Snowglobe Music Festival

Tahoe Concert Photographer: Countdown to Snowglobe Music Fest

Snowglobe Music Festival is fast approaching and although three day passes are sold out, single day tickets and VIP passes are still available.   While Scrillex and Zedd may be big draws for the under 30 crowd, my heart is overjoyed to see Phantogram and Atmosphere rounding out the line-up.

Here’s some insider’s tips to having your best fest:

  • If you’re coming from the Bay Area, you can catch a shuttle from the west coast to Tahoe via RYDE.  With multiple shuttles leaving various Bay Area locations, it’s the best way to get to Tahoe stress free to ring in the New Year.  If you fly into Reno, just hop on the South Tahoe Express for easy access to the Tahoe casino corridor.

  • Dress warm: snowsuits optional.  Keep your core warm with polypropylene base layers under tights and skirts and if you’re feeling really flush, buy those super cheap disposable hand and toe warmers at the grocery store.  You’ll be the only person there with warm toes and you won’t regret it.

  • Drink water. You’re from sea level? Drink three times as much water as you think you need. Those of us who live at altitude love to watch those of you from sea level get drunk on one beer. It happens.
  • Don’t forget to explore.  In the past few years, Snowglobe has added some amazing things to it’s line-up, one of which is talented artists.  Take a few minutes in between acts to explore the artwork on the graffiti wall that Brett Flanigan and Cannon Dill will be creating and expanding upon over the course of the three days.

  • Be prepared early.  You can pick up your snowglobe wristband at the Snowglobe Box Office in Montbleu starting on Saturday, December 27th.   Mobile charging lockers are coming to Snowglobe for the first time this year: reserve your locker for the weekend now!

Crepe Paper Photo Booth Backdrop

Markleeville Photo Booth | Christina + Travis

My friends Christina and Travis recently did something awesome: they eloped in Mexico.  I am so proud and excited for the two of them.  Christina is as effervescent and bubbly of a person as the champagne she prefers to imbibe in.  To top it off, she is extra crafty – a skill the two of us do not share.

When Christina approached me because she wanted to a Markleeville photo booth rental for their engagement/wedding celebration and started to describe her crafty decor plans, I became very excited.  She was planning on hand sewing bunting flags to hang all over the house and I suggested that we find a way to encorporate them into her booth.  Instead of the standard hanging cloth backdrop I usually use, I had her pick out crepe paper colors from Paper Mart.  The online retailer has a ton of options in inexpensive rolls that are 19 inches wide and a little over 8 feet long.  In a row, they are an exceptionally cute photo booth backdrop!

Here are a few of my favorites from Christina and Travis’ wedding celebration.  If you were a guest at the party and would like to view all the photos, you may access the gallery via this link.  Christina or I can provide you with the password.

Tahoe Photo Booth | Barton Festival of Trees and Lights

The Tahoe Festival of Trees and Lights is Tahoe’s premier family friendly holiday celebration.  The festival is the Barton Foundation‘s largest fundraiser of the year and occurs over the course of a week every year in December.  It features lavishly decorated holiday trees, wreaths and decor and having visited the fest for the first time last night, I can say that it is truly a holiday wonderland!  In addition, there are different entertainment acts, craft areas, photos with Santa, a Teddy Bear Hospital and opportunities to give back to the community through silent auctions and raffles.  The proceeds from the festival benefit Barton Hospice programs and services and 3,500 attendees drop in over the course of the week.

One night of the festival is dedicated to Barton Healthcare’s holiday party for the family and friends of staff and volunteers and I was more than happy to donate my Tahoe photo booth to the event.  Here are a few of my favorites from the evening.

If you attended the Company Holiday Party and participated in my photo booth, you can view, download and share your photos from the gallery via this link.

Tahoe Wedding Photographer | Published at Borrowed & Blue

Borrowed and Blue is one of my favorite wedding blogs to contribute to.   They manage to keep things fresh with individual blogs for various locations.  This year, they’ve been extra kind to me, publishing me at their Napa wedding blog, their Bay Area wedding blog, and now, for the fourth time, their Lake Tahoe wedding blog.  They always write really fun, kind, complimentary things which gives you extra warm fuzzies inside and their post on Kelly and Mike yesterday was no exception.  “Let me warn you: Kelly & Mike know how to have a good time and their personalities were all over this festive summer day,” they opened with.  No truer words could be said about Kelly and Mike’s Tahoe beach wedding this summer.

