I loved photographing for these two. They had their wedding at Shadow Hills Event Center in Nampa, Idaho. Although I’m primarily a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I love traveling to my native state for photography. These two were a joy to work with. Herminio’s sister, Rosa, interviewed and hired me because she’s awesome and crazy and volunteered to help them with the wedding. I meet them and instantly fell in love with their vibe. The cake was by “Oh for Heaven’s Cake’s” in Nampa. Catering by a friend of the family. Shots in downtown Nampa afterwards. I used a Canon 5D Mark III with a Tamron 35mm prime lens, 50mm F1.4, and 70-200mm with a Yongnuo OCF and a videolight.
Brittany and Brendan came along at a time when I was so busy. We were in the midst of a move down to Los Angeles and their wedding was the last one in Idaho. But honestly, after their engagement session, I really started looking forward to their wedding. They’re both quiet, but about half-way through their engagement session, they dropped their guard and showed such a cute side of their relationship. Every time he wanted to, Brendan was able to whisper something in her ear, and this quiet, reserved girl would dissolve into giggles. It was absolutely adorable.
I have to say, Beside Bardenay in downtown Boise is one of my favorite places to shoot wedding photos. The light is tricky, but as a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I’m used to dealing with difficult light, and when it’s done well, it can yield extremely interesting photos. Jeff and Taylor are an amazing couple. They met working at a movie theater, years ago, and have that cute mix of friendship and romance. Throughout the day, Jeff kept looking over at Taylor, and telling everyone how hot she looked.
Katie and Alex were so fun to work with! Katie is a gorgeous teacher, and Alex is a archivist. They’re a nerdy, fascinating couple. Plus, they’re absolutely adorable. They love each other and couldn’t stop smiling.
Ceremony: Good Shepherd Lutheran
Reception: Boise Train Depot
From the moment I first met Abby, we had a kindred spirit. She’s a photographer, a depth of a person with striking blue eyes and a smile that could choke a camel (to borrow a phrase from my dear husband). I’d been a wedding photographer for a friend of hers, actually, a cute couple named Heidi and Matt. Funny story, Abby and Zack actually met at Heidi and Matt’s house. Throughout the months before the wedding, she’s become a dear friend and I was so excited to be her wedding photographer. Zack is such a supportive, awesome guy and I was so happy they got married.
These two were so adorable and happy on their wedding day! I was honored to be their wedding photographer in Boise, Idaho a couple of Saturdays ago! They met doing ministry together and they were so happy to be getting married. Their joyful presence was so easy to photograph. I’d always much rather photograph authentic joy than perfection. These two were both.
I loved being Sarah and Marc’s Boise wedding photographer. These two were adorable, scheduled well, and gave me all the time I wanted to wander around with them and chase light. It was a beautiful day.
I’m always extra honored when people we know ask us to photograph their wedding. In this case, Matt had known Liberty since his high school days, and we had both met Daniel at Sarah and Jacob’s wedding. So we were so excited to be their Meridian wedding photographers. They got married in Meridian at the Valley Shepherd Church. It’s a beautiful, classic building with traditional arches and stained glass. The families were kind and considerate, and the entire event was a perfect mix of perfection and fun.
Ever since I met them last fall, I’ve been excited for to photograph their wedding. Gavin and Jordan are a beautiful pair. Jordan was a tall, graceful bride and Gavin was an athletic, cheerful groom.
Although wedding planning is always hectic, these two had a lot of extra challenges on their plates. However, the actual wedding was beautiful and doing wedding photography for them was easy (and more relaxing than any other wedding this year). Ashlee’s princess gown was easy to photograph, and they obviously loved each other. Doing their wedding photos in Mountain Home was interesting, since I’ve actually only been out there a few times. But it worked out and we ended up with some beautiful images. All the best to you two!
