Here is Mad Dog Cycles, of Orem, Utah!  I had a fantastic morning the other day with this great group of people in a spectacular shop.  I got to the store early before the doors opened so I could have free access to everything.  The store has an energetic feel to it, I wanted to jump on a bike and ride out!  As I started photographing the store I began speaking with [...]

Your Favorite Local Business

The business is ran by the family and has a very welcome [...]

Smith Garage wasn’t always Smith Garage.  [...]

A couple weeks ago I went to “The Chocolate”, a beautiful dessert cafe in Orem, Utah.  I went with the intention to capture details and tell a story of how they prepare and present their food.  The cute little house stands out in its immediate surroundings, but the owner did an amazing job at making it feel modern, clean, and refreshing!  It’s a wonderful little place where you go and order some [...]
