40 Days in our Four Wheel Camper: Moab, UT

We're half way thru our trip already!  We're still in Utah soaking up the last of this beautiful fall weather and while we haven't had great cell signal, I've still been making little videos of our trip along the way.  Our second stop of the trip was in Moab.  Moving...

40 days in our Four Wheel Camper: McInnis Canyons, CO

Whenever we take off in our truck camper, weather it be for 2 weeks or 2 months, we tend to cover a lot of ground.  In other words, we spend A LOT of time driving.  You can only do that for so long before you realize, you can never see it all.  I always have a running...

Road Trippin’ Day 1: getting our groove back

Yesterday was a VERY good day.  It was the first day of our annual winter road trip.  Since last year's trip had to be cancelled due to health issues and this summer was the busiest our business has ever had, we could not be happier to be back on the road!  It felt...

An airplane update: finding out if the engine will run

When we bought our Kitfox airplane three weeks ago, we bought it knowing there was a possibility it would need a new motor.  We got such a great deal, the airframe alone was worth the price we paid, that we were willing to take the risk of having to buy a new motor. ...

Happy Marriage. Happy Life.

Let's talk about marriage. You know the saying "happy wife, happy life"?  We hear it nearly every weekend (we photograph weddings for a living), it's the go-to ending for every father's toast.  While that saying always gets a good laugh, it's true.  But that's only...

We bought a Kitfox airplane (and trailered it home)!

Tuesday was one of those days that we'll never forget.  After a year-long, exhaustive search for an airplane that would fit our budget, our lifestyle and would perform well in the mountains...we finally found it.  And in the most unexpected way. Through the EAA...

Say “Yes!” and add more life to your days

Remember Jim Carrey's movie "Yes Man"?  A few weeks ago while visiting my family in Arizona I adopted that idea, the idea of saying "yes" more instead of no.  This somewhat subconscious thought was inspired by my adorable nieces.  Let me explain. I am not a kid...

Celebrating Spring in Utah!

Hello Everybody, it's been too long! This winter consisted of two surgeries for me (Michele) and nearly five months on the couch.  It was long, stressful, boring and filled with more Mario Brothers than I ever hope to play again in my life : )  I could not be happier...

Flavors of the West: our favorite small town restaurants

Sometimes, after camping in the middle of nowhere for several days, nothing sounds better than having a hot meal prepared for you.  Other times, when passing through a small town that captivates us with it's character, there's no better way to become a part of it for...

Exploring Loveland Pass

Last night I took a drive up to Loveland Pass to photograph some time-lapse sequences just for fun.  If you've never been over Loveland Pass (or any mountain pass in Colorado for that matter) they're not a place you casually hang out at during the winter.  The summit...

What we’ve been up to…

Since this website always gets shoved to the back burner the second half of the year, I thought I'd share what we've been up to lately before we (hopefully) move forward with regular posts again!  June-October is when our photography business kicks in to high gear...

Portable Folding Solar Panel: Zamp Solar

Last year we added to our solar supply with a portable folding 80 watt Zamp Solar panel that we got from Chris at Rocky Mountain Four Wheel Campers in Denver.  Our solar setup now includes the Zamp panel (seen above right), our DIY 120 watt panel that stows beneath...
