Whimsical Bridal Shoot — Arbor Crest Winery; Spokane, WA

This Arbor Crest winery shoot was a dream come true. When I sat down in January to make some goals for this year, one of those goals was to plan a styled shoot around one of the “dream weddings” that I wanted to shoot. And because of the timing, we picked this whimsical, feminine shoot. I wanted to do a shoot that could display how beautiful our area is. Spokane, and the Inland Northwest, is so gorgeous. And we’ve got some beautiful natural backgrounds.

I’ve included a vendor list at the bottom of the post for you. I would recommend each and everyone one of these vendors. They are amazing at what they do, professionals, and they took my vague vision and made it tangible and wonderful.

Heather & Angela’s 10 Year Anniversary Party — Sneak Peek!

Most of my weekends during the year are taken up by weddings (and in winter, I’m making the most of my season pass at Lookout), but sometimes I squeeze in an event or a party on those weekends. They’re a fun change of pace for me. And last weekend, I got to photograph Heather & Angela’s 10 year anniversary party.

10 years. It seems like forever to me right now, but I know it’s only a drop in the bucket to many couples.

Heather & Angela threw a (not so little) backyard party, and it was fabulous fun. Thanks ladies for having me along!

Featured! — Alaine & Dan’s Mazama Wedding on Ever Ours

It’s Monday again, and I’m not sure how that happened. Our exchange student arrived last Tuesday, and the rest of the week passed in a blur of school registrations, errands, and getting him settled. Over the weekend, I had a sweet anniversary party (sneak peek soon!), we replaced a window, and took our student to the fair. Followed by roasting marshmallows over a fire. Maybe someday I’ll write about how hosting an exchange student has brought back a lot of crazy memories from when I was an exchange student. I’m too young for flashbacks, right? ;)

Anyways, I’m excited to start Monday off with a sweet little feature on Ever Ours. Alaine & Dan’s wedding is over on Lydia’s sweet blog. I’d love it if you could check it out, and leave her (and Alaine & Dan) some love. While you’re at it, you can check out some of the other beautiful weddings featured on Ever Ours.

PS – You probably remember Alaine & Dan’s beautiful wedding from last September. You can see it all here and here. And here, if you don’t. Happy Monday friends! <3
