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!

McKay...High School Senior!

I've had the opportunity to work with this boy and his family for the past several years...it's been so much fun to see him grow! I can't believe he's a graduating senior this year!!! What a handsome, talented boy...you'll do great things McKay!

Meet Paisley...

I so enjoyed this little girl. She's been walking since she was 9 months old...so you can imagine...as a 1 year old she was quite the mover...we chased her all over the block...but so worth it! Beautiful little girl!

A Few More of Tiesha & Trey

I had so much fun with these two! Beautiful day, beautiful couple inside and out...what more could you ask for! I can't wait for the big wedding day!!!

Elder Wilcock...

Love this boy...love his family! What wonders he'll do on his mission to South Africa!

Meet Baby Roi...

I don't typically do newborns...especially indoor. But what a fun change of pace!
