So… it’s been a bit since I’ve actually blogged a session! Honestly, life just got crazy like it always does and when stuff like that happens, blogging is the first thing to take a back seat. Since the last time I’ve blogged, we’ve added another hilarious/crazy little girl to our family, my husband graduated, I’ve shot another 40+ weddings and countless other sessions and I’ve loved every minute of it! I know I’m always saying this, but seriously, thank you thank you to everyone that has trusted me with all of their once in a lifetime moments. I can’t believe how lucky I am to do the job that I do. This year marks 10 years since I shot my first wedding and started doing this professionally and I seriously can’t even wrap my brain around that. Now that we’ve hit 2020 and I’ve been thinking about resolutions and all of that, I definitely put sharing my sessions at the top of my “Must do this thing!” list. I love sharing people’s stories behind the camera, but there is so much more to it and blogging/instagramming can add another layer to that.
Now that I’ve been doing this for a while, one of my favorite things is watching my early senior session clients getting married, and starting families of their own, so there’s no better place to start the blog back up then this perfect couple!
Lizzy actually grew up next door to me. Her mom was my young women’s leader (and one of my favorite people ever) and Lizzy is honestly one of the sweetest, most caring people you will ever meet and one of my favorite people ever. I did her senior photos WAY back when, so when she got engaged to Spencer, and asked if I was available to photograph her wedding, I was more then a little excited! I was also pretty interested to meet her fiancé, Spencer since he’d have to be pretty dang perfect to have won Lizzy! We met at the Utah State Capitol building for some first look photos and Spencer had me laughing within the first 2 minutes I met him. I think their first look photos speak for themselves too. Spencer ADORES Lizzy and I smiled through the entire shoot watching them together. Spencer also gained some major bonus points in my book when I noticed his amazing Stockton/Malone Utah Jazz socks! The entire shoot was freezing cold (getting married in January will do that to you) but these 2 made the whole thing a party. We started at the Capitol building, then ended up wrapping up the shoot on a rooftop in downtown Salt Lake City which I think fit this classy couple perfectly!
Lizzy and Spencer celebrated their 1 year Anniversary a couple of days ago and it was so fun reliving their wedding day going through these pics. They were married in the Mt Timpanogos temple on January 12th and had so many people there to celebrate them! I loved their giant wedding party (and the O so classy Black and White color scheme!)
After some quick photos around the temple, it was off to Noah’s Event Center for an awesome party to wrap up the perfect day! I think my favorite part of the evening was how they did their dancing. I LOVE dancing photos, but sometimes it’s hard to get everyone’s reactions to things during the dancing when everyone is in a big circle. Lizzy and Spencer had everyone line up and everyone got to show off their moves, and it made my job so much easier!
Happy Belated Anniversary to these 2! Thanks for starting my blog revamp on the right note!
