Zion National Park Wedding + Mike and Jenn

Oh lord this wedding was perfect.
Mike and Jenn wanted their wedding at Clear Creek Ranch to be simple:
partying in nature with their closest people.

I LOVE that they trusted me about adding in buffer time into their wedding timeline!!
We scheduled the First Look at 2pm with the ceremony at 5pm.
On paper that looks nuts! 3 hours for photos?!?!
No– what it means is that there is an hour of “buffer time” in case things run late….
And they did!!! The First Look actually happened at 3pm,
but we were all able to relax and have a great time taking portraits in Zion National Park,
prior to the wedding at 5pm! It was perfect!! Being “an hour late” didn’t matter
AT ALL because we accounted for that in the timeline already!
I would guess 80% of wedding timelines run late…
But if you expect it and account for it, you will remain stress-free on the wedding day!
This is the most important advice ladies!

And…I shot this wedding by myself and I am So Proud of it: )
