Rachel & Tyler: Utah Engagement Photographer

When I think of this couple, I think of J. Crew catalogs, delicious golden light, and Tina Fey. You see, Rachel loves J. Crew. And rightly so...she rocks out their clothing better than any cover model could. As for the delicious golden light, how can a photographer forget a location and session in which the beautiful light makes you swoon? The entire time I edited these photos I found myself saying, "I want to go to there." Which brings me to Tina Fey. Rachel and Tyler love watching "30 Rock". Whenever I would ask Rachel to say something funny to Tyler, she would whip out another doozy of a quote. Needless to say, I was doubled over with laughter much of our session.

It's all in the details: Second Shooting with Lindsey Orton Photography

I had the pleasure of assisting Lindsey Orton Photography at another wedding a few weeks ago and decided to focus on capturing details. This is one of my favorite parts of wedding photography and I was so excited to have a night devoted solely to honing my skills. Thank you Lindsey for letting me tag along yet again! :)

{Quite possibly my favorite bouquet ever.}
