Katie + Seth Engaged // Downtown Spokane Engagement Session with Kids

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!!

Maranda & CJ — Downtown Coeur d’Alene Engagement // North Idaho Engagement Photography

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!!
