Epic Saturday

My dear friend Marne and I had a great time this past Saturday out in the mountain area of San Diego. She was feeling the itch to get away from the city for a bit, and I having spent the last 4 1/2 years where there are no mountains, I was up for it too. We started out with a great hike along the Pacific Crest Trail up near Mt Laguna. The views down to the desert from 6,000 feet are captivating. Afterwards, we were considering another hike, but I was starting to get a couple blisters. I had been […]

The San Diego Trip

I had a chance to run home to San Diego for a few days over Christmas. Here are a few pictures from the trip. The first two were from a small town in Texas on I-10 just as the sun was setting. The next five were taken at White Sands National Monument. Unfortunately, I ended up having to go home early when Heather’s dog, Moen, had to be put down. I really miss him. On the way back I grabbed a sunset in the Imperial Valley, and a Sun/Moonrise on the I-10 coming back into Texas. It was a bitter […]

Great hikes to do in Austin

The Barton Creek Greenbelt has been beckoning for a little over a year for Heather and I to come back and take the hike down to Sculpture Falls. We had gone a couple times before with our good friends Amber and Sarah (We’ll be visiting them in South-East Asia this summer if we can wrangle up some duckets). With the wild outdoors calling and our winter-leaguered & pent up dogs, Moen and Luke, Heather and I decided to use the weekends to walk on dirt instead of treadmills. Barton Creek Greenbelt and Sculpture Falls. This is a beautiful hike that […]

A New Beginning

I started giving it some thought as my own wedding approached. I had the other Heather in my life, Heather Van Gaale from San Diego flying in soon and we were talking often. We would reminisce about the hijinx we would get into while shooting weddings together. That’s fun. That’s exciting. That’s why I started shooting weddings, for the energy and the great photos you can get from each wedding. Maybe it’s just one photo that blows your mind from any given event, but every Saturday you photographed was one of the best Saturdays ever for a group of people. […]

Muy Rrrrrrico!

We chose Puerto Rico as our Honeymoon location because it was a cheap airfare and it held a fascination for both of us. The lure of Old San Juan, the Taino culture, the potential for amazing beaches to lay out on, and most definitely food! Oh… and apparently P.R. is the Hawaii of the Atlantic, boasting legendary surf spots (just not while I was there). Perhaps Heather and I are spoiled from the unique, warm and inviting nature of the people in Thailand. We had a lovely time, but Puerto Rico didn’t quite live up to all we were expecting. […]
