Kristen & Bob Tie the Knot!

Our great buddy Bob is married! In case you don’t know Bob, he and I go way back.  I’ve known him since the fourth grade, and we’ve been all over the place trying to climb, bike, and ski ourselves to death for years.  Well, now Bob is starting off on the biggest new adventure of his life, MARRIAGE.  Go BOB!  Here’s to the future, and thank you so much for letting us be there to experience it.

You may have seen Bob & Kristen’s engagements and climbing pictures in City of Rocks National Reserve.  He can also be spotted in the Adventure Gallery.

Climbing with Bob & Kristen | City of Rocks, Idaho

Here are a few sweet captures from our day with Bob & Kristen.  We climbed Theatre of Shadows – a sweet and easy 5.6/7 four pitch slab fest on Jackson’s Thumb next to Steinfell’s dome in City of Rocks National Reserve near Almo, Idaho.  City of Rocks is a climbing mecca, with thousands of bolted and traditional routes on hundreds of one- to three hundred foot boulders scattered across a sweeping valley.  There are routes here for everyone from beginner to advanced.  The climbing is incredibly varied, with short, sporty, bolted crimp-fests, and long & easy multipitch cruisers.  Awesome place.  Anyways, here’s a taste of the City.

Bob & Kristen | Engagements in City of Rocks, Idaho

A couple of weekends ago we were privileged to work with our good buddy Bob and his sweet lady-friend Kristen to shoot their engagements.  This shoot was a little different than usual.  You see Bob and I go way back.  I’ve actually known Bob since we were in the fourth grade together, and we’ve been buds ever since.  You might have spotted him in the Adventure Gallery, specifically images three and eight on the first page, and the fourth and third to the last on the last page.  (As of 07.26.10)  Bob and I have been climbing, biking, and skiing together for nigh on ten years, so it was only fitting that we did the shoot in beautiful City of Rocks National Reserve.  CoR has been our (as far as climbing is concerned) mecca, and making the trip there feels like going home.  There are a lot of pictures from the weekend, but first we’ll post the ‘official’ engagement portraits.  Check out this post to see some climbing pictures from the day.  Congratulations, Bob & Kristen!  You guys make an awesome couple!

Oh, and another quick note.  You may be wondering what the deal is with the painting.  The night Bob proposed, they went and made this painting together.  Bob made Kristen close her eyes for a minute and wrote ‘Will you marry me?” on there.  So cute!
