Salt Lake Utah wedding

A Sneak Peek from Kami’s Wedding at the Salt Lake Temple

This weekend I photographed Kami and Mark’s wedding at the Salt Lake Temple. It was a beautiful and windy spring day. The air was refreshingly brisk and though it never rained, the sky had drama. It made for a great environment to create some very romantic wedding images. I really love weather! Here are a couple early favorites that really stand out to me. This is a great couple and were a blast to work with.

Now that the wedding is shot, I begin the sorting process. I look through each image and begin laying out their big and beautiful album. That is a long process and today is the first overview. And as I was looking at them, I thought it’d be fun to share a few exciting images right now before things get designed. The bride and groom are off on their honeymoon, and I hope they see these gorgeous images today.

Rachelle’s Wedding Album On a Rainy Day at the Salt Lake Temple & Utah State Capitol Building

I’m so excited for you to see Rachelle’s wedding album. You may have seen her bridals in a previous post, but now her album is completely finished.

Here is a video of me showing the album, page by page. It ends with a slideshow of each page so you can really see the images.

Rachelle’s wedding was at the Salt Lake Temple with reception at the Salt Lake Capitol building. The weather report projected bad weather, but the day surprised us. It started out sunny but cool still, but soon turned to a very heavy rainstorm which was a lot of fun photographically and made for some fun wedding memories.

I love weddings for both the romance in the air as well as the artistic challenge involved. I love creating something awesome for each client, no matter what. When you look at this wedding, you’ll notice that every page spread is gorgeous and it doesn’t matter the time of day, location, or weather. The entire album is magical, and for years they will be able to look through this book and remember their day.

Weddings are a big deal to me, and nothing about how I create products for weddings is half-hearted. Every wedding I do is finished in one of my award winning wedding albums like this, as well as an Italian made briefcase to carry the album in. To see more about my wedding albums, see this past blog entry on my wedding albums.

And if you’re getting married, give me a call and let’s talk about your dream images and how I can create something amazing for you.

Until next time, America.

Catelin’s Fall Wedding at the Salt Lake Temple

Last November, I photographed Catelin’s wedding in the beautiful fall colors. While updating my main website, I posted it to display the entire album.

It was a freezing, cold day, yet the images look warm and inviting. Here are some of the double-page spreads from the book. Each graphic folds down the middle in the actual album.

I loved the drama in the sky and the love these two had for each other. It was a wonderful day and a wonderful album.

This couple is really stunning together, and I love the various poses and use of color throughout the book.

As the night drew on, the sunset was surreal and magical.

The great thing about seeing an entire wedding album, is that you get to see how I work all day long. You get to see how great the couple looks and how spectacular the lighting is all throughout the day and into the night. You get to see that I don’t work by hoping to get lucky images, but rather I work to create well-crafted pieces of art created in all lighting environments – through daylight, twilight, nighttime, inside and out.

To see the entire album, visit my main site, BryCox.com. Then go to Portfolio > Wedding > Wedding Albums. Catelin’s album should be the first one to show right now, the “Salt Lake Temple and JSMB in the Fall.”

Now is a great time to get fall portraits. I still have a bit more time with leaves on the ground here at the studio garden location. Give me a call at 801-728-3317.

Until next time, America.

Meghan and Bradley’s Wedding at the Salt Lake Temple

Meghan and Bradley came in to finalize their wedding order, and their album looks amazing!  I’ve sent it off now for final binding and am excited to get it back and finally deliver it to this wonderful couple!  Here are a few page designs from their album.

Each of these are two page spreads, folding in the middle.  I design and print them however each as a large wall print collage.  The resulting album is spectacular that has to be seen in person to really appreciate it.

The design is so fun, so fresh, and really captivates the love and emotions of the wedding day.  We really lucked out that day with a spectacular storm.  It left the sky at the temple cloudy and wonderful, yet the rain stopped during the time we scheduled for photographs.

Later that afternoon though at the bride’s home we were poured on constantly all night.  I love the drama that weather creates, and I love to capture that in photographs.  That stormy day made for some real memories and some wonderful images!

If you’d like to enjoy their entire album design, I’ve posted it on my website as a slideshow here. (Click here to view album as a slideshow.)  In fact, you can view all sorts of slideshows and albums by going to my website and clicking on ‘Slideshows’ on the left menu.

Well thanks for looking and please browse my main website at BryCox.com (or my entire blog if you’re reading this in a separate feed reader BryCox.com/blog).

My Sister’s Wedding at the Salt Lake Temple & JSMB

My sister’s wedding album is all designed and is now off being bound right now.  I should get it back to present to her very soon, but in the meantime, here’s some previews.

