Small intimate elopements and micro weddings have always been popular in Lake Tahoe, and now so more than ever.  I believe that everyone, no matter what their budget or the size of their event, deserves amazing photography.  Often, intimate weddings hire me for only an hour and that was the case with Gage and Nathan’s LGBTQ The Arch at Lakeside Beach elopement.  Gage and Nathan met at home in Indiana and BLEW MY MIND when they disclosed that Nathan’s first time on an airplane was to travel to California to get married!  These boys have big dreams and big plans for their lives together and I despite the fact that we only spent an hour together, I managed to learn so much about what they hope for their future. I expect to see y’all happy together in SF one day!
