I met Olivia through work and the more I got the know her the more I wanted to take her and her cute husband's photos! I loved that they were up to driving over to the sand dunes. This was my first time shooting there so I was really excited! When we got there it was crazy windy and they were such troopers to deal with sand flying everywhere. But it was all worth it when we saw the sun set. It was absolutely gorgeous!
I met Michelle when we were randomly assigned roommates freshman year in college! We totally didn't get along initially, but we quickly became best friends! When she got engaged, I insisted that I did her engagements! When I asked her if she had a location in mind for the shoot, she said Hobble Creek Canyon. So we headed up and went to Jolley's Ranch campground which has a beautiful large park in it. Little did I know, this park is where Michelle and Gavin had THEIR FIRST KISS! I was dying. They are such a cute couple and I can't wait for them to get married!
When I came across this beautiful dress on ASOS.com, I knew I had to buy it! I knew that I wanted to do a shoot with the dress and when I got it in the mail, I immediately knew I wanted to see if Kelsie would be able to wear it! I brought her the dress, and we were in luck, it fit! So we started planning this shoot.
Kelsie told me about Jason from Green in a Grey World and after looking at the photos of his flowers and I knew we had to work with him! We kept this shoot small, Kelsie even did her own hair and makeup! (Amazing right?!)
So we got it all together and on a Saturday in January, Kelsie and I made the trek out to the Bonneville Salt Flats. The drive is easy when you get to talk with a good friend! When we got to the Salt Flats, we tried to figure out where to shoot, so we drove past the visitors center. After getting off the next exit and turning around, we realized the next exit to turn back around would be in 40 miles!! So, we parked and waited for the sun to get perfect, then we ran across the freeway to get the perfect photos. Oh, and did I mention it was FREEZING?! Kelsie was such a champ and stood in the freezing water the whole time! But, it was SO worth it. This shoot couldn't have turned out more perfect!
