Its a Giveaway! I Spokane Wedding Photography

If you missed all the gorgeousness of yesterday’s post you really to go and see it!  Yesterday I shared a special Bridal inspiration session I did to showcase how amazing Bridal portraits can be.  It featured some very special vendors.  One of whom is Ladybird Creations.  She made all the accessories that we used in the shoot, including the amazing garter.  She custom made it to perfectly compliment our dress that we had picked out for the model from Bridal Collections.  This garter is especially fun, because it is actually two pieces.  Apparently this is the new trend.  I hadn’t heard of until Erin was telling me about it.  By having it be two pieces you can use one piece to throw at the reception, and still keep the other part for yourself as a keepsake/heirloom.  I have to say I love this idea!  I’ve known about having a toss bouquet for a long time (awesome idea as well!), but hadn’t heard this one.  Yet, another reason that I love doing these inspiration shoots… I always learn something new!

Here, is the best part!  Erin from Ladybird has graciously offered the garter that we used in the shoot as a giveaway.  So, if you’re getting married soon this is perfect for you!  And, bonus not only are you getting your garter you can also check off your something blue!  Those beautiful little vintage rhinestones are, you guessed it, blue!  Love it!  Here are a few of the images from yesterday with the garter.

Bridal Portaits by Spokane Wedding Photographers

Many of Spokane Wedding Photographers offer engagement sessions, just like I do.  I always tell my wedding clients that engagement photos are a great way to get to know each other (couple and photographer) better.  And, of course the other benefit of getting some beautiful photos of the two of you together.  Today I want to share with you another idea for before your wedding.  Bridal portraits offer another amazing chance to get to work with your photographer as well as your hair and makeup artists.  For many of us for years we’ve dreamed about our weddings- the dress, our hair, the colors, the flowers.  And then, in a flash it is over and done.  On the wedding day of course we’ll take some beautiful photos of you both by yourself and with your groom.  But, the bridal session is all about you!  It is about capturing all the details and the gorgeous wedding glow that is you!  Consider instead of having boudoir photos done (which often remain tucked away in drawer somewhere) having a bridal session.  I don’t know a single groom that wouldn’t love to have all these beautiful photos of his bride.  And, these photos can actually be displayed for him to enjoy whenever he’d like.

I was inspired to put together this beautiful session by this simple idea.  The bride getting ready in her groom’s button up.  There is something so simple and yet so sexy about it!

A Finders Keepers Family I Spokane Family Photographer

It is always such a honor to have any family ask that I take their family photos, even more so when it is the first family photo!  And, the topping on the cake when it is the owner of another local business that I love.  That is exactly what today’s post brings!  Allyssa owns Finders Keepers in downtown Spokane.  One of my favorite places to go ooh and aaahh over all the beautiful dresses.  Her little girlie- Miss H joined their family in October, and she asked me to take their first professional family photos!  It was December, so it isn’t exactly the best time of the year to be outdoors, especially with a 2 month old.  Luckily, I love my little studio and was able to have it nice and toasty warm for them.  Miss H was so much fun to capture.  I love her big chubby cheeks (who am I kidding, her whole cute little self is chubby!) and that grin will melt your heart in two seconds flat!  I love the very J Crew, Gap style that Allyssa went for to create a neutral and natural palette for their photos.  They are sure to remain absolutely classic for years to come!

Spokane Wedding Photography Inspiration

I was honored to be part of this Spokane Wedding Inspiration session.  Inspiration shoots take place when one wedding professional is inspired to put together a group of vendors to basically put on a mock type wedding.  Local vendors provide- flowers, table settings, a model in a wedding dress, dessert, props, the whole nine yards. In most cases all we’re missing is a groom, wedding party, and guests.  This inspiration shoot was put together by Alyssa with Belle Journee Events.  She was inspired by the simple idea of a bride taking a sip of hot cocoa.  The venue she found to pull it all together is the beautiful Camden Ranch in Elk, WA.  It was December, just a week before Christmas.  Alyssa did a great job in balancing the Christmas-y feel with a beautiful winter wedding.  We had an amazing team of vendors to round out our shoot!  Our model for the day was Alisha Heller- who was an absolute trooper!!!  It was cold that day, even in snow boots, jacket, scarf, hat, and gloves and she was out there in a strapless wedding gown!  She was a pleasure to work with and I love how her red hair pops in all the photos.  You can find a complete vendor list at the end of this post.

The Bowdish Family I Spokane Family Pictures

The Bowdish family came to me last fall to take their family pictures. This is a very special family, because their oldest daughter Kyra is one of my senior models for the class of 2014!  I love getting to work with my seniors again to capture their family photos before one of the kid’s graduates! It is not only a big time in the seniors lives, but also in the family’s life!

For their family photos Mom wanted to capture the gorgeous colors in Spokane.  Although most will want to go to park to get these colors I suggested that we go to one of my favorite spots for seniors.  I had never taken a family here before, but knew they would be up for the adventure!  It is the perfect little nook tucked away and full of gorgeous colors, the creek, a bridge, and an awesome dirt road!  It was perfect for this country family!  When I do family photos I always make sure that we not only get photos of the whole family, but we also get some of the kids by themselves, and one of my favorites is to get one of just Mom and Dad.  For most couples after we have kids the photo of just the two of us are pretty few and far between, something that should be fixed!  Mom chose to do a couple colleges with these photos- creating two pieces of art for their home.  One with a photo of each of the kids by themselves and one of her and dad.  The other is the photos of her with the kids and dad with the kids!
