So excited to share some photos that tell the story of Melissa & Justin’s wedding day at the incredible property and area surrounding The Golf Club At Black Rock on Lake Coeur d’Alene in northern Idaho! Super cool waterfalls, the greatest men’s dressing room in the world, a fantastic rustic barn, and finally a dance routine by Melissa & Justin to entertain everyone!
Such a fantastic day and for me it was a treat to be at this wedding because there were so many other couples there whose weddings I’d previously photographed! That’s what happens when I get to photograph so many amazing couples. Amazing people tend to hang out with other amazing people!
I can’t wait to get back to Black Rock again. There are so many photographic opportunities, that one or two weddings won’t give me enough time to even scratch the surface.

A few weeks back I jumped on a plane over to Seattle with my eldest (they each get to take turns) to meet with a couple of brides who’s weddings I can’t wait to shoot, and while I was there I got to shoot a couple of family sessions. The extra cool part of this was both the dads in the family sessions are two of my best friends in the world & have been for about as long as I care to remember. Since I live a few hundred miles away I don’t get to see them nearly enough & it was great to hang out with them & their awesome wives & adorable kids.
The weather rained the entire weekend—with the exception of the hours I spent shooting—so the sessions were wet but not rainy—thankfully. The sessions took place at one of my favorite parks, Tumwater Falls Park in Olympia. If you live on the west side of Washington make sure you visit & when you do, make sure you take the trek all the way back along the water & see if you can find the heart-shaped puddle. If you make it there during the Salmon runs I swear there’s more fish in the stream than water.
