Yesterday was my nephew, Will's, birthday. He turned 4.
Will had a Diego themed party -- the coolest cartoon for the youngsters. If any of you have kids of your own (or if you're an aunt or uncle) you know all about Diego and Dora. Will has been into Diego ever since last year when he got some new Diego shoes that he claimed made him run really fast.
These kids were hilarious and quite the handful! My favorite game was reindeer, reindeer, elf (aka duck, duck goose) because the kids didn't quite catch the concept of how to play. Moms were on the sidelines coaching them when to run and sit. They had a blast chasing each other!
When Will opened his presents, he was the most gracious boy ever! He would say things like 'I've always wanted.....' and 'This is always my favorite...' and he was so enthusiastic with each gift opening, and even read the cards that came with each present. What a good boy!
Happy Birthday, Will! I love you :)

I am so excited to share Ashley and Chase's wedding pictures!
They were married on Saturday December 15th...a very cold day...but beautiful, nonetheless. I can't believe that Ashley lasted as long as she did outside, especially because her toes were exposed and she already has a tendency to get cold easily (she did have awesome mustard colored leggings on, which looked fabulous). She stuck it out incredibly well and we got some amazing shots.
At their dinner at Log Haven, they gathered with close friends and family under a large white tent that had lights shining through -- it was spectacular! I especially love the photographs of the two of them dancing and interacting together.
I have to give a big shout out and thanks to my friend Angela, who came to assist me and shoot candids. I seriously could not have done it without her -- she carried some of my equipment, helped me set things up at the reception, and was always one step ahead of the game. Thank you so much, Angela!
Angela took this photo and I love how she used Ashley's bouquet to add a new element. It's awesome to see the different perspectives we each got.

Last night, I learned how hard-core Nicole really is! We took Nicole and Rich's bridals & groomals up in Peoa, UT. Every time I have driven up in that area, I have always thought how awesome it would be do to a photo shoot by the old red barn...and I finally got my chance!
Even though the temperatures were below 20 degrees, these guys didn't complain at all. By the end, they couldn't move their mouths, their whole bodies were stiff, and their fingers felt like they could fall off. I am so glad we went up there, despite the freezing weather because these turned out amazing. Which ones are your favorites?
