Nori & Alex | Utah Proposal

14 fev 2020

© Sami J Photography -- samijphotography.com

By the end of 9th grade, Alex and Nori had fallen in love. The first time they held hands was at Lagoon Amusement Park in 2012. Alex desperately wanted to kiss her at the top of the Ferris Wheel but bailed at the last second. After that Summer, a lot of different situations put them distant from each other for over 5 years.

After a while, a shower of “coincidences” started to happen which put them in the same path again. They started to work together and then became close friends, leading to a new opportunity to hang out with friends at the same amusement park from 7 years ago. Their friends bailed the last minute, which without knowing, contributed for them to have the cutest new beginning of their story.

On that day, they held hands for the second first time. Nori asked him if he regretted not kissing her. Without hesitation, he said, “Absolutely.” Before the park closed they heard fireworks going off. To get a better view they raced to the Ferris Wheel. He looked her in the eye and said, “I would hate to make the same mistake twice.” They leaned in and shared the kiss that changed the rest of their lives.

Six months later, Alex was driving her and diverted from the supposed destination to ended up in a foggy riverside trail. He put the top down on his convertible and they sat Nori above the back seats while his friend drove them throughout the supposed “Memory Lane”, in the middle of nowhere… Alex and his father had made the street sign and affixed at the start of the road.

His friends and family awaited along the path, holding picture posters of important moments of their relationship. Alex recounted their story to her while passing by the posters, leading to the culminating point when he knelt in front of her and said, “I didn’t believe in soul mates, but looking back on all of these memories, I am sure that we were meant to be together.” Confetti cannons and cheers were let loose as she said yes.

Le Jardin Wedding // Tanya & Seth

12 dez 2019

Tanya and Seth are married! I became friends with Seth 6 years ago while we both were living in Arkansas. He is an amazing guy and it was fun to see his relationship to grow with Tanya while she was still living far away in Russia. He has served his church mission and after almost 10 years he got connected to her again and the romance developed. It was fun to be part of their wedding day and I hope you enjoy these pictures!

Melissa // Baby Shower

03 dez 2019

This beautiful girl had her baby shower organized by her group of best friends. They have been friends for the last 12 years..? Squad goals for sure! It was dreamy. Not only she looked perfect (doesn’t she look like a Barbie?), the whole decoration was just so perfect. It was hard to pick just a few pictures, so here it’s a good amount of my favorites. <3

It was raining so much at the time that we were taking these pictures! They decided to not use an umbrella and they faced the rain! After all, it was all worth it to be soaked wet because their pictures turned out so good!
