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!
Engagements go by so quickly (just like everything else), it's an important time to create lasting memories. Honestly, it's one of the sweetest times in life and every drop of it should be cherished and enjoyed. But some of that can get lost in the busy, in the hectic, in the planning, in the trying to stay on top of school or work a full time job.
Jenny and Galen were married on October 1st, with a ceremony and reception at Galen’s family property out in Payette, ID. While I love every wedding I get to be part of, this one has an extra special place in my heart because Jenny has been a friend of mine for years. This genuine, beautiful, honest, sweet soul has gotten me through so many ups and downs, but it was when she reconnected with Galen after years of going in separate directions that I knew she’d found something that was meant to be.
