This June, Hayden and Chad held their wedding at his dad’s ranch in Eagle Idaho, a short drive from Boise. The day was perfect and the big barn was an awesome backdrop for outdoor portraits. Hayden and Chad sat back to back, playing the shoe game. The DJ asks personal questions, the answer is either bride or groom, they raise the appropriate shoe to vote. Hilarious. The barn was a perfect reception area, hay bales for chairs, great lights, cement floor and no funky smells. It was the cleanest barn I have ever been in.
One of my Boise wedding couples, Josh and Melissa, mentioned taking some engagement photos out in Caldwell, Idaho on their grandpa’s farm. As a photographer I was excited getting to go somewhere new and very different, just like for weddings. Josh nearly cancelled shooting at the farm, thinking I would hate it, and deem it too run down. But as you can see, when you’ve got the sun going down, a good looking couple, and a haystack….. You can’t take a bad shot. Everywhere I turned I saw great areas for photography fun. Melissa asked if she should bring anything, I told her to bring a cowboy hat if she had one for the cute factor, but she brought an awesome pair of red cowboy boots to steal the show.
Do you have backup photo plans for rainy weather? Boise wedding photographers deal with the weather all wedding season. Just the other weekend I was scheduled to do a wedding photo shoot with a couple at Lakeview Park in Nampa. The ceremony was to be held at MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) Chapel. The rain continued to pour all day long. Kimmy and Antony needed a quiet dry place for photos, the hanger was the only option! What’s the old saying when you get lemons make lemonade. They are a unique wedding couple and they have one of a kind wedding portraits to prove it.
