Discovery Bay Country Club Wedding | Becca + Louie

By |August 8th, 2022|California, wedding|

About 8 years ago, I second shot a wedding at Tenaya Lodge in Yosemite for another photographer. I worked with this photographer quite a bit at the beginning of my career, despite the fact that our styles were EXTREMELY different. He was an older, very classic, traditional wedding photographer with a smidge of hokeyness (think props and signs and very awkward direction). I offered him a side of photography that he wasn't trained in and a more well rounded gallery (you should always hire seconds that are great at your weaknesses y'all). Flash forward to 2022 and now I'm apparently part of the family!

Palisades Tahoe Event Photographer | Soccer Shots

By |July 26th, 2022|California, Commercial Photography, Event Photos, Marketing, Photography|

Soccer Shots is an engaging youth soccer program for children between the ages of 2 and 8. Their message is powerful: to engage children in a fun way with age appropriate play that introduces them to fundamental soccer principles in a safe environment.  They are in 200 different cities in North America, including Canada, and they are serious about training their coaches and staff to the highest level to offer an incredible level of service no matter where the location. They are a franchise based brand and their annual franchise owners convention and meeting was held this year at Palisades Tahoe (formerly Squaw Valley) in the Olympic Valley, just outside Truckee, CA. With two high profile keynote speakers they wanted to make sure they had quality images of the event to share for future conferences and events.

Pearson-Arastradero Preserve Engagement Session

By |March 28th, 2022|California, Engagement, Portrait|

Although the south Bay Area offers many amazing locations for engagement sessions and family portraits, one stellar spot that I love is Pearson-Arastradero Preserve in Palo Alto. Depending on the time of year, a Pearson-Arastradero Preserve engagement session can offer you fields as far as the eye can see of beautiful swaying dead grasses or, if you are there in the winter as we were, rolling lush hills of green. The golden sunset light at Palo Alto's open preserve offers an abundance of opportunity for beautiful images and I was in heaven exploring for Lizzy and James' South Bay engagement session.

Cave Rock Elopement | Glenbrook, NV | Annie + Carter

By |May 25th, 2020|California, Elopement, wedding|

Couples choose elopements for a variety of reasons over traditional weddings, and now, in light of current events, I think that many couples may be forced into elopements over weddings for financial reasons. This is not a bad thing! Living in such an incredible, epic location, I have the good fortune to photograph a LOT of elopements and I absolutely love them.  Annie and Carter had the ultimate adventure for their elopement: hiking, climbing and scaling Cave Rock for incredible sunset memories!

Lake Tahoe Golf Course Wedding | Lake Tahoe, CA | Maria + Lery

By |March 16th, 2020|California, wedding|

Once upon a time, I forgot I had a wedding. Read all about it. As we are all aware of by now, 2020 is weird. 2019 thought it had everyone beat, but 2020 is all, "PFFFFFFFT. Hold my Claw." Read all about that time I forgot I had a wedding, missed brunch, and made new BFFs here because you have nothing better to do while you're stuck working at home.

Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel Wedding | Lake Tahoe, CA | Mandy + Chris

By |March 1st, 2020|California, wedding|

This is a story about Mandy and Chris's Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel wedding, but it's also about how Mandy and Chris are my people and I get really excited when I find my people. Mandy and Chris wanted some very simple things when they planned their wedding: they wanted the ceremony on the beach, they wanted their friends and family to spend quality time with them, they wanted it to be EXTRA relaxed, and since their Tahoe engagement session got snowed out, they wanted epic high views for their portraits. Their wedding and everything about their calm, relaxed and funny day was perfect and it was one of my favorite weddings of the year. Read more here!

Basecamp Hotel Wedding | South Lake Tahoe, CA | Philbert + Ming

By |February 5th, 2020|California, Tahoe, wedding|

Once upon a time there was a bride that broke her foot just weeks before her wedding. She didn't let it cramp her style though! Philbert and Ming had a perfectly relaxed outdoor summer wedding at Basecamp Hotel in South Lake Tahoe, completely with lawn games, a raucous late night dance party and great beer. Read more about some of my favorite Tahoe wedding vendors - Philbert and Ming definately hired the A Team!
