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 🙂

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.

NaeDene Bridals {Rexburg Bridal Photographer}

In the hubbub of a very busy few weeks followed by the birth of my child, I completely missed out on posting NaeDene’s bridals! I absolutely love NaeDene, she is so fun and genuine and beautiful. NaeDene was one of my first clients 4 years ago, and since then I’ve had the privilege to photograph her a few times. I was absolutely thrilled when she requested a bridal session with me. She is absolutely stunning in her dress and we had perfect weather (photographer’s love when the weather is spot on for their sessions if you can’t tell!).

We photographed Jose’s portraits in Idaho Falls. He knew exactly where he wanted his basketball photos taken, and it turned out to be the perfect place for them! I also loved using the alleys for his shoot!
