Just a heads up that I will be out of town until February 5th. All emails and phone calls will be returned when I get back.

Isn't Jena one of the most beautiful girls you have ever seen? Taking her pictures stopped my breath a few times. Have your heart set on this fur jacket? It belongs to my sister so I can use it for shoots whenever I want!

Hair and makeup by Amber Escobar. She is great, and I have her contact info if you need a great on-site stylist for your wedding or any other big day!

Check out a feature about Whimsy Floral on! You'll see some of my pictures, and perhaps you will get carried away checking out this beautiful blog while you are at it!

Liz of Whimsy Floral is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. I applied for a floral assistant position with her almost three years ago because I no longer wanted a bridal bouquet to be a mystery to me. What I ended up learning from Liz has little to do with flowers, and not because she didn't try to teach me that. We learned quickly that I just wasn't cutting it when it came to making a perfect corsage. However, she still lets me tag along with her to beautiful events and help her set up and then take pictures of her amazing work.

Liz is truly the most professional wedding vendor I have ever worked with. I have seen her fix cakes, make extra centerpieces, bouts and corsages on site. She also always goes out of her way to fix anything even if it isn't her fault. Her work is FLAWLESS in pictures, but also, more importantly, in person. She also isn't stuck in a box of her own vision, but can make any bride's vision a reality. ALL of her work is totally unique to the brides. Plus, she is just one of those "real" people.

Liz needed a headshot and so she popped over to my house so I could snap a few pics of her. Isn't she adorable? I know, on top of everything else she is cute.

I can't thank Liz enough for how much she has taught me. How lucky am I that she has allowed me into her little world? I hope she forgives me for posting this picture.

Bella is just as her name implies--beautiful. This didn't surprise me as I had already shot Mom's stunning maternity pictures back in November. Of course her daughter would be just as lovely as she was. At three weeks old, Bella was a perfect model, especially when she had her binky or her mama.

Ryan's sister is a very talented photographer who said that she would take all of the wedding pictures except for the reception, because she just wanted to be a guest. Ryan gave her a list of photographers that he found and she told him to hire me. I was very flattered because any time another photographer thinks highly of your work it is always a very nice compliment.

Coming into this reception, not knowing anyone really could have been very daunting. But this family was lovely and warm from the start. It was a terribly snowy and icy night on the roads, but the guests kept rolling in. After I got to know them, it was no surprise to me that these families would have many who would want to wish them well on such a night. I had a delightful time. Thanks Olivia and Ryan for having me out to Bountiful. Even though I got lost again on my way there (Bountiful, curses to you and Google Maps for getting me lost), I had a great time.
