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.Read More
Took this wedding right before new years! I had a fantastic time shooting this model couple, Anna & Hunter. Their wedding was held at All Saints Chapel in Raleigh, NC. They set it up beautifully in the chapel. The lighting was gorgeous! We also got to sneak out between the ceremony and reception to do a quick shoot around Raleigh! I love the variety of backdrops we were able to shoot on!
Enjoy this lovely winter wedding :)Read More
Ya’ll, this blog post is jam-PACKED with some good, wholesome content. You ready? *to the tune of “bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child* ‘Cause I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly! Allison and Keenan’s wedding was one to remember, Keenan’s family are all musicians so it was a night full of live music and swing dancing!Read More
Jasmine and David were a really laid back couple the entire day (even through some of the more stressful bits of any wedding) but that didn’t mean that they weren’t fully ready to party. There was DEFINITELY partying and lots of it. The dancing was so much fun to watch and honestly made me want to dance even though I am a solid 10 on the cringey dance scale.
Everything about this wedding was big and beautiful, from the flower archway, to the overflowing centerpieces, right down to the Krispy Kreme Donuts + Cheerwine they had as favors for their guests.Read More
