Natalie & Jeff ~ Utah Engagement Photographer ~ Provo, UT

I've known Natalie for a few years now, and I cannot tell you how happy I was to get an email asking me to do their engagement photos! There was some question about the weather that morning, but after many prayers the rain decided to hold off until just after our session. I think we all breathed a HUGE sigh of relief!

If you couldn't already tell, Natalie and Jeff are an extremely happy, adorable, over-the-moon-in-love couple. Natalie made Jeff an adventure book of all the fun things they wanted to do during their courtship...similar to the one in the movie "Up!" We all agreed that a themed session was in order. 

I think it turned out pretty well. :)

ghost girl.

What do you get when you mix slow shutter speed and low lighting? A fabulous, eerie ghost image! This is a single photo taken straight from the camera...the only post processing work was a black & white conversion and an applied texture. 

If you'd like more information on how I achieved this shot, email me at

Mexican Plum Tree

Have you ever smelled something that made you think, "That smells GORGEOUS."

Not "good".

Not "great".

Not "wonderful".


If you ever find yourself in a botanical garden, nursery, or Mexico for that matter, make sure you take the time to smell the blossoms of the lovely Mexican Plum tree. You will thank me.

Honestly, I wish I could post how GORGEOUS this tree smelled instead of just an image. I guess you'll just have to use your imagination. :)

Do you have a favorite activity?  A hobby perhaps? Something that makes you giddy with excitement and lets your soul soar? {was that cheesy enough for you?}

I do.

Can you tell what it is?

I'll give you three guesses. 

Still thinking? I'll give you a hint.

Floral. Photography.


When all else fails and I'm feeling down and out, floral photography fills me with joy. A pure, euphoric joy that leaves me smiling and feeling like I accomplished something worthwhile.
