Travel Tuesday || A Tuscan Rehearsal Dinner || Cortona, Italy

We've decided to try something new here on our blog. We have been very lucky over the past few years to travel A LOT for work. This is has resulted in tons travel photos just sitting on our hard drives, so we decided to publish them in a series called "Travel Tuesday". 

To start things off, we decided to share Eryn + Jon's beautiful rehearsal dinner that we had the opportunity of photographing in Cortona, Italy.  We spent the afternoon wandering the charming streets of this Tuscan hillside town.  We loved getting lost in the little alleyways & staircases of this romantic city.  After walking around the city for a few hours, we met the bride & groom at Villa Laura - a beautiful, private villa only minutes from downtown Cortona. 

Eryn + Jon chose to have an intimate wedding with only their closest family & friends.  This made for a easy-going evening that was full of love, laughter, and lots of wine :) They had a private Italian guitarist play classical Italian music as they enjoyed each-other's company, danced, laughed, and made the most of the evening before they got to wake up the next day & say "I-Do" under the Tuscan sun. 

Utah Home Session || Stephen + Jessica

The Archibald's welcomed us into their chic and charming home on the most perfect crisp, October day. When they bought this historic home, it needed some serious love and attention. Stephen and Jessica were the perfect couple to take on the challenge! They spent four months tearing up disgusting carpet, replastering walls, painting over gross yellow paint, refinishing floors, filling their space with lots of vintage and antique finds, and much more.

We had a lot of fun capturing the love that these two have for each other and all of the love that they poured into their beautiful home.

Provo Wedding || Taryn + Caleb || Utah Wedding Photographer

Oh, summer.... We miss you!!

This wedding will definitely go down as one of our favorite weddings of the year.  Taryn + Caleb have a such contagious positive energy & are madly in love.  Not to mention, they're probably one of the classiest & stylish couples we know!   They were married in the Provo City Center LDS temple, followed by a dinner & reception at the White Shanty .  Scroll on through & check out the amazing work they did decorating their reception! 

Salem Oregon Wedding || Julie + Russ || Oregon Photographer

We are working towards consistency on our site, so we decided to re-edit a handful of old favorites this winter!  First up, Julie + Russ!

We still are so humbled & grateful that we got the chance to Photograph this wedding back in 2016.  Julie & Russ are two of the sweetest, kindest, most loving people we have ever worked with.  Their love radiates.  It was so amazing to see the outpouring of love from their friends & family during the ceremony & dinner. 

Their first look & bridal portraits will forever be some of our favorites.  Make sure you scroll to the end to see their awesome flower pedal send-off!

Julie is also a super talented photographer! You all should take a few minutes to see her amazing work as well www.julieterekhin.com

Zion Engagement Session || Callie + David

We love Callie and David. They have always been adventurous, traveled to new destinations, and both are incredible photographers themselves; which ultimately brought them together. As you can see, they don't take themselves too seriously and are extremely photogenic, an awesome combination.

As we were planning for the shoot and brainstorming about locations, we were initially going to photograph their session in Moab but ended up in Zion. We are SO happy we ended up in the Zion Wilderness! The wilderness area has it all; red rock, high desert foliage, a super soft sunset, and an impressive blue hour. 

Utah Mountain Bridals || Taryn + Caleb

We're convinced that Taryn and Caleb are the classiest and most stylish couple we know. Caleb's no sock, no tie, fresh hair, and seer sucker suit won us over. Classy as hell. Taryn looked effortlessly gorgeous! Before we saw them for the shoot, she described her dress as, "Simple, simple, simple. White. No lace. No beads.". Perfection.

We decided to photograph their session up Big Cottonwood Canyon, at a spot we were familiar with the lighting and confident we could deliver timeless images for their timeless love.
