Ally + David

It was revealed during the toasts, that both Ally and David were nervous around each other when they first met. An obvious sign that there was something different about them. Several years later and the nervousness has given place to love and the knowledge that they were meant to be together for always. I was so privileged to help Ally and David capture their perfect wedding day at Fox Canyon Vineyards in Marsing. The view was stunning, as were all the details that Ally, her mom, and sister obviously put so much time and thought into. Ally and David, thank you so much for making it so easy for me to be your photographer! You were so accommodating and kind, and I enjoyed watching every minute of your sweet and totally fun wedding from behind my camera lens. I wish you the best of everything in the years to come!

Allyson chose an amazing Vera Wang wedding dress. Makes me want to get married all over again.

Madison – Cole Valley Class of 2015

What a beautiful girl, inside and out! Madison, it was such a pleasure getting to know you as we spent one of the last gorgeous fall days together. Thank you so much for getting up early and chasing the sunshine! I wish you all the best as you look towards graduation and your future beyond that. I’m so glad you’re a science girl like me, and I’m sure you will be one amazing dermatologist some day. I hope you love your pictures!

BFF’s

They are 2 peas in a pod. In every way. They have been friends ever since their moms were friends, meaning way before they were even born. This photo shoot was full of giggles, secret code names for boys, and very long list of Pinterest ideas. It was totally rad! Do people even say rad anymore? And I get free babysitting out of the deal. For a very long time. Emma and Ellen, I think a friendship that can last 2 big moves in your relatively short lifetimes, will most certainly last forever. Love you both. Enjoy!

Downtown boys

A perfect fall evening spent downtown taking pictures of great friends. What could be better? Steph and James, it’s always a pleasure to hang out with you and your energy filled boys. Truly! I couldn’t help but think as I looked through these pictures, that God is good. He has certainly brought you through a miracle and is doing big things in your lives. You are an encouragement to us! And you’re kinda weird like us too, so we are glad to call you friends. And Steph. . . you are one gorgeous momma! Enjoy!

Elisabeth + Derek

Their story came out piece by piece as part of their wedding invitation, then his testimony, and finally their vows. The first time their eyes met at church, they both felt something spark. Elisabeth wondered who the dark haired stranger was and where he came from. But she was reserved. Her walls were carefully built and she guarded her feelings well. Derek was making a fresh start. He was hopeful of the future, though never really dreaming of all the good things God had in store for him. A month later, they had their first date. And a month after that they were engaged. Elisabeth and Derek, if ever two people deserved love at first sight, it is you. I wish you the best of everything as you begin your lives together. It was a privilege and so much fun to document your beautiful wedding at the 4th Street Gardens in Emmett. Looks like you’re having a blast on your cruise! Enjoy:)
