East Meet West: A Luxury Destination Wedding 

Devin & Skylar

I will show you how I direct my clients through actions rather than static poses, to get genuine and authentic images of who they are as a couple. We will touch on how I incorporate music, blocking, movement, start and stop prompts, and most importantly how to keep the atmosphere light and relaxed. The shoot will be broken into three unique portfolio-worthy parts. The ceremony will be set against stunning Utah views; the bridesmaids will be nestled in a grove of aspen trees with stunning springtime floral arrangements and a series of wedding details to round out the story. We will incorporate a scene featuring botanical artists and fern sun prints for a unique editorial backdrop that you won’t want to miss. I will be collaborating with a true icon in our industry, Carrie Moe from Type A Society, to elevate the aesthetic and ensure every attendee walks away with a cohesive body of timeless images. Utilizing the raw and unparalleled beauty that Utah has to offer, my shoot will take place at Guardsman Pass Can’t wait to meet you all there!!
