Holy Apostles Catholic Church Wedding | Catherine + Neil | Boise Wedding Photographers

Catherine and Neil chose the Holy Apostles Catholic Church in Meridian as the location for their wedding ceremony which took place early this spring.  The ceremony included all the traditional elements of a catholic wedding plus a little added surprise at the end…  a bagpipe player.
Following the wedding services, guests relocated to Capital City Event Center which is located inside the Adelmann building in downtown Boise.  The wedding reception included cocktails, dinner and dancing.
The images below are a collection of photos taken throughout the day…. which started with formal wedding portraits inside the church and followed with some more casual urban wedding photos in downtown Boise.
Thanks Catherine and Neil for choosing Leap Photography to capture your special day!

Jens + Sarah / Boise pre bridal portraits

Pre bridal session?  What’s that?  It’s a very common questions in today’s wedding scene.  
Modern trends have led to more and more on location photography and in turn the studio portrait has been somewhat left to the wayside.  This is especially true with wedding photography.  

So what is a pre bridal session?  Well, simply put, a pre bridal session is a portrait session of the bride and groom or even just the bride taken days before if not weeks before the wedding.  It’s not necessary for the photographs to be taken in a studio setting but traditionally this has been the case.

Although a pre bridal session is not for everyone it does have it’s advantages.  I believe one of the biggest advantages is the lack of stress associated with the portrait session.  You and the photographer have ample amounts of time and you are only dealing with the one task at hand.  Creating beautiful portraits.  There are no wedding day distractions to contend with.
Recently I had the pleasure of photographing my first pre bridal in quite some time.  Jens and Sarah met me in January at the Wedding Party Show and asked if I ever photographed studio bridals.  Although they already had a photographer lined up for their big day, this couple needed to find a photographer with access to a studio.  I gladly accepted their request and set aside a few hours to spend with them just two days prior to their wedding.

Thanks Jens and Sarah for taking a few hours out of your busy schedules.  I had a great time!

Chad & Alissa / Boise engagement photographer


Spring is in our midst and I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than with a happily engaged couple in one of my favorite winter hideaways.
 I think we picked a fantastic place to capture their engagement photos.
 Chad and Alissa’s personalities are a perfect compliment to the lovely setting.  They’re a burst of energy and full of laughs and love.
I am looking forward to August.  Your wedding is going to be beautiful.

Justin & Gabby / Boise engagement photographer

Justin and Gabby’s wedding is just around the corner.  After a few failed attempts due to weather we finally braved the elements to get this session done before the wedding day, April 2nd.   I’m not exactly sure, but I think the temperature was about 25 degrees.  It was so cold that besides one gentleman walking his dog, we were the only people in Kathryn Albertson Park.  As some of you know this is quite the rarity for a Saturday in Boise.
Thanks Guys!  I’m looking forward to your wedding and crossing my fingers for sunny skies and fluffy white clouds.
