I usually just blog weddings but I photographed a GORGEOUS sweet 16 this summer and I just have to show y'all!! Sweet 16's are fun because they are so similar to weddings: I get to photograph a gorgeous lady, I get cake, and I get to dance the wobble. It's a win!!!
Before her sweet 16 event, we met at McKelligon Canyon and photographed some stellar portraits. The dress was beautiful, the lighting was perfect, and the scenery was amazing.
The day of her sweet 16, I met up with her while she was getting ready, just like my brides, and we had a blast all day. The venue was Grace Gardens and it was spectacular! I think my favorite part of the evening was her little thank you speech at the end of the evening. Not only did she give so much credit to her parents and brother, but she took time to recognize a friend that she had recently lost. A loss that reached out to so many people. I thought it was so sweet of her to take time out her day to honor a beautiful soul. Then she turned around and blew out the biggest birthday candles I have ever seen.
This was definitely a beautiful and fun day. I am so happy I was able to be a part of it and capture these images for her. Happy sweet 16 Summer!!!
