Yes, this is the norm, and your future guests expect to see your beautiful engagement photos on their wedding invitations or Save the Dates to your Boise wedding. And hello, this is a fun date! Our complimentary E-sessions give us an opportunity to have some beautiful images for wedding invites and announcements. We also get to know each other in a fun and relaxing environment that Boise and the Treasure Valley have to offer and help you become comfortable in front of the camera before your big day. I can then get a sense on what you like and how I can best document the most important day of your life!
Prior to your session, we will have a consultation and discuss locations and wardrobe. This can be an outing in nature, re-creating your first date, or something more formal. Boise and the Treasure Valley offer so much variety with so many beautiful and fun spots! If you’re needing inspiration, I’m happy offer suggestions! I absolutely love e-sessions and have included horseback rides, canoeing, hiking, etc. Don’t be afraid to consider something unique! These are the best sessions, whether it's biking downtown Boise, hiking the foothills, strolling the greenbelt, going to a museum or landmark, your favorite restaurant, or having one of the many adventures the Treasure Valley has to offer. Whatever you choose, this should be fun and reflect you and reflect your style and personalities. Bring anything that adds a personal touch!
Sometimes I think I love engagement photos more than I love the wedding photos! They are just so beautiful and so....YOU! They are wonderful to have on your walls as a newlywed couple, add in your wedding album, and my favorite, to create a guestbook. I love creating a photo/guestbook album that your guests can "oooh! and aaahhh!" over as they leave their notes of love and well wishes for you to enjoy for the rest of your lives, alongside your wedding album. You never know where life will take you, and you will likely always feel a sense of love and longing for the Boise area, should you ever leave in your many adventures together.
Looking for a venue for your Boise or Treasure Valley wedding? Relax and read on...
The venue should be one of the first things you do when planning your wedding, as many of your other decisions and expenses are determined by what your venue will or won't provide.You don't want to spend a lot of time and money on table linens, for example, if it's provided through your venue. The details and amount of items you need add up really quickly, so you'll want to know how much to budget for these items. It's like which came first, the chicken or the egg! You can't know that until you know how much you'll be spending for some of the more expensive parts of your day, like your venue.
After doing some research, I've come up with some venues you may not have realized were even out there. Or maybe I missed some great options that you'd like to share? By the way, please do! I know finding a wedding in the Boise or Treasure Valley area can be one of the more nerve wracking crazy-making parts of planning your special day! The following links are in no particular order....
I previously wrote an article on what to consider and ask your potential venue when planning your Boise or Treasure Valley wedding. Hopefully that sparked some ideas and 'must haves' for your wedding or reception venue. and now that you have a list to some fabulous local Boise and Treasure valley venues, make sure and have your questions handy!
Best wishes and happy planning your beautiful day!

Are you looking for the perfect Boise wedding venue? You're not alone! Well, I've done my research and decided to share with more Boise brides.
Moving to Boise only a couple of years ago, not being super familiar with the area, I realized this has been a common challenge to my wedding brides...We are in a shortage of wedding venues here in the Treasure Valley! If you can get your venue figured out early on, the rest should all fall into place so much easier.
What are your experiences in searching for the right Treasure Valley wedding venue? What do you wish you had known? What problems did you avoid or (unfortunately) not avoid? What did you love about your Boise wedding and venue?
So, now that you're armed with the right questions and know what you want, where in the heck do you find your venue??
Actually, there are a LOT more than we realized!
There are so many wedding venue options in the Boise area, that I'll be creating a separate post this week. I'll post the link on our Facebook page.
Most of all, have a fabulous rest of your life with your sweetheart!
