I’m glad we found each other to be a good fit for your wedding day. Seriously, nothing brings me more joy than being on the same wavelength as my clients. After we’ve met, covered the basics and some logistics, we need to talk expectations about day-of photos. This is something you’ll want to take time to think about and discuss with your partner (and family, if they’re involved). For example, everyone has different expectations about first looks. Let’s make sure we’re clear on these with plenty of time to spare so your day can be worry-free. Here are my general recommendations (based on many years of experience in the wedding photography industry) on how to prioritize what photos are important to you on your wedding day.
There's something so magical and incredibly unusual about living in a town where it's sometimes snows so much that two cars cannot drive down one road at the same time. When the snow banks that are taller than your car it feels both eerie and thrilling. When the street lights shine on new snow while you're driving down a quiet dark nighttime road, you get straight up fucking giddy because you know what it's like to jump off of a cliff into powder and whether you landed or not, it's still an exhilarating experience. This may seem like a strange way to start out a wedding blog, but I know that Nicole and David completely understand THIS feeling acutely. It's a passion for exploration and adventure and the shared experience that Tahoe provides.
It’s that time of year again when we feel the urge to make a New Year’s resolution. Whether it’s for personal or business growth, we should take time to think about how we decide on these goals.

As a goal oriented person that's always interested in my own growth, both personally and professionally, I'm here with some tips and suggestions for how to set intentions for your business in the new year.
Neither a pandemic, nor a fire, could derail Elizabeth and Matt's plans. After two reschedules, three dates, and a fire evacuation, Elizabeth and Matt finally had the backyard garden wedding of the dreams and I would be apt to say that the phrase "third time's a charm" is perfectly applicable here.
As humans, we often inflate our perceived ability to multitask. Our brains actually suffer when we start task switching and our productivity suffers. Stay productive at work with these five simple tips that will keep you from ineffectively task switching throughout your day.
Sometimes I get things REALLY wrong and Luke and Amanda's Edgewood Tahoe wedding was one of these things. I had a preconceived expectation for their event: I didn't think it was going to be very rowdy, I didn't expect them to be big partiers AT ALL, and over all I just sort of expected this quiet very subdued fancy pants Edgewood wedding. BOY WAS I WRONG. Read all about it the big surprise of the night here!
Despite how much time I spend traveling, very little of it is spent exploring new places in the United States. I have a tendency and frequent desire to explore foreign countries when I have the chance, rather than destinations in my own backyard. That made a quick weekend trip to Bozeman, Montana this past October an absolutely wonderful surprise and delight, despite the frigid temps. If you've got a hankering to visit Montana, I have the perfect itinerary for you for two days in Bozeman and make sure you pack that puffy!
There was dancing and there was singing. And then there was more dancing and then there was more singing. And ultimately, there was dancing and singing all over the place at an absolutely hilarious and epic Plumpjack Inn Wedding. The only thing we could have used less of: ..... wind. Did you think I was going to say "dancing and singing"?? NEVER. There's never too much of that!
I was really excited to partner with MidTown District of Reno to help create some advertising images for their brand new Midtown Reno First Thursdays. Midtown Reno First Thursdays is a way for the Midtown District to highlight all the fun MidTown retailers, services, bars and restaurants that make MidTown Reno so fantastic! On any given First Thursdays, you can catch a Pineapple Pedicab and get peddled around to all your favorite Reno haunts. I love Reno and I especially love MidTown Reno!
From the travel bugs to the homebodies, there are a ton of things you can do with the money you've saved for that giant wedding that you may no longer want to throw. You desperately want to get married, but planning a wedding during a global pandemic is, well, still not fun. Maybe you’ve postponed it (maybe even multiple times), rescheduled it, or downsized, but if you’re just plain done with the constant change of plans, here are some suggestions of things to do instead of having a big wedding.
The beauty of a destination wedding is that it feels like a vacation with all of your favorite people together. The beauty of a summer camp destination wedding is that all of your favorite people are together in the same place at a SUMMER CAMP. And when I say that there is nothing better than adult summer camp, you should believe me. The tl:dr of this post is that Michelle and Jeff did it 100% right with their Jimbo's Club on the Point wedding in upstate NY and I loved all of it.
