Provo Canyon & Provo Library Bridal Portraits

Charity, one of her good friends and I all met at early dawn outside the Provo City Library to begin her Bridal Portraits the morning before her wedding. I had met Charity twice before, at the epic failure of her and Michael's first attempt at an engagement session in Eagle Mountain where it poured down buckets of rain (and we were not exactly prepared or expecting it), and the second attempt, which went so much better!

We started at the Provo Library, and then made our way up Provo Canyon to get some more of those gorgeous Wasatch Mountains Charity loves, and we even spotted a waterfall too! (Was it Bridalveil Falls?)

Corvallis Wedding Photography, Teller Wildlife Refuge Corvallis Montana Wedding Reception (Ali & Brady's Wedding)

Okay, it's here, the GRAND FINALE of weddings! Ali is a pastry chef at the Black Cat Bake Shop in Missoula, and her awesome crew and friends helped supply the amazing desserts at her barn reception at the Slack Barn at The Teller Wildlife Center in Corvallis. Her [now] husband's family, the Halland's, own Charlie Coffee & Chocolate and are at the Missoula farmer's markets every weekend! They supplied the coffee. Our friend "Jack" supplied the other beverages. (chuckle)  Bambi and friends looked on as the band Whiskey Rebellion rocked out- until the power blew- and Ali and Brady's first dance got ever so slightly delayed by a half hour or an hour or so while we all hung out in the dark as the sun began to set over the Montana landscape. They finally found the breakers and fixed it, we got everything hooked back up and everyone was still dancing away when I drove off into the night-- and a BUCK tried to ram my car while I slowed to grab one last shot of the Teller. Scared the CRAP out of me and I screamed bloody murder. LOL

Sutro Bath Engagement Photography (Michelle & Clark)

Michelle and Clark met me at sunrise at the historic Sutro Baths in San Francisco. It was freezing cold, Michelle was in sky high heels, and we were at the top of a cliff. Clark, being a superman in disguise, and even though Michelle was a terrific sport, Clark threw Michelle right over his shoulder anyway and carried her the rest of the way down the trail when she just couldn't go anymore! :)

We also took a quick little detour over to Portero Hill for some views of the city. San Francisco is where Clark and Michelle got engaged and it is a very special place for them! :)
