Spokane Engagement Session-Laura and Doug

Doug and I met in September of 2009 while at a camp out outside of Boise- this however was no ordinary camping trip, it was the Northwest Interhash (a yearly gathering of Hash House Harrier groups from Canada, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.) Hashing is a drinking club with a running problem, think a treasure hunt for beer, and the Northwest Interhash brings hashers together for a weekend of shenanigans. When we met we knew it something special right away, even without all the beer! I, however, was from Bend Oregon and Doug resided in Boise, but we decided to give a long distance relationship a try. After almost a year of making monthly or bi-monthly trips to see each other Doug finally persuaded me with his charm and charisma to make the move over to Boise- which ended up being one of the best decisions of my life and is where we currently live with our two fur babies, Gracie and Delu. We’re looking forward to getting married in September and honeymooning over in Germany at Oktoberfest!  Prost!




  1. Oh my gosh those pictures are adorable!!! It looked like you two had a really fun time. They all turned out so good, not sure which is my favorite.

  7. They look great. A bit too much Doug and not enough Gracie. Just my thoughts.
