A few weeks ago we flew up to Salt Lake City Utah to photograph our AWESOME new friends Gretta & Rob! You may recall this handsome couple from their fabulous engagement sessionwe posted a few months back. They were married on May 10th at the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. We had been looking forward to this wedding ever since we shot their engagement session because Gretta and Rob are seriously one of the most photogenic couples we have ever worked with and we knew their day was going to be amazing!

One of the first details we caught as they exited the temple were Gretta's orange shoes....









While dining in Salt Lake City our friend introduced us to the most amazing Mexican restaurant called The Red Iguana. We fell in love with the outer exterior red and orange walls so we decided to come back on the wedding day for some fun backdrops in Gretta and Rob's portraits.









My favorite shot of the day! Go Rob!!!!

I still can't get over Gretta's yellow-ish eyes!


We also found an abandoned house with a yard full of dandelions!






Gretta attended high school in Salt Lake City at West High and she told us about a huge "W" there, which was perfect since her new last name is now Whalen!






Of course we had get a quick shot with our totally awesome clients and friends!

Btw....the Kiss sign in album was a TOTAL hit!

Thank you, thank you, and a big CONGRATULATIONS to Gretta and Rob, we had a blast capturing this awesome day for you two! Click here to view their slideshow with "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel!

What- no picture of the hands on the Beehive doorknob? You guys are so creative. It is nice to see some variety outside the SLC Temple. After hearing that you guys were shooting there, I was so excited to see what you came up with. Makes me want to get married again.

We're sure glad we got to know you before you became so famous! We loved these photos. They are the best ones yet. You just keep getting better and better. Nice way to sneak in the photos of yourselves at the end :b

Roger w Ellsworth said:
so about that...yeah. The best! Rob and Gretta have it, if you know what i mean. Just like Bert and Lonnie (easy movie quote, i gave that one to you). Actually, it was seeing their engagements that made me want to quit smoking and beating my red-headed step child (no offense Amelia). That's not all really true, their engagements made me start responding to blogs which in itself is a huge step for me in this digital era. Thanks Lyons for your "one step plan" into the future. CONFESSION: I never smoked. I wish i had a red-headed step child with my one and only love Lyndzee
