Most of you know, I built my photography business to shoot weddings all summer long, in Michigan, 10 years ago. After we moved to Utah, I bought an updated digital camera, shied away from the business of photography. One main reason was the unknown of a Temple wedding. I’d never witnessed one and was afraid of being asked to shoot one. One thing I didn’t think about… All weddings, here, aren’t Temple weddings. So, after a bit of a brake in the wedding scene, I was offered a chance to dive back in. I met a wonderful local photographer(a transplant from WA state), Kylee Maughan of Kylee Ann Photography, online. When she posted she was in need of a “second shooter” at an upcoming backyard wedding, I was all in!
We wrapped up our soccer vacation, on Saturday, and my family dropped me off in Mt. Pleasant(3 hours north of Cedar City, half way to a full drive home). I met Kylee in the drive-way and we shot the wedding/reception together. This wedding was the perfect atmosphere to get my photo groove back on. Relaxed, friendly, simple, and in the backyard… not so scary, I can do this. I followed Kylee around and got some shots, which produced nice images to show others(and myself) I am still capable. I want to thank Kylee for allowing me in on this wedding and being extremely helpful and open to photography business tips of the times and area(I drove the two of us home and “worked” the day for trade of picking her brain for 3.5 hours).
Might I add, this beautiful welcoming couple made it pretty easy, as well! High school sweethearts, returning home from USU to tie the knot in their hometown of Mt. Pleasant, Utah. Warm familiar friends and family, paired with beautiful June weather. All around set up to be the
