MT Hood Bigfoot Wedding

Anyone that knows me, knows how stoked I was to be able to photograph this Mt Hood Bigfoot Wedding shoot. It took some planning but luckily the weather cooperated and we prevailed. Originally we planned to shoot on the Old Salmon River Trail which is one of my all time favorite places to hike/shoot around because it’s a real life version of Ferngully. The road in was pretty snowed out though so we ended up down the road which worked out just as well.

Maybe my favorite part of this shoot is that Cliff Barackman, Sasquatch researcher of Finding Bigfoot fame agreed to officiate it. Dreams do come true. He ended up being a super nice guy and we were really lucky to have him join the team to make this happen. If you haven’t heard of Finding Bigfoot or Cliff, please check those links and see some of his work. Weddings aren’t Cliff’s normal wheelhouse so the fact he agreed still get’s me stoked.

I have a deep fondness of the outdoors and love hiking to some killer spots, especially if I can convince a bride and groom to come along. Linh and Andrew eloped officially at the courthouse and decided to do a wedding shoot in Banff. As you’ll see by the photos, it was a pretty solid idea. I only shoot a few destination weddings a year any more because it’s just hard to stay on top of everything when you’re traveling. I’m heading off to Mexico for my last destination wedding of the year next week. It’s usually exhausting and scrambles my brain for a few days when I return, but when I’m able to capture moments in places like this it makes it all worth it.


Lately I’ve seen Bigfoot becoming more and more popular in pop culture and even among other photographers doing bigfoot related shoots(I’ll take all the credit thank you)…joking of course. Missing Link the movie is coming out and there’s even a coffee shop in LA called Coffee for Sasquatch among many others. But I am super stoked to see all of the squatch related media and products coming out. Now we just have to find him and we’ll be set. If anyone is planning on doing a Sasquatch inspired Mt Hood Bigfoot Wedding, I only hope you’ll give me a shout.

I couldn’t have done this shoot without all the super rad vendors that were involved. Please take a minute to check them out:
