Amanda + Shane | St. Aloysius Spokane Wedding

I got the privilege of  photographing Shane and Amanda’s wedding at Gonzaga University campus here in snowy Spokane, WA, I had the fortunate opportunity to photograph Amanda and Shane inside the hallowed halls of the St. Aloysius Church. The cathedral is the campus’s crown jewel, and that’s no exaggeration – I was completely taken aback by its beautiful gothic architecture and intricately designed stained glass.

As a classic Gonzaga romance goes, Amanda and Shane stumbled into each other on campus, and soon their little campus crush turned into a lifelong journey together! They complement each other in every way possible – even Amanda’s grades balance out her husband’s! Jokes aside, the two of them absolutely are meant for each other, and even in the simplest glances between them, their love was effortlessly conveyed.

The best part is that even Mother Nature seemed to be rejoicing with the newlyweds; we were all greeted by a breathtaking snowfall! They frolicked around in the winter wonderland, and I am ecstatic that I got to photograph their adorable little play session! Amanda stood out like a perfect winter beauty: her beaded dress exuded pure elegance, and her fur coat was the embodiment of elegance.

And, like true Zags, once the reception came around, everyone knew exactly how to throw the ultimate party! I haven’t had this much excitement at the afterparty in who knows how long! Kids, students, and alumni alike were busting it out on the dance floor at the Lincoln Center and laughing their hearts out. Thank you, Amanda and Shane, for inviting me to Gonzaga and letting me partake in your special day.
