Jake & Erin | Married |Boise Wedding Photographer

As soon as we arrived we were so impressed with the gorgeous setting. The Venue was beautiful and the event staff were amazing!!  It was the perfect setting for an intimate wedding! Jake & Erin were surrounded by family and friends as they shared their vows in  boise Idaho. It was absolutely perfect….. no rain… no humidity, and a beautiful sunset!

The property itself isn’t huge and so Jake & Erin were so trusting when I asked them to use unique and unassuming areas for their portraits! They walked dirt roads, we not afraid to get dirty and stepped into a hydrangea bush all for the sake of great portraits, and I couldn’t have been more proud!!!

Mara and I love photographing their beautiful wedding day and we’re so thankful that Jake & Erin you are such an amazing couple. Thank you for allowing us into your life for this special season! It was truly an honor to capture your day for your families! Enjoy your blog post!!!

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…

This is Us: The Johnson’s | Utah Photographer

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!

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!

Lexie & Reed Lifestyle session

Had so much fun with these two! Lexie and Reed met in high school, however the sparks didn’t start flying till Reed showed up with Lexie’s little brother one day to go shooting.  Let’s just say it wasn’t long before there were more than guns going off in our house.  Oh did I mention Reed loves water.  Yes, I was dying laughing.  and NO, there is NO ring. we were just having a little fun, in fact so much fun. I just had to share:)
