Utah Fine Art Wedding and Portrait Photographer bio picture

    My mom told me I could be anything I wanted to be. "Even Big Bird?" I asked. I remember her scrunching up her face and giving my question a dubious moment of thought. Then she nodded. "Yeah, I suppose if you wanted, you could apply to be on Sesame Street to dress up in a big yellow bird costume." At the time I was five and didn't know Big Bird was a giant puppet. Sure, part of my little-kid brain was blown by finding out the yellow guy wasn't real, but somehow the rest of what my mom said took root inside of me.

    I could be whatever I wanted to be.

    Like a Teacher. I once taught high school English. (Brief stint. Though true.)

    Or a fitness instructor. (I have a love/hate relationship with crossfit.)

    Or, if I wanted, I could be an author that writes fantasy novels about a fierce girl that hunts her father's murderer while evading soldiers out for her blood. Check out my novel, published by Harcourt Children's Publishing on Goodreads.

    I could be a designer. (A Photoshop wizard, if you will) Visit EVER SMITTEN Actions where the presets and actions used to edit my images are available.

    I could be a photographer.
    I've been a wedding photographer for 9 years. I've shot all through out the United States, as well as internationally.
    Of all my interests, photography to me is like a pair of old sweats. It's been with me for years and I'll keep it close for years to come. Happiness is my Nikon, a Coke Zero, and a great haunt to shoot.

    So here's to big yellow birds and life lessons at an early age that have blessed me with so many fulfilling interests and given me a curiously creative appetite. Come on in and stay awhile.

Utah Wedding Photographer | Timon + Erin

Timon and Erin married when the weather was so much warmer, but since I’m rebuilding my site, I get to go through their pictures and fall in love all over again. They married in Draper, which is the loveliest place. It’s so serene and beautiful there. Their wedding photography was a dream in the bright sun and nice breeze up on the Draper bench. After the wedding ceremony they had a beautiful garden reception, which I loved shooting. I included some of their details in this gallery. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite’s from their day.

Utah Wedding Photographer | Sidney + Regan | American Fork Canyon

This gorgeous setting is one of my favorites in all of Utah for bridal photography. I took Sidney and Regan up American Fork Canyon to take pictures in the quaky trees. Then we stopped along the benches of Utah county where the overgrown fall weeds were the perfect soft touch for Sid’s vintage-esque style. Sidney and Regan looked absolutely stunning in their formal session.

If you haven’t booked a formal session, I would suggest every bride look into doing one for a couple reasons. First, you only wear your dress once. A formal session gives you a chance to wear it on another day besides your wedding day. Second, you never know what the weather will be like on your wedding day or what possible problems may arise. When you do a formal session, you have more control over the outcome of your images. And what bride doesn’t want gorgeous images of her in her dress with her groom?

If seeing your groom before your wedding day isn’t your style, you can always do a formal session after your wedding day.

For more information on formal sessions, send me an inquiry through the contact section of this site.

Utah Wedding Photographer | Conrad Ranch

Jessie and Derek’s formal session was captured in the fall at this captivating location. Conrad Ranch is nestled in Provo Canyon. It’s one of those hidden gems that is perfect for a Utah bridal shoot. The pond is equipped with the most darling canoe, and the gazebo makes a gorgeous romantic backdrop. I love everything about Conrad Ranch. Here are some of my favorite images from Jessie and Derek’s wedding! If you do head up there, my tip of the day is to bring along bug spray.
