Paul + Carrie- Wedding Preview

Let me first say that 2008 was an INCREDIBLE year for us here at RedFeather Photography. Thank you everyone for your love and support! We had a great time working with so many awesome people this year- I can not believe just how blessed we are! Every single person who we work with, who views our images, who reads the blog or just thinks good thoughts for us has made this year one of the best ever!

That being said, I couldn't let 2008 end without just one last wedding.

Carrie and Paul. Wow. These two are fun, vibrant, oh-so-silly, and crazy in love. I know I have said it before, but I love love. Seriously. Love.

Carrie and Paul were sealed in the Mesa Temple on the 30th...a very busy Tuesday. The day before we went out in the afternoon to do some fun portraits with them and get some of the photos done in the beautiful afternoon light.

Their images speak for themselves. These two are incredible. Carrie looked beautiful, and Paul cleaned up nicely too. We got some really incredible images- these two were so fun to work with (and their families are sweeter than sugar too!).

I got a new toy from Kirk for Christmas I just had to play with. I have to say, I like it. I can now add pretty stars and other shapes to some shots, and some really cool, crazy, unpredictable selective focus. This image was created with a lensbaby lens, and a creative aperture kit which when given to me for Christmas garnered another "Merry Christmas, now what is it exactly?" from my wonderful mother in law (my favorite kind of gifts are the ones I have to explain...hehe).

Paul and Carrie are the authority in silly faces. Seriously, they have lots of them and they are all awesome and hilarious. See?

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B.

Exhibit C...and there is more from their engagement session too...

Of course, there are many wonderful men in Carrie's life (lucky girl!). Her brothers are a riot!

The little girls in the family were the very definition of adorable. Just their shoes alone will make you melt. See?

Her friends are pretty fun too...

It was amazingly wonderful to work with such a great bunch of people there to support such a wonderful couple. Truly beautiful.

Don't you dare think of going anywhere before seeing their slideshow. They had too many great previews to cram into a flimsy little blog post. You'll be sad if you miss them.
