I’ve said it 100 times and I’ll say it again, “Confidence is the sexiest thing a woman can have, it is much sexier than any body part.” I’m not sure where I first heard or found that quote, but I have fallen in love with it. Offering Spokane boudoir photography, I get to experience different levels of confidence in many different women. All shapes and sizes trust me to make them feel comfortable while they pose in lingerie in front of my camera…what an honor and compliment!!! This specific beautiful woman whom I am featuring on my blog today, has made such an impression on me that I know I will never forget her. We will call her Miss S.
When Miss S. contacted me for boudoir photos, she mentioned that she wanted to put a spin on it. She was a new mother and wanted to document her new body. No longer did she have her pristine, smooth, unstretched skin. No longer did she fit into her pre-baby lingerie that she once posed in for previous boudoir photos. She was a new woman. She is now a beautiful mother who takes pride in her drastically changed body. She asked if I would be willing to do such a thing. Damn straight I was!! WOW!!
When Miss S. strutted into my downtown Spokane photo studio I was simply enamored by her confidence. We talked about her new 6-month old baby girl and how Miss S. wanted to show her daughter one day that beauty doesn’t have to be a perfect size 2. Beauty doesn’t have to be pristine. Beauty is you, how you are today. Confidence is beauty. You are beauty and your life is beautiful. Again, wow. Miss S. is already preparing for her daughter’s mentality and body image at 6-months old. Good job and props to you Miss S. I admire your principles and what you are instilling into your little Miss S. All women can take a lesson from you by embracing their natural beauty and spreading it to all of those around them. You’ve infected me with your confidence and I thank you for that xoxo

If you know me at all, you know that my husband and I have a great height difference, and I love it. So when I meet up with a couple that has a pretty sizable height difference, I really look forward to the different angles that I get to use to capture the couple together. This outdoor engagement session was even more than what I could ask for in a shoot, as Amanda and Josh gave me a great combination of laughter, emotion and true romance, and it was perfect.
These two were definitely fun to work with on their engagement session in People’s Park in Spokane. The weather was amazing, giving us crisp sunshine and a golden glow upon the ground and leaves that was to die for. They let loose and got into the shoot with some fun poses, which brought out the natural and genuine smiles from both of them. Besides being a great couple, the backdrop of these two was gorgeous! Offering multiple textures of grasses and changing leaves, with their perfectly chosen outfits, gave each shot a different look and feel. It was perfect to say the least, and I am excited to photograph their wedding!

Photographing weddings at new venues is always a thrill. This gorgeous Settler’s Creek wedding was no exception. Being a wedding photographer in Spokane, the majority of weddings of course take place in Spokane. It’s a treat when my couples take me outside of the area, even if it is only to Coeur d’Alene, ID. If you haven’t been to a wedding at Settler’s Creek, then you probably aren’t familiar with it. When I first arrived, my first thought was, “Wow. I could shoot here for hours!” Good thing I was there for a wedding, because that’s exactly what we did! The wooden gazebos, red barns, weathered farm tools, towering silos, bistro lit dance floor, and green meadows is a wedding photographer’s dream venue.
Now, with that being said…take a look at my couple. Let’s just say, it was tough to take a bad picture with these two and the setting we were in. Jackie and Eric (and their bridal party) were some of the most photogenic people I have worked with. To say we had a good time working with all of them would be an understatement. One of my favorite parts of a wedding day is allowing the bridal party to be themselves and take a fun picture with their bride or groom. It’s always a kick to see what best friends come up with. I belive we were in tears multiple times during Jackie & Eric’s day.
Enjoy the gorgeous wedding photos we captured for these two, and leave a comment to give them some love!

This Spokane Convention Center wedding is definitely in my top 10 for the year. Not only was the couple over-the-top genuine and appreciative, their families were just the same. Being welcomed into two families with open arms on a wedding day is one of the best rewards as a wedding photographer. Stress levels can run high on the big day, but when I can feel the evident respect and trust from everyone around me, the stress is almost non-existent. So I thank you Mummas and Bergers, you guys were the best!! You provided the perfect environment to achieve beautiful wedding images for Kylie and Ryan. Now, onto the details of this picture perfect wedding day! Kylie and her bridesmaids started out at the Glen Dow Academy to have her blonde hair tussled up delicately by Sadie Clemenson. When Kylie asked my opinion whether or not she should don the jewel encrusted headband, my response was, “Absolutely, a bride can never have too much bling!” Next stop was to visit the talented Julie Farley with The Makeup Studio. But first we had to snap a candid photo of all the girls sporting their custom-made bridesmaid tanktops on the streets of downtown Spokane. After Julie touched Kylie with her skilled gift of makeup-artistry, we headed to the final destination for our Spokane Convention Center Wedding. This was my first ceremony that took place on the floating bridge of the Convention Center, and I loved it! The bridge created an intimate seating area for family but still allowed for a phenomenal view for the hundreds of other guests seated behind them. Kylie chose an elegant alter piece from Belle Journeé Events to accentuate the focal point and the entire ceremony was lit by the evening summer sun. Breathtaking. The vast venue was decorated with precise care thanks to Beth and Lauren with Design By Occasion. There were floral arrangements at every step and crystals on each table to help glamorize the day. These two women expertly coordinated the design and flow of the day with perfection! Although the hot summer temperature did not drop off once the sun went down, we still partied and celebrated the couple’s union on the Spokane Convention Center Rooftop. Lance with Big Show Mobile Entertainment provided one of the best lighting set-ups I have seen at the convention center. A custom monogram embellished the dancefloor and the tents were splashed with Kylie and Ryan’s wedding colors. This definitely set the expectations of a party to remember. Once the dance music began, there was no stopping this group…until of course closing time came. We saw Kylie and Ryan off with a line of their closest family and friends showering them with confetti as they shouted their congratulations and love. A perfect ending to a perfect day. Congrats you two!! xoxoxo

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!
