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….

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 🙂

Carrigan & Maddie | Idaho Engagement |Engagement Photographer

These two are the cutest and we seriously had so much fun out at the Chateau Des Fleurs and in Hidden Springs.

This beautiful girl had the surprise of her life February 18 at The Vintage Wedding Show hosted at the Chateau des Fleurs! It was the day after her 18th birthday. Maddie was part of the fashion show and Carrigan was most definitely her Prince. She had NO clue he would propose right there on the runway for all to see. Maddie’s favorite part of the evening was definitely at the end of the fashion show when Carrigan walked down the runway while their song was playing. Maddie was videoing him walking down the runway and suddenly he stopped in front of her chair. I would imagine this princess had the sweetest of dreams that night, that is, if she slept at all.

Thank you so much to Idowed    Chateau Des Fleurs Rooney Mae Couture  and the many other amazing artist who helped this lovely couple have a dream proposal!
