    About a month after we got back from Denmark and Sweden Tay found another great deal on tickets.  This time it was to Paris in May, just another month away, so we decided to go ahead with honeymoon round two!  Paris would have been awesome enough on its own, but since London was a fairly…

    After spending a few days in Copenhagen we hopped on a train to Stockholm.  Copenhagen is right on the border between Denmark and Sweden which are separated by a seven mile wide straight.  Normally a large section of a bridge like this would need to be a tall suspension bridge or drawbridge to allow ships…

    When Tay and I got married a year and a half ago we had originally planned to go on a honeymoon but didn’t know where.  With all the craziness of planning the wedding and figuring out where to live, any thought of a trip got pushed to the side.  Even so, we still wanted to…

    If you follow this blog at all then some of these photos might seem a little familiar.  Hannah and Vince got married in the Seattle LDS Temple which is a place Tay and I have taken photos at many times.  Even though we’re so familiar with the grounds there, when we arrived it quickly became…

    Tay and I recently went to Australia for a couple weeks.  I’ll have more to say about the trip when I post photos from our time there but today I have family photos to share that we took while we were there.  We stayed with our friend, Jessica, in Melbourne.  Her whole family was great…

    I have some super old photos to share today.  I took these in August of last year (2015) not long before I got married.  I’m not much for drinking or partying, so my best man, Frankie, and I decided to recreate one of our favorite camping trips from when we were in scouts together.  We…

    I’m so excited to share these senior photos today!  Tay and I love Port Gamble but have never had the opportunity to take photos there.  If you follow highway 16 north from Gig Harbor for about an hour it will take you straight there.  It’s just a few minutes past the Hood Canal Bridge.  It’s…

    The morning of Maya’s shoot had some on and off light rain.  I was really glad that they were okay with braving the weather because the morning reiterated why I love rainy day shoots.  The light always seems to look amazing and I just love how everything looks in the rain.  We used a clear…

  • blake

    Before meeting up with Blake for his senior photos I was told that he wears cowboy boots and flannels, and that old buildings, barns, and fields would be good.  The spot that instantly came to mind was Fort Steilacoom Park.  Those things describe the park perfectly.  I hadn’t been there for quite awhile and my…

    Tay and I met up with Betty at Wilkinson Farm on an overcast morning after a night of rain.  She needed a few photos for her website.  The natural looking park along with its community garden was the perfect location.   We had a lot of fun choosing different outfit combinations (props to Tay) and walking…

  • the toys

    Tay took these awesome family photos in downtown Tacoma during a break in all the rainy weather we’ve been having this fall.  She’s been taking photos for the Toys for years so it’s awesome that she had the chance once again.  I had planned on going along, especially since she often comes to shoots with…

  • daniel & kirsten

    Tay and I recently went on a two week trip to the southwest.  We house sat for the first week in Utah before driving to Southern California and eventually back home from there.  On our last night there we ended up with just enough time to take engagements for Kirsten and Daniel in Rock Canyon,…
