Canyon Creek

I was asked a few days ago to take a few photos of Matt Rood, Greg Slofstra, and Chad Davidson from Canyon Creek Estates for a newspaper article that is coming soon. I had actually not even been aware that it existed before that. It is really quite a beautiful area! You should all really take a drive out there if you haven't already, it's right near desert blume golf course. It was under pretty serious construction when I was there, and just after a lot of rain, so LOTS of mud. Anyway, here are the 3 guys, and a link to their site if you are interested in getting more information about Canyon Creek Estates!

Beautiful Bride!

I am going to post Cassie & Kyle's pics in a few installments over the next week or so. Here are some of the bride,her mom and her best girls getting ready for the wedding last Saturday.

This wedding was particularly special to me because even though I had never met Cassie before her and Kyle's engagement photos, I used to work with her mom at Perkins and I really felt like we were already friends.

Here are a few of my favorites from that morning;

The gorgeous princess Sarah, before we became friends...

Mom helping with the necklace...

This one is my FAVORITE! There were some really long laces on the back of the dress and we were just discussing what to do with them... Ronda (i'm pretty sure no h, right?) thought that my suggestion was pretty funny.

Cassie, you look so beautiful!

The rings...

Getting ready to leave...

I really wish that I had a camera that takes video as well, I am not sure that the ladies knew I was taking pictures from afar, but they were all singing... it was one of my favorite moments.

Ceremony pics. coming in a few days... check back - and enter the contest below!

Can I just say WOW! I really love SO MANY of these photos, how do I choose what to post? JoDana and I used to work together at The Home Depot designing kitchens. I had such a great time, thank you so much JoDana - hope you weren't too traumatized by the birds...

Here are just a few of my favorites.

I really loved the light in this one, it looks so warm.

Gorgeous eyes...

When JoDana climbed up onto the train, about 50 pigeons came flying out over her head and out every window, it was bit scary.

Then we went to Echo Dale, the water was surprisingly warm.

Thank you so much again, JoDana, i'll get your disk to you with ALL of the fantastic shots next week. I still have quite a bit of editing to do. Hope you had as much fun as I did!
