Spokane, WA, Destination Wedding Photography | Family and Baby Photographer » Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer

I have really been meaning to share this amazing opportunity I had awhile back. Every year there is this huge photography convention in Las Vegas called WPPI. I have always wanted to go to then I met Richelle Dante Photography, which then turned into meeting other inspiring photographers/friends I knew I had to get on board. I shared a room with a bunch of gals and we set out on an adventure. Abi Q and Richelle Dante where hosting a desert shootout with Sugar and Fluff. This was super fun to be apart of as they produced a beautiful set up for everyone to be apart of.

If you would like to see more of this Shoot Out make sure you head of to Ruffled Blog as it was featured on their site.

The inspiration from this shoot “was a moment in time as mother and daughter have lunch in Central Park in the 1960’s”

“Instant attraction!” is how Jackie explained to me when she met Ryan for the first time. I was able to be their to capture their sweet, natural wedding for them.
They had come together with Ryan’s side of the family to get his parents backyard together for the reception. Loved hearing about all the little and big details in how they made it all happen. Everyone that helped truly made this wedding feel so special to them. They have the most grateful hearts.
I had asked Jackie to share a little bit about how Ryan had proposed to her cause it was just to cute not to share, here is what she had to say…
In March, It was a rainy Monday, we were staying at my sister’s house until our apartment was ready. I had said goodbye to Ryan that morning, he was headed to work in priest lake for the whole week. I was laying down for a nap that afternoon when Chris had called me downstairs for something. He said “Come look at this,” and gestured for me to open the backdoor. I opened it and Ryan was on his knees while it poured outside. He was soaked and started to ask me to marry him, I shouted “yes” before he could get the word “me?” Out.

We started with photos at Ryan’s parents house then went to Turning Point Open Bible Church for an intimate outdoor ceremony.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing this rustic, classic wedding at New Life Church in Ranthdrum, Idaho.

I can’t thank Joy and Daniel enough for having me their documenting this time together as they became husband and wife. Their love for each other is so sweet it was fun to watch Daniels eyes light up as he saw his bride for the first time that day and Joy being so giddy with delight.

I had Joy share a little bit about the proposal | Enjoy

It was October 25, 2014 – about 10 months after we had met-Daniel took me on a hike at Holmberg park. We both like hiking and had been there many times before. He led us to “our” spot, where he had stashed his guitar (and his sister and best friend who sneakily-sort of- took pictures and video). He was so nervous I could see his heart beat just by looking at his neck. He sang to me a beautiful song that he had written and then he knelt down and asked me to marry him!

Joy’s jewelry was a gift from her mom

Joy and Daniel wanted to do a first look for their wedding. We were all so happy in the end with that choice as it gave me extra time to capture them as a couple on their wedding day but also because it ended up being a thunder and lightening storm right before their ceremony.

We were able to take photos next to the church which made the photos so simple and beautiful. Loved that Joy and Daniel were willing to walk around things and on the street with me to get some fun images captured.

All of the guests were so willing to make the wedding happen outside in the rain. But unfortunately there was thunder and lightening. So the ceremony was moved inside. The staff, volunteers, and family members were just so willing to help and make it happen. Super thankful for all of their hard work.

Katie has been a family friend of ours since she was a little baby. Seeing her grow up into such an amazing women of God has been so fun! And when she announced that she was engaged to an equally amazing man I could not wait to meet Cooper. Cooper you are truly the perfect guy for Katie! I absolutely LOVE photographing their engagement photos right next to my parents house off of Palouse Hwy here in Spokane, WA. I mean this tree in the first photo I couldn’t get over how gorgeous it was!

I asked Katie to share their engagement story with you all….. Here is what she had to say!

The proposal was on May 3rd, it was my birthday actually. I had NO idea it was going to happen. As far as I knew we were going to have to wait another year to get married because of school and finances. But what I didn’t know was that after Cooper got his “big kid” job he started saving for a ring. We went to church that morning like we do every Sunday. He told me to pack some hiking clothes and didn’t tell me any details about what we were doing or where we were going. After church he surprised me and took me to get my nails done, He said I would never pay to get it done myself (which I wouldn’t, having horses destroys nails) so he wanted to treat me. After that we went to his house and we hung out, made taco salad and I actually fell asleep. He woke me up and told me it was time to go on our adventure. So I got my hiking clothes on and off we went. We ended up going to pine bluff trail head, near 9-mile to go on a hike. This was the same spot where him and I went hiking before we were even dating, we sat at the top of the ridge and read our bibles together. I didn’t think anything of it when we got there because we had gone hiking there since and it was a fun hike with a great view. When we started up the hill to the ridge, Cooper put his jacket on, which was odd because it was hot out. I asked him why he put it on before hiking up the hill and he simply said he might be getting a cold and got chilly. But he actually had the ring in the pocket of his jacket. We got to the top and I went to sit down at the bench we had always sat at, but he suggested that we go sit at a different bench further down the ridge. So we did and after sitting for a minute he said we should go look at some flowers to our left so we did. Then we walked back up to the bench and he faced me and grabbed my hands and started talking to me seriously about how he loved me so much and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and that he wanted that day to start today. Then he got down on a knee and asked me to marry him. I was in total shock and after I said “yes” he pointed to the bushes where one of our family friends Apollos was standing taking pictures. Then he said that my parents were around the corner and we could go say hi. My mom, dad, brother, our family friends and his family from North Bend were all there. Of coarse there were a lot of happy tears even though I’m not much of a crier. We proceeded to have toasts and take pictures on the ridge overlooking nine-mile. It could not have been any more perfect!

Before we left Cali we took the kids on a Disneyland | California Adventures trip. It was seriously one of the busiest days ever when we went. DONT GO during Christmas Break!!!! Bad idea…..But we still had fun even though we were only able to go on a handful of rides. It was a lot of waiting in lines and picking kids up and down, running around, just keeping them happy lol

First we were just planning on going to Disneyland not both parks to try to save a little money since they are so young we didn’t need to do both. But then we heard that Disneyland was closed so we could just do California Adventures until 2:00 then they would let us into Disneyland. Thankful that they just let people pay for one park that day since there were just to many people. That just goes to show you how crazy busy it was!

After we got our tickets we headed to California Adventure and went straight to see the Frozen area. Well, bad idea it was a 2.5 hour wait. lol yup with our young ones that would have been IMPOSSIBLE. Well…manly for Jaxson. Hayley does well waiting.

Any who…we headed to get in line for the Disney Jr. Show. And that was the best wait ever for us. The kids had so much fun. It was the cutest thing to see Hayley singing along with the show. And how interactive it was just made it that Disney Magic.  I mean who doesn’t love fake snow falling, bubbles, and confetti falling from the sky.

We then just walked and waited, walked and waited. Having friends join us along the evening was so fun too. This was all in December and just seeing how much they have changed since then makes me so happy I brought my camera along to capture these memories I will never forget with them. I love them so much!
