Hi, we are Rob and Laura Cimbalik (pronounced “simˈbälik”). We are a husband-and-wife photography duo based in the McCall, Idaho, area.

Being head over heels in love and valuing marriage so much has given us such a love for, well, LOVE! Yes, we know that sounds cheesy! We simply love having the privilege of capturing forever in photographs the day our couples make a commitment of love to one another. 

There is something incredibly sacred about what we are blessed to do as photographers. We do not take it lightly. We take such delight in investing in our couples before, during and after their wedding. We are entrusted to forever capture in time the love between two people becoming one. That is something to be celebrated and documented.

Our Small Town

Things we love

We met in the summer of 2008 during a teen trip to a music festival for which we were both youth leaders.  We had never met up to that point, even though we both lived in such a small town.  Looking back, it was probably a good thing since there are over six years between us - if we had met before, Rob might have seen Laura as too young.  After serving on a missions trip to Mexico together, we started a young adults group.  This was a big bonus because we got to spend more time together.  In December, Rob being the chivalrous type, asked Laura's dad permission to date her.  This was a big deal because Laura had chosen not to date in high school, so Rob was her first, official boyfriend.  It didn't take long for us to realize that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.

How we Met

1 of 6

After dating for eight months, Rob set up the sweetest proposal at one of our favorite places along the river.  He had arranged to have his best friend take pictures, while hiding in the bushes wearing a gillie suit.  This was something Laura did not know until Rob gave her the pictures of the proposal the night before the wedding as a gift.  We had packed a picnic and Laura quickly noticed Rob wasn't eating, which is very unlike him.  Next thing Laura knew is Rob was kneeling down and asking her to be his wife.  Of course she said yes!

The Proposal

2 of 6

We both wanted to have an outdoor wedding.  Since it was August, we decided we needed to plan our wedding for the following spring or plan our wedding in two months.  Well, we chose the two month option because we just couldn't wait to be married.  Planning a wedding in two months is no joke. However, we were young and naive and didn't know the challenge that awaited us.  The great thing is that we planned our wedding before Pinterest, and it was truly ours.  We put so much thought into every detail and even though it may not have been as blog-worthy as we would have done it now, it was a reflection of our love and the life we were building together.  That is what made it special.  Even though we had to move it indoors at the last minute due to a winter storm, at the end of the day it was still perfect.  It was such a beautiful day surrounded by all the people that love us the most.  Our favorite part of the day however, was when the wedding was over and we got to walk away married!

The Wedding

3 of 6

After two years of enjoying married life, we welcomed our first baby, Robby into the world.  Carter came into our lives about three years later, and then our little girl, Kaya, followed shortly after that.  Being parents is one of the most exhausting but rewarding things we have ever done.  Each new faze of life with our kiddos is a new adventure, and we are excited for what lies ahead.  Our perfect day as a family is when we make a yummy breakfast together, then spend quality time outside, either hiking followed by a movie and popcorn, or camping and then having a campfire under the stars. We love raising our family in the mountains where adventure awaits right outside our backdoor.  

Our Kiddos

In 2013, we purchased our own personal fixer-upper in the mountains where Rob grew up.  This provides the endless opportunities to put our DIY and design skills to work.  We have come a long ways, but are still excited for what else our home can become.  It is a joy to have a home that provides a place to host social events, as well as our friends and family.  One of the highlights in our home was when we were able to host Thanksgiving for both Rob and Laura's families. One year that meant twenty-three people in our home enjoying food and fellowship.  

Home Sweet Home

One of the great journeys we have been on together is growing and building our photography business.  It is almost humorous to look back to when we began in 2012.  But we also know everybody starts somewhere and are so proud of how far we have come.  We always love spending as much time together as possible, which is why working together is so fun and rewarding.  Marriage is a huge part of why we love doing what we do. We love serving our couples during the wedding process, but investing in their marriage is what's most meaningful to us.  We feel grateful that God has given us the ability to do what we love, and we are excited for where our business goes from here.

Our Family

"I love a little coffee with my creamer.  You might as well just call it a latte'."

My life's ambition used to be running a doggy daycare.

Over usage of exclamation points and smiley faces could be considered a fault of mine!!  :)

I have a weird phobia of cotton balls and foam.

My obsession with the color turquoise is quite obvious when you visit our home.

So grateful to love and be loved by my savior!

My heart swoons when my mornings are met with three precious sleepy faces and abounding cuddles.

I have always been a lover of business. I had several business schemes that my parents humored. My favorite was when I unsuccessfully tried breeding Siamese fighting fish to sell door to door in my neighborhood. 

My first boyfriend was so incredible I married him!

Laura

Her Snippets

I might hit the snooze button ten times before actually getting out of bed.

