Derek and Lexie have become one of my favorite couples to ever work with. They booked me the week of their wedding and I was so excited. I love love love shooting at the Salt Lake Temple so when they told me that’s where they were getting married, I couldn’t even contain my excitement! It was a BEAUTIFUL October day, even if it was a bit windy. Everything turned out beautiful. Their love, their marriage, their friends and family. Their portraits… It just couldn’t have looked or gone any better. We laughed the entire time we took pictures and I’m really glad we were able to have fun together.
The following week they had their reception in Burley, Idaho. I’ve never been there but luckily I was able to find it pretty easily. I’m really bad with directions so I’m just going to say I got lucky! So many wonderful people came to celebrate the newlyweds and it was so good to see them again. We danced the night away to a lot of different songs and laughed all night. Their cake smash was probably the best I’d ever seen. They had a small (top-tier type size) cake made for just the two of them to smash in each others faces. It was hilarious. Lexie couldn’t get her piece cut off quick enough and in the photos, it looks like he’s enjoying it a lot! Haha, it was so great.
I’m always a little bit sad when the night ends and it’s time to go home. I’ve really enjoyed the relationships I’ve had over the past couple of years with my clients. Hopefully Lexie and Derek will need some couple/family portraits in the near future. Thanks again for having me Lexie and Derek, it was an honor.
