I always love a backyard wedding. I especially love it when it’s the home of the bride or groom. Something about that makes it a little extra special and seems to play the role of a VIP wedding guest as it seems to heighten emotions a little bit. It’s also a plus when it’s an extraordinarily beautiful property overlooking the Spokane River canyon. You’d never know that it was one of the most annoyingly windy days we’ve had since last winter’s storms.

Being able to capture Nichole & Steven’s wedding day was fantastic for me because they’re two very dynamic people, but the love that their friends and family have for them is so abundant, that it makes my job a little easier. Add to that one of the prettiest dogs I’ve seen, some lovely details, and a fantastic party and I ask how could the photos not be this special.

I figured I should blog a couple of engagement sessions since I still shoot them in between all of the weddings. I’ve had to stop blogging everything I shoot out of sheer lack of time, but as a consolation, I’m still blogging every wedding.

I met up with Patsy & Kevin on Kevin’s boyhood friend’s amazing property & we wandered around taking pictures as the light went from great to amazing. How happy do you thing I was when I saw the pond & row boat? I’m thinking with a little work, this place would be a great venue for weddings (I’ve certainly seen worse). I’m thinking ceremonies in front of the barn or in the field & receptions in the barn. What do you think?
