Sometimes it's just a little bit too cold outside for a bridal shoot during the winter in Northern Utah, so we improvise. The Utah State Capitol is a perfect location to photograph such the occasion and capture Maddie's personality, elegant style and amazing dress. There are so many great reasons to shoot at the Utah State Capitol. Just to name a few lets start with the sheer mass of the building and so much working space. Another is the timeless style of the venue, the enormous marble pillar's, the beautiful stairway's and of course the lighting. There is so much natural ambient light coming through the windows that it doesn't really matter if it's morning, mid-day or evening, because the light is so spectacular to photograph :D
I usually recommend a bouquet of flowers for the bride's to hold so they have something for their hands to do as we change up different poses and perspectives. In Maddie's case, she really didn't need them. With her beautiful dress and its details, amazing hair and tiny waistline to show off, it would have been too busy otherwise. Maddie wanted to make sure I really emphasized her bow, that she just loves and I wanted to emphasize her great lines and beautiful face.
It was the best of both worlds, not too mention those beautiful blue eyes. She did such a great job and we had a ton of fun while staying nice and warm at our beautiful location.
