Las Vegas, Nevada’s barren desert really does make for the most amazing light and photos. Now being in the Pacific Northwest¬†I miss all that dry land to do photos in. Its like you can never be fully happy. California people want to photograph in lush greens, forest escapes, big mountains and then people from Washington want dry barren deserts, beautiful golden light, and ocean breeze. Now moving to Washington I have more of an understanding of what people have been talking about. I am even more grateful for this opportunity to be creative. I feel like living in Washington has already taught me to think differently¬†and to really push myself in¬†how I capture images.

As promised…Part 2 of the Walk in the Park…Styled Shoot Out

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.

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.
