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!

"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire."

INDUSTRIAL STYLE | WEDDING

I legit don't have words for this shoot. I've been trying to come up with the perfect thing to say and I really believe the photos just speak for themselves. However, I have to give a HUGE shoutout to everyone who helped make this happen. I'm still so blown away by it all and I'm obsessed with the photos. It was magical. 

Living in Eastern Washington, when it's wedding season, about 95% of the time there is a field and a barn involved, which isn't bad. But Spokane DOES have an urban feel to it and can even be classy. You don't have to do the barn and the wheat field...you can do the sleek and the industrial and have a killer time doing it. 

I'm a big advocate for local creative business owners and I knew exactly who I wanted to be a part of this and thanks to Overbluff, I met two incredible wedding stylists! And to spare you from reading too much longer, here's everyone that blew my mind and went above and beyond. Make sure to go and follow them on their social media outlets and of course, hire them. You won't be disappointed!

K & D | WEDDING LIFESTYLE

These two. 

I heart them both so much. So laid back and down to earth. Hardworking and loyal. And hello...GORGEOUS! 

With their baby girl on the way and this cold snowy morning, I thought it was perfect timing to post their summer wedding. This day was so fun and I feel truly blessed to have been the one to capture their wedding day. 

Happy Monday everyone! 

DOWNTOWN LIFE | PART II

The city is probably my most favorite place to photograph (besides someone's home). I really don't know why, other than I really love the textures and the light. It was super overcast the day we went out, but the light was actually really beautiful and we got some awesome shots. 

I got to work with three awesome people for this shoot too! 

Thank you guys so much!

Model, Friend, Willing Subject | Rabab 

Makeup Extraordinaire | Kristina with Maud (seriously if you need makeup done, they are legit!)

Second Shooter, Bodyguard & Assistant | Pete Slippy Photography

Happy Weekend! 

THE HILL | LIFESTYLE

When you walk up to your client's home and you hear great music coming from it....you know the session is going to awesome. 

A beautiful home. A beautiful couple. Sweet kittens. This day was perfect and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect couple to photograph. 

They are the essence of my ideal client. 


FAMILY LIFE | LIFESTYLE

When I talk about lifestyle photography, this is exactly what I mean. Capturing your life as it's unfolding around you. It's an amazingly beautiful thing to be a part of. 

I've known Emily since second grade and it was surreal to watch her be a mom and wife. She and her husband are so good at being parents. They are chill and fun and those girls know that they are loved.
