(Wedding Photography, design, illustration)
Mercy loves visual arts. It started with illustration, and while she still does do some illustrating work (and graphic design) her main focus is wedding photography in Idaho. Boise weddings and events give her an opportunity to capture the love and beauty of a wedding day. For the same reason, she does commercial and artistic photography as much as she can. She loves the adrenaline and nerves of a wedding, she loves being there for the bride and groom, seeing them through the biggest event of their life, and following up with them afterwards. Her other specialty is portraits, everything from senior pictures to affordable after-wedding bride/groom/family portraits.
Along with wedding photography, Mercy teaches design and photography in the Boise/Nampa/Meridian area. Her long-time client, Leapfox Learning, hires her to teach the advanced design programs like InDesign, Illustrator and, of course, Photoshop. She also teaches Photoshop at a local children’s home, where she and Matt volunteer and maintain social media and web presence.
She took up photography while traveling and found she loved it. She works well under pressure and loves improvising and coming up with creative ways to get that perfect shot. She’s a post-production master and enjoys Photoshopping pictures to perfection.
