Abigail + Ethan | American Fork Canyon Engagements

January 20, 2020

This gorgeous sunset engagement session in the aspen groves of American Fork Canyon was seriously what dreams are made of! When Abigail and Ethan reached out to me about shooting their wedding, adventure session, and engagements I was STOKED! I love getting to work with my couples throughout the entire wedding and planning process. Engagement sessions allow me the chance to really get to know my couples, and allows them the chance to feel comfortable in front of the camera so that by the time the wedding rolls around we’re basically best friends. When discussing locations Abigail and Ethan talked about how once they’re married they’ll be moving to Louisiana so they really wanted to highlight some of the awesomeness that is Utah before they go. Of course one of the first things that came to mind was an aspen grove! So we met at Chik-fil-A (because you have to be well fed before starting a session haha), and drove up American Fork Canyon.

We couldn’t have timed it any better as we shot in the aspens right as the sun shone through the trees – it was straight up MAGIC I’m telling you. We laughed and quoted The Office more times than is publicly acceptable and talked about our mutual love for the Oregon Coast (where Ethan is originally from). Ethan and Abigail are two people who truly just enjoy each others’ company. There was no pressure, no worry, no stress, just love.  One of my favorite things is when my couples trust my creative vision but also share ideas or concepts that they would like to try. When Ethan suggested they lay in the grass (one of my favorite shots) I was more than ready to put a new twist on it and capture the two of them as they fell together into the tall grass, giggling the whole way down.My goal for all my engagement sessions is for it to feel like my couples are on a date and I’m just third-wheelin’ to document all the love.

First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d
like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested
to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out
there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems
like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how
to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!

Hey there!

Thank you so much! I start out with a list of things I want to talk about in the post and then expand upon them one by one. Time spent brainstorming is never time wasted! It can be difficult to start out, which is why when the words are flowin I usually use that energy to do a couple posts all at once while I have the momentum going. I hope this helps! Good luck!

I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today..

Hi there, You’ve done a great job. I will definitely digg it and personally suggest to my friends. I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this website.

Awesome post! Keep up the great work! 🙂
