This past summer, thanks to two beloved clients of mine, I had the opportunity to take 10 days and explore the wild remoteness that western Montana has to offer thanks to their Glacier National Park Wedding. Glacier National Park is STUNNING, not to mention, it’s an unparalleled backdrop for a ridiculously gorgeous wedding portrait. It’s got majestic peaks, breathtaking mountains that stack on each other as far as the eye can see, expansive lakes, wilderness for days. Whether you consider yourself to be an outdoorsey adventurous go-getter or simply stick to the road more traveled, it’s still an unforgettable experience. If you’re interested in a Glacier National Park wedding, Marquie and Josh did it right – here's a few tips on how to have the perfect Big Sky Country wedding day.
Roatan truly encapsulates the essence of a dream island vacation. Whether you're a beach lover, an adventure enthusiast, a scuba diver, or a culture seeker, Roatan will absolutely leave you feeling jazzed on island life. I've visited a lot of central American islands between Belize and Honduras and I would be hard-pressed to tell you how to pick between the two, but I will say that you can't go wrong with either! So, pack your bags, grab your camera, and get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey to this tropical paradise.
I consider it to be the highest honor to be hired by friends and family. When my college friend and dorm-mate, Eileen, reached out to me to tell me that she was getting re-married and that she would like to hire me, it was such a tremendous compliment. It is no question that when friends and family members choose to hire you, it clearly indicates their support and belief in your skills and expertise so I thank Eileen for that.

My number one goal in life has always been to see as much of the world as possible. Every year, one of my resolutions is always to visit at least one new country, and in 2022, I capped off the end of a very busy fall travel season for work with a trip to Belize. With a population of just over 400,000 people, Belize is a laid-back and welcoming destination that offers a wide variety of attractions and activities for travelers of all types. If you’re considering Belize for your next vacation and searching for a Belize travel guide, look no further!

If you’re like most families with kids, summer is a chaotic time where all the fun gets jam-packed into two months, schedules and routines are out the window, and most importantly, it’s one of the easiest times to travel with little rascals. Planning an international trip to Europe with kiddos is no small feat, but these tips will help make it a smoother journey. Bon voyage!
Ali and Seth LOVE bikes. They love bikes so much they wanted their Holly's Ocean Meadow Wedding to be filled with them! They love bikes so much they were going to go on a bikepacking trip across Europe as their honeymoon. I ALSO love bikes! Seemingly, this was an absolute match made in heaven and I was so excited to return to Holly's Ocean Meadow in Mendocino, CA to capture their amazingly perfect bike filled wedding day.
Every year I make it a goal to visit a new international country. I am, 41 years into my life and not yet running out of places to explore. Having visited Turkey in 2020, heading to Ecuador with a good friend's family felt like the perfect way to close out 2021. Here's my Ecuador Travel Guide, along with photos and stories of this beautiful country to accompany it.
Despite how much time I spend traveling, very little of it is spent exploring new places in the United States. I have a tendency and frequent desire to explore foreign countries when I have the chance, rather than destinations in my own backyard. That made a quick weekend trip to Bozeman, Montana this past October an absolutely wonderful surprise and delight, despite the frigid temps. If you've got a hankering to visit Montana, I have the perfect itinerary for you for two days in Bozeman and make sure you pack that puffy!
I've now photographed two (YES! TWO!) full and large post pandemic weddings in all their glory: Anna and Harrison's amazing second line filled New Orleans wedding, and Whitney and Steve's Sugar Bowl wedding, which will be coming to this blog VERY soon. Until then, I have an amazing wedding to share that somehow never made it to the blog. Sam and Patrick recently celebrated their second wedding anniversary on May the 4th so that seems like a perfectly good reason to finally share images from their Haue Valley Wedding in St. Louis, MO. Sam grew up in St. Louis and her father was actually one of my former co-workers at Pearl Izumi, which made this wedding all the more special. More from their spring wedding in the Missouri countryside here!
The new owners of Willowbrook Apple Farm had a lot on their hands: 3 kids, 2 full time jobs, home schooling, AND now, and then a pandemic hit. Said apple farm also came complete with some extra houseguests: a mini-pony, a mini-donkey, chickens, a couple of cats, a dog and the most recent addition: a pig named Delilah.
Having grown up in Texas and having lived a good portion of my adult life in Austin, it comes as a frequent surprise to people to hear that I had never taken a West Texas road trip and explored all that our state has to offer, and in particular, Big Bend National Park. Now that I've made the effort to explore the area, I can say for certain that I've been missing out. Marfa, Alpine and the Big Bend region of West Texas have a huge amount to offer for anyone who is looking for a languid pace, an artsy influence, and a cold beer on a porch in the Texas twilight. The West Texas mountains are singing your name: here's my suggestions on where to stop, what to eat, and what to do while on a West Texas road trip.
