I love Dez and Clare. They're the kind of people who really listen to you. They listen and they ask great questions, and so you feel heard and cared for by them. They also laugh. A lot. And if you hang out with them, you will too. It was for these reasons, and many others that I was so thrilled when they got engaged, and equally as thrilled when I had the honor of photographing their wedding. Dez and Clare are a magnetic and dynamic couple, so it's no surprise that their wedding was the same. Enjoy these photos of an epic party to celebrate the love of two extraordinary people!

A this wedding had it all: love, fun, adventure - including the bride and groom water skiing away from their ceremony across the lake to their reception.

Shot for LandMine Design in Colorado.
LandMine Design employs women living on a former minefield in Cambodia. The program allows them to earn an income by creating jewelry, and to be educated in the areas of business/finance, literacy, and health/hygiene. The goal for these women is sustainability. Each dollar earned moves them closer to being able to hire more women.
Shot all over Japan.
Japan. My first love and constant photo inspiration. I find this country a magical home for my heart, and natural fit for my camera.
Shot in the outdoors.
From the beaches of Japan to the mountains of Colorado I am in awe of natural beauty that's not hard to find if you just go outside.

Each year after New Year's Day all Daruma are brought back to the temple they were purchased from to be burned in a traditional ceremony. After the Daruma are burned, a new one is purchased.
Shot in Siem Reap and the Minefield Village.
Cambodia is a land of utter desperation alongside amazing beauty. The people of this country possess a gentleness and at the same time a grit I've long admired. Through my work in community development there I've seen firsthand the resilience of the human spirit.
