Marni's Maternity

This beautiful woman is my life long friend Marni. We met on the first day of the 7th grade, I got pushed and landed on top of her desk and it was love at first sight :) She earned the nickname Squid in Jr. High so thats always what we've called her. We've been through a lot and she's become my 2nd sister. My favorite thing about her is she's not anything anyone else wants her to be. She is so natural and simple and I admire her independent personality. She married a great guy who we all love and supports her so much in her natural life style, so much that he let her be nuts and do an all natural at home birth for their first baby! WHAT A WOMAN! She's amazing in all things and I love her so much. Congrats on your baby girl Squid & Paul!!

The Cutest Little Backyard Wedding

I had the great opportunity to shoot a wedding of a good friend of mine a couple weeks ago. She was on my volleyball team in high school but was much younger than I was so I never got the time to know her. Then as fate would have it, 5 years later, I ended up moving to St. George next door to her big brother and sister-in-law who would quickly become our best friends. Soon after that she moved in with them and she met her handsome fiancé Lewis. This beautiful bride has been through all the ups and downs of life and love and she has finally found an amazing man who will take care of her like she deserves for the rest of her life. We so much appreciate Lewis for stepping in and being the perfect man for our Kayla. Good luck in all your years to come you two! Love you!
My favorite part about shooting weddings is "The Mess Up". EVERY couple I have ever shot has had one and 95% of the time they are adorable mistakes that give the day such a fun memory. 
This one I think topped my list of favorites! 
During the ceremony the groom said "I do" way before he was supposed to and the couple instantly burst into laughter, the groom then turned to the congregation and said "I'M SORRY I'M JUST SO EXCITED!! LETS DO THIS!" ha ha ha!! 
It was so cute and so romantic. I hope he wasn't too embarrassed about that because I bet his new wife thought it was adorable!

Proud to be an American

I had the opportunity to do a really cool session a few months ago and I'm excited and humbled to post about it today. 

>> This is the Kimber family <<
they are an amazing family who has dedicated their lives to serving our country. 
 We got together for this session one week before Kens 4th deployment to Iraq as a Chinook Pilot. 
Ken was part of Operation Iraqi Freedom III which he was gone for 12 months and missed his son Hunters birth, he got to meet Hunter at 8 months old. 
He was part of Operation Iraqi Freedom V-VI in which he was gone 15 months and missed his daughter Kierras' birth, he met her at 10 months old. 
Ken helped transport supplies as well as troops. In June of 2011 he was deployed to Honduras for 6 months where he helped with capturing a Drug Cartel and helped find submarines full of illegal drugs.
 Now he is in Afghanistan for anywhere up to 18 months where they are helping to close things up so that our troops can all come home.
Ken does mission planning, keeping track of troops and has been in the Aviation unit of the Army for 12 years as Chief Warrant Officer Kenneth Kimber.
