I was on a chairlift at Kirkwood Mountain Resort for what may or may not be the first and last powder day of our ski season when I got a phone call asking if I could photograph a Harvey’s Tahoe Elopement in less than an hour and a half.
I of course said yes.
You can’t get married without a photographer!
Thankfully Liz and Tony didn’t mind when I showed up in my ski gear.
More to come from this gorgeous couple.
I thought my wedding season for 2014 was concluded and wrapped up but Santa Claus brought me a surprise Lake Tahoe elopement for Christmas! Shana and Randy decided to get married at the end of a gorgeous Lake Tahoe pier for their Beacon Tahoe wedding and I was honored to be included in their ceremony. Even better, I never imagined I’d have the chance to shoot another wedding that involved a fire truck in my lifetime. This was clearly wrong. Two fire trucks at two weddings in one year!
Shana and Randy surprised their family, who happen to all be close friends of mine, by showing up in Lake Tahoe unannounced on Christmas Eve. They flew across the country from Virginia on a whim and with even bigger news in store than just their presence: they were going to elope on the shores of Lake Tahoe while they were here!
I was more than thrilled to photograph their day for them. Here’s a sneak peek from Randy and Shana’s elopement at the Beacon Bar and Grill pier. Happy holidays to all those Christmas brides out there!

I know that I say that every family I meet is the best most fun family I ever photographed, but these guys were the best most fun family ever.
