Five years ago Ben and I started dating. After a few weeks, he took me to meet his aunt and uncle and cousins. (We were in college in Utah; Ben’s family lived in Virginia so we couldn’t just go to his parents’ for dinner.) That was the first time I met Jeni. She was a […]

The funny thing about love is that it can’t be bounded by…anything. You find a spark of it, continue to create it, and it will thrive no matter where in the world you are. Fany and Jared met in Marseilles, France. Jared is American – he was completing an internship through BYU – and saw […]

Peter and Melece are one of those couples that just belong. After five years of marriage – and even more of best friendship! – they know each other. Capturing their love for their fifth anniversary was so fun for me, and I loved including their pup, Baymax. Peter and Melly met when their freshman year […]

I absolutely love photographing people who adore each other! This session was easily one of my favorites. I mean, they all are. But this one is a special fave.
