This wedding season started off in sunny Chelan and my god what a beautiful wedding it was!  Being a wedding photographer that travels has allowed me to shoot in some breath taking locations.  This wedding was lakeside at the Chelan Boat club just outside Manson, WA and for those of you that have not made the trip to Chelan before, I say get in the car and go this weekend!!

If you'd like for Lovejoy Images to photograph your wedding please reach out to me for a consultation!

The Bowl & Pitcher _LJP7005_stitchljp7005_stitch


Not long ago I got to spend a snowy rainy afternoon with a lovely couple and their two dogs.

These two were my official introduction to the Spokane community and if they are anything like the rest of this city then I know we picked the right place to live.


This was also my first time to see Spokane’s Bowl & Pitcher park.  It’s an epic site to see and full of trails!

Chelan Family Portraits 2018 _LJP5872ljp5872

It’s 2018 and man I am excited for all the sessions coming this year.  Not to brag or anything but it’s only January and I’m already filling up!


I wanted to share with you my first portrait session of 2018.  My favorite element of a family session is the family themselves.  It it always such a joy to witness families getting together.



The welcome I got from this group was the prefect comfort for such a snowy day.  They welcomed me into their gorgeous home, stay in school kids!, and were a fun bunch that was up for everything we could think of.

…After All These Years So, when I do a family portrait session I like to break up the group and do some shots of everyone individually, or at least little sub-groups. My favorite is when I can get two parents together that still have the spark in their eyes. I’ve had the pleasure of shooting couples from newly weds to ones celebrating their 50th anniversary! It’s so refreshing and inspiring to witness what true love looks like. This is what photography was made for.

Shanell Lockett Shanell Lockett invited me to shoot with her prior to her modeling interview and it was a pleasure.  She got signed and it’s no surprise when you see how natural and comfortable she is in front of the camera.  Some require coaching while others take the reigns and with Shanell I got to simply sit back and snap away.

Best of luck and much success Shanell! Thanks for letting me hang out.

Chelan Indian Wedding _LJP3798ljp3798-1

This was my final wedding for the 2017 season in Chelan and I just absolutely loved it! These two were kind and wonderful people that I would photograph again and again!

They reminded me, since starting this little business of mine I’ve come to realize that love and family are the most important things in the world.


I get the pleasure of seeing strangers and friends get married in front of me and it’s something that has made my life better if only for the fact that in each person’s eye, at some point, when the camera isn’t on them, or so they think, there is a moment of pure happiness and love. That gaze that I’ve become so fond of, casts a look of openness and eager surrender that quietly speaks the magnitude of their journey and to see that first hand is something wonderful.

A reminder that even when our world is in uproar the quietest act of love can deafen all shouts of anger.

September Wedding Earlier this month I got to shoot a wedding in my old stomping grounds Okanogan, WA. The bride and groom were two former co-workers of mine that I hadn’t seen in awhile and it was an absolute delight to not only hangout with them again but to see them in such a state of bliss, jitters and overwhelming happiness.


These two had been wanting to tie the knot for so long. They had contacted earlier in the year and I could tell this wedding never left the forefront of their minds.


As a photographer, I always feel pressure when capturing a wedding. There’s a lot to cover and even more that could go wrong. However, sometimes you get the privilege of working with individuals that simply radiate patience, trust and understanding. Matt & Kayla have a way of calming those around them. I was lucky enough to be by their side and I feel it translated into these images.

I may have taken the photos but, in so many ways, they captured the moment.
