John & Monica | Urban Engagement Session

When my twins were little they attended preschool and daycare at Whitworth Church. It wasn’t long before “Miss Monica” became one of their favorite teachers and soon she became our favorite babysitter. 10 years later and Miss Monica is about to become Mrs. Cadagan! Monica and John met at Gonzaga Law School and spent many hours studying and drinking coffee together at Rocket Bakery, so of course we had to make a visit to this beloved spot during their engagement session. These two are so happy and I loved watching them laugh together during their session. I can’t wait for their wedding day next month!

Let it be known that Monica’s dad, Mr. Whitehead, was my favorite teacher in Jr. High! I love Spokane. :-)

Craig & Melodie

A Cannon's Edge Greenbluff Wedding - Spokane, WA

Craig and Melodie met on a blind date in 2014. Melodie wasn’t so sure at first. Craig knew from the beginning and it didn’t take too long before Melodie decided she was ready to give him a chance! Fast forward to July 10, 2015 and these two are now standing at Cannon’s Edge on Greenbluff ready to exchange wedding vows! Melodie walked down the aisle and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! The officiant shared the top 5 things that they loved about each other and every single item on their lists referred to love, joy, respect, and their love for the Lord. This day was filled with family, friends, laughter, and tears of happiness from beginning to end. It was an honor to be there to capture this very special wedding and to celebrate the beginning of a new season of life as husband and wife!

PS. These two know how to dance! Best first dance ever!!!

Congratulations and all my love to Mr. & Mrs. Craig and Melodie Maertens!!

Craig & Melodie | Engagement Session

Big news!! I am photographing my FIRST wedding next month and I am so excited about this new challenge. My bride and groom are the sweetest people on the planet AND the wedding is taking place in a gorgeous outdoor venue! Win-win for all!

Over the last 2 years I have received a handful of wedding inquiries and each time I carefully considered the request. There is always a part of me that wants to say YES, but another part of me that just wasn’t ready to take on the responsibility of a wedding. You see, a wedding is a one-time shot. There are no do-overs! Other factors like time commitment and equipment also play a role in my decision making process and it just never felt right.

This past February I attended the AJ Workshop in Phoenix, Arizona. Amy & Jordan are phenomenal wedding photographers and the focus of this workshop was about taking your business to the next level. I didn’t attend the workshop with the intention of becoming a wedding photographer, I registered because I was drawn to Amy & Jordan’s style and personality and wanted to learn from them. They are amazing industry leaders and you can’t help but fall immediately in love with them. The workshop was small (only 18 of us) and I loved that. We all got to know each other fast and the information they shared with us was incredibly practical and empowering. They poured into us and I left the workshop feeling so excited about my business and much to my surprise, I started really thinking about shooting weddings. I left with a greater confidence in myself and in my photography and I was ready to tackle something new. Just 8 days later I received a call from Melodie and Craig about their wedding in July. Timing is everything!

The big day is 15 days away now and I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate and photograph Melodie & Craig!
