What a wonderful announcement from some great WSU swing dance friends! Come take a look where we took the announcement pictures!
A common question I receive is….”Can I get the digital images from my portrait session?” Some Spokane photographers do not include digital image files in their product offerings, I do. But do not let the availability of digital files blind you to to the real tangible value of printed pictures. Let your family portraits, senior pictures, engagement and wedding photos shine in real life and keep the digital files as a backup copy of your special memories.
Spokane, Medical Lake, Cheney high school seniors, if you are going to college and have any interest in photography; you need to submit for this scholarship that is just to simple to pass up!
I love how the great outdoors becomes the background and context for the refreshing weddings I photograph. Choosing a wedding venue is often the first thing a newly engaged couple begins to research for their celebration. Here are some helpful hints for when you start looking for that perfect outdoor wedding venue.
Are you an adventurer and a fun, romantic couple? I would love to be your Spokane engagement photographer! Check out my home page and engagement portfolio!
Congrats 2018 EWU Senior Meagan!
As a financing and accounting major who enriched her studies through tutoring, Meagan found herself spending many long hours in the JFK library at Eastern Washington University. In her graduation photos we pushed that theme of the library and textbook studies. Meagan had a rich college experience living on and near campus by being a part of intramural teams, serving beer at EWU football games, and spending summers floating at Fish Lake. Meagan is set to accomplish big things as she already has a job lined up with the Navy!
In front of the camera, Meagan was a natural model. I gave a photo location and she took it from there with her many poses. I personally like to see how weird of a face I can make in the mirror...
It was a pleasure meeting her and her boyfriend who helped by carrying props and adding support as we stopped for photos at Showalter Hall, Martin Hall, the JFK Library and the Eastern Washington University sign at the heart of campus..
Love at first injury
Whitworth University athletic injuries built a bond of love for this lovely couple. He played football and she played soccer. Both were injured in their respective sports and were sent to rehabilitation classes. With time away from their sports they were available to talk. Talk they did! As a result of all that talking, he proposed a lifetime of them together. She said Yes!
I was honored to photograph their wedding at Beacon Hill Catering and Events in Spokane, new post to come!
Lawson Gardens. Easily the best kept secret garden in the entire Palouse region!
Located in the heart of Pullman, WA sits this romantic 13 acre paradise filled with a mix of formal and wild gardens. The garden was started in 1985 as a dedication to Mr. Lawson’s first wife, Alice and has become a place where love grows and flourishes for many couples. Over the years, the community and international guests have played a role in the development and upkeep of the gardens. My wife and I spent countless hours here throughout our college dating years and return to the gardens whenever we have the chance.
Lawson Gardens is a unique and popular location for summer and fall weddings. And at a rental rate of $250 for a 4 hour block - it is a great way to save money! The gardens can be rented from 7:30 am - 8:30 pm. There are three formal terraces that can easily provide seating for 50-400 guests while other areas can provide intimate settings for as little as two. The reflecting pool and gazebo provide a lovely backdrop for wedding ceremonies and photographs.
As a photographer, I love the colors, textures and deep richness of these gardens. Sweeping paths and leading lines create for exquisite and dramatic images. Lawson Gardens is the perfect place for you to write the memory of your first day as husband and wife.
If you are interested in matching colors to the gardens, color scheme and setup information can be obtained from the Pullman Parks Department.
Images shown here were taken in early spring as the new leaves and blossoms began to emerge.
