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
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.
Viado family, thank you so much for continuing to include me in your lives and in your family photo fun. Your family has always felt like my family to me. Love you guys!! Trish
A few weeks ago, our friends Allyson & Ryan became mommy & daddy. With the arrival of little baby Campbell, it’s been wonderful to see them loving her. It’s been a super fun journey with them over the past four years, in getting to know them, becoming great friends and now, the hopes of our little girls growing up together and being best friends. I was really glad to share this experience with them and also photograph little Campbell. She’s a little adorable peanut. Such a cute little baby, and so perfect. Hard not to love her:). Allyson & Ryan, we know you’re going to be amazing parents and having this much love in your lives will change you forever. Love all of you!!
And now to one of my favorite families in Park City; The Swishers:). These people are just some of the nicest, sweetest and most loving people I’ve met since coming to Park City. I’ve been photographing their family for a few years now and it’s always a total joy to see them. They’re just such happening people and their kids are so friendly and fun, it’s just always awesome to see them. And I LOVE their photos!! Shooting in snow is just the best! And they love doggies too!!
Lisa & Stephen, thank you again for having me in your home and sharing part of your family holiday with me. Excited to see more of you guys soon! Much love, Trish
Last weekend for Thanksgiving the entire Salway family made their way to Park City for a week of family fun…Part of that fun was to be their family photo shoot. But MAN was it cold outside for a shoot and we even kept trying to move the shoot to avoid the weather! But they did their best to get smiles on everyone’s faces; after a few large group shots and fun with the kiddos, it was a wrap!
We’ve known this amazing family for many years now and their family just keeps growing into an awesomely large loving group. And seeing the youngest members grow into adults is just amazing.
Kristin & Josh, love you guys and your family. A quick sneak peek into the few fun moments where everyone did their best to bring it! xoxo, Trish
Last weekend was a whirlwind of fun seeing so many of my favorite people and meeting someone who is new to the world; Little Jameson. Could this baby be any cuter or any sweeter? He had a hard time sleeping at the shoot because he was so excited about his first photo session, but I know he was having a good time. I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve seen a baby smile this many times in the first five minutes of a shoot! He’s obviously getting a lot of love and attention from some pretty awesome parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles…oh and of course, his adorable cousins too!
Laurel & Dan, congratulations on this beautiful miracle. He’s simply adorable. Love to all of you and hope you enjoy your quick sneak peek. I know how anxious you are about seeing your gorgeous pics, so I got your blog post up ASAP!!:):) love you all!
Last Saturday I shared the afternoon with the Archibald family here in Park City for family photos. Can I just tell you; they are the nicest, sweetest, cutest family you’ve ever met:). We had so much fun at their shoot! We laughed, we sang, we giggled…but mostly we ran with their 18 month old daughter Addie. Addie is just so CUTE! And what an adorable little outfit to boot. She is just a little slice of heaven and you can tell her parents think so too! She loves, loves, loves her doggy Niayah, who appears to be one of the best and most patient dogs ever!! And as a bonus we were able to squeeze out some of the last drops of fall color in the area. So gorgeous this time of year!
Archibald family, thank you so much for spending the afternoon with me and for playing along with all my silliness as I tried to get Addie to really have a fun experience. And thank you so much for bringing your AWESOME POOCH! She was really my assistant that day for sure!! You’re two great parents with one loving little baby, which always equates to a great time at the photo shoot:). Hope you enjoy your quick sneeker peeker!! Much love! Trish
I’m pretty sure I have one of the best jobs ever. And part of that job is watching the babies I photograph as neborns growing up and watching their awesome parents love them to pieces. I photographed little Beck when he was just home from the hospital and he was so adorable even then. Now he’s grown into a little boy and he’s even cuter now:). He was wearing the cutest little sweater and he’s just so well behaved and excited about all kinds of noises and new surroundings. Just great to see him as he grows and changes. He is love and a complete joy to be around. And the other total bonus was that for Angie & Link’s family shoot, we hit the colors right on! It was absolutely gorgeous in the apsens up high; so bright and colorful that it was yellow everywhere! Really was a fun afternoon with them after a crazy few days of weather.
Angie & Link, thank you so much for having me in your lives to document your lives. Love your perfect little family and I hope you enjoy this quick sneak peek from your shoot!! xoxo, Trish A while back, Angie mentioned to me that she and Link hadn’t really done wedding photos, so I really wanted to shoot just a quick couple of shots of them too:)
Last weekend I had a great time photographing our awesome Veternarian, Kate Bjordahl and her beautiful family. Special guests for the shoot were their new kitty Flash and their new pup Potato! Can I just say that their kids are just adorable! Super funny characters so there were a lot of recon missions and captures to get these monkeys to make this shoot happen:) But truly, I could photograph little Ingrid all day. She is just the cutest with that adorable hairdo and her overall cutie pie look! It was a quick trip to grab some beautiful photos in the fall leaves and just a great morning with their family. Kate has been a part of our family since we met her. She’s just an amazing person with a wonderful heart for animals. Thank you for sharing a little photo time with me Kate & Family, and hope you enjoy this quick little sneaker peeker!! xoxo, Trish
