Where can I even begin this post!? Karli and David have so easily won their way into my heart. It all began a year ago when David sent me a private message saying that he wanted to propose to his girlfriend, Karli and he wanted me to be the one to capture it! I felt so honored and so excited, but man on man were my nerves going crazy! Not only did David and I come up with a huge white lie about me photographing an engagement shoot for a magazine feature, to get Karli photoshoot ready without suspicion, but I knew how important this was to both of them and I wanted it to be perfect! You can read more about their proposal and see the images by clicking here.
Their proposal led to engagement photographs, which I was yet again blessed to partake in! We ended up finding the most amazing day I’ve ever seen in Boise! It was still winter, but the day was oddly warm! We started at Java in Hyde Park. Coffee dates were a fun part of their dating life, so I wanted to embrace that! We had all sunshine and gorgeous light! We then headed 20 minutes up the mountain to Bogus Basin and photographed the rest of the session in the snow! If you didn’t know any better, you’d think part of the session was photographed in the early summer and the other portion in winter. We totally lucked out! Check out their engagement photographs here.
After a year of planning, we finally made it to the big day! I was so excited for their wedding because of how much of their love story I had already been a part of. In some ways the wedding was our grande finale. I know how much love and effort Karli had been putting into the design of her wedding, so I knew it was going to be gorgeous!
We shed many tears of joy throughout the day! It started when David and Karli read notes and opened presents from one another. David had no idea that Karli had been keeping a journal of notes throughout their engagement. She wrote them in a beautiful leather book with the words, “Reasons why I want to marry you” engaged in the front. David lasted a full two pages before tears began flowing.
Rain tried to spoil our plans of being outside most of the day, but luckily everyone planned ahead and would you believe it, the sun came out right before the ceremony? It was so meant to be! I don’t think we ever had to feel a drop of rain!
I swear I could go on about these two, their love story, and their wedding for hours. Luckily for you, images speak a thousand words and I have plenty of images to share! Please enjoy this sweet couple and the sneak peeks from their wedding day!
