Maybe it was the fact that they quoted two of my favorite books during their ceremony and they loooooove all of the same spots in Moab I do, but this wedding won my heart. These two math whizzes were endearing and completely in love. The highlight of the reception were the toasts... the wedding party knocked it out of the park with their phenomenal/sweet/teary/hilarious speeches. So so glad I could meet these two and be a part of their beautiful mountain wedding.
This bohemian wedding was one of my favorites. The whole thing looks like a dream. I love Makenna's look: her dress, the asymmetrical garden bouquet, the red nails, the breeze blowing her hair-- the whole day (not to mention the perfect light) was on point! So glad I could wander around with these two and capture what they feel for each other.
I met these two in Moab last fall when I photographed their engagements. I immediately fell for how genuinely happy and real they were. I couldn't wait to photograph their wedding! And as you can see, It was absolutely everything I knew it would be: stunning, original, full of laughter, loving family, great friends with awesome dance moves and fabulous food. I was so pleased to be able to photograph their couples session the next day when we were relaxed, unhurried and could enjoy the beautiful vistas at Canyonlands National Park. And the dinosaur theme was so darling-- they fell in love at a dinosaur site in Southern Utah!
I seriously love the couples I have the chance of working with. Ashely was so calm when the rain started to pour and the ceremony location was switched to indoors. They both just went with it and celebrated each other, their union and their family and friends. And they didn't bat an eyelash when I suggested we head out into the drizzle for their couples session.
Memorial Day was so crazy busy that I was thrilled when this family took me up on a last minute location change to beat the crowds. We had so much fun wandering around watching the sunset and laughing at their adorable son. I love photographing all of the wonderful families that come visit Moab!
When Michael contacted me about photographing his proposal at Delicate Arch, I was all for it. It is a spectacular spot to decide to spend your life with the one you love. Thanks for letting me tag-a-long and capture the moment!
This La Sal mountain wedding in Moab, Utah was perfection. I got to hear their "how we met" story and was laughing right along with them. They met in high school thirteen years ago and since then, they've been climbing and rafting all over the west. After searching for the perfect place to tie the knot, they finally settled on Whispering Oaks where they could have the best of both worlds: the mountains and the sandstone.
After dating for a decade, these two New Yorkers wanted to find the perfect destination wedding venue. Moab Under Canvas fit the bill: remote, serene and stunningly beautiful. One of my favorite moments of the wedding was the incredible storm that rolled by (scroll down for the photos!) but didn't rain a drop on the wedding. Such a lovely wedding.

For two years I lived in this beautiful remote location. We were the last road to get plowed in the whole county and it was 75 miles to the nearest grocery store. There was no wifi, but I dare say there was a better connection.
