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.

Spokane Chateau Rive Wedding: Marc & Nathalie

Marc and Nathalie had an incredible wedding - from the beautiful place they both got ready at (two private residences downtown Spokane) to the incredible venue they decided to say their vows - their wedding was filled with many great moments. We had a lot of fun with the ladies in the morning as they got ready, laughing with them, but also capturing all the little details of the day. The guys, who always get ready in a significantly different way, were equally fun. Marc and Nathalie had some great moments too, from the first "look" to the incredible ceremony where they said their vows for the first time. Standing there, with the Spokane River behind them, saying they want to spend the rest of their lives together. It was beautiful. I couldn't be happier for them, and it is a huge privilege for me to be able to share these memories from such an awesome day.

Downtown Spokane Wedding: Grant & Faith

Grant and Faith had an incredible wedding. They got married downtown Spokane at the Monteville Event Center on a day that was perfect for early May. The location was beautiful, the light was great, and I enjoyed every minute with the bride and groom and their friends and family. We had some great moments, but one that I remember so well is when Faith - who is scared to death of heights - Inched close to Grant so we could take an awesome photo on the roof. it was one of the last things we did that day, and it was beautiful. I loved getting to know everyone, and I'm so excited to be the one who can share these photos, these memories, with you.
