A Utah Valley Bride

When I met photographers Kenneth and MaryLyn Linge in 2001, they were working out of their house and we were working out of ours. We met in their living room office soon after they moved to Orem from Norway, and we chatted about Utah Valley Bride Magazine — which was dancing around in my head but hadn’t yet seen the light of paper.We quickly recognized the quality of their work, and our first cover of Utah Valley Bride Magazine featured their photo of bride Leanne Freedman (wife of Downeast Outfitters owner). Since that 2002 cover (which is enlarged and displayed inside our lobby), we’ve done photo shoots together for Utah Valley Bride, Utah Valley Magazine and BusinessQ Magazine. And we’ve developed a picture-perfect friendship along the way. But last night, the cameras were turned on the Linges as their oldest daughter, Lindsey, married Benjamin Braithwaite. Beautiful Lindsey interned with us as a high schooler in 2005 and wowed us with her editing skills. We also put Lindsey to work last year blowing papers around and testing lights for the Audra McDonald photo shoot for our July/August cover feature for Utah Valley Magazine.
After 10 years of producing Utah Valley Bride Magazine, we still love seeing beautiful brides. Congratulations, Lindsey! Thanks for being you and for raising such great parents.
