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 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!
