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 the Gurnsey Family

You would have never guessed it was freezing cold the day we decided to do pictures because the sweet Gurnsey family were so awesome at pretending they were on a hot sunny beach ;) But my goodness...it was bitter cold outside! I absolutely LOVED doing pictures with them...they were so photogenic and had SO much personality!!! Thank you Gurnseys...I loved every minute of it!

Meet The W Family!

 One of my favorite things about this job is the people! I LOVE getting to know families that I never would have known otherwise. Like this family. The W family contacted me a few years back to do family pictures for them! I had an absolute ball with them...and came away with 6 new friends! So having the opportunity to photograph them again was, of course, a blast!!!

This time I was accompanied by Jeff Bratt who shot a a family video during the shoot. I am so impressed at his crazy awesome talent!
