Riley + Kenzie + Salt Lake Temple Blossoms

This couple. To. Die. For. Kenzie's dress is EVERYTHING! She looked like Audrey Hepburn. Nailed it. And Riley all sorts of handsome in grey. Yes, please! I love filming gorgeous couples. It makes my YEAR! This song also makes my year (Best Day of My Life - American Authors). And her bouquet? Perfection. I could go on and on. Hold on to your butts for the reception. I might have cried about the cake and it's fabulosity. It's possible. Enjoy!

Riley + Kenzie + An Elegant Reception

I love this bride so much. I mean I love the groom too, don't get it twisted. But Kenzie... she's my girl. This reception was one of those grotesquely perfect receptions - My favorite to film. People with good taste are the best kind of people. Then you add on top of it that they are all insanely kind an gracious. Such a total pleasure to spend the day with these people. LOVE the noisy groomsmen. ALL 20 OF THEM. YOU HEARD, TWENTY!!! They sang the happy couple a personalized song - all referring to their smart phones for the lyrics. So cute and funny. This is my kind of crowd. Happy. NOT shy. Dancing. Goofing off. And incredibly sweet, every last one. Good people. Good food (I might have had six crepes and made myself mildly ill. It's possible.) Loved the photographer too. Yep. Zero complaints. Enjoy!

Keith + Wendy: Our Story

These two are so so darling! I absolutely love Wendy's accent and personality. She had me smiling the whole day. These two have such a fun and unique relationship and story. I can't wait to film their wedding in a few days!

Nate + Bethany + An Alpine Arts Center Reception

These two. Love love love these two. There is a moment when they are hugging after they have their first dance and you can see Nate say to Bethany "I love you so much". Tear. Love was in the air. Lots of happy couples kissing and loving on each other in this video. Perfection. My favorite were the shots of the darling little flower girls giggling and tickling each other. For reals? It was like I hired a bunch of tiny actors and made them be perfect for me. Promise I didn't. Everyone in this video is attractive. It's kind of disgusting. But SUPER fun to film and edit. I've said it before, I'll say it again: Hot people are the best of all the rest. Enjoy!

Nate + Bethany + A Stunning April Wedding

ARE you kidding me with this couple?! This shoot was the stuff my videographer dreams are made of! Let's start with the brides hair, shall we? UN. REAL. Straight out of a commercial. The weather? In love. On my side. All soft and overcast. Their skin was glowing with that lovely filter of clouds. The groom. Impeccably dressed and so very handsome. And then there's the bride. She looks like I freaking hired her to be gorgeous for me. I didn't. Promises. Also the song was written for me to edit to (Eyes - Rogue Wave). Okay that is a lie, but it sure feels like it. ENJOY!!

Bryce + Arriane: The First Look

These two are so amazing. They were so easy to film and natural in front of the camera. We shot at the state capitol building in Salt Lake City. This was my first time shooting there and my oh my! The lighting was so totally ideal I couldn't even stand it! Good lighting = happiest girl in town. It makes such a difference. Their skin was glowing, I tell you. Glowing! I had full blown strep complete with fever and chills during this shoot so THAT made the experience interesting. But I came away with stunning footage so it mattered not in the end. Enjoy!

Forever Young

What a unique shoot this was. These girls are so full of life and talent! It was such a cool experience to be able to capture their skill and spirit. They are truly amazing. I love my job. Especially when I get to be a part of something so incredible. I'm beyond excited to film their recitals later this month! Stay tuned for more and enjoy.

Mark + Staci + A Cherry Shake

This was a special shoot for me because Staci is one of my very best friends. I love working with people I love. Nothing makes me happier. And this shoot was so cute! Are you kidding me with the shiny red booths and black and white checkered floor tile and pink shake with whipped cream and a cherry on top?! And the carousel? And the fortune telling machine? It was all so totally perfect. And such a gorgeous couple too! We had and absolute ball! Enjoy :)
