Engagement :: Jessica & Chris :: Ketchum, Idaho

I'm going to have the privilege of photographing Jessica and Chris' wedding this Fourth of July at Tamarack Resort near McCall, Idaho. Today, they drove in from Boise and we headed out for their engagement photos. It was a great time getting to know Jessica & Chris & their two dogs, Hailey & Stanley. We photographed North of Ketchum at the 4H cabin & Billy's Bridge area, as well as inside the city limits. Ketchum is a super small town and I am always trying to find new places to photograph as I do not like replicating shots. It was fun finding some new backdrops in places I hadn't looked before. Here are some of their shots...

Rise and Shine for some Backcountry Skiing

My alarm went off at 3:50 a.m. the other morning. I tried to set it low enough so as to not wake my wife. I snuck out of the bedroom, got dressed into some ski clothes next to the laundry room, and hoped not to wake the neighbors when the car turned over. I went out back country skiing with a few friends out near Triumph, Idaho. It had been a long time since I'd seen the sun rise from a mountain top. Here are some images....

Wedding :: Kailie & Kevin :: Sun Valley, Idaho

Just before I left for Mexico I received a phone call from Jane McCann who is another local photographer here in the Wood River Valley. She called asking if I could cover a wedding for her as she had broken her right wrist--her shooting wrist. I had the date free and was able to help out. And so I was able to meet and photograph Kailie and Kevin, their friends and family, who were a hoot (I don't think I've used that word on my blog before) to work for! They were up for anything, even an impromptu stop at a laundromat en route to their reception. Here are some of their images. Congratulations Kaile & Kevin!
