Belle Journee Events Table Design — Event Rents Spokane

Tomorrow is April and I need something green and spring-like on the blog. I didn’t mean to take a hiatus from blogging for so long! Between moving into the house and a nasty cold, I’ve fallen a bit behind. But the sun is shining and I thought, I need to share this beautiful tablescape now.

Alyssa, the lovely lady behind Belle Journée Events, asked me to shoot a table design she did for the Spokane office of Event Rents. Every month, they have a different designer create a tablescape for their lobby. So I got to tag along and watched Alyssa set up (taking mental notes for future parties). Alyssa’s fresh green centerpiece had me hankering for spring even though it was freezing cold outside. It’s the perfect rustic chic table design, and manages to be fresh and spring-like without any flowers. It was a blast to spend as much time as I wanted photographing the table. During weddings, I sometimes only have a few minutes to grab table shots before guests come in. This time, I could take as much time as I wanted — and I did!

While we were there, Quincy (one of the kind people at Event Rents) even gave us a tour of their warehouse. I didn’t take a single picture, but it’s crazy huge. Stacks of chairs and tables, rows of linens, and shelves upon shelves of dinnerware. They have all different kind of fun stuff — everything from tables and chairs to sofas and wine glasses. In fact, I was tempted to ask if I could buy some of these lovely vineyard chairs at the table because I want them for my own house.

The Hallock Family — Spokane Family Photographer

A few weeks back, my friend Angie asked me about taking some updated photos of her boys. We schedule it for a time when their family was in town, so that we could also get a few photos of the extended family. All in all, six boys from newborn to teenager, and five adults.

Whoa. I was a little nervous. On the whole, boys don’t like having their photos taken like girls do. But these boys!

They had me laughing and snapping away so much, I almost forgot how cold and windy it was. Most of the time, I just chased the boys around a park (and parking lot) taking photos. I had to laugh, they’d find a spot they thought was cool (including this first spot) and yell out to me, Emily! Can we take my photo here?!

Then we popped inside to a little space Angie found, and took some more traditional family photos. Her little ones got a bit cranky towards the end — there’s only so much sitting still a kid can do at once — but we didn’t have any major meltdowns.

Angie, thank you for letting me capture your charming family! I had so much fun spending the afternoon with you all!

Choosing Your Wedding Photography Package — Tips for Clients

I had a couple fantastic shoots last week. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably saw a couple sneak peeks. I had planned to post one of them for you this week, but I’ve fallen a bit behind with the moving and unpacking.

[sidenote: moving in the snow is HARD.]

So instead, I’ve got another great Tips for Clients post for you. This one I wrote for the ladies over at Applebrides.

Featured Post on Applebrides

Congratulations! You’ve survived the first few weeks (or months) of being engaged. You’ve made some of the big decisions, but now you’re overwhelmed by what comes next. You’ve contacted a few photographers and are looking at their packages. Now comes the hardest part of picking a wedding photographer: picking your photography package.

You can read the rest of my piece on Applebrides. And remember, there is no “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to wedding planning. Your wedding schedule and photography needs may look completely different than what I’ve shown in the article. And that’s okay. These are just averages of what people tend to look for.

Interested in learning more about what working with me is like? Let’s meet for coffee — the drinks are on me — and we’ll talk about your wedding plans!
