Ladies choice.....

The theme for the high school girls choice dance was Disneyland....  so the little miss had a clear idea of how we could decorate!  Miss Mindy had been working her magic before I got there with the centerpieces, so I took care of the tent and chairs.  We needed a couple of heaters since it is October in Utah and the kids were not coming in parkas, but in shorts and tshirts to look like true Disney  tourist!  It turned out to be a super cute night for the kids and Abi's dad had a great idea for hosting it in the backyard!

Urban Ballerina

This was a fun shoot downtown.....  Not only is Abi always a gem about getting pictures done, but I brought a very talented Madeline along with me to get her feet wet.  It is not always ideal conditions downtown between light and the pedestrian traffic, but Madeline did a great job on her first paying job!  Abi was a riot crossing in and out of commuter rail in toe shoes and needless to say the crowd was more then encouraging while they stopped to stare!

Krista.... Not your average beauty queen

Krista is a doll.....  no doubt about it and no way around it!  This little bride has been a sweet friend for years now and her mother and I were friends who met on the church pew.  She has ouzels of talent, and the most authentic beauty from the inside out!  Her wedding was a family affair were all aunts were cutting and sewing banners till the final hours to make her wedding drip all sorts of happiness from the rafters!  She has truly been a little angel to all that are so blessed to know her, and needless to say miss Pieper has always been a huge fan!

Lauren & Matt .....

There is a story with every event I do.... but this is the one that is dearest in my heart.  Years ago my kids and I were taken in by this little brides family when life was more then a challenge!  They not only gave us a place to stay but they were a huge part in making my children and I smile again!  No matter how busy our lives get, these are friends that I consider a vital part of my personal family.  My boys have been forever blessed because of the influence Lauren's father has been and continues to be as they grow.  I have never been hugged so tight or shared more happy tears as I did when her family arrived to the reception venue.  Lauren created a beautiful wedding and will have a marriage to last throughout the eternities.....  I was just grateful for the opportunity to be the hands behind her divine day!
XOXO to the bride and groom!
