I love it when you come to Utah and photograph the Salt Lake Temple. I hope you had a nice calm morning today after that weekend.

Grant said...

You can't even tell how cold it was in these photos--how did you do that? Everyone still looks pretty and so stoked to be taking pictures.

Becky said...

These are beautiful! You are so talented even in the freezing cold... Brr...

I am so sorry I missed seeing you at Grandma's. But my congratulations is coming soon... not too much longer!

you are amazing. It was so great to meet Grant, he is absolutely charming. I hope we can make it down to visit you guys sometime soon. I love all of your photos and your weekend sounded terribly exhausting. Also, tell Grant that his moustache in his profile pic is something to be proud of.
