I love these two. I’ve never had so much fun doing senior pictures in Nampa. But, of course, it’s not quite fair because I’ve known these two for quite a few years and always love a good excuse to hang out with them. We ran all around Nampa and downtown, goofing off and getting amazing pictures. They had a few ideas they wanted to accomplish, we hit a coffee shop first, then ran around doing different things based loosely on some ideas they had.
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.
I love this picture because it’s you. In all the messy smiles and shy eyes, it’s you. And you’re beautiful. Not like a supermodel. Like a you. In all the unique ways and little gold nuggets in your heart. It’s you. And I love you. Not just when you’re perfectly fashionable and gorgeous, but also when you’re messy and your makeup is old. Because that’s how I know you. I love this picture because it’s you.
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.
Exactly when you get your photos back varies depending on when you go through your proofs, my work load, and your package. But here are some examples of real weddings and when couples got their photos back. A wedding photo timeline is when you can expect to get proofs, pictures, and edited photos after your wedding.
So Matt and I haven’t had pictures of us together in a long time. We’ve taken a few here and there on our travels. But for being an Idaho photographer, I have very few pictures of us together! So this trip to Los Angeles, we went to the beach and did some pictures together. I love him.
This sister shoot blew my expectations out of the water. They redefined the idea of family photography in Idaho. These two were so much fun, and you can tell from the pictures!
I was discouraged after this shoot because I couldn’t get the husband to smile for the camera. Reluctantly, I started going through the edits. Then, I stopped. Wait a second. He had smiled. He just never smiled at the camera. He was always smiling when he gazed at his wife, though. His wife of 52 years.
I’m on my way out the door for a long day of shooting in the hot Idaho sun, but I was doing some last minute notes and edits for a wedding client. Then I thought, “Oh! Other people might want to know this.” Non-photography people rarely think about color correction or the work that goes into a photo AFTER it is taken. But a lot of the unique style of a particular photographer depends on their skill in Lightroom or Photoshop. So here, I’m going to cover three popular editing techniques. Most experienced photographers have a style they use dominantly. So if you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Idaho (or anywhere) make sure he or she likes the same style that you do.
As an Idaho wedding photographer, one of the things I do is look around, try to learn from others, and figure out people I can recommend if I can’t do a wedding. There are a lot of bad photographers in Boise, Idaho, even if they are cheap. It drives me crazy when people advertise themselves as wedding photographers, and then don’t take their job seriously enough to do good work. A wedding is the most important day in a person’s life, and although it’s a stressful job, wedding photography is a hugely important part of that! A wedding photographer is recording what you’ll remember forever. A bad photographer will come out with mediocre photos you don’t care to hang. A good one will help you remember all the best and brightest things and will show your love as worthy of art.
