%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || I have been lucky enough to get to shoot up at Red Cliff Ranch many times now and I love it there. It is so beautiful, elegant and unique all balled up into one amazing place. Then you add an amazing couple like Andrea and Sage; and you end up with pure magic. It was an amazing day from the start to finish (including the cow that thought he was a star and had to try and make it into all of our sunset shots). The food was exquisite from Culinary Craft as usual and everything looked so beautiful. It was a perfect fit for Andrea and Sage making it a perfect day as well as experience. Thanks again for having me you two.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||Let me start by saying Congratulations to Nicole and Rich… You are guys are the best! I feel so humble by you letting me share your special day. It really was a day to remember from starting the day fishing with guys to ending the night with pie and a great band… I can’t imagine a more perfect setting for the couple than Red Cliff Ranch. The combination of the ranch and the amazing talent of Mara from Events by LMG, along with catering from Culinary Crafts, made the perfect storm and I was beyond excited to shoot it. Here are some of my favorite images from the day.

Thanks again Nicole and Rich for having me along.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || Last week we introduced you to Mary & Rick’s three-day celebration of all that is best in food, family and fun – beginning with their low-key but still fabulous Rehearsal Dinner. Today we head up to the big leagues – The Ceremony. Held at the postcard-perfect Red Cliff Ranch, their wedding was a showcase of taste and refinement, yet remained a very personal and intimate event. Mary’s dress provided by AltaMODA; Hair and Makup by Enizio; planning and coordination by Riehl Events; vintage car service by Something Vintage Something Blue; invitations, menu and program design by Ann Elizabeth Custom Invitations and Pink Piggy Design; guitar byMichael Lucarelli; and of course the food by Culinary Crafts.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || Yesterday we teased you by mentioning that one of our weddings had been featured in ALL THREE of Utah’s major bridal magazines. What we didn’t tell you is that the bride for this amazing event is someone so beloved and respected within the wedding industry in Utah, that for many of us, this was the real ‘royal wedding’ of last year. I am speaking of none other than Mary Crafts, head of Utah’s premier catering company (Culinary Crafts) for 27 years running, and one serious class act. So what choice does the top caterer have when it comes to catering her own wedding? Well there really isn’t any – she simply had to set the bar to a whole ‘nuther level! Three days of celebration, family and…what am I forgetting here….oh yes – FOOD! So here is Day 1 – the Rehearsal Dinner held in Mary’s own back yard. The Rehearsal Dinner was coordinated by Jacque Riehl of Riehl Events, featured in the latest issue of Utah Valley Bride, and of course catered by Culinary Crafts. I was nothing short of honored to have been asked to document this for Mary & Rick.

%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!
