Love, Literally

I get asked quite a bit if I shoot weddings.  My answer is: I do.  But I don't necessarily consider myself a "wedding photographer".  The biggest difference between myself and a wedding photographer is that they must give up their weekends during most of the summer for their shoots.  Most of my business takes place in my studio or on-location and mostly during the week.

With that being said, when a couple does book me for a wedding I have an incredibly good time.  Maybe it's because there's always dancing and laughing and smiling faces and that makes me happy.  Or maybe it's because, in my job, I don't often get to capture true love on camera.  And when I do, it takes my breath away.

I was somewhere around the edge of the desert...

It's a rare occurrence for me to have a full week off during the month so when I was contracted to do some filming in Arizona I jumped on the chance to drive myself there instead of fly and take a week photographing the deserts of Nevada on my way down.

Having time to explore I opted to stay off the interstate and take roads that had far fewer people on them, some of them not on my map.  At one point I realized I had traveled for nearly an hour on one stretch of road and hadn't seen another soul.  Well that's not entirely true, I stopped and said hello to a couple cows.  They weren't much into talking.

Below are some photographs taken during the trip.  Shot with a Nikon FE.
