Strawberry Days Rodeo – Pleasant Grove Photography

A new family tradition we started this year is going to a rodeo! We went to the Pleasant Grove, Strawberry Days Rodeo.  It was awesome! We saw everything including a high flying motorcycle jumping act.  I highly recommend the rodeo and while there we grabbed some fun images.  Imagine the pictures if we were close up. We went with friends and enjoyed the “Strawberries & Cream”, which is to die for. Best part!

Enjoy the pictures!

BYU Football – Provo Sports Photography

As Spring gets closer, I love looking back at pictures I’ve taken from the previous years spring game.  These pictures are from 2014 with Taysom Hill and Christen Stewart preparing for the season as the 1&2 QB’s. The angle has harsh sunlight but I still had fun getting a few images.

Tips & Tricks – Provo Sports Photography

I love reading photography magazines and learning new things.  Today I was looking back at an old Popular Photography magazine from February of 2011, and found an article called “Fast Action”.  It is about The favorite lenses of sports photographer, Gabe Rogel. He shoots with Canon lenses like us.

His favorites are:

– Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM (This is his workhorse)

– Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye (ultra wide angle)

– Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM (go to for zoom)

We have and love the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM and we absolutely love it.  It is expensive but it does so much.  I love it for sports photography, family photography, portraits, etc.  If you can afford it and if you don’t mind some extra weight, this lens is awesome! Below are a few pictures we took with this lens.

Jimmer Jam Camp 2014 – Provo Sports Photography

Last week we had the great opportunity to be the official photographers for Jimmer Jam Camp 2014 here in Provo, Utah at the Provo Rec Center.  The Fredette Family Foundation put on the event.  It was a wonderful experience for all of the boys and girls that participated.  They learned basketball skills, then played in a 3 on 3 tournament and also had the opportunity to meet Jimmer Fredette, Mayor John Curtis, BYU Basketball coach, Dave Rose and others.

Jimmer, his family and all those in the foundation were wonderful people and great to work with.  We appreciate them reaching out to us.

You can find Jimmer’s team at:
