Spokane Engagement session-Carly and John

Filed under: Uncategorized — ifongphoto @ 3:25 am

I love so much to see and feel people in love! Thank you Carly and John for such a nice afternoon! Here is little story of them!

Some people say when you meet “the one”, you know it. For us, it was absolutely true.

We met at the start of our last year at Washington State University (Go Cougs!). We were introduced by our roommates at the time, and we both immediately knew it was something special. We went on a date the next night, and it wasn’t long after that when we both knew we had found who we were meant to be with. This has only become more evident as time goes by. We are so incredibly blessed to have found each other and could not be more excited to begin this next chapter of our lives together.

Spokane Wedding-Rhianna and Josh

It alway fascinated with how small the human connection will impact big in people’s life. I met Josh years ago in a wedding and asked Josh to help me out during the wedding. After that Josh became a photographer himself. Through years, I am impressed of his work and had a wonderful experience meeting his beautiful bride Rhianna last year. I was so honored to be a guest at Rhianna and Josh’s wedding. It is the most beautiful day of this spring and they are just wonderful. I got to play along with two other amazing photographers-Erica and Natalie. It was super fun to shot with them and here are few shots that I love. Rhianna is just gorgeous!! It is always heart warming to see two amazing people in love!! Make me just want to huge everyone.

Spokane Maternity Session-Amber

My Mind: As I just got into Spokane from Maui, I felt exhausted from the time difference. My mind was not too clear as Amber showed up at my door for her 6 month maternity session.

Location: I checked out the location and knew that the place we were going already has tons of cows in the field.

Weather: Temperature was about 50 degrees, breezy, cloudy

Lighting: Ugly flat natural light

Difficulties: Cow poops, muddy ground and water, electric fence, mad cows?

What actually happened: Amber froze to death, we rolled on the muddy ground to go under the fence, Ifong got poked by thistles, Amber got shocked by the eletric fence, and Ifong laughed her head off and Amber had a bad face and told Ifong this was the last maternity session she would do.

End result: Here are the images to see!

Warning: Don’t try this at home.
