Lindsay. Need I say more?

Wow. Before I get started on this gorgeous bride, I have an announcement to make! After months and months of saving, I have finally upgraded my camera! And I LOVE it. Holy smokes. This was my first session I shot with my 5D and I couldn’t be more happy with it. This is also the first session during which I exclusively used my 50mm 1.8 lens. It stretched me a bit, because I had no zoom, but it sure delivered!

Mother Nature threatened to overthrow our bridal session. About 10 minutes before we were scheduled to meet at Thanksgiving Point, the sky opened up and oh boy did it rain! I had come from Orem, though, where the clouds had already passed through, so I was hoping it would move along in 15 or 20 minutes. Lindsay was convinced she just had rotten luck, because we had icky weather the day of their engagement shoot, too. But lo and behold–once she had changed into her dress, you couldn’t even tell it had rained!! The pavement was almost dry, the sun was shining, and the sky was partly cloudy. Thank you, Utah weather. So much for bad luck, huh? I’ll bet all y’all would agree with me when I say she couldn’t have picked a better day. Check these out!

Yes, her eyes are really that amazing in real life. No photoshopping here. Just blinding sun, right Lindsay??

So, I couldn’t decide on these next two. Literally. I was looking back and forth at the two of them, trying to decide whether I liked the landscape, or the portrait version better, and I failed to come to a conclusion. What do you guys think? Landscape or portrait?

    wow, these photos are just breath taking! Great job Lauren!! As for my thoughts on the portrait or landscape shot, I couldn’t really choose either! haha

    Amazing!

    WOW Lauren, that upgrade sure was worth it! Those pictures are positively stunning!! I love the landscape one – the portrait lacks a focal point, so your eye has a hard time finding a main point to look at. However, in the landscape shot, the subject grounds your eye and let’s you enjoy the ‘frame’ she is in. (How’s that for a critique 😉 What else can I say? I want your camera and am totally jealous. One day, one day….

    I like the landscape best as well. You were right, this girl is stunning! You go Lindsay! 😛 Lo, these are the best you’ve ever done. ❤ I can't wait for our newborn shoot!
