Log HavenLog Haven Wedding – Justin & HaileySalt Lake City, Utah


Justin & Hailey’s Log Haven Wedding was an absolute dream. It was styled to perfection and Log Haven was an incredible backdrop.

I love how genuine Hailey and Justin are, their first look moment was so sweet, Justin had the best reaction!

From the Bride:

I always envisioned my wedding as elegant with lots of delicate details. I loved the simplicity of having a mostly neutral/natural color scheme –

champagne, sage, grey and ivory. I had always wanted to get married outdoors because nature can serve as a beautiful setting all on its own.

My favorite detail from the wedding was my great-grandmother’s necklace that I wore.

It was from the 1920’s and went perfectly with my vintage-style dress! I wanted everything to be simple, yet beautiful.

My favorite moment was walking down the aisle seeing Justin’s face. It’s cliche to say, but in that moment,

everything else faded away, and it was just us, celebrating our love for each other.

One piece of advice I’d give to other brides would be to not get so caught up with stressing about every little detail,

and don’t be afraid to ask for help! You don’t have to do all the planning alone.

And if you feel overwhelmed, take a step back and remember the reason you’re planning this big event: to celebrate your love.


So thrilled to see this Log Haven wedding featured on Utah Valley Bride!

Phoenix, ArizonaChallis & MitchellEngagements

Challis & Mitchell are so sweet (and how cool are their names??) Weather kept us from our original plan for their engagement shoot but this spot in Superior, Arizona ended up being perfect. I love how the rich backdrop fits perfectly with their wardrobe choices. I always love when couples go dressy for engagement photos, it captures so beautifully. I can’t wait for their Arizona wedding at The Paseo Venue!

I had the best time second shooting Michelle & Brandon’s gorgeous wedding at The Arizona Biltmore with my friends Mike & Brit from Brushfire Photography. The details were styled to perfection by Victoria Canada Weddings & Events and the florals by Petal Pushers offered incredible accents. I love the unique architecture at the Biltmore. It juxtaposes beautifully with soft, romantic wedding details to create a timeless wedding style.

Arizona Wedding PhotographerLeah & David JohnChateau De Vie


Leah & David John opted to do a bridal session after their wedding day, in order to keep with the tradition of seeing each other for the first time as Leah walked down the aisle, but still experience an intimate, stress-free bridal session. Chateau de Vie in Phoenix, Arizona was the perfect backdrop with it’s elegant structure and beautiful, sprawling grounds. Sage and Stem created a rich, moody ambience with luscious florals and greenery contrasted with black and gold accents and exquisite glassware. After photographing this post-wedding bridal session I would highly recommend it to any of my couples. Leah & David John were able to return to their wedding venue & relive moments of their wedding day, while having their natural, unique love captured in an intimate setting. We are also honored to have had this shoot featured on Wedding Sparrow, one of my favorite fine art wedding blogs!

Vanessa & Chris did a midweek road trip from Las Vegas down to Arizona for their engagement session! Their wedding is in Las Vegas in November at the Springs Preserve and I could not be more excited, they are absolutely stunning & a blast to photograph.  I love seeing the incredible outfits my couples put together, Vanessa’s feminine pink top popped against the neutral, organic backdrop and I love classic black formal outfits.  One of my favorite aspects of photographing weddings is shooting engagement sessions. It’s an opportunity to really get to know a couple, watch them interact, and learn more about their unique love story. Can’t wait for November!Mary Claire Photography-8Mary Claire Photography-30Mary Claire Photography-6Mary Claire Photography-20Mary Claire Photography-23Mary Claire Photography-26Mary Claire Photography-9Mary Claire Photography-10Mary Claire Photography-11Mary Claire Photography-3Mary Claire Photography-24Mary Claire Photography-17Mary Claire Photography-32Mary Claire Photography-31Mary Claire Photography-14Mary Claire Photography-18Mary Claire Photography-29Mary Claire Photography-16Mary Claire Photography-15Mary Claire Photography-35Mary Claire PhotographyMary Claire Photography-25Mary Claire Photography-19Mary Claire Photography-2Mary Claire Photography-33Mary Claire Photography-12Mary Claire Photography-13Mary Claire Photography-27Mary Claire Photography-28Mary Claire Photography-5
