If you told me five years ago that my future was to be a Tahoe Wedding Photographer I would have called you crazy.
If you told me that I would spend a good portion of my work life perusing wedding blogs, and editing photos of cakes, and craving the next opportunity to create amazing images for my clients, I would have laughed you off and toasted to the future.
But here I am. In less than three months I will have left my full time job to pursue my future as a Tahoe Wedding Photographer and, eventually, a Destination Wedding Photographer. I now dream of things like photographing New Orleans Weddings and Wine Country Weddings, allowing me to blend my wanderlust with my job. If you are close to me or a family member, you know that I moved to Tahoe to work for a Running and Cycling Apparel Manufacturer. I will no longer remain in my current position as a retail store manager for them after the end of April. With 18 weddings already under contract for this year, the demand for my services has outgrown my ability to do both jobs well and a job well done is something that I pride myself on.
Thus, it is time for me to move onto something new: something that gives me infinite creative control and challenges. I will be a full time photographer starting this summer and while my winters will focus on Tahoe Adventure Photography, my summers will focus on Tahoe Wedding Photography.
It’s not so surprising really. I love weddings. I spent 10 years throughout college and after staffing weddings of every kind. I know them intimately: the tips and tricks of the day, the schedule and flow. I love dance floors and parties. I love meeting people. I love observing and waiting and watching. I love bands and DJs (but not disco).
So here I am, waiting patiently for all the awesome, hilarious, intimate moments that I will capture this summer. In the meantime, I appeased myself with a whirlwind of photography in Austin for SXSW, where I’ve been for the last two weeks.
I love every second of photographing weddings. It’s an honor and a thrill. This summer I have the good fortune of photographing weddings in San Antonio, TX, on the beach in Lake Tahoe, CA, at Vineyards in the Sierra Nevada Foothills and in the Botanical Gardens in Berkeley, CA, just to name a few. I love winter and skiing but I’m absolutely ecstatic about what my summer has in store for me and the brides and grooms who have contracted me as their Tahoe Wedding Photographer.
Tahoe Wedding Season: I’m waiting for you and I know my brides are too!
