Taking time to learn... and teach

After being asked to speak at ClickCon in Chicago a few weeks ago along side Fujifilm I started to realize a lot about the state of our industry as photographers. Call this an open letter to the photo-community, with some images shot at the conference with the new 100 megapixel GFX medium format digital camera.

Finding ourselves lost in Canada. Alix + Steven's elopement

Feeling a little more depth than normal reliving the story behind this elopement in Banff, Canada with Alix + Steve. These are more than just wedding photos, they’re stories of redemption and love and courage all wrapped up with memories that sustain them. We hiked, and explored the Canadian Rockies stopping for so much more than just the photography but instead to soak up the beauty in this amazing place.

Dancing on Dickson. Kelly + Alex's wedding day.

"I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary." - Margaret Atwood // I shot this wedding with complete freedom to be creative and it was matched by a couple who was totally present and happy on their wedding day. The Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville is an absolutely beautiful venue with incredible staff and such a beautiful location for their couples and these two trusted their vendors to do their jobs so that they could just enjoy getting married.

Crystal Bridges Wedding Bentonville, Arkansas

Two of the most genuinely beautiful people I know said I do at the Crystal Bridges Museum. Right down the road from home in Bentonville, Arkansas I got to see one of the most authentic and love filled wedding days I’ve ever photographed. Ryan + Austin somehow seem to make every moment real and pretty and somehow special.

Mt. Magazine Arkansas Wedding Day

At the highest point above the Ozark mountains Julianne + Anthony got married at Mt. Magazine. We love all Arkansas weddings, but this spot is special and though these two came all the way from Nashville for the big day, this spot was special.

Facing adversity, smelling the roses.

It’s been 2 years since I shot this wedding on crutches, a major surgery, all kinds of metal put in my knee, and learning to walk again and I think the only way I survived it with the kind of success I did was because of the people who rallied around me. Check out my story…

Lake house elopement. Chapter 1

All adventures start with somebody willing to go on one. Ours starts next week when the plane touches down in Canada but for Alix and Steve their elopement adventure started today. This wedding was simple, stress free, beautiful. Go see what I mean.

Elizabeth + Brandon | Married in Arkansas

About 30 minutes past civilization is a little corner of the world called Hazel Valley. This little nook was the place where a few of the most influential people I know came to watch Brandon + Elizabeth say “I do”. With a reception perfectly designed by Amanda Reed Weddings, a ceremony in the rain, and an incredible story I can sincerely say that this wedding last weekend in Northwest Arkansas was easily one of the most important I have ever shot.

Military Wedding at Cooper Chapel

An incredible Military Wedding Day at Cooper Chapel with a reception at Kindred North in Bentonville, Arkansas. Jordan + Jay made this day absolutely amazing and I have to admit I’m a sucker for a uniform wedding but this one was truly special with an entire groomsmen party in uniform and a beautiful reception filled with friends and family.

Fayetteville Arkansas Wedding at Carnall Hall

A perfectly Southern Fayetteville Arkansas Wedding at Carnall Hall. The University of Arkansas in the background, and the perfect group of friends around them Ashley + Kyle made this entire day so much fun. From amazing light to Brock Entertainment making sure every single guest danced this day was a dream to shoot.

Black Wedding Dress in Northwest Arkansas | Brittnee + Merrick

One of the things I love most about shooting weddings in Northwest Arkansas is the variety in the weddings we get to shoot. This wedding at the Apollo Theater in Springdale had the bride as the ultimate centerpiece. A black wedding dress, plenty of tattoos, and a groom in a Maroon tuxedo gave us plenty of opportunities to make this alternative styled wedding full of incredible images.

Arkansas Wedding Photos | Ballroom at I street | Miranda & Tyler

This wedding just down the street from the office at the Ballroom at I street was truly special. Not because of the photos (though I think you’ll like them) and not because of the whiskey (though Macallan did send us a few pretty incredible bottles to share with these two) but because of the memories. Two amazing people celebrating their best day yet and I got to hold the camera.

Arkansas Photographer - Miles Witt Boyer - Super awkward and ok with it.

We need more authenticity don’t we? More people willing to admit that we’re a little weird and that’s ok. If you think I’ve got it all pulled together with the perfect family, perfect career, perfect vision for my life, or perfect whatever - you’ve totally lost your mind. There’s a lot of value in being real, and I’m trying to push harder to show who I am these days. This is Me.

Arkansas Engagement Photos in the Ozarks. Elizabeth + Brandon

High above the Ozark mountains 400 feet beyond the ground we stood until sunset with two of the most beautiful people I know. We watched them love, and smile, and enjoy every moment and simply got to be there to capture it. Meet Brandon + Elizabeth, two very special people to me in one of the most important stages of their lives together.
