The world lost an amazing man last month. The Tahoe wedding family lost a phenomenal photographer last month. There aren't enough positive things to say about Vernon Wiley. He was so fun to be around even when the weddings were intense (actually he was funniest then). He was passionate about his work, whether it was a wedding or a creative mountain shot. But when I asked him last year what he was most grateful for, he told me his son and wife. That is a good man with priorities in the right places. We will miss his smiling face, sense of humor, and gorgeous images. Here are a few of my favorite Vernon images from Heavenly and Kirkwood.
This one helps me smile through the sadness. A legend.
