Ode to the tulips! Oh Thanksgiving Point… is there anything more stunning or beautiful? Nate and Kimi are having a garden wedding. In fact most of their wedding is themed with floral designs and such. This was the absolute perfect setting for their engagement session. Usually I shoot bridals here, but I knew what Kimi’s […]

I don’t know why I didn’t post these earlier. Haylie was married in the summer and we shot her bridal session in the Thanksgiving Point large gardens. What’s the best part about shooting in these gardens? Well, my personal opinion is the golf cart. I always get to drive it too! Fabulous! It’s super tricky […]

I always leave some room during the session to have a little fun. If you are in need of family portraits in the winter season there are only a couple of great spots to shoot. Thanksgiving Point is one of those! There’s a $75 photo pass that you’ll need to purchase, but it’s definitely worth […]

I had such a blast at Kristyn’s bridal session. Kristyn is from Colorado, so she had her friend come. Typically the bride’s mom comes, but in this case Kristyn was really candid and silly and fun. It was so great to capture all of the laughs. I LOVED it! McKenzie DeakinsUtah Wedding Photographerwww.photographybymckenzie.com
