Best Dam Bridals

 So after getting ready and the big reveal (if you haven't seen those pictures, you really should). I took Alli and Jordan to a park by a dam and bridge.  We did the bridals shots the night before the wedding, so the big day wouldn't be too hectic.

I love the variety of scenery at this park.  I love that it is a little unexpected.  I love that Alli and Jordan are so photogenic!

 This guy has some moves!
 The dress had a stunningly beautiful train, and the steps were a perfect place to show it off!
 The colors of the peacock feather make Alli's eyes pop.  So gorgeous.
 Jordan and Alli were so smitten and cute with each other.
 We took lots of pictures.  Hundreds.  And just when Alli had enough... in fact she had taken off the skirt of the dress and was only in the puffy slip thingy getting ready to go home... we plopped the green velvet chair in the middle of a wildflower patch and told her to smile.
And she rocked it!

More wedding day pictures coming soon.

The first peek...

 It is a magical moment when a couple about to be married sees each other for the first time dressed up as a bride and groom.  (And it is so fun to catch the magic on camera!)
This couple did the couples photo shoot the evening before the wedding... so I made sure to be there for the big reveal!
Alli's dress was from a beloved aunt, the shoes were her sister's, the veil from her sister-in-law, the necklace from her mom... all the women in the family put this bride together!
 There was plenty of laughing and jokes and fun...

But then there were breath-taking moments of love and joy.
When Alli's dad saw his little girl in the wedding dress for the first time, his jaw dropped.  And it stayed dropped for a long moment.
 She was quite stunning.

Meanwhile, Jordan was outside, just around the corner, waiting to see his bride-to-be.
Here she comes!!

Then he saw her for the first time. 

"Awww. Come here Baby."

 Well done.

(And there I am in the stripey shirt with the backpack.  Clicking away!)

Then it was off to the park for a whirlwind bridal session! 

Check back for the bridal portraits soon!

Adam and Cami... bridals

 We just got back from a mega vacation in Utah.  We drove out there to visit family and for a wedding!

Meet my newest sister-in-law...
Cami and Adam met us on Temple Square in Salt Lake City for some pre-wedding photos.

Let me explain something here.  There are two other talented photographers in my husband's family:  Betsy (see her work here) and Chris (his work here).  Betsy and I took pictures of the happy couple on Temple Square.  Betsy is so much fun to shoot with! 

 The grounds were stunning... a perfect backdrop for Cami and Adam.

I love how this turned out... like a painting...
 Cami was so much fun to work with! 
 When it started getting too dark, we drove up above Memory Grove and got just a few more shots...
 So gorgeous!  The bride looked amazing and the views were breathtaking!
Stay tuned for more pictures of Adam and Cami!
