Davenport Hotel wedding with bride and groom in ballroom kissing

Historic Davenport Hotel Wedding: Dylan & Kate

I met Dylan and Kate over a year ago when I did their engagement photos. At the time, neither of us thought I would be shooting their wedding. They were headed to the east coast, and were not planning on being back. Lucky for me, things change, and I had the enormous privilege of photographing their beautiful winter wedding downtown Spokane at the Historic Davenport Hotel. The colors were incredible, the designs and detail of the hotel made a lot of things stand out, but one thing that out shined the hotel was the couple. Kate is easily one of the prettiest brides I photographed all year, and Dylan has such an incredible natural way about him. They are naturals. I loved every moment I spent with them, they are kind, generous and funny - and their day was incredible.

Family Photography: The Harpers

The Harpers I met for 30 minutes on a cold, snowy day in Coeur d'Alene. I came rocking my snow boots and we flattened out a small patch in the two feet of snow to take some incredible family photos, and something became clear to me; this family is awesome. They had such great attitudes, they were a blast to talk to, and their kids were well behaved. The one photo we should may take us all 30 minutes took us about 5, and so in the end we got to take some more combinations and just capture what the Harpers are all about. I had a great time with these guys, and am so privileged to be able to share the photos with you here.

Wedding in the Spokane Valley: Michael & Alysa

Michael & Alysa had a beautiful day. It was one of those days, and mornings, where you weren't all that sure it was going to be a beautiful day. It rained all morning, and was even raining when we went to do their first look! But then it stopped, and instead of dealing with the rain, we had a beautiful day, with a warm sunset. I really enjoyed my time with both of them, Alysa has such a great personality, something anyone who knows her is familiar with, and it made the day light and fun. Julie Farley with The Make-up Studio did an awesome job with her Makeup, just as Ashley Valley with Salon Vogue did a great job with her hair.

3H2 Humans host prepping her podcast

Spokane Event: 3H2 Humans Grand Opening

I met the 3H2 Humans host a little over a year ago when we did some headshots for her, Lynnardo was awesome. She's kind, funny, personable, and loves what she does. So when she invited me downtown Spokane to her grand opening I was pumped. Allie's Vegan Pizzeria catered, which was excellent, there were a lot of activities and some great raffle prizes. Huge thanks to Lynnardo for having me come down.

Spokane Wedding: Joshua & Sharaya

Joshua & Sharaya had a beautiful wedding up near Mt Spokane late last September. I loved their colors, each building off of the natural fall colors, with the deep reds, hints of yellow, tan and brown. It all worked beautifully to create something awesome. They are also a couple that I loved talking to and spending time with. They were ready to do anything, and have a good time doing it. It was just a good day, from beginning to end, and I'm so excited I can be the one who can share these memories with you.
