Nathan and Esther

September 27, 2011

Nates Wedding 55 2 Nathan and EstherOf all the people who have helped me in my career, and kept me motivated to push on when things got tough, nobody has had as big an influence on me as my friend since junior high Nate. So it was no surprise that I was honored when he asked me to shoot his wedding. He and Esther have been a couple for years, and finally decided to make the commitment and tie the knot. The wedding was absolutely a blast. It was unique and catered specifically to them. My sons Grandfather presided over the ceremony, and they ended by each shooting an arrow into a target (they are both avid bow-hunters.) But the best part of the ceremony, was having my son Wyatt working along side me as my second shooter. He did an amazingly good job for being his first gig. Maybe I will have to change the name of the business to Thompson and Son Photography???

Here are some of my favorite shots from the day.

Back in Utah

September 2, 2011

I am back here in the Beehive state. After spending a couple of years in Southern California shooting weddings, and honing my skills, I have returned to my home state of Utah. I had a great time In Cali, and will definitely miss the state, but I am back where I belong. While in California I had the opportunity to rub elbows and become good friends with some of the worlds greatest and most famous photographers. I learned a lot from them, and hope to continue my friendships from a distance.

I will continue to do lighting and photogrpahy workshops, but I will now start doing them in Northern Utah. If you are interested in learning to run your camera better, learn the business of photography, or professional lighting, please send me an email, and I will let you know when my first workshop will be.

Thanks for following along with this new change in my life, I am truly excited to see what the future holds!
