These two were so much fun! We went up to Idaho City one cold (but sunny) day to do engagement pictures in the mountains. I’m always up to photograph adorable couples in the mountains. As an Idaho engagement photographer, I love using the available nature as a backdrop, and Idaho is the perfect place for it. This was only about an hour outside of Boise. Although the icy roads slightly scared me, and there’s no phone service for a good portion of the trip, it’s all worth it, as you can see from these photos!
Hannah and Matt were so much fun. I was adopted into Hannah’s awesome, big family that was eerily similar to mine. That basically summarizes how much I loved doing wedding photography in Boise for these two.
Hey Everyone! So a little bit ago, I was approached by an international friend who is getting married to a man on the other side of the world. The catch? They only had ONE photo of them together. So I came up with this free save the date design. It lets you use a low-quality image and actually looks decent. It’s kind of a retro pop-art look Polaroid design. Most Save the Date templates look AMAZING when you have a really good photo (which I always recommend, haha), but sometimes don’t work in the off-situation you can’t get a good photo.
I’m a big fan of thank you gifts. If you’re looking for a good bridesmaid gift, check these out:
One of the things (besides robes) that I see most often used on a wedding day is a wine or water glass. The problem, however, is that everyone gets them mixed up. Or they fall and last only as long as the getting ready party. This is a thermos-style, personalized wine glass that is under $25. It’s super cute and perfect for everyone to use on the actual wedding day.
This one is from bridesmaidgiftsboutique.com. They have a ton of other cute ideas, everything you need to thank the ladies who spend a lot of time and money to help make your day!
When I woke up in the morning and rain was pouring down, I was a little concerned for Vicki and Tim’s Boise wedding photography. Boise usually isn’t rainy, and they had said they were having it at Barber Park. Concerned and going over solutions in my head, I drove to the address on my GPS. When I got there, I discovered a whole new building in the park that I had never seen before and sure enough, the wedding was there! Barber Park has an event center, everyone! It’s a beautiful little building, perfect for weddings, and big windows let the outdoors come in without the inconvenient parts (like the rain).
These two were so much fun! I knew from the moment I met them that I would love taking their engagement pictures in Boise. They both harbor this aura of funky charm. Her choice of clothing and accessories was artsy. His beard tickled her when they hugged. Their ideas for their engagement pictures inspired me. And the final results were AMAZING. Thank you, Koye and Mitch!
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 I’ve made several wedding albums over the years. I have a feeling my best is yet to come. But THIS was so fun to make! I like to integrate and include things that are usually left behind or forgotten. A big part of that is photographing everything, but another part is putting together the album in such a way that you remember those little, cute, romantic details. With this one, I noticed a LOT of people were commenting and wishing the couple well on FaceBook. So I took that into consideration when making the album and tried to include some of those comments and people that would ordinarily be lost.
Adrian and Melissa contacted me awhile ago, looking for engagement photography in Boise. They already had a wedding photographer in Utah but wanted some sweet before-wedding photos. So we started at the Boise Train Depot, then met later in the day in McCall, Idaho.
