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!!

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! 

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!

DOWNTOWN LIFE PART V | LIFESTYLE

Ahh....love is in the air and it's the about to be wedding season.

When client's give me the freedom to just create, magical things happen for all of us. Especially if they're willing to just wander around downtown.

Mike & Haley's wedding is going to be off the charts and I'm so excited to be a part of it. It's a huge privilege.

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!
