Utah Adventures- Fine Art Photography

 

Utah Adventures- Fine Art Photography

My first adventure in 2017 included a trip to Provo, Utah. Not only did I have the opportunity to explore Salt Lake City, Provo and Park City ( sundance film festival ) but I had the opportunity to photograph freelance model/ makeup artist and YouTube queen Alexa Kait. We rented the amazing Be More Studios for the day and created magic together.

My next stop was to the Ice castles in Midway, Utah. I have always dreamed about these incredible castles and having the opportunity to explore them first hand was a dream come true. The ice castles are straight out of a fairy tale.

I was so excited to visit Park city, Utah and experience my first sundance film festival. I was lucky enough to even view a film. The film I saw was called “Legion of Brothers” and was very inspiring. I would definitely recommend visiting Utah during the film festival and trying to see as many films as possible.

I cannot wait to see what adventures the rest of 2017 has in store for me!

Longwood Gardens is one of the most magical places to explore during the winter.  My favorite thing is to stroll through the gardens while sipping hot chocolate. Longwood Gardens makes for the perfect winter adventure.

Starting 2017 off with photographing the Hayley Paige trunk show is a dream come true. I have been a huge fan of Hayley Paige for forever and having the opportunity to witness her working with brides to customize there gowns for there wedding day was unbelievable.

Vintage Christmas

I was thrilled when the gorgeous ladies of Lulabelle fashion, The Mother Chic and Chic by Alison Rose invited me to there holiday photo shoot. I was even more excited to photograph these stunning ladies. This Christmas inspiration was set by Ashley Meyer’s owner of Lulabelle fashion. Her 1950’s ranch home set the stage for this beautiful holiday party. The table was set with her grandmother’s china and silverware and mixed with a touch of modern decor. The fur runner, topiaries, natural wood trees and gold speckled glasses are from Home goods. The table cloth and chargers are from Target. And the leafy chargers are from Pier1. Not only did Ashley create the most unique Christmas table but she also styled Alison from Chic by Alison Rose and  Lindsey from The Mother Chic. The dresses are all from Ashley’s vintage collection. If this holiday scene doesn’t get you in the mood for Christmas, I don’t know what else will. Thank you to these special ladies for allowing me into there winter wonderland for a very special holiday shoot.
