Zephyr Cove Resort Wedding

Zephyr Cove Resort Wedding | Lake Tahoe, NV | Ana + Andrew

Ana and Andrew had me at pizza. When we first spoke in 2015 about their wedding, over a year out, Ana was most excited about the pizza.  As a photojournalist, there are few details that I worry about on a wedding day.  I am, frankly, unconcerned with the pomp and circumstance and whether or not […]

Sand Harbor Family

Sand Harbor Family Portrait | Breaux Family

Sand Harbor State Park is an amazing location for your family photos at Lake Tahoe.  The depth and and interest that the boulders of the park lend to photos really creates awesome images. There are so many options at the park for great locations that offer a ton of variety: the cove, the beach and […]

Dangberg Home Ranch

Dangberg Home Ranch Engagement | Toni + Justin

Toni and Justin’s really wanted a rustic ranch feel for their engagement session, in which they were hoping to utilize her grandfather’s vintage 1940s Chevy truck.  He lives in Gardnerville and when they asked for location recommendations, I was quick to recommend the Dangberg Home Ranch, a venue that I absolutely love.   I photographed Emma […]

Chateau at Incline Village

Chateau Wedding | Incline Village, NV | Caitlin and Brad

Can all weddings have flower girls that clean up their flowers during the ceremony please?  For real.  Have you ever seen anything more adorable? Caitlin and Brad met while attending the University of Arizona and now are loving living in Reno.  Mountains, athletics and four seasons are important to them and their friends definately did […]

Tahoe Engagement Session

Tahoe Engagement Session | Lake Tahoe, CA | Lisa + Jeff

Lisa and Jeff wanted a double whammy of locations for their Tahoe engagement session: forest and mountains were important to them so we hit up Kahle Community Center for the aspens and the forest and then the Trout Creek meadow behind Al Tahoe for some epic mountain views of Tallac and a killer sunset.  These […]

Tahoe Fall Family Portraits

Tahoe Fall Family Portraits | Scholl Family

“We just had our 5th photo session with Lauren and she is worth her weight in gold. We’ve hired her to take our maternity photos, newborn, 6mo/holiday, 1st birthday, and now our holiday photos again. They’ve all turned out amazing! At our latest session, our (now) 18 month old was tired, hungry, and extremely cranky. […]

Tannenbaum Wedding

Tannenbaum Wedding | Reno, NV | Madalyn + Eric

Maddy and Eric are both classically trained musicians and when they told me they wanted to have a first duet instead of a first dance I swooned and fell out of my chair.Thanks to a friend, they had a beautiful Steinway piano on loan for the evening.  Eric composed a medley of songs that were significant […]

Tahoe Winter Proposal

Tahoe Winter Proposal | Stateline, NV | Erik + Alex

Making your marriage proposal meaningful by taking her back somewhere special to the two of you is an awesome way to go, especially when it’s a place that will always be there.  Like Lake Tahoe – whose massive features and pristine waters aren’t apt to disappear anytime soon.  It’s unlikely that anyone will even be […]

Valhalla Wedding

Valhalla Winter Wedding | South Lake Tahoe, CA | Mary + Scotty

Mary and Scotty are pretty much the raddest kids around with the best hair.  Until Scotty shaved his hair off on his wedding night.  True story. Mary ascertained that he needed “marraige hair” instead of “bachelor hair.”  What I think probably started as an inside joke grew to actuality as the dance party went on […]

Tahoe Family Photos

Tahoe Family Photographer | Morrow Family

It looks a little bit different in Tahoe today than it did a month and a half ago when the Morrow Family hired me to be their Tahoe Family Photographer!  If you can believe it, this is the very same spot that Melissa and Eric and I ventured into during one of our most epic snowstorms […]
