Red rocks in Utah

Posted on: Wednesday, April 15, 2015

After a year of talking about going to visit the canyons in Utah, we finally made it.  It was all amazing sites, vast and vibrant.  My pictures cannot capture the depth of it all.  I couldn’t think of better people to experience it with than my travel partner in crime, and for the first time meeting her fiancee.  I was honored to photograph their engagement session and I’m excited for their upcoming wedding next year!

We flew into SLC airport, visited around Salt Lake City.  Drove 4 hours to Bryce Canyon, 1 hour to Zion National Park and 5 hours to Canyon land, and 4 hours back to SCL airport to fly back home.

Tips:  Allow more time for Zion.  Stick to the markers at Arches national park.  We followed some random stranger that didn’t speak any English and got us to the wrong path, the spot nearly killed us because it didn’t look steep from far away, but unclose it was scary to cross over!  I can’t describe it besides that it was scary!

Beautiful things in life inspires me. It’s been awhile since I painted anything. I bought new watercolor paint, but my days are filled with meetings, running my business and balancing my personal life. Soon I will have a workshop to answer all business questions and maybe help others out with their business.
I’m no expert at camera equipments and techniques, so I’m hoping not a lot of people will ask me about that. I will answer what I can. I use the most basic camera and lenses to get what I need (Canon Mark 3, 50mm, 85mm, 100mm, 24-105mm, 70-200mm). I tried out different lenses that people recommended, but always stuck to the same ones that I really like, I think that I use the 50mm the most and 70-200mm at weddings. I use Photoshop & Lightroom to edit my photos. For fun things, I shoot with a Contax 645 with 80mm lens. I really adore the soft look that film brings, however, right now I cannot absorb the cost if I shoot with the film SLR for clients.

Speaking of inspiration, I was in Santa Barbara last weekend and the scenery was definitely beautiful. It was my first visit there. I was grateful for the incredible hosts Eve and Rich, they are angels on earth.  Some random pictures from my phone :)
