Cameron & Kasey // Spokane Wedding

I am always emotionally invested in my clients...especially my brides. But this wedding killed me. From the moment I hopped on a call with this gal, I knew we clicked. I loved every statement, idea & thought she had. I was beyond excited for this day. And I was not disappointed. Every moment was filled with real and raw love & excitement. Every person genuine & supportive of this union. Every photo filled with more than just the image laid before me. This wedding was special. I can't get over how close I felt to this couple on their day & how excited I've been to share these images with them. Congratulations to the very gorgeous Cam & Kasey...you two are amazing together. Let's be friends forever.

 

David & Kayla // Spokane Wedding

At most weddings, people are happy for the bride & groom...at least every wedding I've been to. But this wedding they weren't just happy. They were invested, emotional, real, joyful, proud & downright celebratory. There was a different air about the loved ones that gathered around this beautiful couple several weeks back. They were "in" with them. I feel like I was a part of something extra special with these two. I hope to keep them not just as clients but as friends. No actually, I think I will force them to be. They are just that cool.

Also...they had snow as their reception exit. I surely can't leave that detail out.

"No words can describe our wedding day as we commited our lives to each other in front of our family & friends. We woudn't change a single moment of that day. Our biggest surprise was stepping back & realizing how dearly we are loved & supported by those around us. We are already loving what God has in store for us. Here's to the great gift of marriage" -David & Kayla

 

Brett & Heather // Coeur d'Alene Wedding

Some weddings have everything going for them from the very beginning. This one started with a basset hound named Kaylee Sue, some beautiful details and a relaxed and beautiful bride. The chances of perfection were high...and it just got better!

Loved this perfect little winter wedding. Congrats Brett & Heather

 

Jake & Mackenzie // Spokane Wedding

I've had the privilege of mentoring this young lady since she was in 6th grade...and have been praying for her future husband since then as well. Watching her fall in love with this amazing man was so surreal for me. I love them both so so much & am so grateful to have been a part of their wedding in such a special way.

 

Robby & Dani // Spokane Wedding

It's wedding season. I barely have time to breathe let alone blog.

Yet here I am staying up late, to show you even a few of these images from my beautiful cousins wedding. Because...I simply can't get enough of these two. Such sweet love. So worth no sleep.

 

Ole Håkon & Inga // Norway Wedding

What. An. Adventure. First of all...Norway?! Heck yes.

How we ended up at the location in Part I of this shoot is a craziness. We were frantically wandering the island trying to find the perfect rocks as the sun was setting. We came upon a backyard & the owner overheard us saying we needed to go get a boat (in order to get to where I wanted to be). This kind stranger says..."I have a boat...why don't you use IT"?! Um WHAT?! So off we went in a strangers boat to chase the sun, explore the ocean & find the perfect island spot to complete our shoot. We were splashed on during the journey & had no tie up for the boat...but we embraced it all & had a blast.

A big thanks to Whitney Dean (Glass Jar Photography) for second shooting this with me & to Ilse Papst for making Inga's wildflower bouquet for this shoot.

 

Before we got their wedding garb wet...we made them hike through a forest of dirt & mosquitoes. Anything for a good pic right? Part II of this shoot was deep in the woods to a set of World War II steps & a moss ridden expanse of greenery. Beautiful indeed.

 

Andrew & Alisa // Spokane Wedding

To say their wedding was special would be an understatement. This blog isn't long enough for me to share with you this couple's story or the incredible & painful journey they went on before meeting one another. So, I'll have to let the pictures do some talking. Their emotion packed wedding was one of my favorites...and not just because I'm related to the groom. It would have been even if I wasn't. I am SO beyond proud of these two, excited for their marriage & honored to have been a part of their incredible day.

Love them and their little girls to pieces. What a precious family you have created!
