Christy & Josh’s Rainy Day Engagement Photos

I received a call one day from Christy’s mother inquiring about my services for Christy’s 2013 wedding. She informed me that Christy and Christy’s fiance Josh were attending school in Oregon and would not be able to meet up for quite some time, but she would love to take Christy’s place and meet with me for a consultation and consider hiring me to photograph their wedding. Needless to say, we hit it off and began planning right away!
Christy and I immediately began conversing via Facebook sharing ideas regarding their engagement session. She and Josh are both studying theater at Oregon State University so I probably don’t need to share with you their love of drama and vintage fashion. Christy knew she wanted to incorporate some of her vintage dresses in their engagement shoot and left the location up to me. I immediately knew which area of downtown Spokane I wanted to utilize to help compliment their fun and old-fashioned taste.
The beautifully restored Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox holds great detail in it’s exterior walls as well as its colorfully illuminated sign. When Christy informed me that she’d be sporting a dress made for swing dancing, I made up my mind that’s we’d be dancing in the street in front of The Fox.
Of course it’s quite rare that the stars align on the day of a photo shoot…the rain decided to present itself. And it was cold. Our fingers were red and numb, our noses were running, but we fought through it knowing we would score a killer shot utilizing the fruit of the constant drizzle. I’m a sucker for reflection photos and kept my eye out for the perfect puddle!
These two were such a hoot! They flirted, giggled, tickled and danced as if they had only been dating a week. So inspiring. Some of my favorite photos are of couples sharing a genuine laugh with one another. There was no shortage of these cherished images in this shoot. I foresee fun but stunning wedding images come July 2013!! and Spokane's BridgesFun Spokane EngagementSpokane Engagement PhotographerRomantic Engagement PoseOld Fashion EngagementEngaging EmbraceSpokane PhotographerDancing in the StreetTheatre EngagementAwesome Reflection PhotoTrue LoveColorful EmbracePeek-a-boo Tree
