Over the weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of a special event at The Hitchin Barn in Newport, Washington. This collaborative styled shoot brought together a real couple, Mary and Hector, along with a group of talented wedding vendors from Spokane and North Idaho. The result was a truly magical experience that embodied the essence of romance, timelessness, and heartfelt moments.

As the seasons change and the world awakens from its slumber, there’s something truly magical about the arrival of spring. It’s a time of new beginnings, of blooming flowers and chirping birds, but most importantly, it’s a time of love. And what better way to celebrate love than in the embrace of nature, surrounded by family, at a family farm in the mesmerizing Wolf Lodge, Idaho?

As I made my way to Bead Lake in beautiful Newport, Washington for an intimate summer engagement session, I could feel the excitement in the air. The sun was shining brightly, casting a warm golden glow upon the pristine lake and surrounding lush greenery. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting to capture the raw, natural emotions between Gina & Elijah, an adventurous couple madly in love.
