Tahoe Wedding Photographer
Lauren Lindley is a Lake Tahoe-based wedding photographer available for wedding photography in the Reno Tahoe Area and worldwide. My Lake Tahoe wedding photography and destination wedding photography packages are fully customizable and are based on an hourly rate of $650/hour. I recognize that not all weddings are lavish affairs and I have a soft spot for small, informal weddings, elopements, or otherwise non-traditional weddings. I will always work with budgets if I feel you and your wedding are a right fit.
My Tahoe wedding photography packages include travel within the continental US. You read that right. Have camera, love travel! If you are getting married anywhere in the lower 48, everything is included. Passport required? No problem. Travel arrangements for Alaska, Hawaii, and outside the US are arranged on a case-by-case basis.

A portion of every wedding and portrait session booked will be donated to the non-profit of my choice for the year.
The Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe aims to empower all young people to reach their full potential by providing a safe place to learn and grow, ongoing mentorship relationships with caring adult professionals and volunteers, life-enhancing programs and character development experiences, and vital and necessary afterschool and summer programs, along with free meals. The club must raise $1000 for every day they are open. They service 300 children a day, year round. 66% of the families served by our chapter live below the California poverty line, 88% are under 12, and 78% are from single parent families. Through partnerships with other non-profits and businesses such as SOS Outreach, Live Violence Free and Vail Resorts, they are able to offer activities that these children wouldn’t normally have access to, such as skiing at Kirkwood, Heavenly Discovery Days, Girls Empowerment programs, free theater performances and more! The executive director of our local chapter of the Boys and Girls Club is a client of mine and I’m thrilled to support a local non-profit for 2018.
The Baltimore Dance Crews Project, a non profit created by Brian Gerardo, was my recipient for 2017. I was connected to Brian through my two 2016 grooms, Jack and Kyle. The Baltimore Dance Crew Project takes a multi-pronged approach to youth development by using hip hop dance to strengthen the relationships across generations. Students are not only engaging in dance, they’re forging relationships with older dancers who maintain careers outside of dance. The crew itself is a very necessary support network for disadvantaged and low income youth and has successfully forged positive relationships between peers and role models, leading to academic achievement, healthy lifestyles, and enhanced youth leadership.
Mary’s House was my 2016 donation recipient. Mary’s House is the creation of one of my 2015 brides, Jen Flynn. From 2008-2010, Jen lived in Vietnam as a volunteer aiding the impoverished and disadvantaged children of the country. When Jen returned home, she was inspired to do more and in January of 2012, Jen opened Mary’s House, named after her grandmother. Living in the home are 24 children ranging in age from 4-17 years old. The children come to Mary’s House through a referral by the local government. Although a few of them had a single parent or relative who had taken them in, many are orphaned and all are impoverished. Mary’s House provides them a safe, loving home environment with consistent nutrition, education, and health care.
Hope Shines was my 2015 donation recipient. Hope Shines, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2007 that provides disadvantaged children in Rwanda both local and foreign mentoring and support through programs focusing on education, nutrition and health. Hope Shines was founded on the belief that every child should be given the opportunity for a healthy, happy life both in mind and body and HOPE for a bright future. Two of my 2014 wedding clients, Dan and Stephanie, are the executive director and the medical advisor for the organization.

Featured Wedding and Resources
Triple S Ranch Wedding | Calistoga, CA
Sarah and Nathan picked quite possibly the best wedding venue in Napa, CA. It’s beautiful. It’s unique. It’s luxurious without being pretentious. It has all the elements a venue needs to make your wedding day unforgettable. From the stunning views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains to the exquisite gardens and elegant indoor spaces that make you feel like you’re in a villa in Italy, this venue has it all. I fell in love with both Calistoga and the rolling hills of this Triple S Ranch wedding and you will too.
Lucky Arrow Retreat Wedding | Dripping Springs, TX
Dripping Springs, located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, is a perfect destination wedding location and one that I personally would love to visit more often! From breathtaking natural beauty to top-notch wedding venues and accommodations, and a wealth of breweries, wineries, and distilleries, Dripping Springs has everything you need to make your wedding a memorable and enjoyable experience for you and your guests, whether they are coming from Austin or farther. This past fall, I was honored to second shoot a Lucky Arrow Retreat wedding with my friend and frequent associate Lisa Hause. We both fell head over heels for this incredible all inclusive summer camp wedding venue just outside of Austin, TX.
Catalina Island Wedding Photographer | Laura + Chris
I might have found the most perfect destination wedding location in the United States, and by I, I mean my friends and clients Laura and Chris may have found the most perfect destination wedding location in the United States and I just happened to FALL IN LOVE. Catalina Island, located off the coast of California, is a popular destination for tourists looking for a mix of natural beauty and recreational activities and better yet, for those of us in Northern California, it's simply a one-hour flight away. Have you ever dreamed of a place where you feel like you are in Greece, but in California? Well, we found it and it's called Catalina Island. If you are looking for a Catalina Island Wedding Photographer, sign me the fuck up because I can't wait to go back.
Breckenridge Wedding Photographer | Katie + TJ
Planning a wedding is a CHALLENGE. You may be overly excited about your engagement, only to discover when it comes to wedding planning all the fun seems to be leaching out of the process, leaving you languishing and overwhelmed. Sound familiar? I'm here to tell you that when it comes to planning a wedding, especially a destination wedding, there are plenty of benefits to opting for a small, intimate micro-wedding. There are even more benefits when you start looking at venues and decide to go with a backyard wedding at a private estate. Katie and TJ did exactly that and the result was a hilarious, intimate, and absolutely perfect private estate wedding in Summit County, CO.
Deer Park Villa Wedding | Michael + Shannon
When I finally delivered Michael and Shannon's Deer Park Villa wedding gallery to them, Michael told me that it it "felt like a friend" had captured their wedding. "You caught the moments a close friend would have caught for me." What a wonderful compliment that is. I have to be honest though - it was easy to make the Deer Park Villa look stunning because, to be frank, it's an incredibly stunning venue tucked away into the charming af town of Fairfax, CA.
Notre Dame des Victoires Wedding | Andrea + Sean
Andrea's grandparents held a Notre Dame des Victoires wedding, so when they decided to have a destination elopement in San Francisco, it seemed like the perfect location, complete with a reception at the Mill Rose Inn in Half Moon Bay, CA.
