michael & amanda. engagements.

i'd like to introduce you to michael & amanda.

they decided to get married on the coolest day ever--my birthday!!

that makes them cool.  ;)

and here are some lovelies from their engagement session.

we started out at gilgal gardens in salt lake city... totally michael & amanda's idea.
it was really fun for me to have a different location and they wanted something unique for their photos.
so it worked out for the both of us!

isn't she gorgeous?  gah!  michael is one lucky guy.

i especially love this one:

and this one: 

such pretty light.

and then for some reason i always like to do some goofy shots on my shoots.  i think it helps people relax more and produces real smiles.

these are classic:

thanks, michael & amanda!

mike & sarah

mike & sarah have been married now for a few years and wanted to have a couples shoot, which i think is a great idea!  it was fun working with already-marrieds.

they both hold a special place in their hearts for Utah State so we decided to take some pictures on campus.

we nearly got rained out for the like the 5th time in a row, but we managed to get a quick shoot in.

here are my favorites from the shoot:

thanks, mike & sarah!
