Palms & Lace Photo
Salt Lake City, Utah Wedding Photography By JJ & Alison Ochsenbein

Hi, We are J.J. & Alison Ochsenbein (pronounced Oxen-bine)!

We are a husband & wife photo team from Salt Lake City / Hawaii who love to shoot weddings. ​We are the proud parents of 3 wonderful and unique children, they mean the world to us and we count them as our greatest blessing.

We love being a part of your special day, meeting amazing people, capturing the moments that matter and are beyond fortunate to be able to do it together. We are HighSchool sweet-hearts, best friends and still madly in love. We were married one month after Graduating high school and have been working as a team and building our dreams together ever since. 

In 2012, life threw us a curveball, we packed our lives into 7 suitcases and left for Hawaii. We lived there full-time until 2021, at which point our family made the decision to split our time between Utah and Hawaii. This was no easy decision, but we like to think we’re getting the best of both worlds; endless beach days, warm sunsets and cold shaved ice in Hawaii and fresh mountain air, diverse scenery and limitless space for exploring in Utah!

We offer the best

We were blown away by JJ and Alison. From our initial contact they were professional, helpful, and accommodating! The shoot itself was an absolute blast -- they helped us feel comfortable and were very knowledgable. Alison even made my flower crown and let me borrow her shoes. Seriously, the nicest folks! When we received our photos (only a few days later), they were STUNNING. I cannot recommend Palms & Lace enough. Incredible photographers and incredible humans!

10/10 I am so happy. I’m a graphic designer who works with photographers all the time so I was pretty selective as I was looking around for a wedding photographer bc I wanted the very best for our wedding photos. And guess what.GUYS THIS IS IT. THEY ARE THE BEST.Their photo style is ✨stunning✨ and holy smokes they are so good at capturing details. I always get so awkward I front of the camera but wow they are good at helping you feel natural and happy and beautiful in the moment.They are so fun to work with and we had a great experience during the shoots. My husband and I are SO happy about all of the photos. They are an actual dream come true.

We absolutely love our photos! JJ has a beautiful photography style. He was easy and prompt to communicate with. I would recommend to friends and family. I look forward to many more photo opportunities with our family in the future .

JJ and Alison are warm, low-key, and happy to be there. They have a way of making the task of family pictures seem easy, effortless and fun. We left feeling like, “we’re done?” It was more of a hang out session while someone snapped a few photos. Not the stressful, awkward experience family photos can be. The experience itself was great, but the final products are the best photos we’ve gotten. Also, they got them back to us super fast.
