While I haven’t released any of the actual images from this workshop yet, I did want to share some of the “Behind the Scenes” of a workshop!  My phenomenal team – Jena (my business partner/co-teacher), Unique (Hair and Makeup, Stylist, Creative Director), and Bryce (Cook, Furniture Mover, Assistant, and a billion other little job details) – are what helped make this such a great workshop, and you get to see them in action in some of these photos!

The group of women we had at this workshop was so fun and wonderful and we branched far outside of the “Stardust” shoot (several attendees ended up having the chance to shoot their first fine art nudes! You can see a BTS of that in one of the photos).  We had an amazing time, at one of the most wonderful locations I’ve ever been to.  I cannot wait to go back!

My dearly beloved if I am to die today and never see the sweet face of you I want you to know that I am no great man and am lucky to have such a woman as you.

I loved photographing Shane and Heidi’s wedding in North Idaho a couple of weeks ago!  Although rainy and cold, their energy was infectious and the bridal party had me cracking up the entire day!

Darling, don’t be afraid.
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more”
“A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri

Oh, how incredibly beautiful was Ben and Kaylyne’s wedding!  The soft rose and foggy blue colors complimented the rustic wood of the venue so flawlessly.  Kaylyne looked absolutely stunning in her dress, and Ben and their daughter Madison made for one gorgeous family.  I loved how small and intimate this wedding felt, with just their closest friends and family gathered for a short ceremony celebrating love and family.

    Bailey - BEAUTIFUL pictures and BEAUTIFUL bride! Just so you know the dress came from B.B. Bridal in Boise! Thank you 🙂ReplyCancel

When Dominique and Nirav first contacted me about photographing their gorgeous East meets West wedding, one of the things they said attracted them to us was how much we embraced color.  Dominique immediately told me she needed a photographer who loved color – and she was so right!  This wedding was an absolute dream for me to photograph… from the gorgeous henna that Dominique and her bridesmaids had done at the Mehndi Ceremony, to the beautiful sarees, and the stunningly draped mandapa – all aspects were an explosion of rich color.

The Coeur d’Alene Resort was incredible to work at for this ceremony. The staff was incredible, the rich Indian food was delicious, and the location was to die for.

I am so thrilled we were able to be a part of such a unique ceremony for such a wonderful couple!

Sometimes wedding days go off without a hitch.  Other times, every carefully laid plan just goes out the door with the wind.  In this case – they all went in the door with the wind.

“I’ve never worked a wedding day quite so windy before… but welcome to Idaho!  Just hours before the Deb and Tim’s wedding was supposed to start, they found out they had to move their entire reception and luncheon indoors in Deb’s mom’s house.  Their family and team quickly rearranged the furniture and began setting up the tables inside, making decisions like where the guest book would go, the cake, and all the food.  While it felt slightly chaotic, Deb held herself together and the wedding ended up being incredibly gorgeous, even if it wasn’t exactly what everyone had planned on.

The flowers from Canyon Floral were absolutely stunning.
Greg Marsh Cakes always puts together the most beautiful show stopping cakes! I love photographing their works of art.
The gorgeous dresses and amazing blue tux are from Christa’s Dress Shoppe.

I can’t thank Tim and Deb enough for allowing me to be a part of their beautiful (and windy!) day!  This was such a touching ceremony, and you could feel the love every single person that came had for this couple.
