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.

I’ve been lucky recently to spend a lot of time at the top of Schweitzer Mountain for weddings. It’s always an outstanding experience—even if the weather decides to play games. Fortunately that wasn’t the case during Rachel & Drew’s wedding day. I can’t really say too much beyond what the photos say other than to point out that it was an emotion-filled day, the top of the mountain was gorgeous, and the party at the end of the night was fantastic!


I always love when I show up to a wedding and see that couples whose weddings I’ve photographed are there! This wedding there were 3 beside the day’s bride. Ellen, Rachel, Lindsey, & Allison (who had to leave before I got a chance to get this photo). Rachel and Drew076

But sometimes, it’s more open and visible to the camera. Then some other times, it’s everywhere. This is one of those weddings. Every time I turned around there was another sweet moment between people who are thrilled for two people who are beginning their lives together.
