Utah State Capital Bridals | Albuquerque Wedding Photographer

The Utah State Capital is where my darling niece wanted to do her bridals. I had never been there. I was blown away by the stunning architecture, glass ceilings, and marble everything. Not every bride decides to take bridal pictures before the wedding. In Utah, it is very normal. Heck, I did them with my husband weeks before we actually tied the knot in St. George, UT. I wanted beautiful, stress free pictures and I knew I wasn’t going to get them on my actual wedding day. My sweet niece knew that too!

Things don’t always go as planned when taking pictures. When we got to the Utah state capitol to take bridals there were hundreds of protesters in bright red shirts. Our plans of a big marble hall for bridals got turned on it’s head. We could have called it quits or gone somewhere else, but didn’t. We weren’t going to give up! This sweet bride wanted this location more than anything. So working around all the red protesters (who were super nice and offered us lunch btw) was a challenge, yes. But one that was so dang worth it. I mean come on… look at her!!! Talk about a princess.

Dungeons and Dragons brought Zoe and Jake together. Each were invited to play the iconic board game by a friend. That night not only a fantasy game was played, but a fantasy romance started. These two were inseparable from that night onward. Jake was incredibly sweet during the bridals. He wanted Zoe to be in the spotlight and was happy to give it to her. With his cute smile and support these bridal pictures turned out as magical as their relationship.

    Hi, I'm Alison:

    Years ago (more than I'd like to admit) I was knee deep in dirty diapers and cleaning spaghetti off the ceiling. I loved my boys but was losing myself with each load of laundry I did. In an attempt to create some me time I picked up a camera and took my first class in photography. What I learned was more than how to take pictures but what my soul needed. To show how each family's story is unique and beautiful.
