My name is Cassi and I am a lifestyle & portrait photographer specializing in family & wedding photography. I have a great passion for capturing the love shared between my families & couples, documenting the unposed alongside the posed moments in life.
I grew up in Meridian, Idaho and now live in Boise with my handsome husband, 2 kids, and our puppy Evie. I was raised in a home where photos were taken often, and those photos were always displayed. My grandmother and her camera were never far apart, so you can see how my passion for photography began.
This business started out as a side job to allow me to be at home with my kids more, I never dreamed it would become what it has. I am so fortunate to have the support of my husband, who has always believed and encouraged me to pursue and grow this business.
A little about me...
I love traveling with my family and friends, being in the mountains, and visiting the ocean are often the destinations. Time with the people I love is truly my happy place and I hate missing out on the fun! I love coffee & I have an addiction to chips & spicy salsa. I have a passion for home design and am always either starting, in the middle of, or planning a DIY home project.
I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you & your family!

My fiancé and I are so happy with how our engagement photos turned out. Cassi is amazing to work with. She’s super sweet, creative and talented.
we had a lot of fun getting our engagement pictures taken by Cassi. She’s super sweet, creative, talented and professional. She was able to help us relax and have fun with the experience. She even went the extra mile to pick us up for our session. I’m excited to work with her on our wedding day.

I can say with complete confidence that our wedding day would have been no where near as special without Cassi as our photographer. She was there for us every step of the way, guiding us through the process and helping to make our day memorable, special, and absolutely perfect. From our very first phone call, she was professional, kind, and so helpful. She asked questions to get to know us to tailor our experience to something meaningful for us....

Cassi was amazingly responsive and flexible when planning my wedding. My husband and I live in California and were planning on getting married in Eagle, Idaho and Cassi was able to FaceTime me in order to make sure we would be a good fit for our upcoming nuptials. She was incredibly professional and very helpful when it came to making appointments, even states apart! Definitely a lifelong friend and will continue to use her for all my photography needs!!

Cassi is so much fun to work with! She meets with you to get an idea of you are looking for. She makes sure you get every picture you want and goes out of her way to help out in any way possible! There is no need to stress over making sure somethings aren't missed for wedding pictures because she will get it all! She is very professional with what she does & she is amazing at getting pictures back to you quickly!!

Cassi did our family pictures and our engagement pictures, both of which turned out better than I hoped. She makes everyone feel comfortable, including my camera-avoiding husband and son. I told her I wanted more candid style photos and she did an incredible job capturing our personalities, naturally. She's easy going and professional and always open to ideas on locations and styles. I highly recommend her!

We have used Cassi for multiple photo shoots such as large family group photo's, small family group; toddlers (amazing how she was able to get the squirrely kids who couldn't sit still and get the great shots of them); pets and baby shower.
She was prompt and easy to work with and communicate what we were hoping for. We will use Cassi for everything in the future!
Cassi is seriously the BEST! We were beyond happy with our wedding and engagement photos. We plan on using her again for our Christmas Card photos this year. My husband and I both highly recommend CJ Ward Photography to our friends and family.
