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
It has been an insanely busy spring already! I feel like I’ve been doing family shoots left and right and one day it’s crazy cold, the next day crazy warm! But such wonderful families! And everyone is really just enjoying all of this amazing snow. It’s been such a fun season this year!
Sunday night was a complete blast as I ran my Live Action photo both for Rich Fine’s 50th Birthday party! And what I always love is to share the photobooth movie with everyone afterwards!
He was in great spirits and his guests were just awesome for the booth! Some seriously animated folks for some serious party fun!!!
Happy 50th Birthday Rich!!
About a week ago, I photographed an absolutely gorgeous wedding. The wedding of Will Costello & Yvette Garcia held at one of Las Vegas’ most exclusive properties, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
It goes without saying, that this event was incredible! The bride and groom are just beautiful together. Yvette was absolutely stunning in her amazing wedding gown and Will was completely classic, old school Vegas dapper! They were joined by their closest family and friends for this incredible day in their lives. The weather was perfect for photos despite high winds, and everyone was so fun and welcoming that it was just a fantastic time!
Will & Yvette, thank you for sharing the biggest day of your lives with me. You two are just going to have such an awesome life together filled with love, travel and adventure that I’m really looking forward to hearing all about it. Hope the honeymoon was incredible!! TONS MORE phtoos coming soon!! MUAH!! Trish

They had an awesome time opening each other’s gifts…was super cool the way that each of them put together their gift story. A very cool First Sighting at the bar at the top of the Mandarin The ceremony was really really fun! Will basically had the best set of vows I’ve heard in years! And Yvette was just all giggles! Reception time was nothing but FUN!! And Donuts!
Last week I had a super fun shoot with Ashley & Jim while they were on vacation here in Park City!! We seriously had a blast. These two were just so sweet to each other and absolutely IN LOVE that it was just wonderful to spend the morning with them. Plus they are just hilarious! It seemed like the session went so fast because we were all having so much fun that it was like a flash in time. Ashley & Jim, thank you so much for spending your morning with me and part of your vacation. You two are AWESOME!! And it’s always great to be around people in a loving relationship. I’m glad Ashley’s mom let you into her heart:) Enjoy your quick sneaker peeker! Lots more coming!! xoxo, Trish
Last week I had the pleasure of hanging out with an awesome family; The Pilkos! They became a client last year after visiting our gallery in Park City, Utah and before we knew it, we were all together for family photos as well as fine art for their home in Deer Valley. They are just some of the sweetest folks around. Just an amazing family, and this year, we all came together for George and Janet to make it official. They’re now husband and wifey.
It was a really fun afternoon with them; a quick ceremony at the Episcopal church and then off to nature for some gorgeous family pics. George & Janet, Jared and I congratulate you on getting hitched. Being married has been one of the greatest joys of our lives and we know it’ll just bring more love in to your home. Wishing you a wonderful marriage! Enjoy the pics! xoxo, Trish
Had a fun Saturday night despite an insane storm dropping into Salt Lake and making it rain like crazy! I was out photographing Mallory & Stan’s wedding at Heritage Park. This super sweet young couple had a beautiful little wedding at this absolutely gorgeous venue! Mallory was a stunning bride despite bronchitis and a sinus infection and Stan was more fun than a barrel of monkeys! These two lovebirds are going to have an awesome life together with the love and support of their amazing family and friends.
Mallory & Stan, I wish you all the happiness in the world:) Love you guys and enjoy the sneak peek! xoxo, Trish
This past weekend I had some fun with a super sweet girl named Mallory. She’s getting ready to get married here in October at an awesome venue and I’m super excited to shoot her wedding day as well. She’s just adorable and funny and up for anything. Which pretty much makes up my kind of bride!
We took off Saturday for a little bit of bridal fun and it was magic. The grasses were tall and golden, the light was beautiful, she looked amazing and the leaves were turning. If that isn’t a recipe for gorgeous photos I just don’t know what is.
