Cecilia & Evan {Wedding Photography}

Cecilia and Evan’s wedding day dawned sunny & hot. Taking place at the Overlook Lodge at Rim River Ranch, the venue is set back from the highway by a long private drive. Indicative of its name, the Overlook Lodge and grounds oversee a beautiful river-filled valley and acres of farm land.

I’ve never seen a bride so involved with all the details of her wedding day. They set up the dinner area and decorated the lodge the evening before. The lodge has a beautiful view of the Tetons.

Bridal Preparation is one of my favorite things to photograph and be involved in. The atmosphere is filled with love and excitement with just a touch of nerves and a whole lot of emotion (and some happy tears!)

I snuck away for a few minutes once the cake arrived to snag some shots of this masterpiece. I loved the theme surrounding their wedding cake and just how natural and beautiful everything looked.

The bride’s floral hair wreath was to die for! I love images of brides with floral wreaths, so you can imagine my happiness when I found out she was wearing one!

Cecilia was so involved in the little details, that as part of the bridal prep, she, along with her bridesmaids wrapped their flowers. The arrangements had been put together and rubber banded, but they put on the finishing wire and tape. What a fun memory this will be for them all!

Time to get in the dress! Mom Melissa, joined the bridesmaids in helping Cecilia get into her dress. And getting all the buttons done up turned out to be a bit of a challenge.

I had to include this shot! Cecilia & Evan had their friend Andrew second shoot the wedding and that part of the balcony was our best friend during the ceremony ūüôā

My favorite part of any wedding is when I get to take the bride and groom off on their own and do their formal portraits. I love this alone time that I get to spend with them capturing the essence of their wedding day. But I also think sometimes its a nice break for them too where they can relax a little from all the chaos that reigns on wedding days (even in the calmest of weddings there is always stress) and let them just focus on one another.

Kylie & Devon {Rexburg Engagement Photographer}

On Saturday we beat the rain and stuck around town to capture this beautiful couple’s engagements. Devon flew in for the weekend (and pictures) so I am glad we moved our session time up and didn’t get poured on. While we wanted to use some other locations, the rain last week made some areas too muddy for us, and the approaching rain storm left Idaho Falls out of the¬†options.

Kylie is absolutely stunning and her baby blues perfectly complement Devon’s brown eyes. ¬†This couple coordinates their outfits without being ‘matchy matchy’ -They have complementing colors, patterns, and textures.¬†We caught some flowering trees at the tabernacle, some of the last ones left.

Congratulations Kylie & Devon on your engagement and your upcoming wedding in August!

Robb Maternity {Rexburg Maternity Photographer}

I love this little family! Kiersten and I serve together on a church committee and she is a wonderful example to me of service and love. Their little family is growing in just a few short weeks and I am so excited for them! ¬†I am so glad the rain stayed away long enough for us to do their shoot in the blooming orchards today. Thank you Robb family for letting me have some ‘me’ time and photograph your family ūüôā

Aaron & Savanah

We had all sorts of weather for this engagement session. A little wind, snow, sunshine Рit was kind of crazy! I am so glad I got to meet and work with Aaron & Savanah. They were such a fun couple to works with and took direction so well. I love it when couples come with a few ideas of their own Рsee twirling photos!

H. Family {Salt Lake Family Photographer}

My husband and I traveled down to the Salt Lake area for a career conference to find¬†internships, etc. before graduating. We got to spend some much needed time with my sister and her family while we were there, and of course had to do pictures! Love this little family so much, they are just so adorable! Can’t wait for our babies to be besties!

Jared & Brooke {Rexburg Wedding Photographer}

I get to work with really beautiful and amazing people. Seriously though. When I first met Jared and Brooke I knew they would be a blast to work with, and you could tell they were just so genuinely happy to be around each other. As is par for the course in Rexburg during the winter, these two had to really brave some cold weather during their bridal session. Guen came along to shoot with me and we got some really great shots! We headed up to one of my favorite places EVER to photograph the majority of their bridals…

Haley & Kyler {Rexburg, Idaho Wedding Photographer}

Oh how I loved meeting this bride and groom! You can tell they are just so excited to be married!

Their day was a little hectic –¬†I filled in for their wedding photographer who was injured the night before and unable to make it. I am so glad I was able to help out this photographer – and I would hope someone would do the same for me if I was in that position! It makes me super grateful for the great community of photographers we have here, and I will miss if we ever leave! It was kind of crazy going to the temple and not knowing what my bride & groom really looked like – and knowing they didn’t know me at all!

Rexburg decided to snow like crazy that day, but it was a beautiful day! ¬†Haley’s dress was absolutely stunning, and her bridesmaids dresses were so fun! I am a total sucker for the gray suits the guys were sporting, I love how classy they look.

They were total champs dealing with the cold and snow. It was hard to step back and realize that their photographer had already done bridals and I didn’t need to capture very many for them – I just love working with brides and grooms!

Milo & Kelee {Rexburg Engagement Photographer}

A year or so ago I took some portraits of Milo – a few weeks ago I got to take his & Kelee’s engagement photos! I loved working with them as they braved the bitter cold¬†for their session. They were total troopers and we got great photos!

C. Fall Photos {Rexburg Family Photographer}

Umm this family is sooo adorable. Seriously it’s ridiculous! I remember last year doing couple photos with them to announce they were pregnant with their little one! Then I was privileged to be there as little Tesla made her entrance into the world and Tommy & Rebekah¬†got to hold her! I loved photographing them for their fall photos – so in love with these pics!
