About a month ago I got the opportunity to shoot photos with the US Women’s Ski Jumping team for a few stories ESPN was doing on the team, and the road to their first ever Olympic event as women’s ski jumping will debut in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. I was out there to photograph a day in the life of the team, which not only involves the day to day training and jumping but in the case of this team it involves hustling in funds to support the team. The team members I got to work with are Abby Hughes, Alyssa Johnson, Jessica Jerome, Lindsey Van, Nina Lussi and Sarah Hendrickson. They are a great bunch of women that was pretty fun to work with. This is a selection of photos that ESPN used in a “Total Access” photo gallery. Check out the gallery here:

I shot Kenny and Erin’s wedding a few years back at Nature’s Connection Place in Arlington, Washington. I shot it for a fellow photographer that was in the wedding (groom’s sister) since she wouldn’t be able to. It’s great being asked by another photographer since they obviously like your work well enough they would recommend you, but at the same time you don’t know if they are going to make things easier, or micro-manage you into not shooting the wedding the way you’d want to. Fortunately in this case, she helped make this go by as the smoothest weddings I’ve ever photographed! It was like having an assistant, only they know absolutely everyone there so they can wrangle up all the guests for you! Nature’s Connection Place was a beautiful venue with a great staff, and the whole wedding party was super fun to work with and made for some great photos. I’m glad I had the opportunity to shoot this one!
Park City, Utah Wedding Photography – Erik and Amy – St.Mary’s Church – McPolin Farm – Swaner Preserve and Eco Center13Sep13
Erik and Amy were a super fun couple to shoot photos with a good crew of friends and family that made for shooting this multi-location wedding day fun and easy. Three locations for this wedding shoot, St. Mary’s Church (St. Mary of the Assumption) was such a wonderful venue that shoots great with a lot of natural afternoon light and of course the iconic McPolin Farm for the wedding party photos and the Swaner Preserve and Eco Center for the reception. I hope you like the photos!
Another wedding from a few years back that I neglected to post, Jason and Claire’s photos have been living on my hard drive (of course on theirs too) waiting for me to get bored enough to actually show people. Surprisingly enough considering I spend most of my time behind the lens in a snowy mountain environment shooting skiing, this was the first wedding I’ve shot with snow around. Also far from the norm for me, this wedding was a very small, intimate setting with a small group to match. Shot in a house in Deer Valley that hosted a few scenes from the movie Dumb and Dumber with a stop at the iconic white barn between Park City and Kimball Junction for some photos of the bride and groom, the reception finished up at the Slopes Restaurant at the Waldorf Astoria at Canyons Resort.
So I’ve been a bit of a slacker posting wedding photos, so much so that three years later I’m finally posting Rory and Hannah’s wedding from September, 2010 at St. Mary’s Church with the reception at Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah. Fall is quite the time to have a wedding in Park City with great fall foliage and great weather!
Photos from Kris and Tara’s wedding at Barber Park in Boise, Idaho. This was a super fun wedding with a lot of friends around, which of course made the reception that much more fun with a real good party.
