Christina & James @ Alta-California

Not even sure where to begin when writing this blog. I guess first off: Congratulations to Christina and James for their engagement!!! This couple reached out to me about doing engagement photos and wanted a “Dog-savvy photographer”. As most of you know that follow me I love dogs! So of course I was already excited about reading the rest of the email. After a few emails back and forth they sent a photo of them and their pups. After that I just couldn’t wait until their engagement session was here. These two wonderful souls adopted their two doggies and gave them a wonderful life. I could not have been more blessed to have met these two caring people and their beautiful pups that they have given an amazing life to. :) :) :) Please enjoy the photos and also if you are thinking about getting a dog… think about rescuing/adopting. Congrats to Christina and James!

Jen & Jimmy Family-Maternity @ Lake-Tahoe-Incline

Where is the best place to do Maternity-Family photos on labor day weekend with the thousands and thousands of people crowding the beaches of Lake Tahoe? Your backyard! I got to photograph this beautiful family and we had an absolute blast in the comfort of their backyard in Incline, NV. Congratulations to them!!!

Alison & Patrick Proposal (Engagement Photos) -- Garwoods - Lake Tahoe

All the way from Ohio, Patrick secretly brought along both of their families to watch him propose at beautiful Lake Tahoe. It could not have been more perfect. Me as a touristy photographer taken photos of the birds in the sky, the family hiding in a little closet by the bathrooms and coming out just at the perfect time while he got on one knee to propose. Alison’s face says it all. Congratulations!!!

Hayley & Justin @ Homewood - Lake Tahoe

What a wicked cool wedding this was! It all happened at Homewood, Lake Tahoe in the backyard of a private home where Hayley and Justin said “YES!”. All started with an epic first look on a long dock, then a picture perfect ceremony over looking the lake with gorgeous flowers from KO Floral Designs, the ring bearer, an awesome cat name Khaleesi, bringing the rings down the aisle, amazing food by Liberty Food and Wine, a crazy good toast by Dad, a beautiful calm night for “Golden Hour” photos, and then DANCING!

Darcy and Greg @ North Lake Tahoe - Tahoe City

Darcy and I go way back, literally her whole life, and I was honored to have the opportunity to shoot her wedding. Darcy and Greg got married up at North Lake Tahoe. It was one of the cutest backyard weddings I have ever photographed! Congratulations, you two. I wish you the best!

Mellisa and Jeremy @ Daylight Mind Coffee Company -- Big Island, Hawaii

Recently, I traveled to the big island of Hawaii where I got to shoot an amazing wedding for Mellisa and Jeremy. The setting was breathtaking with a rainbow for the ceremony and a stunning sunset after. Congratulations to the awesome couple! Thank you for the opportunity to be part of it!

Heather & Brad @ Zephyr Cove, South Lake Tahoe

Heather and Brad’s wedding was perfect from start to finish. Perfect weather, amazing friends and family, darling flower girls and ring bearers, beautiful sunset, epic dancing, and winded up with a crystal clear night sky; leading to a wicked cool star photography portrait of the bride and groom!

Thanks for Lindsey for shooting with me!
Thanks to the wicked cool DJ Derek for making it a party! Lake DJ

Jenna and Nate Proposal (Engagement Photos) -- Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe

Just a little road trip to Lake Tahoe, which started from Michigan, Nate surprised his girlfriend Jenna (Now Fiance) with a beautiful proposal overlooking Emerald Bay! These two are amazing people and I don’t think the surprise proposal could have gone any better. After Nate popped the question we took some time to create some wicked cool engagement photos.

Congratulations you two!

The Larsons Fall Family Photos -- Lake Tahoe and Truckee Area.

Had such a wonderful time photographing this family up in the Lake Tahoe and Truckee area. The colors were in full swing and the weather was perfect. It is so much fun capturing the kids personalities.

Jen and Patrick @ Top of Heavenly Ceremony and Charthouse Reception

Janessa and James @ Tahoe City: West Lake Tahoe

Janessa and James were married at a quaint Tahoe cabin nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Surrounded by their family, the two exchange vows in between their family reunion. It was a last minute inquiry (just a week before the big day), and I was so lucky to have been available to celebrate the day with them. Congratulations to you and your family!
