Our Wanderful Reviews

We love our clients and they seem to love us back! But don’t take our word or it.

Had a great experience with Wanderlight- we were definitely awkward about having our pictures taken and being in front of the camera, but Emily was awesome at making us feel comfortable and laugh! The pictures turned out amazing and we couldn't be happier!

I can't recommend Wanderlight enough for wedding photography. Their website is designed so well, that we were able to review all the photographers and get a quote on our own. James the owner was super quick to respond with answers for all of our questions.We had Nate as our photographer, he was really amazing and very easy to work with. We had a lot of outdoor shots we really wanted to get and he did an amazing job of making sure we hit all the spots we wanted to. He did a great job of capturing the ceremony and reception. We loved almost all the photos he took, it's been really hard to decide which ones to print out.10 out of 10, I would choose Wanderlight again.

We were so glad to have come across Wanderlight for our wedding photos. The experience was easy and professional throughout. Emily was creative, personable, and very fun to work with. Thanks for putting time into knowing what photos / vibe we wanted on the big day. Paul has an artistic eye and is a great guy, and even helped out with a last minute hiccup before the wedding. Both photographers met us at locations separate from the venue.. they were on time and followed through with exactly what was promised. Photos are coming out beautifully. Couldn't have asked for better, thanks again!!

Emily with Wanderlight Photo was the best wedding photographer I could have ever asked for! She surpassed all of my expectations and I was really impressed with her skills!!! She kept the flow of things going and didn’t miss a shot in my list. Most importantly she was so kind to me and she immediately felt like a friend and like someone I could trust. We had fun doing our photos and Emily fully embraced our idea to use the corn maze for our photos and she elevated the photos beyond anything I imagined! She captured us skipping and running through the corn maze and I will treasure those photos and memories forever! Thank you so much to Emily and Wanderlight Photo!!

Emily is an absolutely incredible photographer. Her detailed pre-wedding planning ensured that we took all of the photos that meant the most to us on the day. She was so involved and so helpful in shepherding us through our timeline, before and after the ceremony, that our wedding day was seamless and fun. She took the time to get to know us and put so much thought and care into the moments she captured. Our wedding day was a fairy tale and looking at the photos Emily took brings back all of the magic and love!

The Best Utah Wedding Photographers

Wanderlight Weddings was created to make your search for the perfect Utah wedding photographer easy for couples. Whether you are getting married downtown, traveling to the red rocks of Utah’s many national parks or in the mountains, Wanderlight Weddings guarantees that you have exactly the right Utah wedding photographer for your wedding celebration.  You can get to know our Utah photographers with biography videos and beautiful portfolios.  Booking the photographer of your choice with our simple  online booking process has never been easier. Start by entering your wedding date, select your photographer after watching their biography video and checking out their portfolio, select the package that works best for you from three to nine hours, then type in the details of your wedding day and use your credit card to pay your booking fee and you will be all set. Your photographer will reach out to you very soon to hear about your plans and get to know you better.

McCory James started Wanderlight in 2019 to bring high-quality photography to couples at a reasonable price.  McCory, was a photographer for 18 years and owns Elevate Photography, which operates in Colorado.  Elevate has been a part of the wedding community for over 20 years and we used all of the experience we gained through Elevate to create Wanderlight Weddings. Our network of Utah photographers allow us to offer Wanderlight clients experienced professionals who know how to get the best photos at local venues. Our photographers have shot at a variety of Utah locations, including venues like Millennial Falls Event Center, Millcreek Inn, White Willow Reception Center, The Azalea, Eldredge Manor, Log Haven Restaurant, This is The Place Heritage Park, Aspen Landing, Garden Near the Green, Highland Gardens, Cottage Charm, Bella Vista & The Foundry.

Having a team of photographers is a huge benefit for all of our couples.  One of the big advantages is feeding off each other’s creativity and we share ideas all the time that keep all of our Utah photographers knowledgeable about what is happening in the world of wedding photography.  Location ideas and experiences at various venues are shared between our Utah wedding photographers so that each photographer is able to do their best work.  Sometimes a photographer may find a great spot that nobody else has used with mountains in the background or near a downtown venue or a local street that makes a great place for photos and then the photographer will share that with the  team allowing us to take our next wedding couple there and get incredible Utah wedding photos.  Our team of wedding photographers also means that we always have a group of people we can rely on when we need a replacement photographer when things don’t go according to plan. We want you to have peace of mind that we will always have a quality Utah photographer at your wedding and that we will always provide the highest quality photographs that we can.

We are so happy that we can bring our photography services to Utah and offer high-quality and experienced wedding photographers in the state.   Our editing and processes are always consistent so we are able to provide high-quality photography to our clients every time. Also, our commitment to responding quickly and providing great customer service, and having an experienced staff at our headquarters means that you can always count on us throughout the process of your photography. Being a company that you can trust is very important to us and we will do everything we can to help you as you get ready for your Utah wedding. As you build your photography package everything is a la carte so you can build the perfect package for you that gives you exactly what you need. Every couple books a lead wedding photographer for the amount of time they need and then they can add a second photographer, engagement photos, or more time if you need it.

After your wedding, we post your photos online to a website with easy online ordering that allows you to order prints, albums, canvases, holiday cards, and many more products. We always want our clients to use their photos and products and prints from your wedding day also are perfect gifts for family and friends who helped make your day something you will always remember. We look forward to photographing your Utah wedding and capturing memories that you will have forever.
