Hi all! I will be accepting a very limited amount of clients for fall family sessions. These sessions are PERFECT if you’re hoping to send out holiday cards by the beginning of December. Here are all the details.
In a day and age when iPhone camera performance is only improving and most households have access to some sort of digital camera, you may be wondering if you should hire a professional at all for your wedding day. I’m here to tell you that, unless you’re financially unable to, yes…yes, you really should. Here’s why.
Meet Liv. She’s a tattooed mother bird, a yoga instructor, and a sweet friend of mine. I met her last year during my time spent at Utah State and was somewhat obsessed with the beauty/authenticity she emanated whilst navigating motherhood, higher education, and her practice. I still am, if you can’t tell.
Just like any other girl who has a Pinterest account, Banff National Park has been a dream destination of mine for years. In true Maya fashion, I spontaneously bought tickets for arguably the most random time of year to visit - November. Not snowy enough for winter activities, but not warm enough for summer activities. Accompanying me, as always, was my boyfriend Jeffrey. This was my - FIRST TIME - outside the country. CANADA. Such a long ways from home. A real culture shock. ;)
It’s always been a bucket list item of mine to shoot a wedding in a national park. Lo, and behold, Schuyler and Glenn booked me several months ago for a wedding in Zion National Park. Obiously Jeff and I weren’t going to let this opportunity fly by without making an event of it.
The wedding itself was a bit more like an elopement with a small audience - short and sweet. Schuyler and Glenn were as laid back as a couple gets. Schuyler was willing to hitch up her dress and wade in the river until the hem of it was covered with sand. I can’t think of many things more beautiful than a barefoot bride in a sandy-hemmed wedding dress. Don’t you agree?
