I've had a camera in my hand since I was 10, and it didn't take long before I learned the power I have to make others feel beautiful. When you step in front of my camera, that's my wish for you as well. To feel beautiful and confident just as you are.

Emily + Jace // Beautiful Backyard Wedding

If you’re looking for inspiration for a backyard wedding well, you have stumbled on the right blog post. Emily and Jace’s summer backyard wedding was a dream. It was decorated by her family, friends and neighbors. Her beautiful gown was from¬†Sweetheart Bridal in Provo, UT.

We met the week before at the Gilbert Temple for their bridal session. Regardless of the fact that we had an early morning session (to beat the Arizona heat) their excitement still radiated throughout their session. You could tell they absolutely couldn’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together. Jace mentioned “I love having that big question mark out of my life, and I love the fact that its Emily. She is seriously the best. I also love knowing she is mine forever, it’s just exciting.” They knew each other and were close friends all through high school, you could tell.. they were ready!

When the big day rolled around there was nothing but big smiles. Their fathers held the doors as they ran out of the temple hand in hand excited about the commitment they had just made together with their closest family and friends as witnesses. Directly after the exit everybody braved the afternoon heat while we got a handful of family and bridal party photos. Later they danced the night away at their reception.

We are so blessed to get to work with such wonderful clients in documenting their big day. We love what we do and who we get to work with. I hope you enjoy their photos!
