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 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 are ready to book a session, just click the "Contact Me" form above!

Jewel + Jake’s Engagement Photos (part 2) | Boise Wedding Photographer

Hopefully you’ve already had a chance to check out part one of Jewel and Jake’s engagement session…with a fire truck…at Gowen Field Air Force Base…uh, huh…they make this photographer swoon! If you haven’t checked it out yet, you must! Go HERE.

And while being a firefighter is a big part of Jake’s life, they also wanted part of their session to highlight just them being them. By this time in the evening the sun was starting to set and what had been a fairly warm day was getting chilly pretty quick. Jewel was such a trooper and had no hesitation when I asked if she ‘maybe, possibly, thought she could…lay down on the ground?’ She completely trusted me to get the shot and I love her for it!

Both Jewel and Jake were a dream to photograph and I can’t wait to see them again at their wedding in September!

Jewel + Jake’s Fire Truck Engagement Photos | Boise Wedding Photographer

I had so much fun working with Jewel and planning out her and Jake’s engagement portrait session! He is a proud firefighter with the National Guard out at Gowen Field, and they knew they wanted to incorporate that into their session. He had to get special permission to let us photograph out there, but once he did, his fellow firefighters were all about helping us out! They were pulling out the truck we wanted into just the spot and angle I asked, even suggesting poses and getting out their smartphones to capture some snapshots of the cute couple. It was so easy to see that these guys are like family to each other and I can’t wait to see all of them interact more at Jewel and Jake’s wedding.

And can we just talk a minute about how freaking gorgeous Jewel is?! I knew she was a bombshell already, but when she showed up in this perfect little ensemble with the cute white dress and ruby red high heels I…just…died.

Firefighting is a big part of Jake’s life, but we also wanted to get some shots of the two of them in a more natural, low-key setting, highlighting the beauty of them…of their love. And so…part 2 of Jake and Jewel’s engagement session is HERE.
