Becca & Michael: Houston, Texas 10/9/10

I absolutely LOVED capturing the story of Becca and Michael's Wedding in Houston, Texas. The wedding was originally in Utah but when it was moved out to Texas Becca thought she need to find a photographer in Texas to stay in the budget. However, after shopping for quotes in Texas she spoke to me about travel packages. She found that it was a better deal to have a photographer (and videographer) from Utah fly out than to hire someone from Texas. I couldn't be more thrilled!

I flew out the day before the wedding with Sara, the amazing videoographer from Camelot Studios. It was so much fun to be there for all the "behind the scenes" that conspire before the wedding and on the wedding day. I photographed everything from flower arrangements being made to table clothes being ironed- all the small things that I never get to capture. I even had the privilege of photographing Becca and her family outside the temple after she went through the temple the night before. It was great to get to know the family so well.

The wedding day had perfect wedding weather- mid 80s, low humidity (I heard this was not normal), and blue skies. I throughly enjoyed the break from cold Utah. The reception was well planned and the little details made it wonderful. Homemade jam made by the happy couple were the wedding favors and the cupcake tiered "cake" was a hit! I am so happy I was able to be apart Becca and Michael's special day.

If you are interested in a photographer for your wedding outside of Utah and would like travel information, please contact Abby at or (801) 577-4400.

Sneak Peak of my Weekend

I had an amazing and busy weekend photographing two weddings and doing an additional shoot for a project on Autism Awareness (many posts about this project to come soon).

The first wedding on Friday was at the LDS Draper Temple. I felt this temple really fit with Amy's style because the architecture and style of the building facade is more modern and Amy's wedding had a very modern style. Her reception at the Blue Lemon in Highland had a chic look that Amy enhanced with her decorations. I loved documenting this fun day!

The second wedding was on Saturday at the Holy Trinity Church - a Greek Orthodox Church in Salt Lake City. The ceremony was a gorgeous small ceremony with a total of seven people including the bride, groom, and priest! I loved the intimate feel that remind me of my own wedding (my husband and I only had 8 guests at our wedding ceremony). It was the first greek wedding I have ever seen. The church is beyond gorgeous! The architecture, stain glass and paintings are stunning works of art produced by the finest craftsmen. Some of the materials of the building were imported from Italy and add to the character and beauty of this exquisite building. I felt close to God through my experience there.

Enjoy these teasers until I edit more of the photos!
