The Davis Family // Spokane Family Photography — Preview

The last couple weeks of December always seem to fly by. This year, it seems like they’ve flown even faster, probably due to our week away in Barbados, or maybe that’s just the curse of getting older? I can’t believe that tomorrow is Christmas eve already!

On Monday, I was able to meet up with the Davis family for some family photos. We debated rescheduling because of the snow, but I think the photos turned out lovely! I can’t wait to share more of them, but I’ll be taking a break until after the new year. Between the holidays, chatting with all the lovely couples who’ve been contacting me lately, and getting ready for the bridal show in January, I know it’ll be 2016 before we know it!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you have a wonderful holiday. <3

Heirloom Wedding Albums from Red Tree // Spokane Wedding Photographer

I’ve been meaning to write about my heirloom wedding albums again, but I kept forgetting to take photos. Last week, we had a little photo session on my couch. :) Albums are the most wonderful way to display your wedding photos. They’re one of the few tangible things you can share with friends and family, and I love all the albums my couples have ordered this year. Past clients: if you’re looking to purchase an album, I’m offering a crazy, never before done, deal of $150 off your album. Details at the bottom of the post!

First up: this is my mini “parent” album. I like to call it the brag book. It’s a perfect 6×6 inches, so it fits in your purse and you can take it everywhere and show it off! This is a replica of Erin & Andrew‘s wedding album. They chose the natural linen cover, and it has such wonderful texture.

Next up is Annie & Zach‘s album, which I delivered about 20 minutes after I took these photos. Nothing like working on a deadline. :) Annie & Zach wanted navy blue leather, to match the navy blue they used in their wedding decor. This is my 8×8 album, which I offer to my couples that book elopements or smaller weddings. The navy blue is so perfect and classic, and the leather is butter soft. Look at those thick pages! The mini album (above) has slightly thinner pages, but the larger albums all have these crazy thick pages.

I’ve blogged this album before, my 10×10 album in Japanese silk, but I wanted to show you it again. Alaine & Dan’s album is one of my sample albums, and nearly three years later, after hundreds of people have had their hands on it, and it still looks brand new.

Lastly, my other sample album, the 12×12 album in a beautiful cream leather. We embossed Laura & John‘s names on the cover of this baby, and it’s a statement album. You’ll see below, when I have all four albums together, that this guy is going to take up some serious real estate on your coffee table. It’s going to command your attention! Trust me, this album makes a statement.

Past clients: I’m determined to make sure my couples have albums in their lives, so I’m doing something crazy (don’t tell my poor husband/accountant). I’m offering $150 off your album if you purchase it before December 31st! I’ll start designing the albums in January, and you have to finalize your album by February 15th to get this crazy deal. Not only that, I’ll be offering my 8×8 albums to all past clients – not just my elopement clients. Email me for more details and to reserve your album. <3

Getting Some Sun & Surf // Barbados Destination Photography

Earlier this year, we realized that H had a lot of airline miles just sitting around. So we cashed some of them in and booked a vacation in the Caribbean for the first part of December. With the crazy windstorm that happened in November, adopting our puppy, and renovating the house, an almost week in Barbados was exactly what we needed. We hadn’t taken a vacation only trip since our honeymoon, we realized, because every other trip was based around visiting family, or a work obligation. Not a bad thing, but it was nice to get away to do nothing but soak up the weather and read a half dozen books.

I’ll be back later this week with Lizz & Ken‘s wedding, but I had to share one phone photo from our trip. Because today, here in Spokane, it’s dreary and gray. And I’m missing the rum punch filled, sun soaked days we had last week.
