Historical Architecture

Something that most people don't know about me is that I am really really into historical architecture. It makes me all giddy to think about it. Its pretty nerdy I have been told.

I have been working on a project for a few years now and I thought I would finally post a couple of the photos. I absolutely love driving around and looking at old homes and buildings that might be historical and then researching their significance. So here are two from my project, both in Salt Lake City. In print form, they are printed as post cards with the info on the back, just to give you an idea of the look.

Unfortunately, this building was torn down just a few days ago, so I feel very fortunate to have taken this photo just a month ago, but very bummed that the building is gone. The back of the post card was obviously rewritten due to this.


Throwing rocks

Here's another photo from my trip to Vancouver, Canada. Enjoy!


This boy claimed he was 14, but I have a hard time believing that he is any older than 8



This is my beautiful friend Cate, who is also a photographer. She let me use her as a model forever ago and I never posted the photos, so here they are at last.

Cody & Caitlin

Last weekend I photographed Caitlin and Cody who just got engaged. They braved the freezing cold temperatures and were easy going and wonderful to photograph. I wish you two the best of luck in your future!


Salt Flats

Here's another photo from my drive to San Francisco. Right after I took this photo, it made me think of photos that my friend Weston has taken while driving in the car. I did get out though to take this one though. It wasn't shot at 75 mph or whatever like his.


Unincorporated town, Nevada

I recently got back from an amazing platinum workshop in San Francisco with photographer/genius Mark Nelson. The workshop was amazing and made me wish I had lots of money to build my own darkroom for platinum printing . . . one day it'll happen.

I never had the chance to photograph in the city, but I did drive to and from San Francisco with my love which was great! And I had the chance to take a few photos along the way.

This was some tiny unincorporated town in Nevada. There was a sign, but I can't remember the name of it, I do remember that the population of the town was 26.


Sheffield Family

Last weekend I photographed this wonderful family. They were amazing, but I might be slightly biased considering that its my cousin's family. Either way, they were completely natural in front of the camera and the boys were so much fun.



While in a small village in China, we came across this dog and I could not get over how he looked. He didn't even look alive. He tongue hung out the whole time. I thought the little broom just added to the scene.



Steve and Nicole

I had the opportunity to photograph Steve and Nicole's wedding yesterday and it was really fun. I must be honest and say that I have always had a huge fear of photographing the actual wedding day and stick to just the engagements and bridals. But it was actually fun and I really enjoyed it. It definitely helped that these two are amazing and both their families were great to work with. I think that I could even handle doing it again. Here is one photo from our shoot after the wedding. More to come later.



I really really miss this place.
