Aaron and Annette are such a sweet couple. They are so kind to each other, and are so obviously in love. We went out to Tubbs Hill in Coeur d'Alene, and initially had to wait for the heavy rain to pass! Once the rain stopped, we had a great time hiking around and finding the little beach that was special to Annette. This couple was great and was so open to any direction I gave them and any pose I wanted to try. I can't wait to photograph their wedding in July!
I think Chris wins fiance of the year after agreeing to do a second engagement session! Cherish and Chris wanted to do a spring session to celebrate their last few months as an engaged couple and to celebrate just how amazing Spokane looks this time of year. We went to Indian Canyon park in west Spokane, and hiked through a creek to a little waterfall, then hiked/climbed straight up the steep cliff-side! When I say I'll go anywhere for your photos, I mean it! Next we went to Palisades park to catch the beautiful golden sunset as well as an incredible view of downtown Spokane. This is easily one of my favorite spots in Spokane for photos, and I can't wait to see Cherish and Chris at their wedding in July!
Tessa was so on-top of getting her graduation photos done that she contacted me over a year ago! This totally suits this hard working girl, though! Tessa and I went to high school together, and it was so cool to get to see her again and see how life has gone for her in the last few years. She worked her tail off, graduating with a degree that I sure never would have attempted! I think the stack of books she has from just the last two years is more than all of the books I had after four years of college! Tessa's boyfriend Dane joined us for this session, and we managed to get him in a couple of photos as well! Congratulations, Tessa!
Jackie and Taylor are such fun people to be around! So many goofy faces and loads of laughs really made their Mount Spokane and Riverside State Park sessions a blast. The love they have for each other is so strong and so incredible, and I can't wait to see them on their wedding day this summer!
Angela and I had no idea what was coming. When Randy asked if we could take a photo of him kneeling down, Angela looking excited, only to be disappointed when he began to tie his shoe, we agreed, thinking this was a silly request. However, once he was done tying his shoe he pulled out a ring and proposed FOR REAL!!! I am so blessed to have been the one to capture Angela's true surprise and joy. I have never seen a couple so happy to be together than in that moment. Lake Coeur d'Alene's gorgeous scenery only added to the romance of this session; the mountains and trees framing out the couple like they're the only people in the world. Congratulations to Angela and Randy!
Chris and Cherish are so sweet, and clearly in love. We went all the way to the top of Mount Spokane (also known as the sketchiest drive of my life - no guard rail!) for their romantic Pacific Northwest engagement session. They were so candid and natural together, it made my job easy! I am so happy to have gotten to take their photos in this beautiful setting!

Again, taking some beautiful engagement photos at the Govan schoolhouse on an unexpectedly windy summer day. My cousin Chynna and her fiance Matt wanted to do their photos out there because the high school where they met is only a couple minutes down the road from the schoolhouse! Congratulations to you both, and I look forward to your wedding in 2017!
