So I haven't posted anything in over two years. Really I haven't done anything with my blog in that time. But a lot has happened in my life since I last updated.

In the last two years or so, I have finished college, met and married a wonderful woman, changed jobs a few times, and created lots of new photographs.

Hopefully over the next couple of days or weeks, I'll stay diligent and get some of those photos on here for everyone to see. And hopefully by doing so I can get some more followers.

I should probably also add a disclaimer: the posts and photos that follow this may not necessarily be in chronological order. I'll do my best but there may be a few out of order.

Backyard wedding

These were from a simple backyard wedding I shot. All I can say is that I would have traded my soul for a little cloud cover that day.

More dramatic lighting with Lexi

I had to do some different styles of lighting for my last photography class and of course my friend Lexi was more than happy to model for me. I have more from this shoot, I just forgot to export them. Check back later to see.

Tyson and Jessie engagements

I used to work with Tyson at BYU so when I found out he was engaged, I had to offer my services. Again, another fun couple to work with. It was really windy and cold that day, but they made the best of it. It was kinda hard to take pictures because they were making me laugh.

 I'm still not entirely sure why the kilt was added. As far as I know, Tyson isn't Scottish. But hey, it was  fun and led to some creative shots.

Draper wedding

This was another wedding that I helped Abby with. It was at the Draper temple. Really fun couple. They were goofing off and making jokes the whole time, which helped because the weather wasn't really cooperating that day.

Manti Wedding

So I had the opportunity to be the second shooter for my friend Abby. Seeing how I hadn't shot many weddings before, it was a great chance to get some practice without the stress of a wedding being on my shoulders. Aside from it being really cold that day (you wouldn't guess it by the small amount of snow on the ground), everything went really well. And it helps that it was at Manti which is one of my favorite temples.

Behind the scenes

I really loved the red accents of her dress.

What We Can't Live Without

These are a few of the images from my project in my fine art photography class. I imagined with this project that certain patterns would have developed in what items people chose, but to be honest, my expectations were completely wrong. That aside, I still had a lot of fun doing this series and it pushed me to get creative in how I photograph items. Hope you enjoy.
