Weeks later, I am still so obsessed with this wedding.  I love everything about it.  I love the venue.  I love the light.  I love the vintage feel.  I love the gorgeous, fun, quirky, self-depricating couple.  I love love love it.  They love love love it to and Rachel wrote such an amazing review on my facebook page about my service that it made me cry.  Literally.  Not figuratively.  I never cry!  Her review still floors me and I can only hope, work hard and try my best to live up to all the amazing things she said about me at every wedding I photograph.

These two had so many fantastic details – from the gifts to their parents, the gifts to each other, the Star Wars themed boutonnières and bouquets, to the most elaborate: a custom made veil from the material from Rachel’s mother’s wedding dress.  There was a photo booth, a fabulous dinner, and the most amazing ambiance.  In short, it was a fantastic wedding and I loved every minute and I love reliving the minutes even more in the photos.

Rachel and Thomas, thank you so much for sharing your wedding day with me.  From the Great Gatsby-ish feel, to the amazing moments (those letter reading photos oh my!), to the dance party and the wonderful company, I feel so lucky that I was the one who was able to tell the story of your day.

Cristie and Ben are mad at me because I didn’t show up to their party last week.  There may or may not have been excessive wine involved in my lack of attendance.

July was a little nutty for me, schedule wise, so I’m awfully behind on blogging all the amazing weddings and couples I’ve photographed this summer.  Cristie and Ben are one of those amazing couples and I’m super excited to share their Heavenly Tram Wedding photos with you today.  Originally, their small intimate elopement was to take place at the Blue Sky Terrace, off the mid station of the Heavenly Gondola, but when excessive wind closed it for the day, their nuptials were moved to the top of the tram.  It was honestly more befitting for the couple, in my opinion, as Cristie grew up skiing on the Heavenly Race Team and had spent many a day of her life doing laps on Gunbarrel under the gaze of the tram.  In all the chaos, their wedding was also delayed an hour and it was the perfect amount of time to celebrate with her girlfriends with a bottle of my summer favorite, rosè, poured out of the trunk of the car.  Are these my people or what?

I adore these two.

They are the raddest of rad folks: adventurous mountain climbers, trail blazers and dance party loving fools.  Andy has secret skills that I had NO IDEA ABOUT that include, but are not limited to, breakdancing.  Their friends are fun, full of laughter and love, and clearly loyal to each other.  I had looked forward to their wedding all summer after spending an amazing weekend in Los Angeles for their Culver City Engagement Session this past winter and I clearly had done so with good reason: their wedding was a blast.

I seriously can’t wait to get started working on their Squaw Valley Stables wedding.  Also, I’d like more weddings there please, universe.

My cousin Melanie and her fiance Michael met and both graduated from Texas A&M University, where she recently graduated with a Doctorate in Veterinary Sciences (we are all very proud of her).  They now reside in Dallas, TX and I was super excited to drag the two of them all over the city for their downtown Dallas engagement session!  We started out at the super rad Texas Truckyard, partly because I believe that every engagement session should start with adult beverages, but also because the location looks bright, vibrant and full of awesome textures to photograph against!  With an airstream bar and eat-in truck beds, this place was the perfect starting location.  It had plenty of shade to shoot in the Texas afternoon sun and a great selection of Texas craft beer.

After that we headed over to White Rock Lake to photograph at The Filter Building, where they will be holding their rehearsal dinner.  After that, we headed to the Fountain Place building, an iconic downtown Dallas structure awash with dancing water gardens.  This building is significant to Michael because his father works there.  It was the weekend, so the fountains weren’t splashing, but it still provided a memorable and stunningly beautiful location to photograph.  Next stop was Klyde Warren Park, which offers lush green urban park with a skyline backdrop.  Are you tired yet?  We were, so we hit up one of my favorite Dallas Tex-Mex spots, Meso Maya, for dinner and margaritas before finishing up on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge for a nighttime Dallas skyline portrait.

I should buy a lottery ticket because I feel pretty lucky right now: two outdoor ranch weddings, two weeks in a row.  My favorite kinds of weddings are outdoor, informal, relaxed, dance party affairs with little pomp and circumstance, with few of the standard wedding “traditions.”  Desirae and Ben’s California Ranch Wedding was totally on point with all of my favorite things and included the most delicious tri-tip I’ve had in years.

I spent six years as a camp counselor in college at an all girls non-denominational summer camp called Camp Mystic, that sought to enrich the lives of young girls by helping them become better people, giving them the space to allow themselves to grow as young adults and let camp bring out the best in them, and develop spiritually, however that may be.  Every year on one special day, we told the story of the Warm Fuzzies, about two people who lived in a land where everyone was happy because they were always sharing, giving and recieving these little balls of fluff called, of course, “warm fuzzies.”  Since Warm Fuzzies were “always given freely, getting enough of them was never a problem. There were always plenty to go around, and so everyone was happy and felt warm and fuzzy most of the time.”  The story goes on and there’s some melodrama and sadness to overcome, as all good stories have, but in the end, we’d give all the campers a whole bunch of warm fuzzies and they would spend the rest of the term handing them out to people, bringing unbridled joy and happiness to all of the land.

Where am I going with this in a wedding blog post?

I’ll tell you:

Emily is a Warm Fuzzy.

She is the warmest of warm fuzzies.  The minute you meet her, she envelops you with these large, gracious, giving eyes and she brings you in and makes you feel loved and welcome and fabulous.  Dave is hardly any different: grinning, congenial, extremely smart, and with a snarky fun wit that makes Em light up.  You can see it in their wedding photos: it was seriously difficult to get a photo of Em not laughing.

Their Empire Mine Wedding at Empire Mine State Park in Nevada City, outside of Grass Valley, CA was stunningly beautiful.  It looks like fairy land: everything was green, awash in golden sunlight and etheral.  I am so over the moon for this venue that I cannot wait to return to it.  Just a word of warning: if you hire me to be your wedding photographer, person reading this, then you best put an hour of portraits on your schedule beause I could take portraits there for DAYS and not exhaust all the awesome out of it.  It’s GORGEOUS.

But, back to Em and Dave.

These two people are so rad, so loving, and so secure in themselves, their faith and their friendships that they are nothing short of inspirational.  They are giving and gorgeous and I know that only extreme happiness is coming their way because they ask for nothing in return but laughter and smiles.  They deserve every bit of their joy and I feel extremely lucky to have met a real life warm fuzzy and better yet, to have photographed her wedding.

I’m so thrilled and honored that I could capture the newest addition for this rad family.  My version of Tahoe newborn photography is as relaxed, informal and as fussy or unfussy as your little one is.  You have to be flexible to capture all the details, from the toes, to the hands to the parents’ interactions with their new infant.  Jodi and Alex’s home session is as intimate, gorgeous and moving as I would ever hope a session could be.  I know they are going to make wonderful parents and I can’t wait to watch Isabella grow into a young lady.

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.  Over the years they’ve been extra kind to me, publishing me at their Napa wedding blog, their Bay Area wedding blog, and now, for the seventh time, at their Lake Tahoe wedding blog.  They always write really fun, kind, complimentary things which gives you extra warm fuzzies inside and their post on Brooke and Blake yesterday was no exception.  I’m so honored to have been chosen as Brooke and Blake’s Gar Woods wedding photographer.  Their day was exceptionally amazing from start to finish and it was so worth getting in the Lake for that group shot on the pier.

Follow this link to relive Brooke and Blake’s wedding, featured on Borrowed & Blue Lake Tahoe.
