For a few years, weddings were getting bigger and bigger. More people in the wedding party, more guests, larger venues. But lately, I’ve seen a return of the backyard wedding. Smaller weddings, at a location that is personal, and it’s been fun to see the changes. I love big weddings, and I love small weddings too.

Korey & Steven were married in a family member’s backyard, under and arch built by another family member. They had a small, fall ceremony, surrounded by friends and family. I chatted with Korey quite a bit through email and by phone before the wedding, but we didn’t get a chance to meet until the wedding day. It was such a joy to meet you, Korey & Steven. Thank you for including me in your wedding day!

Open Position: 2016 Photography Intern/Assistant

As wedding season is about to ramp up, I am looking for an intern/assistant for the summer season. This is a paid, mostly non-shooting position, where you’ll be assisting me at weddings, but there is some opportunity for you to shoot, if you so desire.

This position is seasonal, running from June-October (exact dates TBD), and is great for anyone looking to get into wedding photography, or who wants to see what it takes to run your own photography business.

I am looking for someone who is:

— Professional, personable, and well spoken.

— Responsible and punctual.

— Available most Saturdays and some weekdays or weeknights.

— Able to carry 20-40 lbs easily, and for long periods of time.

— Can commit to 5-10 hours/week, depending on schedule, which will be discussed in advance.

— Have reliable transportation.

— Be able to have fun! Weddings are great. They’re hard work, but it’s one of the most exciting days of a couples’ life.

Pay is $10/hour, and there may be some travel opportunities available. You do NOT have to be interested in wedding photography for this position, but this is a great position for someone interested in weddings, photography, or owning a small business. Shooting is 100% optional. You should like cake. ;)

Email me (emily@emilywenzel.com) with the subject “2016 Assistant”. Include a cover letter stating why you’re interested in the position, your resume, and at least 2 references. Applications are being accepted through March 31st.

It’s sunny outside and I can hardly believe it’s March. February is a short month, but it flew by. Probably because we did a lot of work on the house. This year for Lent, we gave up watching TV. It’s been hard, but on the other hand, we put the finishing touches on the bathroom, and redid the pantry. Which I have no photos of, because they are all on H’s phone. Oops. I’ve got one more big project to finish, and then I’m going to take some photos with my real camera, so I can do some side by sides from when we got the keys.

We flew down to Portland! It was a rainy, cold day, but that didn’t stop us from taking a shoe selfie with new carpet. It’s not nearly as strange as the old carpet, but I’m glad it’s still a thing.

While we were in Portland, we had a great dinner with Bethany & Peter, and got to see a Gonzaga basketball game with our friend Mellie. I also dragged (not really) H to the Tabor food cart for a fried cheese sandwich, because I was feeling homesick for the Czech Republic. As a bonus, I got to have a lovely chat with the owners and brush up on my Czech. We also got to do (not) boring stuff like go to Ikea and Powell’s. :)

Because the weather was so nice, I spent a lot of time outdoors with Shadow. We’ve gone to the dog park quite a bit, and taken walks through the neighborhood. We’ve met lots of our neighbors too! I can’t wait for more warm weather. Shadow is no longer pulling me around as much, although he’s still a punk who climbs into the back seat of my car.

Miscellaneous stuff: We have the best realtor, period. She was awesome when we were buying our house, and she’s always sending us sweet little notes, like this one that celebrates two years in our house this month! Tulips are starting to be in season, and I love that! Here’s a sweet bouquet of them in my living room, featuring the gorgeous blue walls we picked out and sunshine! Lastly, more sunshine, and after months of growing my hair out, I realized I didn’t like it and went short on the sides again. I’m waiting for it to warm up a bit more before I go short in the bangs too. :)

February Recap // Emily Wenzel Photography

Next up: March! We’re hoping to get some more house projects done, wedding season is ramping up, and I cannot wait for the farmer’s markets to start, and for warm weather!!! What did you do in February?

Hi, I’m Emily!

Based in Spokane, I travel throughout the Pacific Northwest for weddings, portraits, private events, and more. You'll usually find me with a bag of Haribo gummy bears or a chai tea in hand. Thought lately, this little one has kept my hands pretty full....see full bio.
