A little over a week ago, work sent me to Anchorage for a couple of days. Given some solo time in a new place, I took the chance to bring some camera gear along. I had initially planned to look for and photograph Sheep or Mountain Goat along the Seward Highway, but I was met with bare rock (and no animals). Fortunately, not being one to give up hope, I took a bit more of a scenic route on my return and came across a couple of moose! Enjoy!

Jessica & Xavier

Yay for beautiful sunshine and wonderful weddings. This Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing Jessica & Xavier’s wedding day. These two are a blast and they’ve got a tight-knit group of friends which made for lots of fun hanging out under a waterfall during the wedding party photos.

I’m just posting a few highlights; I was on staff for Becoming Images this time around, so Penny will get images processed and posted as soon as her wedding season calms down.

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!




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!
