It was up in the snowy Utah mountains that I first met Keely and Bryce. While there were many things that grabbed my attention, like their natural playfulness in front of my camera and their cheerful personalities, I was quickly drawn to the great care and regard that they had for one another….

I can now say that I have photographed some beautiful, natural, and fresh Utah engagements of a married couple!! Everything got flipped upside down in the world when…

She laughed in disbelief as the tears poured, she insisted he joking, and then it all set in… Since that one moment, there have been many more for this beautiful couple, building up the most amazing collection of minutes, hours, and days.
