I was so excited when my sweet sister-in-law asked me to take her engagement pictures! I knew it would be fun, because these two crazy lovebirds ARE fun!! It was quite an adventure trying to get to the right location, however. I had some great ideas... but when we got to the first location, we just drove past. I could tell that there was SOMETHING going on there. Tons of cars... lots of people... so it was off to the second location. As soon as we pulled in there, it didn't look good. Apparently there was a concert going on there. Good thing I had a third location in mind. It turned out to be a great place and we took about a million shots there, then decided to go back and try the first location again. I knew there were some spots there that were no where near the crowd. Turns out it was some kind of huge party with loud music and tons of teenagers (I think it may have been a church youth activity). So we just stayed up the hill from them and it turned out to be great! These two get married in August in the Washington D.C. Temple. Oh, how I wish I could be out there for the wedding!! Hopefully I'll get to take her bridals pics (HINT HINT!) Well, it was hard to narrow down favorites, so I posted a whole bunch. Enjoy! :)

Hi, I found you through ILP. Your work is very crisp and clean looking. I really like how the eyes sparkle in every picture. Beautiful. We are trying to get the Utah county GTG going this next week. Hopefully you will be able to come. Maybe you could teach me a thing or two :) Ps what workshop did you attend? was it around here? (Provo area)

I would LOVE to come to the get together (if I can), Nichole! I've been taking "The Light Workshop" by Detra... who is also on ILP! I've learned a lot. It's an online workshop and goes for 8 weeks. I've really enjoyed it.

The location from the Photowalk was in Surgar house. The church was on Yale Avenue and then the street we walked down was just a ways North from there.
