moriah + michael | wedding in hayden lake, idaho

i have experienced a lot of firsts in my life, but this may have been the most interesting first experience so far. moriah and michael’s camp-themed winter wedding was my first wedding ever — in a state and climate i had never been in.

elliott came with me, and through the trip we experienced multiple train delays and being stranded in unfamiliar territory, but i wouldn’t change a single thing about this experience. through everything, this is still one of my favorite memories of 2018 and it continues to have a special place in my heart.

it meant the world to me that moriah and michael trusted me with their special day, and i am so so grateful for everything this experience brought me.

it was my gateway into wedding photography, and it was the most incredible first wedding i could have ever imagined.
