Coeur d'Alene Engagement Photographer: Patrick & Jenny
Patrick and Jenny aren't local. In fact, they don't even live near Coeur d'Alene, so when this Phoenix Arizona couple asked me to take their engagement photos while visiting our beautiful location I was pumped. I love getting to know new people, and learning more about them. Like how one of Patrick's first thoughts when seeing Jenny for the first time was "woah, she's cute". Jenny, for her part, thought something similar.
You see, they mat when Jenny crashed Patrick's birthday party in Vegas (they shared mutual friends and she was invited to come along, even though she did not know Patrick - the reason for going in the first place). They told me it didn't take long, and they both hit it off really quickly. It was just over the course of several months after (of long distance, as she lived in San Francisco and he lived in Seattle at the time) that they would become official.
Jenny told me that she didn't know what took Patrick so long to make them "official", but Patrick didn't think he had to. He said "we were talking on the phone every night, it just seemed implied". That isn't where Jenny was at though, and when he told her he loved her for the first time, one of her first thoughts was "are we even dating?!" That of course, got remedied quickly, and once Patrick moved to Arizona to be with Jenny, they got engaged pretty quickly.
There is no doubt these two love each other, and I'm so happy I had the chance to capture them while they were up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
