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!
Rachel and Marshal started this journey a little different, or is it really? Since Marshal owns and runs Jack City Fitness and and of course our lovely Miss Rachel may have wondered in looking for a job. It didn’t take long before she was hired, working and connecting with the man that wan soon to be her world, her love and the journey of a lifetime.
I first met Riley at Lauren’s wedding, it was pretty clear even that day that Shelly had found a keeper. I first met Shelly on Lauren’s 9th birthday. I knew she was a pretty special young lady when a former Miss Rodeo America managed to clear time out of her day to meet a little girl whom she does not even know for lunch. We have been connected every since that beautiful day and she has been part of our family every since. Shelly has managed to do everything from riding lessons, to rodeo queen lessons, which include (modeling, speech, interviews,horsemanship,photogentics and more) as well as just be an amazing friend and mentor in our lives. and Yes, she was in Lauren’s wedding, but enough about that lets move onto the magical love of two amazing people. I have always prayed for the man to come into her life that would cherish her the way she deserves, to love, honor, cherish and adore her the way she deserves. I even remember those days when she broke up with those young men who did not cherish her and their values didn’t stand the test of time. Then came Riley. The first thing I noticed about him was his gentle hart and the way he adored her, on the first day I met him, it didn’t take long before I knew she better not let this young man go. He really was her Prince. I mean let’s be honest he even does Yoga with her, now it doesn’t get much better than that. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I absolutely loved that i had the honor of telling the magical story and I do mean magical story of there day. It it is one to go down in history, every image tells a story of love, honor and dedication to those that love and adore them both.
