2016 Bridal Festival Special!! *Note- This promotional offer has expired.* Well, friends! Its time again for another Spokane Bridal Festival- a weekend chock full of energy with thousands of eager brides and anxious vendors, all hoping to overcome mountains of stress by making exciting new connections for the 2016 wedding season!

Wedding photos (2014 Year in Review)!! Hey, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, but not for any lack of work! On the contrary, we had a very busy and awesome wedding season, and its looking to be a great 2015, as well!  Just take a look at how busy we’ve been with a brief 2014 wedding year in...

‘Oh Very Young’, a fashion editorial.

‘Oh Very Young’, a fashion editorial. All photos from this editorial (plus 5 new, never before seen images!) make up my Director’s Cut, and are available for sale as 16″x24″ framed prints, with 1/2 of all proceeds to be donated to support  local organizations (such as The Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture) and the renovation of Spokane Riverfront Park. Smaller prints may be purchased, as well. In 1974, my hometown of Spokane, Wa hosted the World’s Fair. Nobody thought our small city could pull it off, but we did and it put Spokane on the map. President Nixon presided over the fair’s the opening...

Some say this is my best work… I like that.

Some say this is my best work… I like that. Cami Bradley is one of Spokane’s newest celebrities. When Jill and I went to see her perform at The Bing Crosby Theater in Spokane, WA a couple of days after the finale of America’s Got Talent (she placed 6th overall!), we were excited to see Cami’s younger brother Ryan Miller on stage tuning a guitar and getting ready to open for her with his band, The Rustics. Cami and Ryan have long been members of Life Center Foursquare Church, where their parents are worship pastors. About a decade ago, I was actively involved in both the high school and college ministries there, and...

We’re All Wolves: A Red Riding Hood Tale

We’re All Wolves: A Red Riding Hood Tale On an ordinary day much like today, a girl (who out of respect for her personal identity, we’ll call Red), decided to go for a walk. Now, I don’t want to bore you with the mundane details of her life, but as I’m sure you can imagine, she was pretty much just like you or me. For any of you that have lived for more than 30 years on this planet, you’ll understand what I mean when I say that life in the 21st century is complicated. We don’t live like we once did, engaging in real conversations with real people, instead falling more and more in love with our computers...

Sam & Shayla’s Engagement Session!

Sam & Shayla’s Engagement Session! I can’t tell you just how excited I am to both show you guys the results of this AWESOME engagement session I did a couple weeks ago with Sam & Shayla, and to shoot their wedding!! Sam interned with me a couple of summers ago, and during that time we had an awesome chance to get to know each other. Naturally, when it came time to pick a wedding photographer, he gave me a call. Here’s what Sam had to say… “We’ve known each other for about 7 years now. As church acquaintances with the same “group of friends”, we don’t even remember meeting; we have simply...

McKennah & Camdyn’s Sister Session – February 27, 2013

McKennah & Camdyn’s Sister Session – February 27, 2013 I don’t know what’s happened to the time. Just last week, my nieces McKennah, nearly 5 years old, and Camdyn, pushing 4, were 2 and 1. It’s amazing how what they say is true. Time really flies. Well, commemorating their birthdays (which are just two months apart and coming up fast!), we had to get our now annual session in. Daddy (my brother Nate) and I took the girls out to explore the ‘lesser’ areas of Spokane and get some sweet photos along the way. We made up wild stories about a grumpy old troll named Stephen (who lives in the orange building you’ll...

Chris & Kallee’s Engagement Session – February 16, 2013

Chris & Kallee’s Engagement Session – February 16, 2013 Kallee and I went to high school together. She’s one of the sweetest girls you’ll ever meet, so it only made sense that she would end up with an awesome guy like Chris. These two deserve each other. Watching them laugh together was such an amazing highlight for me on their engagement session! I swear, I have the coolest job. Anyway, their session was so great, the emotion so fantastic, I had to share! I know their wedding will be a blast, but until then you’ll all have to be happy with these! As always, your feedback is coveted!   Whenever I get the...
