Engagements: Rachel & Steven

Posted in Portraits on September 17th, 2014

Working with friends Rachel and Steven on their engagement session last year was so much fun…and not something you see every day!  From horses to costumes to weapons, we had an amazing evening of photos out at the Weiser Sand Dunes that looked like it could be a promotional shoot for a new fantasy movie.  The stormy spring skies were so dramatic straight out of camera that I didn’t even have to drop in new skies in Photoshop like I sometimes do!  And if Rachel looks familiar, it might be because you’ve seen her featured on the photo blog a couple times before (take a look here and here).  Check out a few epic favorites from this photoshoot below!

Iceland: Gullfoss

Posted in Landscapes, Travel on September 17th, 2014

No gulls at Gullfoss!  This famous set of waterfalls translates from Icelandic as “Golden Falls” and is one of Iceland’s most famous (and most photographed) travel destinations.  Small wonder: the sheer power of the raging water roaring into the canyon is jaw-dropping.  Freezing October temperatures meant the canyon walls were dusted with a surreal layer of frost, making the landscape even more gorgeous.  It’s hard to find a new take on a place that has been captured so many times before, but here’s my attempt – enjoy!

Seniors: Rebekah

Posted in Portraits on September 17th, 2014

Such a blast working with Class of 2014 senior Rebekah last October – beautiful fall foliage and a beautiful girl!  The two-hour session meant we had plenty of time to explore the “grungier” parts of downtown Boise like Freak Alley, and drive over to the Old Idaho Penitentiary and neighboring foothills trails for sunset.  Check out some favorites below!

Weddings: Karissa & Mark (Trash the Dress)

Posted in Events, Portraits, Weddings on July 16th, 2014

What to do with your wedding dress after the actual wedding is over?  Trash it!  “Trash the Dress” sessions have increased in popularity over the last few years and range from light trashing to completely demolishing the dress with anything from paint to mud to fire, but for Karissa’s session the day after her Hawaii wedding, we opted for driving out to Ko’Olina for a spectacular evening of running through waves and splashing in tidepools. (Well, Karissa and her new husband Mark did at least – I was concentrating on not falling in the water.)  Check out some favorites below!

Springtime on the Palouse

Posted in Landscapes, Travel on July 16th, 2014

If ever there were a classic photographer pilgrimage destination in the northwestern US, the Palouse is it.  The undulating multi-colored hills make for one of the most picturesque landscapes imaginable and a perpetual landscape photographer favorite.  Particularly in the spring, the hills light up like magic at sunrise and sunset, drawing shutterbugs from around the world.  One of the best and most classic views is from Steptoe Butte State Park near Colfax, Washington, an easy hour’s drive if you’re coming from the Idaho side in Moscow.  As you drive round and round the narrow looping road that leads up to the summit of the butte, you start to see the incredible panoramic views of the farmland below stretched out like patchwork…and you might even get some stellar wildflowers on the butte itself.  Bring a sturdy tripod, though – it is windy up there!  Take a look at some of my favorites from my expedition over Memorial Day this year:
