Harper and Casey Engaged!

As soon as the crazy snow and rain stopped, I got to spend time with Harper and Casey, and they are just so delightful and crazy good-looking! So excited to be part of their big day! Here is the love story of those beautiful two!

Casey and I met at a mutual friend’s birthday party in 2005, shortly after graduating high school. We started dating very soon after and were together for 3 years. We then moved other directions. Casey was going to school in Missoula, MT and I was heading to graduate school across the state.

Two years later, in 2010, we both found ourselves back in Spokane and back in each other’s lives. We decided that we didn’t want to be without each other, so we happily resumed our relationship. Later that year, Casey deployed to Afghanistan for 9 months, serving in the military. Through skype, email and good ol’fashioned letter writing we kept our relationship strong. 

In the fall of 2012, I moved in with Casey where our family grew with the addition of a couple cats, a dog, and a small flock of chickens!  In 2013 Casey proposed in Manito Park, where his parents got married over 30 years ago. I happily accepted and we can’t wait to start our journey as a married couple!

Charlotte & Erik Engaged!

Charlotte and I were tricked into dating by a mutual friend in the Fall of 2009. The friend told me that Charlotte had a crush on me, and told Charlotte that I had a crush on her. Knowing only that the other had exceptional taste, we each decided that one date couldn’t hurt. So we spent a little time together. Then we spent more time together. Then some more.

 I was managing a political campaign when I met Charlotte, and my job ended with the election soon after. Faced with moving back to my hometown to look for work, Charlotte took a big chance on me by inviting this unemployed guy six years her junior to move in with her.

 I repaid that faith by immediately enrolling in law school and becoming largely unavailable for the next three years. If you’re unfamiliar with the effect of law school on a relationship, a friend of mine analogized it to riding a tandem bike: your relationship is going to get where it was going anyway, just faster. Luckily for me, it only made our relationship stronger, as I grew to realize that I could depend on Charlotte when I needed her most.

With law school and the bar exam now behind us, it has been wonderful rediscovering our relationship. Just like when we first started dating, we have the opportunity to spend actual quality time together. And to our delight, we never get sick of each other; all we want to do is spend more time together. I look forward to doing just that for the rest of our lives.

Brooklyn-Spokane Maternity Session

0T3A5993 0T3A63210T3A6129Brooklyn0T3A6376

When Steve and I found out that I was pregnant, it came with all sorts of emotion. Excitement, joy, fear, nervousness. I didn’t know if I was “ready,” if I would be a good mom. This pregnancy has been a journey and it’s been fun. At our first appointment I was nine weeks pregnant. That’s when it became real. The nurse practitioner brought her up on the ultrasound screen and we could see the child we created. There is no feeling like seeing this little human in it’s early form, knowing that you and the love of your life created her. The nurse practitioner wanted her to move for us so she nudged her with the probe. I remember saying, “Come on Baby, move for mommy.” This little baby started moving her lower half of her body, like she was shaking her hips. I’m not sure who said it, Steve, me, or both of us, but we said, “Oh! A little Tiny Dancer!” The name stuck and she will probably always be known as Tiny Dancer. We have about six weeks to go and we are becoming more and more excited to meet her. I’m sure the journey of parenthood will be the hardest one we will ever take, but also the most rewarding. We can’t wait to meet you Tiny Dancer!

First, I did not shot this wedding in the way I did in all my profession work. The bride Wende asked me to knock it off and quit being a wedding photographer! She made sure that I was drinking, eating, and having great time! So before you go through all the images from the wedding, understand that most of the time I was laughing my head off or with mouth fill full with food, and totally unprofessional.  Secondly, Wende was very unique, so it was very hard to get her to behave like a regular bride.

You know sometimes when you meet and get to know someone so incredible, and you just feel so amazed by that person. Wende, is like that. I have been working-out with Wende for three years. From a stranger to a friend to one of an awesome group women who workout together daliy and support each other–all because of Wende. She is sincere, compassionate, giving, trustworthy and strong. I am just honored to be there to cerebrated this heart warming event.  Thank you Wende, we LOVE you and thank you for being an inspiration every day of our lives. Cheers to the many many many happy days to come for you and Mark.

Lindsy & Phil at Davenport Hotel

Wedding: St Aloysius

Reception & Catering: Davenport Hotel

Florist: Lilly of the Valley

Hair: Monica from Fringe Salon

Make Up: Shasta Hankins

Photo Booth: Flat 4 photography

Wedding Dress: Marcellas Bridal

Phil and I met at the hospital when I was just starting my nursing career and he was in his intern year of Family Medicine Residency. We were both assigned the same patient in the hospital for about 2 weeks, so naturally we started noticing each other.  Both of us were interested in the other person but were too nervous to do anything about it at first. The patient however, an elderly man who was not so nervous, had an agenda.  Every time I entered the room the patient would casually mention how nice and handsome the doctor was and that I should talk to him.  Little did I know he was doing the same thing to Phil when he entered the room.  So naturally a time came when Phil and I both were in the room together and the patient so innocently mentioned “Did you know Lindsy was a gymnast,” which in turn made me turn beat red and high tail it out of the room as soon as I could. So eventually the patient was discharged from the hospital and Phil and I went along with our business as usual occasionally seeing each other in the halls but nothing more. A week later, however, the patinet was readmitted and assigned to Phil again. Once the patient saw who his Doctor was he immediately asked if he had asked me out yet. Phil contacted me and after our first date we became inseparable and best of friends and have only fallen more in love everyday of our journey together.  Phil proposed to me along the Spokane River where his family was holding up big signs that read ‘Lindsy will you marry me’.  I said yes of course! But don’t worry, we didn’t forget about our angel/matchmaker patient.  He and his wife were able to attend our wedding and meet way too many of our family members and friends.  I never believed it when people told me ‘when you know, you know’, but I am here to say they are right and fairy tales do exist, even right here in Spokane.
