I make art for people while I tell their love stories. I'm fascinated with creating unique and artistic portraits that will be treasured for generations. Portrait & Wedding photography Spokane-based but available world wide.

While we were in Hawaii for Sarah & Matt’s wedding we were able to meet up with a couple of our brides who live on the island. First up is Nikki & Clayton. They’re actually getting married in Spokane but Clayton is stationed in Hawaii so we didn’t think we’d have an engagement session, but we were thrilled when it worked out to go take pictures while we were there. We rushed to the beach after getting back to Oahu from Kauai & by the time we got there, it was dark. Not, “oh there’s still some light left-dark.” It was black. So dark I had to give my iPhone to Nikki to hold to her face so I could focus the camera. They were both troopers as we waited for the waves to crash & splash. :)

Then after shooting some shots in the back of Clayton’s truck on the beach, we headed straight for the put-put course. I’m guessing there’s usually a little competitiveness to their competitions, but this time they were on their best behavior. It was a blast watching them interact with each other as we moved from hole to hole. Even though the light at the course was about as bad as I’ve ever shot in, it’s easy to see the sweetness that exists between the two of them. One of the highlights was that right after the session Nikki & Clayton took Gina & I out to dinner. It was awesome just getting to hang out for a while (the pulled pork BBQ wasn’t too bad either).

We get to go back in May for Chelsey & Barry’s wedding (yes, I have the best job in the world) so maybe we’ll have to get some more traditional ‘Hawaii’ photos of the two of them—maybe with a couple of bulldogs—then.

Yet another super awesome incredible wedding to post! The whole time I worked through these photos I had a smile on my face. Every once in a while I had to take breaks from it just to give my cheeks a rest. It was a bold move having a wedding & reception in the early fall outside. Amber & Alex must have paid somebody off, because the weather was about as perfect as could be—even after the sun went down.

Even more important than the weather were the great moments that occurred throughout the day. Hopefully you get the same feelings looking at these that I had while I was following Amber & Alex around on their big day.

For those of you paying close attention, you’ll notice that this is the second Glover Mansion wedding in a row. It’s such a great venue for a wedding. For all of you future brides still looking for a place to get married, give Ali or Kellie a call. They’ll take great care of you. Then give me a call right after that. ;)

For photographers: Make sure you have Talking Carl on your iPhone for the kids. It will take those super shy kids & turn them in to camera hams. If you photographers have any other kid-friendly iPhone apps you use on a wedding day tell me in the comments.

Big thanks to Alissa Floyd for helping out with the photography!
