Whenever I tell people I’m heading to Idaho, they ask, “Idaho? Why??” I’m guessing it’s because they haven’t been there, because it’s quite beautiful. I’ve photographed several weddings and portraits sessions there, and the landscape is always stunning.
I’d never been to the resort town of McCall, however. And yet when I mentioned it to anyone I knew in Idaho, they certainly knew about it. Whether for skiing, boating, vacationing, or camping, it’s a mile-high destination for southern Idaho.
I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. Katie and Justin (who are from Buffalo, New York, and Buhl, Idaho) decided to have their wedding at McCall’s Shore Lodge, right on the Payette Lake. It’s a beautiful, classic lodge, and each room has a lake view–as does the high-ceilinged log-construction ballroom.
Katie is a hoot to work with, full of spunk and humor, and a real ham in front of the camera. Which I adore. She had opportunity to put on her I’ve-been-watching-America’s-Next-Top-Model moves more than once. And Justin and his guys…they had more humorous photo ideas than I could even keep up with. The bride and groom kept asking me if there was a way they could make their wedding good enough to be on my website, and I reassured them it already was.
I have so many favorite images from this destination wedding, that I’m going to post a stack of them here, followed by a slideshow, which I encourage you to watch. And when you’re done there, feel free to head to my destination wedding photography website, and see if their wedding photos made it there as well!
With those photographs to whet your appetite, I’m sure you want to see more! Here’s the slideshow…
