Boise Family Photography: Debbie and her Boys!!

I got a call from Debbie a few weeks back and we scheduled a family shoot for her and her boys. I didn't know her so of course I snooped on facebook and checked her out to see if I recognized her or anyone she knew. The first thing I saw was red hair and blue eyes, on everyone! Wow! What a beautiful family! We were both so excited that we could hardly wait!

 I typically have the little kids run and play while occasionally stopping for a photo or two with mom and dad. Since her youngest wasn't old enough to run we all watched as Kyler ran, jumped around and played. As we walked we both realized that we go to the same church! I am so thankful to have met Debbie and her family! Here are a few from the day!!

Boise Wedding Photography: Dane + Sylvia

Last year I was searching craigslist, which I did daily, and came across a photographer that was quitting her business and had a ton of equipment to sell. I immediately called her and met up at her house. Her name was Trish Scott. She had worked in the industry for a long time and had built up a clientele that she was sad to leave. I picked her brain and we discussed all kinds of photography topics. It was a really fun time. She told me that she would refer me to her clients as they came to her.

I was very happy to hear from her recently as she had a client that was having a short ceremony over lunch and wanted her to shoot the event. She had moved on from photography so she emailed me if I would be interested and of course I said yes!

His name is Dane Meuler and her name is Sylvia. We met at Starbucks and discussed the day. I asked questions and they laughed together. They were flying to a much warmer climate for their honeymoon where they would take their official photos but still wanted the ceremony captured. I was happy to do it!

It was a Friday and we met up at Asiagos restaurant downtown Boise. The sun was out but a cool breeze kept Sylvia in goose bumps during the outdoor photos. The ceremony took place in a small room with one end lined with wine bottles. Such a romantic atmosphere. Dane and Sylvia were so appreciative and easy going that it was a literal dream to do.  Here are a few shots of the lunch hour ceremony.
