About the Photographers                          


Paul and Luanne Jacobson of Cutting Edge Images in Hayden, Idaho and have been taking wedding, senior, family and scenic photos since 1981.  Cutting Edge Images (CEI) was officially created in 1993 after the couple realized that photography had become a real passion that Paul wanted to pursue on a full time basis.

They have shot over 1300 weddings, over 500 high school seniors and families, and countless sports teams, sports action, commercial products and real estate properties.  CEI has very proficient photographers adept at meeting the varied needs of our clients in an efficient, professional, and artistic manner.

Paul is a native of Coeur d'Alene and his family roots date back to 1898.  He loves the beauty the Inland Northwest has to offer and takes full advantage of it with his camera whenever possible.  When not "working" behind the camera, you can often find Paul and Luanne trapsing around looking for and creating scenic and nature images just for the fun of it.  In 2000, Paul became a certified custom framer for pictures and fine art. He enjoys the alternative creative outlet this provides him, and the ability to provide this additional service to our clients. Please visit our Other Services pages to see the variety of matting, framing, and specialty services available.

Luanne was born and raised in Spokane, Washington and moved to Coeur d'Alene in 1979. S he met Paul in 1979 and they were married in 1981.  Although Luanne is no longer consistently behind the camera, she is still a very integral part of CEI.  She helps maintain the business side of CEI and occassionally joins Paul on his photo shoots. Her main priority, however, is keeping Paul on the straight and narrow as much as possible (not an easy task).  Paul and Luanne raised one daughter, Melissa, who is a Doctor of Chiropractic Health and is setting up her practice in the Coeur d'Alene area. We are very proud of her.

When creating CEI, our mission was to provide a quality product to our customers at a reasonable price so an average family can afford our services. We have been able to keep to our mission throughout the years.

When clients hire our services, we often become friends as well as their family photographers capturing milestones such as graduations, weddings, family reunions, pregnancies and births, parties, sporting events and extended family portraits.

It has been our pleasure to be of service to all our customers/friends over the years. Thank you for taking the time to review our web site.
