Chris & Marie

On August 25 we photographed the wedding of Chris Walson and Marie Herbig on Black Bird Farms. The weather was perfect that day. Just a wonderful wedding all around. We wish Marie and Chris all the best!

Katie is one of my recent senior sessions. She was fun and easy to work with which made for a good session with lots of great images. Here are some of my favorites.

Goat Lake

From 9/7 to 9/9 I spent several days in Goat Rocks Wilderness in (literally) and around Goat Lake. This area is snowbound for close to 10 months a year leaving a short window to get up there before the snow falls again, which I have been caught in on a Sept trip before! I brought my good friend Tyler backpacking for his first time and I believe have him hooked. Of course how could you not get excited in such a beautiful region with superb weather. As with any outing the goal is always to find and capture great images. Despite the dreaded forecast of clear skies for the whole time I would be out I ended up with some great images, including a few wispy clouds. If you have not backpacked to this area before you are in for a treat when you finally do. It's one of my favorite locations.

The image with the lake a bright opal teal color is Goat Lake. The color has not been modified, this is how it appears in real life since it's truly a glacial lake. And yes the name does ring true, you will see mountain goats on the hillside "walking" in areas we would have to work to climb as humans.
