Bear Lake Destination Wedding Photography bio picture
  • Welcome!

    I'm Lauriann Wakefield and I believe that weddings are a social celebration of a very sacred commitment, a day filled with beauty and magic. I feel honored to participate in every wedding I photograph. I'm based in Bear Lake along the Utah/Idaho borders and am available for travel. As an artist, I believe my job is to capture that magic and emotion in a most authentic way.

Should we plan pictures around good lighting?

Good lighting is everything. If there is one thing to plan your day around, it would be that. Especially consider this when planning your wedding portraits. If you want to receive images that truly highlight how special those moments were, I strongly suggest having your ceremony during the last couple hours of light. I truly believe you will be happier with the final result.
If that’s not an option, full shade is the next best thing. If possible, have your pictures in a fully shaded area with no dappled light.

This wedding took place right before sunset.  It was a beautiful calm evening and we couldn’t of had better lighting.  After the ceremony, and right as the sun was dipping behind the hills, I had the wedding couple come together and snuggle in the setting light.  Perfection.
