Boise fall engagement: Heather Little and Lamar Berry

Portrait of engagement couple with view of downtown

We always look forward to engagement sessions because, like weddings, every one is unique.  Having the chance to spend time photographing, exploring, and sharing with Heather and Lamar created a bond that will sail us all effortlessly through their wedding next August 3.

man kisses woman's forehead

This couple feels a special affinity for the Boise Depot, so that’s where we began our session with a kiss on the forehead, some balancing on the tracks, and some rolling around in the grass

 The Depot has an incredible range of locations and textures; choosing the right ones to showcase Heather and Lamar’s feelings for one another was a delicious challenge.

Stone? Brick? Grass? Foliage? Sky?   So many choices….

It is inspiring to photograph a couple so committed and in love; thank you for sharing it with the camera and us!

Heather and Lamar did a great job of coordinating their wardrobe prior to the shoot.  When we moved downtown for Part Two we had new outfits to reflect their personalities and connection in the more urban locations.

I enjoy integrating graphics and symbols into photographs–I believe the combination can add complexity and depth into the visual story.  Thank you to the talented artists who make Freak Alley in downtown Boise a visually compelling urban experience.

Heather and Lamar wanted to be photographed at the signature “B” outside Berryhill Restaurant on 9th Street as Lamar’s last name is Berry.  Thanks, John Berryhill.

As love goes, so goes the world.  Thank you, Heather and Lamar, for entrusting your precious image-making to Steve Smith Weddings!  Your love, care, and compassion for one another is, and will continue to be, a beautiful gift to everyone you touch.

Boise Engagement of Lisa Poole and Ryan Reeser

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

The drumming rain that woke me at 5:00 a.m. also awakened some concern about finding more inside locations for our 10:00 a.m. engagement session.  But the spring weather in Boise is fickle and sunlight broke through by 9:00 a.m.  Whew!  Despite the sun’s shining we started our session in the studio–a wonderfully intimate environment in which to warm up for the rest of the session.
