morgan + tim || engagements at dead horse point, moab, utah

oooook. i don't even know where to begin. this session with morgan & tim was a total dream. we spent the evening running around dead horse point state park in that perfect late summer light, chatting about their upcoming wedding, work, dogs (of course), and how amazing morgan's dress is! i absolutely love when i get to shoot a couple's engagements and their wedding - it gives them a chance to get used to me running around, so excited to take their photo, and just allows us some casual time to get to know each other a little better. 

i always tell couples before we start shooting that i am not at all expecting them to model for me. in fact, i prefer them not to pose at all, but just to let me direct them, listen to my awful jokes, and i'll do the rest. these two were so, so great. they were up for climbing around on whatever rock i pointed out, and we got to shoot until the sun dipped below the horizon, which is my favorite. :)

cheers to you two! i can't wait to see you again next year for your wedding!!

ricky + eileen || dead horse point proposal, moab, utah

where do i even begin? i mean, i feel like the luckiest person on earth when i get to witness a couple get engaged! okay, i guess i'll start at the beginning...

ricky e-mailed me about 2 months before he and eileen were planning on heading out west from nyc for an extended road trip. he asked if i'd be willing to photograph his proposal on the 4th of july at dead horse point, to which i immediately said YES! i love that park. it's quieter than the others nearby and has spectacular views pretty much no matter where you go. i also loved that in his initial e-mail he took the time to tell me a little of their story. one of the biggest reasons why i love photography so much is because of the way a string of photographs, of still images, can tell a story. so when an individual or couple immediately starts telling me the why behind asking me to take their portraits, i'm in. :)

plus, i don't think we could've asked for a better sunset to go with his proposal! congratulations ricky + eileen on your next adventure together!

mark + flora || red cliffs wedding in moab, ut

mark & flora's day was a total dream. tons of sunshine, a gorgeous ceremony, a field of horses to wander around in, and s'mores to top it all off! i was so excited to meet them for coffee just days before their big day, and as soon as we all sat down i knew this was going to be a fun (and beautiful!) wedding. these two are surrounded by an incredibly loving and supportive group of friends and family, one of flora's friends even played the guitar and sang a beautiful song for their first dance. i just felt so lucky to be there. :)

cheers and all my best to you both!

p.s. if you have the opportunity to finish off your wedding with a bonfire and s'mores bar, do it! it was so much fun!
