Texas Concert Photographer | Allen Stone’s Karaoke Extravaganza

By |November 14th, 2022|Austin, Commercial Photography, Event Photos, texas|

Allen Stone is no stranger to wacky ideas. Back in 2019, Al and his best friend Julian Gavilanes embarked on a karaoke tour of the United States. This year, they decided to bring it back, bigger and better than ever - a multi-state tour, a full crew, with a polished story, and 100x the fun and hijinks. It was a blend of an acoustic concert, with Allen performing intimate renditions of beloved songs, as well as new material, along with pre-show VIP meet and greets, an audience participation segment (that's the karaoke y'all), games, more than one or two surprises a night, and more! Photos and more from Allen Stone's Texas stops on his 2022 Karaoke Extravaganza.

Camp Galilee Summer Camp Wedding | Rachael + Garrett

By |November 7th, 2022|camping, Tahoe, wedding|

A summer camp wedding is the perfect destination wedding for the client who wants a relaxed, but all encompassed vacation weekend for their celebration. A relaxing destination wedding at an established summer camp like Camp Galilee allows everyone to enjoy an extended amount of time socializing, but in a more budget friendly way and, better yet, all on the same property. For Rachael and Garrett, who both previously worked at Camp Galilee, it was the perfect location because it is a place near and dear to both their hearts.

By |October 17th, 2022|Photography, Tips, Tips for Creatives, wedding, Wedding Planning|

When people choose to become photographers, it’s for the love of it: sharing moments of pure joy at weddings, births, and family sessions. Being the person behind the camera is much more than the art of capturing these moments, though, and it’s important, especially if you’re just starting your photography business, to zoom out and take inventory of the hidden costs of running a photography business.

Consider this when you’re creating your own wedding timeline

By |October 5th, 2022|Tips, wedding, Wedding Planning|

While your photographer will be happy to help you create a timeline of the day based on photos, it’s really up to you or (preferably) your wedding coordinator to create a full-fledged timeline. The day-of timeline is an easily overlooked, but essential piece that ensures your day runs smoothly. In case you don’t have a wedding coordinator, here are a few tips what to do if you’re creating your own wedding timeline.

Reno Event Photographer | Virginia City Camel Races

By |September 26th, 2022|Commercial Photography, Event Photos, Nevada|

Ready to get a little wild and wacky? The Reno Tahoe area offers a wide variety of fun for the entire family with year round events that are incredibly entertaining, family oriented, and, in the case of the Virginia City Camel Races, a little bit weird.  From Genoa's Candy Dance, to Carson Valley Days, to the Reno Balloon Races, Reno has something for everyone in your family.  When wildfire season hit Lake Tahoe with surprise this fall, we ventured down to the clean air in Virginia City to check out the Virginia City Camel Races for the first time.  I brought my camera because I was feeling a little bit creative that day and as a Reno Event Photographer, I'm always looking for fun and inspiring Reno Tahoe events to photograph.

Kickstarting your business’ social media presence: LinkedIn

By |September 19th, 2022|Commercial Photography, Marketing, Tips for Creatives|

Using LinkedIn for marketing doesn't have to be complicated: it's one of the best resources in social media for networking. LinkedIn is a great tool for connecting with existing clients and potential clients. Some of the easiest ways to engage on LinkedIn are by requesting endorsements and reviews from past clients (which show on your business page), allowing employees to claim your business as a workplace (this is how word-of-mouth works!), recruiting new talent by showing off your company culture, and following thought leaders in your industry (and re-sharing messages that resonate with your business).

Tahoe South of North Brewing Wedding | Matt + Patrice

By |September 12th, 2022|Death, Tahoe, wedding|

Matt and Patrice have been together for all of their adult lives. They never originally intended to marry, feeling together wholly outside of convention and societal norms. Patrice's late mother, however, wanted nothing more than to see them commit their lives together in the bond of marriage and when she was diagnosed with an aggressive terminal illness, Matt and Patrice planned a wedding. Patrice's mother never saw her marry - she passed on the day of their original elopement during the year of Covid lockdowns. They made a pledge that they would celebrate surrounded by the people they love and one year later, Matt and Patrice renewed their vows in the best way they knew how - with a grand party in Lake Tahoe with a Tahoe South of North Brewing Wedding, absolutely surrounded by all their friends and family.  More from their Basecamp Hotel destination wedding in South Lake Tahoe is up on my blog today.

By |September 5th, 2022|Commercial Photography, Event Photos|

As a corporate retreat and event professional photographer, I’ve captured both small business openings, concerts, and conferences with thousands of attendees. Most clients seek out professional photography for these events because they’ve seen the quality and versatility of the in-the-moment photos and have used the photos to grow their businesses, promote future events, and engage with their clients. Here are a number of reasons you should hire a professional photographer for your corporate retreat.

Round Hill Pines Wedding | Laura and Hayden

By |August 29th, 2022|wedding|

Round Hill Pines Beach and Resort is one of my favorite beach wedding venues in Lake Tahoe for a reason. After being purchased and renovated by Bob and Tammy Hassett in recent years, they've really stepped up their game. The staff is incredibly competent, the food is excellent, the new patio and grill is fantastic, and they give you a private beach location for your event with a perfect backdrop of Lake Tahoe.  What does perfect mean to me?  There's no beach goers nearby, it's not filled with boats in the background, and there's great scale because of the inlet of trees and rocks in the foreground that give scope and scale to the great expanse of the beautiful place I live in.
