We’ve been best friends with Cody’s older sister (Morgan of InFrames Photography) since Middle School, and so when she asked us to come film her younger brother finally getting to say “I Do” to the girl he’s been in love with since Middle School, there was no way we were going to pass up that chance. Hannah and Cody are an absolute dream! This one was extremely personal for us, and to get to watch the beautiful bride walk down the aisle while everyone cried was a moment we will never forget. Not to mention these guys throw an amazing dance party. We are beyond honored to have been able to be filming Cody and Hannah’s wedding day!
Hands down Alec & Natalie have some of the best speeches we’ve ever heard. They lasted in total about an hour and a half because these two had SO many people have SO many wonderful things to say about the two of them. We did our best to include the best parts of all of them but man oh man was it hard! They’ve known and loved each other for so long and so this day was a long-time coming for these two. It was absolutely magical to be able to witness such a momentous day. They were married by Natalie’s older brother in the sweetest ceremony, and there were plenty of tears shed throughout the whole thing, some of which may or may not have been by the two of us…. haha. We are thrilled for Alec + Natalie and so grateful they chose us to be there to capture this day for them!
The most absolutely stunning parts of Courtnee & Jaden’s wedding day were the hand-picked details. Courtnee designed and constructed all of her own tables capes. She literally conceptualized her dress design and had someone make it for her after she drew it out for them. Their ceremony backdrop was customized with quotes and pictures. Each and every detail was so well-thought out and personalized that it was truly amazing to see. We’ve had the pleasure of knowing Courtnee since high school, and so we’ve been able to watch her and Jaden fall in love and stay in love, with that once-in-a-lifetime-soul-mate kind of love. They really and truly love each other with everything they have. This intimate backyard Bear Lake Destination Wedding was seriously one of a kind and we are so glad we got to be there to witness these two finally become husband and wife.
Ok, is San Diego not the most magical, beautiful place on the planet? How lucky were we to be able to film Amanda + Shawn’s amazing wedding here this Fall? Not only were we stoked to come back to Southern California, but we also were so excited to learn more about the traditional Chinese ceremonies Amanda and Shawn would be incorporating into their day, including a tea ceremony in the morning, and then blending that in with a temple wedding, ring ceremony, and dinner reception in the evening? We had an absolute blast and could not have felt any more welcomed by both families during the day. We were also SO happy to be able to work with Scott Hickenlooper from The Hickenloopers, whom we’d worked with the previous year at Ali and Matt’s October wedding and got along with so well. They do SUCH gorgeous work and we could not have been more thrilled to get to work them again on such a gorgeous day. Check out the full video below!
Rhyss & Andrew have the sweetest love story. We were completely blown away by their vows and the amount of love that permeated every inch of their wedding day. We kept turning to each other all day and saying "Wow, how lucky are we to be here?" Ever since the moment they contacted us we were completely in-love with the two of them and knew they were perfect for each other. They are hilarious and genuine, and together they possess one of the purest loves we have ever been lucky enough to witness. Every detail of the day was perfect, from the flowers to the cakes to the hand-calligraphy, to the gorgeous wedding arch. Press play to hear the sweetest vows you will probably ever hear in your life. We are so grateful to have been a part of this perfect day.
This was our first time shooting on location at Thanksgiving Point - and it just happened to be totally, completely freezing! Not that it even bothered us because working with this group was so fun (and Morgan handled it like a complete champ in her gorgeous short-sleeved wedding dress). These two are absolutely one of the most genuine couples we've ever had the pleasure of working with. They were so sweet, so very welcoming, and so completely enamored with each other. And working with Bailey from Bailey Ranae Photo was a complete blast! She is hilarious and so much fun to work with. We definitely hit the jackpot with this shoot. Check out the video below of Morgan and Connor's romantic first look!
We have been so lucky to be able to know Chandlar for the last five years - we were on our high school dance company with her and are absolutely in love with her sweet spirit and pure, genuine energy! How lucky are we to have been able to film such a magical day for her? This is one of our favorite bridal sessions we've ever done - it was so simple and romantic and Chandlar + Cody were so in their own perfect little world right before they said they vows. It was so much fun to be able to catch up with old friends at her reception while we filmed! The whole thing felt like family. Watch the full video to see their sweet first look, exchange their vows, and dance the night away!
These two are SO much fun! It was constant laughing and teasing between the two of them all night long. They are so clearly each others very very best friends! We are allllll for it. We also definitely insta-stalked Kimmy before her wedding and she gets the award for most hilarious instagram captions ever. Safe to say we are obsessed with these two. We wanted to create a fun, upbeat, home-movie style video for them to match their happy, carefree love! This was also our first time shooting at both the Provo LDS Temple and The White Shanty in Provo. It was honestly the perfect venue for Kimmy + Ely! Can we just say that Winter weddings are completely underrated? These two did everything perfectly. Join in on the fun below!
We got to run around Salt Lake City with Carolina from Carolina Lindsay Photography and Ricardo from Ricardo Quintana Photography for this amazing city wedding! We had met Carolina several years back and have always been completely obsessed with her work. She is a truly gorgeous human inside and out! We were so lucky to have been able to work alongside these two amazing artists and meet this amazing couple.
Ryan and Thalia were married in a traditional Catholic ceremony in the oldest Catholic Church in Salt Lake City, the Cathedral of the Madeleiene. Their wedding was full of gorgeous, intricate details, and it is safe to say that Thalia wore one of the most gorgeous dresses we've ever seen. Thalia is actually a local Spanish musician, so it was great to meet her in person after hearing so much of her music! She and Ryan are the most gorgeous couple. After their ceremony, we got to run around Salt Lake and finish off the evening with a gorgeous rooftop reception on top of the Capital Theater in Downtown Salt Lake City. We had such an amazing fun day and are so happy to be able to share the finished video with you all!
