Hello!  While I have been in Central America both for business and vacation (photos coming soon), a beautiful, intimate wedding I photographed last summer was published on Sun Valley Magazine’s Hitched Blog.  I enjoyed every moment of Kate and Blake’s intimate, family-only wedding.  My favorite quote from Kate in the article is this:  “The people and relationships are what make it special. Splurge on a great photographer and let friends and family take care of the rest.”  Ditto Kate, Ditto!

Cheatwood Photography


The afternoon with McKenzie and Ryan was INCREDIBLY fun!  We took all of their engagement photos at The River Grove Farm, where Ryan was raised.  I was amazed at how beautiful the property was surrounding the farm, and how beautiful and well kept the actual farm was.  It is also home to Brentina an Olympic dressage horse who was ridden by Ryan’s mother.  Although Brentina herself was not at the barn during our photoshoot, we did get some must-have photos in front of a swirling bronze statue of her.  The most precious animal I was able to work with, however, was McKenzie and Ryan’s lab, Hank, who gave his best smile whenever I asked about his girlfriend (; I loved spending the day with Ryan, McKenzie and Hank, and am most excitingly looking forward to their wedding this summer at the Farm!

I had a great time getting to know and photographing Heather and Graydon during their engagement session.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in September!!  Here are my favorite images from their session:



Last November I was honored to photograph Rian and Chris’ family.  Over the past few years I captured their engagement session, wedding day and now their family of three!  Rian’s Brother Kevin and wife Michelle also just welcomed a new girl to their family as well, so it was great that they could all be there together for the photoshoot.  Here are some of my favorite images from the session:


In continuing my throwback Thursday posts, here’s an engagement session from last winter that never made it on the blog!! AJ hired me to photograph their engagement photos the SAME DAY he proposed to Anna.  They are an incredibly cute couple, so cute, in fact, that Anna sent me the link to a contest minted was hosting last fall for designers and my images were selected to use for the competition!  Here are my favorite images from their photoshoot including some samples of the designs that were created using my images.

On Christmas morning in their home in Hawaii, Kyle surprised Liza with the exciting news that he had planned a trip for them to visit Sun Valley!  He also let Liza know he contacted me to photograph their engagement session while they were visiting.  When I met them on Saturday, they had only been in Sun Valley for a few hours, and I was excited to learn that it was their FIRST time here, as I had some great locations picked out for their session.  We had fun driving around town, walking in snow and exchanging stories about our dogs, and my favorite places to eat in Sun Valley.  We ended the session at A La Mode in Sun Valley for some sweet hot cocoa.  Here are my favorite images from their session:


Four girls got together and came up with a GREAT idea to share a photoshoot!  These girls have been best friends for a long time and wanted to capture their love for each other as well as get some great new profile photos.  Here are my favorite images from the shoot:


One of my resolutions for 2014 is to POST more on my blog!!  I will be dedicating Thursdays to posting photos I have taken in the past that I have never posted before!  Whether it have been an engagement session, a wedding, or family session, here we go!!

Today I decided to feature a wedding I was the second photographer for back in 2011.  I have always enjoyed working with Hillary Maybery and she has often asked why I never share any of the photos that I take while photographing weddings with her as 2nd camera.  Today, I will feature one of my favorites.  They were a beautiful, fun, outgoing couple loaded with class and style!  Here are my favorite images that I took during their wedding day:
