Reno Wedding Photographer captures Rancharrah Wedding

Reno Wedding Photographer captures Rancharrah Wedding

Follow As a Reno Wedding Photographer  one of the more beautiful locations to photograph a couple in town is definitely Rancharrah.   There are multiple stunning scenic areas all over the property to capture the bride and groom on their special day.  The whole venue presents like something out of a fairy tale; complete with its own amazing mansion.  One of my favorite areas on the property is the large pond area in front of the mansion.  It provides the opportunity to capture the couple with their reflection in the water.  Whenever possible I love to create reflection images for the bride and the groom.  I even requested we get a photo in a similar fashion for my beautiful wife and I on our wedding day.  It was by far one of my favorite photos from our special day. One of my amazing couples that hired me to photograph their wedding, Christy and Frank, have their one year anniversary coming up about a month from now.  It got me thinking about the photos from their wedding and I decided to put together a little slide show video from their incredible day as a token of my appreciation for their trust in me.  Choosing a Reno Wedding Photographer is one of the most important decisions a couple will make when planning for their special day.  After the cake and food is all gone and all the guests have gone home the photos are one of the only things a couple will be able to keep and cherish for decades to come.  Anytime a couple honors me with the opportunity to capture their wedding I never take the...

Follow Fitness Photography is one of the areas of photography I am most passionate about.  It speaks to me on a personal level as physical fitness has been a part of my life from a young age.  Being a small kid in high school isn’t easy.  I turned to martial arts and weight training at a young age to try to build myself up both mentally and physically.  Both marital arts and bodybuilding take a significant amount of dedication to reach the goals a person sets out to achieve.  When it comes to great Fitness Photography so many important aspects come into play.  The first and most important aspect is the subjects conditioning.  If the subjects conditioning isn’t at their best this could make or break a photo session.  As an example, I had photographed a male fitness competitor on a couple different occasions.  Our first shoot was on point both from a photography perspective and from the clients conditioning perspective.  So the next time I got a call to photograph him I was expecting the same level of conditioning from our first session.  Unfortunately, he had dieted so strictly and reduced his water intake so much that his muscles looked flat and he no longer had the look he desired for the photo session. The next most important aspect is the lighting and composition of the photos.  How you light the human body and compose the photos is absolutely critical to shape the muscles and define the fitness subject.  Placing the lights at the proper angle and power setting in order to get just enough light on the face and eyes while...

Follow As a Reno photographer there are many great restaurants and bars that I have the opportunity to provide photography services for as well as many great local magazines that feature stories on all the amazing local businesses Northern Nevada has to offer.  About this time last year I was able to create some editorial photography for Draft Magazine of Art Farley, owner of Brasserie Saint James.  This was a fun shoot, as Art and the publication were terrific to work with.  You are probably wondering: why I am just posting this up now!?  Well, in the world of editorial photography sometimes different publications have what’s called first publication rights, or exclusive use rights, for a period of time.  In this case, first use rights were for 1 year.  So I couldn’t really share them until now! If you haven’t been down to the Brasserie Saint James for the amazing food and beer you are really missing out!  If you are a beer connoisseur you should also really check out Draft Magazine for the latest and greatest.       Here is a link to the online article from Draft Magazine where one of my photos of Art was used.  Thank you for taking the time to check out my photography!!!   http://draftmag.com/brasserie-st-james-watch-farley/   I hope you loved these photos and enjoyed hearing about my photographic adventures.  If you enjoyed this post please share it with your friends and family.  Stay tuned for more photography, follow me on Facebook ,  and sign up for more of my adventures below.   Follow my photographic adventures!

Follow One of the joys of being a Reno Photographer is consistently getting to photograph amazing people, especially incredibly talented models.  Sara Carlson is one of my favorite local models to work with.  She has an amazing look, beautiful smile, is highly intelligent, and is always in incredible shape.  I wanted to take some photos of Sara in the Nevada desert outside of Reno, but I wanted to incorporate a classic rat rod truck.  Thankfully my good buddy Phil had the perfect 1966 Ford F100 truck that was exactly what I was looking for, so we all jumped into our vehicles and headed out to the location that I had in mind for our shoot.  After arriving at our initial location and finding it was closed off and not available to photograph at, we started to drive further and deeper into the desert in search of the right place to create the images I had in my mind.  After driving for some time I saw a hawk flying over head as we turned down the path that I was confident would produce the perfect location for us.  Sure enough, after a few more minutes of driving we came upon a spot that looked perfect for our shoot.  Check out some images from our photo shoot! After the end of the shoot we started packing  up my camera and lighting gear only to have my buddy Phil discover a rattlesnake parked under my vehicle rattling his tail to let us know to back off.  As we all debated our strategy on how to get the gear into the vehicle before...
