Lauren and Greg are our next door neighbors and good friends. We couldn’t have picked better next door neighbors, and we got to know them quickly thanks to our dogs – Sage and their dog Chewey are best friends. Leah and I have had many impromptu dinners together with Lauren and Greg due to how close our 191Xs era bungalows are. If Greg has a tasty leg of lamb on the grill, I can smell it from my front porch. We’ve got each other’s keys in case either of us run out of toilet paper or eggs. I don’t think we would know them as well if we were living in the type of houses that are being built today.
Lauren and Greg needed an announcement picture so I offered to do one for them if they would be patient enough while I fiddled with some new lighting setups. I would much rather find good light than make it myself but I am always trying to add options. We took these pictures half way up Little Cottonwood Canyon at dusk. Lauren and Greg are getting married this September. I’m totally bummed that I won’t be around for their wedding, because I have another one to photograph!
The picture below is Lauren and Greg and another friend Rick skinning up the ridge to Silver Fork Bowl, in between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. This was taken on one of the rare sunny days during our winter long snowstorm. I think we left the house at about 10 AM that morning – life is tough in Salt Lake City!
