Our family is everything to me! I love to laugh – Wendy says it’s what attracted her to me – and I thought it was my “blue steel” good looks. Being married and a dad is an adventure every day as we squeeze every moment to the fullest in our awesome mountain town. And…through all this somehow I even find time to do the (way too many) sports I love?! I’m a wedding and portrait photographer because I get to meet awesome people and create images that are not only thrilling to view but cherished as important memories for generations to come (no pressure right?!). To have anyone who works with me see their inner beauty in a way they might have never seen in themselves is my goal. Oh, and did I forget to say that our families passion to travel the world is as strong as breathing? Ask me about my Couch Surfing experiences throughout the world!
What I love most about photography is connecting with incredible people and documenting their emotional and raw journey throughout their wedding day. Supporting their vision and creating a stress-free space of presence is what I feel adds the most to our couple’s experience in working with us on their wedding experience. After 10 years and hundreds of weddings, we can use any light, any situation and create unique images – that’s the beauty of working with an experienced team. The focus becomes how best to serve our clients in their needs while the creation of art, reading the best light and having some fun is more automatic. I love using off-camera flash during the getting ready portion of the day to create some dramatic light and capture the emotions to new heights. Outside of weddings, our daughter Shelby steals my heart and I’m constantly running around after her and adventuring with swimming, skiing and camping! I also run the Adventure Box Photo Booth, our sister company, helping couples let loose a little with their guests and be goofy!
How far will Byron go to get the shot? That is the magic question! Here’s some fun behind the scenes pics where he knows no bounds.
From climbing trees to scaling rocks and laying down in the middle of the street, Byron will do anything for the best angle…here, enjoy some of our fav #bts wedding moments on our Instagram feed!
Getting to meet new people feeds my soul! Shelby Mustangs, James Bond, Indiana Jones, Pulp Fiction, Cappuccino’s in Italy (let’s just be honest here and say traveling the world!), Anthony Robbins, xc ski racing (and ripping groomers and pow on the alpine side!!), rock climbing, love of animals..dogs!, Duran Duran, sailing, modern architecture, Belgian beers!!, Mark Nason boots, Aston Martin, Metallica (80’s metal for sure!), Ferrari’s (who doesn’t right?), Road/Mtn biking, strange foods like blood sausage and liver–don’t forget stinky cheese!!, surfing, 80’s bands like The Cure & New Order, Industrial Music!, Kenneth Cole clothing, our 1967 candy red fastback Mustang “RITA” and of course my sweet daughter and talented wife. Annnnd….that’s just the start!
Sunflowers and gerber daisey’s, soft boiled eggs and breakfast for dinner, vanilla lattes, freshies on a 8” powder day skiing, magic light during sunset, Metric (the band!), yoga, roller skating, European travel, hot springs, web marketing, my incredible mommy group and most importantly my incredible daughter SHELBY and my talented husband 🙂 Love you babe!
