Romantic Wedding Invite Pretties

Tis the season for paper pretties. As a wedding photographer, nothing makes me happier than having the privilege to be a part of the entire wedding planning process. I love it when my brides trust me with doing their wedding jewelry or invitation suite design. It helps me get immersed in the feeling and design of the day before I’m there shooting.

I’m so beyond excited to shoot Ashley and Joe’s wedding this Sprunger (that’s a Spring/Summer hybrid). It’s going to be a gorgeous, romantic sparkly day. Ashley has a really solid vision of what her big day will be like which made it really easy to design her wedding suite. Ashley is my boss’s daughter at Stoltz Marketing Group so the pressure was on to make these gorgeous for her. I couldn’t be more pleased with how they came out. They SCREAM Ashley.  Glitter and lace baby.

Printing: HiTech Color
Embossing: Bindery Services

Hey Ashley, speed that wedding up. I can’t WAIT!

Rachel + Mike // Foggy Spokane Engagement Session

BAH! Heart heart heart heart. These two are really, really special. Two of the sweetest people you will ever meet. Michael (Mookie) is the younger brother of my dear friend, Katie. You might remember Katie from such episodes as she got married. He’s crazy creative, just like big sissy. I was so excited when I heard that he proposed to his gorgeous, lovely, Rachel over the holidays with 80 handmade cranes strung across an old chapel. No. Big. Deal. Yeah.

It was a chilly day in Spokane with no sun in sight. We started our session playing around in quite possibly the most amazing store on the planet, Artemis. (Run there now). Rachel and Mike finally had to drag me out of there. Then we just mosied the streets for a bit before heading out to Rachel’s mom’s house on the Spokane river. On the way there we stopped to shoot in a field. All of the sudden a herd of buffalo ran across up to the fence. GO GO GO. Hurry. To the fence. Um I die. Are you kidding me? Most amazing happenstance ever perhaps? We got to use some of the cranes that he proposed with. While we were hanging them I realized they were made from love notes that these two crazy cats had written one another through the course of their relationship. How are these two real?

You two make me melt inside. I adore you both and can’t wait for your special day this summer!