This is one of the two-page spreads from the album.  I design so that the images go across the middle of the page, which gives me some fantastic use of space.

I love the mood in these images.  Having the temple in the background and the couple silhouetted in the window is just so beautiful!

And this two-page spread is serene and romantic.  Images of each of them alone, lit by the setting sun, then a couple portrait of the two of them in the same place, leaning up against the Salt Lake Temple, and then on the opposite page a distant image of them farther away from the temple as juxtaposition.

I like circles, especially when it has to to with temple weddings, because in ancient Hebrew, the circle is a symbol for light and eternity — which is true in our modern culture as well.  Framing these two on the left page with circles is a fun way to tie in some powerful symbolism into their heirloom album in a really artistic way.

If you’d to preview the entire wedding and design, check out this slideshow! (click here).  It will open in a new window and will begin playing as soon as it loads, which may take a moment depending on your internet connection.

I’m so excited for my sister to get her finished book.  It was a spectacular and emotional wedding, not to mention that its a real honor to be able to photograph someone in my family and to be apart of the wedding in such a unique way — a way that provides them with a beautiful and artistic heirloom for the rest of their lives.

Stephanie’s Wedding at the Salt Lake Temple

Last week I was teaching a photographic workshop in Florida. I flew home Friday in order to photograph Stephanie’s wedding on Saturday. It was a perfect day and the weather was wonderful! The wedding was at the Salt Lake Temple in the morning and the lights and clouds were perfect!

Here are some of the preliminary images from just my first level of processing.  More artwork will go into the images as they are getting prepped for the album design.

Her reception was at the Ogden Airport at the Kemp Jetway Center.  It was a fabulous location for a reception.  I grew up around planes and even studied as a kid to get my pilot’s license by age 14 (though I didn’t have the money for the flight hours and never got it).  I love airports and therefore had a great time creating moody images using the planes and the location.  Here’s one of my favorites from that location, using the runway and mountains as a background at twilight!

When the album is designed, I will for sure post it here.  In the meantime, if you would like to see some Stephanie’s engagements, you can check them out here: (Stephanie’s Engagements).  There is a wonderful painting there that you will love to see!

Thanks everyone and until next time, America!

Nicole & Ammon’s Wedding at the Salt Lake Temple

What a fun morning.  Today, Nicole and Ammon came in to see their final wedding album design, as a large slideshow projection in the theater, here at the studio.

It is such a beautiful design and I’ve been excited for them to come and see it.  Here is one of  my favorite page spreads from the album.  If you are unfamiliar with my albums, this spread represents two pages, like an open book.

Their wedding was held at the Salt Lake Temple with their reception at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.  They are a great couple and have been very fun to work with.

To see their entire album in slideshow form, click here.  I think you’ll see that they are very photogenic and very much in love.  There is a lot of sparkle in these two which really makes the album amazing!

Until next time, America!

Courtney’s Wedding Album at the Salt Lake Temple

I have another wedding album up online, and it is magical!  Courtney came in today to see her final wedding album design.  I love absolutely this!  The wedding was held at the Salt Lake Temple in Utah with the reception at the Bungalow in American Fork.

I uploaded the design as a slideshow today so you can check it out!

By the way, the slideshow shows the album as an open book, with two pages showing at a time, like the image above which came from her design.

I absolutely love this album.  The couple is so happy and their love really shows.  I’m very proud of my work here; the images are fantastic.  I love the colors, the soft lighting, the ambiance, and the entire feeling of the day and album….not to mention that Courtney looks fantastic.  To see some of her bridals, refer back to this blog entry.

Come in to the studio to see this design close-up, or if you’d like me to do a wedding for you, or even just some bridal portraits, then give me a call.

Until next time, America!

Karily’s Wedding at Salt Lake Temple & La Caille

I posted the slideshow for Karily’s wedding today. You have to see this one! It is fantastic! It was in December at the Salt Lake Temple, with the reception held at La Caille.

I love the vivid colors and how happy and in love the couple is, and the entire flow of the album.

Karily\'s Wedding

Click either the photo (album spread) above, or click here to see the slideshow. And remember, my album slideshows are laid out to show two pages at a time, as if the album is open (like the spread above).

I want my albums to tell the story of the couple’s day, and quality is everything to me, down to the smallest details. I personally design each album. Every page is laid out for flow, harmony, balance, and impact, without the use of pre-designed templates or other shortcuts.

Notice too how the album tells the story of the couple’s day, from beginning to end!

Enjoy, and until next time, America!
