utah about a girl!' From their it was just finalizing the details! There's no doubt in my mind that these guys are a match made in heaven.
Resuming some much delayed blogging with the adorable Perkins family. It's always a pleasure to update someone's family photo. I know how important it is for me, to mark these years and it's a something I hope they can treasure years down the road. For the Perkins' their eldest daughter was headed off to College! Wowza, so mom knew she needed to take this opportunity before life gets really scattered and crazy to get pictures of them all together at the cusp of this big change. Such an adorable family, such a love for each other. Such a beautiful day!

Schedules a spot soon!
Alec and Lindsey probably THOUGHT when they planned a late spring wedding that with a little luck it might be warm, mayyybbbee rain, but I doubt snow was on the horizon. Still you have to admit, odd as it was late late late in April that it was very beautiful coming down. Lindsey showed off a little of her sassy side as she excited the temple to the slowly falling snow, and Alec told me later she fools people into thinking there's no sassy side, but she can get crazy with the best of them. Huh, who knew, lol! They had such a fun party with Cookies and Kisses and a whole town in attendance. Being they grew up in the same area, there was a lot of people from the area who knew the couple and came to give their warm wishes. Check out the beautiful reception they put together below....
Jeremy & Sherri's wedding day was a celebration of happiness. They were married on a slightly chilly day at the Logan Temple, but no one seemed to notice. Then I joined them for a party and Logan Golf and Country Club and it was warm and beautiful and there was cake, so let's be real, that's an awesome day, amirite?! These two surprised me, because they said they were NOT cake smashers... but peer pressure or whatever and they caved, haha. Jeremy comes from a small town here in Northern Utah and so of course that means... the whole town turned out! The more the merrier! Enjoy a brief skip through their day below!
I realized I never blogged these. And even though I'm not actually caught up on the blog, haha, I thought I'd just randomly throw these in. I was doing some file maintenance lately, deciding what to clear of my computer, what to put on drives, etc and I saw these and remembered how cute they were. And I'm not biased. No not at all...the fact that she's my only daughter doesn't factor in here! ;p So here's a little ray of sunshine, on what here and now at least, is a VERY dreary day!
Alec & Lindsey absolutely killed these photos, beautiful day, beautiful couple. We spent some lovely moments prior to their wedding, revealing the dress and walking around the grounds of the temple on a beautiful spring day. I love when the magnolia trees on the grounds have that beautiful purpley/pink flowers are all over. We had such a lovely day and so relaxed as compared to a wedding day which is a little more fast paced! In edition, their wedding day, though it was a couple weeks after this, had a crazy freak snow storm! lol! You never know what mother nature has in store for you! But seeerrrriously, check out this day, and this crazy beautiful couple! So pretty! :)
Jeremy & Sherrie wanted to get together for a 'first look' and a formals shoot prior to the wedding. This is always my favorite way to do it. It's a great way to have a relaxed and private moment to see each other for the first time in the dress & suit. It's a great way to clear up your wedding day of an extended portrait session and yet still get those momento photos to cherish on your anniversaries for years to come, to show to your kids, and let them laugh at the fashion of 20 years before, lol. These two are just too nice, and so great to just try anything and go with whatever. One of the least fussy brides you'll meet, she's even wearing her sister-in-law to be's dress because she's also very practical! I asked Jeremy if that meant he knew what the dress looked like and he said,...
Alec & Lindsey went out for the first time in High School - dated here and there. They grew up close, in the same Stake. Then they went and spread their wings, both serving LDS missions outside their small towns. Back in Utah and ready to mingle, and maybe they could have met someone new, but why when they already knew someone great! ;) They got back in touch and it just plain worked! This session was beautiful and so fun. Snow isn't the easiest to work with sometimes logistically, but its beauty never disappoints! I love these two, we have some beautiful sessions ahead to highlight on this blog!
