Have you noticed? The weather seems to have shifted. It is beginning to feel like fall! I am already looking forward to the fall colors! I love being able to offer families that might not want a full blown session the option of having a shorter session. These sessions are only available a couple times a year. The galleries are smaller, the sessions are shorter, and are only available on certain dates. Enter the Limited Edition Spokane Family Mini sessions! Your family is whatever you would like it to be- just the kids; kids, plus Mom and Dad, a couple! These sessions will take place in my field or at a park type location nearby. The spots are very limited, so be sure to snag yours soon!
I have been looking forward to Jessica and Patrick’s wedding for almost a year now. I mean who doesn’t love hearing during the initial consultation that the bride is wearing an Alfred Angelo Disney Princess wedding gown! Then you add in the fact that the ceremony would be taking place on Lake Pend Oreille. From there we boated into Sandpoint, Idaho for the reception at the Sandpoint Event Center.
Jessica and Patrick met at WSU their freshman year. One of the things that I loved about their wedding party was that they were either all long time friends and went onto college together or they all met each other in college. It felt like a huge family! They all were so happy for each other and invested in everyone’s lives. On top of that you have all the additional friends and family that made their day special. They helped by creating the flowers, the cake, and decorations. The ultimate contribution was by Jessica’s Aunt and Uncle for allowing them to use their house and yard for the wedding. Oh, and all those amazing flowers are all done by her aunt as well!
The other recurring theme for the day was FUN, lots and lots of fun! These guys know how to party and party they did! From beginning to end it was a celebration of two people that they loved getting married and starting a new chapter in their lives.

I will be honest part of me is so excited for fall to arrive! In large part, because I’m done with these 90-100 degree days! Doing sessions while sweating has lost all appeal. I will be sad for school to start and my kids to be gone all the time (at least that is how I’m feeling today. lol) I do love doing fall family portraits though. I love the colors, the textures- hello, sweater weather, and the fall foods! I’ve had several people asking about family sessions this fall, so I thought it would be fun to do a little something for all of you that are thinking ahead and ready to book those sessions.
Mini session information will be coming up shortly, so stay tuned. Sessions will most likely take place either Sunday, September 28th or Saturday, October 4th.
Corinne and Tyler’s wedding is coming up in September. I’m already looking forward to it! I know I am going to have so much fun capturing their big day. Before the wedding I love getting to do a couple’s engagement photos. It is great opportunity for both them and me to get to know each other better. Many couples may be a little anxious about having all their wedding photos taken. The Engagement session is perfect for setting them at ease and seeing what they have to look forward to. It also provides some beautiful more relaxed photos for the couples to enjoy together.
Corinne and Tyler decided on an Urban setting for their session. So, we headed into downtown Spokane. I love that each time I photograph someone in downtown I find a new nook and cranny. Sometimes it is as simple as changing an angle. Sometimes it is heading down a street I typically ignore. We set off on a little tour of a small area and had some fun together.
I have to say wedding’s like Karrie and Bryce’s make me love my job even more as a Spokane Wedding Photographer! Their wedding was a week ago last Saturday at Commelini Estates in north Spokane. It was stunning and lots of fun! From the moment I met Karrie and Bryce I knew that their wedding was going to be something special. They are just one of those couples that makes you believe in love and Happy Ever Afters.
