I’m blogging all out of order because I’m so so behind, but I really wanted to share Tara and Alex’s engagement session before their wedding tomorrow! We met up last fall for a chilly but super cozy engagement session at Manito, and they brought their super adorable, snuggle puppy – Nacho – to join us for a few photos. Y’all, I love (most) pets, so I would love love love to photograph you with your sweet pets! Please bring them to your session!! After years of photographing sessions with dogs and some at home with cats, I’ve learned a few things, and that makes your session go smoothly with your furry friends. Alex and Tara had me laughing the whole time we were taking photos, and they were so great to work with and even humored me when I asked them to jump a couple times so I could put together this fabulous little GIF at the end. I’m already planning what to do for their wedding tomorrow. You know it’ll be fun!!
Good morning! Last summer, Katie and Seth booked me for their beautiful Palouse wedding. Besides being two of the sweetest, most giving people I’ve had the chance to meet, they’re also parents to a crew of kiddos who were champs at both their engagment/family session and the wedding. I really believe that family is family, no matter what the connection is. And because of that, I love doing these engagement sessions that are also family sessions. They aren’t going to be a romantic walk in the park the whole time, but they are a special glimpse at your family right before you get married.
For Katie and Seth, we decided to meet downtown and get some photos together in the park and then we finished it off with a bit of time for just the two of them as the sunset. Their littlest one decided to be my assistant, and made sure they both looked at the camera when I asked them too. ;)
Next up, I’ll blog their sweet wedding!!
When I met up with Jen & Matt in person, the first thing I learned about them is how much they love their kids, and how excited they are to have their kids in the wedding. So, it was only natural that we include them in their engagement photos as well. And heck, why not add in an over exuberant dog as well? We had a wonderful time on one of the last true fall days, and I can’t tell you how much I laughed with this sweet family.
While we did the majority of their photos at Manito Park, they wanted to do a few photos at Taco Bell as well, since that is where they met. And how cute are those hot sauce packs?!
Jen & Matt, I can’t wait for your wedding in July!!
I am so ready for summer. I don’t know if it’s because winter was so terrible, or because I’m getting all caught up on blogging these beautiful sessions and weddings from last summer, and that has me dreaming of days so hot I want to hide in the freezer. Okay, maybe not quite that hot. But still! Warm sunshine, sandals, and a walk around downtown Coeur d’Alene sounds really nice right now.
Meet Maranda and CJ. They are getting married this summer, and I cannot wait for their big day! We met up on a hot, sunny, August afternoon last summer to do their engagement photos at lake Coeur d’Alene. This was – sadly – the first time I’ve actually walked all the way around the floating dock/boardwalk in Coeur d’Alene, but I think I’m going to have to make it my mission to do so more often this summer!! Maranda and CJ are the sweetest couple, with such big hearts for others. I cannot wait to meet their friends and family, and be a part of their wedding day in June!!
Jen, Matt, and their five kiddos kept me laughing on Saturday at their engagement session. We lucked out with the perfect window of weather, and the last of the fall leaves in Spokane. I can’t wait to share more of this sweet family in a few weeks, and I am so excited for their wedding next July!!
