Jon and Carley met in college and moved to Leavenworth shortly after to play in the mountains. After a few years they moved to the Seattle area where they still try and get as much play time in as they can while still working the “real job” scene. When they’re not spending time gardening or […]

It was there that I fostered my love for photography and capturing the beauty of those majestic Teton peaks. While I still photograph 4-5 weddings per year in Jackson Hole, most of my year […]
