Christine and Taylor Day After Wedding Session | Boise Photographer Stephanie Mballo

Christine and Taylor were married in a beautiful wedding ceremony in Salt Lake City this past fall. Their wedding day timeline was a little rushed (as most wedding days are), so they decided to have a couple’s session the day after their wedding. We met at sunrise, and the session was a dream. We weren’t rushed for time in the way that couple portraits can be on a wedding day and were able to explore around the capital building in Salt Lake.

Candice is an amazingly talented photographer, and I was so honored when she came to me with this project. She wanted an intimate at home type of session with her family while also capturing new images for her brand and her business.  The only problem was her home didn’t have the best light. After a little bit of discussion, we decided to stage the setting at my house. I cleared out my living and dining room, and it worked beautifully.  The love that this family has for one another is so sweet and it was such a pleasure to capture them all together!

Emily and Isaac Wedding | Boise Photographer Stephanie Mballo

Emily and Isaac celebrated their wedding at Still Water Hollow in Nampa, Idaho, and the whole day was just perfect. Their love for one another is so obvious in everything that they do. Isaac’s reaction to seeing Emily during their first look was one of the most heartfelt and emotional that I’ve seen since becoming a wedding photographer. From beginning to end, their wedding day was full of love. Isaac and Emily, thank you for trusting me with documenting this day in your love story!

Boise, Idaho Wedding Photographer, Stephanie Mballo Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine | Boise Wedding Photographer

This post is a long one, and one that is so very dear to me.  This past September I was blessed to be able to photograph the dreamiest of editorials for Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine.  The magazine came out on newsstands a couple weeks ago (get yours at Barnes and Noble, Fred Meyers, and other local stores!) and I’m now able to share all of the gorgeous images from this shoot. The creatives that collaborated and worked together are among the most talented in the Northwest, and it was an absolute honor to capture their work.  Real weddings will always have my heart, but photographing styled shoots are so much fun! They are so much slower than photographing a real wedding, and it is such a joy to be able to slow down and spend a whole day photographing gorgeous details.


Thank you to all the amazing vendors who made this shoot possible.

All the vendors are linked at the bottom of this post. Don’t forget to visit their sites for more inspiration!

Traci and Mykl | Boise, Idaho and McCall, Idaho Wedding Photographer Stephanie Mballo

As a new wedding season is about to begin, I’ve been looking back on last year’s weddings and I’ve realized 1.) How incredibly blessed I am to be part of the happiest days of people’s lives and 2.) that I am very behind on blogging.  Traci and Mykl were married in the most beautiful barn wedding in New Meadows, Idaho last August.  They are one of the sweetest, most fun-loving couple’s I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. This wedding was full of so, so much laughter and love, but I was also blown away by Traci’s talent in putting this wedding together. She made all of the farm tables for her wedding, all the flower boxes and centerpieces, all the calligraphy, and created beautiful tumbleweed chandeliers. To top it off, Traci serenaded Mykl with the song “At Last.”

Traci and Mykl, it was truly an honor to photograph your wedding!

Rachel and Jayelynn | Boise, Idaho Family Photographer

I am so, so excited to share this blog post. I had the pleasure of photographing Rachel and her sweet daughter Jayelynn a few weeks ago in the most magical mother/daughter session.  Rachel came up with the concept for this shoot, and it was a dream to photograph.  If you are interested in having a styled session for you and your family or your children, I would love to talk with you!
