Lakeside Beach Elopement

Lakeside Beach Elopement | Lili + David

Lili and David met while working at a summer camp years ago.  He’s from Ireland and what ensued was a global romance, that involved trips to Australia, transAtlantic long distance love and finally, a pledge to wed.  It took sometime to secure David’s visa and Lili and David were adamant that I be the one to photograph their elopement, which is the ultimate compliment.  I got to pick the time (sunset of course!) and we started off with a portrait session at nearby Kahle Community Center and Rabe Meadows.

I’m so excited for these two to not only be in the same continent, but to have shared their experience with me.  They were nothing but laughter and smiles the entire evening.  It was an incredibly special Tahoe sunset Lakeside Beach elopement and I feel pretty lucky to have been the one to capture their ceremony.

Tahoe Engagement Session

Tahoe Engagement Session | Brianna + Aaron

Brianna and Aaron trekked all the way up to Tahoe and then back home to the bay area in one day just for their engagement session.  I felt like that was quite the effort just to come see me, so I gave them the royal tour and took them to all of my favorite spots for a ton of variety.  We started out with coffees at the always adorable and endearing Red Hut Cafe Soda Fountain on Ski Run Blvd and then followed it up with stops at Kahle Community Center, Rabe Meadows, and the meadow in Al Tahoe for sunset.  They were so fun to work with – they spent the entire time laughing and totally at ease and their love, affection and genuine enthusiasm just gushes from their photos.  I can’t wait for their wedding in August!

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!

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!
