I remember my days at Clearfield High well - scraping together $3 in gas money to get to the Ogden Mall, intercepting report cards in the mail (can't do that anymore), working at Hamblin's Foodtown, and praying I would be on the graduation list.
The Class of 2014 is waaaaay smarter that I was at their age. This is what I've been up to for the last month.
I'm posting a few pictures here to show that it's possible to have one, and only one photographer capture a wedding. A great photographer is always watching for the special candid moments while they are arranging the more traditional shots. I actually witnessed THREE photographers shooting a wedding next to me at the Salt Lake Temple last weekend. Holy cow, it was chaos. The poor couple didn't know where to look, and no one seemed to really be in charge. It was entertaining to say the least, and it did give me a great blog piece here. These are a few pictures that I was able to capture all by my lonesome. Enjoy!
I received this great email last week. She and her fiance came right in and booked the next day. If you feel the same way she does, then we are a match made in photo heaven.
Hi Chris, I recently got engaged to my wonderful fiancé and have been in search for a great photographer. I was previously married for 5 years before, and during my marriage I was always so sad that I had agreed to let a friend photograph my wedding. I was never happy with the pictures and always found myself going back to them and wishing that I had good quality photos to remember the day. Because of that I now know how important having a great photographer is and have looked through countless websites, my facebook was flooded with links to photographers, and friends started offering to take the most important photos of my life. I was getting a little burnt out so I asked my fiancé to start looking at them and to pick his top 5 to show me. He is wonderful and took the challenge and we started going through the websites. Yours was the last one we looked at and I’m sad it wasn’t the first because it would of saved me a lot of time. We both LOVED your website. We love how real you are when you describe yourself and photos on your website, The photobomb tab totally stuck out and made us laugh, your video on the home page is stunning and I LOVE your story and it says a lot that your kept your dad’s business name.
Please let me know when we can set up a time to come meet you. I can’t wait! Thank you for all of your time and I apologize for my whole biography that I just shared with you.
Once again, I made it through my busiest season and loved every minute of it. You can't tell from my lack of blogging, but October to Christmas is my crazy 3 months. Here are just a few great winter pictures.
I think this last one might be my favorite. It's in Memory Grove about 9:00 PM just before Christmas. I turned on my car lights and bounced the light into my reflector for just a tiny bit of fill light on them.
The leaves are in full boom at my place in Layton. These were taken today, Oct 26th, and look at the amazing colors! It will look like this for a few more weeks. We carefully selected trees and plants that would bloom late into the fall so you can have beautiful colors in your pictures right through November.
Give me a call or email today to schedule your fall family portrait! 801-544-9005 or email@example.com.
This last one was taken inside the beautiful Victorian Reception Center.
I believe that's an English term, because it's just what we had yesterday with Naomi and Mark. Naomi is from England, and I LOVED hearing her fantastic accent all day long. She had several family members and friends with her and I could have listened to them all day. It really makes us Americans quite boring.
You never know what kind of weather you are going to get in October. This was definitely as good as it gets!
Like most grooms, Mark could only hold that smile for so long:)
