This weekend I had the pleasure of working with Tay and Dane. They are transplants to North Carolina and live on some acreage with their dogs, chickens, and goats. They raise a few goat breeds for show and to sell to other enthusiasts. Tay is launching a farm blog, so in addition to couple photos, we made sure to capture the animals.
Last week I shot Jackson Emmer and his band playing some of his original music in our living room. It was an upbeat, casual shoot, featuring the excellent guitar-work of Mike Facey and the skillful trumpet and keys of Chris Rose. We did a couple takes of this song, and this goofy, playful version was my favorite. Audio by Jackson Emmer.
Alex and Melanie had their first date in Ouray, Colorado, so when it came time for this handsome couple from Crested Butte to tie the knot, it make perfect sense to choose this charming western town, nicknamed the "Switzerland of America." Nestled in a box canyon surrounded by mountains, sheer rock walls, the rushing Uncompahgre River, myriad waterfalls, and historic western buildings, Ouray made for a fun and adventurous destination. The reception was at the lovely Secret Garden Bed & Breakfast and guests enjoyed the Americana harmonies of Gunnison-based band, Free the Honey. Highlighting Colorado products was important to the couple, so the cocktails featured Montanya Distillers rum from Crested Butte, and the wine was from Canyon Wind Cellars in Palisade.
I can't tell you how much fun I had capturing this wedding. Mel's infectious energy and spirit, matched with Alex's strength and kindness, make this a couple you just want to be around.
I am thrilled to launch this website and share my images with you. Thank you to my friends and colleagues who have encouraged me, for while I have been a photographer for many years, this is my first time working for myself. Please enjoy my images and start a conversation. Don't hesitate to reach out for information about portraits, weddings, engagement photos, event coverage, marketing imagery, or prints of existing work. Thank you!
