It's not easy to brave the canyon's during a Utah winter, but these two make it look easy! The chill in the air resulted in lots of nuzzles and snuggles and set the perfect tone for a romantic sitting! The camera loves Alyssa and I believe she was made to be a winter princess- just look at those eyes! These two have a fun story! They went to the same high school, and then the same college without really knowing each other, but fate would get the last word when they finally connected officially through friends! Such a sweet reminder that we are destined to find our soul mate!


We headed up American Fork Canyon and climbed until we left the infamous Utah January smog behind. It wasn't long before we found the sun! But don't let that fool you - it was chilly! These two did amazing and without one complaint we breezed through a really fun session! I loved the way the warmth of the sun peaked through the snow dusted trees at our first stop, then we climbed even higher to find sweeping mountains full of evergreens! It wasn't snowing, but the snow seemed to dance around us in the breeze and the chill. 


Once I had sufficiently frozen their toes, we called it good! We were so excited seeing the images on camera and the final images did not dissappoint! You can tell without hesitation how giddy these two are around each other. They love to smile and laugh and their is a total ease about their embrace. Alyssa is a dream to shoot! She is the whole package, and Makade is so handsome and willing to do whatever we needed, including stand in a foot of snow without looking cold! They were a joy to shoot and we are all so excited to shoot her bridal session very soon!


ENJOY!
