Marie & Colt

Another outing as a hired hand to assist Penny McGoey of Becoming Images. I love working with Penny. She’s a blast, super creative, down to earth, and just plain awesome. Sometimes I show up as the odd-man-out because I don’t have any prior relationship with the bride and groom, so I’m often there behind a camera, letting Penny handle the relationship side of things while I quietly snap away hundreds of photos through the day. Not so this time!

I first met Colt 15 (or so) years ago. Marie wasn’t anywhere to be seen. Just recently they both resurfaced at a game of Ultimate Frisbee. What a cool couple. They’re both confident, capable, genuinely wonderful folks. And they’re quite the good looking duo too! Here’s a teaser – get the rest from http://becomingimages.com!

Foodie Photos?

Being multifaceted, I find myself presented with all kinds of new challenges. Recently, Venietia of V’s Cellar Door asked me if I could create an image that she could use for an advertisement board targeting passengers at the Juneau Visitor Center.

I should be clear: I don’t consider myself a food photographer. I like to eat food. I like good looking photos of food, but I’m not sure that I’ve ever taken a photo of plated food before, outside of some detail shots at a wedding buffet line!

Here’s the result. I had some help in determining angles, lighting, etc. from those who happened to be by the restaurant that day.

Also, these nachos are delicious!!!

Kimberley & Zachary

I had the good fortune to link up with Penny McGoey of Becoming Images to help photograph a beautiful wedding at the Twisted Fish with portraits at the Thane Orehouse property. The weather couldn’t have been more amazing, though we were expecting some sideways rain. For the rest, head over to http://becomingimages.com!

Olivia & Brice

Olivia & Brice came in from Missouri for their wedding at the Shrine of St. Therese. Their day was filled with beauty and antics (for instance, chasing several small dogs out of traffic). We shared in laughter and fun and the beauty of a cloudless Juneau day. Here’s one image I had shared on Facebook so their family & friends at a distance could see how stunning this duo is.

Kjerstin & Brandon

Just a few from Kjerstin & Brandon’s wedding. These two are amazing and have an amazing collection of people who love them. I’m such a lucky guy to have gotten the opportunity to photograph their wedding day. I’m stoked to have their album finished in the next few weeks!

Hannah & Kaleb

Love these guys. I’ve known Kaleb and the McGoey’s since they got into town, and it’s been fun to watch him grow up, graduate, and now get married. I’m not sure what it was about this ceremony, but I noticed myself tearing up behind the camera often. Good thing I have a big hunk of glass to hide my eye-sweat. 😉

Wearable Arts

Each year the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council steps out to create an absolutely amazing event: Wearable Arts.

It is one of the largest events in Juneau each year, and I can only presume that it will continue to grow. Artists work for months in advance to prepare pieces of art that they or their model will strut down the runway in front of an at-capacity audience in Centennial Hall. Every piece is amazing; we have some phenomenal talent in Juneau!

In short, you don’t want to miss it.

But, over the last few years, that’s exactly what I did. With my wedding & portrait photography, a full time job, being married (etc, etc) photography was often kept (somewhat intentionally) on the backburner in order to prepare for the upcoming spring and summer busyness.

This year though, Nancy reached out to ask if I could be the primary event photographer as their normal go-to-gal, Seanna Hines (Seanna O’Sullivan Photography) was unavailable this year. I agreed (somewhat reluctantly) as being away from Heather with only 4 weeks to go in our pregnancy isn’t so appealing.

Hello Again

I’ve been away from the blog for what feels like a long, long time. I’ll be starting to post a few to try to catch up and get back to the place of regular updates now that life has started to level out. With a baby on the way (our first), a job change, a move, car purchases & travel, our plates have been full. Finally though, my shoulders are starting to drop.

So, to tide you over, here’s a selfie of two remarkably busy individuals who are excited about life and our future.
