On a recent trip to New York, I rekindled my love of architecture photography and made up for some bad experiences from when I visited as an 11-year-old.
The Natural History Museum of Utah is one of the most beautiful examples of modern architecture in the state and a perfect place to shoot wedding formals.
After doing Kim and Greg’s engagement photos and wedding formals, it was wonderful to get the opportunity to do their wedding photos as well.
Family photos with the Christensens at Donut Falls was a blast. We hiked a lot, got a little wet, and did an epic panoramic family/landscape photo next to a beautiful river.
Even though she’s from Oregon, Hallie (a future BYU student) decided to do her senior photos Provo where we explored a parking garage, alleys, and a castle.
If there’s anything better than doing family photos on a dirt back road in rural Colorado at golden hour, then I don’t know what it is.
There are fewer more picturesque places to do wedding formals than the Salt Lake City Temple, and no better people to do them with than Kim and Greg.
Squaw Peak’s beautiful views of Utah Valley matched with an unbelievable sunset was the perfect combination for these engagement photos.
The Santore family and I ran all over the trails of Red Butte Canyon in Salt Lake City for this family shoot. We got a little dirty and dusty, but the views and beautiful sunset lighting were definitely work it.
Rain can make wedding photos a little difficult, but with Mckaylund and Tess’s wedding we were able to get beautiful photos despite the stormy weather.
After winter weather prevented our original plans, we found a beautiful backup location for magical forest engagement photos – Donut Falls.
I finally realized my dream of doing bridal photos in the Utah State Capitol Building. It was glorious and everything I hoped it would be.
What’s better than a beautiful spring wedding at the Mount Timpanogos Temple? A wedding at the Mount Timpanogos Temple with waffles, of course.
Jaime and Gina’s Salt Lake City Temple wedding was about as beautiful as a February wedding could possibly be, and their wedding photos turned out great.
The Galland family has mountaineering (and fashion) in their blood, so we did their photo shoot at the incredible Rock Canyon in Provo, Utah. It was a beautiful and snowy family photo session.
After an untimely snow storm ended our plans to do photos at Silver Lake, the Greenes and I went to Memory Grove Park for some beautiful winter wonderland family photos.
Wheeler Farm (a historic farm in Murray, Utah) is a fantastic place for fall family photos, expecially with a family as photogenic as this one!
The Heatons introduced to the beautiful Bells Canyon in Sandy, Utah, when we did their fall-themed family photos there. I also talk about a technique to add long-exposure elements to people photos.
Every year, my wife’s family heads to the lake house for the 4th of July. They have a house on Ten Mile Lake which is near North Bend, Oregon. It’s a fantastic place with beautiful scenery, a perfect lake for boating, plenty of places for kids to get dirty and wet, and lots of great food. I tried to capture the essence of that weekend in black and white.
A week or so ago, we went on a trip to spend Independence Day with my wife’s family at a lake house in Oregon. In addition to the time spent at Ten Mile Lake (near North Bend, Oregon), we also took the opportunity to visit places like Crater Lake National Park, Haceda Head, Yaquina Bay, Cascade Head, and Salt Creek Falls.
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of doing the photos at my cousin’s wedding. I had already done their engagement photos and groomal photos during the last few months, so this time around I was more of an event photographer than a portrait photographer since we had already taken care of the traditional posed shots.
