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!

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. Most of you probably don’t remember the song but it brings back a lot of childhood memories for me. Yes, I must be getting old. It is bound to happen to all of us eventually. I have lots of fun and exciting things coming up in the next few months. Lots of weddings, engagement sessions and bridal sessions. The last bridal show I participated in was so successful that I have decided to do it again. It will be at the Southtown Expo Center on April 17th. Here is a link for more info http://utahbridalshows.com/. I hope to see some of you there.

Well, on to the task at hand. I met Stacie, her mom and her friend at Temple Square in Salt Lake City to shoot her bridal pictures. It was cold and rainy. Most brides would call it their worst nightmare. Stacie was awesome! Not one complaint and she had fun. If you look closely below you can actually see raindrops streaking down and goose bumps on her arms in some of the pictures.

I just finished designing this album of Matt and Katherine’s wedding at the LDS Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am using these to order a sample from my new wedding book vendor, Kiss. As soon as they arrive I will do a post of the final product. I ordered a 12×12″ and a Little Kiss 4×4″. They should be here in a few weeks if anyone wants to see them up close and personal. I can’t wait to see them! I will be designing another book soon and will post that one as well. Thanks for looking….

Matt called me from Idaho a little while back and asked me if I had October 17th open. He and Katherine were coming down to the Salt Lake City, Utah LDS Temple to get married. I love shooting around Temple Square. There are so many great locations. They were a blast to work with. Katherine didn’t speak great English and I don’t speak great Spanish. Luckily Matt was there to translate. For some reason it is easier to say things to get someone to smile when it has to go through a translator. You don’t feel like you are the one actually saying them. It was the translator, right? Anyway, I am doing this late at night again and I am probably making little sense. There are a lot this time. Enjoy!
