I had a BLAST photographing Amy and Scott’s camp style wedding held in Idaho City, ID.  They LOVE photography and dedicated time to capture great images in and around the historic mining town’s buildings.  Amy and Scott are regular Cross-fitters and we took a few photos to showcase that element about them.  Here are my favorite images from their wonderful wedding day!

Hello!  While I have been in Central America both for business and vacation (photos coming soon), a beautiful, intimate wedding I photographed last summer was published on Sun Valley Magazine’s Hitched Blog.  I enjoyed every moment of Kate and Blake’s intimate, family-only wedding.  My favorite quote from Kate in the article is this:  “The people and relationships are what make it special. Splurge on a great photographer and let friends and family take care of the rest.”  Ditto Kate, Ditto!

One of my resolutions for 2014 is to POST more on my blog!!  I will be dedicating Thursdays to posting photos I have taken in the past that I have never posted before!  Whether it have been an engagement session, a wedding, or family session, here we go!!

Today I decided to feature a wedding I was the second photographer for back in 2011.  I have always enjoyed working with Hillary Maybery and she has often asked why I never share any of the photos that I take while photographing weddings with her as 2nd camera.  Today, I will feature one of my favorites.  They were a beautiful, fun, outgoing couple loaded with class and style!  Here are my favorite images that I took during their wedding day:

Lindsay and Will’s gorgeous wedding took place one day after the first snowfall of this fall.  These two overcame major obstacles in the weeks leading up to the wedding which included Lindsay almost losing her dress in the Boulder, CO floods, and Lindsay missing her own rehearsal dinner due to her inbound flight getting re routed.  When I met Lindsay, I was wowed by her beauty, calmness and sweetness.  Lindsay and Will were such a joy to photograph, and they have such loving family and friends.  Here are my favorite images from their special day:

Ceremony/Reception: Knob Hill Inn

I had a blast photographing Rae and Dan’s wedding.  It began with Rae getting canoed into the ceremony by her father, then throughout the ceremony there were plenty of laughs and tears.  I got the pleasure of taking the happy couple on a little drive around the Redfish Lake property to get some great portraits.  Their wedding reception by the lodge was filled with friends, dancing, more tears and laughter (:  Here are some of my favorite images from their day.
