Continuing on into this years wedding season, Spokane’s Glover Mansion was definitely a hot spot for weddings, and Sarah and Nick filled the mansion with some great memories. These two rocked the Glover Mansion this spring, and their reception was one of the most energetic Spokane wedding’s I have ever seen, especially with the moves of the groom. Now I must say, it wasn’t just their reception that was high energy and full of laughs, it really did start from the beginning of the day.
They had a small bridal party, consisting of the beautiful bride Sarah’s sister and Nick’s hilarious best friend, that kept the day energetic and moving smoothly. The four of them cracked jokes, nailed some epic dance moves, let their inner superhero shine and were willing to do the wave to get some awesome photos to capture their great sense of humor and excitement for their day. It is truly couple’s like these two that make extra long wedding days feel like they fly by.
They also had some killer details that were truly personalized; like their candy bar with dated to-go containers, their shoes with their wedding date sewn into them, and their bright color green/blue that was seen throughout everything. Their ceremony was sweet, humorous, and personal just for them, which always gives me some exceptional photo opportunities. I couldn’t have asked for more details because they brought some great ones for me to capture.
These two were so much fun to work with and their wedding was awesome. Thank you for letting me be apart of your special day Sarah and Nick!

It might have been awhile since you have seen a full black and white photo session, but let me tell you this one is worth the wait. As anyone and everyone knows I love my black and white portraits, they are edgy, romantic, powerful and dramatic, which is what I love most about them. The drama and romance that I can capture when using black and white, can truly take your breath away and this session doesn’t disappoint.
I booked Jackie at the Bridal Festival this winter, and I knew her enthusiasm, charm and beauty where going to make photographing her and her fiancé a breeze. When I met her other half, Eric, I just knew it couldn’t go wrong. These two were great! We wandered the streets of downtown Spokane, strolled across the bridges and found some unique little spots to stop and capture their love for one another. The best part of this shoot was being able to have Spokane behind them as their backdrop. The city added so much detail and textural contrasts to these two that I just had to publish their images in black and white to show the stunning backdrop and their love for each other.
I am so looking forward to working with these two as we get closer to their wedding day, and then being there to capture their special day.

When we have time at a wedding, I’ve been trying to create a GIF for your viewing pleasure…and of course for experimenting. These two GIFs were a riot to create. They didn’t exactly turn out how I had imagined, but I think they may be better thanks to our goofball best man Therefore, we now have a category for Wedding GIF Bloopers This one was suppose to be a simple motion GIF where each member did the wave while the others watched, I’m kicking myself for not shooting more of their laughter!
Now this one, my biggest mistake was not grabbing my tripod AND telling Matt to stay in one spot while he danced. I had a hard time keeping the camera still while laughing at this party so had to fill in some background in Photoshop. Not exactly a keeper when we’re talking technical stuff, but the emotion and memories make it a keeper.
