Disclaimer: Like most photographers, I have very few pictures of myself. My husband @calebrcovington manages to get a few when I’m distracted (like when I’m trying to climb the tallest boulder I’ve ever seen somewhere in Northern California without falling into the Pacific Ocean and dying,) but beyond that, nada. He took the headshots you can find on my website, and that was the hardest batch of pictures I’ve ever edited. But it taught me something important—we are always going to be our own worst critics. . My job as a photographer is twofold: to identify and capture beautiful, important images, and, when I’m working with people as my subjects—to help them see how I see them. This picture of me, for example, was taken by a very proud husband watching his very acrophobic wife climb on a rock some 500 feet in the air with steep drop-offs on every side. What you don’t see in this picture are the tears rolling down my face, the gritted teeth, the years-long battle with my fear of heights that saw me to this moment, the sheer stubbornness driving me to the top. I was TERRIFIED during this climb, but you don’t see that. You might see what my Caleb saw—a photographer trying to get to the best vantage point for a good sunset shot. . You can swipe and see one of the pictures I took that day. (Spoiler alert: I shared it earlier this week.) How different it is now that you know the story behind it, what it took to capture this moment. This is what I hope to achieve—not just pictures, but context as well.
I took these at the Wedding Rock viewpoint in Patrick's Point State Park. I'm sure this place is crawling with people in the summertime, the park ranger said the campgrounds are almost always full when school is out. But since it's the off season I can hike up to a place like this and have it practically all to myself. . . . #patrickspointstatepark #patrickspoint #weddingrock #trinidadcalifornia #californiacoast #californiaroadtrip #explorecalifornia #discovercalifornia #californiatrip #visitcalifornia #pacificcoastroadtrip #roadtrip #usaroadtrip #roadtripusa #usroadtrip #roadtripamerica #pch #pacificcoasthighway #hwy101 #coastroadtrip #discovertheroad #wanderlust #sheisnotlost #solotravel  #homeiswhereyouparkit

A while back Andrew and Taylor traveled to the Pacific Northwest on one of their many adventure trips. When in Patrick’s Point State Park they decided it would be the perfect place for them to get married. And so they did just that. I love that they avoided the norm. They strayed away from the ballroom or barn and when straight for what felt AUTHENTIC to them. High upon Wedding Rock with the sea’s breeze brushing their cheeks. It’s where they knew their story as husband and wife should begin. . . . #weddingrock #patrickspointstatepark #hikingtrails #findyourpark #californiahiking #dontfencemein #adventurewedding #togetherweroam #californiawedding #destinationwedding #adventurebrides #indiebride #barefootbride #huffpostido #indiebride #patrickspoint #nationalparkgeek #seekmorewilderness #documentaryweddings #fearlessphotographer #lostwhaleweddings #travelingweddingphotographer #california #tylerwirken #wirkenphoto #kcmo #kansascitybride #midwestbride
