The Boneville Salt Flats are best known for their perfectly flat stretches which are used for breaking land speed records with anything with wheels. The stark feel of white that goes on forever to the mountains in the background make for an absolutely unique and stunning environment. It was an absolutely beautiful backdrop for Taylour and Zachary’s bridal photo session. That being said it was also the windiest session I have ever shot in. The wind was a constant 40mph plus, making communicating and photographing a challenge… but an awesome one. Beyond the wind it was also freezing out. Taylour did such an amazing job toughing out the elements and keeping a great attitude. We ended up having a great time and getting some really spectacular photos to remember the day. Im looking forward to their wedding in Salt Lake City soon!
Photographing Carol Ann and Austin’s wedding at the Payson Temple was absolutely amazing. It was a blue sky day that was on the windy side, but still absolutely beautiful. Driving on the 15 towards Salt Lake I always see the Payson Temple and stare in amazement at how stunning it is. During the day it is a beautiful building, and then at night with the lights all around it the temple really becomes jaw dropping! I was so thrilled when Carol Ann contacted me about photographing her wedding! I had photographed her sisters engagement photos in Zion, and then wedding in San Diego at the temple there a year or two prior. This was when I first met Carol Ann. She came with us on the bridal session at the Cove in La Jolla for her sister. Carol Ann was an absolute joy to have around. So funny and personable! Fast forward to Carol Ann and Austin’s engagement session in the snow of provo this winter. Austin was every bit as fun and witty as Carol Ann. We had an absolute blast together! These two make for such a dynamic couple. After that we met up again for their bridals at Tibble Fork Reservoir. Again we shot in the snow, but again had an awesome time. I absolutely loved each shoot with them and I knew their wedding day would be no different. The two were sealed in the Payson Utah Temple and then had their reception at Cactus and Tropicals in South Salt Lake. We walked around the Payson Temple getting photographing some really fun and unique moments. This was my first time shooting at the Payson Temple. I made it a point not to see what others had photographed before me there. I wanted to come into it and just photograph it how it came naturally to me. The day was beautiful, the Payson Temple was a dream, and Carol Ann and Austin were incredible!
