Jessica + Marcus

THE FULL STORY

Sunrise mountaintop proposal with the coolest Young Life leaders at Washington Family Ranch? Easily the most heavenly thing I have ever seen ever. It was a crazy morning: Marcus accidentally slept through his alarm, Jess almost went back to bed after waiting 45 minutes to go on a “special birthday hike.” Our friend and I had to climb the mountain twice, but divine intervention allowed for much better lighting, and an even better story! This couple is pretty amazing, and it was such a privilege to be present for such a special moment!

“Amanda made me feel really comfortable and loved. She is such an inspiration and I love her heart!”

I became quick friends with this couple after their beautiful proposal, and was beyond excited to celebrate that same adventurous spirit during their engagement session. We got up really early in the morning to catch the waterfall at sunrise, and caught some freezing temperatures and gloomy fog instead! This made for really cozy, romantic moments as these two danced across the cliffs and held each other close. The love and laughter you see in these images are real. Jessica and Marcus, you two are the best!

By the time their wedding day arrived, Jessica and Marcus weren’t just clients, they were my close friends! They were familiar with my style and felt much more comfortable to be their newly married selves in front of the camera. If you are recently engaged, consider booking a couples session with your wedding photographer before the big day!

Both Jessica and Marcus have a huge heart for the Lord and for their community, so naturally their wedding was just as big and beautiful! Arbor Crest Wine Cellars has a gorgeous vineyard overlooking the Spokane Valley, and the sunshine that day allowed for some breathtaking views. Surrounded by friends, family, and some of the best vendors in town, these Saugens said, “I do” in style!
