Audrey’s Winter Wedding Full Album Design, Salt Lake City LDS Temple

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is delivering the final album to my clients. After all the countless hours of photography, retouching, and design, there is nothing as dramatic and impactful as seeing the images in their final physical form.

My award-winning wedding albums are the finest available. They’re best seen in person to fully appreciate them because the images are crystal clear and jump off the page. Hopefully you can get a good idea watching this video where I share both Audrey’s abstract painted canvas as well as every page of her album design.

This wedding was on a frigid winter day at the Salt Lake City LDS Temple in Utah. You’ll notice too that we have a variety of lighting conditions from indoors, outdoors, sunny, shade, sunset, twilight, and even nighttime. Most photographers are unable to shoot consistently in varying lighting conditions, yet here you’ll notice that we have great skin tones, wonderfully deep skies and backgrounds, and romantic expressions throughout. Every image and page of her album is impactful and tells the story of their day.

In the video I zoom in on her painted canvas to show the brush strokes, and here is the painting below. I love creating unique pieces of personal art for people, and this is going to look so beautiful in their home for many years to come.

I’m so excited to deliver everything to Audrey. Her wedding was so romantic and gorgeous and we had so many wonderful photographs to design her album with, that you can hardly tell the day was frigid cold. You may have seen some of the early favorites on my blog and Instagram from her wedding, and I think it’s even better to see how the entire wedding collection came together in it’s final presentation.

Below are some of her page designs though you can see them in HD using the video above too. You’ll notice ice skaters from the Gallivan Center ice rink in the video too. Audrey’s reception was next door and the skating rink and it’s vivid colors made for a great backdrop.




If you’re getting married, I’d love to create something like this for you too. Give me a call at 801-728-3317.

Billy & Kim’s Destination Jewish Wedding in Scottsdale, Arizona

Earlier I shared a few sneak peek images from Billy & Kim’s destination Jewish wedding in Scottsdale, Arizona held at sunset on top of the Valley Ho Hotel. Well here is their entire wedding album. This video shows the outside cover, display box, and every page of the book.

It is best viewed full screen in HD.

And here are some of my favorite story-telling images from the book. But of course the video shows even more and puts these in context.

If you’re getting married, check out this info and then give me a call. 801-728-3317. Whether your wedding is here in Utah or requires travel, I’ll provide wonderful photographs of your day. I’ve been hired to shoot all over the USA and even in other countries. Why? Because you get someone you know you can trust (rather than hoping the local photographer will do a good job), and you get a great price. If you compare my prices to photographers with my same national rankings and skill level, you’ll see that I charge less and offer more.

My clients have found that the cost of flying me to their wedding actually saves them money, and it gives them peace of mind knowing that their exclusive and beautiful wedding will be perfectly and artistically captured.

And until next time, America.

Jared and Paige’s Full Wedding Album, Event Held at Hub 801 Events in Ogden Utah

I’ve had so many fun shoots to share, I’ve been wanting to share this wedding album design for a while. So as February comes to an end and warmer weather starts coming in, it begins to feel more like spring – and that means that couples are getting engaged. So it’s a great time for me to share this wonderful wedding and album design from Jared and Paige’s wedding, held in Ogden Utah at the Hub 801 Events Center.

You may have seen some of their early sneak peek images. But now, here is their entire design, in a movie/slideshow format. This is best viewed large, full screen and in HD (if your internet connection allows).

There is so much more that can’t fit in an album, and I actually make a larger video slideshow for my wedding couples that show the full wedding story, showing all the other images. I won’t share it here because those shows are very long. To balance size and cost, wedding albums highlight the the most impactful images from a couple’s wedding day story, with the images being as large as possible so that they can be seen and enjoyed.

One of the hardest parts of a wedding is cutting the images down to the best of the best for the album. if I included everything I loved, the albums would be very large and expensive. But the good news is that I include digitals of all the other great images that don’t make it in the physical album. Here is one such set of images, a series of me doing a warm-up routine with the kids using my little stuffed bunny. I do this so that the kids aren’t scared or worried about me later when it comes time to photograph them. That way when it comes time to photograph them, I can just interact with them and get real expressions that are truly authentic and captivating.

Normally I don’t get pictures of me doing warm ups like this, but there happened to be a mirror opposite me. With my light already set up, I was able to get a few shots off-hand of this little girl climbing up on the couch and suggesting that we “put our heads together” and cooperate to keep my bunny from falling off my head.

And here are some of the wedding album page designs fro the album. First, opening the book with a great, romantic image that establishes the location of the wedding.

Here are some of the wonderful moments from the wedding ceremony.

I always love to get some updated family photographs of both sides of the family.
And of course the creative and romantic couple portraits. We did a variety of indoor and outdoor photographs, even using the city’s setting sun in some images.

And the album closes with them running off and driving away.These are just some of the wedding album spreads, so to see the entire design, watch the movie above.

Jared and Paige’s album was delivered in a beautiful box and case that utilizes a clear, magnetic top. It’s great for display, but also protects the album when it’s not in use.

If you’re getting married and would like to talk more about weddings, prices, and options, please give me a call. I’d love to show you more and hear what you love and are looking for in wedding photography. 801-728-3317

Gregory & Natalie’s Wedding Album Design

What an honor it was to be apart of Gregory and Natalie’s wedding day love story.  They are from Tennessee and flew in to Utah to get married here at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake.  While dating, they had a great trip to Utah and decided it was the place for their romantic wedding.

Here are a couple page layouts from their final wedding album design.  You can see the entire wedding album as a slideshow by clicking on any one of the pages.

The day started off with Natalie getting pampered in the Grand’s spa.  Later, they began to get ready for the ceremony in their hotel room.

Keep in mind that these page layouts that you see here are actually double-page spreads.  They fold in the middle, so you are really seeing two pages up at a time.

Later the ceremony began out on one of the balconies overlooking the beautiful city and Salt Lake valley.

Gregory and Natalie flew out of town for this wedding to be in a quiet and serene place away from everyone.  This made it a very  unique wedding to photograph because there weren’t crowds of people — just us, the couple and me.  In fact, the hotel’s concierge and I were asked to be wedding witnesses.  Here we are signing the papers.

After the ceremony, we went about creating fantastic and romantic images of the two of them.  I love this double-page spread of the two of them kissing in the hotel’s courtyard.

We even walked around the streets of Salt Lake creating photographs for their album.  And though Gregory and Natalie are not Mormon, they love the city and the beautify of the iconic temple in the center of town.  So we stopped there to create a few images as well.

This was a wonderful and emotional day.  I loved being apart of their day and spent a lot of time designing the absolute perfect wedding album for them.  If you’d like to see their entire wedding album design as a slideshow, click here.
