  • A Note From Rose

    Thank you for visiting, and checking out my work. I feel so privileged to be able to do what I love, and contribute to my client’s lives in a way that ties us as friends. I did not decide to become a photographer because I thought it would be a lucrative career path, I chose photography because it makes my heart sing. The emotion, the light, the story, it makes me feel like Christmas morning, and if you know me at all, you know how much I love Christmas. My love for my work is what challenges me to continually hone my skill, and keep discovering new ways to convey my heart through Photography. This is what I do. I would be honored to photograph your love, and become your friend. This blog is a place for me to post my latest work, share my thoughts, and connect with the world. Feel free to leave a comment if you've visited or enjoy my work. Cheers!

Spokane Engagement Session | Amy and Joe

Amy and Joe are so awesome.  I feel like we are great friends already.  Their laid back personalities and fun loving lifestyle make them awesome to photograph and hangout with.  I especially love how they are Cougars and incorporated some Wazzu attire into the session. I am so excited for their August wedding at Camden Ranch.

Best of luck with the rest of the wedding planning you two, and blessings on this new adventure ahead of you.

Spokane Wedding Photographer | Ruffled Blog DIY Feature

It is always an honor and privilege to see my work published on a national blog. Alisa Lewis and I had the awesome opportunity to team up when she was asked to create a table scape inspiration incorporating several DIY elements. You can see the posts for yourself  published on Ruffled Blog. First they showcased the beautiful organic table scape, and then pupblished Alisa’s DIYs for the  Metallic Chalkboard Table Numbers, Dip Die Watercolor Place Cards , and the seriously scrumptious signature drink;  a Sparkling Peach Mint Julep .
