Roseburg Ranch Wedding

Here is the first look at Jeremy and Kelsie's ranch wedding on Saturday near Roseburg, Ore. 
Kelsie's family ranch was the perfect setting for the day.

We had the photo booth set up in the barn. 

I'll be working to edit the rest of the photos over the next few days.  If you're interested in seeing more of my work take a look at my website.  I still have dates available for summer and fall.

Summer morning

The morning sun casts misty shadows as it shined through a stand of oak trees on a hillside near our home in southwestern Oregon.

Little tigers

Two rufous hummingbirds confront each other on a barbed wire fence along a pasture in rural Douglas County near Roseburg, Ore., on Wednesday, July 27, 2011. The tiny rufous hummingbird is known to travel over 2,000 miles on its yearly migration from Mexico to the western United States.
I love how these little birds seem pretty unafraid of humans.  They're so small and fast it's almost like they live in a different time-space continuum. Shot with my 600mm f/4 with a 1.4x teleconverter on my trusty Nikon D3s DSLR. It's a killer combo.

Photo Booth Fun

The photo booth action at Joel and Sarah's wedding near Roseburg, Ore., on Saturday was amazing.
My portable photo booth has an open design which allows for lots of interaction and big groups.

The photo both is fun for everyone.  The photobooth is great at any party.  Check my website to see more and check rates.


With each rental I provide an online facebook friendly gallery and a thumb drive with all images from the booth.  For weddings I also provide a guest album.  The guests take one side home and other goes in the album.

Cool cats

 I've been hanging out with some cool cats this evening. 

 I love the low angle view here.  The camera is actually on the ground and I'm shooting blind.  I call it the "worm's eye view". Fill flash is with a Nikon SB-600 on a synch cord.

Wedding photo booth

Epic photo booth fun at Aaron and Brandy's beach wedding in Charleston, Ore., last weekend.  The open design of my photobooth allows for fun interaction. 

The photo booth is awesome at any party or social gathering.  I'm a Roseburg, Oregon based wedding, portrait, commercial, and nature photographer. Check my website for rates.
 I can fit about 10 people in my booth, which makes for some crazy photos.
 With each photo booth rental I provide an attendant, guest album, props, and a sharable online gallery.

 Angry Birds!  I'm always looking for fun new props.

The photo strips print in 15 seconds.  The left side is for the album and the guests take the right side home.

Crossing over

While driving to photograph a wedding on the coast yesterday I come upon a turtle in the road.  He pulled himself into his shell and I waited for him to come out.  While I was waiting I turned and looked in the opposite direction and spotted the turkey and deer. 
 A few weeks ago I photographed a small fawn crossing the same road in almost the same spot...
And about a year ago I shot a snail crossing the same road.  Maybe I should publish a book.
