Oh my my my. I adore these two people. I was incredibly excited when Nicole and Ammon invited me to Utah to shoot an in-home couples session for their wedding anniversary. My husband tagged along and we decided to spend our two downs in Vegas and drive to Utah to shoot these two. I decided I want a “vintage” Vegas experience and picked a landmark hotel, The Paris. Without going in to too much detail, I will just say I will NOT be doing that ever again. I didn’t even gamble and my husband got into it with a dude in an Olaf costume, so needless to say, The Strip was a big fat bust. Thank goodness I had something to do that I actually like. Cody (husband) and I drove down to St. George, Utah and were amazed at the contrast of landscape in the Arizona desert as compared to what we are used to in the PNW. I’ve never seen bare mountains in my entire life and decided to dub Arizona “Naked Montana” because I imagine thats what Montana looks like if you strip it down. Such a beautiful place and I hope to spend more time shooting in the desert in the future.
At any rate, Cody is lurking in the edges of all these photos. Heres an outtake of him channeling his inner Ragnar Lothbrook (my favorite TV character currently since Sons of Anarchy went away..insert cry face emoji).
Nicole and Ammon were so cute, so in love, and so down for whatever. My favorite kind of people to work with. Here’s their story.
(PS Their love video got 35,000 views on Instagram (click to check out ))
Thanks you two <3
