A few weeks ago, we had more amazing company. Our old friends Melanie & Greg showed up for a quick weekend visit with their great friends Robyn & Glenn. To say we had an amazing time seeing them really is an injustice. We shot their wedding many years ago, I think almost 10 years ago…and we were all in the same places in our lives, so we also developed a great friendship with them. They are seriously two of the most loving and amazing people we’ve ever know. Such supportive friends and just really doing super cool adventures in life. They and their awesome friends made time for portrait shoots and I’ll be blogging Robyn & Glenn next week. I can’t tell you how happy it makes my heart to know how happy they are. Their love has just become even more incredible with age. Seeing them just made me miss them 100 times more. But man was it an awesome, fun visit!! Mel & Greg, come back soon!! Just a couple quick pics…but truly, there were so many I loved.
It has been a crazy summer. So much fun in just a short period of time; I’m really going to miss summer this year.
It’s also been an extremely special summer; I was lucky enough to photograph the families of several friends this summer and lots of headshots. One, my former coworker, Jason and his beautiful daughter Liv, and another, my best friend from the fourth grade, Devon and her beautiful family and lastly my amazingly beautiful friend Jamie and her adorable family. I’ve been photographing Jamie’s family for years and I cannot get over how grown up the kids are now. They were just so little when I first began to photograph them. Sigh…. It was beyond a blessing to cross paths with these old friends this summer but besides that, I’ve been photographing so many amazing families. 22 shoots in four weeks. Some of them are becoming old friends too as I’ve been shooting them year after year, and some are new friends!
This blog post is just a handful of those shoots, but I wanted to share. It’s been a whirlwind this summer, but a summer of incredible people and photos is my kind of summer. Love to all of these beautiful families!
This weekend was an incredibly fun weekend for me as I had the joy of photographing Kelly & Pav’s wedding celebration weekend. What an awesome event! And what an incredible joining of two loving families!
The weekend began with a cozy dinner at one of Park City’s best Italian restaurants, Cortona, and you could literally feel the happiness in the room! Everyone was so excited for this wedding!! Saturday was wedding day and it started super early and seriously continued on until the late hours. It was like we just kept going and going from location to location! First up, groom photos at their home, followed by bridal photos at the Montage. Then the ceremony site atop Empire pass and lastly an incredible reception held at Riverhorse. It was an incredibly full day that was just one minute of joy to the next. My favorite moment– when Pav saw Kelly for the first time as she came down the aisle. He smiled from ear to ear and Kelly was absolutely STUNNING! What a gorgeous bride!!
Kelly & Pav, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek! Thank you for welcoming me into your family. It really was wonderful to be a part of such an important day in your lives. Much love, Trish Watson spent most of the morning trying to figure out what we were doing there. He later became bored and took a power nap before the photos with the “Best Man/Dog”:) A gorgeous reception at the Riverhorse on Main
The Evans family visited Park City for a few days to share an awesome week with each other! With half a family in North Carolina and half a family in Napa, Park City seemed like the perfect middle spot for fun! And that fun involved yours truly for a fun family photo session. I love their energy! They just really were so warm and welcoming we really had a great time at the shoot. They love photography and were so open to shooting a bunch of gorgeous pictures, I’m pretty sure I could’ve spent the whole day with them! And their little girls were just darling!! Evans family, come back soon!! Park City will miss you!! much love, Trish
A had a super cool last minute booking last Saturday with the Kelley Family! They came to Park City for a family gathering and wanted a last minute photographer for their family shoot! I’m so glad it worked out. They are such a wonderful, sweet and loving group of people! Beautiful children and grandchildren and all the kids were so funny and helpful with the little ones it was great!! Enjoy your sneak peek Kelley Family!! xo, Trish
A few weeks ago during my last Vegas shooting trip, I had a super fun time photographing one of my favorite families; the Viado family. I first met them when we photographed Lourdes & Brian’s engagement photos, and then their adorable son Jace’s baby photos. Soon after her sister Cari met this amazing man named Geofrey and they were married and welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Zenyatta. And this time, I was lucky enough to photograph not only, Cari, Geofrey, Zen, Lourdes, Brian and Jace, but also their extended immediate family and Geofrey’s sister and son. It was a super fun time because I just love how happy this family is. They’re always so joyous and filled with laughter it never feels like work. And in my mind, I really believe the photos show it!! That love for them translates into amazingly beautiful photos.
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to photograph two amazing professionals; Corey Dutton Curwick & Jay Dutton. Both are power houses in their respective businesses, but both were looking to create a professional image that would fit who they are in their lives and also an image that would tell more of the story of their experience to their clients. And I truly believe we accomplished just that.
I think Corey, who is the President & Founder of Private Money Utah, is one of the most beautiful women out there; strong, professional, active and absolutely loves the outdoors. She really has got it together in a great balance of work and play. She works insanely hard for her clients, and delivers on her promises.
Jay also loves the outdoors and the urban cool lifestyle; he’s so stylish that he reminds me of one of those cool skate kids of my time who grew into an amazing business person with savvy and city smarts. As the CEO of his company, Jay is an absolute genius when it comes to SEO and his company Double Clutch Marketing is growing incredibly. Just the type of people I love to work with. Corey & Jay, thank you for trusting your professional images to me and I hope you love these amazing pics!
The last two weeks have been a bit busy as I’ve been doing quite a few professional headshots; mostly environmental headshots which are a great way to recreate or improve your professional avatar or headshot for your marketing materials. First up is the Gilbert Team, which is a power house of realtors in the Las Vegas Valley. I just love these new shots and they do too! Just a great way to kick off summer with new gorgeous photos of a gorgeous team of realtors!
Last week I photographed an amazing and gorgeous couple for their Park City Engagement Photos; meet Kelly & Pav. These two sweet and wonderful people will be tying the knot in Park City in late July and I’m excited to be capturing their wedding day as well!
What I thought was super cool about this shoot was that Pav had a clear vision of what he loves most about the Park City area; mountains, water, snow and broad landscapes…and of course, Kelly. So I scouted for about two days before finding this magical spot. It had everything they wanted and I’m so pleased with the images. These two have amazing chemistry which makes shooting fantastic:)!
Kelly & Pav, enjoy your sneak peek! I’m looking forward to your wedding day and I’m glad you’re enjoying the first part of our photo fun!! Much love, Trish I love it when couples are just giddy and silly. It’s THE BEST!!
A few weeks ago I had a wonderful day shooting Jeff & Christine’s wedding day at the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas Hotel. It was a truly spectacular event that they shared with not only their beautiful children, but also their closest friends and family.
It was a fabulous day for a wedding and what I loved most was the nervous energy between them. Once they were in the same room together for the first sighting, you could feel their excitement about their wedding, and their affection for each other was truly beautiful. Jeff treated Christine with such tenderness and love, they were a joy to be with all day! Jeff & Christine, thank you so much for including me on such a special day in your lives. Wishing you both all the love you can hold in your arms and in your hearts!! xoxo, Trish
