Spokane Wedding Photographer / Brett and Eric

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!

Spokane Wedding Photographer / Stefanie and Paul in Newman Lake, WA

I had the privilege of photographing Alissa's little sister's wedding on Saturday. Alissa is a good friend of mine and also another local photographer! Her sister Stefanie married her long time boyfriend, Paul, in the backyard of their home in Newman Lake. Their backyard was transformed into the perfect wedding venue and it couldn't have worked out better. Shasta Hankins did all the girls' make-up, Marsells made the cake and Charley's Catering catered their dinner. Stefanie and Paul have been together for quite some time and have a beautiful family. They have three adorable kids together! I think their friends and family were happy to see them make the union they already had together a bit more official. :)

Thank you Alissa for trusting me with your sister's memories! And thank you Stefanie for being an awesome bride!
