Classic Salt Lake City Temple Wedding | Dawn & Isaac

Spring Wedding at Salt Lake City Temple by Elisha Braithwaite Photography

Dawn and Isaac’s wedding was one I couldn’t wait to begin and once it did, I honestly didn’t want it to end. They had a full day of celebrating with an early morning first look together at the Grand America Hotel just before heading to the Salt Lake City Lds Temple where they were married. After spending some time creating some of my favorite fine art portraits from a wedding, we made our way back to Grand America to witness quite a production of an evening. They began with a cultural Korean Tea Ceremony followed by a reception/dinner which was full of surprise musical performances by both the bride and groom to one another and a wild night of dancing. Visually and emotionally their day was amazing. I couldn’t quit smiling as I edited through their images and still wish to relive the day. Dawn and Isaac – I truly can’t thank you enough for being fully honest and trusting when it came to how I documented your day. Thank you for trusting my process and vision. Most importantly though, thank you for sharing your friendship and love.

Lighthouse Wedding overlooking the Seven Sisters Cliffs | Haley & Keaton

Orange Sunrise at Beachy Head by Elisha Braithwaite Photography

My close friends Haley and Keaton celebrated their wedding at the Belle Tout Lighthouse, a lovely bed and breakfast on the southern coast of England. It overlooks the chalky Seven Sisters cliffs and sits close enough to the cliff side that it will soon erode away and need to be relocated. But for now, these two and a handful of loved ones were able to celebrate in a country that they hold close to their hearts.

Haley and Keaton found the Belle Tout Lighthouse by chance while searching for the best bed and breakfasts in the world. They have a deep love for England so the lighthouse just made sense. It had just enough rooms to comfortably house them, their rad parents, myself and a couple of influential friends. To say I’m honored to have been invited along is a total understatement. I’m incredibly grateful for the chance to celebrate my friends marriage and to have vacationed so intimately with them for the entire week. Most importantly though I’m just thrilled to see them married in a way that felt right for them.

The wedding itself was gorgeous. Gusty winds blew her friends gown as she radiantly stood before us all and married them. They recited their own vows and loved ones warmed their rings, wishing them luck and sending prayers their way. They ended the evening over fantastic food and drinks at a local pub before heading back to the lighthouse where we stayed up well past 2am telling stories about them.

Hey friends – you were an absolute dream. I can’t thank you enough for bringing me along to a gorgeous country and for allowing me to be among those who witnessed your marriage. Okay enough of me. Scroll on down and see all the love.

Karen and Ed’s Engagement in Albion Basinengagements

The evening I joined Karen and Ed for engagements around Alta was simply breathtaking. We barely caught the end of wildflower season so crowds were mostly gone and the mountainside was ours. Being able to roam the landscape more freely made the whole experience feel even more special for these two than it already was. They were together alone without distractions and it couldn’t have been a better night.

We began near a stream where we found a patch of surviving wildflowers and lush greens which seemed to thrive in the shadows. Karen and Ed’s version of casual was a neutral colored button up shirt and floral dress which caught the light and wind in all the right ways which I loved. After a few calm moments here we journeyed up the mountainside where they changed in to their formal outfit for big open views of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Wind blew smoke from neighboring fires into the canyon which gave us the neatest haze till the sun set over the mountains. We photographed for a little over a couple hours yet I still wish we had more time because these two were incredibly romantic and wonderful to be around.

Karen and Ed – I can’t thank you enough for coming up here and trekking through the mountainside with me! You guys are such a kind and beautiful couple and I couldn’t be happier for you.

Ellen and Quinn’s first look in Guardsman Passfirst look

Being around Ellen and Quinn feels like pure happiness. For the first time ever I had the hardest time taking a few serious portraits because they are just so happy and playful together. And you know what? That’s exactly how their first look should be. I genuinely enjoyed every single moment of being around these two. Everything from their teary eyed first look to laughing and tossing the other over their shoulders and spinning around just felt like pure love. Scroll down and check out their smiley selves in one of my favorite corners of the mountains.

Rachel and James’ Boho Bridals at Great Salt Lake, Utahbridals

A few weeks before their Moab wedding I met Rachel and James at the Great Salt Lake for pre-wedding portraits. She had two separate gowns for her wedding day, both with completely different styles. She went for a gorgeous boho look for these with her reception gown and it was absolutely gorgeous. It was a nice chance for some variety and to let her hair down and have a completely different look from the wedding. I’ll always love when couples opt to take portraits before or after the wedding day.
