Lauren Lindley is a Tahoe based wedding photographer available for wedding photography in the Reno Tahoe Area and worldwide. My Tahoe wedding photography and destination wedding photography packages are fully customizable and are based on an hourly rates of $400/hour. I recognize that not all weddings are lavish affairs and I have a soft spot for small, informal weddings, elopements, or otherwise non-traditional weddings. I will always work with budgets if I feel you and your wedding are a right fit.
My Tahoe wedding photography packages include travel within the continental US. You read that right. Have camera, love travel. If you are getting married anywhere in the lower 48, everything is included. Passport required? No problem. Travel arrangements for Alaska, Hawaii and outside the US are arranged on a case by case basis.
A portion of every wedding and portrait session booked will be donated to the non-profit of my choice for the year.
The Baltimore Dance Crews Project, a 501(c)3 non profit created by Brian Gerardo, is my recipient for 2017. I was connected to Brian through my two 2016 grooms, Jack and Kyle. The Baltimore Dance Crew Project takes a multi-pronged approach to youth development by using hip hop dance to strengthen the relationships across generations. Students are not only engaging in dance, they’re forging relationships with older dancers who maintain careers outside of dance. The crew itself is a very necessary support network for disadvantaged and low income youth and has successfully forged positive relationships between peers and role models, leading to academic achievement, healthy lifestyles, and enhanced youth leadership.
Hope Shines was my 2015 donation recipient. Hope Shines, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2007 that provides disadvantaged children in Rwanda both local and foreign mentoring and support through programs focusing on education, nutrition and health. Hope Shines was founded on the belief that every child should be given the opportunity for a healthy, happy life both in mind and body and HOPE for a bright future. Two of my 2014 wedding clients, Dan and Stephanie, are the executive director and the medical advisor for the organization.
Mary’s House was my 2016 donation recipient. Mary’s House is the creation of one of my 2015 brides, Jen Flynn. From 2008-2010, Jen lived in Vietnam as a volunteer aiding the impoverished and disadvantaged children of the country. When Jen returned home, she was inspired to do more and in January of 2012, Jen opened Mary’s House, named after her grandmother. Living in the home are 24 children ranging in age from 4-17 years old. The children come to Mary’s House through a referral by the local government. Although a few of them had a single parent or relative who had taken them in, many are orphaned and all are impoverished. Mary’s House provides them a safe, loving home environment with consistent nutrition, education, and health care.
