Coeur d'Alene Photographer: Hayden & Elaine's Wedding

Hayden and Elaine are amazing people. The way they smile, interact and love on those around them. I could see it when Elaine's mom was helping her into her dress, as they both tried not to cry. I could see it in Hayden and Elaine's reveal, when neither of them followed the instructions I so hoped they would follow (because they were SO darn excited). I could see it in their interaction's with their friends. These two people are amazing, and their wedding on Coeur d'Alene lake was on par with that. It had great moments and people, all I could ever ask for from a wedding. Even though they had other amazing things (florist, Dj, venue, wedding coordinator) they were all people that complimented the couple. I am so privileged to be able to share these wedding photos, these memories, these people, with you.

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".

Coeur d'Alene Engagement Photographer: Hayden & Elaine

Elaine was the cute girl the floor above him. For the first couple weeks of college, Hayden would wonder up there to hang out with the people on the floor above - he seemed to get along with them a little better. Elaine was this very cute girl that was part of that group, and Hayden decided he wanted to pursue her right away.

Coeur d'Alene Wedding Photographer: David & Katelyn's Coeur d'Alene Resort Wedding

David and Katelyn had an incredible wedding. Set out on Lake Coeur d'Alene at the Hagadone Event Center, this incredible bride and groom had a beautiful day - not too hot, not too cold. I had so much fun getting to know them, their family, and all the friends they surround themselves with. It was also cool for me to see we had mutual friends, even if we were unaware until that very day. These two are sweet, caring, and absolutely love each other. Katelyn is a gorgeous bride, as you can see, and David is a great compliment to her. You can tell how much he cares for her, and much he loves her, by the way he looks at her. It is a huge honor for me to be able to share these moments, these laughs and tears with you.

Destination Weddings: Yosemite California

I look forward to sharing wedding photos every week with those who care to see them. Often it's the bride and her friends and family. Sometimes, however, I can't share photos from weddings I shoot. This is one of those cases. So while I was in California shooting a beautiful wedding, with a beautiful bride at the end of May, I don't have wedding photos to share with you on this blog. However, while I was down there I got to go explore some in Yosemite.
