St. Aloysius Church Wedding-Jennie & Spencer

Filed under: Wedding — ifongphoto @ 2:38 am

Wedding: St. Aloysius Church Spokane, WA

Reception: Lakeside event center, CDA

Dinner:Putting on the Ritz

Florist: Esther from Special Touch

I have always loved winter weddings for their simplicity and beauty. I had a wonderful time photographing  Jennie and Spencer on this blizzardy day. The temperature was low and the snow completely covered my camera, but the whole wedding party were just the nicest and funniest people to hang out with! Everyone was laughing with great energy. Jennie was sure a tough bride that stood outside with a thin dress, yet keep up with me without hesitation. Since they did not see each other before the ceremony, most of the bridal session had to be done at night.  I totally loved photographing the night shots with the snow before my bride frozen solid. Here is my beautiful Christmasy wedding.



  1. Beautiful photos! You were an incredible photographer — we all had soo much fun! Can’t wait to see the whole collection! Merry Christmas!

  8. These are spectacular photos! I absolutely love this whole idea for a winter wedding. The shots outside in the snow are so beautiful. I especially love the one in front of St Al’s with the wedding party behind them and also love the one with the traffic. Should be in a magazine!

  22. Ifong’s photos have truly succeeded in capturing the beautiful and fairy tale kind of day that all of us were privileged to share with Jennie and Spence on their wedding day. Her gift of photography is remarkable in that she is able to expose the joy and love in the hearts of all her subjects. Extraordinary photos!

  25. So fun. Although the snow was cold it made for the most beautiful pictures. I agree with others in that the photo with the traffic behind the newlyweds in out of this world beautiful! Thank you so much for not only taking amazing photos but also being such a great personality to work with. I know my little sister (and now little brother) truly appreciate the incredible artist that you are. Thanks again.
