Prague & Olomouc on Film // Travel Photography

I’m terrible at sending in my film, because I’m always frustrated to pay for the shipping. So I stock it up until I have a few rolls, which can take a while in the winter. I just got a batch of scans back from late last fall and early this spring!

When I crossed the border from Germany into the Czech Republic, it marked the first time I’d been back in the country since January of 2009. I hadn’t meant to be gone that long, but it happened. And, because most of this part of the trip involved catching up with friends and my Czech host family (I have new brothers!) and fighting off a cold, I was almost surprised to see that I had actually taken pictures when I got the film scans back this week.

Olomouc: I lived in Olomouc with my host family for a year as a high school exchange student. While I was there in October, the weather was kind of gross and I only really had time to walk around the main square. I used to walk through this square almost daily after school and while it’s changed so much in the past decade, the main things (the UNESCO monuments, the town hall) are still, of course, there. Some things have changed – significantly – since I was there almost 8 years ago, but it’s still recognizable.

Prague: I spent roughly a day and a half in Prague, most of it catching up with friends. I stayed in the neighborhood I used to live in (Prague 2, near the border between Zizkov and Vinohrady) which has also changed a lot since I was there, and out near the airport.

Delta & Ricky // Duncan Gardens Wedding — Preview

Every day this week, I’ve waited, on edge, to hear the ruling on the same sex marriage. And today, we found out that love wins! I’ve always believed that, but I feel so proud today. So happy.

And, I’m pretty psyched to share a little preview of Delta & Ricky‘s intimate Manito Garden wedding from yesterday. It’s amazing to be a part of a wedding where there are less than 20 guests, and you’re one of the few not related to the couple. It’s even more amazing when their vows include Harry Potter references. Yes! Delta & Ricky, enjoy your honeymoon. I so excited to share more of these with you! :)

Maddy // Lewis & Clark High School — Spokane Senior Photography

Meet Maddy, she graduated from Lewis & Clark High School this month. Bam. She wanted some last minute photos in May because her braces came off and that’s totally a reason to celebrate! We wanted photos that showed off her beautiful personality and smile. Maddy picked out a couple outfits she loved, brought a couple friends with her, and we traipsed around downtown Spokane taking pictures of her just being Maddy. Having a friend or two along for your senior session makes it so much easier. They’re there to put you at ease, and jump into the occasional photo so you’ve got awesome pictures of you and your friends at one of the most important times in your loves.

What I love most about working with high school juniors and seniors is getting to hear about what they’re dreaming of. I think, as we get older, we tone down our dreams. But we shouldn’t! We should dream big. This is really what I love about photographing seniors. Maddy is going to school to study neuroscience. Something that this science-challenged photographer can’t even comprehend. She’s probably going to change the world some day, so watch out for this lovely lady.
