If you live in the panhandle of Idaho, you have probably parroted a variation of a famous Mark Twain quote without ever realizing it. “If you don’t like the weather in __________, just wait a few minutes.” I know we have teasingly uttered this phrase countless times during photo sessions hoping to calm anxious clients in the face of foreboding skies.
The truth is … weather in the Pacific Northwest is predictably unpredictable, and the show must go on regardless. Just this past month we experienced blistering heat, menacing hail, torrential rain, freezing winds, and perfect calm … sometimes all in the same 24 hour period. Fortunately, the brides and grooms we work with not only understand this meteorological volatility, but embrace it!
Clients who hire us to capture their family, engagement, or wedding photographs enjoy stunning, natural surroundings, and want those surroundings to be the backdrop for their special event. Some clients are local to Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington, and some choose to create a destination engagement or wedding celebration here because of the natural beauty. But, all of these good folks are willing to smile in the face of whatever Mother Nature dishes out.
Whether high atop blustery Mt. Spokane (Washington) … wading through a sun-soaked field of daisies in Sandpoint, Idaho … indulging in fanciful dress-up in a salvage yard on the outskirts of Hayden Lake, Idaho … or laughing together along the shimmering waters of Priest Lake (Idaho) … our clients’ stories of love and life come alive in the images we capture throughout this breathtaking region.
We understand, our images aren’t run of the mill … but neither are our clients.
In fact, we strive to blaze an exciting new path in the world of commonplace, copy-cat Pinterest images. We are here to do photographic justice for the playful couple who love Star Wars almost as much as they love each other … the bride wearing a hoodie over her wedding dress while eating s’mores by a lake-side campfire … and the groom who whisks his bride off after their wedding ceremony in his vintage single-prop airplane. We celebrate their gusto and we honor them with images as vivid as the lives they lead!
After all … love is alive, and adventurous, and gritty, and awe-inspiring! The Pacific Northwest embodies these qualities and never ceases to impress all of one’s senses. We are truly fortunate to work and live in such a magical region.
When you are ready to share your love with the world, (be it here, there, or anywhere in between,) call Jeremiah Andrews Photography to capture the images of your priceless memories!
Until then … be well and safe travels,
Jeremiah & Shaunna
