Texas Wedding: Stephen & Juliann's Beautiful Country Texas Wedding

Stephen and Juliann had a wedding that was incredibly beautiful. I had the privilege of flying down to Houston Texas for their wedding this last March, and several things stuck out to me. One, it's really flat in Texas (I knew this, but it's one thing to know, and another to experience), and two, it's a lot warmer (and greener) in Texas in March than it is up in North Idaho. Now, both of these things probably seem like they are obvious, but what can I say? The last thing that I got to learn while there came to me a little later in my trip - I really love the people.

Coeur d'Alene Photographers: Nick & Brianna's Engagement

They met at the romantic, local spot known as the Beacon. I'm sure many people know the place I'm talking about, and also know it isn't as much romantic, as it is social. Because that's who Nick and Brianna are in so many ways, social. They are so fun to talk to and be with, they have magnetic personalities. It was this trait that actually caught Nicks eye when he first met Brianna, she was just having more fun than anyone else. What ended up happening is that they both were at the bar getting drinks for their friends, and ended up talking - but then they didn't stop. They talked for several hours. This freaked Brianna out, so she called her roommate and he came and picked her up.

Sandpoint Wedding: Rich & Sheri's Talus Rock Wedding

Rich and Sheri's wedding at Talus Rock, in Sandpoint Idaho was beautiful. It was small and intimate with only the closest of friends and family attending. The natural wood and setting of the location and it's surroundings were beautiful and really added to the day. I loved getting to know them, as well as their friends and family. Not only were they kind and fun to talk to, but they were quick to help, thoughtful in their questions, and so genuine. I loved every minute of my time with them, and I'm so happy to be sharing with you these photos of their amazing wedding day.

Spokane Maternity Shoot: Brendon & Kaylee

A couple years ago I shot an incredible wedding at Arbor Crest. It was unique, beautiful, and fun - and it featured some amazing people. Brendon and Kaylee had a wedding that I'll always remember, from an incredible first look, to an epic sunset on the rocks overlooking beautiful Arbor Crest. I had so much fun at their wedding, and it was such a highlight for me to see them again, almost exactly a year later (it was about a year and a month) at Brendon's best mans' wedding, Will.
