I had taken a 3 month brake to regenerate my energy and vision for this new coming season. This is my first wedding for 2011. I could not be more happier with how beautiful Emily and Brady are.  They are just fun!! The wedding was wonderfully planned by Alisa from La Luna Events. Everything in this wedding is incredible. Fabulous food by Beacon Hill Catering, and the flowers from Fleurtations were breathtaking. I had a great time. Here are some of  the images from the day and a sweet story from the bride.

“we met while on my first deployment and his second to Kyrgyzstan. We were both copilots at the time.  We started out as friends but 6 months after we met we started dating and have been together ever since! We have loved living in Spokane and enjoy spending our time skiing, biking, exploring farmers markets and taking evening walks with our dog, Sophie. We have faced many challenges in our relationship since we both deploy frequently and are sent on short notice missions often. In August of 2010, while vacationing in the San Juan islands, Brady proposed and a month later we were married in a legal ceremony at the Spokane courthouse. We still felt like we wanted to have a wedding celebration with all our family and friends so on March 19 we made that wish a reality!”



  1. Ifong, these photos are gorgeous! I had such a great time working with you and planning this wedding for such a fabulous couple! Congratulations Emily & Brady!!! It was a pleasure to work with you!
