Bride and groom at sunset in their Bend Wedding.

Destination Photographer: Scott & Kendra's Bend Wedding

Scott and Kendra are two people with magnetic personalities. They are people who are just fun to be around, to talk to, to hang out with. Their engagement photos last year were a highlight for me all year, and their wedding this year will be the same. The more I learned about each of them, the more I learned about what they do, and how they live, and who they are, the more I became impressed. These two are amazing people, and go SO well together. It is my privilege to be able to share these wedding photos with you, and I'm sorry I'm not sorry I left so many sunset ones in there, I couldn't choose.

Spokane Wedding Photographer: Joe & Stephanie's Engagement

He smiled at her. He had told himself that he would smile at 5 people a day until it would turn into something. In this case, she smiled back. Does it matter that this was all online? Not really. In fact, it adds a cool perspective to their story. Joe and Stephanie started to talked (on E-Harmony), first answering questions, then doing some free form questions. For both of them, they had been burned a lot in dating, and this seemed like a fairly safe way to start. It was "heck, why not?" But it didn't stay that way for long, and soon Stephanie gave Joe her number, so they could talk outside of the app.

Spokane Photographer: Patrick & Amy's Coeur d'Alene Wedding

Patrick and Amy had a wedding day they didn't expect. In fact, the ceremony - and the reception - happened in a different location than they both expected, and the weather was not quite what they expected either. it rained, it was windy, and it was beautiful. I loved the way the wind blew Amy's incredible dress, and the soft light the clouds provided. it proved to be an amazing day, and I'm so pumped I get to share these wedding photos with you.

Spokane Photographer: Josh & Zaira's Coeur d'Alene Engagement

You should take the time and check out their Photo Story!

Josh and Zaira have a pretty cool story. They met at the Fairchild Air Force Base here in Spokane, but never really talked. I may be underselling it, actually, because they never talked. Zaira didn't know Josh's name, he was just the "tall firefighter new guy". Then she left, then he left, and it would be about a year later they would run into each other again. They, of course, had mutual friends, and slowly would start running into each other.

Bride and groom at their Coeur d'Alene Resort wedding near Spokane Washington, at sunset, walking out by the lake.

Coeur d'Alene Photographer: Dan & Kim's Resort Wedding

Dan and Kim's wedding was beautiful. From the little details, like the shirt Kim wore that morning that said "wifey" on it, with her wedding date on the back, or the books that were a part of each of the center pieces, to the bigger things, like the reaction from her dad and brother when they saw her for the first time, or the cake cutting that was one of the funniest/best moments I've ever seen when it comes to cake cutting.
