Lately+Exciting News!!

Hi everyone!! Oh my goodness this year is CRAZY! In the best way possible. So many things have happened and are in the works for this year and especially in the next few months that I can hardly believe it's happening! Next month I will be heading off to THAILAND! What started off as a spontaneous vacation with a couple girlfriends has turned into something much bigger. I'm heading there with one of my best friends Delaina who is an amazing videographer and has done the commercials with companies like Downeast and Limericki swimwear. And when Limericki heard we were heading out there they decided to pay for us to SHOOT THEIR SWIMSUITS out in Thailand!! So our trip has now pretty much been paid for and I keep pinching myself because it seems so UNREAL!! Our beautiful friend Chanelle will be heading out there with us to model and have an amazing girls trip/business trip now! SO. CRAZY.  The stuff we have planned is out of this world. I can't wait (but I am totally terrified about the 15 hour plane ride over open ocean. I could literally throw up and panic thinking about it. Anyone else have a fear of planes and deep ocean??)

This is the only picture I have of Delaina, Chanelle and I so far and Delaina is pregnant with baby Max and we are all sunburned ha ha ha!! 

Second, a couple weeks after Thailand Tyler and I will be heading to Northern England to shoot an amazing wedding for seriously the best couple! We are flying into Edinburgh a day or so before to see a bit of Scotland and then the wedding is split into two days! The ceremony will be held at an old, beautiful church that holds a lot of sentimental value to the bride! Her grandparents AND great grandparents were married there as well! And then the reception will be held at ALNWICK CASTLE the following day. Which is the same castle the first two HARRY POTTER MOVIES WERE SHOT AT. I literally die. If there's one thing you should know about Tyler and I, it's that we are die-hard Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Disney fans. So this is seriously just a dream come true! It's going to be such an incredible wedding! After the wedding we will be heading out to Paris for a few days and then a day in London before we head back home! I've been begging Tyler to travel to Europe with me ever since we got married so when we were already going to be out there for the wedding I totally roped him into staying a bit longer! ha ha! Gotta put my Art History degree to use somehow right? 

At the end of last year I was able to shoot a nine page editorial for Utah Valley Bride Magazine! This has been one of my dreams since I first decided to become a photographer and started collecting this magazine long before I was engaged ha ha! When I found out they wanted me to do it I cried so many happy tears and literally jumped up and down. I couldn't believe it! It was such an honor to be a part of something so amazing! And to top it off, one of my favorite weddings last year was chosen to be published as well. My bride Mallory is DARLING and do yourself a favor and follow her cooking instagram @smallkitchenscout if you are needing killer and budget friendly dinners! She is hilarious, obsessed with diet coke, and insanely good at cooking. I absolutely SUCK at cooking so her instagram has helped me immensely! 


I also have some shoots and personal projects in the works that I'm super excited about! It is aiming up to be such an incredible and unforgettable wedding season and year!

Family Pics!!

We haven't had professional pictures taken since our wedding!! (Unless you count me with a tripod and a timer ha ha ha!) So when Kathryn Bruns asked us if we wanted a mini session I was SO EXCITED!! I met Kat at Photo Native last year and she is so darling and talented! We basically hung out the whole time and became quick friends! I love these! Especially since Rosie was able to be in them as well! Thanks so much Kat!! I'm going to try to be better at taking family pics every year instead of once every three ha ha ha ha!!

New HOUSE and Christmas Time!

This post is so long overdue but here's a little look at Tyler and I's new house!! We are home for the holidays... literally ha ha ha. The whole process of buying/building a house was so terrifying and exciting at the same time. But there's not a day that goes by where we are not extremely grateful for the way that things turned out. We could not feel more blessed or happy. 

I only have a handful of photos from when we moved in until now and most of them are of holiday decorations ha ha!! So these pictures jump from Halloween to Christmas super fast! We've only really focused on decorated and furnishing the first floor of the house so I'll have to document the rest when we start focusing on the other rooms (which probably won't be for a while) Downpayment's are freaking expensive folks! We finally just bought a washer and dryer (halle-freaking-lujah) Special shoutout to k-wood and Scotty for letting us use theirs ha ha!! Best parents ever! But as you can tell my favorite colors ever for pretty much everything are shades of blue+turquoise, white, black, gold, and shades of grey! 

It feels so good to be home for the holidays and I can't wait for many more Christmases to come in this home with our future kids! But we're more than happy with our little fur-child for right now (as you can tell by Rosie's personal stocking)

It's been a while since I've blogged but better late than never!! SO MUCH HAS BEEN GOING ON!! But I still need to blog about our amazing family trip to Hawaii first! This trip was SO MUCH FUN! Oh my goodness!! We had been planning this trip for months but sadly when Tyler got his job at Goldman Sachs we found out that he couldn't miss work for the first 6 months of working there so he wasn't able to come :( :( :( I was so devastated and wished he could have been there with all of my heart but it was still fun being with the rest of the family and going on crazy adventures! My brother made a killer video that I want to post later! We did so much on this trip! We went snorkeling, biked down a volcano, went cliff jumping like crazy everywhere we could, did the road to hana, and so much more!! It is a trip with my family I will always remember! 

missing Tyler :(
