Northstar Wedding

Northstar Wedding | Truckee, CA | Kendra + Tom

I have never seen a bride so incredibly full of laughter as Kendra.  From start to finish, not only was she throwing her head back in huge guffaws, but so was every single person around here.  This was my first time photographing a Northstar Wedding in Truckee, CA and I must say – their staff and venue is incredible.  From a gorgeous mountain top ceremony and cocktail hour to a evening reception under a tent in the village, everything was flawless.  The food was incredible, the staff was amazing and Ike and Martin not only are comedians, but had the dancefloor jumping from start to finish.

Disabled Sports Far West

Disabled Sports Ability Week | Wounded Warriors

I am very fortunate to have been able to donate my time for three consecutive years now to the Wounded Warrior Ability Camp at Disabled Sports USA Far West, an amazing non profit out of Alpine Meadows, Lake Tahoe that provides affordable inclusive physical and recreational activities that build health and confidence to the disabled.  The Ability Camp is a week long program that provides specialized instruction in adaptive alpine skiing and snowboarding for up to 25 soldiers and marines disabled in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This year, Disabled Sport’s USA Far West hosted 18 wounded warriors and their guests at three different Lake Tahoe resorts.  Big thanks to Northstar, and Squaw and Alpine Ski Resorts for sponsoring such an amazing program.
