Intimate Sand Harbor Microwedding | Heather + Evan

By |March 1st, 2021|microwedding, wedding|

I walked into Heather and Evan's Sand Harbor microwedding not quite knowing what to expect. It's one of my favorite ways to roll into a wedding day: with a little bit of mystery and excitement over the unknown. When I arrived, I gauged from their friends and family that were already gathered EXACTLY what the day was going to be like: full of relaxed laughter, good natured ribbing, and rapidly flowing alcohol. They were my kind of people. Read more about their intimate wedding on the shores of Lake Tahoe here.

Thunderbird Lodge Wedding | Laura + Ryan

By |February 15th, 2021|wedding|

Thunderbird Lodge is an incredibly special place: it's located on the north east side of Lake Tahoe, near Incline Village. It’s one of the oldest estates on the lake and the original owner was eccentric, to put it mildly.  The estate is one of a kind, both in story and physical presence.  It's one of my favorite places on Lake Tahoe to photograph weddings and I'm overjoyed to revisit this gorgeous and classic Thunderbird Lodge wedding from 2018.

Carpinteria Beach Micro Wedding

Like many couples, Sam and Bree faced challenges when planning and de-planning their wedding in 2020. Instead of postponing or cancelling, they decided that they would have an intimate ceremony for just immediate family, officiated by their best friend at their beach that has been in their family for generations.  Their Carpinteria Beach micro wedding was relaxed, simple, and full of laughter and plenty of IPAs.

Gastler Farm Wedding | Durham, CT | Monika + Mike |

By |December 14th, 2020|wedding|

While I know that their Gastler Farm wedding wasn't exactly what Mike and Monika had planned, and that not everyone they loved were able to be there, it was perfectly wonderful and absolutely picturesque in the greatest of ways and I'm so thrilled to have been a part of it. I have been a part of this family for 6 years now and I'm never going to let them get rid of me.

Winter Wedding Trends

By |December 7th, 2020|Tips, wedding, Wedding Planning|

Summer isn’t the only beautiful, busy season in Lake Tahoe. It’s a peak destination for avid winter sports athletes and for those who just come for the views. In the past, it’s started snowing as early as September, so by the time winter officially rolls around, everything is covered in the most picturesque blanket of snow. There’s something special about winter weddings in Tahoe, and every year, I look forward to the new trends and spins that winter couples add to their day.

Gifting prints for the holidays should ease your stress and I'm here to make it extra easy on you and tell you how to choose the best photos to gift and some of my favorite places to buy them.

Tahoe Backyard Micro Wedding | Kierney + Will

By |November 16th, 2020|Elopement, wedding|

When Kierney and Will originally planned their wedding, it was going to be a completely relaxed BBQ beach adventure.  They wanted games and good times, socializing and tequila.  As COVID hit, it became increasingly clear that their wedding dreams were going to be dashed and they completely changed course: calling me out of the blue and deciding to elope at the county clerk's office.  It was the perfect afternoon, in my opinion: beers, bikes, and beach champagne. When they finally celebrated they did so with a private backyard Tahoe micro wedding and it was absolutely perfect in every way.
