Zach + Jessie // Sneak Peek // Idaho Wedding Photographer

Zach and Jessie's love story is one of my favorites.  "We don't like to say that we met on Instagram, but we did," said Jessie, the bride.  While they grew up going to high school just minutes apart, they didn't spend any time together.  That was, until a few years ago. Zach was in the Marine Corps. and at the time and was living in California. Once they started talking, they couldn't stop talking. They realized their connection was instant and fierce.  Zach invited Jessie to go to the Marine Corps. Ball with him and after that first date, they never were apart again- sometimes physically due to the military, but never in the heart.  Zach finished his career in the Marines and moved back home to be with Jessie and her daughter Paxley.  

When I asked them what their typical day looked like, they answered, "Chasing our three year old around." It was then that I knew that Zach loved Paxley like his own.  However, when he got on one knee and shared personal vows he had written to Paxley, it was then that the world heard that Paxley is most definitely Zach's daughter.  There was not a dry eye listening to the vows that Zach shared to his future wife and daughter.  

I am so excited to share this gorgeous wedding with you all!
