Daniel + Emily + A Garden Wedding

I loved this wedding! It was at a ranch in northern Utah on a warm evening a couple of weeks ago. The bride wore an unconventional dress with a wreath in her hair and I loved every second of it! She has this understated beauty. It's the kind of beautiful that comes without trying and I'm extremely jealous. And the darling groom was all smiles the whole day. They are a shy couple. The kind of people who don't like a lot of unsolicited attention. So I had to be sneaky when getting candid shots of them or they would get embarrassed. Super darling. Loved this day. Enjoy.

Mrs. Utah 2014!

I got to film the Mrs. Utah pageant again this year. These women are certainly a stunning bunch. I love being a part of all the sequins and crystals and makeup and hairspray. It's a girlie haven of sorts. These ladies work so hard to be a part of this competition and it definitely shows. Amazing job to all of the contestants!

Bright Night July 2014

This is a time when I absolutely love my job. I have the privilege of filming this gorgeous charity event for a women's shelter and it is such a total blast! They offer amazing classes taught by some of the top bloggers and Instagrammers in all the land. The incredible women who come to this thing pay a pretty penny to get in and enjoy the event. I get to go for free and "work". Pfft. Yeah right. Days this fun surely aren't considered work. Hashtag Enjoy! Hashtag I love my job. Hashtag follow me on Instagram! picket_fence_films

Mark + Mandalee + A Salt Lake City Temple Wedding

This is a same day edit I filmed the other day and it turned out so totally lovely. The weather was perfect. Everyone was smiling. Mandalee's dress fits like a glove. Seriously she looked bangin' in that thing. The music suited the mood of the event so well. Happy. Lovely. Chill. I'm supportive of the whole thing. Yes yes. Enjoy!

Jon + Christie + Blossoms So Pretty You Will Cry

This couple. This day. Those blossoms. I... I can't. It's all too wonderful. Starting off this wedding season with a bang if I do say so myself. This couple is super inappropriate which made me happy because I'm always the most inappropriate person in the room. Not today. I was in very good company. Plus they are so attractive I very nearly died. Heavenly. Enjoy this same day edit! I know I did. :)

Colby + Brette + The Oquirrh Mountain Temple

This is a same day edit I filmed on Saturday. These people. These are MY people. This wedding was extremely close to my heart because of the folks involved. These things: Brette is so stunning that you might die. Or start crying. I don't know, something extreme. She's just exquisite. Colby had me laughing the whole day with his darling facial expressions and things he would say. A blast was had by all. One of the gorgeous bridesmaids told me I was good at life. So there's THAT. It was nice and warm, considering. All the guests thought it was cold. I chuckled and told them to give my December 21st bride a ring so that she could explain the meaning of cold to them. Overall a splendid day with lovely people. Many of whom I love dearly. I couldn't ask for a better job. I just couldn't. Enjoy this LOVELY song by Holley Maher - Hiding Place
