Foxwood House Wedding: Daniel & Amber

Just north of Spokane, in Newport Washington, there is a beautiful house called the Foxwood House. It has tons of character inside and outside, from a beautiful yard, to lots of props, to beautiful forest surrounding the property. It was my first time photographing a wedding up at the Foxwood house, but I loved every part of it. Daniel and Amber were so easy to work with, and each aspect of their wedding was a blessing. From the perfect weather, to their beautiful first look, each moment up there was a lot of fun. It is a privilege for me to be able to share this wedding with everyone.

Beautiful Mountaintop Engagement: Scott & Kendra

He swiped right, and so did she. In this way, Scott and Kendra met - using an app called Tinder. The thing is, when they both swiped right they got "matched" but they never talked. They just moved on. No message was sent, no emoji. Eventually they would swipe right again - and get matched again. Except even then, they never talked. This happened several times, but finally after about the 4th time Scott decided he would message her (she was beautiful after all).

Spokane Family Photos: Doug & Julie

Doug and Julie are a pretty amazing couple, and when you include their amazing, beautiful dog you end up with a pretty awesome family. Family photos are something I always love to do, in so many ways it is the end result of a wedding. I photograph so many weddings, which is, in a way, the beginning of any family. So often that is when a couple starts to set apart their own traditions, their own way of doing things. So when I have the opportunity to take family photos, it's a beautiful thing to see what came from such a beautiful day. In Doug and Julie's world, that means an incredible dog, in a pretty awesome city, Spokane, and one small but beautiful family.

Beautiful Backyard Wedding: Daniel & Katey

Daniel and Katey are amazing and their wedding day reflected that. From the beautiful backyard wedding ceremony up in Dalton Gardens, to their unique and emotional reveal, to the party they had that went late into the night in Post Falls, each moment was filled with emotion, and joy, and a lot of great people. We not only enjoyed Daniel and Katey's company, but everyone in the wedding party and the guests that we met. They were fun, patient, and understanding. I'm excited to be the one who can share these images, these memories, these wedding photos, with you and the many people these two will meet in the years to come.

Family Photography: The Emerys 

The Emery family is an excellent one. I've known some of them for long time (since 8th grade) and I've sat with some for lunch in college. I've gone to prom with one of them. I've photographed one of their families, and I've enjoyed their company. I've gone to bachelor parties and looked for a person named Dave. But I had never met the people that started such an excellent family, nor have I had the privilege of meeting all of their kids.
