I live part of the year in Europe and part of the year in Colorado (near Denver). I've shot destination weddings all over the US and the Caribbean, and I'm expanding my wedding studio into Europe right now. In 2008, Sigma Photo, one of the world's largest camera companies, named me one of its Our World Photographers.

You can see more of my work at wedding photography site and my adventure sports photography site.

If I'm not photographing weddings or adventure sports, I'm writing magazine stories about travel, health, science or the environment. I'm an avid climber, cyclist, runner, traveler and espresso nerd. 
Bragging rights
Once I won a palm tree climbing contest in Thailand. Another time, I fell off a boat and was stranded in the open ocean for a half hour.

VISTA at Arrowhead - Weddings

A weddbing at VISTA at Arrowhead in Edwards, Colorado. Photography by Dreamtime Images.

Steven is a magician, plain and simple. I'm in my late 30s and very serious about rock climbing, and Steven is very much responsible for my continued growth and improvement as an athlete after nearly 20 years practicing my sport. I can't thank him enough. The trick to climbing hard, especially as you age, is to not get injured. Steven helps me stay injury free, which in turn allows me to climb harder. I've suffered from chronic elbow tendonitis for many years as well as sharp, shooting pain on the outside of my forearms that occurs when I slip off small holds. I've tried all sorts of exercises, NSAIDs bands, various types of massage, weird massage machines -- nothing really has helped. It turns out I've had extreme muscle tightness deep in my forearms that require skilled needling, and literally after my first visit to Steven, my pains vanished. I find that they come back every few months as I go through various phases of my training cycles, and he manages to eradicate them completely. Steven, thanks for keeping me in action!

AWESOME! I called Dave this morning when I blew up my microwave and he was over at my house a few hours later. Having a local appliance repair service in town is great, and it's something we really needed. I used to have to call appliance centers in Loveland or Fort Collins and often had to wait a week to get my stuff fixed. Dave gained a customer for life today.

I actually had the opportunity to shoot Brett's sister's wedding -- Brett was IN the wedding, so he couldn't be the photographer. I have shot weddings for 5 years, and I learned a ton from Brett just from having him around. He helped me pose people better and I think he's a master at the craft -- he has a great sense of how to make people look their best. One of these days I'm going to fly out to Houston with my wife and have Brett shoot some headshots of her for a possible modeling portfolio. I can't think of anyone better!

My wife and I eloped, so we didn't really have a wedding per se, but we chose Bernd to shoot our post-wedding portrait session. He did a fantastic job, and created some timeless works of art we will forever cherish. I think Bernd is the best Santa Barbara wedding photographer, and I say that because I know his style and ability probably better than anyone. I have shot with him numerous times (I am a photographer myself) and have had the opportunity to look through entire weddings that he has documented. He is simply incredible. In image after image after image I find his shots are dynamic, beautiful, and I see an overwhelming sense of connection between the people in his shots. He's got a great eye and a wonderful personality and I would recommend him without reservation as a top photographer for your Santa Barbara wedding.

I've shot a number of weddings Jamie has coordinated. She does a fantastic job - she's super well organized, is totally creative, and has a keen eye for details. Brides love her, too. She's super mellow and manages to keep weddings stress free. Jamie is one of the top wedding coordinators around!

I work with Jen on a regular basis and think she's one of the best wedding planners I've ever worked with. She's always on point and never gets stressed out, no matter what happens. She has an awesome sense of aesthetics, which makes my job way easier when I'm taking photos. She's friendly, warm, generous, and genuine. A+++.
