Oregon Coast Inspired Bridal Session This Oregon Coast Inspired Bridal Session was all about bringing Idaho talent to Oregon beaches. I had the opportunity to shoot an amazing Coastal wedding in Oregon last month and I was so lucky to have this shoot come together. This shoot was beach inspired right down to the florals […]
Inn at Spanish Head Wedding. The Oregon Coast did not disappoint. Jeremy and Chelsea’s wedding at the Inn at Spanish Head was a dream. Chelsea and my husband had worked together back when we lived in the Portland area. When I found out Chelsea was engaged I reached out to see if she needed any help with the planning process. I was more than delighted when she asked if I was available to photograph it. Chelsea has been along and watched my photography journey since it started. I was so excited to be a part of her wedding.
Chelsea and Jeremy met online and they knew they wanted a life together and they were most excited that they found each other so they can adventure together for the rest of their days. They both share the same interests of fitness and also run a business together. They recently bought a house in Happy Valley Oregon.
Their wedding was originally supposed to be last November but it because of the pandemic they moved it to this March. I had been watching the forecast for two weeks and it was supposed to RAIN and by RAIN I mean it was a 90 percent chance of rain the entire day. We lucked out the day of the wedding was overcast and a little windy but no rain. The two of them shared a first look at their ceremony location. It was special and just the two of them and they it was time for them to be married.
We had the best dinner and then the couple caught the ONLY 5 minutes of sunlight and it created some epic magical sunset portraits. I am so glad I got to share such a special time with an amazing couple. It is so exciting to see where life takes them. I am also hoping that one day my adventures will take me back to the Oregon Coast. The Inn at Spanish Head did not disappoint. I hope to visit again soon.

There is something magical about a Winter Meridian Temple Wedding. Every time I get a chance to photograph a couple at the Meridian Temple my creative soul does a happy dance. This session was a tad different than the rest. It has been a good year since I have had the opportunity to shoot at the temple. During that year aka a Global Pandemic I really pushed myself both in my creativity and my growth as a photographer. Some of my most favorite temple photos can be found HERE and HERE. I wanted to take my photos to the next level. Having not had a bride and groom get married all year I decided to take matters into my own hands and find a couple. That is where Johanna and Masen come in.
I was scrolling through the hashtag #meridiantemple and came across one of Masen’s post talking about how excited they were for their upcoming wedding. Reaching out to Johanna was a bit out of my comfort level. I asked if they would be willing to model for me before their wedding. Bless their hearts she agreed to do bridals with me having never met me or seen my work. I explained to her that I would love to GIFT them a session in return for the use of the photos. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
It is winter time at the Meridian Temple. I think the temple is beautiful anytime of the year but winter is cold and not much color in terms of the grounds. In my head I had a vision for this session. I wanted it to have a romantic timeless look to the photos. I have the best vendors in the industry. Reaching out to Courtney with Posies Floral design and told her what was going on. I knew she would create something magical. She is a flower genius. The bouquet she made was one of my favorites. This called for a color pallet that was soft and romantic and just what I was looking for. It really brightened up the gloomy winter day. She also did both the weddings that were linked in the first paragraph.
Masen and Johanna did get married a couple of days after I took their bridal photos. They were some of the sweetest people. The two of them met for the first time while serving missions for their church in Denmark. As for that meeting Johanna was sitting across the room at a zone conference. It was not until they both returned home that they discovered they had mutual friends and then a proper introduction was made. The rest is history and that is what led us to where we are today. Congratulations to the happy couple. Thank you again for allowing some random person to photograph such a special moment in time. A special Winter Meridian Temple Wedding.
What type of wedding are you planning? What type of wedding are you planning? Weddings these days are much different than they were just two years ago. When planning a wedding the first question you and your partner need to ask one another is how big of a guest list are you hoping to have. […]
A Creekside Affair is a beautiful venue located in Parma, Idaho. Parma is the cutest little farm town and has some unique charm. I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a workshop at the venue. I had seen a lot of photos from it but I was excited to put my own spin on it. This venue has so much to offer to it’s bride and groom clients. Not to mention and even has a playground for the kids if important to you.
The story of this venue is anything short of remarkable. The owner spent years making homes around the valley have beautiful landscaping he decided that he wanted his family to be out in the country so he purchased 200 acres of land to turn into the beautiful space they have today. The pond was hand dug and a labor of love. This family really poured their soul into making a beautiful venue for couples to celebrate their wedding with their friends and family.
In terms of Photography this venue is a dream. No matter the time of day you can find beautiful magical light anywhere. You can have a little bit of rustic and a lot of magical dreamy wedding photos at this venue. It really does offer a ton of variety for your photos. I look forward to getting to work at this venue and photograph an amazing couple here in the near future. in the meantime here are some of the beautiful photos from the shoots that were created during the workshop. If you are a bride to be definitely check out what this venue in Parma Idaho has to offer their couples you can find a link to their website HERE.

Hayley and Bill said I do in a very intimate Boise Idaho wedding. They were surrounded by their closest family on a very rainy Saturday in October. Hayley contacted me a couple weeks before her wedding in Boise, Idaho. We chatted about her special day and came up with a plan to capture their wedding. It was very important to Hayley that she get married in her parent’s backyard. Her dad had passed away several years back from cancer. Before he had passed he took on their childhood home backyard as a project during his treatments. He created a magical low maintenance space that was perfect for this special wedding.
Hayley and Bill are both in the healthcare field so they really wanted to keep their wedding to their immediate family. I am really enjoying these weddings they are so special. Her Brother conducted the ceremony and she had three flower girls that helped her down the aisle. Her bouquet was made by Boise at Its Best Flowers as well as the arch flowers. I loved the simple yet elegant details of this wedding.
Rainy wedding day. It rained and when I say it rained it POURED!! It’s probably the hardest I have seen it rain in a long time. I had brought clear umbrellas and I am so glad I did it added some fun photos. Also how cute is her parent’s complete with a red door. I am so thankful to be a part of such a special day. It truly was magical to witness such as special wedding. Cheers to Hayley and Bill I wish you a lifetime of happiness. What a special Intimate Boise Idaho Wedding.

Hayden and Hanna’s Minimony Wedding happened on Saturday the 29th, of August 2020. The two met a while ago while Hanna was poking him aka taking his blood. They hit it off and exchanged numbers. They decided to take advantage of Fancy That’s Minimonie package. This was such a great deal to show that love is not canceled. It was my first time ever doing something like this. I am used to spending hours and hours with the couple on their wedding day as well as getting to know them for months and months. My first interaction with Hanna was a video call two days before her wedding. I really loved how intimate this wedding was, 15 guests in total.
The venue was Coffee Paint Repeat. This is such a cute space, it was also the last wedding that will ever take place there. I cannot wait to see what this owner comes up with her next adventure. Hanna came at 12 to get her hair and makeup done Kayla the face behind Idaho Stylists. Her mom helped her in her dress and her good friend Sharon helped as well. Their ceremony was sweet and had a surprise guests deliver Hanna’s ring.
The bride and groom were then transported by Diamond Limousine to Scentsy where we had about a half hour for bridal portraits and then they were off to downtown for their one night hotel stay at Hotel 43 and dinner at Chandlers. This was such a wonderful couple and a great experience for me.
What is a Minimony and what does it include? Is a Minimony right for you? If you are looking for a small intimate wedding that has premium vendors for an amazingly affordable cost then you may want to reach out to Anna to catch her next Minimony.
