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.

Coeur d'Alene Engagement: Vincent & Danielle's Country Lake Engagement

Vincent and Danielle are two people who have magnetic smiles. It really doesn’t take too long to look at some of these photos to understand what i’m talking about, they just seem to enjoy life, enjoy their family (aka, their dog) and enjoy each other. While our time together was partly all based around dodging tons of mosquito’s (at least, until their friend brought some bug spray), the majority of it was enjoying the incredible area we’ve been blessed to live in. The lake, the mountains, and the fields are something that are incredible, and really not that readily available in other areas of the world. I’m thrilled too hare the photos of this amazing couple, and I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this coming September.

Spokane Senior Photographers: Brett's Senior Photos

There isn’t much to say here except Brett and I had a great time as we wondered through some beautiful scenery, taking some awesome photos. We talked of video games and Star Wars (of course) and ultimately I had a great time. We love a lot of the same things in different ways, Brett loves sports (Hocky), I love it (basketball). He loves video games and Star Wars, and he loves playing music. I may not be a music guy, but I do love taking pictures. Anyway, i’m pumped to be able to share these, and I hope you love his senior photos.

Coeur d'Alene Photographers: Aimee & Tina's Engagement

Photographing engagements is always fun because I get the chance to get to know a couple, get to know who they are, and what makes them “them”. Aimee and Tina met at Starbucks when Tina had moved out to Seattle to pursue job opportunities. Tina went right up to Aimee and said "let's be friends" - so they were. Over the course of months they became good friends, hanging out, drinking beer, talking and doing things friends do. Aimee told me that it was about 6 months in that she began to realize she was attracted to Tina. I asked her if she pursued her, or not, and she looked at me like "well, I did, but I didn't" if that makes any sense. I think what should be understood here is that Aimee was interested, but she wasn't going to try and force anything.

Spokane Wedding Photographers: Kekoa and Rachel's Spring Wedding

There is something about photographing weddings that is just so fun. Seeing people in love, but also seeing them with their friends and families is so meaningful. Kekoa and Rachel’s wedding just outside of Spokane at On Rivers Edge was beautiful and filled some great moments.

Coeur d'Alene Engagement Photographer: Adam & Ashley's Sunset Mountaintop Engagement

They met in first grade. Now, I think it would be easy to build out a story around this fact, perhaps saying they were best friends all through school, talked all the time and eventually, sometime in high school these two amazing people decided they wanted to be together, and then, in college, decided they wanted to be together forever.
