I was prepping some images for company I adore (details to come soon!) and they requested a few from this beautiful session I shot a couple years ago of my beautiful friend Aimee (and baby Millie in utero). I just had to share a few of these sweet, moody images that didn’t make the original post. I love them even more now than I did then.

Mackenzie + Seth // Utah Wedding Photographer

I can honestly say this is my favorite bridal session of my career – because what greater honor is there than photographing your little sister in her wedding gown? Of course we had to shoot in studio and on location, I really just wanted to go all out.  Kenz, you are breathtaking and I couldn’t be more thrilled for you and Seth. Lots of love.

photo native styled shoot // utah wedding photographer

Honestly, there are no words to describe the magic of this collaboration. I feel so blessed to have been able to be an instructor at Photo Native this year and create this styled shoot for such a wonderful class! Allison Baddley (La Fete Floral) and I spent months trying to scheme up the perfect balance between modern, clean lines and a hint of whimsy. We wanted the shoot to have layers of black, white, gray and cognac with a pops of color in the floral elements.  So much work goes into putting together a shoot like this and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner for the job! I hope you enjoy this shoot even a bit as much as I enjoyed photographing it. My amazing vendors are listed below, I can’t thank you all enough.

Lauren + Chris // Newport Beach Wedding

A wedding with AMOROLOGY is always a treat, and Lauren and Ryan’s nuptials were no exception! I always love to shoot in Southern California and the LDS Newport Temple is just so gorgeous. I am especially thrilled that it was featured on GREEN WEDDING SHOES today! Here’s what they had to say…

“Inspired by their love for the beautiful outdoors, Lauryn’s desire for lots of green and candles and, most of all, Coldplay’s “A Sky Full of Stars” – the song that reminds them of one another – Lauryn + Ryan’s whimsical, rustic wedding is sure to inspire.

They worked with the amazing team at Amorology to bring that vision to life + entrusted Jessica Kettle Photography to capture all the details. Sheridan from Amorology shares, To create their evergreen wedding we created a place setting of plates and glassware that mixed gold, deep mauve, blush and burgundy tones on top of wooden tables and chairs resembling the strongest trees only found deep in the beautiful forest. Each place setting had a card designed by the talented Peanut Press Creative (who also created the couple’s invitation suite) that read “Cause in a sky full of Stars, I think I found you” from the couple’s favorite song. Beautiful soft blush table runners set the foundation for romantic florals by Twigg Botanicals. The centerpieces incorporated dahlias, anemones, and garden roses in different shades of burgundy, blush and ivory with plenty of greenery to go around. Candles and lovely fall pears were scattered down the middle of the tables to help set the romantic feeling for the evening.”
