Riva Grill Tahoe Wedding | Published at Borrowed and Blue | Julie + Michael

I am not going to lie, the list of weddings I have to blog about is somewhat extensive.  In the last few weeks, I’ve been inundated with work and focused mostly on moving files from my hands to the clients hands and less on sharing.  For that, I’m sorry.  As a result, I’ve had quite a few older weddings published recently and as of yesterday, a new one I have yet to even share on the blog!

Julie and Michael are the best of the best.   They are kindred spirits and souls filled to the brim with love and fun.  They are travelers and athletes, drinkers and dancers.  They are keepers and I plan on keeping them.

I feel pretty damn lucky Julie discovered me and demanded that I be her Lake Tahoe wedding photographer (at the risk of sounding cliche, literally demanded).  You see, Michael had found another photographer in his quest to plan the wedding quickly and efficiently but Julie didn’t get the vibe she was looking for from said photographer.  So Julie found me.  And I am so happy to call them friends.

So, while you wait for my personal post on their gorgeous wedding, this fantastic post from Borrowed & Blue Lake Tahoe will have to do.  They said some awfully nice things about me, which was kind of them.  It’s the fourth time I’ve been featured on a Borrowed & Blue blog, twice in Lake Tahoe for a Lake Tahoe engagement and a Landing Resort Wedding, and once on Borrowed & Blue San Francisco for Julie and Michael’s engagement.

Tahoe Landing Resort Wedding | Stephanie + Dan Published

It’s quite a week for these two awesome people: first Stephanie and Dan were published over at The Knot and now on one of my favorite wedding blogs, the Lake Tahoe Inspiration page for Borrowed and Blue.   This wedding is so awesome, from the gorgeous styling by Tamara J Events to the perfect location – The Landing Resort and Spa is one of my favorite venues in Tahoe to shoot at!

Check out Stephanie and Dan’s feature on Borrowed and Blue Lake Tahoe via this link.

Borrowed and Blue previously featured me for Lake Tahoe with Paige and Daniel’s gorgeous Incline beach engagement session and on their San Francisco page for Julie and Michael’s Monday Funday city engagement session.

Tahoe Landing Resort Wedding | Dan + Stephanie Published

Dan and Stephanie’s Landing Resort and Spa destination Lake Tahoe wedding was published today at The Knot.  You can check out the entire post via this link.  I loved every bit of this wedding, except the raging hangover I had the next day.  Though, Dan and Stephanie, you guys are worth it!

In just a few short days, Stephanie is running the Marine Corps Marathon and I’m thrilled for her.  While you revisit her amazing wedding over at the Knot, send some good running mojo her way!

Sunrise wedding

Markleeville Wedding Photographer | Sunrise Wedding | Amanda + Jason Sneak Peek

When Amanda first contacted me about her 7 AM wedding, I thought for sure that it was a typo.

It was not.

Amanda wanted to get married at sunrise at her “secret spot:” Indian Creek Reservoir Campground in Markleeville, CA.   It was one of the most unique weddings I will probably ever shoot, not only because it was at sunrise but also because it was at a campground.  It was memorable and stunningly beautiful. I can’t wait to share the other photos with you, but in the meantime, here’s an image to tide you all over.

Congrats Amanda and Jason!

Tahoe Eagle's Nest Wedding

Turquoise Wedding Dress | Published in Pretty Pear Bride

I’m still SO enamored with Melissa’s gorgeous turquoise wedding dress from New Orleans retro boutique Trashy Diva.  The Pretty Pear Bride was just as enamored with it and featured their small intimate Eagle’s Nest Wedding on the blog last Thursday.

Tahoe Budget Wedding

Tahoe Guerrilla Wedding | Michelle + Nathan

Once upon a time, there was a boy and a girl who loved each other.

They wanted nothing more than to get married.

But like a lot of folks today, funds were tight.

So the girl bought a wedding dress.

And the boy bought a suit.

And they invited some friends and family to meet them in one of the most beautiful places in the world: a meadow in Lake Tahoe, under the mountains and blue sky and changing fall leaves.

There were no vendors.  A friend officiated.  There was nothing fancy.  There were dogs in attendance.

It was simply, a boy, a girl, and the people that loved them, and me.

And it was awesome.

Tahoe Same Sex Wedding | Gatekeeper’s Park | Published at Equal & Forever

I’m honored and thrilled to have Jeff and Tim’s story and photos published on Equal & Forever last Friday.  I also found out recently that one of my photos from another gorgeous Tahoe couple is going to be used in a national commercial for Freedom to Marry.  Nearly 44% of the US population lives in a state with the freedom to marry for same sex couples.  That’s a big number, but in my world, it’s not enough.  100% of our population should share the same freedoms that I do.  You can help take action by voicing your support and signing the Freedom to Marry Pledge.
