Woodsy Engagement Session

Eleven years ago I slung a camera strap around my neck, and I’ve been capturing moments and memories that will be cherished for generations to come ever since. My goal? Put you at ease in front of the camera and document what matters and giving you something timeless in a fleeting world.

Since a few images from Morgan and Zach’s  wedding was recently featured in the Edible Reno-Tahoe Magazine Wedding Guide, it’s the perfect way to dust off this blog and start revealing some of the stories from this past wedding season.

    “We’re going to need all the help we can get.” “We’re so awkward in front of the camera.” I’ve heard this time and time again and always get excited to prove you wrong. I heard these before this shoot and thought, “There is no freaking way you two will be awkward.” If anything, […]
