I met up with Becky & Justin at the historic McCune Mansion for their ‘groomal’ session!

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||As I’m sure everyone is well aware, yesterday was National Unicorn Day – a magical celebration of Joy, Joyfulness & Joyousness (and Joy)! Oh rapture!

Every year at this time, we at ZumaPhoto fill our hearts with a rainbow of fruit-flavored, glittery happiness and love. This year, led by our own little Alpha-Corn, Angela, the ladies of ZumaPhoto went all out with happy-hilarious-head-horns, chirpy-cheerful-cupcakes, and perky-playful-pizza-pie!

All in all, it was a mirthful festival of all things blissful, blithe and gay! And an impressively elaborate excuse to avoid work for an hour.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||I had such a fun time playing in the snow up in Park City with Kim and Ray.  They were up for tromping through the snow, getting wet socks and all, but I think the image we got was so worth it!  I just love aspen trees year round, there isn’t a season in which they don’t look awesome.

Kim and Ray just look perfect framed among all of those black and white trunks. Thanks Kim and Ray for being such great sports in the wet snow! Continue reading

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||Last week was the annual pilgrimage to the mecca of portrait and wedding photographers,  the WPPI convention in Las Vegas.
