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

Igor and I both grew up in Salt Lake City, our immediate families (minus his dad) are in Salt Lake City, and we lived in Salt Lake City while planning our wedding. So getting married in Utah was the obvious choice. While I didn’t have my future wedding plans fully flushed out, I always knew […]

Things to Consider When Choosing a Wedding Venue (& Why We Chose Snowbasin)

My first baby is one month old today! In celebration, I decided to write out my labor and delivery experience. I like hearing other people’s birth stories and wanted to share mine in case anyone else is in the same boat. If words like “dilation” or “pushing” weird you out, I highly recommend not reading […]

Nikola’s Birth Story

Once Igor and I decided to get married, I wanted to get married sooner rather than later. And not wait long to move in together, combine bank accounts, and other things you do when you commit to being life partners.  But just when Covid couldn’t get more bothersome, I tried to plan a wedding. I’ve […]

Legal Wedding

Igor and I decided to get married in November. So really the proposal was just a romantic gesture that I told Igor he still needed to do lol. When we decided to get married, I didn’t want to wait long to move in together, combine bank accounts, and basically do all the things you can […]

My Own Proposal

My mom told me not to acknowledge her turning 50, but I ignored that and involved all her closest family and friends to celebrate her wonderful life. The older I get, the more grateful I am for her wonderful influence. Our family is truly blessed.

My Mom’s 50th Birthday

It’s the beginning of a New Year (ish. It’s still January, okay???) and everyone is inspired to self-improve. Myself included. In the past, I’ve really struggled with goal setting. At the beginning of 2018, I wrote out a list of everything I wanted to accomplish. These dreams had deadlines and dollar signs and other specific […]

It’s a New Year – Let’s Talk About Setting Goals

I turned 21 and Arya defeated the night king – what a great day! On one hand, I was really excited to turn 21. I can now fully participate in all events! At the same time, I’ve been pretty cognizant of getting older and it’s scary. I need to figure out who I want to […]

My 21st Birthday

photo credit to Hannah Maria Photo My cousin Alex got married this month! The first of my generation to do so, the whole family was super excited. My mom’s side of the family are all in different states ( and going to med school lmao), but growing up the aunts and uncles made it clear […]

Thoughts from My First Wedding as a Guest

I dabbled in photography in high school, and then really committed to the business in 2017. I’m so lucky that 2018 was just as amazing, and I’m excited to pull back the curtain and share my 2nd ever BTS post <3 This year has been amazing and as I look back through these images, I […]
