%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || “Ooooooooooooooooo!”

That, or some variation thereof, is what nearly everybody who took a gander at this album for the few days it was in or studio said when they saw it. I’m particularly stoked by it because I pushed hard for this combination of new leathers in the cover and it turned out even better than I had imagined it would. The cover is a filigree-stamped split-grain leather with a quilted leather spine. Nom, nom nom!

This album was a long time in the making – the wedding was over 2 years ago and in fact was one of the very first that Logan and I shot together. But it just goes to show that its never too late to have us put the images from your wedding into the best possible setting. Congratulations Emily & Chris!

Wedding: Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church
Reception: Little America Hotel
Album: 100-sides, 11×14, 100% fabulous.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || Well since we’re stuck here in winter for a few more weeks we might as well celebrate it. I can’t think of a better way than to share this gorgeous album from McCall & Ryan’s December sealing the Salt Lake Temple that culminated in a stunning winter reception at Sundance Resort!

McCall had a lot of images to pare it down from: we did an engagement session, a bridal AND groomal session, the temple sealing and the reception. The only thing to do was go BIG! So here we have a 12×16 inch, 100-side beauty dolled up in McCall’s own inspired combination of gold ostrich and copper metallic leathers. As beautiful as it looks here, this album really needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Its positively decadent! %utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || Its been a while since we shared an album, but you can expect many more coming up because we produced more albums in this past year than we ever have before! Today’s star is this gorgeous 100-side, copper metallic leather and pink suede jaw-dropper that we produced for Maggie & Ben.

Maggie & Ben were married one beautiful sunny June day at the world famous La Caille, and we took a little extra time in designing the album to make sure that it really captured the love and emotion that were palpable to everyone there.

Please to enjoy!

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || For those of you unfamiliar with what a quinceañera is, it is the traditional coming-of-age celebration for girls of Latin American heritage. Held on a girl’s 15th birthday, it combines much of the significance found in Jewish bat mitzvahs (transition into adulthood), Catholic confirmation ceremonies (re-affirmation of the bond with God), sweet sixteen parties (an excuse to have a GIANT party), and a debutante ball (introduction to society and a kick-butt dress!).

They’re a really big deal in the western U.S. where there are large Latino communities, but despite my hopping between California and Utah, this was the first quinceañera I’ve ever shot. It totally rocked!

%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.
