where oh where?

photos courtesy of stareater & KimFiske13 on here
lately i have been wondering what to do with my life... For the past 4 months i have been looking into colleges and contacting other photographers in other states, trying to find a job as a nanny, or any job at all. I have lived in Utah for almost 21 years now and i am ready to get out! I have ruled out art schools because lets face it.. those are just too expensive, but i had a lovely chat with the wise Nicole Hill. She told me just to find a photog i love in cali, work for them, attend a community college there, and get my degree. Mother thinks i should go to New York and do the same. Hmmm i love both CA and NY. I guess it all depends on housing, a job, school, money... you know just the little details. haha. So i am stuck. And in a rut. I am ready to get out on my own and live in another state.

{Even though i will miss HER!}
So the question is would i make a better beach bum, or city gal?

malorie + kevin

One of my good friends got married a couple weeks ago. Tear. And i took a few pictures of the lovely couple at the temple, and at the reception. Let me just say this. Such a gorgeous reception. It was all vintage. Right up my alley! Everything was so creatively done, i was amazed.


Me, the BEAUTIFUL bride, and trista! oh and some rando guy...
seriously. so gorgeous.
loved her cake!
Look how adorable this is. She had all of her and his relative's wedding pictures, with a little vintage touch!
i had to borrow their rings to take this photo on this vintage typewriter. loves.

Congrats Mal! I am so excited for you! You are going to make the best wife!! Love you!

Little miss GORGEOUS Arial is going to compete in hopes of coming the next miss Utah. I'd say she has no fear. She'll win for sure! I mean just look at these pictures, she has the perfect features for peagents. So this is a funny story, her mom found me via facebook and wanted me to do some portraits of her daughter, little did i know she is lil sis' dance teacher! Oh and also on this shoot we found out we live just two neighborhoods away. Oh how this world is so small. Well i can't post all of these pictures, because they are using some for the peagent. BUT i can post my favorites. HOORAY.

ok hi, i think this is my favorite!





another favorite!!

ok so maybe i just love all of these! They are all my favorite!!



Thanks Arial! I had so much fun! And good luck! We are rooting for you!!
