Last spring I had the opportunity to photograph Sean and Valerie’s beautiful wedding in downtown San Diego. They chose a venue overlooking the ballpark with excellent views of the city and ocean. Normally I’m not much of a city person as I draw inspiration from nature, but the city-scapes from high up were stunning, maybe San Diego isn’t that bad.  Here are a few of my favorite images, a bit of a change from my usual work but super fun and nice to mix things up.

Last spring I had the opportunity to photograph Ray and Alison’s engagement portraits in the Mammoth Lakes area. We got to ride up the mountain and enjoy the views from the mid-station gondola stop. We then took a walk at June Lake followed by sunset at Mono Lake. A lovely afternoon and three stellar locations with fun people makes for a great day! My dad joined me for the road trip from Reno and we even sneaked in a hot-springs beforehand.

Maggie and I have moved to Alaska so I will be aiming to photograph weddings and portraits in the Mat-Su Valley.

I have a backlog of images from this summer in Reno/Tahoe that I will be posting. I hope you enjoy them, I had a blast making them.

The Pioneer Peak Ridge trail has been on my list of trails to walk in the Mat-Su Valley. It rises 5,000 + feet from the valley floor, in about 5 miles. Just outside of Palmer, Pioneer peak has long been one of my day-dream mountains. A Panorama of it is slapped across my living room wall. On this day the winds ripped at us from the south-east as we emerged above tree-line. We wandered along the ridge towards the south summit for another mile or so after the summit of the ridge trail.  After some gawking in the frigid air we turned for the decent. Punishingly down.
