TRAVIS & ELLI | WEDDING

Words are not enough to explain how much I LOVED this wedding! And I’m so excited to finally share it with you.

This day was the perfect example of doing your wedding the way you want it. Simple, classy and so much love was poured into this day. Down to the smallest details. From Elli’s wedding jewelry, to the wheat in her boutique. Everything had a meaning.

Usually on a wedding day, I have very limited time with just the couple for portraits because the day is jammed packed with so much, but with such a small ceremony, I got to spend well over an hour with just them walking around the neighborhood. Such a dream!

Please give me all the small weddings and elopements! They are my favorite!!

EVIN & JESS | LIFESTYLE

This summer I had a shoot in LA and was lucky enough to drop in and do an in home session for a longtime friend of mine.  

In home sessions are one of my faves to shoot...especially if you have little ones. Everyone is a little more comfortable and you get to capture what life is really like and...

The reality of nap time. 

ROB & ABBY | WEDDING

I know, I know, it's been a hundred years since I've last blogged. My excuse? My life has been insane between photography, ministry and my personal life. Still trying to find some balance! 

So to make up for some lost time, here is one of my favorite weddings from this past July. Rob & Abby were amazing to work with and super chill. They traveled from Chicago with their pup to have a beautiful non-traditional summer wedding on top of Black Rock in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

Besides the fact that I was obsessed with her dress (which had pockets btw!), I loved how these two just stuck true to themselves. No bridal party and not your traditional reception. Seriously, my kind of people! 

It's a good reminder that when you're planning your wedding, you do you!

PATRICK & TOREY | ENGAGEMENT

To say that I'm excited about this September wedding is an understatement! Patrick and Torey are so in love and are all smiles. They seriously are perfect! 

We took a lot of photos and got eaten alive by mosquitos, but I'd say it was worth it. 

Happy Wednesday!

PROPOSAL | LIFESTYLE

I've never been more honored, excited or nervous to shoot something. It had to be perfect for these two. 

She had no idea how long he'd been planning this or that he asked me to be there to capture such a defining moment. 

Patrick and Torey, I'm so excited for you two! 

SMOKE BOMBS & MIRRORS | LIFESTYLE

I'm a firm believer in shooting for ones self. It helps you get out of creative slumps and improves skill. 

So that's what this. 

Purple smoke bombs, prisms & free lensing oh my.
