Three years ago, these two tied the knot on the Summer Solstice - with vows stemming from Carl Sagan - zodiac themed seating charts and centerpieces - and frankly, one of the sweetest and most authentic ceremonies I've been privileged to witness. So, today, Christy + AJ, happy anniversary! I wish you (and your sweet little family), only the best in all the years to come. Cheers!
Eleven years ago, I never planned to stay in Idaho for the rest of my twenties, well into my thirties. Love does strange things - and life is what happened to me while I was busy making other plans for sure. Being a storyteller for couples in love I find that now I'm inspired by golden hour light from Idaho sunsets and the rough + wild high desert terrain. I can't wait to share what I'm turning that inspiration into! - (hint... this engagement shoot will be released soon...) What's inspiring you to keep moving in the direction of your dreams today?
Ran 5 miles, cleaned my house, and baked cupcakes. Just kidding. I'm sitting at my desk drinking coffee and attacking my unending to do list. So tell me, what imaginary things did you cross off your list over the #weekend?
Summer is in full swing and has me so excited for the weddings coming soon. I've had many people ask what makes my favorite clients my #favorite ? Overflowing with P E R S O N A L I T Y Up for anything on their wedding day and super A D V E N T U R O U S Their love is the kind people dream of and they live life out loud and A U T H E N T I C A L L Y
Spent last night with @stephnicolew and her handsome man shooting through sunset for their #destinationengagementsession - I'm dying as I comb through them today. Seriously, you two are the sweetest couple and I'm absolutely thrilled for your wedding! 🎉💕
I'm enamored with the beauty of the organic creations that come from @rustandthistlefloral - I can't even call them arrangements. They're to die for. I'm considering creating a section of my budget for 'stunning florals' just to have some pretty in my home. I have to ask - what's your favorite flower + color? Hands down I've LOVED brightly colored snapdragons since I was a little girl.
I love, love, LOVE that trends are taking us back to nature, natural materials, and reusable materials. This wooden watch is killer by itself for the groom - and the perfect men's accessory for a wedding in a mountain meadow. This watch was found on @etsy - let's be honest, isn't that where everything we need comes from now? What's your favorite #weddingshop on Etsy? #idahodestinationwedding
When I daydream about Ali's wedding (in at least 30 years) I always tear up at the thought of my little girl having found her person in life and how proud and full of joy for her I'll be on that day. I've only seen a mother daughter dance at weddings a handful of times, and I am absolutely in love with them. The first time I saw a bride and her mother share a dance full of smiles, tears, laughter, and so much love, I knew if I ever had a baby girl, we too would share a dance at her wedding. #happymothersday
Take the time to pause and enjoy each other on your wedding day. Grab a drink for each of you, find a quiet corner, and drink each other in between the chaos. • • • • • #destinationweddingphotographer #boiseweddingphotographer #idahoweddingphotographer #authenticweddingphotography #drinks #shakennotstirred #modernwedding #boisewedding #realwedding #bonvivantstudios #yourlovemylens
