November New York

November New York

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.

Christensens – Donut Falls Family Photos

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.

Hallie – Downtown Provo Senior Photos

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.

Santores – Red Butte Canyon Family 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.

Gallands – Rock Canyon Family Photos

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.

Heatons – Bells Canyon Family Photos

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.

Northwest Beauty

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.

Arroyo-Taylor Wedding

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.
