Treasures: Part II

Yesterday I posted a few images showcasing my mother's ceramic pitcher collection. After I put the post together, I thought to myself, "Hey Cate! Why don't you do an entire series on little "treasures" found around your childhood home?" I then became exceptionally giddy with excitement (that happens often when there is a camera around my neck) and knew that this would be a fun little project while I'm visiting home. You see, my parents have a plethora of unique and beautiful treasures that I just can't wait to share with you. Today you get a glimpse at some of my favorite vintage books that adorn the bookshelves in my family's living room. Aren't they beautiful? They just make me want to lay down in a grassy field and read all. day. long. 

With Elizabeth Bennett. 

We would be the best of friends.

Treasures: Part I

When my family lived in England, my mother started collecting beautiful ceramic pitchers.

She has dozens of them. 
Pink, blue, white, purple, green, small, medium, large, heavy, light; you name it, she's got it.

I just love them.

Want one?

Big things are happening here at Ciao Bella Photography, and to celebrate I'm letting one lucky person choose between one of the following fine art prints. {Wahoo!} Part of the reason for this celebration is that Ciao Bella is increasing its number of international sales and features, which is very exciting! What I want to know is if you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Just leave a comment to enter! Click "like" at the end of the post to get an extra entry (leave another comment so I know). Good luck!

Ashley + Mark: Utah Engagement Photographer, Downtown Salt Lake

Oh how I loved working with this couple. :) They contacted me a few days before we scheduled the shoot and we planned it all in a matter of hours. It was a nice little change to do something spontaneous! If you haven't checked out downtown Salt Lake City lately, you should walk around and see all the fun boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. It's a happening place, let me tell you. I went location scouting with my husband the night before the shoot and I think we counted 6 or 7 nightclubs partying away just in one square block! Ashley and Mark, you were a joy to work with. Thanks so much for trusting me to take your engagements. :)

the end. :)

Elisa + Justin: Utah Wedding Photographer

I know I say I love all my clients, but I think I need to reiterate that. I absolutely LOVE my clients! Elisa and Justin are two of the sweetest people I have ever had the good fortune of working with, and simply beamed with love and happiness on their wedding day! Not only that, but their families were such wonderful people and made me feel right at home. From the pictures at the temple to the final dance at the reception, this wedding went on without a hitch and was so much fun to document. Thank you Elisa and Justin for sharing your big day with me, it was a true pleasure!
