This wonderful opportunity fell in my lap. I got a call from Sara’s (the bride) mom, saying she wanted me to take her daughters wedding photos. Her daughter was currently living in Japan and since her fiancé was Japanese, they would be flying home for the wedding and to take care of last minute details but her mama was laying all the ground work. What a mama! I got to meet Sara just one week before the wedding. She was already aglow and excited. We discussed the fine points and expectations and then parted ways. A week later it was show time. Even amidst the wedding day craziness that inevitably can rattle a bride, Sara remained calm and simply joyful. I was able to meet Shugo (the groom), who was so polite and so in love with Sara. He was simply delighted to have the opportunity to make Sara his wife. They put on their game faces for photos and we did posed as well as silly ones that really made you see them for the fun couple they are.

The Cannon’s are my family away from family. I have known Ashley for over a decade as the sister of one of my longtime best friends, Kristi. I didn’t meet Matt until I took their engagements but I am so happy they found each other. They make me laugh until my sides hurt! They enjoy goofing off together and you can tell that they will have one of those marriages that was based first on a phenomenal friendship that will last for a lifetime. It was truly the most relaxing wedding I have ever photographed and I sure got an ab workout during the portrait session at the temple from all of the laughing they had me doing. Thanks for a great day and the opportunity to capture your love!

You could see it in their eyes at the altar…Love.  Adam and Heidi adore each other, and amid all of the last minute flurries and frustrations that every wedding brings on the bride, Heidi shined with excitement.  She could not wait to become Mrs. Adam Jeppsen and I could tell that she considered herself the luckiest girl in the world.  Adam played it cool for most of the prep but no one could miss how happy he was when Heidi walked down the aisle and pledged to love him for the rest of her life. It was a beautiful wedding surrounded by family and friends, what a joy!

I had the amazing privilege of photographing my first wedding with the Chang family.  It was so sweet to be able to capture the love of this couple and their family.  Sena, the bride, was a little shy at first.  She sure didn’t see my whirlwind of craziness coming (poor girl).  I watched as this lovely woman tried her utmost to please those around her, including myself, never realizing that it was our job to please her!  I gained the utmost respect for her throughout the day as I watched her deal with the day’s ups and downs.  You could see how much she adored Injae (the groom), and how happy she was once the actual wedding was complete and she could breathe again  It was so cute to watch Injae express his love for her and try to take away any nervousness before the ceremony.  I especially enjoyed the Korean traditions expressed throughout the wedding, which displayed a reverence and respect for both family and God.
