%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || I just shot Allison & Drew’s phenomenal wedding this past Saturday, and as I was starting to think about bloggin’ it, I realized that you all really needed the same introduction to this crazy-in-love couple that I had a little while back – their engagement session.

I feel that the perfect engagement session isn’t just about making a couple look cool, its about revealing something about who they are. Engagement sessions generally include just two people – namely the ones gettin’ hitched – and I’m always trying to capture images that speak about their relationship. But sometimes in this big complicated world a wedding is actually about families uniting, and in those cases it really is a marriage of more than two people. In such situations I find it only fitting that all of the characters of the love story are included. Such was the case with Allison and Drew, because the other member of their family is…

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || In part 1 of Julia & Dan’s wedding day I indicated that viewers should stay tuned for part 2 which would be landing ‘soon’. I realize that 2 weeks is somewhat pushing the boundaries of ‘soon’, but Julia said that family and friends had been asking her about it constantly, so hopefully a little late is better then never. Thanks for your patience gang!

This was such a fun crowd and the love was palpable. Julia & Dan, you’ve got great people behind you and around you. Thank you for making me a part of it!

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || Dana hails from Down Under (Australia, not Provo) and though she talks funny, she’s also beautiful and just a heap ‘o fun, to boot.

When I saw her dress from Alta Moda Bridal I knew that I wanted to do something dramatic with her bridals and I thought that a bit of desert would suit her heritage and contrast nicely. She was totally down with a bit of adventure, so an hour and a half of driving later, we found ourselves with near perfect sky conditions. We had thought that the trip would only take 30 minutes, however, so by the time we got there, I had to work fast to make the most of the 20 minutes of light that I had remaining! It was probably not my most relaxed bridal session, but its one of my favorites so far this year.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || Zach and Tiffanee are serious bicycle enthusiasts. So serious in fact that they peddled their road bikes across the entire state of Iowa! This will explain all of the bike shots. We had so much fun on this shoot. I got a good workout running alongside the two of them as they road up and down city creek canyon. I love mixing it up with some action and playful fun and these two were a blast!

After the bicycle shoot we went up to Red Butte Gardens for a little different type of nature. The flowers and plants and trees offer so much color and texture. It was perfect for a natural shoot with some formal elements. Thank you Tiffanee and Zach! I can’t wait to post your wedding photos!!!

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||UPDATE: Due to the proximity of Thanksgiving, it was decided that the seminar is being postponed until sometime next year.  We’ll keep you posted when we know more.

About four years ago I attended a seminar in Los Angeles by famed Australian photographer David A. Williams. I’ve attended many seminars and I find something useful in all of them – but David’s message was the only one that I can honestly say left me….moved. There are many gifted photographers out there who can show you a new way to see images, help you redefine what to shoot, teach you how to wrangle the most from your equipment, or offer priceless information on how to reach your ideal client. But David speaks to something altogether different, and arguably more important: why we shoot. David shoots from the heart. And he will inspire you to do the same.

I am honored to be co-hosting David in his new 3-day seminar presentation along with the inimitable Pepper Nix of Pepper Nix Photography and Heidi & Tim Uhl of Retrospect. The seminar runs from November 23-25, 2009 at the ZumaPhoto studio in Salt Lake City, UT. You really owe it to yourself to attend.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||To some, a wedding album is simply a collection of photos. For us and our clients, however, the album represents the culmination of an ardent vision. Months to years of planning and sweating of details on the part of our clients; one compressed and emotionally charged day; countless hours shooting, editing, retouching, interpreting and designing our images of that day – all come together into the ultimate presentation of the memories that all that effort forged – the album.

At ZumaPhoto, the delivery of an album is the one time where all work stops and we take a moment to gather together in appreciation of the results of our efforts.

Today we’d like to share just a peek of our latest creation with you – the album of Alicia & Jay.
