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!

Military Discounts for Photography | Boise Idaho

I just received another wedding inquiry (and believe me, I get excited about each and every one!).  This one was from a sweet bride in Boise who is planning her summer wedding.  It will be a military wedding because her fiancé is a Marine Corps Corporal.

It was just after I read that that I realized that I have neglected to publically announce my utter respect, appreciation, and gratitude to our military!

Offering a military discount of 10% is the very least I can do to show that.

Just to be clear, that’s 10% off any wedding package or session (for families, couples, newborns, anything).

And again, THANK YOU for protecting our freedoms!

The fine print:  For wedding packages, this offer extends only to the bride and groom. For another type of session, serviceman or woman needs to be present at the time of session.  Either in portraits (for family sessions or as a parent to children in a photography session).  ID of service status, current or retired will be asked for at the time of session.

Little C Man | Childrens Photography Nampa Idaho

Well, I am lucky enough to have gotten to photograph this cool dude four times now!  And I’m such a sucker for his crazy, cheesy grin!  But I also had to capture his “cool dude” face too (see below).  I love ‘em both.

Little C Man is just about to turn 3, and he loves trains so the Nampa Train Depot in downtown Nampa was such a great setting for our photo shoot.  Enjoy!

Winter Promotion | Boise Idaho Wedding Photographer

‘Tis the season for proposals!

TheKnot.com says that 39% of proposals occur between November and February (among 20,000 newlyweds surveyed).  And I certainly always see an uptick in the number of wedding photography inquiries during these months as well.

So for just another little incentive to let me capture your special day, I’m bringing back my Winter Promotion!  So here it is…

Anyone who books a wedding photography package (yes, any package) with Portraits by Cynthi from now until March 1st will receive a

complimentary 16×20 Gallery Wrapped Canvas

of their favorite wedding image.

These canvases are professionally printed and of exceptional quality valued at $229!

I’d love to talk with you about your upcoming wedding, and I’d love for you to be able to take advantage of this amazing offer.  I only take a limited number of weddings a year in order to give each bride more time and attention, and dates for 2014 weddings are filling up quickly.  So go ahead and click that little Contact Me tab at the top, let me know your wedding date and let’s hope and pray that I still have it available!
