Elisabeth and Derek

Her face peered at me through tall grass and we held our breath, still-lives in dappled light, not sure of the other curious-wonder at meeting at all. -"The Doe" by Susan Auld It can feel like a miracle when we meet people we think we can be friends with, but to meet someone you think you can spend your life with? Mind-blowing. Derek and Elisabeth ar[...]

Tom and LauraEstes Park, Colorado

I met Tom and Laura (Broccoli and Lobo) in Iceland a little over a year ago. Broccoli had been on a trip I was shooting and Lobo met up with us in Reykjavík. This photo was taken of the two of them after we said good-bye and about a week before he proposed. One year to the day of this photo being taken and I'm flying to Colorado to photograph their wedding and [...]

Iceland

“That we leave our homes, that we step through our doors to the world, that we travel our whole lives not because we want to collect exotic T-shirts, not because we want to consume foreign adventure the same Western way we consume plastic and Styrofoam and LCD TVs and iPads, but because it has the power to renew us—not the guarantee, not the promise, just the possib[...]

Sean and Jess

I continue to be thankful for the people who let me into their lives and trust me to take their photos. It's humbling. I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that Jess and Sean invited me to photograph their wedding last month in southern California.   [...]

Glacier National Park

I spent a couple of days in Glacier National Park in August, assisting Colin Ruggiero on an episode of Chasing Light for Epic Montana. It's hard to believe I live so close to this wonder of a park and even harder to believe that I don't spend very much time exploring it.

Studio Litho

You can mix AND pull. Faster Than The Days will be released in early 2015 and is worth the wait. Well done, sister.       [...]

Jack and Becca

"I'm in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it's difficult to analyze love when you're in it." -John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley Jack and Becca were married at the Moon-Randolph Homestead just a few minutes from my hometown on one of the most beautiful days of the [...]

Seth and Sara

Hark, now hear the sailors crySmell the sea and feel the skyLet your soul and spirit fly into the mystic It is hard to describe the connection that Seth and Sara have. I wanted to bottle it up in a jar, with rainbow sprinkles, and take it with me back to the cold north to warm me for the rest of the winter. I felt truly lucky, so lucky, to get to document the joyou[...]

8 months

As I was editing these photos I tried to think about what I should say about them, if anything. The only reason I felt like I had to write at all was because my blogger friend said I should write more about my photos. I agree that some background information is helpful, and maybe interesting, but I prefer being the photographer instead of the writer. Certainly nothing[...]
