To put it simply, Michael and Julianna are amazing. Their story is unique and brings with it an awesome "it was meant to be" vibe. While they met when they were kids, Julianna about 5 years old, it was later when Michael stepped out of his comfort zone and asked this cute, young adult woman to come to the races with him. Things would take off from there, eventually leading to the photos your about to see. I'm also pumped to share with you their Photo Story, as it brings so much more emotion into the day. :)

Spokane Wedding: Ryan & Stephanie

Ryan and Stephanie had an amazing approach to their wedding. Simple, beautiful, and easy going. It's odd to say a couple were easy going when it came to their wedding, as so often we get stuck on this idea that the wedding isn't about celebrating a declaration that we want to spend the rest of our lives with this person. Instead, weddings can sometimes because this thing that is all about the people that are coming to the celebration. Somehow it loses it's focus and becomes this headache and area of stress. Ryan and Stephanie seemed to brush this off and find this awesome middle ground where things would happen, and people would have a good time, but they weren't going to be too concerned about any of it.

Coeur d'Alene Engagement: Adam & Dana

I have a poster-sized picture with Adam on my kitchen wall. You see, at my wedding four years ago I had the photographer take a picture with my wife and I and all of our guests. Adam was front and center in that photo, and every time I walk into the kitchen to make a bean and cheese burrito, I see my friend. It's funny to think of where things were then and where they are now. I've shot several weddings of the people in that picture, and it makes me super excited to be shooting a wedding for the dude who so obviously had fun at my wedding four years ago. (And he caught the garter!)

Spokane Wedding: Jeff & Korissa

Jeff and Korissa love each other. The high school track coach turned college track coach and the local librarian make, on paper, for an interesting mix. But they you meet them, and you talk to them, and you realize, this is perfect. They have the same goofy personalities, love the same things, and for a lack of a better way to say it, they just fit.

One of the blessings in disguise this year was having the Fourth of July on a Friday. Because it's a national holiday, a LOT of couples avoided that whole weekend for their wedding. This means that instead of photographing someone else's big day, i got to do one of my favorite things, capture my own small days. :) This ranged from taking some firework photos, to some pictures of my son on one of our walks, to my new nephew Micah, to my wife and I's anniversary trip to Glacier. A varied and entertaining couple of days. As i've said before, taking photos outside of paid work, experimenting, trying new things, and so forth is the best way to become a great photographer. Better to experiment on your two year old son, than on someone's wedding photos they want to keep for the rest of their lives.
