I’m SO excited to share this wedding! Thomas & Becky’s Black Canyon Inn wedding was one I’ll never forget. There were so many happy tears (many of them from me) and so much laughter! This day was filled with the sweetest moments, from Thomas and Becky’s first look, to the emotional dance Becky shared with […]

Black Canyon Inn Wedding – Becky & Thomas

Putting this styled elopement together was seriously a dress! It all started with the dress. That dress, holy cow, it’s so beautiful. I wanted to do a shoot that would really show it off, and I thought a styled elopement would be the perfect way to do that! I wanted details with pops of pink […]

Bear Lake Engagement Session – Korynn + Austin

We (as in the wedding vendor community) spend so much time talking about the bride that sometimes it’s easy to forget there’s a whole other person involved in a wedding.

Ok, better late than never right? I usually try to do this post right at the new year but um… I’ll be honest with you guys. I didn’t want to. Not that I didn’t want to do the post, because these year in review posts are literally my favorite, but I wanted to be present […]
