these beautiful humans drove down from Idaho for their engagements! We hiked up a trail and ran around in the mountains. Truly it was a DREAM. Everything was so orange and so warm and SO pretty. Maryssa’s hair was amazing, and the sunset was beautiful. I freaking love autumn and I’m sad it’s supposed to snow soon lol. Who’s with me?
The moment right after the bride’s mom helps her get into her dress is always special! It’s full of so much love and anticipation❤️
Today I photographed a Black Sabbath band member. Dave Walker is a British guitarist and singer who back in the 70’s worked with Fleetwood Mac, Black Sabbath and many others. My list of models who have an actual Wikipedia page is getting longer 🤠
Ok friends ... I’m officially calling myself a celebrity photog 😂😂😂 just kidding that would be so annoying ... do you know who this is ??? If you don’t you should because she is one of the most down to earth, real, famous bloggers ever .... it’s Melanie from @melskitchencafe! Yes I know so exciting! As most of you know for my mental heath I can’t follow too many “super cool” Instagram people but I can follow her and she is super cool and has incredible recipes, content and halarious videos (and I don’t watch a lot Instagram videos) but I have watched hers ... I knew the moment I first read about her hiding in her pantry and eating fistfuls of chocolate chips that we could be insta kindred spirits ... aaaannnyways when she came to her session while we were shooting I kept thinking ... I know this woman ... but I don’t know this woman ... you know ? I knew her face I knew her voice but seeing a person in real life that I had only seen in a little tiny square plus I associated her page with Mel not Melanie (which was the person I was texting with this week ) .... anywaaaaays.... Finally I just asked her how she found me ... and it all came out and oh my gosh .... I was shooting a famous person ... I mean she’s been on the today show !!! But .... at the end of the day ... we are all just people trying to make our way in this world the best we can and no matter who you are where you are you you are worth just as much as any other person and I could feel that from Melanie tonight ... I think she believes the same and I love that about her. And can we just talk about this picture ? If you scroll my feed it is rare that a cover photo is a mom and dad ... ironically they might be my favorite to shoot it’s just the way the cookie crumbles but I knew as soon as I took this shot I would share it ... every woman in the world deserves to be adored like this guy adores Melanie....and the second pic is of her crazy cute family... and her face in that picture so perfectly says who she is ... and I love it. And people ....FALL is really showing off this week!
Okay three things: first thing HI 👋🏼 how are you doing today? 💛 second thing: I have a new Instagram profile photo of me wearing my favorite @gigipip hat (here it is) and three: have you seen my newest YouTube video?!

“WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?”
for this month’s @proofcrewambassador prompt, i’d like to share my why behind photography - i am inspired by the world that we live in + thrive on capturing these moments in time that move me to feel, think + dream. the fact that i get to share this with you + the world makes it even more rewarding, making you feel, think + dream too, hopefully. “and if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though i’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though i had forgotten to wake up. i know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible.” preach, richard avedon.

3 generations of wedding rings. 3 incredible women. 3 unique journeys of love. Out of all the images I’ve taken in my wild photography walk of life, this one is the most powerful. I was so happy when Melissa said she wanted to set it up! 💛
