I was sooo excited when Brett called me to photograph him proposing to his (then girlfriend) Jackie! We arranged to meet at Redfish Lake at a certain time in a certain location. Brett found the perfect log by the lake shore to have Jackie stand on so that he could “pretend” to take a picturesque photo of her with the mountains in the background, at which point he would approach her with the ring and ask her to marry him. When I arrived near the location, I found a couple that were sitting on the beach about 100 feet away from where the proposal took place and asked them to just pretend that we were together so that Jackie wouldn’t notice me. Here are the photos from that magical afternoon:

Lauren: Sun Valley Senior

November 6, 2015

Lauren and I had a BLAST capturing her senior portaits. She is such a unique, fun girl who was open for anything. We got creative on the road and with the horses, which she absolutely loves!!

I decided to play around with video company called Animoto.  Here’s my first slideshow showcasing Madeline and Reed’s spectacular winter wedding, click on the picture to play!

Last fall I photographed Nandi and Duncan’s wedding and it was AMAZING to say the least.  Nandi grew up in the south, like myself and it wasn’t until after we met that we discovered that we both graduated from the University of Georgia!  She and Duncan are the perfect match and so was their “North Carolina meets Sun Valley, Idaho” Wedding!  Custom furniture and designs from North Carolina and Georgia were driven out for their very special wedding.  Get ready for a MEGA POST!!  One of my favorite moments was when Nandi took her first look inside the tent.  Her tears say it all!

Charlotte asked that I capture some portraits of her for promotional use for an upcoming theatrical performance she will be starring in this April in New York.  Here are some of my favorite images from our session:

Marie and Tyler were such a fun couple to spend the afternoon with and photograph!  I am elated to photograph their wedding in March here in Sun Valley!  Here are a few of my favorite images from their engagement session:

 

 

 

Misti and Jason’s wedding was, simply, amazing!  The weather worked in our favor for the day, so the ceremony was held across from the barn with haybales set up as seats (although family and friends spent a good part of the day scaring off the roaming cattle who kept sneaking in to get a taste).  I was totally in awe of Misti literally creating her dream wedding to the very intricate details.  When it became time for toasts, Misti’s Bridesmaids and friends dressed up in cute aprons and delivered red solo cups, on a platter, containing bubblies for everyone to enjoy!

Now, here’s from the Bride :)

Q:  You planned EVERY detail of your wedding, describe how you turned your dream into reality.

A: We wanted an outdoor country kicking wedding but I still wanted a touch of vintage flare. We searched and searched for a venue with the perfect rustic feel that would allow good ole boot stomping country music till the wee hours of the morning. Mission accomplished, Lazy R Ranch was a true resemblance of Jason and I’s character and love for the outdoors. I collected most of the decor from vintage, antique and thrift stores with the help of my mom and aunt Jess. My husband, Jason and dear friend Rocco went to the woods and cut down my cocktail tables and center pieces from ponderosa and aspen tress. As I continued to collect perfect dollies, milk glass and lace table clothes the entire family became inspired. My dad even got out his sewing machine and helped me make the flag banners. Everything was hand picked and made with laughter and love. Music was also an important ingredient to a perfect night. Hank Swank and the Fun Hogs got the party started and The Moon Pies had the dance floor rocking. Honestly, I had no idea what I had created and seeing my vision come to life was magical.

Q: What was your favorite moment of your wedding day?

A: The rain disappearing moments before the ceremony, the sun embracing the day and Jason’s unforgettable vows witnessed by people that support,love and inspire us was a moment I will forever hold close to my heart.

Q: Do you have any additional words you would like to add?

A: I have to say beyond the tiny details, stunning flowers, rocking good music and delicious prime rib the family and friends that came from all over the country is what made the day truly magical. Jason and I are still in awe, blessed and thankful. Thanks to each and every one of you.

Jamie and Kyler are such a fun and carefree couple.  They married at Galena Lodge and it was definitely a family affair.  Kyler’s sister did Jamie’s makeup, and the talented ladies at Third Floor Saloon created beautiful up-dos for Jamie and her best friends.  Claudia from Atkinson’s provided the flowers for the day, and Kyler’s mom arranged them.  The arbor under which Jamie and Kyler exchanged vows was built by Kyler and his Dad, Kyler and Jamie’s mother decorated it with them.  Here are some of my favorite photos from the day :)
