These two are the kind of clients that I instantly regretted not having more of a relationship with before their wedding day. The MINUTE I started talking to Ryan I felt immediately at ease with him. While we waited on Laura to show up for their first look, he regaled me with hilarity and poignant stories about wedding planning and anticipation. When Laura showed up I realized that I wanted these two to be my new best friends.
It’s always been really important to me to have an a la carte / hourly rate for folks with no minimum because I think that everyone deserves beautiful photos at the budget they can afford. This wedding is a perfect example of what you can do with only a few hours of coverage. Their Revive Coffee and Wine Wedding in the heart of South Lake Tahoe looks like it’s in the middle of the woods. You would never know it’s right smack in the middle of town! It is a GORGEOUS afternoon venue because the light is amazing because of the way it is situated and the nearby meadow offers a great spot for portraits before the ceremony. Laura and Ryan wanted a small intimate ceremony with their friends and loved ones there. It was basic, DIY, simple and so incredibly special because of it.
And oh, did I mention that they had homemade macarons? So many. And in lemon. Be still my heart.
Oh yeah, and they tipped me in wine. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: my clients really get me.
It has been an incredibly long time since I’ve had time to blog a wedding and I actually don’t particularly have that much time so instead of uploading 25 photos in here, I thought I’d just share their short, charming highlight album video with you instead.
