I met Nick and Sonia Last Summer for Jamba Juices and discussed their wedding plans. A two day wedding. The first day would be a Greek wedding and the second day would be an Indian wedding. I was excited because I have photographed almost every other culture besides these two. I love photographing weddings of different cultures and sort of specialize in them. Not by choice, it just happened. I will be documenting their two day wedding next month and I can’t wait.

We shot their engagement session last Saturday in downtown Salt Lake City and started at the McCune Mansion. After that we ventured into the streets. Sonia’s bridal session will be following in the next few weeks. Keep an eye out for them.

Things have been so crazy over the last few months. Sorry for not being more on top of this blog. Sometimes it goes to the back burner as other things have to come first. Family and work are the first priority. After that, I have put my running closer to the front as my wife and I have several big races planned this year. We are running the Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay in just under two weeks. Then we will be running the Top of Utah Half Marathon, St. George marathon and then the Las Vegas Ragnar Relay. My wife and I put in for the St. George Marathon thinking we wouldn’t get in. We were not that lucky. We are now committed or maybe we should be committed? 🙂

Jamie and Alex were so great to work with. They are so laid back. It really made this wedding so much fun. The weather was looking questionable but turned out perfect. They were married in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple on March 11th, 2011 and they had their reception at the Eaglewood Event Center that evening. It was great being involved in the entire process. I got to shoot their engagement pictures, bridal pictures, wedding dinner, and their entire wedding day.

Never in all my years as a wedding photographer have I ever seen anything like this before. After cutting the cake, Jamie and Alex went to feed each other and Alex must have been a lot hungrier than anyone might have thought. He decided not to wait until Jamie had taken her fingers out of the way of his teeth before completely biting down. Please reference the pictures below for a great laugh!

I also had the privilege to work with one of my favorite wedding videographers again. Kale Fitch of Kale Fitch Productions. He is so creative and likeable. He really makes things fun. Please check out his video of the wedding here. I let him borrow my 45mm tilt shift lens for a few shots. It looks really cool with video. He also did their engagement video which you can see here.

The album turned out wonderful. They had so many pictures that they loved, we decided to do 20 album spreads instead of the standard 10. I can’t wait to see the finished product!

Here are a few of my favorites that didn’t make the album and then the album spreads. Bon Appetite!

I met with Erin and Joe a few weeks back to shoot their engagement session. Two very photogenic people for sure. Joe is a linebacker for the United Football League and played college football for the University of Kansas. Can you guess how Erin and Joe met? Of course Erin was a cheerleader. These two are so in love and are really down to earth. I had such a great time. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next year. I am sure it will be tons of fun. The first thing my wife said when she saw these pictures was “he has HUGE arms”. I said “yeah they are bigger than Erin’s”.  🙂 BTW, I am pretty jealous of Joe’s beard.

I met Chelsey and Seth at the Ogden Union Station Saturday morning. It had snowed a lot over night. I always go into situations like that hoping that we can make it work. I think we did okay. They were freezing the whole time and Seth spent most of the morning carrying Chelsey on his back so that her frozen feet would not get more wet than they did. He was a trooper and so was she. It was fun getting to know them. Chelsey likes to ride horses and Seth likes to play football and run. It looked to me like they were a perfect match and completely in love. I was honored to be their photographer. On to the pictures.
