South Lake Tahoe Wedding Photography

Tahoe Wedding Photography

Best of Tahoe 2014Lauren Lindley is a Tahoe based wedding photographer available for wedding photography in the Reno Tahoe Area and worldwide. My Tahoe wedding photography and destination wedding photography packages are fully customizable and are based on an hourly rates 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.

Giving Back

A portion of every wedding and portrait session booked will be donated to the non-profit of my choice for the year.

Boys and Girls Club of Tahoe

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.

Former Recipients

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.

Round Hill Pines Wedding | Laura and Hayden

By |August 29th, 2022|Categories: wedding|Tags: , , |

Round Hill Pines Beach and Resort is one of my favorite beach wedding venues in Lake Tahoe for a reason. After being purchased and renovated by Bob and Tammy Hassett in recent years, they've really stepped up their game. The staff is incredibly competent, the food is excellent, the new patio and grill is fantastic, and they give you a private beach location for your event with a perfect backdrop of Lake Tahoe.  What does perfect mean to me?  There's no beach goers nearby, it's not filled with boats in the background, and there's great scale because of the inlet of trees and rocks in the foreground that give scope and scale to the great expanse of the beautiful place I live in. See more from a Round Hill Pines wedding here!

Discovery Bay Country Club Wedding | Becca + Louie

By |August 8th, 2022|Categories: California, wedding|Tags: , , |

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!

Grass Valley Wedding Photographer | Kenna + Hasan

By |July 18th, 2022|Categories: wedding|Tags: , , , , |

Kenna's lifelong dream was to get married on her family's property outside of Grass Valley and Nevada City.  Located in Penn Valley, CA, the ranch boasts massive cliffs with a river running through it, sloping hills, dense forest, and plenty of space for all of their friends to camp and rabblerouse. Their wedding was set for May of 2020.  Due to the pandemic, their Grass Valley wedding was set to be rescheduled once, and then again.  Two years later, I was incredibly honored to finally reconnect with Kenna and Hasan and finally capture their celebration on Kenna's family's ranch.

Holly’s Ocean Meadow Wedding | Mendocino, CA | Ali + Seth

By |June 27th, 2022|Categories: Travel, wedding, Wine|Tags: , |

Ali and Seth LOVE bikes. They love bikes so much they wanted their Holly's Ocean Meadow Wedding to be filled with them! They love bikes so much they were going to go on a bikepacking trip across Europe as their honeymoon. I ALSO love bikes! Seemingly, this was an absolute match made in heaven and I was so excited to return to Holly's Ocean Meadow in Mendocino, CA to capture their amazingly perfect bike filled wedding day.

Thinking about getting married in Lake Tahoe? Congrats! It’s one of the most beautiful places in the world (and that’s why I live here). Before choosing a Lake Tahoe wedding venue, it’s important to consider what you want your photos to look like, or, in other words, how you want the lake to appear in your photos. Depending on the venue location and time of day, our majestic body of water serves as a giant mirror (eek), so you’ll want to keep these tips in mind before booking your venue and selecting your ceremony time. Never fear, though, your trusty neighborhood photographer is here to help.

Elope at Sand Harbor State Park | Jeremy + Siobhan

By |May 16th, 2022|Categories: Elopement, Tahoe, wedding|Tags: , , |

With crystal clear blue waters, the mountain backdrop of Lake Tahoe, and white sandy beaches, Sand Harbor State Park is one of the best locations on Lake Tahoe to elope or have a small intimate wedding. Lake Tahoe is an incredibly special place to Jeremy and Siobhan and their intimate perfectly planned event reflected that.
