One of my favorite things about being a photographer in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene is that I have the privilege of working with some of the most incredible professionals in the industry. My friend, Ashley, of Ashley Graham Events is one of those incredible people, and I had the pleasure of photographing her and her husband in a beautiful location last week.

I had a personal goal this year to bless more people around me, and one way I knew to do that was with my camera. I was so excited to offer an anniversary session to Ashley and Chase, because Ashley is one of the most generous and deserving people I know. Every time we’re together, she is giving to someone else.  I see her as someone who is always giving, and giving, and giving, so I wanted her to have a moment where she was the one being focused on and given to. And, what a beautiful “moment” it was! True to her stylist nature, Ashley prepared a little picnic for the evening, complete with a champagne and Sugarfina pairing that was so cute. She and Chase enjoyed her creation along the banks of the Spokane River, and I enjoyed capturing a set of special photographs for such a sweet couple.

Ashton and Michael are engaged! This darling couple is getting married this month at Schweitzer Mountain, and I’m really looking forward to their big day.  But, before wedding fun, first come the engagement photos, which we shot along the Spokane River. Ashton and Michael photographed beautifully against the dreamy backdrop, and it’s since become my favorite location to shoot.  As a photographer, when you find a location with perfect natural light in an amazing setting, you have to jump on it! I’ve been back here so many times in the past week, I just can’t help myself.

We’ll be working with Soiree Event Design for Michael and Ashton’s wedding, so it’s sure to be an incredible day!

Adam and Danielle are married! This gorgeous couple had an equally beautiful wedding at the Hagadone Event Center in Coeur d’Alene, a venue where photos practically take themselves.

It was such a pleasure witnessing these two become husband and wife and getting to know their families and friends a bit as they celebrated throughout the day. Adam and Danielle are charming, playful, witty, and madly in love–and it shows! They were blessed by guests who joined them from around the world, and by wonderful speeches from their parents and wedding party. I will always remember how touched Adam’s mother was that he asked her to help him choose Danielle’s engagement ring and that Danielle asked her to help plan their wedding, and Danielle’s mother’s speech about how her daughter never settles for second best, as seen in her relationship with Adam.

Thank you to the fun-loving newlyweds for asking me to capture your perfect wedding day! And, cheers to the many, many years of love and happiness ahead!

If I had to pick one wedding detail to describe Scott and Amy, it would be their beautiful Funfetti-flavored, naked cake. Elegant, whimsical, surprising, and FUN–never has a wedding cake been more suited to a couple!

After a year and a half of planning, their Settlers Creek wedding was such a perfectly joyous and easy-going celebration of their love, and a dream to photograph.  All of the photos turned out so effortlessly beautiful, thanks to all of Amy’s hard work! My personal favorite moment of the day was during the wedding ceremony, when Scott told the story of how he planned to propose to Amy and how he actually proposed, then dropped to one knee for a second go around, giving her the sweet wedding proposal he had imagined all along. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, including mine.

Congratulations and all the best wishes to the happy couple! Here’s to a lifetime of making each other laugh, loving, and having fun.
