Hunter and Heidi's Salt Lake City Engagement Session

Hunter and Heidi's Engagement Pictures turned out to be a very interesting night. We started out at the Salt Lake City Library then we went over to the Salt Lake City and County Building where two drugged-up homeless men were fighting along with one of their girlfriends. The girlfriend started jumping on and kicking the guy who was on the ground so Hunter decided to go and stop the fight. I was so glad that they had brought a change of clothes because Hunter got blood on his shirt. CRAZINESS! After the fight, we went over to an awesome alley in exchange place and a grafitti wall (where we met a cool guy on a skateboard)...then because we had spent quite a bit of time watching the crazy people duke it out - we were out of light. I hope the night was exciting and eventful :) So excited for your wedding you two...ENJOY!

A New Perspective From the Other Side of the Camera :)

It's not very often I am on the other side of the camera...in fact, since I started photography, I can only think of two times I have actually posed for a camera - once with my hubby in Key West and these with my dear sweet friend Annette. We were supposed to shoot an engagement session, but got rained out and managed to sneak in a few headshots. I took a bunch of her - which i posted to my Facebook page, and then she used my camera to take a few of me...kind of fun actually :) The last one of these is definitely my favorite...

Jessee and Rachelle - Utah Wedding Photographer

My good friend, Zig Peacock, asked me if I would second shoot with him at his niece's wedding. It was in her parents backyard which was absolutely gorgeous. It was a very bright and hot sunny day. ENJOY!

Zig took the following shots, but I didn't have his logo, so I just put his name into my watermark :) :
