Dulce+ Tonda / Diamond B Weddings / Kalispell Wedding Photographer

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Destination Wedding, Weddings

Life has a funny way of leading you to awesome people through roundabout means. I worked with Dulce and the McConnell Mansion last year for a personal project and I knew right off the bat we were gonna be buds. After connecting about our mutual love (more like unabashed obsession) with dogs and little furry things, Dulce introduced me to the Board of the Humane Society of the Palouse, of which we're now both members.

More recently, my husband and I had the chance to take a weekend and camp with Dulce and Tonda in Southern Idaho during the solar eclipse. Spending that time with them meant a lot to me. Getting to watch the way they interact and the ways they show their adoration for each other was simply the most perfect thing to be around for someone as obsessed with love as myself. The way Dulce can just shoot Tonda a look and he knows exactly what she's trying to tell him. The way Tonda laid next to Dulce while she was napping in the tent one afternoon, not necessarily because he was tired, but simply because he wanted to be near her. The way Tonda talked about their wedding plans the way a little boy talks about his presents on Christmas morning. If I only took one thing away from that weekend trip (other than the absolutely life-changing awesomeness of a total solar eclipse), it's that these two are truly out-of-their-minds in love with each other.

Getting to know Dulce and Tonda better this year has been so awesome for me, and I had such a blast capturing their big day. Thunderstorms, rainbows, and a certain pie-loving black pup named Moose made it one of the most amazing wedding I've ever had the privilege of documenting. Enjoy!

Ryan + Sam / Red Rock State Park Elopement / Sedona Wedding Photographer

Have you ever heard of Sedona? When I was first planning my trip here, I hadn't. Sedona is in the middle of Arizona, in a little tourist-y town that reminds me surprisingly of Coeur d'Alene. There is an amazing Juice shop on main street, and all the coffee shops and restaurants have this amazing view of some of the most beautiful rock formations I've ever seen.

Ryan and Sam have been traveling for awhile now, and it was fitting they chose such a beautiful backdrop for their elopement. Sam had such an infectious personality, it was impossible not to laugh while she was telling you about her adventures. Ryan is a calm, steady guy who enjoys drone photography and In-and-Out Burger. It's funny when you see two people next to each other, and somehow they both become MORE because of the other one. You get that feeling immediately from Ryan and Sam, and it was amazing watching them light each other up in Sedona.

It's so obvious Logan and Ryan are such a great match for each other. They both have such fun loving, easy going personalities and they are great at making each other laugh. I always think you've found your soulmate when that person can make you laugh no matter what, and that's what Ryan and Logan are! The day started rainy but the clouds parted just in time for their ceremony and first look. I hope the sun always shines on them for their happily ever after! Congratulations Ryan and Logan!

I couldn't have chosen a more magical location for Mark and Leanne's gorgeous Teton wedding. It was truly a winter wonderland, and Mark and Leanne (both active military, thank you for your service!) had so much love for one another it absolutely shone through on their day. Add their three lovely dogs and it was absolutely perfect. Enjoy this epitome of a winter wedding!
