Casey and Tiara traveled all the way from Portland, Oregon for a beautiful fall engagement session in Spokane, Washington!  I love everything about their photos.  Engagement sessions are extra magical when you can see the couple’s love radiating through their images, and that’s exactly what I see when I look at these.  So much love, friendship, affection, and fun.  I’m looking forward to photographing their wedding next summer at one of my favorite Spokane venues, Trezzi Farm!

There is no better way to unwind from a busy season as a wedding photographer than with a beautiful inspirational bridal session in Spokane. I loved photographing Lauren along the banks of the river, it was the perfect setting in which to capture the essence and beauty of the season.

For me, the simplicity of this session is it’s most stunning quality (well, that and the amazing redheaded beauty that is Lauren, of course!). I loved incorporating nature so fully into these photographs.  Everything worked together, from the direction of the sun to the light-reflecting neutral stones along the water–even the florals have an organic, foraged feel, full of leaves and berries.  These images are so soft and peaceful, and it’s so great to see how the reds and greens bring out the tones in each other to create a striking effect throughout the images. The romantic glow of the overcast evening sun setting in the distance helped to create a certain creaminess that I love so much in photography.

Makeup by Evelyn Mauro provided a light and airy color palette for Lauren, and the addition of an incredible bouquet from Erica’s Expressions was the icing on the cake! It was great to see how Lauren’s pink lips complimented the pinks of the bouquet perfectly, too.

I love anniversary sessions and am a big believer in documenting your love as a couple throughout the years, so I was thrilled when my friend, Lisa, asked me to photographer hers with her husband, Justin, at the end of September.  Not only is Lisa a beautiful person through and through, she is also a fellow Coeur d’Alene wedding photographer, the talent behind Lisa Wise Photography, so I was extra honored to have the privilege of capturing this moment in time for her and Justin.

I think most photographers will agree with me when I admit that it can be intimidating to have one of your peers in front of your camera! No matter how close our friendship, I always feel just a tad nervous anytime I’m asked to photograph someone whose work I admire so much…and Lisa was no exception.  I think most photographers will also agree with me that, luckily, it’s also strangely more comfortable at the same time.  What a mystery!

Justin and Lisa will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary this year, and the love between them is still shining brightly after all this time.  They’ve held onto that spark and chemistry, which was fun (and inspiring) for me to see.  If I didn’t know better, I would have thought I was photographing their engagement session!

Thanks so much, you two lovebirds, for such a sweet and beautiful session.  It meant so much to me to be able to capture these images and to imagine your children and grandchildren enjoying them for years to come.

There’s nothing quite like being a photographer in Spokane during the fall season, and fall seems to be the perfect time to capture families in their element.  I take on a very limited number of family sessions per year, so it always feels like such a treat to have little ones in front of my camera after a full season of photographing couples.  This session with the Mischkes was no exception!

We started the afternoon with an anniversary session and ended it with a family session when little Annabel was delivered by her babysitter, all fresh and ready to go. It was the perfect blend of focusing on Luke and Nichole’s relationship as a couple, and on the three of them as a family unit. Both are so important, so I was thrilled to be able to provide them with a mix of different types of photos for the day.  All three of them rocked it, too!  So confident and so at ease in front of the camera, they made my job a breeze.  I especially loved seeing the relationship between Annabel and her parents.  It’s obvious that she’s very close with both of them, and I’m so pleased that that shines through in all of the images.

I will be sharing the anniversary portion of this session in a few weeks, so keep your eyes out for more Mischkes!
