Portraits by Cynthi bio picture
  • Hi! I'm Cynthi (yep, it's short for Cynthia). I'm a wedding and portrait photographer serving the Treasure Valley in Southwest Idaho. I'm a lover of beautiful light, sweet glass (nerdy photographer lingo for camera lenses), and the whole creative process that each and every session brings!

    I have a casual and relaxed approach to sessions. I'm a pretty mellow kind of girl...until I nail a really killer shot...at which point I've been known to squeal and/or scream. :) Have a look around and if you have any questions or are ready to book a session, just click on the "Contact Me" form above!

Jamie + Kevin | a Banbury Golf Course wedding

I’m going through and highlighting some of my favorite weddings from 2014 and how could I pass this one up? A golf course wedding, a beautiful couple completely in love surrounded by family and friends watching as they begin their forever…does it get any better than this?

If you saw Jamie and Kevin’s engagement session, then you know just how adorable they are! Sometimes I felt like I was looking forward to their wedding almost as much as they were. Jamie and Kevin booked me for all day and added a second photographer for 3 hours also. There were so many beautiful images from their day that it has been quite a task for me to narrow it down to a reasonable number of images to post! (Just to give some perspective, they received 840 photos!)

Jamie and a couple of her bridesmaids started their day getting ready at Panache Hair Studio and Spa in Eagle before taking the short drive over to Banbury Golf Course. Not only did Jamie want to do a first look with Kevin before the ceremony, but she also wanted a first look with her dad and two brothers. She even had a gift for her dad and it was an emotional moment for all. (It was one of those moments where I’m glad I can hide my blubbering face behind the camera).

Jamie and I worked out a great timeline to her day so that we were able to allow for lots of family and wedding party photos with plenty of time to spare before the ceremony. No rush, just fun! I think it was critical in how her images turned out. No one was stressed and we could just relax and have fun in the anticipation of the ceremony to come (without constantly checking our watches!).

The ceremony at Banbury looking out over the pond was gorgeous! Afterward, Soundwave Music did such a fantastic job of organizing the reception events and dancing! No joke. I’ve never worked with a DJ team so professional, thorough, and most importantly fun!

It’s so easy to see the beautiful relationships among the family and close friends at this wedding! Again, such an honor to get to work with couples like Jamie and Kevin and be a part of their wedding day!

Nicole and Natalie | Sisters Portraits

About 4 years ago, these beautiful girls were some of my very first “real” clients. You know, the kind that aren’t friends or family but actually found me organically and liked my work enough to pay me for it. Their dad had contacted me about getting some portraits of them done as a mother’s day present for their mom. I was super excited and super nervous, but their calm demeanor in front of my camera eased my nerves.

So when Nicole contacted me that she’d be home from college for Christmas and asked if they could get pictures done for their mom again, I was thrilled!! While I was all bundled up in my winter coat and scarf for the 35 degree day, these girls were rockin’ their short sleeves and don’t even appear cold! These girls are so sweet and smart and really are just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. Nicole and Natalie were fantastic to photograph (and their mom loved the photos too!).
