About a year ago, I had the lovely opportunity to photograph an incredible tribute to Melissa Blackburn Designs. All these stunning dresses were inspired by her brides and handcrafted by Melissa herself. The basis of this inspiration was an exciting Marie Antoinette vein. Exquisite floral from Tinge Floral and divine sweets from The Sweet Tooth Fairy… a perfect backdrop for these incredible creations. This photographic collaboration is currently gracing the pages of the lovely Utah Valley Bride Magazine (Mikki’s version) available on newsstands today. Pick yourself up a copy, there is lots of goodness there.

Utah Bride & Groom Magazine Cover Spring/Fall

A few months ago I had an opportunity to collaborate on a project for Kinfolk magazine… my favorite new publication. While working on that other project, Nate, the editor came to me wondering if I had any images of my wee Liv eating soup to coincide with an essay that was picture-less. I obliged, whipped up a pot of soup and plopped Liv down in front of a bowl. The short and sweet of how Liv’s tired face and full belly ended up in the pages of a grand publication. Thank you Kinfolk, honored to play a small part in your wonderful work. Looking forward to following publications and to see where the Kinfolk journey goes. You can go here to purchase a hard copy or read it on your iPad. Hope you love my contributor photo… it was taken by Liv herself.

One day late last Spring, while shooting a wedding in Seattle I received an email from Val Rasmussen, the newly appointed editor of Utah Bride and Groom Magazine. She graciously asked if I would be interested in conceiving and shooting the fashion editorial for the next publication of the magazine… um, well… perhaps? Needless to say, I was ecstatic to be thought of for this project. Within few weeks, I found myself at the Grand America, camera in hand and lots of pretty pictures in my head. Here are a few of my favorites… you can see more in the new edition of Utah Bride and Groom Magazine on newsstands now.utah editorial photographersalt lake city wedding photographergrand america wedding photographerutah wedding photographerprovo wedding photographergrand america weddingsbest utah wedding photographyutah wedding photographergrand america wedding photographysalt lake city weddingsprovo wedding photographylogan utah wedding photographygrand america hotel photographysalt lake city wedding photoutah bride groom wedding photographyutah wedding photographerhotel wedding photography utahA huge thank you to all who participated in bringing this concept to light and for the magazine for providing the opportunity… Val & Heidi, thanks for the faith!
