Michael + Julia | Utah Wedding Photographer

They met at a fireside. Michael tried to talk to Julia in fake accent. She wasn’t impressed. Though there must have been some interest sparked, because the next thing they knew they were dating, then engaged, and now married!

I adored this wedding, probably because I adore Michael and Julia. They are both super sweet, fun, and well, just awesome. It was also great because Michael is the brother/in-law of our fabulous friends/neighbors Aaron and Tandy. Which essentially means we got to spend a day hanging out with them (which was, of course, fabulous). Okay, is that enough adjectives for you? Let’s get on with the pictures!


Great candid shot by Jake




Isn’t Julia’s dress fabulous? I think it’s one of my favorites for sure. Julia had this dress made by Shauna Shauers. Pure talent is all I have to say. If you’d like Shauna’s contact info (I have a phone number and email for her), just shoot me an email!





Love this shot



Isn’t this candid by Jake dreamy? I love it




One of my very favorite shots. It’s not the most technically correct, but I love it for the emotion. An adorable little girl had just handed Julia this little flower and Michael decided to stick it behind her ear. It makes me happy to look at it.


Again, LOVE this dress



Fantastic cake!


This wasn’t planned, but I like how you can see Michael in the mirror over her shoulder



Their little flower girls were all so cute!


Michael and Julie love rockclimbing and did it quite a bit while dating. Jake and I decided to incorporate some rock into these shots in honor of that.


We were trying to make the rings look like they were rock climbing. haha. Didn’t quite work, but I like it anyway.

I love the glow of the lights after the sun went down


And off they go! I love how Jake caught the city lights glowing behind them


Okay, now there are a TON more photos (including luncheon shots) that I wanted to post here, but didn’t because of time and space. BUT, you know that I put them all in a slideshow:
