Nate & Luisa bio picture
  • WE ARE…

    ... THE PERKES. We still consider ourselves newlyweds [we've been married for almost 5 years]. Our firstborn, Jace, is now 2 years old, and became a big brother when Sofia Rain joined our family in November 2012. We are from the East Coast [Luisa is from MA and Nate is from NH]. We are Bronco's Fans [We've lived in the Boise area for almost 5 years]. We are travelers. We are athletes and we are dancers. We are enthusiastic about food. We are spontaneous. We are addicted to the sun. We are in love.

    Most importantly... we are HAPPY. We are the Perkes.

Photo Shoot Gone Wrong…

As our days in Logan are numbered, we decided to do a quick shoot after Sunday dinner at Grandma & Grandpa Ballards. We love the farm and I’ve taken some strange liking to the cows. Who’da thought, coming from the city girl? However… this shoot proved to be complicated and I was easily distracted. I was NOT the easiest subject that day. Sorry, love!

Help. I’m stuck.
How is it possible to pee so much?

Hang on. Let me spit out my gum.

Come here, Mathilda.

I got WHAT all over me?
To Nate’s everlasting credit and patience, he did manage to get some decent shots. Props, baby! Here are a few. And Shanna, thanks for the great shoes!

Ken & Jen - Very funny! I love getting a peek at the behind the scene antics. You two are too much!

Shannon . . . thanks for sharing the gum story! I can just hear Nate saying that.

And I agree with Josh: that last picture alone was worth the whole shoot!


[I have to type in "hysaplet." Who thinks of these "words"?!]

Josh - That last picture is amazing! That is so cool. What contrast. Nate, you’re a genius.

Shannon - 3 seconds before you walk into your wedding reception

Luisa> "oh my gum!"
Nate> "here hunny, let me take it and swallow youR already been chewed gum, cause it's not gross, WE ARE MARRIED NOW!"

The innocent bystanders> EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!
