About Me

Hi, my name is Michelle Kemp, I am a full time mother of three beautiful children (6, 9 and 1 year). As well as the wife of the most handsome, loving and supportive husband. The wee hours left over...I am releasing my artistic energy into photography!

I am an on location natural light photographer located in Pleasant Grove, UT. I eat, sleep, and breath photography. There is something about catching the sweet memories we have together...having something to look back on to remember...it makes me smile! Thanks to the encouragement of my amazing husband as well as my wonderful family and friends, I am excited to announce the beginning of Rusty Bucket Photography! This has been a life long dream of mine becoming a reality! Why the name Rusty Bucket? A rusty bucket is full of character, colorful, showing all its beauty in the life lived! This, is my passion, capturing the "rusty bucket" in all of us! So...enjoy the blog...if you like what you see...send me line!

Meet One Beautiful Family

What an awesome opportunity I had of taking my cousin's family pictures last month. I grew up running through fields with this sweet mama! The best memories were made through the adventures with my cousin. It's crazy to see she's all grown up with a family of her own. Love you cuz.

Meet Brandon...and...he's going places!

Like I told Brandon not too long into our shoot, it's not hard to see that he is going places. I was so thoroughly impressed with this boy...or rather, young man. He is so talented, doing so well in school...with his sights set high, I have no doubt in my mind he will reach his goals. Thank you Brandon for the honor of taking your pictures.
