Navy Wedding Dress | Springville Museum of Art Styled Bridals

Springville Museum of Art.  Wow!  I never knew about that gorgeous place until I took part in this stunning styled session.  If you are in Utah County and wondering a good place to have your wedding ceremony or reception this is a great place.  

And... I'm sure people who follow my work are tired of hearing me say it but I. WILL. BLOG. MORE!  I've had so many gorgeous brides and weddings this year- not to mention a handful of adorable families that I just need to share.  It's hard to do everything perfectly but I do post on Instagram pretty regularly little sneak peeks of what I'm up to: @connieballuff.  Thanks for being here!  Enjoy these images all shot on film and check out all the vendors below and their instagram pages :)

Salt Lake City Temple Wedding - Sneak Peek | Utah Wedding Photographer

It's been way too long since I've updated this blog- my website is so incomplete in general!  It's good to be busy with life but I really wish I had more time to update my recent work because every new shoot I do becomes my new favorite, it seems.  I appreciate you being here!  I will have new galleries and posts coming this month!


Utah Styled Bridals | Why florals matter

Same dress, same model, different florals, different look.  I wanted to blog about something I think is important for every bride to consider when planning her wedding:  her florals!  I was married in the days before pinterest so I didn't give this much thought; but I wish I did.  When I got married I spent A LOT on my dress.  I foolishly thought it was the only important detail and I decided to get flowers from the local grocery store, slap a ribbon around it, and call it good!  Now with pinterest around it's something I see less of- but it's something I still see today.  As a photographer I have come to realize how important florals are!  They really add a lot to your images; and tie your wedding day together in a beautiful way.  From the tables to the cake and the bride's bouquet, I believe investing in flowers will make all the difference in your overall outcome; and in your pictures that you will forever look back on.

These images illustrate how two different arrangements can change your look- showing you just how much your bouquet brings to the picture!  What an impact each bouquet makes, right?  I just love the creative bouquets we see these days!  The green bouquet was created by Courtney at FoxGlove Flowers and the floral bouquet was created by Mel Haupt Floral.  Thank you to both ladies for their contributions to my collaboration with Avenia Bridal who supplied the gorgeous dress!  All of these images were shot on film.

Ally + Schaeffer Thanksgiving Point Bridals | Utah Fine Art Film Photographer

I absolutely adored working with these two for their engagements, bridals, and wedding day.  I'm excited to share images from their wedding day soon!  They were so open to all my ideas and just went with the flow!  Ally told me that choosing the perfect wedding photographer was one of the most important parts of her wedding planning.  I'm so glad she found my work (especially since I'm new to Utah and still trying to grow out here)!  I'm especially glad that throughout the process she had nothing but kind words for me and loved the outcome.  Seriously one of the sweetest couples and I'm so happy to have been able to work with them!
