We retired and moved to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in 2001 after operating a photography studio in Sandy, Utah for 30 years. Although we supposedly retired, it was only a short time before we were once again photographing weddings, individuals and families in beautiful Puerto Vallarta. www.apvallarta.com
