It felt great to be back home to Montana for Matt and Kaity’s wedding at the Hilton Garden Inn. We snuck away to Greenough Park on the East Side of town for their first look and portraits before the ceremony. Green surroundings and a couple of cool little bridges made for an awesome location for […]

The last time Kevin and Janessa were behind my lens they were tying the knot (view their wedding blog post here). I was thrilled to hear from them that they have a little one on the way and would like to have some maternity portraits taken. I was real happy with the shoot and Riverfront […]

Neal + Jamie’s Engagement

Neal and Jamie are a couple of friends who I was happy to provide some engagement portraits for. Q’emlin Park in Post Falls provided an awesome backdrop and lots of neat little areas to grab some portraits. We could’ve explored around there all day!

Andrew and Jamie brought me out to one of my favorite areas in this state — McCall, Idaho. Not only does this town share the same name as yours truly, it is one of the most scenic slices of land in the entire Pacific Northwest.   The wedding screamed Idaho, and reminded me of why […]

Not my first rodeo

The kind people at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds decided to put up with me for another year as their photographer for the weekend. It was another one for the books, and I was especially stoked they incorporated a big name concert (Dustin Lynch) into the festivities. I had a blast wandering around doing my thing […]

The Last Frontier

A few weeks ago I decided to impulse-buy a plane ticket to Anchorage to visit my brother working in Cooper Landing and do some exploring around the Kenai Peninsula (south of Anchorage) for five days. I knew Alaska would be beautiful, but man, this place really blew my mind!   The highlight of the trip […]
