Coeur d’Alene Engagement Session | Coeur d’Alene Beach Engagement Session

I loved getting out with this couple to do an engagement session in Coeur d’Alene, ID. We walk around the downtown area and were able to go on the worlds longest boardwalk which is right in front of the Coeur d’Alene Resort and next to Hagadone Corporations. It’s a beautiful little area in the CDA and one of my favorite places to ride my bike down to and jog around. The Coeur d’Alene beach was also a great location to grab a few shots. Have I told lately that I love Coeur d’Alene. It’s one of the best places on earth.

Talus Rock Retreat Wedding | Sandpoint Wedding | Coeur d’Alene Wedding Photography

I had the treat of recording my dear friends wedding this spring. They used to be playmates when they were children when their grandparents lived next to each other. This wedding as been a long time coming and I am so happy that these two found each other! They are a match made in heaven and I wish them both all the best in their adventures to come.

I was so excited to shoot my very first wedding at Talus Rock Retreat in Sandpoint, ID. This is a beautiful place found in a secluded spot just outside of Sandpoint. It’s a great place to have a wedding ceremony and reception. You are surround by beautiful views of the mountains, a quaint little pond, horses and cabins – this is my type of place! Lindsey and Travis rented the entire house out and stayed there the night before the wedding. Having a backyard wedding is a bit of a gamble in the spring time but this wedding ended up having beautiful weather! They opted to invite only immediate family to the ceremony which made it very intimate and memorable. The reception took place at the grooms place of work, a helicopter hanger. Timberline Helicopters Hangar transformed their working garage space into a rustic tree covered, open floor plan reception hall. It was wonderful!

Coeur d’Alene Business Photography – Headshots and Environmental Coverage.

The owner, Brian Babb of White Pine Wealth contacted me a few months back to update their business photography needs. By doing an environmental shoot of the office and updating current headshots of the owner, we were able to provide the world wide web with new and fresh photography of his business. Having updated photography is key to establishing a professional web presence to potential clients that are looking to find you through the internet.

Engagement Session | Yuki & Cristina – Oh, so cute!

I had so much fun with these two love birds on a cold afternoon this past fall. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to shoot their wedding in Nashville this coming October, it’s going to be epic. I am gearing up for a busy photography season here in Coeur d’Alene and am excited to be able to shoot some beautiful engagement sessions in and around the area. Coeur d’Alene is located on Lake Coeur d’Alene which makes the city a cute little destination for tourists in the summer months. Barbara Walters called the city “a little slice of Heaven” and included it in her list of most fascinating places to visit. This engagement session is a great example of what you might get with lake views, water and lots of love during your engagement session.

Restaurant Photography – The Noni Wine Bar

Moving across the country has thus far been good. I am proud to say I drove from coast to coast (actually, I didn’t drive one time – my husband drove the entire time), from Boston to Washington state. I never thought I would be able to say that. My husband and I currently live in Coeur d’Alene Idaho. We love it here. Views of the mountains can be seen most days and we take walks on Lake Coeur d’Alene almost everyday. Our house is about one mile from downtown Coeur d’Alene which is one of the cutest towns in the northwest. My office is still in our home and Ryan has an office in the downtown area (if you are in Washington State or Massachusetts and you need a small business lawyer, he’s your man – Check out his site, Ryan Bleek Law).

With this move comes a much-needed change of pace. Although I am still embracing the wedding business and booking clients for Washington State, Idaho, and Massachusetts, I have started to work more in the business world as well. A couple of months ago I did a job for a small business owner in Priest River, ID. The Noni Wine Bar is one of the best inland northwest wine bars. If you are looking for a place with a great ambiance and relaxing atmosphere, you have to go visit the Noni Wine Bar. From the decor, to the people, this place feels like home! Reach out to the owners and get to know them, they are great people and will cater to your every need. Typically they have a happy hour from 3-5 ($3 drafts and $1 off house pours) and weekly entertainment.

Below you can check out the Noni Wine Bar and a menu I created for them for a Valentines dinner.
