Kristy and Ved Wedding and Reception








  Christie (of CG photography) asked me to assist her on this wedding. The location was held at “Noah’s Event Venue” in South Jordan.

  It was great being the assistant photographer on this shoot. It takes loads of pressure off and I was free to take more candid’s and less posed photos then I normally would.

 

 
 Christies’ husband Bruce manned the photo booth while we swarmed the wedding party and surrounding venue.



I loved This dress! 
The Bride looked stunning in it!
 



  
 The three of us had so much fun that night- despite my losing my car keys for over two hours. Way too long of a story to get in to. But lets just say, it was a typical “me” episode (of course with a lot of laughs). 






How adorable are these two brothers?
 I couldn't get enough of these cute kids.
                                              


 The Ceremony was sweet and very sincere


  This little girl named “Harlow” completely stole my heart. I wanted to take her home.
ADORABLE!


Also there was one man in particular that had had way too much to drink and kept getting Christie and I mixed up until he finally saw us together. The double take he took of us was classic. He even shook his head a little bit.

 It was a great wedding with great music, food and amazing people! 

I love Christie and Bruce and would assist them on a wedding anytime!

Good luck to the Happy Couple-- it looks like they are going to have a blast on their new venture together called "Marriage"!

Joseph and Marisa Wedding



I was very flattered and a little nervous taking on the assignment of photographing Joseph and Marisa Bouchelle’s wedding. I remember when Joseph was born. How time flies. It seems like yesterday I was babysitting for them. My love for their family has only deepened with the years. Thank you for letting me be a part of the “wedding” experience.




       


       

















As an interesting turn of events, Mike knew the brides’ family from Indiana. He held Marisa as a baby, just as I held Joseph. What a small world we live in isn’t it?

Well, this couple is blessed from the start with such great families and love for each other.






 


I wish them all the best with my love!

The Nipko Family



This Family was so great! They were a joy to take photos of. I found this family, warm, laid back, loving and lots of fun!




 

 This was my second to last photo-shoot before my big surgery the following week. When Amy, the mom, came by my house to pick up the cd of photos, she brought an adorable gift bag filled with a book, lotion, various treats and a heartfelt note.
 







Amy will have no idea how much that touched my heart. While I was spending a slightly lonely mother’s day in the hospital, missing my husband and babies and in lots of pain, I pulled out the book Amy gave me, which is entitled “I am a Mother”. How appropriate. 





My eyes began to tear up as I read the forward by Sheri Dew and the divine importance of motherhood. Amy did not know that I would be in the hospital over mothers day. She also did not know that my soul needed lifting. Truly the Lord blesses us through people like Amy who listen to his promptings and act on them.
