Charm & Ben

Charm and Ben are getting married. While that on its own is exciting news, they also asked me to document their big day. We celebrated with a walk through the gorge on a cold fall day in 2019. Hiking, snow, salmon - this engagement session had it all.

An X-Pro3 for a Few Days

“Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”. This sentiment has been hammered into my head regularly since I was a child. Usually, I would question it because the person saying it didn’t seem to be particularly happy. After all, if we are supposed to find a way to make our passion profitable, where does the term “starving artist” fit in?

I’ve found that it’s easy to get caught in a trap as a photographer. You can start to take jobs that aren’t exciting anymore, or become so busy doing the same thing that you stop growing. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll notice that I started a series called “52 Fridays”. The idea is to post a short photoset that can tell a story from one day of that week for an entire year. Think of it as a 365 for someone who has a toddler. So far, January has been a blast. To send the first month off with a bang, I decided to try something new.

I’m currently in the process of switching to Fujifilm (sorry Canon) and decided to try the X-Pro3 out for a long weekend. Don’t worry, this isn’t a technical camera review. There is plenty to say about the amazing features of this camera, and you can find hundreds of blogs all about those with a quick Google search. 

Shoutout to for being a genuinely easy company to work with.
