Wedded Bliss /Boise Wedding Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the nuptials of Dianna & Kodjo. Both are immigrants from Africa but met here in Boise. I guess it is true when some say; you never know where in the world you will find love. These two certainly traveled a long way to find each other and they couldn’t be more perfect for each other.

The big day began with Dianna’s arrival at the First Baptist Church.

Last minutes hugs and well wishes from Mom.

The two getting ready to drive over to the Bishop’s House for their reception.

It was such a gorgeous day outside!
We were all so happy to see blue sky’s and be blessed with warm spring weather. We could not have asked for a better day.

The bridal party was led into the reception by a group of dancers. I’m told this is a Rwandan tradition and this dance in particular is traditionally performed at the beginning of wedding receptions.

Spring is Here!! /Boise Photographer

The recent gorgeous weather combined with the things I’m finding in my yard are just making me positively giddy. I love to work in my yard and soon will be getting the chance to get my hands dirty and get some new plants in the ground.

When my husband and I bought our home 5 years ago we had a house and a yard overtaken by weeds, dead trees and shrubs and an occasional clump of grass. We had our work cut out for us not only outside but inside the house as well. 5 years later and and we have made significant progress and I have a backyard that still needs some work but now provides us with joy all spring, summer and fall.

Here are a few pictures of flowers I found in my yard this morning.

One of my favorite spring flowers. When they are in full bloom the smell is intoxicating and the flower is to die for.



Always the first sign that spring is here.

Spicy concoctions / Boise Commercial Photographer

I just have to give my friend Molly and her business a little plug. Molly is the owner of Molly’s Mills and she sells a variety of awesome spice concoctions to anyone. Cross my heart and hope to die, she has no idea I’m even doing this.

Molly and I met through our husbands who we admit are huge “beer geeks”. This is not a term we use lightly because both of our husbands are serious about their beer. These two and all of their “beer geek” buddies are not alcoholics by any stretch. No, they collect beer, each has their own beer cellar which all the other guys envy and inspect on a regular basis, and they even get together for regular beer tastings. Like I said this is serious business. Because Molly and I are so supportive of our husbands common interests we tend to be the two who host the “tastings” most often. We each attend most of the tastings and in turn have had a considerable amount of time to get to know each other and talk shop.

Molly and I are both business owners. I obviously am the face of Leap Photography and Molly runs a successful business that you can visit any Saturday at the Capital City Market. Her business, Molly’s Mills offers a variety of spice blends and mills for purchase. Her spice blends are wonderful and economically priced.

So if my little plug isn’t shameless enough…….go to her website, visit her at the market.
Just try her stuff!
