Ok, where to begin.. where to begin. I’ll start here- I met Katie and her very sweet parents back in 2017 when they were still in the planning stages for what would be her INCREDIBLE mountaintop wedding in September of 2018. I remember sitting there and chatting with them and thinking.. I totally hit the client jackpot. Lucky for me, I have lots of jackpot clients BUT.. Not always are their parents and families as amazing as they are. With Katie though, her parents were so sweet, genuine and so easy to talk to!
Katie and Chris had their engagements taken on the east coast and I got to photograph Katie’s bridals (without Chris) in late summer. Which means I didn’t get to meet Chris until the actual wedding day. When I did, I could not help but smile because Katie and Chris were so, so, SO perfect together. Chris is/was unlike many.. (dare I say “most”?) grooms. He was 1,000% willing to spend all the time we needed to get amazing photos. Maybe that sounds like I’m totally dissing my other grooms, trust me I am not!! I’m sure most of you girls reading this though understand when I say.. guys aren’t typically the ones who want to spend loads of time taking photos. They generally want to get photos done quickly and return to the guests to drink or party the night away.
Now for Katie! This sweet girl was BEYOND amazing to work with. For one, she photographs beautifully and is incredibly comfortable in front of the camera. On top of that, she is one of the kindest, down to earth, and patient girls ever (trust me, we were running late to the tram on her wedding day and she stayed cool as a cucumber!). She also wore a gown from Kleinfeld Bridal. Being in Utah, I’ve only had a small handful of girls get their dresses from Kleinfeld, so it’s a big deal when I find out!
Harvest Moon Events is truly one of the most incredible planners I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Kasey is beyond talented! The team at Snowbird is also TOP NOTCH. They are always rockstars and pull all the strings to make every wedding there a dream wedding. Ok, we definitely need to get to some photos, but here’s a quick vendor list of all the fabulous peeps involved (missing a couple of people, unfortunately I didn’t catch their names!).
