My friend's baby sister got married last weekend! I photographed her senior pictures when I was just getting my business started and now it's her wedding. She also is an amazing makeup artist and she went all the way to the Oregon Coast to do my wedding makeup 10 years ago! So happy for her to have her special day and for them to start this new chapter in life. They tied the knot on the weekend of their 8 year anniversary on her uncle's property (which he'd love to do more weddings there if anyone is looking for a place... not far from downtown Spokane off of Highway 195 - let me know!). When Brett first told me she was getting married she said she wanted a simple wooded late evening wedding. It was perfect! From her dad playing his guitar walking her down the aisle to the tent set up in the backyard for their overnight stay, it was exactly what they wanted. Although they didn't need toasts and cake cutting, these traditions still happened. The cupcake surprise from Brett's sister was too funny. 💩 just got real! 😂 But seriously isn't she GORGEOUS!!!! Congratulations Brett and Eric!
Zerina and Joel were married at Commellini Estate on July 8th. A destination wedding for most being that neither of them are from Spokane, but they are attending college nearby. It was a perfect wedding and location for their close friends and family to enjoy the day with them and celebrate. Joel surprised Zerina with his guitar and song at the reception! I think it is the summer of serenading considering this was the 2nd weekend in a row I've seen this! What a special gift for Zerina. It was also so fun to hear the Bosnian music and dancing. The dance floor was nonstop, and it was great to see everyone having such a good time singing along. I don't think Zerina's grandmas sat down! Commellini's always does such a good job coordinating their events and putting the couple's needs first.
Special mentions: cake made by Zerina's friend; knitted flower centerpieces handmade by Zerina!
I'm not sure how to explain this wedding other than AHH-MAZING! Duska and Steve got married on their 5th anniversary, June 30th. The last 5 years together proved to show that they are perfect for each other. Not only them, but their daughters are so happy and now forever sisters. ❤️ Being friends with them means we've seen this transpire and couldn't be more happy for them! They were married at St. Blanche Catholic Church, which happens to be next to their home away from home, their cabin. Their reception was held at Priest Lake Golf Course. It was so fun and relaxed. The best part was Steve serenading his bride in front of everyone and it truly touched everyone that saw it. You'll have to watch the video slideshow below to get a glimpse of it. 😉 Lastly, a friend surprised them with fireworks to end the night. It couldn't get any better than this. Steve and Duska - I hope the day was everything you dreamed it would be, and more! Congrats!!!
Extra mentions: Make-up: MUAh, Cake: Madeleine's Cafe, Flowers: Amazing friend Jodie, Coordinator: Amazing friend Hilary
Mallory and Dillon were married at The Willows in Coeur d'Alene, ID on June 16th. What a great country setting for them. There was definitely rain in the forecast, so tents were set up and ready for it! Luckily most of the rain came while they got ready, with just a few showers during photos. The rest of the evening the weather was perfect for the ceremony and reception! The details put into this wedding were definitely noticeable. The thought of everything down to their personalized yard games. Most importantly these two didn't stop smiling ALL DAY. They truly couldn't help it and enjoyed every bit of their day. I love being a part of happy days like this! Congrats Mallory and Dillon, enjoy the honeymoon!
*Special thank you to Alissa Floyd for second shooting this wedding with me! If anyone every wants more than 1 photographer to cover their event I always give the option to add on an extra photographer.*
Andrea and Marcus had a beautiful ceremony in Banff, but couldn't leave it without a party in Spokane to celebrate with family and friends! The McGinnity Room downtown was the perfect location for it. Such a simple and fun get together with everyone that has been a part of their lives. I wouldn't have missed it even if you didn't want me to be the photo girl! Congrats you two!
Hannah's softball photos at Mt. Spokane were gorgeous! Showed her in her element. ⚾️
Check out previous post with her other images too!
Some fun school football photos to add to Connor's senior session!
We got Desi's sessions done between indoor ones while we had smoke in the air to fitting in some more outside ones before yearbook photos were due (tomorrow)! We got some great variety in locations for sure. Such a blast working with my friend's daughter, she is such a fun girl with a great personality!! Sadly Desi lost her dad earlier this year, check out the last photo with his hat.
Love my cousin's kids! They all just loved having their photos taken. Since these were taken a couple weeks ago I totally just added extra fall into the look of some of these. 🍁 Yes, I can do that in post processing! 😊 And this is a perfect example of what you can choose within a Mini Session with your favorite 5 images... 1 of each kid, kids alone and whole family. These would look great on the wall together. 💛
This family finally got professional photos taken, thanks to a sweet gift from her coworkers last Christmas! Look at those cute kids, they did so great!
Myah is 6 months! She is soooo cute!!! 😍
Tara and Adam are getting married in just 1.5 weeks!!! Here is their cute engagement session downtown!
This family won't stop growing (quickly) and I love it! Baby brother is here and big sisters LOVE him. 💙 He's going to add so much fun to their lives... #3 we call them the game changer around here. Maybe parents of 3 littles would only understand?! 😂
This sweet girl is already 6 months old, or actually 7 months since we took these awhile ago! Had to share her and her cute family. 💕
Ty did awesome for his senior photos. He could rock a smile along with a serious look, which is hard to do for most! We found some great simple areas around Manito for him and got a day that the smoke in the air was finally dissipating, but the lighting was perfect!
Baby girl is due any day! Looking forward to her arrival and newborn session. We took these a whole month ago when the weather was warm, at Finch Arboretum. They brought some cute props! 💝
We got some great shots for Owen downtown and at his high school baseball field... his home away from home! 😉
I just took Sydney's sister's senior photos last summer and now it is already her turn! I found a good spot for her graffiti request and then we went to Maribou Park. Such a beautiful and smart girl that was so easy going to work with, and has a love for photography herself!
Such a fun evening photographing Hannah! Her mom found the perfect location at a private residence that had it all. The only thing we wished it didn't have was the wind that day, but luckily it calmed down for us eventually. I love her photos....
Lindsay and Scott were married on August 12, 2017 on the Pend Oreille River in Priest River, Idaho. In the same place they got engaged even, which happens to be Lindsay's grandparent's home. It was the perfect setting! They had close family and friends there to celebrate and it was so fun and relaxed. These two were so excited! ❤️ Lindsay is a photographer as well, so I'm always honored to be chosen to capture a big day for someone that knows my job too well.
