[ Tess & Kaitlyn ]

This weekend I had the opportunity to photograph two beautiful women - Kaitlyn (on the left) and Tess (on the right). Both girls are from Heber City, Utah and both girls used to dance at the same studio. They are each such pretty women.


[ Events by LMG ]

Last night I was able to photograph decor, created by Mara Marian of Events by LMG. She was the wedding planner for a gorgeous wedding at The Grand America. Here are some of my favorite photographs from last night:

[ Zannah & Dave ]

Rain and snow made the Temple portion of this wedding pretty hectic ... Zannah and Dave were really good sports, though. I've posted photographs from their luncheon and their reception. Zannah had a vision - which was to make a gorgeous reception venue out of an empty concrete business floor on Main Street (rumor has it Goldman Sachs bought out the floor). Anyway, this was an incredible wedding with simple and elegant taste.


[ Provo LDS Temple ]

Yet another beautiful Temple, located along the base of the Wasatch Mountain Range.



Good news in the Olson family! Scott, my husband's brother, and his wife, JeNae are pregnant! Eeeek! We just found out the good news and couldn't be more ecstatic about it! This is their first ....... very exciting news.

Baby ______ is due early January.


[ Almost finished ]

This wedding was perfect. Remember it? Well, I'm almost through editing the photographs entirely and a large post will be coming soon!


[ boxing baby ]

This was so funny! Haley is already tougher than me at 4 weeks old! More to come from this baby shoot I photographed yesterday ...


[ Point Vicente Lighthouse ]

This lighthouse is located in Palos Verdes, CA. These cliffs are so beautiful! Click HERE to read all about the history of this lighthouse.


[ Patrick Badger ]

This portrait is from another fun high school senior portrait I've done recently. Such a handsome photograph ...


[ The Perfect Bench ]

This bench looks out onto the Pacific Ocean from the Santa Barbara bluffs. Such a perfectly good view of nothing and everything, all at the same time.


[ My beloved city ... ]

Santa Barbara. I love this city.


[ Aubry Pitcher ]

Aubry is about to graduate high school this week and soon enter the world of college. She will be attending the University of Utah for the music program, her specialty being the piano. There were plenty more photographs but these few are among my favorites.


[ Mustache's ]

Emily & Robert had a carnival themed reception the night before their wedding day. These mustaches were the perfect prop.


[ Collette & Steve ]

Collette and Steve were married March 19th, 2010. They had all their events right in Temple Square ... ceremony at the SLC LDS Temple and reception at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. It was a gorgeous wedding!

In case you're wondering who performed their ceremony (which you're probably not, but I'll tell you anyway), it was the one and only Elder M. Russell Ballard (He's an apostle in the LDS church). You'll see a photograph of him down towards the end of the post. How cool .... !!
