Trolley Square Wedding

Trolley Square weddings are always high on my list of my favorite wedding venues in Salt Lake City Utah.  I am a Utah based wedding Photographer.  I would love to photograph your wedding. 

This was first time photographing a Native American wedding.  The Falls reception center is the perfect location for any winter wedding.  Trolley square is perfect for mixing the old with the new. So many cool things happened during this ceremony! It was fun to see the couple draw from their  Cherokee heritage.  You could see this in their theme of the stars to using Cherokee blessings and rituals during the ceremony.  I want to name the things that happened, but feel so uneducated to actually know.  I was invited by Lauren Perry to help her take on the awesome responsibility of shooting this wedding.  Everything was so polished from the amazing star ceiling to the elaborate flower centerpieces.  Winter at Trolley Square is perfect quit location in the heart of downtown salt lake city.  The wedding details in this Trolley Square wedding where spot on.  I loved the wedding cake and the Brides fun wedding dress.  Utah brides are known for their style.  I love photographing trendy boho Utah weddings.  Also Trolley Square would be a great place to have your Utah wedding.

Ahem, blogging world–are you still out there?  I know I’ve been missing in action.  That’s because photographing weddings and being a mom is hard work!  I only get a chance to breath around–what month is it?–December?  Yes, just a short breath before the new wedding season begins.  That doesn’t mean that I haven’t loved my business or my clients for the last year.  I have adored them!  And it’s about time I show them that love on my blog!

Utah State Capitol Bridals

Utah state Capitol Bridals are always fun and so beautiful.  I love it when newly engaged Utah couples ask to have timeless wedding photography taken here.

Sometimes I joke and say that I do wedding photography primary as an escape from motherhood.  To occasionally get a thank you or your welcome.  To create something that actually stays done.  To do something you can perfect and move on from there.  Motherhood is a work in progress to say the least, but I love it. I also love wedding photography.  I love getting to know new couples.  To experience the freshness of their love, pure, raw and genuine.  Capturing each kiss, smile and giggle.

Utah wedding photographer photographs a cute young whimsical couple at the Utah state capitol building.  The Utah state  capitol is an elegant and timeless location for utah wedding.  The classical elegance of the building added to the romance of the couple.  Working together we where able to capture smiles and kisses.  I love being a Utah Wedding photographer.  If you are getting married in Utah I would love to be your wedding photographer.  Wedding photography shouldn’t be left to chance, get a professional wedding photographer that you trust.  I think that Utah Weddings are always so beautiful.  I would love to be your Utah Wedding Photography.

Chelsea and Dylan's WeddingWadley Farms WeddingUtah Wedding Photographer

Behind the Scenes:
Have I mentioned I’m a Netflix junkie?  I get to watch while I edit and I also sometimes watch to deal with pre wedding shoot jitters before this Wadley Farms wedding.  I think my family is about to stage an intervention and send me to a 12-step recovery program.  So I watched some netflix (dance academy is my lame girl weakness right now, what’s yours?) and drank some diet coke to amp myself for this wedding.  I’ve wondered if brides have a process they do to prepare for the wedding.  Thoughts?
Wadley Farms is nestled in the valley at the base of Timpanogous Mountain.  A scenic wedding venue with history.  This couple was married in the old rail road building.  Romantic and quaint and just perfect for their small ceremony wedding.
Cute Couple’s Story:
Dylan and I first met in late August, 2014. My friend and I walked into our first class of the first day of school (heat transfer) and the room was pretty packed but a set of seats  which were next to Dylan were open. We looked at each other, said “oooo”, laughed and went to sit next to Dylan because he was cute. Immediately after sitting next to him I said, “Hi, I’m Chelsea and this is Cassandra and we know everyone but we don’t know you”. He introduced himself and I began asking about him. He later told me (on our first date) that he felt like I was picking on the new kid, and I was annoying and avoided me after that encounter. He later saw me walk into class late, thought “Oh shoot, what did I do” and then started to pursue me. We eventually went on some dates and began seriously dating after a few months. We eventually graduated and started working as nuclear engineers in Washington state. It’s one of my favorite stories because it is very much like Dylan to hate talking to strangers but we made it past that to where we are today.

Reed Family photosWinter Family PhotosUtah family photographer

I love it when families want to take wither family photos for their Christmas cards.  Christmas card photos are so fun because you can take them in any kind of weather.  This was a full out winter blizzard!  Also I like how stress free (ha ha easy for me to say. ) winter family photos can be.  I say this because if your child messes up their hair you can just put a hat on their head.  Spills on an outfit, put a vest on that child!  But seriously, I’ve had both those cases happen to my family.  Also who doesn’t want to go out and play in the snow?  So fun, I highly recommend taking family photos in the winter.

what to wear for family photos.  Winter family photos are so easy to know what to wear too, just put on cute coats and jackets you already own. Vests are a great item to wear in family photos.  A cute dress coat for the girls, even plaid or flannel make really cute family Christmas card photos.  IF you are looking for something cute to do for your family Christmas cards, check out this families Christmas card photos.  I love winter family photos.  We drove up the canon in Utah to find snow tuffed pine trees.  pops of red on the families outfits make it so cute and fun in the photos. add a cute sled for some fun in the snow while you take your photos.

Utah wedding photographerVietnamese Wedding in UtahVietnamese wedding and Tuscany Gardens

I love learning about the culture while photographing this Vietnamese wedding. Forgive me if I get anything wrong, I was only an onlooker.  The groom prepares to meet his bride in a home close to hers.  The prepare gifts for the brides family and ancestors.  His family makes a procession line and carries the gifts to the brides house. There they gave all the gifts for the wedding to the bridesmaids.  The then go in and serve tea to their parents. The parents give gifts the children.  It was really beautiful and fun to be a part of it.

Fun Story about the couple:

Jordan and I met in math class, of all places!  We were both sophomores at UC Berkeley, he was an Engineering Physics major and I was in Astrophysics, so our paths never crossed.  It was kind of a fluke that I was taking this class in the first place, as I hadn’t fulfilled all of the pre-requirements, but I decided to do it anyways.  Even though it was a small class, we never really talked to each other.  Towards the end of the semester, he walked in with a shirt with a picture of Shakespeare on it, with the phrase ‘Prose before Hos’.  I joked that I was offended, as my last name is Ho, and that it was not okay for prose to come before me.  He was taken aback, but later that day went home and sent me a message.  That shirt provided the spark that ignited our ten year strong relationship.  While the original shirt is in tatters, it lives on in the form of two replicas that I have made to keep him happy 🙂
