Greenhouse Engagements at Liberty Park, Salt Lake City, UT

Zac and Kelly were so much fun to work with! I met Kelly during high school. We were both in Peer Leadership Team together which was basically a “club” that did a lot of service projects and service in general. We had to have about 40 hours of service every quarter on top of mandatory service projects, if that gives you any idea of what we did! Back to Zac and Kelly. These two won a giveaway of mine and it was such a joy to reconnect with Kelly and get to meet her new fiancé! We had so much fun at Liberty Park. There were so many great backgrounds around the Greenhouse. Plus Liberty Park was holding an event with fun rides and such so we got to have a ferris wheel in some of the backgrounds in these photos. I think it really added to the fun nature of these two! Check out their lovely session below :).

Salt Lake City, Utah LGBT+ Styled Wedding Shoot w/Inclusive Vendor List

 I planned this shoot to be inclusive of the community and show representation where there is very little in my home state. I grew up in Salt Lake City Utah, it is very well known that Utah is a red state and is heavily populated by a religion that doesn’t always include those within the community. Every time you go to a local bridal magazine or blog here there’s hardly any representation of people of color, much less the LGBTQ+ community.  As someone with immense privilege, white, cis gendered, & straight passing I recognized how easy it is to find people who look like me in these blogs but I also recognize the huge disparity there is when couples in the community or couples who are of color come to only find the blonde haired, blue eyed, straight couples represented and no one else here. “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” kept repeating in my head as I prepared to move back to a place that isn’t always considerate of those in marginalized communities. So I planned this shoot. I reached out to a couple who I thought would be the perfect match and low and behold they said yes!!! I was so ecstatic to work with Ray and Ky as they fit this theme perfect. After meeting with them for this shoot we became friends and even attended SLC’s 2019 Pride Parade together! Love them so much but let’s continue with our story.

simplistic Backyard Wedding| Salt Lake City, Ut

This wedding has such a special place in my heart. Meet Sydney + Conner Sanders (Sydney used to be an Olivieri ;). Sydney is my best friend of almost a decade, it'll be exactly a decade next year. We met because I drank out of her cup at girls camp, it's a cute, funny story that I'm going to keep to myself because it's special but just know that that one mistaken moment led to ten years of a best friend and I couldn't be more grateful for my mistaken drink out of her cup. That led me to taking a trip to a local theme park with her family and from that day forward, my family and the Olivieri's were forever intertwined.
