When it comes to adventurous types, my clients Greg and Daphne might just take home the gold. They wanted NOTHING more than a magical white Tahoe winter wedding and a magical white blizzard of a Tahoe winter wedding is what the weather gods provided for them. If you are cold blooded, or just want to stress out your family (I kid, I kid), the magic of a Tahoe winter wedding is unmatched: glistening snow, brutally crisp air, and breathtaking landscapes (that you might not be able to see from all that pow coming down) create a memorable backdrop. However, planning a winter wedding in Tahoe comes with its own set of challenges and opportunities, as this rad couple discovered and it is not for the faint of heart. Photos from Greg and Daphne's winter wedding and a guide to planning your own await you!
This past summer, thanks to two beloved clients of mine, I had the opportunity to take 10 days and explore the wild remoteness that western Montana has to offer thanks to their Glacier National Park Wedding. Glacier National Park is STUNNING, not to mention, it’s an unparalleled backdrop for a ridiculously gorgeous wedding portrait. It’s got majestic peaks, breathtaking mountains that stack on each other as far as the eye can see, expansive lakes, wilderness for days. Whether you consider yourself to be an outdoorsey adventurous go-getter or simply stick to the road more traveled, it’s still an unforgettable experience. If you’re interested in a Glacier National Park wedding, Marquie and Josh did it right – here's a few tips on how to have the perfect Big Sky Country wedding day.
I love bicycles more than anything, and I especially love clients who decide to incorporate their shared love of bicycles into their weddings! It's Bike Month here in Tahoe, so here's all the reasons why you should consider incorporating bicycles into your wedding, whether it's in Lake Tahoe or elsewhere!
First thing you need to know about these Greg and Daphne: they are bold and adventurous. Daphne wanted nothing but snow on her wedding day and snow she got. In fact, what they got was an absolute downright blizzard. I'm not sure why they bothered to do their hair, but it felt right so they went with it. Daphne and Greg are very clearly surrounded by people who love them very much because every guest accommodated their wacky winter Idle Hour wedding with few complaints. I can assure you though, everyone had very cold hands.
I consider it to be the highest honor to be hired by friends and family. When my college friend and dorm-mate, Eileen, reached out to me to tell me that she was getting re-married and that she would like to hire me, it was such a tremendous compliment. It is no question that when friends and family members choose to hire you, it clearly indicates their support and belief in your skills and expertise so I thank Eileen for that.

I might have found the most perfect destination wedding location in the United States, and by I, I mean my friends and clients Laura and Chris may have found the most perfect destination wedding location in the United States and I just happened to FALL IN LOVE. Catalina Island, located off the coast of California, is a popular destination for tourists looking for a mix of natural beauty and recreational activities and better yet, for those of us in Northern California, it's simply a one-hour flight away. Have you ever dreamed of a place where you feel like you are in Greece, but in California? Well, we found it and it's called Catalina Island. If you are looking for a Catalina Island Wedding Photographer, sign me the fuck up because I can't wait to go back.
Planning a wedding is a CHALLENGE. You may be overly excited about your engagement, only to discover when it comes to wedding planning all the fun seems to be leaching out of the process, leaving you languishing and overwhelmed. Sound familiar? I'm here to tell you that when it comes to planning a wedding, especially a destination wedding, there are plenty of benefits to opting for a small, intimate micro-wedding. There are even more benefits when you start looking at venues and decide to go with a backyard wedding at a private estate. Katie and TJ did exactly that and the result was a hilarious, intimate, and absolutely perfect private estate wedding in Summit County, CO.
Y'all - we already know that weddings are expensive AF, but let's be real here: the cost of getting married has been on the rise for years, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

When I finally delivered Michael and Shannon's Deer Park Villa wedding gallery to them, Michael told me that it it "felt like a friend" had captured their wedding. "You caught the moments a close friend would have caught for me." What a wonderful compliment that is. I have to be honest though - it was easy to make the Deer Park Villa look stunning because, to be frank, it's an incredibly stunning venue tucked away into the charming af town of Fairfax, CA.
