Sky Emerson’s passion for the outdoors and sense of adventure has led to a versatile career as a photographer and videographer. When not being charged by bears or hiking through the backcountry he can be found photographing families, sporting events and doing work for commercial clients. Born and raised in Mendocino County (CA) and now residing in Truckee California, Sky developed a love for photography while shooting action sports movies for his original company Summit Side Productions. The company released 4 movies: Higher Heights, Force of Nature, Soul Rebels, and Perspective. During the filming of the moves Sky shot many incredible photographs to go along with the video footage and his love for photography has continued to grow. Spending much of his time in Northern California, Sky continues to chase the ultimate light, dynamic compositions and the perfect photo that warms a home. Sky’s mission is to capture and preserve nature’s magnificence, special life moments and the sense of joy that comes from this amazing planet.

Leah Alfano has been fascinated by photography for most of her life. Growing up in Northern California, living in sunny Santa Barbara, and finally making her home in the Sierra’s, inspired her to pick up a camera and capture the majestic beauty in the world around her. While earning a degree in Business Leah found her niche and realized that real success could come from combining her professional skills with her love of photography.

Sky and Leah collaborated to form Summit Side Photo & Video in 2010 and were married in 2015. They are driven by a passion to travel and capture the awe-inspiring beauty of their surroundings. The two have grown into a photography team with a fun and relaxed approach, specializing in fine art, portrait and sports photography. The goal of Summit Side Photo & Video is to provide clients with stunning artistic photos and preserve their precious memories in the best light possible.
