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!

Makayla + Curtis • Idaho Falls Engagements

I feel like Idaho Falls is one of those places that doesn't have as many locations I would like it to. I’m from Cheyenne, Wyoming where there's about three different parks I loved shooting at all of them have so much variety so I never get bored! So I struggle when it comes to shooting near Idaho Falls finding a location that works for what I'm wanting, but this one does great! Makayla was actually the mini session giveaway winner on my Instagram. She guessed where we are going this August which was, in fact, Hawaii!

Makayla and Curtis are great together! I absolutely loved seeing their chemistry as a bystander. It was so cool to watch their interactions and see what a sweetheart Curtis is to Makayla. During their session we had some of the best light ever. We found this little patch of wildflowers and shot in them for most of the session. The pop of yellow was just so dreamy and made quite the scene for these two. Can we also take a moment to appreciate Makayla's hat? It was the perfect accessory for the session and I'm alway so jealous of girls who can pull off hats so well! 

Wyatt + Maddi • Rexburg Proposal

Last week Wyatt called me and I knew exactly what it was about when his name popped up on my screen. Everyone knew a proposal was coming. But since I would be documenting the special event, I got all the details and plans earlier on. Wyatt asked Jake and I to set up along with Brittny and Tanner.

We left Rigby with Tanner and Brittny and found the rooftop right around 7:45pm. It was down pouring rain with no sign of slowing down, and the wind was also insane! Tanner drove us around the parking lot to see if we could find any other spots, but there wasn't much options. Right around 8:00pm we decided to just go for the rooftop that Wyatt wanted and we just hoped it'd turn out alright. As soon as we got out of the car, the rain turned into a light sprinkle and then to nothing at all. We were so stoked things were falling right into place for Wyatt's vision! The wind was still a little hard to work with as it blew out the candles multiple times, but it was nothing compared to what it was 30 minutes prior. 

I've known Wyatt and Maddi since they first started date over 4 years ago. To see both of them so happy literally brought tears to my eyes. I was bawling behind my camera as Wyatt proposed. After Maddi said yes, Jake, Tanner and Brittny came out of the side door clapping and congratulating. We hugged, we cried and we celebrated! Congrats again Wyatt and Maddi! Can't wait to document your wedding day!
