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.
Coolant is about a couple who gets stuck on the side of the road. They have to learn to work together to get out of the sticky situation. These were a few of the behind-the-scenes pictures from this weekend! Thanks to everyone who made this possible! Ronn, Dana, Joe, Audrey and her mom, Abe and his mom and sister, Riley, Bryce, Eddie, Faith, Scott, and Talia! You were all awesome!! Matt and I couldn’t have done it without you!
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.
Being a wedding photographer in Boise is not always easy. But Ami and Jonathan were awesome and planned everything out so well! Ami is an amazing, bright person and their friends reflected their personalities, both individually and as a couple. The wedding was held at Sandstone Vineyards in Star, Idaho. Everyone got ready at the Downtown Marriot in Boise. The gorgeous dress was created by Baby Doll Shop. Hair by Ariana O’Leary, makeup by Alyssa, ring by Precious Metal Arts. Working with all these amazing people, particularly Chyrell Debenham (the Day of Coordinator) was such a pleasure. Vince with VCI Wedding DJ’s was also very helpful and working together with these two was an amazing experience. Congratulations you two! It’s super obvious that you love each other a lot, I’m glad you’re married. 🙂
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 doing event photography in Meridian awhile ago for a “learning about the government” convention. A bunch of kids got together and learned directly from senators, financial managers, professors, etc. One line kept coming up that bothered me. “What makes America the greatest is…” fill in the blank. Because of our constitution. Our rights. Whatever.
So we sat down on the floor together. Away from the noise of the reunion, my little subject calmed down and started to get more comfortable. I was in the middle of photography for a crazy family reunion in Boise, Idaho, and was required to get pictures of certain family members. My last one was on the floor beside me, and had successfully evaded my camera all day. So, as I do a lot, I tried to make him more comfortable by showing him how my camera worked, the pictures that I had taken, and how to click the shudder button.
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.
Wishing these two all the best! As an Idaho wedding photographer, I love getting to shoot out in nature and in all the amazing locations that are hidden around the valley, and Fox Canyon has some beautiful gardens and an epic view. I really enjoyed getting to know David and Sharla and then getting to meet the amazing people around them!
