Allison & Mitchell’s Backyard Wedding in Idaho

August 9, 2023


I’m so excited to share all the beautiful moments and candid memories from Alli and Mitchell’s wedding day in the scenic mountains of Idaho!! I was honored to be their photographer and capture the essence of their deep and raw love throughout their entire wedding day!! There were so many tears, smiles, and memories made that it was an honor to document everything for them to remember!!

The day started with Alli and her beautiful group of bridesmaids!! Everyone was so excited for her to marry the love of her life finally!! We started by taking photos of everyone getting ready in their beautiful, satin robes, and we made a few TikToks!! Once Alli finally got her beautiful dress on, there were gasps of awe and happy tears from all her friends and family. Alli looked beautiful, and the room was filled with cheers and hugs which was the best way to start the day!!

Meanwhile, Mitchell was getting ready, putting the finishing touches together with his suit, tie, and shoes. I could see the nerves and excitement on his face, and I could tell he was ready to see his bride. The anticipation was building up, and I couldn’t wait to capture his genuine emotions as he prepared to see Alli for the first time that day!!

One of the most special moments from the entire day was Alli & Mitchell’s first look. They were so ready to see each other that before Mitchell even turned around, they smiled ear to ear!! Once they locked eyes, the emotions poured out – tears of happiness and beaming smiles. It was one of those moments reminding you of love from the movies! Their connection was so strong that it felt like the whole world disappeared. Their joy was infectious, and I couldn’t help but get caught up in the overwhelming atmosphere of love and tenderness!! I will never forget this memory between the two of them.

Alli & Mitchell’s wedding party knew how to bring even more excitement to their day! Laughter and cheers filled the air as they celebrated Alli and Mitchell’s journey to this special day. Every single of the groomsmen and bridesmaids played a special role in Alli & Mitchell’s life, and I could see how important each of them was through so many hugs, smiles, and laughs shared.

The wedding ceremony itself was the heart of the day, a true reflection of Alli and Mitchell’s deep love for each other and their loved ones. With smiles, tears, and heartfelt hugs, their bond was evident to everyone present. Every glance they exchanged spoke volumes, reminding us all of the beauty of a strong and loving partnership. From their beautiful vows, heart-written service by Mitchell’s father, special recognitions to their parents, and their first kiss as husband and wife, everything was perfectly put together by the Lord on their day.

Everyone Alli & Mitchell had at their wedding knew exactly how to throw a party. So, once they came to their reception, it was clear how much love and celebration would happen that night! They had three local food trucks come for dinner where everyone could pick exactly what they wanted to eat – which was so much fun!! Once everyone was ready to eat, Alli & Mitchell had some of their closest family and friends give some of the most special speeches I have ever witnessed. The words spoken were a testament to Alli and Mitchell’s impact on those around them!!

For a few minutes, we even snuck away to capture the newlyweds running into the beautiful sunset!! After, Alli and Mitchell danced their hearts out completely surrounded by their loved ones!! The beautiful couple celebrated their wedding day as the night ended by saying goodbye to everyone through the most sentimental sparkler exit. The glimmering sparks illuminated the love and excitement that had filled the entire day!!

In the end, Alli and Mitchell’s wedding day was more than just a celebration; it was a true reflection of their deep connection and love. From the intimate moments, they shared to the candid memories created, every element of their day told a unique story of love within the beautiful mountains of Idaho. It was an honor to be their photographer and witness their journey into this new chapter of their lives together!!

“Absolutely amazing! We wanted a photographer who would make us comfortable, happy, and excited for our big day. Sam was all that and more for us! She was very professional but super personable and did an AMAZING job with our pictures during our big day. Highly recommend!”
