Whimsical engagement photos - Cotton Candy, UP House and More

Maybe one of these days I will get caught up on posting the many many photo shoots I want to share with you. The following photos, for instance, have been sitting on my computer waiting to be posted since August. But finally I've gotten around to watermarking them and writing this post. My niece through marriage, Jenny, was the mastermind behind this whole shoot. All the locations, the props (a few that aren't featured in this post) and the clothes. I just took the photos for her and fiance Harrison and we had a great time.

Cotton candy is always a great photo prop. And more than that, Jenny had a working cotton candy machine at her wedding, complete with bow tied cotton candy maker.

I'm going to guess that kiss tasted like...cotton candy.

This was the location of their first date I believe.

Such a gorgeous mural in downtown Provo. Who says there's no style in this college town?


Dancing to the music of the friendly neighborhood street musicians.


Nothing says 'I love you' quite like a kick in the pants.


These next few photos were taken at the UP House in Herriman Utah. It was an extremely blustery day though somehow we managed to catch some shots right as each huge gust of wind would die down. I was also worried about the glaring sun beating down on us, but it's position actually created a more dreamy, magical feel. Not unlike the house itself.

The above picture is Jenny's personal favorite. Harrison was so good at jumping like he was getting carried away by those balloons. And with the gusting winds it wouldn't have surprised me if he wasn't faking it.

Loved doing this photo shoot! Thanks so much for asking me Jenny!


  1. Awesome shots! Really wishing you didn't live so far away (for like, the billionth time ever).

  2. I love them and love you, thank you for your creativity and patience with us!
