I found Trent and Rachael at a wedding I was shooting. I spotted her flowy anthropologie dress and I knew that she needed to be mine.
I didn’t know they were engaged… I didn’t know how serious they were… but one thing led to another and they told me their date was coming up!
They already had a photographer. Her Aunt. I get it… I get it. There’s always a friend, an uncle, a roommate… Everyone already has a photographer in their life. Which is sad that I wasn’t her Aunt. BUT! I’ll take what I can get! She wanted her bridal session shot by me which I was super duper excited about. We decided to photograph the session at the LDS Salt Lake Temple which is where they would be married. It’s always such a great idea to get these photos taken in fantastic golden hour lighting and it also alleviates some stress on the big day.
When I saw Rachael’s gown I screamed! Then I jumped up and down. Then I got to work!
We started shooting and the weather was FABULOUS! Sunny sky and delicious light.
ENTER CLOUDS. 🙁
It started to get darker and I felt the change in the air. I knew that something bad was headed our way. So we quickened our pace and I made sure to knock out the traditional must have photos before the storm came. We shot until the last possible second. In fact, I was in the middle of shooting the groom’s headshots when a gust of wind and dirt blew into our faces… then thunder… then big drops of rain!
WE RAN FOR OUR LIVES!
It ended up being a shorter session than normal, but I was able to get as many if not more than I usually get because this couple was so candid and natural. OH! And her dress was amaze. I didn’t need to send my assistant into the shot to fix a train every 5 seconds. It just fell where it needed to and was easy breezy.
SUPER FUN. SUPER GORG.
You two are amazing and I’m so honored to have taken your photos! Thanks you two, and CONGRATS!
