One Summer Evening | Nampa, Idaho Wedding Photographer

Earlier this summer, I had the opportunity to assist in shooting a wedding with Heather from Heather Sali Photography.  Carolyn and Russ had a beautiful, intimate wedding ceremony at their family home overlooking Lake Lowell.  It was a perfect, sunny summer day. And you couldn’t ask for a prettier bride or a more handsome groom.  I’d never met Carolyn or Russ prior to the wedding, but it was so obvious how in love they were.

And the details of this wedding? Incredible.  Each guest walked home with a small bottle of wine labeled with the Bride and Groom’s initials and last name.  The flowers were stunning, the cake was perfection, and they even had a Shelby GT to pose with! All in all, an amazing day. Without further ado, here are some of my favorites from Carolyn and Russ’s perfect wedding.

I just love the shot below.  The bride’s best friend (best friends since middle school!) flew all the way from Hawaii to attend the wedding.  This is the moment when she first saw Carolyn in her wedding dress.

 

 

 

Congratulations Carolyn and Russ!  And thanks to Heather for letting me part of capturing this beautiful day.

 

Nina and Uriel | Priest River, Idaho Wedding Photographer

You may recognize Nina and Uriel from their engagement session several months ago.  It’s hard to imagine two people more in love.  You don’t need to spend more than five minutes to feel the complete adoration and devotion between the two of them. 

Uriel and Nina met when Uriel came to study in Idaho as a foreign exchange student from France.  Because Uriel is French and Nina is American, they had to endure a long, stressful visa process before Uriel was allowed to re-enter the country to marry Nina.  Due to the complexities of the visa process, they were actually married in an intimate ceremony in November.  But they wanted time to plan a celebration where both families and friends could be involved.

So, on a windy day in early June, beneath the shade of tall pine trees, Nina and Uriel repeated their vows before their friends and families. 

Nina and Uriel, thank you so much for letting me me part of your celebration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love, Sweet, Love. | Idaho Photographer

A couple weeks ago, I met up with Leslie and Justin for a couple’s shoot in Moscow.  Leslie and I went to college together, and although we try to keep in touch, our busy lives prevent us from hanging out too often.  I was so excited for the opportunity to take these pictures for Leslie and Justin. They’ve been married for two and a half years, but they wanted to take the opportunity to take pictures just the two of them.  No real special occasion.  Just a celebration of their love.  I LOVE taking pictures of couples.  And, while, adore weddings, I especially love engagement and couples shoots. I love this act of celebrating love.  These types of pictures aren’t about a venue, a dress, or a cake.  They’re just about you and the person you’ve chosen to have at your side.  And I think that’s pretty special. Don’t you?

 

Oh, did I mention that in addition to being gorgeous, these two are actually quite the comedians?  It’s true.

 

What did I tell you?  GORGEOUS!

 

 

 

This next series of photos is special because this is the park where these two got engaged. To be specific, it was by the swings.
