Joscelyn & Jeff – Destination Wedding

Joscelyn and Jeff…What can I say about these two amazing people!  From their incredibly warm hospitality, to witnessing the final glow of the aspens changing during their engagement shoot, to snowboarding with Joscelyn on a powder day, to Joscelyn getting me so stoked on Bend, Oregon that I just up and moved (with my beautiful […]

Into the Woods

I recently got my first taste of the lush  Pacific Northwest rainforests that cover much of Oregon.  I’ve experienced tropical rainforests on trips deep into Mexico, but the concept of rainforests in USA, let alone in the northwestern corner of the country, is such a change from the dry tundras of Colorado that i’ve grown […]

Haley & Steven – Flagstaff Amphitheater Wedding – Boulder, Colorado

Hailey & Steven’s Flagstaff Amphitheater wedding in sunny Boulder, Colorado was anything but that.  It’s extremely rare to see the Flatirons covered in a PNW-style mist, transporting everyone in the area to what feels like a different time and part of the country.  The couple got married on a brisk, fresh and wintry fall day.

Colorado – Fall Engagement in the Mountains

It’s been a very busy year, though I haven’t updated my photography site in quite some time.   I decided to take some ‘me’ time from the social media game, and resist that ever-increasing urge to engage in the race-to-the-blog that I found myself in for so many years.  With that said, I have some amazing […]
