I can say that there’s no better way to spend my birthday than driving down to Lewiston, Idaho & shooting a wonderful wedding.

It was a pleasure to photograph Katie & Olin’s wedding. I’m knocking on wood, but the weather couldn’t have been better. The forecast wasn’t giving us a feeling of optimism & the days leading up to the big day were all rain-soaked as well. The warm sun shone down & it got better as we were getting set for a portrait outside the Lewis Clark Plaza Hotel the clouds started to come in, lending us some drama for the night portrait, & making me happy.

I had a great time celebrating with the couple & their friends and family which came from all over to witness the event. The prep all took place overlooking the Washington Idaho border aka the Snake River at the bride’s parent’s beautiful home. The shopping took place at the beauty supply store by Katie’s sister Ellen. I still think she ‘stole’—or allowed her sweatshirt to steal—the lost eyelash as an excuse to buy Koen some new baby shoes. We then took some portraits as we walked (!) down to the Lewis Clark Hotel Plaza where the ceremony & reception took place.

Thanks to Katie & Olin & their families for making me feel so welcome (and for the birthday cake)!
