WHY I DO THIS

TO TELL STORIES OF SENDS, SWELLS, AND SWITCHBACKS

I know firsthand the importance of this big decision—not just to get married but how you celebrate. My wife and I eloped in Northern Ireland. Getting married on the cliffs, with castle ruins behind us, sharing that experience just with her. Man, there’s nothing like it!

It was life-changing for us, and I want it to be that way for you, too. It’s not about the color-coordinated bridal parties or the posed photos or the likes on Insta. It’s about a real, intimate adventure that is true to you!

YOUR GUIDE WITH A BEARD, A CAMERA, A LOVE FOR NATURE

A buddy once said I was a mix of Indiana Jones and Ansel Adams. I’m not about to argue with that.

I’m with you on this wild adventure from the minute we connect—narrowing down locations, guiding your day with a customized timeline (while always following LNT Ethics), and tackling logistics.

I’m invested in my craft and my couples to capture authentic, candid shots paired with gorgeous portraits that highlight your relationship and the landscape equally!

I'VE FOUND MY HOME AND PASSIONS IN COLORADO

a life in nature

I’m a Colorado-based free spirit with a dedication to exploring this wild world. My adventures have taken me from Patagonia to the Italian Dolomites, across Canada, Europe, and thirteen U.S. National Parks.

The fuel to my passions are found in the peaks and valleys of the mountains—the crisp air, the shock of jumping into an alpine lake, the thrill of chasing every sunset. It’s forged a connection not just to the environment, but to people. That’s my special sauce right there. My passion for sharing my heart and my love of the outdoors are combined as an adventure elopement photographer.

When I’m back on concrete in Denver, I binge-watch The Office, hang with my amazing wife and our corgi, and cheer for the 49ers.

I found my true calling with a camera deep in the backcountry of Colorado

There are few things I love more than waking up to the first light on the horizon while camped next to an alpine lake, or watching the sun set over distant peaks with my dog and adventure partner Enzo by my side. For me it is always about finding your “why,” and it is in those fleeting moments in the wilderness that I always find mine. I love helping couples affirm their own relationships in the places and scenes that I cherish so dearly.

I cherish everything about the adventures that will make your day so special, from route planning to gear checks, to finding that perfect vista for an unforgettable sunset photograph.  I always strive to create stunning imagery with feeling and emotion, all the while showcasing the environment and the people in it at their absolute peak.

When I'm not out shooting photos, you can find me at home in the kitchen cooking or indulging my obsession with all things movie related.  Chances are though that I'm somewhere on a trail with my dog Enzo, and if there's snow on the ground the safest bet is that I'm out skiing.
