Second That Emotion

  PHOTO BY Photography By McKenzie (

WHAT TO LOVE How can you not want to fall in love all over again after seeing this photo? (With the same person, obvs.) We have an office of giddy editors saying you just can't.

WHAT TO LEARN The depth perception of the photo matches its depth of emotion. And the bright clothing matches the couple's bright future. Think about the emotion you want to convey in your photos by purposefully pondering your location and wardrobe. Then find an expert photographer to make it happen in a snap.

Attn: Local Wedding Vendors

Do you know Hilary, owner of the divine wedding dress shop Alta Moda Bridal? Please tell us you do. Everything she touches turns to gorgeous gold.

And she's tapped into something new. Hilary and her husband, Justin, have created WedSmith — an annual conference designed to "Forge a better business, craft better weddings." Anyone and everyone in Utah's bridal industry will be there. And you should be, too. 

There will be a dream team of speakers — including the likes of Anne Barge, David Perry and Sylvia Weinstock — and the chance to mingle with local (hear that, local!) vendors that you need to meet and greet.

It's a wedding gift, really.

Here's the deets ...
