About Us

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

Marian attended Ricks college in Rexburg, Idaho for one year where she was on the Folk Dance team.  She then returned to Utah where she joined the University of Utah Ballroom dance team.  She participated in many performances and received the International Bronze Medal in Ballroom dancing.   Marian trained under a famous photo artist and became an accomplished retoucher and artist for our Studio.  She was also a receptionist and a salesperson.   She is  an accomplished swimmer and during the Summer she taught classes from beginning to the Red Cross life saving.
Our life together actually started on the dance floor as this is where we first met and had many memorable dates.  We have four children and 14 grandchildren and we are currently serving a Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Augusta, Georgia.

    My wife and I spent five years as winter neighbors of the Hansen’s in Puerto Villarta and grew to know them as the kindest, most gracious and loving couple. They knew what it was to live their religion. “He that giveth to the poor shall not lack.”As Matthew directed;, “Lay up for your selves treasures in heaven.”
