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 $500/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.

Featured Wedding and Resources

Lakeside Beach LGBTQ Elopement | Gage + Nathan

By |August 9th, 2021|Categories: Elopement, LGBT, microwedding, wedding|Tags: , , , , |

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 Lakeside Beach LGBTQ elopement. More from their intimate day here!

Sugar Bowl Wedding | Truckee, CA | Whit + Steve

By |July 26th, 2021|Categories: wedding|Tags: , |

When Whit and Steve's Sugar Bowl wedding was postponed by COVID they were hardly deterred. They planned a postponed event and they knew exactly what they wanted: a gorgeous laid back setting where all their friends could stay on site, a RAGINGLY epic dance party, an open bar and tons of laughter and great food.  Their Sugar Bowl Resort wedding was everything they wanted and more.

Martis Camp Elopement | Jenny + Tom

By |July 12th, 2021|Categories: Elopement, microwedding, wedding|Tags: , , |

A lot of mountains had to be moved for Jenny and Tom's Covid affected Martis Camp elopement slash micro-wedding to happen. The largest of which was that Tom's parents live in Israel and were worried about being able to attend at all, despite the fact that the were both vaccinated last December. Tom's father spent the entirety of his pandemic life training to ride his bicycle around Lake Tahoe. More from Jenny and Tom's micro-wedding/elopement here!

Summer wedding treats and favors that steal the show

By |July 5th, 2021|Categories: Tips, wedding, Wedding Planning|Tags: , , |

Having a memorable wedding isn’t just about the open bar and the ridiculous dance moves your uncle pulled out on the dance floor. It’s about the intentional, small details that make it uniquely yours. Some couples choose to bring touches of home to their day or to include their fur babies, and some (those of us with a sweet tooth), like to go all out on treats for our guests. Here are this summer’s steal-the-show wedding treats and favors!

Haue Valley Wedding | St Louis, MO | Sam + Patrick

By |June 28th, 2021|Categories: Travel, wedding|Tags: , |

I've now photographed two (YES! TWO!) full and large post pandemic weddings in all their glory: Anna and Harrison's amazing second line filled New Orleans wedding, and Whitney and Steve's Sugar Bowl wedding, which will be coming to this blog VERY soon.  Until then, I have an amazing wedding to share that somehow never made it to the blog. Sam and Patrick recently celebrated their second wedding anniversary on May the 4th so that seems like a perfectly good reason to finally share images from their Haue Valley Wedding in St. Louis, MO.  Sam grew up in St. Louis and her father was actually one of my former co-workers at Pearl Izumi, which made this wedding all the more special. More from their spring wedding in the Missouri countryside here!

Elms Mansion Wedding | New Orleans | Anna + Harrison

By |June 14th, 2021|Categories: wedding|Tags: , |

New Orleans is a special kind of home to me. It's about family, and revelry, and fun. The spirit that surrounds me there is a dangerous one: I always joke I could never live there full time because I'd just get fat and happy. New Orleans is about love and joy, porch sipping, potlucks, music, and second lines.  Anna and Harrison's Elms Mansion wedding was every bit of all of these things, with a LOT of rain thrown in. Who Dat!
