Sneak Peek: Dustin and Janay Wedding!

I tend to make friends with almost all the people I photograph... which is part of the reason I absolutely love being a photographer! I have to say... Bride, Janay was no exception! Throughout her engagement and wedding we became friends and I am so honored to have been a part of Dustin and Janay's Wedding! The wedding took place at a private residence (Janay's parent's home), that was decorated and styled beautifully! Without rambling on too much about how wonderful their wedding was... I am excited to share Dustin and Janay's Wedding sneak peek! Enjoy!!!

A smiley photo of the happy couple on their wedding day! What a great spot for photos!!! Beautiful!

I'm loving the dress that Janay chose from Cameo Bridal (formerly known as Storybook Bridal) in Coeur d'Alene, ID. This dress was made for her!!!

Why have just one pair of shoes on your wedding day when you could have two?!?!

The ladies having fun getting ready... With hair and make-up by Flawless Salon in Coeur d'Alene, ID these ladies were sure to look absolutely perfect for Janay's special day!

I love the first look... Dustin and Janay chose a spot along the river to first see each other on their wedding day! It doesn't get much more picturesque than this!

The whole bridal party... they were such an amazing group of people! Dustin and Janay sure have some wonderful friends and family!!!

The beautiful bridesmaids!

The handsome groomsmen!

A little sassy and sexy on the wedding day! 

Dustin carrying his bride over the threshold... Oh my goodness... I can't stand this couple... so adorable!!!

Photos of the bride and groom!

These two photographs are the Bride's request... Janay, I hope these don't disappoint! 

Romantic and loving!


A few photographs from the wedding ceremony!

And just a few more from the ceremony!

Moments after the wedding ceremony I gathered the Bridal Party and we caught this photograph! I love how excited the entire bridal party is for the newlyweds! 

It's all about the rings and Janay getting a new last name! :-) Well maybe not ALL about those things... but they are sure important!

You know my addiction to the bride and groom photographs... which is why for Dustin and Janay's sneak peek I am sharing so many photos of just the two of them! I can't help myself!

So I'm going to end the post with 4 of my personal favorites because 4 is MUCH better than just one right?!?! I'm a sucker for the dipping kiss and the background in the photo is just to die for!!! Stunning!!!

Two more of my favorites... a little bride and groom romance and passion!

My absolute favorite from Dustin and Janay' Wedding Day! I love the sun peeking through the tress and the happy couple looking out! I'm thinking photography magic!!!


To Dustin and Janay... I'm so glad to have made two new friends! Being a part of your wedding day was a true honor. I know you two are going to make a great team! Being husband and wife will only strengthen the blessing you are and will be to so many people! I can't wait to photograph you both again in the future; and I hope to not only be your lifetime photographer but also a friend! Congratulations! Cheers!!!


Sneak Peek: Michael and Candice Wedding!

I'm loving Candice and Michael's beautiful local Spokane wedding! It was held at a private residence (Candice's Aunt and Uncle's Home) and my goodness it did it not disappoint! Oh... and if you never got a chance to see, Candice and Michael had a Distinction Studio Engagement Session before they tied-the-knot... Click this link to view some of those photographs! This wonderful couple had everything for their wedding planned out beautifully and I can't wait to share some of their fabulous photographs! Enjoy!

All smiles and love on their wedding day! So excited they are finally husband and wife!!!

Candice makes a STUNNING bride! Michael makes one good looking groom!

Who says an old floral couch can't make for a great wedding photo prop?!?! I think it works great!

Candice had the cutest and most unique first look idea! :-) Balloons were used to hide each other's faces! 

Michael and Candice each had a balloon bouquet to hold...

Then they faced each other with the balloons hiding their faces...

They counted to 3 and let the balloons fly away; revealing each other on their wedding day!!! It was seriously adorable!!!

The whole bridal party looked great!

Some bride and groom love!

Showing off the bling!

A quiet and romantic moment!

The ladies... aren't they looking fabulous?!?!

The men... they enjoyed having fun for photos!

I love when the bride and groom are holding hands... It's simplistic beauty!

You know how hard it is for me to resist sharing a dipping photo... especially when a kiss is involved, it makes it even better!!! 

Candice and Michael are so adorable and it's tough to not share all their wonderful photographs... of course... here are two more I couldn't resist sharing!

The entire bridal party was laughing... I caught this image right before we get set up for the next photo... it turned out so good I had to laugh when I saw it because it was completely unplanned! Candid at it's very best!

Michael and Candice do romantic and loving so well... they also rocked the smiles and laughs... It's so clear this is a couple who continuously enjoys one another!

The most loving, perfect image! Photography magic!

Ending with my personal favorite as usual... The water rushing over the rocks and the happy couple sharing a kiss! I love this image!!! Photography magic once again!!!

