My name is Brandy and I am a Utah wedding photographer. I am a miserable excuse for a blogger. I’d rather fold my laundry than create a blog post for shoots I’ve already posted on Insta and Facebook. But, best business practices dictate that traffic should be driven to my blog so here we are again, a few months later. Today I’ll focus on the weddings I’ve had the pleasure of shooting this Spring and Summer!
Malary and Cameran came to me last fall for engagement photos. That’s just not done in Utah! We shot engagements 9 months before their wedding day. Generally I am booked less than 6 months before a wedding day and we shoot engagement just a few months before. This was exciting and different!
Formals came this Spring and they were beautiful! We headed up Provo Canyon early spring and were greeted by some sad trees at our first location. So we moved and found a spectacular location in another area of the canyon.
If at first you don’t succeed…
They had a beautiful wedding day in early summer, at the Payson Temple and a glorious reception with the best vittles at the Springville Art Museum.
Shantell & Lijin met through a mutual friend and the rest is history. Engagements, were done in Hobble Creek Canyon, just before a storm rolled in.
Lijin is from India and was not keen on PDA. I insisted on at least a couple of photos with a kiss and he didn’t protest very loudly.
He loosened up quite a bit for their first look, however. We we went to Provo Canyon, into the gorgeous aspens.
And up to a peak at sunset…
Rachel and Andrew had such a hilarious rollercoaster ride to get to the engagement. Come to think of it, that’s where we should’ve shot their engagement photos! But we chose a glorious Spring orchard instead.
Their first look was at a venue I’ve never shot before, and it was ENCHANTING! I am now a Wadley Farms groupie.
Check out Andrew’s awesome Captain America cuffs! He also won this amazing tailored suit at a bridal fair and had it embroidered with their initials and wedding date. TLAF, am I right?!
I LOVE that you can feel his nerves and anticipation at seeing his bride for the first time.
And then the big day at the Timpanogos Temple! This couple planned everything. They took on all of the details themselves and it was one of the best I’ve ever shot or attended. They did an amazing job of it.
Becky and Josh are my exotic locale wedding this year. I’ve never been to the Columbia South Carolina Temple before, so it was a pleasure shoot there for the first time.
Becky’s bridals were shot at the Historic Utah County Courthouse. The lighting is kind of a nightmare, but with some good planning, it can be done!
We headed to Tibble Fork afterward. It was still under construction, but with the right angles, no one would ever know.
The wedding day was so hot and humid that we lasted only about 40 minutes doing formals outside of the temple. There was lots of mopping of brows going on.
This family LOOOOOVVEES to dance!! The father of the bride more than anyone else! It was a party to remember!
Terri and Doug had their wedding at another venue I’ve never shot at before. Heritage Gardens in Sandy, Utah. It has an impeccable garden. A gorgeous spot for a wedding ceremony.
The bride wore blue and the groom, plaid.
Such a fun and spirited couple! I enjoyed every minute of their laid-back, full-of-laughter wedding!
Terri is gregarious and fun and outgoing. The whole wedding was warm and bright, like her smile and laughter.
