Schulz stops for a total Tourismo shot by the entrance to Badlands National Park.
Then, Schulz proceeds to take command of the most unique, prehistoric-like surroundings!
Easily his favorite part of South Dakota was a successful pheasant hunt with that guy known for his photography in Denver, his dad Garrett Hacking and his hunting buddies. Oh, and Misty the black lab.
Taking a break from a busy year of wedding photography in Denver, Garrett Hacking and the Photography G mascot Schulz, begin a pilgrimage across the Midwest. The trip began in the Black Hills of South Dakota with a visit to great friend and hunting buddy L.T.. Here, a sunrise like only the plains offer up, from L.T.'s back yard. Not bad digs!
Then, on the road for the next leg of the journey. Check back soon!
All about his love of photography in Denver, Garrett Hacking has another aim and focus: his passion for hunting and cooking! The tools for this trade are primitive weapons: muzzle loading rifles (think Daniel Boone) and bows and arrows (think Robin Hood). His love of hunting culminates in cooking what he harvests. "Being a part of the entire process, from the hunt to the kitchen, makes the experience so fulfilling. Preparing the meat I hunted for friends and family is a delight! When I cook I am reminded of the hunt: the sights and smells of the Fall woods, the camaraderie I feel with old friends and the chance to see animals you never do on a casual hike. And I love the 'Ah ha!' moment when they taste these unique flavors." In this case the flavor was so special that Garrett won 1st prize in the contest along with Drew Lewis who won the Green Chile category.
The crock pots are on and the competition begins at KJ's Coffee Bar.

Diggin' in to the Wild Elk Chili!
All the chilis were fabulous!
Folks of all ages pitched in to help.
What better music to accompany a Chili fest than some good 'ole blues!
Full bellies and big smiles for the judges!
Taking a break from wedding photography in Denver, the soon to be crowned chili champ looks a bit crazed.

Margo & Todd came from Texas for a wedding at Ski Tip, one of Keystone Resort's beautiful wedding locales. Ski Tip is a quaint venue nestled alongside the Snake River and at the foot of the mountains. "All of Keystone's locales are among my favorites for weddings" says Colorado Wedding photographer Garrett Hacking. "Ski Tip is nice because it is very intimate. The grassy areas are as nice as you see in more moderate climates like the midwest, probably due to the proximity of the river. Add to that the fact you get all the regular big guns from the resort in terms of coordination, catering, cakes etc. and you have the makings for one extraordinary, memorable day. Which of course I will capture in timeless photographic art for you!" concludes the artist known nationwide for his photography in Denver as well as beautiful mountain spots like Keystone Resort.
