About SUNDOG

Sundog [suhn-dawg, -dog]
meteorological name parhelion

  1. : any of several bright spots often tinged with color that often appear parallel to the horizon at the altitude of the sun
  2. : a mock sun

You’ve probably seen them- two small rainbow arcs on either side of the sun. These are called Sundogs. They almost always show in pairs and are recognizable because they are bright and colorful.

The SUNDOG PRO photographers- a husband and wife team- also almost always show in pairs.  We’re adventurous people and passionate about what we do:
Creatively producing imagery that captures an experience or tells a story.

Behind the Lens

We are a couple of photographers, madly in love with each other and the art of imagery.

Ryan Voight comes from a formal education in video production, and brings with him a unique blend of the technical aspects of photography, combined with a Peter-Pan-like passion for playing with light and capturing visually engaging images.  Ryan is the fire behind SUNDOG’s “adventure photography”.

Desiree Voight is super in-tune to everyone around her, with an uncanny ability to perceive human emotions and be perfectly poised to capture when and how those emotions are expressed. Desiree’s skills in connecting with people are a big part of what sets SUNDOG Productions apart from all others.  She is, of course, an incredible photographer as well- with an excellent eye for even the most minute details, in addition to spotting and freezing those moments- the ones of most importance to you.  Desiree is the reason SUNDOG’s Wedding Photography is as uniquely spectacular as it is.

Together, when we’re not out shooting or working on digitally developing client images, we’re spending quality family time with our two daughters- Scarlett and Piper- and our black lab-mix pupper, Jackson.  We are outdoor adventure enthusiasts, so we might be on a mountain hiking or we might be above it in our hang gliders…

Mission Statement

We are committed to sharing our passion for producing creative, beautiful, and artistic images in support of YOUR adventure.

We support our fun and adventurous clients by wonderfully photographing them “in their element”- wherever their passion flows.  We come alive when we’re on-site shooting, and again when processing the raw photos into stunning images in post.  Our understanding of that feeling, being so ON and present- and the way we embrace it- is what sets us apart.  It’s what makes us THE adventure photographers; The perfect fit for fellow adventurists.  If you are reading this and connecting with what we’re saying- we are here for YOU.  We are your tribe, we see you, and we get you.  Let us show you in the way we capture the experience that is your passion.

We’d love to hear from you- what’s your adventure?  Where do you do it?  And when are we shooting it?!

Our enthusiasm for photography isn’t limited to creating images- we’re also dedicated to providing support and inspiration to ALL adventure photographers.  When we’re not in the field capturing epic moments for incredible people, we commit ourselves to sharing techniques and providing education.  We are always keen to connect with other adventure enthusiasts, no matter which side of the lens they choose to live.

The Camera Carry Quest

Any photo-enthusiast already knows, finding “the bag” is a daunting challenge.  Maybe selecting a style isn’t too tough… a backpack, or maybe an airline carry-on friendly roller?  Or maybe the protection and durability of a Pelican (or similar) hard case?  After that, options explode and it’s easy to get overwhelmed…   If you’re like me, …
