Black Leather, Joshua Trees, and a Wedding

I’m gonna be real with you… this video is very special to me. I designed it around the dress, a dress that I’ve had for a couple of years. It’s been hanging in my closet praying for the attention it deserves. So I decided to do something with it. Why not go somewhere adventurous, with some models and a photographer, and make some amazing content?! The whole purpose to this was to get photos to sell it. Now I’m rethinking… do YOU think I should sell or keep this gorgeous wedding dress?

Home in Payson Utah (Real Estate)

Real Estate Photography and Video has always been some of my favorite things to capture!

I love imagining all the memories the families are going to have in these homes. In fact, when I create Real Estate Videos I incorporate what life would be like living in the home and neighborhood. I make it very story oriented so that the relator is selling experiences, not just a house.

Enjoy some photos of this gorgeous home in Payson UT.

Take a little journey to Pacifica, California. It is unlike any beach that you have ever seen. The waves are loud and the sand, at times, look black.

It is hauntingly beautiful. So sit back and enjoy the sounds of the ocean…

What is a Lifestyle Video? And Why You Should Have One!

Everyone always asks me, What is a Lifestyle Video? Why should I get one?

Well, how often do you get your whole family in front of the camera, at the same time, doing an activity together? A lifestyle video creates such an opportunity and captures the natural interactions between family members.

Lifestyle videos can capture a small moment in time that nothing else, including pictures, can ever replace.

Below is a cute Lifestyle video about the Quigley Family. Check it out!

And Bonus! If you are setting apart time out of your crazy life to create a Lifestyle video of your family, hire a photographer as well. Then you can hit two birds with one stone and get family pictures and a timeless Lifestyle video.

Why I Live in Utah

My love for travel has also grown my love for my home state. Utah is so beautiful and there are so many things to do, especially if you like the outdoors!

As well as the outdoors there is also Salt Lake City, a cute little city that is so much fun. It’s quiet but it still has lots of life! It’s the perfect mix between the middle-of-nowhere (where I grew up) and a big city. I really adore that I can walk around and just hang out. Plus, the food is so good!

This place is defiantly a great home base for me!

Watch this short, little video to see what I’m talking about. And as always, Enjoy!

p.s Do you need a videographer for your special event? Hit me up, like I said, I LOVE to travel! 😊

Lands Covered in Ice: My Iceland Experience

Click HERE to watch the video I made in Iceland!

My first trip outside of the country definitely wasn’t what I imagined. Iceland wasn’t my first choice but it turned out to be one of the most beautiful and life changing trips that I have been on.

My boyfriend, Marcos, and I made a last minute decision when purchasing our tickets to Iceland through a Black Friday deal. The tickets were so cheap! It would be a perfect place to bring my new drone. Plus, have you seen Secret Life of Walter Mitty?! Come on, that place is breathtaking!

We arrived in the Reykjavík airport in the middle of January at 4am. My first impression of the country was “Oh my goodness, it’s freezing!… it’s dark… it’s snowing… and it’s freezing!” Once the sun came up, which was only for 5 hours, I was able to get a better feel of the land.

We took our little rental car (smaller than my Prius) and drove through the capital city, Reykjavík. It was so wild to see how differently this country was compared to the United States. The biggest city in the country had no tall buildings. In fact, the buildings were all quite small and everything was so closely placed.

Toward the beginning of our stay we took a tour bus to see the northern lights. The bus took us outside of the city and we got to see a glimpse of the northern lights but it was something that could only be seen through my camera. We were a little underwhelmed by the experience but that didn’t stop us from creating more adventures.

We took our little car through crazy snow storms where we only saw huge trucks and buses. It was dangerous but it was so worth it. We visited Gullfoss Falls, the Great Geysir, and Hotel Budir located on a lava field!

During our last days in Iceland we were walking in downtown Reykjavik taking in the scenery and enjoying some fish and chips. We were in a little museum when we overheard someone talking about the Northern lights. This person said that there were boats that take you out away from all of the city lights. He was probably a salesman sent to advertise to stupid tourists… but it worked on us!

That night we found ourselves on a little boat with five other people and our tour guide. The boat took us to a tiny island called Videy. It has a church, a cemetery, two homes, and the Imagine Peace Tower which was created by Yoko Ono as a memorial for John Lennon! Anyway, we followed our guide up a hill and waited…

Then, literally out of nowhere, green, blue, and orange lights appeared. They were dancing up and down the sky. We were watching the Northern Lights in all of their glory and it was surreal.

It was one of those moments that you JUST want to take in. I didn’t worry about my camera, getting the perfect shot, or even how much this trip was costing (heads up, it’s expensive once you get there).

I just sat and enjoyed because…