The great outdoors is where I enjoy my favorite things: fly fishing, backpacking, archery, camping. The list could go on and on. 

On Saturday mornings, while we are making breakfast, you might hear me bursting out in song while listening to my Disney playlist. The kids don’t seem to mind that I’m tone deaf. ;-)

One of the best things about being a dad is being able to play with Legos by the hour again, without any shame!

Some of my other job descriptions on a wedding day are: veil thrower, boutonniere pinner, bouquet holder, tie straightener, train carrier and cake taster.

If I had to eat one thing for every meal going forward, I would eat peanut butter. 
I'm kind of obsessed!

My happy place is anywhere
my beautiful bride is.

I strive to live life with a servants heart and love others like Jesus loves me!

Uummm... I'm not really sure what to say. 

I'm suppose to have the same amount of snippets as Laura, but I'm a man of few words.

Experience

Wedding

Let’s meet! Whether via Skype or in person, we love connecting face to face over our favorite drinks and getting to know both of you! Laura especially loves hearing all the romantic details of how you met, the proposal and how wedding plans are going! We also love to share about what your wedding could look like with us there documenting every moment.

Let's Meet

step 1

The Process

Our prime dates book far in advance. We wish we could shoot two weddings at once, but we can’t! We really dislike having to turn away the perfect Cimbalik Bride because we are booked. We always suggest booking your photographer simultaneously with your venue. Shoot a couple date options to us so we can best accommodate you. We just need a signed contract and a retainer fee and then we are locked in!

Lock us in!

step 2

The Process

This is one of the best steps in the process! The engagement session provides such a fun, stress-free setting for us to have the best time and get to know one another. It’s like practice for the wedding day! We get to know each other both personally and photographically. Then we all feel like friends by the time the wedding rolls around.

The Engagement Session

step 3

The Process

Let’s figure out that timeline! A well-thought-out timeline is so crucial to a stress-free wedding day! We have been to a few weddings in our day, and while each one is uniquely different, there are so many ways they are the same when it comes to the timeline. We would love to help ease some stress on you by crafting a timeline that will allow plenty of margin for unexpected moments and ample time for pictures!

The Timeline

step 4

The Process

Wedding day! It’s here! We can hear the bells now! When we arrive we get right to work. We love telling the whole story of your wedding day, so we start with the pretty details (Laura’s favorite!). You don’t have to worry about a thing! We cover everything! That’s why there are two of us - double the set of eyes capturing the moments that are easy to miss in the bustle of the wedding day. After your wedding, keep a watch out the following Tuesday for your beautiful blog feature. Then you can relive the happiest day of your life again on your honeymoon!

Wedding Day

step 5

The Process

We hope that this is just the beginning of a lifelong friendship! We love to stay connected with our Cimbalik Couples and rejoice with them as they enter into new seasons of their lives together. For us, it goes so much further than the wedding day. Of course we want your wedding to be lovely, but what we really desire is for you to have a beautiful, long-lasting marriage. It’s easy to lose sight of this in the stressfulness of wedding planning. But investing in each other and your marriage is never a waste of time! So let’s stay connected and encourage one another on this sometimes hard, most of the time beautiful thing called marriage.

Let's Stay Friends!

"What drew us to the Cimbaliks' work was their ability to capture vivid colors and their subjects' naturalness...  My husband and I have never liked being photographed or felt we were particularly photogenic. It was great having a husband-and-wife team, as they were able to demonstrate poses for us, and their love for each other was infectious. We were floored when they shared the end results - we looked so good!

What I truly admire about the Cimbalik’s is they care so deeply for every couple they serve. From the first time I met Rob and Laura I knew they would be more than just our wedding photographers, I knew that they would become life long friends! Every time we met with them... my husband and I just felt so at ease and it was so incredibly easy to take pictures with them!  I will always have great things to say about Laura and Rob. They are amazing photographers and the kindest people.

Laura and Rob being married made it even more fun and easier for Steve and I as an engaged and married couple because they worked so well as a team and complimented each other so well.  We would highly recommend them to anyone in search for a photographer, and most definitely will be seeing them in the future for photography needs :) thanks laura and rob!!"

WHAT DREW US TO THE CIMBALIKS’ WORK WAS THEIR ABILITY TO CAPTURE VIVID COLORS AND THEIR SUBJECTS' NATURALNESS... MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE NEVER LIKED BEING PHOTOGRAPHED OR FELT WE WERE PARTICULARLY PHOTOGENIC. IT WAS GREAT HAVING A HUSBAND-AND-WIFE TEAM, AS THEY WERE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE POSES FOR US, AND THEIR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER WAS INFECTIOUS. WE WERE FLOORED WHEN THEY SHARED THE END RESULTS - WE LOOKED SO GOOD!
