Jim + Ruth = Married | Boise Wedding Photographers

Ruth and I first met roughly 6 years ago when she was helping her daughter Angela plan her wedding.  Over the years  Ruth and I have kept in touch.  When She contacted me letting me know she was getting married and hoped I was available on her wedding date….I was delighted to hear the happy news.

Ruth and Jim’s wedding took place this past September. A small group of family and close friends joined them in their back yard for the exchange of vows and stayed for the evening to help celebrate the joyous occassion.

The Women’s Business Center | portrait & commercial photographers | Boise, Idaho

Earlier this year the Women’s Business Center contacted me with an idea.  They wanted to create a number of portraits of a few of their current clients.  The goal was to not only help promote the WBC’s services…..but to show help is available to any kind of woman owned business.  With this idea in mind, it was decided all the women involved should bring a prop to the photo shoot.  Something to help explain visually, what it is their business specializes in.
