Spokane Photographer: Hadley Family Photos near Lake Coeur d'Alene

I met the Hadley family for the first time when they pulled up at 7am a couple of weeks ago. They are beautiful and energetic - all of them. Brook and her amazing husband have an incredible family on their hands, and I was the one chosen to capture them between all the various things going on in life, in that small moment when they all came together to go boating and hang out. I greatly enjoyed my time getting to know them, what they love to do and how they support each other. So check out the amazing Hadley family, they made it easy on me today.

Spokane Family Photographers: Askey Family's Morning Family Photos

I met the Askey family at a beautiful home rented for their family vacation down on Sanders Beach in Coeur d’Alene. The beautiful morning was everything we could have hoped for, sunny, pleasant and warm. The Askey family (1 family turned into three) was amazing, with beautiful children (who were so well behaved!) and kind parents. While we never had the chance to visit too much, I greatly enjoyed my time with them. I hope they had an amazing time in Coeur d’Alene, and that they love these photos for the many years to come.

Montana Wedding Photographer: Dillon & Mariah's Montana Lake Wedding

Dillon and Mariah had an incredible day, from the beautiful home in the forest that Mariah got ready at, to the incredible Cedars we did portraits at, and finally to that amazing sunset late into the evening (sunset that day was almost around 10pm). The thing is though, it was Dillon and Moriah who made their day special. It was these two who were kind, and generous, who laugh and look at each other with such kindness. Look no further than their first look, and the way Dillon looks upon his beautiful bride to know the love they share among each other. Or the single tear that came down Mariah’s face as she walked down the aisle to say “I will love you and no other” in front of her best friends and family. I loved being there, and i’m so excited to share these photos with you. :)

Coeur d'Alene Family Photographer: The Blackmore Family

The Blackmore family is from Chicago, but they were up here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest to celebrate family. I was the lucky one that got to meet this amazing family, the family that is three families now, and meet their beautiful, kind, and expressive kids. While we didn’t have a lot of time to talk, I enjoyed the time I did have with them, and I loved being able to take some amazing family photos of them downtown Coeur d’Alene. What a great opportunity for capturing some amazing moments of these beautiful people.

Coeur d'Alene Engagement: Rob & Christina's Lakeside Sunset Engagement

They met in high school. In fact, they both liked each other in high school. Now, stories that start like this often go the route of "they met and dated in high school, they were on and off a little in college, but finally they realized that they were the one, and they got together for good". Well, in Rob and Christina's case, this isn't true. In fact, the only move either of them made in high school was Christina's random kiss just after guitar practice.

Engagement Photographer: Kevin & Lauren's sunset farm engagement

They met on Tinder. Kevin was the first person Lauren had ever met with, and she had only downloaded the app the day before. To say she was nervous when they met at the bar for some drinks is probably an understatement, but it doesn’t take a genius to know it went decently well. I would say it wasn't "the most amazing thing ever" because Lauren said their first two dates were "a little awkward."
