Goal #94- Shoot my brother's wedding

When I was choosing the 101 goals to do in 1001 days my brother was not married but I was hoping he would be before March of 2012 :). Well, Dale was married this past Saturday to a wonderful girl named Leisa in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple of the LDS Church. I was so excited (and slightly nervous!!) to photograph their wedding. And despite the 20 degree weather and 15 mph wind chill it was a beautiful day. I edited the images below on a laptop so I hope that the colors aren't too far off. Thank you Dale and Leisa for allowing me to capture this special day for you! Enjoy Spain!

I was lucky to arrive at the Temple as the sun was coming up.

These two were so happy the entire day!

We came around this side and the wind literally just sucked the breath out of us.

Love how this one turned out!

So beautiful and so happy!

The smartest thing Leisa did was choose to wear snow boots instead of regular shoes.


Thanks for being such a good sport Leisa and taking your cape off for this one! :)
LOVE you both so much!! Welcome to the family Leisa!

Contest just in time for the holidays!

****Contest is closed*****

I wanted to do a contest for those families who helped make this first year in business so great! Each one hired and trusted me enough to capture their family dynamics and for that I am grateful. I have grown so much this year and I hope to continue to grow into 2010 and beyond.

To say thank you to my families I have chosen my favorite images from family sessions and included them in this post for you all to vote on in the comments section. The contest starts now and will end Sunday December 6th at 8pm Central time. Each person may vote once so pick your favorite! The winning image will receive a $100 print credit (digital images and holiday cards excluded). So get voting and spread the word so that your image can win! :)

**Please leave your name along with your comment. :) Thanks!!**
