Kathryn & Matt's Wedding | West Richland, WA

Kathryn & Matt chose her aunt and uncle's house as their wedding setting. The lighting was challenging, but the couple was cute as could be. You could see the look of anticipation as the moment built toward their reveal — the "first look." The first look is what we recommend to couples instead of having the reveal postponed until the ceremony. Sure, there's something to be said for the grandeur of waiting, but there are many benefits to seeing each other beforehand: it's more relaxed, you can allow more time for photos, and you're not making your guests wait while you complete your numerous couple, bridal party, and family photos. They were certainly relaxed, and we always appreciate that!

Angie & Brandon's Wedding | The Whitehouse | Coeur d'Alene, ID

Angie & Brandon are one of those couples you know will succeed in marriage. They'll be the ones winning the "anniversary dances" decades down the road. They love to have fun together, and it shows. They're huge swing dancers, and they're amazing! You have to see the movie to check out their moves. The local roller rink, Rollerena Skating Center, let us take some shots after they closed — it was so cool! We also got some fun engagement footage at some fields and a secret local winery. On the day of the wedding, the guys all hung out at Triple Play, riding go karts and playing mini golf. The girls spent time together getting ready at the Blackwell Hotel in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Then it was across the street to The Whitehouse for a perfect outdoor wedding.

They broke out the glow sticks, and along with the live band, the party was on!
