Through my lens. Part 1 by Jason Scallin-11:eleven Photography

Life is a journey, dont forget to capture the moments along the way.”

One of my favorite things about photography is that I can share the beauty I capture with others. One of my favorite things about the Gold Country, is that there is so much to capture. Through my lens, will be an ongoing journey. I will share with you the beauty, my travels, my experiences.

I’ve been a traveler. A wanderer. And yes, there is beauty to be found in all corners of the world. Some places have beautiful forests, some have gorgeous rivers, or mountains. Some places the beauty is in the people that reside there, or the history that lies within it. In all my travels I have not found another place that has all these things in one place. The Gold Country, set in Northern California has all these things, and more, practically within arms reach of one another. I am currently in the “heart” of the Gold Country, Nevada County. And although I have tried to move away several times, it has a magical draw to it, and I just can’t stay away very long.  I don’t know if it’s the Tahoe National Forest that you can see all around it, the mighty Yuba River that runs through it, the snow capped Sierra Nevada’s that rise above it, or the wonderful, creative people that fill it. Come check it out. See for yourself. Enjoy the journey.

Meet Lenka & Giovanni – Lenkaland Photography – Nevada City, Ca


Hello! We are Lenka and Giovanni. We are a husband and wife team that loves documenting the little moments that make each and every day special. We photograph weddings, families, and landscapes in Nevada County. We have two children, a fluffy dog, and a black cat.

We find inspiration in nature, especially the forests around our home. Our children often join our adventures. We explore along the Yuba River and trails where we find treasures that could be a scenic vista, or a little rock the fits perfectly in the palm of our hands.
