Eric + Rachel |Engaged | Eagle Wedding Photographer

Eric and Rachel met in church,  and one of the reasons I love this so much is because  it reminds me of how i met my husband as well. Their love for each other is just so incredibly sweet, and real. I could see right from the beginning just how much Eric  absolutely cherished his bride to be. They absolutely adore each other but more than that they really take pride in those things that really count, She adores Erics love for the Lord, his integrity and honesty and kindness. These  really are the things that matter in life and I love this about them.

I think my favorite part of my time with Eric and Rachel was just getting to know them. They are so easy to be around, and I can easily see how they are made for each other. Rachel is so much fun, gorgeous, and has the most amazing smile. Eric is so calm, easy to talk to, and smiles at Rachel in a way that will make you melt. I honestly don’t think that these two could take a bad picture and of course they both have smiles to die for!

I am so excited to be apart of these two and their wedding day….

Erin & Jake | Engaged | Boise Engagement Photographer

You may be thinking “Wow, do you  live  in some sort of  magic land, because your images have been so lush and green lately!”,  NO, but that’s just because it’s a crazy and weird summer here in Idaho, this one location was beautiful!

Erin & Jake were so easy to talk to and get to know. As soon as I introduced myself, it felt like we had known them forever! As we walked around Barber Park, I heard about their Jobs, their wedding planning, Nursing school, and some about Jakes Diesel Mechanic shop.

It’s sessions like these that make me so thankful for clients who could be our everyday friends in normal life outside of work! I am so excited for their wedding this September  at Harmony Ranch. After 5 years of shooting weddings, I have yet to photograph a wedding there, and I’m so excited to finally get a chance to! It’s a gorgeous location!

I love how dreamy these feel. Maybe it was Erin’s  stunning smile or amazing dress… maybe it was the lush green meadow in the background… or maybe it was just a great day because I get to work with such great people!! I know this, I can’t wait to see them again! Enjoy getting to know Erin and Jake via their engagement pictures!

Abigail & Rhett | Eagle Idaho | Eagle Wedding Photographer

 

Abi & Rhett are the sweetest couple in the world, young and in love like many of us did so long ago. Adventures planned packed and ready for the future.   The day started out as planned while the girls were all getting ready at the Edgewater Event  Center in Eagle.    All of the details were just perfectly beautiful.  Before you know it we were off to the church for the Ceremony  then back to EdgeWater for more fun for the reception, food, dancing and more…

As Lauren, MiKayla and I headed down the freeway  Utah bound for a fun filled weekend  with this beautiful, fun, and amazing family of mine whom I adore like crazy and absolutely would not trade for anything in the whole world!!! You might be thinking what could possibly go wrong?  Everything? Based on the look in Mikes eyes;)  or maybe it just might have went perfectly right! Well not so much, LOL.  However, let me just give you a little disclaimer. You just can’t make this stuff up in the Johnson home….  So thank you AnnMarie for going along with my crazy ideas, Mike for putting up with them and for letting me torture you.  We got through it, had a little more fun that we planned for and made some great memories. And I am sure they all Love their Auntie Kris!

Lexie & Reed Engaged! | Boise Idaho | Engagement Photographer |Adventure Awaits

Do fairy tales still happen?  Does that night in shining armor  still ride in on his white horse to carry his princess off to another land? Does Chivalry still exist?  Well ladies I believe when we are faithful and patient in Gods plan, He blesses us in the big things.

Adventure Awaits!  Lexie and Reed’s adventure began almost 2 years ago when I was in Japan, Ohh, I should fill you all in I am also her mom and photographer.  While Reed came over to go shooting with Travis that might be where it all began, the friendship, the fun, the entertainment and the the joy, laughter and love that has filled our home from that moment on.

From that day forward Reed has become a part of our family, yes including dinners at night.  He treats her like the princess we have always wanted for our little girl to marry, he loves God with all of his heart, he works very hard and he has the heart of a servant! it just doesn’t get much better than that.  Their personalities balance each other out which we love, it’s a good thing to because she’s got a little sas, which he says he loves’ LOL, I guess we all  do, it’s what keeps our home laughing in tears most days. She does bring us so much JoY! and I just can’t imagine it any other way.  Congratulations you to and welcome to the family Reed 🙂

Amber & Ivan | Jerome Engagement |

Ivan and Amber met in high school. Amber was the new girl and Ivan had been there all his life. He said Amber was different from other girls and he wanted to get to know her. Ivan was just a tad too shy to ask for her number so his friend had to do it for him. Soon after that we started talking, and then than became like the best of friends and went everywhere together. Since that day, Ivan and Amber have been inseparable. They are still best friends and have always have fun everywhere they go. This last summer they decided to do a California road trip. One of their stops was Huntington beach. The sun was setting and Ivan took Amber for a walk on the beach. It was there that he got on one knee and asked her to marry him.

Ryan & Gabriella | Idaho | Engagement

“They couldn’t count on forever, until they could count on each other. And so they did.”

Generally, when a friend thinks they have the perfect guy for you, the man ends up being a total dud. But this wasn’t the case for Gabrielle and Ryan.

Sometimes a surprise meeting with a man is the best thing that could happen to a girl. The best things happen when you’re not looking.

When Gabrielle met Ryan down town, they’re was an magnetizing attraction that drew them back together and before they new it, it would bring them finding their future together.

The day was bright with sunlight, and a perfect 85 degrees. A perfect day to feel the sand between your toes and take a dip into the Cancun ocean.

Ryan led Gabrielle by the hand to the vast ocean and they stepped in together.

After a few minutes of swimming in the warm water, Ryan explained he was cold and was going to get out. (Keep in mind through all of this trip Gabby thinks she is here for Ryan’s Birthday and has no clue what is about to happen)

She followed with confusion as she felt the warmth from the day and the warm water herself

Ryan said he wanted to take a photo and set the phone up in the sand. Thinking the phone was on a timer, Gabrielle smiled and waited for the phone to work its magic.

Only the phone didn’t take a photo, because it was actually set on video and recording instead.

He turned to Gabby, took a breath in, and got down onto one knee. The knee every princess dreams of seeing their true love kneel on.

It was that moment he asked for her hand in marriage. And in that moment she said YES to the man she knew she couldn’t live without.

Lexie & Reed Idaho | Couple | Photographer

You see, he loves to fish, hunt & skip rocks but it was her joyful smile, contagious joy, bright eyes and kind spirit that reeled him in, and his steady, stable, strong love for her that kept him.

Three years of a casual friendship, some casual flirting in high school, the way she would tickle the back of his neck in their Ornithology class because he was so ticklish. Those high school halls when he would so sweetly kick her heels as she would walk by, who would have ever guessed that a few more years would have slipped by before God’s plan really would begin to unfold. It would not be before Reed walked in the door to shoot with Travis which also just happed to be Lexi’s little brother before he would soon realize he was about to embark on the journey of a lifetime that would change the course of his life forever.

Lexie and Reed, thank you so much for sharing your love with us as you adventure into new places, as God takes you both into new waters. I new from the moment I first met Reed and watching you two be in love that God had a special plan and purpose for your life together.

PS.  Thank you for being such dazzling models and helping me on this prodject I am so excited to share with everyone the fun new surprise we will have coming up at the beginning of the New Year!
