finding a photographer was definitely the hardest part. being in utah, the "wedding state", there are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many photographers! and no offense, but i feel like a lot of people just pick up a Canon or a Nikon, and call themselves "firstname lastname Photography"... because i checked out a TON of websites, and some people way overcharged their sessions for the low quality photo's they took! although we were on a budget, i decided that photography was something i would not hold back on, since pictures are memories captured forever!
Kate was a photography major at BYU (very intense program!) and has been a professional photographer for over 10 years! i could definitely tell that she is so experienced- when she would pose us, she'd say things like "move your chin down just a little" and stuff like that to get the perfect angle for us! and her camera is AMAZING. Justin and I actually zoomed in as far as we could on one of our engagement pics, and we zoomed right into his stubble. and it was still really clear. HAHA she has one heck of a camera (seriously, click on one of the pictures to expand it and you'll know what i mean) and like five lenses she switches out with depending on where/how she's shooting.
we instantly fell in love with her at our engagement shoot. she is just so dang funny and talented! i'm so glad we had her photograph our engagments, bridals, and wedding day, so that we were completely comfortable with her by the end (although it didn't take us that long at all:)
and- oh my- she has the 3 most darling kids!!! when she delivered our engagement disk to us, she brought her kids. two girls and a boy. one of the girls said to us as soon as we met up with them - "YOU GUYS ARE A CUTE COUPLE!" hahaha. so precious.
point is, if you're looking for a wonderful hilarious talented photographer and you're in the utah/salt lake valley area, be sure to hit up Kate Benson!!!
HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND, everyone! i know I'm looking forward to relaxing from school!!
