AUTHENTIC, DYNAMIC, EPIC, POWERFUL, UNIQUE AND EXPRESSIVE IMAGERY.

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU DON’T WANT NORMAL AND YOU DO WANT AN ADVENTUROUS UNIQUE DESTINATION WEDDING OR ELOPEMENT CELEBRATION!

You want an epic destination wedding or an adventurous elopement surrounded by stunning scenery. You don’t want to be normal because you are adventurous by nature. Convention and expectations are not going to fuel your wedding dreams. If you value excellent photography and want to hire a wedding photographer who has mastery at their craft, then I may be a perfect photographer for you. Just ask your friends who hired the cheap photographer, they will tell you stories of regret. Don’t cheap out and have later regrets you cannot remedy. You deserve to have your story told through unforgettable images and have a guide and photographer who knows what you need before you do. It's probable that you don’t fully know what you need yet, but that’s where hiring a seasoned expert wedding photographer who has a lifetime spent adventuring in the outdoors becomes your best asset.

Rugged, wild and epic landscapes crack open the human heart like no other. Crafting experiences in wild places nurtures our authentic and best selves. This is what you want for your celebration. Wild spaces invite us to trust the divine, and lead us into awe and wonder. I would like to help you craft sacred and bold experiences in nature whether you envision a large wedding full of loved ones or just the two of you. (and maybe your dog)

I love a good story. Let me tell yours

 

YOSEMITE WEDDING AND ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

I also specialize as a Yosemite wedding and elopement photographer year-round. Often people ask me why I specialize in Yosemite and Telluride wedding photography. These are just are my favorite places to be and I enjoy crafting wedding and elopement experiences for couples in Yosemite and Telluride. My converted sprinter van helps keep me very mobile and able to photograph all over the western us. For the last 20 years, we have traveled the world capturing extraordinary moments in clients’ lives. Adventuring on bikes, boards, and boots are ways we connect with nature and friends. We are grateful to be a part of clients’ destination weddings, participate in humanitarian projects, and spend time in nature as part of our career. I often donate a portion of time to collaborations with global non-profits. This work has taken us to places ranging from Nepal and Sri Lanka to Greece and New Orleans. The resulting photographs raise social awareness of humanitarian crises, help monitor situations on the ground, and tell the critically important human stories behind the headlines. I will work with you to understand your vision and deliver images that hit the mark. Every wedding, every couple, and every family has a unique story. I help tell yours through compelling, authentic photos in nature. In addition to creating beautiful images, we work hard to create experiences in nature that are meaningful and unforgettable.

Has a big laugh and a young sense of humor. Addictions include poke, craft IPA’s, surfing and well roasted coffee. Has been accused of having a 70’s surf style and uses his arms expressively while riding in the back country or the ocean. Yosemite and San Onofre make him feel like he belongs. Alpine landscapes and the night sky evoke a deep state of awe and inspiration in him.

A foodie, naps on road trips, revels in routine and gets excited when a tent is being set up. Enjoys cuddling and belly rubs after breakfast. Compulsively hunts for seals whenever water is present. His heart is so big his little legs get tired carrying it around.
