When Caroline, one of my best friends, got engaged, I was over the moon. Five months later, she hadn’t done anything related toward wedding planning. She said she was so busy already & the idea of organizing an event like that seemed stressful and unenjoyable. Caroline had been leaning toward eloping in a destination location, […]

Timber Moose Lodge Wedding Information & Cost

Igor & I had already gotten legally & church married before our actual wedding-wedding celebration. But I love wedding ceremonies & I still wanted to do something special with all our friends & family present – even if it was really just symbolic.  And I didn’t want to throw a generic wedding – I wanted […]

5 Ways We Personalized Our Ceremony

I had the privilege of shooting Bryce & Kari’s bridal photos a few days before they tied the knot at Tunnel Springs Park in North Salt Lake, Utah. And it was an absolutely perfect photography day. The sun was golden and the fields were so lush and green. Which was fitting because their wedding colors […]

Utah Mountain Engagement Photographer Caili Chung

I’m actually related to this gorgeous soon-to-be bride. My cousin found her other half, and they’re getting married this fall in Chicago. Very grateful for the privilege of being her wedding photographer. This couple lives in Indiana, but luckily we had plans to see each other so we could take engagement photos before the big […]

Chad’s family has a place in Utah by the Jordanelle. He told me that he was bringing his girlfriend to Park City for a ski trip and wanted to propose while here. They were staying a few minutes away from our planned location, however Chad had a hard time getting Krista out the door since […]

Red Butte Garden Wedding Salt Lake City Utah Caili Chung Photography Orangerie

Jon and Kira are wonderful. While working with them, I appreciated how easy-going and fun they were, but also organized and responsive and able to execute a really beautiful event. Kira & Jon planned something very intimate by inviting only ~20 of their closest friends and family to celebrate this day with them. This allowed […]

Jon & Kira’s Intimate Blue and White Wedding at Red Butte Garden

Dayna’s been best friend’s with William’s sister for decades. So these two knew of each other for years, but it wasn’t a romantic relationship. Until it became that way… A few weeks ago, these 2 decided to get married on 2/22/22 at 2:22 pm (adjacent… Things ran a little late haha). They’re from Tennessee, but […]

William & Dayna’s Snowy Small Wedding at Jordan Pines Campground

Dayna & William are from Tennessee, but they came to Utah to get married in our beautiful mountains. It was a short trip to Salt Lake City, but they had a local tour guide (me lol) and so they were able to see a lot of Utah! The day before their children flew in for […]

William & Dayna’s Engagement Session in Downtown Salt Lake City

Bill & Hayley celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary by leaving the babies with grandparents and coming out to Park City, Utah! They live in Houston, so this definitely was a change of scenery (and temperature)! Hayley had dreams of a snowy, mountainous photoshoot and I’m glad we were able to make it happen in […]

Bill & Hayley’s 10 Year Anniversary Photos in Big Cottonwood Canyon

Badr & Fatimah are adorable people, and I was honored to celebrate their marriage with them! We started out at Fatimah’s home for getting ready & a first look. Then, we adventured to the Utah State Capitol for gorgeous photos of the couple. It was pretty much as warm and sunny as a January wedding […]
