Hearth Magazine + Kickstarter

My photography website has been very neglected as of late, but for a good reason. For as long as I have wanted to shoot a camera, I have wanted to shoot work for magazines. My sister Brenda and I have talked about doing a publication for almost 10 years, and last year we decided we should do it. Hearth Magazine was born by way of an online journal on February 11, 2013 and we hit the ground running.

Volume 1, which was about the beauty of Summer Traditions started selling in June and we hope to have Volume 2 to the masses by September. But we need your help. We decided to start a Kickstarter project to help raise funds for Volume 2.

Please help us by checking out our project and by pledging as much as you can.

So much love,

Easter Brunch By Petal Pixie

Yes it has been 6 months since I blogged, but I have a very good reason… It isn’t that I haven’t been shooting though. This spring I shot a beautiful styled shoot with my dear friend Kim of Petal Pixie. When we get together for a shoot, there is more laughter and teasing than actual shooting and styling, but I wouldn’t change a thing! Love that girl.

Kim is so talented and I love shooting her work. If you are planning a wedding, STOP and hire her for you flowers AND event planning. She is wonderful.

This beautiful Bridal Shower Brunch was featured on Salt Lake Bride and Groom a few months ago. So grateful.

DIY BBQ Engagement Party

One of the things I love most about my job is working with so many talented wedding vendors who have a passion for what they do. A few months ago I had the pleasure to photograph a shoot for my very good friend Kim with Petal Pixie. She is an amazing floral and event designer and I love her to pieces. Kim wanted to bring back an old tradition of an engagement party, but keep a fun and relaxed atmosphere. I love this shoot and I love the vendors who collaborated on it. I also want to thank Wedding Chicks for featuring this shoot on their beautiful blog this morning.

Please be sure to check out all of the amazing vendors who helped on this shoot! Also, Wedding Chicks will be posting the Mason Jar Pie recipes and the DIY today and tomorrow so watch for that!
