A day at the beach | Family Adventure Photography

If you’re taking your family on an adventure.
If you’re going to get your feet sandy, and some towels wet.
If you don’t mind the wind in your hair, but want to remember the smiles on your faces,
then I’m the photographer for you, because I’m not your average reunion photographer.
I’ll go where you go.
I’ll hike with you and boat with you.
And along the way I’ll capture your family having a blast, be it at the beach or up the canyon.  The Bear Lake area is THE place where families come to play.

Let me document your next vacation adventure.

The story of Krystal and Nick’s wedding

It all began a few days before the wedding when I drove north into Idaho’s beautiful farm country. Wrapping around rolling hills with small kisses of fall color I came to Krystal’s childhood home where the ceremony would take place. Projects were still in the works, but the yard was ramping up for a lovely wedding location. I met her dad with a bit of country charm and we drove out to the family land where the bridal party pictures would be taken. He told me about the pond, and the fishing, and the cows in the distance, and I was just thrilling inside about this secluded, charming location.

That Saturday afternoon, wedding day, I met Krystal getting ready with her bridesmaids and mothers. Walking through the home, you could feel it full of anticipation and love. Nick was ready outside, waiting for Krystal and the ceremony to begin. Their beloved dogs where part of the procession, “Best Dog” and “Dog of Honor”. The afternoon winds dropped by as if to wish the couple a happy wedding day.

At the reception, setting light poured in through the trees as friends and families danced together. I stepped back for a moment with a full heart at the amount of love.
Once Nick and Krystal were ready to leave, everyone lined the walk with sparklers and cheers.
It was a beautiful day.

One epic summer | family adventure photography

If you’re taking your family on an adventure.
If you’re going to get some dirt on your shoes, and some towels wet.
If you don’t mind the wind in your hair, but want to remember the smiles on your faces,
then I’m the photographer for you, because I’m not your average reunion photographer.
I’ll go where you go.
I’ll hike with you and float with you.
And along the way I’ll capture your family having a blast.  Be it in the mountains or on the lake.  The Bear Lake area is THE place where families come to play.

Below I went with this group to Bloomington Lakes in Idaho.  We had planned to enjoy the rope swing, but sadly it had been cut down.  So on we went to the rocks for some cliff jumping.   And, yes that is some pretty cold water at 8500 elevation, but the kids jumped right in.  We didn’t take group pictures here, and saved that for our day at the beach.  But our time was well spent with fishing, splashing and climbing.

Let me photograph your next family adventure.
