Kage & Hannah Meet Hannah & Kage!! I actually captured Hannahs older sister wedding this past summer so I was super excited when she contacted me about capturing engagements pictures for her. Kage is in the Air Force he is like the movie Top Gun and is a super cool flightier pilot. These two had a small window to get some pictures taken and I am so glad it worked out I later found out that after these pictures were taken they ended up getting married that night because of all the craziness with being in the military and Kage heading to England!! So Congrats to these two!! <3 They are going to have so many amazing adventures together living in England.

Madi & Preston Zions Bridals Madi & Preston are such a fun couple. So story time we drove from St.George to Zions National Park which is about a 45 minute drive well we were doing a first look so Preston had his tie wrapped around his eyes the whole ride up and its a pretty windee road! Talk about a trooper! Once we got there we were looking for some shade to do the first look and found these cute buildings so we did the first look and were take a few more pictures when a park ranger came over and was asking us who owned the car long story short we got kicked out but luckily we had already finished the first look. So we then headed into the park and realized we had to catch the bus in there wedding attire to the location we were wanting so we took the bus to the weeping willow rock which was amazing with a huge waterfall. Zions National Park is an amazing location and it helped that I had great models. (;

Erin & Bryce

I grew up with Erin so when she asked me to Photograph her wedding I was so excited! Mindy (Erins Mom) and my mom are best friends so it was tons of fun getting to all work together! We started with fall engagements at toniquet park one of my very favorite locations in St.George. We captured so many great shots of the two of them together. For bridals we headed to Lake Las Vegas and shot at the Hilton Hotel and let me tell you I fell in love with this location. I was like a little kid at the candy store, there was so many places to shoot. We took some breathtaking images that have definitely became favorites. The wedding was on October 28th and it was magical! Erin was a beautiful bride and it melted my heart to way that Bryce looked at her. It was an overcast day at the Las Vegas Temple which made for the best lighting. And for the reception we had a perfect night with delicious food, the cutest decorations like seriously it was amazing it look straight out of a magazine, lots of fun dancing, amazing singing and love! I had the best time photographing these two and being apart of their big day!
