Allison & Jonathan’s wedding at Grand Canyon National Park

Allison and Jonathan’s wedding was one of my favorite’s in recent memory. Unique in a lot of ways, but the first being it was at Shoshone Point at the Grand Canyon. Talk about an incredible venue with a view! But they also decided to have a mid-day ceremony, with the reception right after and portraits after the party was over just before sunset.

Which was perfect. With all the craziness done, the three of us were able to just hang out for 45 minutes…take photos, talk, relax and then take more photos. And as we just waited and waited for the sun to go down, suddenly the sky lit up…the colors was stunning and it was the only end you could ask for when you’re at the Grand Canyon.

Thanks to Allison and Jonathan for trusting me with their big day, I’m so pumped I could be a part of this!

First look at Reed and Maria’s wedding on a volcano in Nicaragua

There are no words to describe how surreal the last six days have been. When Reed Timmer and Maria Molina asked me to shoot their wedding earlier this year, I was beyond excited and hugely honored. But when they said it would be up on the edge of Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, I almost passed out. A volcano? Are you serious? I’m in!

The experience was incredible. Being in Granada at midnight on Christmas Eve for the fireworks and celebrations, then a marathon 14-hour wedding on the 26th that included the unbelievable sight of lava glowing at the bottom of the crater after sunset and a reception that ended in a wicked fireworks display…it was one of those times that you’ll never forget.

I don’t have enough words to thank Reed and Maria for trusting me with capturing their wedding. Not only are they amazing people, but both their families were so warm and inviting, I truly felt like I was part of them for my short time there. I know I made a bunch of new friends and I hope to run into them again someday!

Mad props to Maria who planned the entire wedding almost single-handedly from all the way in New York! She pulled off a fantastic event and even though nothing is ever perfect on a wedding day, this one ended up as about as storybook as you could get. If the ceremony hadn’t started later than it was supposed to, we likely would have missed out on all the gorgeous colors and the lava glow after sunset. I love how everything just works out for the best.

Life is funny…just 7-8 years ago I started watching Reed on Storm Chasers on the Discovery Channel and I had no clue people who shared the same passion as me for the weather actually went out and chased storms. Now to have turned that passion into a career as a professional photographer and to be able to capture moments like this…wow…God is good. I’m so stoked to be able to share a glimpse into their big day and I’m over the moon proud of all these images.

Congrats Reed and Maria!!!
