Coeur d'Alene Photographer: Marcus & Lauren's Engagement

A couple years ago Marcus and his friends would always go on a trip up to Priest Lake. They were all really close, so the times were fun, natural, filled with a ton of inside jokes and good moments. I say always, except that didn't always happen. About 3 years ago some of his friends couldn't make it, so the ones that could make it invited some of their co-workers to come along.

They met at Red Robin. Aimee was visiting from Connecticut and her friend took her to hang with with his friends. Jamo was there, and he remembers her. He remembers that pretty girl, with the curly hair.

Coeur d'Alene Photographer: Dan & Kim's Engagement

Math class. It isn't known to pull people together, but in Dan and Kim's case, that's exactly what happened. Dan and Kim were both athletes, but it wasn't until Kim's senior year of high school (Dan's junior year) that they actually shared a class together. They knew who each other were, but they hadn't really spent any time together. It didn't take long though, and these two were hooked.

Coeur d'Alene Photographer: Hayden & Elaines Resort Wedding

Hayden and Elaine had a beautiful wedding, with some amazing moments. I think of the time Elaine had her mother help her get her dress on, and they started to cry. I think of their first look, when Elaine came up behind Hayden with so much excitement she not only forgot to wait for me to get into position, but Hayden forgot to turn the right way - they were just too excited. I think of how they looked at each other during portraits, or danced together in their reception. It was beautiful - every part of it. These two are filled with an awesome joy, and capturing that, capturing that excitement and love is something I absolutely love to do. So here is Hayden and Elaines Coeur d'Alene Resort wedding, as beautiful as it was.

Coeur d'Alene Photographers: Robbie & Nicole's Engagement

Robbie and Nicole are two amazing people. They are kind, genuine, and boy do they love each other. Their engagement, and wedding, have an interesting story behind them, one I won't actually repeat here because of the sensitive nature of it. For me though, I've been in contact with Nicole for months, and as different troubles arose I was always so happy that I could be there to help - sometimes that's all you can do. The other thing I was so happy I could do is take photos of them, in the time of their life when they are willing to say "I love you now, and I'll love you forever".
