Family

Thirteen 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.

Colby & Ashley

Filed in: Weddings


I’m not sure what to say about this wedding other than it was perfect. The couple, the families, the location, the weather, and most importantly, the mood. The plans were done and when wedding day came, it was all about enjoying the moments. Their wedding took place at their home, a multigenerational ranch in Fallon, NV, and also the home to their vineyard, Churchill Vineyards, one of Nevada’s only wineries.

They wanted to maximize the time with their guests and with so many amazing locations for portraits, Ashley + Colby opted to see each other before the ceremony. It’s not hard to see why they love their home so much that we even shot their engagement session here. I absolutely love the opportunity a first look gives a couple. You can see from their reaction at first glance how exremely exciting this moment can be.

So, we’re shooting on a ranch, pre-ceremony and while I was very interested in keeping her dress clean, she reassured me, “I really don’t care. We’re on a ranch in a bunch of dirt. I can’t imagine keeping it clean for long.” For anyone out there who knows how vulnerable open toed shoes are in dirt, it didn’t phase Ashley one bit. She was marrying the man of her dreams today and that is all that mattered! The smile never left either of their faces for the rest of the day!

Colby and Ashley, thank you for so warmly inviting me into your lives!

Our wonderful chauffeurs for the afternoon!
Priorities.
Ashley + Colby are the seventh couple to be married in the pavillion made by the Frey family specifically for family weddings. There is now a tile in their honor under the very spot they stood and exchanged vows.
Another awesome tradition was the canon fire, meaning that dinner was served!



A very special thank you to Bridget Burton, who assisted me throughout the day and captured the ring bearer sneaking an ice cream cone into the family portraits. Love it! Bridget, you’re help was invaluable!
