Oliver

I might be expecting a baby in a few weeks, but that hasn’t done a thing to diminish the puppy fever induced by Simi & Tim’s new pup, Oliver.

Twenty Thirteen

There were thunderstorms, sweltering heat waves, perfect summer mountain breezes, and blizzards.  I photographed lovely people in snowy mountain towns, Caribbean beaches, Kentucky horse farms, rutted dirt roads in the African countryside, Rustbelt cities, National forests, great historic mansions, the shores of the Great Lakes, art galleries and art museums, the Big Apple, the plains of the great Masai Mara, cowboy towns and Midwestern dairy farms.

Portraits of Families 2013

At the end of the day what I love most about shooting weddings is the same thing I love about portraits : It’s seeing and documenting the way people love each other.  It’s humanity at it’s finest.

I knew from the first time I talked to Dawn that she and Jason were wonderful.  We talked before they had a date or a venue or anything else, but they were sincere and open and just completely delightful.

Nadia & Josh // Rocky Mountain Engagement

I’ve known Nadia for a longtime (because Ridgebacks!), so shooting her and Josh’s engagement and 2014 wedding is a huge treat.

Jill & Aaron // Portraits

It’s like there’s a cardinal rule that if the first session gets rained out, the rain check will be twice as beautiful as you could have hoped for in the first place.

Mindy & Cameron // Portraits

Mindy and Cameron are crazy talented photographers themselves, and I’m guessing that had something to do with the fact that they were able to appreciate the magical secret garden quality of the abandoned greenhouse enough to brave the ticks and the broken glass and the poison ivy.

Brandy & Micah // Engaged

I’ve been talking with Brandy and Micah since before they were officially engaged, and getting to spend time with them over the last several months has been such a cool part of the process.  I love these portraits of them, images distilled down to the very essence of what draws them together in the first place.

Brooke & Ben // Engaged

Months before we did these photos, when this session was just a date on the calendar, Brooke and Ben said the thing they really wanted was snow.  We thought we would have to drive up into the high elevations to find snow on command like that, but instead, on the day we had written in our calendars there was a blizzard.  It snowed and snowed and snowed, and it transformed Wash Park into a winter wonderland.
