Kathy and Matt in Berkeley

A few weeks back I got to second shoot for Karen at Brown Mouse Photography again, this time on the campus at UC Berkeley. Kathy and Matt are a super fun couple and had one of the most relaxed and comfortable weddings I’ve ever been to. The day never got out of hand or over-planned, which made everything so easy from a photographer’s perspective… and I’m sure gave Kathy and Matt time to actually enjoy their wedding instead of feeling stressed out about it. Just splendid. Here’s a few favorites…

More from Kris and Brian

I promised way back when that I’d post more from Kris and Brian’s wedding and just never did. Shame on me. So here’s a more detailed sampling of my favorite images from Ojai.

Wyoming

I just got back from a brief backpacking adventure in the Wind Rivers mountain range in Wyoming. It was my first time backpacking in Wyoming, and I can’t wait to do it again. I went with my old college friend Justin, who was kind enough to put a human face on some of the pictures I took. I used my old digital rebel (D300) with a Tamron 18-200 lens. The first day was perfect. We hiked along Big Sandy River to our campsite near Clear Lake, then we hiked a loop up past Deep, Temple, Miller, and Rapid Lakes on our way back to camp. That night we got hit with thunderstorms, and a front moved in that we’d heard was going to dump lots of rain on Sunday and snow on Monday. So we hiked out a day early in the rain. I was a little disappointed to miss climbing over jackass pass to get a peek at the famous Cirque of the Towers, but they were obscured by clouds so we decided to skip the extra hiking. Next time…

Temple Lake. This is where we hung out for a while… Justin caught a few fish, and I went swimming. For about 45 seconds. Ice water is cold. Sure felt refreshing, though!

Hiking past Temple Lake, I have no idea what that big rock is in front of us.
