Superheroes and a Whole Lot o' Color

I started out this past weekend totally bummed because the weather messed up a shoot on Friday that I was over the moon excited for and it looked like Saturday was going to be iffy as well. I woke up Saturday and headed for Spanish Fork hoping for the best and was rewarded for my optimism by a smiling universe that proceeded to grant me a truly spectacular day.

First stop the Utah Festival of Colors. I have been wanting to go to this for ages but have never made it before. It is absolutely delightful. My friend Josh and I made it for the 1 p.m. color throwing. I decided to stay up on the balcony because I wanted a shot from above of the colors being thrown in the air. I only took my little point and shoot camera. This year was for scouting, I'll probably take my back-up DSLR next year. If you haven't been you need to go. It is so much fun!
p.s. wear old clothes :)

Josh's head was a total chalk magnet. People loved throwing color at him, it was hysterical.
As we were walking back to the car we kept getting the funniest looks, it took a bit to realize everyone was staring at his head.

Next up was the ProvoCreative Superhero shoot. It was cloudy and cold but oh so fun. Here are just a couple of my favorite shots from the day.

I love hangin' out with fellow photogs. It's so fun to have days like this where you just shoot to play and get the creative juices flowing.

By the time I got home I was so exhausted I could barely move but it was that fantastic good kind of tired. Such a great day!! :)


  1. I've been meaning to ask you about your color profile pic I saw on fb. This looks like an amazing activity - I've never heard of it but would kill to go, how fun. Love the superhero shots as well. The laughing bomb guy is my favorite!!!

  2. Hi Mandie,
    You are an amazing photographer! I love looking at your blog. I am still in awe of Alex and Christophers wedding pictures. In fact, I am Christophers Mom and am in need of your e-mail address so I can place an order.
    Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us!

  3. Thanks so much Kathrine :) My email is I'm messaging Alex right now to make sure you get both my email and phone number, you are most welcome to call me anytime if that's easier for you.

    Mallary, thak you! It was so much fun. :)

    Leah, if you are ever here during the festival you have to go, you would love it!
