We were blessed by angels. We had perfect weather, lighting and people.
Last month, Madie Lyons (BYU Soccer) and Mitch Mathews (NFL Football) ((Talk about couple goals)) ventured out to the middle of nowhere to get some amazing shots of their first time seeing each other in their wedding attire. It was honestly one of the most beautiful sights I’ve seen.
But getting there, thats another story. It was an almost three-hour drive west of Salt Lake City on the way to Nevada, passing through a white, salty, tundra-looking landscape for most of the drive. WORTH IT
There was only one exit every 10-20 miles on this freeway, so if you missed the turn off you wanted, you would have to drive for a good amount of time before you could get off again, drive backwards, and then drive forward again hoping you didn’t miss it a second time. It was a little tricky figuring out how to get to each other, but after a little frogger action across a busy freeway with a wedding dress and a GIANT bouquet, we made it!!
The lighting was gorgeous, the couple was amazing, and we had an amazing shoot!
Check it out below!!
I asked for an adventurous couple, and boy did I get one. I love people like this, people that will do anything and not worry that its awkward or that they’ll ruin their clothes and fall down. As a candid photographer, you come up with some pretty strange terminology to get the pictures you want… such as: smell her shampoo, throw her around, whisper sweet nothings, frolick through that field, play with his face… etc.
This is Jenelle and Elijah. They are a sweet couple living here in Provo and I could not have asked for a more fun, easy-going couple!
A week ago, Cody and I were on a drive and decided to turn down a quad road by the lake, and we hit the jackpot! We stumbled upon this abandoned adorable yellow boat docked on the side of the lake!! Its too good of a spot to not have an adorable couple shot there! VIDEO BELOW!!
HUGE thanks to Foxglove Utah for making my dreams come true! They volunteered to be apart of this shoot the day before and really pulled through. I sent them an inspiration Pinterest picture and they made it EVEN BETTER!!! Major props to Foxglove.
