I’m so pumped to be able to share photos from the ever-adorable Kaite & Matt’s wedding at the incredible Suncadia Resort! I almost feel bad trying to put words down that match the photos of the day. Everywhere I looked was another place that I wanted to make more photos. I figure after 7 or 8 more weddings there, I might have to start re-using ideas, but until then, all I see is endless possibilities. **extra special thanks here to the bride and groom for letting me grab them for a few minutes toward the end of their reception to make one of my favorite photos ever. Once I saw that hallway, couch, and chandelier, I knew there was an awesome photo just waiting to be made**
Since one of my favorite people was the matron of honor, and the families of the bride and groom were so welcoming to one another as well as to me, it felt like I was just among friends and I happened to bring my camera. Thanks to my friend Chris for coming along in one of the rare instances where I used a second shooter. It was fun to see a little different angle of the day.
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.
