Taylor and Kory Bridals | Utah Wedding Photographers

I shot Taylor and Kory’s Bridals at the Utah State Capitol Building.  It is the perfect place for a bridal session when the weather outside is less than desirable or if you’re looking for somewhere elegant and classy!  Taylor wanted her bridal session with Kory so they decided to do a first look at the bridal session.  I love it when couples choose to do a first look and I love it even more when they want to do their bridal session together.  It takes so much pressure off of the wedding day because believe me, wedding days are always unpredictable and the timeline is always short so it’s nice to get the majority of the bride and groom pictures out of the way before the wedding day!  Then on the actual wedding day, you can relax and not be stressed if there isn’t enough time for pictures.  Of course, we will still do as many pictures on the wedding day as time will allow, but at least you have options this way.  Taylor looked stunning in her dress from Fantasy Bridal.  Kory got his suit from Tuxedos by Lee.  Both of them looked great and I loved working with them!!

Sara and Matt’s Bridals | Utah Wedding Photographers

Us Utah Wedding Photographers  dream about couples like this!  Sara and Matt had everything going for them!  I mean look at that dress!  It is from Bridal Brilliance Rentals and if you are looking for a dress but don’t want to buy, I highly recommend them!  I have never seen a dress of theirs I didn’t love.  And that bouquet from Hillside Floral is just stunning!    We shot their bridal session at the Utah State Capitol.  Doing a Utah State Captiol bridal session is a great idea if you are looking for an indoor location.  They don’t charge a fee to shoot there and you can go anytime, however I highly recommend calling beforehand to make sure there isn’t a big event going on which can make it really hard to shoot in the good spots 🙂  Sara had their videographer, Brad with Forevermore Films,  there too which made for some awesome shots and a great time!  Sara and Matt, thank you so much for choosing me as your Utah wedding photographer!

Chelsea and Parker’s Bridals | Utah Wedding Photographers

I love it when couples do their bridal session together and do a first look!!  It is such a great time to get pictures together without the pressure and stress of the wedding day!  The first look gives the groom a chance to see the bride in her dress for the first time and we also get to capture his reaction!  I highly recommend all of my couples do their bridal session together and include a first look as well!  I know so many couples who are happy they did it.  It takes so much stress off of the wedding day.  We still definitely do bride and groom pictures on the wedding day but we don’t feel as bad if we run out of time or there is bad weather because we already got so many great pictures beforehand! And it gives you a chance to display the pictures of you two on the wedding day at your reception!

Diana and Matt Bridals | Utah Wedding Photographers

 Diana and Matt’s bridal session was so incredible!!  They both looked amazing and were completely natural in front of the camera.  It was pouring rain at the beginning of the session, which was ok because we were shooting inside but just was we were about to end we looked outside and it was snowing HUGE snow flakes (my favorite kind)!!    So we ran outside for a few.   And I am so glad we did! I love the way they turned out!!  And it was so awesome of Diana to not competely stress about her dress 🙂  I am so excited for their wedding at the end of this month!!
