Lauren & Matt | Echo Basin


Matt and Lauren drove all the way from Vashon Island to meet me halfway from Spokane along the Columbia gorge. I’ve been dying to shoot along the cliffs every time we drive through Vantage, and it did not disappoint! It was about 107 degrees when we started, but that didn’t stop these two from bringing it. They are smoking hot themselves… and seriously the nicest couple ever. I know I say that about all of my couples, but it’s always true! I feel incredibly lucky to get to work with amazing people. Matt & Lauren, thank you for being so adorable and adventurous and for tolerating the heat. Happy anniversary!

These are a blend of MF film (Pentax 645N with the Hasselblad Zeiss 75mm lens) and digital.


David & Marissa | Pentax 645


I met Marissa two years ago when our husbands started PA school together. I fell in love with her the minute we met. She’s one of the most lovely, kind souls I’ve ever met – she just radiates joy and beauty.  I’m going to miss her so much after the guys are done with school!

Marissa and her husband graciously let me play with a new lens setup on my Pentax last month.  I’ve been shooting a little film here & there this summer as a personal creative outlet and it’s been such an enjoyable adventure. There’s definitely a learning curve, but I’m once again welcoming the way it challenges me to slow down and approach an image differently.

These were shot with a Hasselblad Zeiss lens mounted on a Pentax 645N. It’s a little ghetto but I’m loving the results! Mix of Kodak Porta & Fuji Pro 400. Scans by Photovision Lab.

Once again I feel incredibly lucky to work with the most wonderful couples! I shot Sarah’s senior photos a while back, and it was a joy being able to capture her wedding day as well. She and Jeff are such genuinely kind, down to earth people. Their wedding day followed in the same way – it was warm, laid back, and filled with sweet moments and happy people enjoying the celebration of this special couple.

a hundred days


Hazel girl, you’re a hundred days old today. It’s been the best hundred days. Not a single one has gone by that I haven’t thanked God for you, such a gift. It seemed crazy to start over again with a baby after so many years, but I’m wildly happy that we did. You’ve brought immeasurable joy into our lives. Thank you for being so sweet and trusting. Thank you for smiling at me at four in the morning. You’ve made me so aware of how quickly the days pass… I can’t seem to hold you or kiss you enough.

These past three weeks have been magical. I can’t remember a time in my life where I felt more happy or more at peace. I’m deeply grateful for the addition of this perfect little soul to our family… we’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and it couldn’t be sweeter.

Katie & Joey | St. Aloysius & Chateau Rive

Okay seriously, I don’t even know where to begin with these two. I’ve enjoyed every minute that I’ve spent with them over the last year and only wish that they lived closer so we could hang out more!  Joey and Katie are the real deal – so kind, so funny, so genuine and down to earth… they just exude joy & happiness and it’s contagious. I’m always grinning from ear to ear after spending time with them. Their wedding reflected every bit of their joyful energy and was a beautiful celebration with friends & family coming into town from all over the country to celebrate with this special couple.

Katie planned their wedding long distance from California with the help of the amazing Lauren & Beth of Design by Occasion, and it was perfect: timeless and elegant with distinct pops of their fun personality. There were so many sweet moments throughout the day and tons of gorgeous fall-inspired details – truly such a joy to shoot!

Congratulations again, Joey & Katie! All the best wishes as you open a new chapter of life together. Thanks for being so fabulous!

Megan & Doug | Schweitzer Mountain Fall Wedding


Amber Glanville Photography

I had been looking forward to this wedding ever since I first heard the words “Schweitzer Mountain” & “fall wedding” all in one sentence…. and it didn’t disappoint! I don’t think there is a more beautiful location in the PNW to be married, and the brilliant fall weather & colors made it even more amazing! Megan planned her wedding masterfully – it was timeless, elegant, and full of quintessential fall details like caramel apples & autumn leaves. It could not have been a more perfect day, and it was a privilege to be there as friends & family came from near and far to celebrate with this special couple as they said their vows on a mountainside as the sun set. So many congrats, you two!!

on a personal note


 Almost six months along and I’m so mindful this time around of how quickly it all goes. Ten years between pregnancies puts everything in perspective! I remember when Jo was a newborn I couldn’t wait for her to grow up… to start walking and talking and interacting. I didn’t realize how fast it would fly by. So now as crazy as it seems to be going back to diapers, pacifiers and sleepless nights after years of independence, I’m actually looking forward to it. I’m looking forward to the forced slowing down of life’s crazy pace, the newborn wonder and sweet baby snuggles. I’m also sadly aware of the time I missed at the beginning of Henry’s life. It feels like a gift to not only have the time with this new little one from the very beginning, but also the firsthand experience of how quickly they grow!


Joanna & Carl | Coeur d’Alene Lakeside Wedding


Amber Glanville Photography

Carl and Joanna were married on the edge of Lake Coeur d’Alene at his family’s cabin property. It was one of the last warm days of summer before the world slipped into fall, and the setting sun lingered long enough to cast  beautiful shadows over the water as Joanna and Carl said “I do”.  They were surrounded by friends and family who celebrated with them late into the night – laughing, cheering and dancing. It was a perfect celebration of the love these two obviously have for each other, and Peter & I felt privileged to be there capturing the story of their day!
