Reid Temple Wedding & Bridals

On both their Bridal Session day and the Wedding Day, it was freezing cold with crazy sporadic weather. But that didn’t stop Alyssa and Nathan from enjoying their special moments. Nathan was so sweet, taking time to make sure Alyssa got warmed up in-between shots, and helping her around with her dress and shoes. It’s so wonderful to see two people in love, and there is nothing like a man smitten with his lady.

On the bridal session day, Alyssa brought along both her blessing and baptism dresses which was such a sweet, special idea. Now she will have a photograph of all three of her special white dresses to cherish forever.

On their wedding day, Nathan and Alyssa were surrounded by lots of family and good friends who came to the Las Vegas Temple to celebrate their marriage for Time and All Eternity. They had a really fun group of friends in their bridal party, and there were lots of laughs and love all around.

Many family members pitched in to help make everything perfect. Alyssa’s uncle hand- carved a box with the Las Vegas Temple on it for their rings, which was super special to Alyssa. Alyssa’s grandma helped alter her wedding dress, and many others helped with decor, flowers, and the luncheon. It was so wonderful to see everyone unified to help make the day extra special. They are truly blessed to have such wonderful family on all sides.

Nathan and Alyssa, I’m so grateful I got to be a part of your special day. I wish for you a strong, beautiful marriage, and may you always love and appreciate one another.

Jayden & Charlie – Fall Engagement Session

These two… Ah! So in love! I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in April! I got to photograph Jayden a few years ago for her Senior photos and now she is engaged, and I’m so excited to not only photograph her again, but to meet her sweetheart Charlie! They are seriously the cutest! There is nothing like witnessing two people in love. The way they look at each other, the way they make each other smile and laugh, and the way they are so thoughtful and considerate of each other. It’s the best.

Jayden and Charles, I can’t wait to see you two in April!
Love, Rey

Lee Family – Christmas Card Mini Session

I just LOVE this adorable little family! I’ve had the pleasure of doing their portraits for a few years now, and these kids are among my faves to photograph. They’re not only adorable, but SO GOOD in front of the camera. I could photograph them all day long! Here’s a few shots from their Christmas Card Mini Session this year. Enjoy!

Lexi – Winter Bridal Session

Lexi was one of my senior models last year, and I can tell you that she is such a sweet, kind soul, and so much fun to be around. She was off to college and had some plans set in motion, but little did she know she would meet her forever love along the way! Now they are making new plans and adventures together, and I’m so happy that she gets to start her adult life with her best friend by her side.

When Lexie got engaged her momma excitedly called me to tell me the news and book me for their wedding. Sadly, their wedding was a week before Christmas and I already had a prior engagement that day, so I didn’t get to be their wedding photographer, but I did get to photograph Lexi’s beautiful winter bridal session! (Check out Makendie photography for their lovely wedding day photos!) These were SO much fun to create! Lexie was game for all my ideas, and I even inspired her to swap out her veil for a flower crown on her wedding day, which suited her so beautifully!

Lexi looked so stunning, I teared up when she got out of the car! And I just think she is the loveliest winter bride I’ve yet to see!

Lexi, I’m so grateful I got to be a little part of your special day! I wish you and your new Mr an eternity of happiness!

xoxo Rey

Ashley & Mackae – Wedding Day

This beautiful bride was one of my senior models a few years ago, and now she is MARRIED! I love all my seniors so much, so when I get asked to be a part of such special occasions, I’m not only honored, but totally filled with emotion. It’s not uncommon to see me crying as I’m snapping away behind the camera!

Ashley and Mackae were high school sweethearts, and the first time she introduced him to me was during her senior session. He’s always been super sweet on Ashley, and I remember thinking back then, that I hope she keeps a hold of him because I could tell he would be a great life partner. Over the years I’ve seen them grow closer, and learn to take care of each other. It’s such a beautiful thing to witness, love coming into full bloom. I got to witness that sweetness for the first time when I photographed their Engagement Session, and I cried right along Ashley’s momma the day we photographed their first look and Bridal Session too.

Ashley and Mackae chose to host their wedding at a special place- Ashley’s grandparent’s little orchard. Ashley lost both her grandparents this past year, and it was a wonderful way to keep their memory alive on her wedding day. Though it was the very end of November, her grandma’s roses were in full bloom, and producing a beautiful peachy pink that seemed to be meant just for the occasion.

Ashley also lost her father several years ago, and so she asked her uncle to do the honor of walking her down the aisle. It was quite a special moment, and there many tears flowing as he gave her away to Mackae.

Mackae and Ashley treated their guests to a delicious Mexican dinner catered by members of Mackae’s family. Ashley’s Aunt made their cake which was full of such beautiful detail, and guests enjoyed Jenn Totten’s famous cakeballs for dessert. After dinner came the shoe game, and if you don’t know what that is, you should look it up! It’s so much fun!

The first dance looked magical under all the little twinkle lights that illuminated the orchard, and it was tender moments all over again when Mackae danced with his mom, and Ashley with her Uncle. for the mother/son and father/daughter dances. Soon after, everyone was having a blast dancing to all the great music DJ Tayna was playing, and it was so much fun capturing everyone having such a great time!

This wedding was such a labor of love for Ashley and Mackae, I know just how much work and planning went into it, and it turned out so lovely! I’m so excited for these two to start their lives together. They make such a great team already, and I can’t wait to see all the awesome things they do together as husband and wife!

Ashley and Mackae, thank you SO much for making me a part of your day. From the engagments up to the wedding day, I feel so grateful to be a part of it all! I love you two!

xoxo Rey
