Date Night with Rocky Mountain Bride

Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine released their 2019 Utah issue today and it’s dreamy! Our feature is a collaboration with the Blended Table to show you how to have an intimate anniversary or date night at home vs. hitting the town. My favorite part? These recipes the Blended Table crafted are easy for all to recreate together at home. My love and I prefer staying in and cooking together vs. going out and we liven up our meals with locally sourced produce and splurge on tasty cheese. Most importantly though when we cook together at home we are connecting and learning new skills that contribute to a healthy lifestyle. This editorial goes right along with something we would enjoy ourselves which is why I enjoy it so much.

Big thank you to the ladies at Rocky Mountain Bride and the Blended Table team! Our engaged couple Madison and Chris were also fantastic for bringing all of their loving vibes. They were naturals.

Rocky Mountain Bride Date Night Editorial

Instead of a lively outing on the town, opt for a romantic night for two in the comfort of your own kitchen. Splurge on the finest ingredients, light the candles and turn up your favorite playlist, darling. The Blended Table will take care of the rest! From curated cocktails to crush worthy recipes, staying in just got a little sweeter.

Jenny and Dave’s couple portraits in Albion Basincouple

I first met Jenny years ago when she kindly modeled for a bridal inspiration shoot I put together. She was wonderful to photograph then so you can imagine how happy I was for the chance to connect with her and her husband Dave years later. They’ve been married a few years now and were looking for a natural documentation of themselves. Nothing too over the top or dramatic. Just simple portraiture of them in the present. They brought a very natural and calm vibe to the evening and I completely forgot this was their first time being professionally photographed together. These portraits have easily become some of my favorite this year.

Whether you’re engaged, growing your family, have a major life event or not, it’s always a great time for portraits with the one you love.

Torrie and Nick’s Maternity Portraits at Sutro Baths, San Franciscofamily

Last month we traveled to San Francisco, California to photograph our dear friends Torrie and Nick just a few weeks before their newborn baby arrives. I was only able to spend an evening with them and I came away from it feeling deeply inspired by the love they already have for their daughter. Pretty similarly to how their wedding day began, the first part of our time together was spent with them cuddled up together but this time in their Oakland home. They let me in on their thoughts of becoming new parents and spoke of their hopes and dreams of the kind of people they want to be for their daughter. They were excited and hopeful and these feelings were strongly felt by being near them.

After spending some time in their home they dressed up and ventured to the beach surrounding Sutro Baths in San Francisco, California. The weather was beautiful and the beach was less crowded than I’ve ever been able to experience it. Lucky for me they were up for crossing rocks to venture onto the beach and hike up through the trees to catch the prettiest evening light that shined off the water and through them.

Torrie and Nick – I truly can’t thank you enough for all the opportunities you’ve given Todd and I to be part of your lives. Being able to photograph your wedding celebration all the way to this moment of your little girl coming into this world has been an honor. We’ve learned to adore you both and the way you’ve inspired us with your love for each other and your family. Thank you so much my friends.

xo, elisha.
