Sunny + Burton Sneak Peek | September 3, 2017

elegant. cowboy meets modern flare. outdoor adventure. 

Just a few words to describe Sunny and Burton's absolutely stunning wedding day soiree!  I can't even begin to choose which photos to post, I almost had to close my eyes and let the mouse do the picking.  So here is a selection, a few extra of Sunny because, well, she was gorgeous and elegant.

Here in the PNW, we have been hit pretty hard by fires and, therefore, smoke-filled skies on and off for the past 6 weeks. That was the case on Brad and Amanda’s day, but that didn’t hold them back from staging the wedding celebration they had always dreamed of. If anything, it gave them a unique element to their day and a natural light filter.

Courtney and Donavan both have hearts for hospitality. It is literally ingrained in everything they are. Courtney especially continued to check on me throughout the day. She was so gracious and accommodating, asking if I needed anything and if the timeline was inconvenient. . . . I had to laugh and say, “It’s your day, girl, you can do whatever you want!”

It’s just so much a part of who she is and who they are together, so it came naturally to them to love on their guests and wedding party just as much as everyone was loving on them!

Just a few things that made up Amanda and Brad's gorgeous wedding - even if it was surrounded in smoke from the north, it made it even more dreamy and the perfect day for these two!

Holli and Mark | Old Idaho Penitentiary Engagement

I’m always honored when anyone asks me to capture their love, joy, and unity—but it’s extra special when it’s a friend. Holli and I met years ago in a boot camp class and have been friends ever since. We both have a bit of a competitive streak, so the whole time we were in that class, we did everything in our power to beat each other out. Who can jump higher? Who can run faster? Who can lift heavier weights? We were always looking to outdo each other—though now that I am the boot camp instructor, I get to yell at her and tell her to jump higher! ;)

Have I mentioned how much I love weddings?! It’s amazing how after hundreds and hundreds of years, after millions and millions of weddings on Planet Earth, not one is the same. Each couple has their own story, their own personalities and their own flair. My second shooter, Debbie Brown, my good friend and owner of Brown Studios  and I loved being part of this truly unique experience!
