Bonners Ferry Photographer / Francis and Gregg Engagement

A couple weeks ago I went up to Bonners Ferry, Idaho to photograph this engagement session. It's the same location that their wedding will be held in the midst of winter and it happens to be their property. WOW! Beautiful! We went down to the water where they have a rocky beach area that has the trains and tunnel directly across and trekked up to the highest view point. Such a gorgeous place they live. Gregg's grandpa works up there every day and I can see why. We also got to include their fur baby, Lily!



Spokane Engagement Photographer / Blair and Jeremy at Finch Arboretum

Loved this snowy (and cold) engagement session last weekend! Blair and Jeremy are getting married this fall... sounds far away since we still need to get through this snow, spring and summer, but it'll be here before we know it. I photographed Blair's sister's wedding several years ago. It's always fun to work with the same family again!

Spokane Wedding Photographer / Melanie and JW

Since I'm posting Melanie and JW's wedding photos from this weekend I realized I have been so bad on my blog that I never even posted their engagement session last fall!!! So here is one of those at least... spokane engagement photoI have been better at posting 'most' recent sessions on my facebook page, but as summer comes there will be more weddings on the blog as well!

So "3-2-1 blast off" as they say for their 3/21 wedding, love that! This couple truly has a lot to look forward to in building their lives together and it's obvious they are very excited for it. It was fun hanging out with them and their family and friends all day. Turned out several of their friends are my friends as well, so it was extra fun running into people.

As you can see Melanie was a beautiful bride! Bouquet/flowers gorgeous by Esther with Special Touch. The ceremony was at Summit Church, with the reception at The Lincoln Center, which was decorated amazingly! The day couldn't have gone any better... Melanie did an amazing job planning!!! :) Congrats to you both! I am so happy for you guys to start a new chapter of your lives together!

Spokane Engagement Photographer / Caitlyn and Matt

Caitlyn and Matt got engaged in October and booked their session in the perfect amount of time to snag some fall colors! We did these in early November at Finch Arboretum and downtown Spokane. We started off with enough rain to require an umbrella, but ended up being a great day! They were naturals with the camera, looking forward to their wedding this summer!

Priest Lake Engagement Photographer / Melissa and David

It was so fun incorporating a location that means so much and where this girl grew up. Priest Lake is a place Melissa's family gathers in the summer and spends a lot of time on their boats. I always encourage my clients to think of a place or a thing that is important to them and add that into their session, making it that much more memorable. They even brought coffee cups from their one and only favorite coffee stand on the south hill, Cool Beans! THAT is customer loyalty! David is also a photographer, for Kalispel Tribe of Indians, and I'm always extra honored to be chosen to capture another photographer's wedding! Looking forward to their wedding in 2014. priest lake beach engagement photos blog03 blog04priest lake boat engagement

Spokane Engagement Photographer / Jessica and Cole in Downtown Spokane

Jessica and Cole came over from Seattle to work on some wedding details and we were able to squeeze in their engagement session (and just in time before I had baby!). There were so many good ones of these two, it was hard to narrow any down.

Spokane Engagement Photographer / Megan and Alex at Finch Arboretum and Downtown

Cute couple - Megan and Alex! And small world... Megan grew up in the same city as me in Anchorage, AK and moved to the same city as I did to go to school, Spokane. Now she lives in the same town I was born in, Lewiston, ID. I love how small this world can be! Looking forward to their wedding in Spokane next August!

Coeur d'Alene Engagement Photographer / Tania and Jon

I had so much fun getting to know Tania and Jon while seeing some sunshine. After rescheduling because of rain, wind and cold twice we finally enjoyed one of the first warm days of the year! Walking around Coeur d'Alene for the first time this year really made me realize summer is on it's way. Tania and Jon are getting married in just 7 short weeks!

Spokane Bridal Festival / Engagement Session Winner

One of my sessions this weekend was the lucky drawing winner, Cheyenne, from January's Spokane Bridal Fair. I loved that Cheyenne and James came with a theme. As you can see, I just had to feature this shoot on the blog! This is sure to get the creative juices flowing for anyone looking for ideas for their own sessions... the options are endless, have fun with it!
