Oh my heck, seriously could fall at Fernwood Recreational Park be anymore beautiful? I think not. The only thing better than the leaves is little Oli and his adorable smile. This was one of the last shoots before I went on maternity leave and this dude was such a great little happy boy. A few days later I had another shoot with a family and they had a little girl about Oli’s age. I am pretty sure they should get married and have the happiest smiliest babies ever. Brianna SIddoway Photography-Fernwood Recreational Park- Layton Utah photographer

Look at those lashes, I mean come on! How stinking cute! Anyways, back to this cute family. We met the Friz family a few years ago when Dan and my husband started working together. They are such a great family and have become such good friends. We were so happy when they told us they were expecting. I had the pleasure of photographing Oli for his newborn pictures. He was so calm and happy the whole time, such a good baby. I knew he was just like his parents.

Lets also not forget Libby, the other kid in the family. We went to dinner at The Friz’s home a few weeks back and my 6 year old fell in love with Libby. Though he kind of has a mind of his own and insisted on renaming her “Olympia.” He wont call her any other name. Along with her parents Libby is maybe he happiest dog ever. I mean look at her. .. smiles from ear to ear. 

Matt and Shannon were married in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. I was so excited to do their wedding photography. We were so worried about the weather that day. In true Utah fashion the forecast said rain and or snow for that weekend. Luckily there was no snow and it was just rain and only during the reception. If I am being honest I know they say rain on your wedding day brings good luck,(read more here) and I tend to agree since it poured on my wedding day and I am about to hit my 12th year of happily ever after. brianna siddoway photography-Oquirrh Mountain Temple Wedding Photography

One thing I think you need to know about these two is that they love to laugh. Not only that but their laughs are infectious. I found myself bent over, camera in hand, laughing with them so many times. These two just bring joy with them wherever they go. 

I think my favorite thing about the reception is how very “them” it was. Matt and Shannon wanted it to be a party, and it was. They had planned outdoor games and a carnival theme for the outdoor space but had to move it all inside because of the weather. The food was decedent, they had several flavors of popcorn, cotton candy, games, fries and fry sauce, funnel cakes and churros. 

Matt’s family are talented pianists. Matt sang Shannon their song and played for her. I dont think there  was a dry eye in the house. It was sucha special moment and I am so thankful I was able to be a part of it.

Hey everyone! I am still just here snuggling my baby for the next month or so but I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to catch you up on the awesome shoots I was able to participate in while at my photography workshop in Ireland this summer. I had a blast being a Trim Ireland Portrait Photographer. I can totally see myself booking travel sessions all over the world now. It would be a blast and I would love to be your vacation photographer. Hit me up for details. Enjoy!

Meet Sam. She is wearing this incredible gown from the ever talented Bentley and Lace by Elizabeth Copeland 

This was one of the 6 shoots styled by the mad geniuses behind the Partyography Workshop series. The hosts of the workshop are Amy of Amy Cloud Photography and Kandis of Wish Photography. Both these ladies are incredible teachers and professionals and it was a joy to learn from them. Both of them have completely different styles. Amy’s is more edgy and Kandis is more whimsy. How could those two mesh you ask? Well they are both hardcore lady bosses and they respect the heck out of each other and their craft.

The workshop took place near Trim Ireland and was 3 and a half days long. We all stayed together in a rockin’ house where we learned, cooked and laughed together. Over the 3 days we took boudoir photos, had 2 wedding/bridal shoots, one engagement shoot, a glamour portrait session and a senior/whimsical shoot. We shot all over Ireland and had a blast doing it. Trim Ireland Portrait Photographer

Hey everyone! I am still just here snuggling my baby for the next month or so but I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to catch you up on the awesome Irish countryside engagement shoot I was able to participate in while at my photography workshop in Ireland this summer. Enjoy!Irish countryside engagement shoot

This stylized Irish countryside engagement shoot was fantastic. Have you ever just met someone and knew you would be best friends? That’s exactly how things were with this couple. Hugo and Suzanne are the bomb.com. I kid you not. They are warm and friendly and were so gracious. It was pouring rain at one point during the shoot. Suzanne’s whole body was shaking and they were still up for anything. We of course let them wait out the rain in the car but none the less, they were willing to shoot in anything. Irish countryside engagement shoot

This particular shoot we met the couple at our place and then traveled the Irish countryside roaming till we found the perfect spots for these engagements. Look at how incredible this country is? Also, how in the world did that boat just end up on the side of this abandoned house? Such a mystery. This stylized Irish countryside engagement shoot was perfect in each location. I loved the Whimsy of the boat, the romance of the bridge and water. The home was more editorial and the countryside screamed IRELAND! this is truly an experience I will never forget.

Have you ever seen a more stunning bride? I love the trend in the bridal industry for a more non traditional bride. More and more I am seeing unique gowns in all different colors and shapes. I personally love this stunning blue skirt from Sweet Caroline. I love the way it moves in the wind and gives this bride more of a voice. A wedding day should tell your story. I am all about forgetting tradition and doing something that invites your guests into your life a little bit more. brianna siddoway photography-non traditional bride

While in Ireland we were able to have the most beautiful floral arrangements from Flowers by Moira. She is a flower wizard.