We were also lucky enough to have been featured in Utah Bride & Groom for this wedding! You can check out that feature here
We feel so lucky to have been asked last minute (literally a few days before their wedding) to fly out to Seattle to film this gorgeous destination wedding. We were also lucky enough to be able to shoot with one of our best friends, Morgan from In Frames Photography! If you don't know Morgan, you absolutely should, because she is a DREAM to work with and will make you feel comfortable, relaxed, and happy on your wedding day. Every single shot she did from this day turned out amazing!
This was a truly unforgettable day. From seeing Seattle for the first time, to meeting the most gorgeous couple to ever exist, to witness their perfect Sodo Park reception, to getting to do it all together with our best friends. It was absolute perfection! This turned out to be one of our favorite videos to date. Check it out to see every gorgeous detail of their day!
These two lovebirds are getting married next week and we could not be more excited! They chose the most gorgeous location for their bridals and first look last week. It was a whole family affair and we loved hanging out and getting to know these two and their family while we filmed! Their bridals were shot by Ashley's brother, which is so sweet and sentimental for them! We can't believe how perfectly suited these two are for each other. Seriously a match made in heaven.
Everything about this gorgeous Summer wedding at This Is The Place Heritage Park was absolute perfection. Kristine and Truman are the most gorgeous couple! They compliment each other so perfectly, and their vows made everyone at the wedding tear up. We absolutely love how the party they threw to celebrate their love! It suited them to a tee, and we had the best time hanging out with them on their wedding day. We also love the idea of doing a first look with the groom as well as the Father of the Bride! How sweet is that? These guys are completely amazing. Press Play below to hear their vows and take a look at their gorgeous mountain bridals!
These two are so fun! They had one of the best groups of bridesmaids and groomsmen we've ever gotten to work with. It was such a blast running around with them all day, getting to experience the cool mountain air. What better way to tie the knot then amongst the gorgeous trees up at Snowbird? We are a huge fan of having weddings at the venue there, they always turn out amazing! And guys - you absolutely cannot miss the amazing cake smash these two had! Hands down the best one we've ever seen. It really takes the cake (lol get it?). Not to mention the amazing Mother/Son dance! There are honestly too many amazing parts of this day to list out here, so you'll definitely need to watch to get the full experience.
Mallory + Nicholas had the most gorgeous, romantic, simplistic Southern Utah Bridals, complete with a stunning vintage lace dress and intricately detailed bouquet. The way Nicholas looks at Mallory has got to be one of the sweetest things we've ever seen. These two are so in love it was impossible not to feel it radiate in every corner over the room.
We are so happy to have met these two sweethearts! They were so kind and welcoming and know how to throw a serious dance party! These two are the epitome of why we do what do - they just radiate a genuine love for each other and we felt so lucky to have been there. Also, working with Talia from Talia Photography was a dream come true! Everything about this day was perfection.
We absolutely adore these two! They couldn't have picked a more gorgeous location for their First Look. We definitely got teary-eyed when Zach saw his gorgeous bride for the first time. Ashley is one of the sweetest souls and we love how in-love these two are. We feel so blessed to have met them and be a part of these magical moments.
Bella happens to be one of our greatest friends from High School - we danced together with her for 3 years! She is deeply caring, whip smart, and absolutely hilarious. Getting to film her wedding was such an honor! We are so happy Bella found Jake and so grateful for how happy they make each other! (Also, sorry Bella, but insert Twilight: New Moon joke right here.... hahaha). Also, we've said it before and we'll say it again, Winter Weddings are totally underrated! (P.S. Don't miss the amazing balloon send-off at the end of this video!)
Say hello to one of the classiest & coolest couples that ever lived! Derrick & Lydia are some of the coolest, most laid back people we have had the pleasure of filming. This Grand America wedding was a stunner. Their wedding day was a completely love-filled occasion. There would be moments where Lydia would be in mid-conversation with a guest, & yet would reach out to gently touch Derrick's arm or wrap his arm around her without even looking his way, making everyone in the room take notice. These subtle acts of love could be found throughout the day & were accompanied by a lot of laughter & sweet smiles from ear to ear. I mean, just watch the video! Have you ever SEEN a happier groom?? Doubtful. Capturing moments like the way Derrick looks at his bride are what makes this job the very best.
CEREMONY: Salt Lake LDS Temple
RECEPTION VENUE: The Grand America Hotel
This was our first time shooting at the Salt Flats and let us just say - it was totally worth the two hour drive out there. We couldn't believe what we were missing out on! First look videos are always one of our favorite things to shoot and this one was one of the greats - Sam is seriously in love with Amanda and kept saying to all of us that he couldn't believe he gets to marry her. These are two of the absolute sweetest human beings with a love so genuine you can't miss it. Amanda's sassy, dry quips had us laughing all night (while we weren't basking in the glow of their gorgeous love and that amazing light on the Salt Flats). Check out Sam's reaction and Amanda's gorgeous details of her dress in the video below!

After shooting Aubrey & Tyler's first look video a few weeks before, we couldn't have been more excited to be at their wedding. These two simply have the sweetest love! Being able to hear the speeches at their luncheon about how they met was so special (not to mention the adorable detail of them serving french toast to their guests). Hanging out with them at the temple was a dream because they were so dreamily in love with each other. And can we just talk about how fun the party was? It was a party from beginning to end, and what better way to celebrate the start of their life together. Check out these sweet details below!
