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!

The Cardons...Friends

From Real Life
OK...so I have to say how excited I was when Lu...or Luana emailed me about family pictures! I grew up with Luana and her sisters...and I smile on those memories...as cheesy as it sounds. Being the new kid in young women's...and a little goofy...I didn't know anyone in the neighborhood...she and her sisters kinda took me under their wing...filled my days with with lots of laughs...and like a said...great memories! It's kinda crazy to see her as a mom and wife...but great! Aren't they a beautiful family!!! Their gorgeous little boy not only melts you with his big grin...but can make some of the best faces I've ever seen!!!
