It was so inspiring to be surrounded by so many amazing women in one place! If you hire me as your Everline Resort event photographer I'm going to give you, your attendees and your sponsors images that will not only document your day but also elevate it to a whole new level of fun, energy and that offers a visual representation of its success just like these.
This past month I had the good fortune of working for an amazing organization and capturing their event at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin, TX. Any day that my job is capturing the dedication of organizations whose vision is to promote sustainability is a great day in my books! Thanks to my event photos, these awesome companies are able to make their movement and vision more tangible, engaging, and relatable to a broader audience.
Do you love skiing? Do you have a winter birthday? If so, throwing a retro ski birthday party like my clients Kirsten and Micah did last month maybe the perfect way to celebrate.

More from Kirsten's Retro 50th Ski Birthday Party and why you should consider professional photos of you and your friends or family skiing here!

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.
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.
As a corporate retreat and event professional photographer, I’ve captured both small business openings, concerts, and conferences with thousands of attendees.

Here are a number of reasons you should hire a professional photographer for your corporate retreat.

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 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.

Founders of the Social Society OC are two badass females - Tamara Trainer and Emily Provansal - who met almost 10 years ago working together for a fashion brand. Throughout the pandemic they worked hard to pivot their covid-19 affected events business back into offering additional services that included social media strategy and marketing, influencer campaigns, content creation and more and I was honored to be hired by a female led company to capture a recent luxury installation at the Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe.
