Salt Lake City Wedding: Andrea + Rocky

Earlier this month I got a message asking if I was available to shoot a wedding… THE NEXT DAY. Andrea didn’t intend on having a photographer because they had planned a very small and simple civil ceremony at the city hall. But one of her close friends (who also happens to be named Andrea), decided she needed a photographer and contacted me as a wedding present. Ummm, awesome present, if you ask me! Well done, Andrea ;)

So, with just a handful of their family and closest friends, Andrea and Rocky vowed to cherish each other every day for the rest of their lives, and fortunately, I was able to document it. Enjoy a few of my favorites from this lovely couple’s day!!

Rocky and Andrea had chosen not to see each other at all that morning until they arrived at the city hall, and when I found that out, I recommended a first look before they headed inside. They were totally game for it, and I’m SO glad they were :)

This right here? This is why I love first looks. 

After a very quick first look we headed inside!

Andrea’s family couldn’t make it, so they were on skype the whole time watching!

They were SO adorably happy.

Rice exit :)

Then later that evening we headed to Memory Grove for a few more photos.

Love this.

Let’s be honest, you guys are one smoking couple!

I loved the way Rocky smiled at Andrea. He was so happy he could hardly contain it :)

SO cute.

These next ones make me happy.

Congratulations again Andrea and Rocky!! You guys are beautiful together. And another thanks to the other Andrea for getting in touch with me and giving them such a sweet gift!! I’m so glad it worked out :)

Happy Wednesday!
