A perfect venue for the perfect couple. Tim & Courtney are the types that think outside the box when it comes to wedding planning. This couple strived to find a unique wedding venue in the area to reflect their personalities. They weren’t looking for the typical wedding venue and knew that once they looked at the Bellingham Ferry Terminal that this was to be their wedding venue. The Bellingham Cruise Terminal is one of the best venues in the Pacific Northwest because of its private party room, The Dome Room. This room is available to rent for weddings and is set right next to the ferries and water front which make for breathtaking views. Selecting a venue with natural beauty is key to keeping your decorating budget low, there isn’t much need to decorate if your view speaks for itself. Tim and Courtney were a no-fuss bride and groom and decided to see each other before hand which allowed ample time to do bride and groom portraits. They turned out to be some of my favorites over the year because of it, aren’t they cute?!!!
This was such a beautiful wedding to be a part of. The setting is in central Washington in the fields of a vineyard near the Columbia River called Cave B Estate Winery. Cave B Estate Winery is an award-winning boutique winery that combines dramatic Columbia River Gorge views and the sophistication of a vineyard setting with spa, restaurant, and estate winery. The winery overlooks the Columbia River and has breathtaking views as it sits 900 feet above the river. This wedding was a dream, although it was an April wedding it was perfect weather with a beautiful bride and groom. The great thing about the Cave B Winery is that the venue is so beautiful there is not much need to decorate beyond what you already see.

This wedding was a dream. Ben & Kendall are two cutie pies and are so fun around people and each other. Their Spokane wedding was held on one of those perfect September days. Kendall DIY’ed the entire wedding and spent so much of her time making every little detail perfect. Their wedding style had a “Glammed up Industrial” look. The wedding ceremony took place in the chapel at Whitworth College and it was stunning. After the wedding we headed to one of Spokanes favorite spots, the Barrister Winery. This place is a photographers dream, or at least mine. Barrister Winery is a 100 year old warehouse in the downtown area of Spokane. It has exposed brick walls, weathered beams and old wood floors. Like I said, my dream – everything was vintage. They held their cocktail hour outside under hand made heart garland and a blue skies. The decorations were meticulously set up by Ali Messer of Design By Soiree, one of Spokanes best wedding planners. The flowers were also stunning and delivered by Just Roses Plus. Oh, and that dessert bar which was so beautifully displayed was made by the Dessert Bar and the food by Beacon Hill Events. All in all, it was a day to be remembered.
Family portrait sessions are great for capturing moments in time as each member of the family grows and changes. Photography records the different years, looks, fashions and faces of each family member. I adore looking back on my family’s portrait sessions, and I am very glad my parents took the time and made us all do them.
Not only are these photos fun to look at now, but growing up they created a feeling of connectedness to my family and a sense of security by seeing photos of the whole family together displayed around the house. A family photo also cultivates confidence in oneself, like “Hey, my parents think I am worthy enough to have a picture of me on the wall.” In the same way, I think that displaying family portraits of the family around the house gives the children a sense of security in the family and relationships within the family. Anyway, I will forever be an advocate of doing family portraits for all these reasons and more.
These photos were taken in a little field in Coeur d’Alene Idaho. We were going to go the beach but decided to keep it simple and do the entire shoot in one area. I am finding that less is more for family shoots. There really isn’t a need to walk or drive all over the place for family photography. Most families, especially those with young children, don’t have the patience to do a shoot that will be more than a 30 minute session. That is why picking one place with several different backdrops is important to being able to get the shoot done in a timely matter.
Coeur d’Alene family photography sessions are available upon request. Shoot time: 30 minutes. Location: Coeur d’Alene, ID. Cost: $250.
Here’s a few of our family portraits when I was a kid. You’re welcome!
