I’m lucky enough to call these two good friends. We hung out in Boise’s foothills and took some beautiful pictures in pretty light. Their love for each other is so filled with happiness, and it’s one of the strongest loves that I’ve ever seen. They are **not engaged** but they are in a long distance relationship and wanted some pictures before Alyee went back to finish her senior year of college. We had a lot of fun, and I can’t wait until Alyee is back for Christmas break!

Callie and Dan’s wedding was on a hot, clear day, and everything was set up perfectly for their summer wedding. These two share such a strong love for each other – I especially loved how much they made each other laugh the whole time. The whole day was full of heartfelt moments from start to finish, and I was blessed to be a part of it.

Congratulations, you two. Your wedding was stunning, and so is your love for each other. <3

From a perfect engagement shoot in the rain to a perfect Idaho backyard wedding, these two have a special place in my heart forevermore. I’m kind of obsessed with them, in the non-creepiest way possible, of course. They trusted me with everything, and with that kind of trust comes amazing results.

Pictures are worth a thousand words, so I won’t write much, but I will say this: Monica did all her own makeup, hair, helped make the decorations and bouquets and… made her own dress. And it is one of the most stunning dresses I’ve ever seen. If that’s not impressive, get this: she’d never made a dress before.

I could write forever about how their love is perfect, how awesome they are as individuals and even better together, how the wedding felt incredibly peaceful and perfect and joyful, and how they’re amazingly skilled dancers, but I’ll just let you see for yourself.

Congrats, you two. <3

Farm Kitchen. Poulsbo, WA.

Josh and Kristin are one of the cutest couples that I know. Their love for each other is so happy;  the both of them just radiate around each other. Their wedding was held on a day with perfect sunny, cool weather at Farm Kitchen in Poulsbo, WA. I was so honored to travel there to be a part of their amazing day.

Lucky Peak Engagement

Four great things:

1.) These two were so kind and fun and awesome

2.) The weather, which had been rainy and stormy all week, decided to be nice for the two hours that we shot. Thanks, weather, you’re the real MVP.

3.) Lucky Peak was beautiful as alwaayys.

4.) Annnd, these two brought their dog. And it was adorable. And so, if you know me at all, I was filled to the brim emotionally. (And also, if you ever want to book a session with me, feel free to bring your dog. always. And if you don’t have one, just bring someone else’s. I’m sure they won’t mind.)
