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!!!

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!

Missa & Nader | Seattle & Bothel Washington | Wedding Photographer

Let’s get the summer kicked off with this beautiful new family in Seattle Washington.  The wether was perfect  and the family and friends for the week were just incredible!  If you Know Missa and Nadder at all you already know they have a heart of gold and I am pretty sure this is a match made in heaven.

Missa finished her degree and will be starting her nursing up this summer, so this is so exciting to start off their new marriage with and Nader  does housing management so, they will be a busy couple while living in about 30 min from down town Seattle.

As far as the wedding day went, I would say it went pretty perfect she had family and friends were round all day to help. the weather was a dream…  and my beautiful bride and groom couldn’t have been moore perfect.

*** I also want to give a BIG shout out to Michael Quintana  Missa’s Brother for helping me shoot this day… He helped with the mens getting ready and the first look when he wasn’t busy being in the wedding. He did a great job… Thanks Michael… we love you.. ***

lets start with the necklace her mamma got her right before the day  to wear with her dress.

Sara & Brandon | Engaged | McCall wedding photographer

As I headed up the hill to McCall the weather and roads just happen to be perfect for this weekend enagement session for Sara and Brandon! Sometimes with our crazy winter weather you just don’t know what you are going to get in the dead of winter, but we were prepared! Warm blankets, hand warmers & treats for the kids. There was only one small series of unfortunate events that took place;)   The road into the cabin was so slushy and icy we couldn’t actually get in. Hey but, it was fun trying! And I did leave early so no worries there.   The Holiday Inn it was for the night. No worries!

Sara & Brandon wanted to shoot in their favorite little town of McCall, Idaho and can I say they nailed it! I mean this girl was not feeling well at all and by the look of these photos, you wouldn’t even know it. I was so proud of them! The kids were amazing!

Here are a few of my favorites from their McCall engagement session. I can’t wait for their June wedding at Sandstone Vineyards. You won’t want to miss this one, so keep your eyes out on the blog for the rest of their story!

Amber & Ivan | Jerome Idaho | Wedding

Amber & Ivan’s love for each other was pure magic. I loved watching the way they glanced at each other through the night. The sweet moments, The tender kisses & the twinkle in their eyes of fresh love.  It was almost as if there was a little magic in the air . It might be one of my favorite moments of a wedding day. Those sweet tender moments, they are so priceless, those sweet father daughter dances, they melt my heart everytime.

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 🙂