I’m so honored to have been chosen as Kelly and Mike’s Tahoe wedding photographer.  Their day was exceptionally amazing from start to finish.  Not to mention that thing with the firetruck of course.  I had such a blast with the two of them, I still wish we could do it all again.

Tahoe Photo Booth Rental | Tahoe Regional Young Professionals’ Winter White Party

The Tahoe Regional Young Professionals (aka TRYP) hold an annual fundraiser on behalf of a local non-profit called the Winter White Party.   TRYP is a group of “forward thinking individuals who believe in giving back to the community that has provided an inspirational place to work, live, play and prosper.”  By connecting Tahoe’s next generation to help better the community, TRYP organizes and participates in charity fundraisers and networking events while providing career opportunities to help support Tahoe residents and businesses.  The Winter White Party is their premier fundraising event for a local non-profit.  This year’s recipient, Project 44, is an off-shoot of the Sierra and Child Family Services program.   Currently, many of Tahoe’s at-need youth and children are being sent to foster homes outside of the basin due to a shortage of foster homes in our area.  Project 44 seeks to bring awareness to this problem: we need 44 beds in the Lake Tahoe area to house our own foster children in.

I am always more than willing to donate my photo booth to local non-profits for their events.  It’s the best way I know how to contribute to my local community and give back.  The TRYP Winter White party was no exception.  I must say, these folks are photo booth pros – there are over 600 photos in the final gallery!  Here are a few of my favorites, but if you attended the Winter White Party, you may find the entire gallery of photos via this link.

Tahoe Senior Portrait Photographer

Tahoe Senior Photographer | Emerald Bay | Tiffany

Tiffany is one rad kid.  She is a smart, funny high school senior with a bright future ahead of her.  She’s expecting to hear soon on early admission from Johns Hopkins University where she intends to major in neuroscience.   Tiffany wanted an outdoor natural photo session for her Tahoe Senior Portrait and specifically something very different than her friends in Southern California.  Her family drove all the way from Magic Mountain, CA for her portrait session!

After discussing our options, Tiffany and I decided that the Emerald Bay and the Cascade Falls trail would be perfect for her session.

Tahoe Photo Booth | TAMBA End of the Season Party

From 2011-2013 I was a board member and secretary for our local Mountain Biking Club, the Tahoe Area Mountain Biking Association. TAMBA is pretty awesome and it’s full of awesome people who like to ride bikes and make our trails better. You can head over to their website to read more about them or better yet, join!

They recently held their end of the season party and it was a smashing success.  Much like their Spring Season Kick Off Party, the end of the season party offers folks a chance to pre-renew their membership for 2015 and raised money for all the important work TAMBA does through raffles and a BBQ. It was a fantastic time at my favorite place (The American Legion, of course) with a slew of the best of the best people Tahoe has to offer: local DJ David Berkman donated his time spinning tunes, my buddy Dreu Murin donated his time as MC and I was more than thrilled to donate my Tahoe photo booth.

Here’s a few of my favorites from the evening. As always, the link to the full gallery will remain on my website under the 2014 Photo Booth tab. Head on over to the gallery via this link to download your photos, share to social media or order prints.

Although our trails are still in great shape here in Tahoe with nice firm dirt to ride on, the TAMBA party always signifies the end of the season and the beginning of winter.  Pray for snow!

Tahoe Skier Meghan Kelly

Tahoe Commercial Photographer | Published in Powder Magazine

I’m not sure how much I need to emphasize that this is a really big deal for me.

THIS IS A REALLY BIG DEAL.

Thanks to the awesomeness and all around badassness of my fiend Meghan Kelly, I’ve been published in the December Issue of Powder Magazine.

I can’t think of a publication that I’d be more honored to be published in, except maybe National Geographic.  Powder Magazine routinely sets an extremely high bar for the caliber of photography they publish, including the images in their sister spread that focuses on mountain biking, Bike Magazine.

Meghan’s had an amazing couple of years and I’m extremely proud of her.  From summiting a glacier in Africa to raising the funding and executing an all-female human-powdered trip from Iceland to Greenland, to overseeing the Northern CA chapter of the non-profit SheJumps, to participating in the all female ski film Pretty Faces, her roster of awesomesauce is massively incredible and humbling.  She’s a leader and a comedian and I’m pretty lucky to call her my friend.

Thanks to Powder Magazine for publishing my photo and heralding females participating in winter sports.

Now, if only it would snow here in Tahoe so we could all go shred.
