Chateau at Incline Village

Chateau Wedding | Incline Village, NV | Caitlin and Brad

Can all weddings have flower girls that clean up their flowers during the ceremony please?  For real.  Have you ever seen anything more adorable?

Caitlin and Brad met while attending the University of Arizona and now are loving living in Reno.  Mountains, athletics and four seasons are important to them and their friends definately did not let any of this, or their antics during college, escape their speeches at the wedding!  Brad’s brother actually kicked off the entertainment: he delivered, without a doubt, the most hysterical and amazing best man speech I’ve ever heard in the history of all weddings.  I could hardly take photos through the laughter induced tears.

Their Chateau wedding in Incline Village was graced with beautiful light, a kick ass dance party and plenty of laughter.  It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple!

Tahoe Engagement Session

Tahoe Engagement Session | Lake Tahoe, CA | Lisa + Jeff

Lisa and Jeff wanted a double whammy of locations for their Tahoe engagement session: forest and mountains were important to them so we hit up Kahle Community Center for the aspens and the forest and then the Trout Creek meadow behind Al Tahoe for some epic mountain views of Tallac and a killer sunset.  These two were married earlier in March and I’m looking forward to sharing their gorgeous Tahoe winter wedding photos with everyone!

Tahoe Family Photos

Tahoe Family Photographer | Morrow Family

It looks a little bit different in Tahoe today than it did a month and a half ago when the Morrow Family hired me to be their Tahoe Family Photographer!  If you can believe it, this is the very same spot that Melissa and Eric and I ventured into during one of our most epic snowstorms of the year for a snowshoeing meets engagement photo adventure!  The Morrow family was incredibly fun to work with – they are a versatile, fun loving motley crew that I meshed well with straight from the get-go.  They are also from Texas, so, of course, I felt right at home with them!

Landing Resort Wedding

Landing Resort Wedding | Lake Tahoe, CA | Lex + Michael

Lex and Michael’s image from their Hora may be one of my most favorite images ever.  The combination of surprise, concern and hands everywhere makes me incredibly happy.  I also couldn’t help but put a ton of their portraits in this post, which is unusual for me, but they are so ridiculously good looking and adorable that I couldn’t help myself.  This young couple has been together SINCE JUNIOR HIGH (yes, seriously) and their parents and families are already best friends.  What I expected to be a quiet, subdued Sunday brunch Landing Resort Wedding was the exact opposite: from a poignant ceremony, to tear filled speeches, to a pumped up dance party, this wedding delivered like no other brunch wedding ever has.

Gardnerville Senior Portraits

Gardnerville Senior Portraits | Hope Valley, CA | Emily

Emily is a bright, vivacious girl that happens to absolutely love my dog, so I’m quite partial to her.  Side note: her mom owns Professional Image Cleaning and if you’re in the market for a house-cleaner, I highly recommend them and use them myself!  We took Emily’s photos in the fall and we were really hoping for some epic golden fall California sunshine for her Gardnerville senior portraits and I must say that I think we succeeded with flying colors!

Senior portraits are not only fun to take but useful for all sorts of reasons: graduation announcements, keepsakes, gifts for family members and friends, and more!  Lauren Lindley offers senior portrait package specials and if you want, you can even combine your senior portrait session with a family photography session to make sure that you and your entire family have memories for years to come!
