I love taking our time to explore and push the bounds of wedding photography the morning after the wedding. Telling stories of the night before, and letting our hair down to Rev It Up! ( Plus I got to use my Flying Hasselblad Camera!) This couple should be on the cover of the REI catalogue- their weekends are spent hiking, climbing and in nature. We started off on the creek next to the wedding at Orchard Canyon,( wedding venue) […]

Amtrak Texas Eagle- to the Sunset Limited in San Antonio- through the west and Palm Springs. Vignettes from the 40 plus hour trip. Cameo by my car attendant Roman. I love the train, books in my beat up pink suitcase remain unopened as hypnotizing scenery commands all one’s attention. 48 hours of forced meditation. Big Skies of Texas, through Austin and San Antonio.
