I have been a little backlogged the last little while and my personal projects, like this blog, have had to take a backseat to more important things. Mike and Hillary met at their work. They quickly became best friends. What better thing, than to marry your best friend. I am that lucky.
We shot their engagement pictures back in June at Snowbasin, Utah. It was gorgeous! It was also raining most of the time. These two were troopers. They got wet and muddy and smiled through the whole thing. I believe it was worth it. The pictures turned out fantastic. I am going to keep these short as I am working the engagement, bridal, and wedding all into one post.
We shot Hillary’s bridals in August. It was hot but we started early enough that it wasn’t too bad. Hillary has the most amazing personality. She is always happy and has a great outlook on life. We met in North Ogden at The Barn golf course. I am a big fan of ivy in pictures and luckily I found some.
The wedding was on September 5th back at Snowbasin. I had not been up there for a long time and had not seen all of the changes brought about by the Winter Olympics back in 2002. A lot had changed. It is a really nice place. We traveled up the gondola to the Needles Lodge for the ceremony. The view was majestic from the patio where the ceremony was held. After the ceremony a small storm front moved in and it got a little windy. Not much fun for pictures. Back down the gondola we went for the dinner and reception at Earl’s Lodge. The food was delicious. The reception was fun. Hillary’s nephew was a riot. He liked to see if he could get his hands up in front of his face before I got a picture. Looks like I won and I hope he likes seeing the proof in this blog.