To Michael and Candice... It's been a long time coming! I'm pretty sure you booked your wedding photography almost 2 years ago!!! Haha! It has been so great getting to know you both and being able to share in such a special time! What an honor it is to have been a part of your wedding!!! I truly hope this is only the beginning of many more photographs I get to take of you both as husband and wife! Congratulations! Cheers!!!

Sneak Peek: Ty and Amanda Engagement!

It's no joke that at Distinction Studio, I get the most adorable couples to work with... and guess what... Ty and Amanda are no exception! This couple is too wonderful! With a 2015 wedding in the works (that Distinction Studio will be photographing of course!), it was time for some wonderful engagement photographs and what better place to have engagement photos then Downtown Spokane! What I love most is that Ty proposed to Amanda at Riverfront Park in Downtown Spokane! So, needless to say, we enjoyed taking some photographs around the park! Without rambling on too much... here are just a few photos from their wonderful engagement session! Enjoy!

For those of you who read the Distinction Studio Blog regularly... you know I typically start off the post with a cute "smiley" photo of the happy couple! Well, here you go! Cute and smiley... and one happy couple!

Oh goodness... I'm gushing over Ty and Amanda's pictures! I love the smiles and kisses!

I don't typically like the "almost" kissing photos... but I have to say that Ty and Amanda absolutely ROCKED it! My gosh... this is adorable!

A quite and romantic moment together! Oh and don't forget to Save-The-Date for Ty and Amanda... now you know what I am doing on August 22, 2015!!! I'll be photographing their wedding... more Distinction Studio photography magic to come of this couple next year!

Beautiful way to show off the bling!

Ty had no problem lifting Amanda for a killer photo! I LOVE it!!! I'm tossing in one more "smiley" photo because who doesn't love those!?!?!

As usual, ending my post with a personal favorite from their engagement session... With the Spokane clock tower in the reflection this image is picture perfect! Photography magic if you ask me!!!

Ty and Amanda... My goodness less than 12 months and you will be husband and wife! I'm so excited to be a part of your wedding day!!! Wishing you all the best as you plan your wedding! Please let me know if you need anything! Cheers!!!

Sneak Peek: Senior Kaitlin!

Beautiful High School Senior Kaitlin recently had her photos taken and my goodness did we have some fun! Both in the studio and outdoors... it gave Kaitlin TONS of wonderful images perfect to capture such a wonderful time in her life!

Wow! What a beautiful young lady! Kaitlin's smile in front of the camera is stunning! I can't get enough of her senior pictures... they are too wonderful! Wishing Miss Kaitlin the most wonderful and fun-filled senior year and all the best in her plans after high school! Congratulations to Kaitlin, Class of 2015!!! Cheers!!!

Sneak Peek: Kyle and Cassie Wedding!

Kyle and Cassie had a beautiful wedding and are seriously one of the most wonderful couples. I have enjoyed every minute of working with them from their fabulous winter engagement session to planning meetings, phone calls, and text messages and everything in-between! I hope this is only the start of photographing this beautiful and wonderful couple! Cheers to Kyle and Cassie!

As always a fabulous photo of the happy couple! Don't they look great on their wedding day!?!?

Oh man... I'm literally gushing over this photograph... a handsome groom loving on his beautiful bride!

Cassie had the most wonderful details for her wedding... a dress and heals fit for a princess! I'm loving it!!!

She may have been dressed like a princess on her wedding day... but that didn't stop Cassie from incorporating a little country into her wedding day! What a great idea for gifts... the bed of a truck!

Kyle the handsome Groom... And Cassie the stunning Bride!

The whole bridal party... it may have been a large group but that didn't stop us from having a good time! This group rocked!!!

A little love from Kyle and Cassie on their wedding day!

These guys made photographing them a whole lot of fun! I just love this photograph... all those smiles! One can't help but laugh!

The girls didn't want to be out-done by the guys... I'd say them rocked a fun and smiley photo! 

The bridal beauty and some bling-bling!!!

Just taking a moment to pause and enjoy their wedding day!

How fabulous are Kyle and Cassie's wedding photos?!?!?? These are just a few more I couldn't help but share! WOW! Breathtaking and photo magic at it's best!

Oh my gosh... When I see that look... I know these two are in-love! 

Right after their ceremony... I caught this photograph as they walked hand-in-hand as husband and wife down the wedding aisle! Beautiful and classic... It doesn't get much better!

I know I already shared a smiley photo of the happy couple... but what about a smiley photo at sunset? Yep... I'd say it screams wonderful!

Ending with my personal favorite from the day... a beautiful couple, a gorgeous sunset, and a passionate kiss... I'm a sucker! It's photo magic once again!

To Kyle and Cassie... I have not only enjoyed every moment of working with you but I can honestly say I think I have made two new friends! You both are so wonderful and I can't wait to capture many more moments of you two together!!! (You know... when the next big photo stuff comes along *hint-hint*) It was such an honor to be a part of your wedding and capture moments you will treasure! Wish you both all the best as husband and wife! Congratulations and Cheers!!!
