coeur d'alene engagement photos | spokane wedding photographer | tubbs hill | cda resort

I have noticed that in the beginning life stages of my photography business that those who rally around me to support me have been my clients! And this is nothing new with this sweet couple.  

I met Amy at church nearly 3 years ago after moving to Spokane.  We were in the same Beth Moore Bible Study.  Amy has an adventurous spirit that has lead her all around the world.  She lived in Japan and traveled Asia while she was there.  She has also been on countless short-term mission trips which leads us to another intersection of the Melissa and Amy world.  Unknowingly to either of us we were both on the same mission team to Nicaragua together through our church!  I learned so much about this girl and her heart for people and for living her life with Jesus at the center. 

I love short courting periods.  I don't know if its because Brenton and my dating and engagement happened rather quickly but people... when you know you know and why wait any longer than you have to!  Amy & Nick's love story is no different.  The two had their first date in February, were engaged in April and are getting married in July! They have each other, their love and Jesus.  What more could you need?  

For their engagement session we were quite adventurous.  Well the entire day leading up to their Coeur d'Alene engagement photography shoot was... It was pouring all day in Spokane and we thought we might have to cancel but I was holding out and praying hard!  It stopped raining 20 minutes before Nick & Amy showed up and the sun busted through those clouds. We hiked Tubbs Hill in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho to the spot where Nick purposed just one month earlier.  Being able to take the couple back to where they started this journey to the alter made their love beam even more than it already was.  

Nick showered Amy with affirmations of his love and affection the entire night and Amy could not wipe that gorgeous and huge smile off her face!  Their love is something Nicolas Sparks writes stories about... I might send him a pitch soon. With that said, they made my job incredibly easy with their extreme love.  You can't help but notice it in these photos!
