Idaho Mountain Engagements • Rocky Mountain Wedding Photographer

Kicking off blogging on my new website with a couple who is the epitome of my new brand! Christina and Spencer are everything I ever wanted in my couples! These two came all the way from Kentucky for epic engagement photos in the Rocky Mountains of Idaho. We tossed around a couple location ideas back in March when Christina first emailed me. Good thing she booked it so far in advance because my summer is already getting so crazy! I told both her and Spencer I was grateful she took the time in advance to make plans so I had the opportunity to show them my Idaho.

The moment I started document Christina and Spencer’s chemistry, I couldn’t get enough! Their upbeat and adventurous personalities made our session together worth while! We hiked up a few of my favorite spots and honestly drove all over the place as I wanted to get them as much variety since they weren’t from the area. I love having couples who “ooo” and “ahhh” with me at how gorgeous Idaho is! One of my favorite parts of this session is the overcast skies we had! While some photographers prefer pretty light, in the mountains, I love having overcast to show the outlines of the mountains all around us! Another one of my favorite parts was how Christina and Spencer made this session their own! They brought a bottle of Champagne to pop during the session and blankets of their grandparents that we also included in their photos. This session is seriously what I aspire all my sessions to be like. Adventure, romance, and the Rocky Mountains!

Idaho Falls Woodsy Engagements

Sierra was working at Pizza Pie Cafe when Josh came in. In the words of Sierra, “I was smitten by him!” Sierra decided to tell her co-worker to tell Josh that he needed to ask Sierra out! And guess what? He did! Their first date was at Gravity Factory in Rexburg, which I must say, that’s a pretty awesome first date. After dating for about 2 months, Sierra made a few jokes about how Josh wasn’t allowed to fall in love with her. On one summer night while they were driving to go hang out with some friends, they were singing in the car. Josh told Sierra he loved her and the rest is history!

Sierra and Josh were a ball to hang out with during their engagement session! It was a pretty chilly day and as much as we wanted to go to the mountains, we decided to stay local so we didn’t get stuck in snow or too cold during their session. I’m glad we went to one of my trusty locations in Idaho Falls! I can’t get over this amazing forest vibe this hidden gem gives off.

I could hang out with Sierra and Josh everyday! Seriously, so kind and down to Earth. Not to mention totally themselves during their shoot! Posing was not required for these two. I appreciated how low key Sierra and Josh were. I feel like these two could have fun doing literally anything! We honestly were out just out in the snow having some fun, and getting a few photos in between it all. I’m counting down the days until Sierra and Josh’s April wedding! I cannot wait to document these two again!

Marissa + Josh • Snowy Idaho Engagements

Marissa and Josh met off of the mutual app. I can relate to clients who have met through social media or online dating because me and my husband actually met online! It was over 6 years ago before Tinder was invented so I it’s what I call a “sketchy tinder” back in the day. It worked out for us, so I love seeing it work out for my couples too!

Marissa entered my Giveaway earlier this winter and was the winner! When Marissa won she asked if she could use her session after Josh proposed as engagements, since they weren’t engaged yet. After Josh proposed, we quickly planned their shoot within a week! We headed to one of my favorite spots in Idaho Falls. I love this location because it gives off a forrest vibe, without us having to travel too far or worry about getting stuck in the mountains. These ever green pines always make the perfect backdrop for my adventurous couples. I also pulled out a lens I rarely shoot with for this session and I forget how much I absolutely love it! My favorite images from Marissa and Josh’s session are the one’s with Marissa leaning against the tree. I asked Josh to flirt with Marissa and did he pull through! We also had some of the best weather we’ve had in weeks here! It was a solid 38°F which felt like spring to all of us!
