Nik // Ferris High School — Spokane Senior Photography

I ask all my seniors if there’s somewhere they’d like to do photos. Sometimes, they’re looking for a specific look, like something urban with lots of funky colors, and I suggest a few places that would work. Other times, they have a specific place in mind where they want to do photos. Nik wanted to do his photos out at his uncle’s place. I believe the text he sent me was along the lines of, “there’s some fields and a tractor there and it’s out near Nine Mile.” I very nearly got lost about three times heading out there, but it was exactly like Nik described, with some horses and fairly big fields.

What made Nik’s session great, was taking photos at a place he like. If you’re nervous about having your photos done, doing them at a place where you’re comfortable means that you’re already feeling at east. Because we spent time at a place Nik enjoyed, he got senior photos that represent him at this point in his life. And, as a bonus, I spent far too much time trying to convince one of the horses that there was nothing in my camera bag for him. :)

2017 seniors: I am now looking for a few senior reps, if that’s something you’re interested in, let’s talk! Or if you’re thinking you’d like a winter session — skiing or snowboarding? — this is a great time to get in touch with me. Hit me up through the contact form above!

Happy Halloween from Emily Wenzel Photography // Spokane Event Photography

Happy Halloween! Informal poll here: what’s your favorite (Halloween) candy? And do you sneak them out of the mix before the kids show up to eat them all? ;)

Last weekend, H and I spent the evening at the Odyssey Youth Masquerade, running their photo booth. We had a blast checking out everyone’s costumes and not winning anything in the silent auction. :D Plus, in between shooting all the lovely people there, I threw on the timer and snapped a couple of us, and the amazing costumes we threw together. Because he’s my “partner in crime”. ;)

I’m terrible at thinking up costumes, probably because every female costume is either a movie star or something “sexy” and October in Spokane isn’t exactly *warm*. I had great plans to decorate, but with us still (sadly, annoyingly) in the middle of renovation work on the house, it’ll be pretty low key again this year. At least I bought an orange light bulb for the porch. And we carved pumpkins!

Here’s to hoping we get lots of trick-or-treaters, because if no one shows up, I’ll end up eating all the candy myself. [Milky way, by the way, is my Halloween candy of choice.]

Bethany & Peter — Davenport Hotel Wedding Preview // Spokane Wedding Photographer

You may remember Bethany & Peter from their stunning Portland engagement session. When we first met last winter, we spent almost as much time talking about travel as we spent talking about their wedding, and I knew from that moment that we’d get along great.

From the very beginning, they had a plan for their wedding photography: morning wedding at the Davenport Hotel, followed by portraits of the two of them outside in the beautiful fall colors. When the leaves started to change early this year, I was a bit worried. But it worked out perfectly, and I loved ending my 2015 wedding season with this couple.

Bethany & Peter, I can’t wait to share more photos with you!
