Winter Music Themed Wedding | Tannenbaum Event Center | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

You never know when you’re going to meet the love of your life. It could be the grocery store or when you’re out with friends. For Alex and Trinda, they met when they were in the UNR marching band. By the sounds of it - it was love at first sight for both of them. These two love each other so deeply and it shows.

Being lovers of music, they of course had to incorporate that into their wedding. Sheets of music and candy bowls made of records brought the theme into this gorgeous classic wedding at Tannenbaum Event Center, and everyone wore Converse or Vans Even though it’s technically Spring, we were not short of snow. In fact, there was so much snow, all my normal shooting spots for the venue were under about 6’ of it! So we improvised, and it couldn’t have been more perfect!

There was no shortage of tears from Alex and Trinda. From the gifts they gave each other, to seeing his bride for the first time as she walked down the isle - they didn’t have dry eyes! Their ceremony was sweet and perfect. The reception was a blast and had great music played by Tracy from McClain’s Mobile DJ, and the food form Roundabout Catering was delicious (the salmon was mouth watering amazing)!

Thank you Alex and Trinda for trusting me to capture your amazing adventure! Congratulations on your marriage and your new home (they were signing offer papers as they were getting ready)! I cannot wait to capture you guys as you navigate this crazy thing called life!

I make no apologies for the amount of pictures I am about to share

Winter Engagement Session | Donner Lake | Reno - Lake Tahoe Engagement Photographer

Ahhhh! Winter shoots are awesome - even when it becomes white-out conditions and we have maybe a 15 minute break in the storm. We will rock it! Donner Lake is one of my favorite spots to shoot - it’s incredible through all the seasons - which makes it even more awesome. Donner Summit is breathtaking, but in the winter, it’s impossible to shoot out on. So we are left with the piers down at the lake. No complaints here though!

I’ve known Wil and Ashley for several years. In fact, Wil is my husband’s best friend! They met in Forest Service back in 2008 and worked on same crews/engines as each other for quite a few years. They are both giant boys and when you get them together, the goofiness is strong. So incredibly thankful to have him as a friend and even consider him family.

I am so excited about this wedding and so honored to be capturing (most) of their day! I have been told I have to put my camera away after the first dance. Think I can sneak in a couple shots after that? Challenge accepted guys. Haha.

Roughly 6 weeks and counting for wedding day for these two!! Lookout for that blog.

Wisconsin Summer Wedding | La Crosse, WI | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

When your best friend from high school gets married, there is no choice but to fly out to the great state of Wisconsin to shoot her wedding!

I’ve known Amy since freshman year of high school. We instantly clicked and we’re pretty inseparable - we got in trouble together (sorry Aileen), comforted each other through teenage heartache, and were basically Thing 1 and Thing 2 in MC’s class for two years in a row.

Like a lot of high school friendships, we lost contact after graduation. She started her family and I started mine. The joys of email and social media though - we always kept in contact. I cried when she emailed me about the passing of her dad (he was one amazing soul). We talked through messenger when we were having rough times in life. We always managed to keep in touch. Even if it was just a simple “Hey”!

When Amy met Chris, I watched from across the country as I saw my friend get her smile back (anyone who knows her - knows she is ALWAYS smiling). I saw how incredibly happy she was. My heart was so happy for her. So I was super stoked when she contacted me to let me know that her and Chris were getting married - I may have done a little dance. Don’t judge me.

I hadn’t seen Amy since our 10 year high school reunion - so it’d been a couple years. I won’t disclose how many. Haha. When I walked out of the airport, I was greeted by the biggest smile and the biggest hug ever. The drive back was filled with us taking non-stop (sorry Chris and Howie). No time had passed for us. It’s like we had just seen each other the week before.

Capturing this wedding was special for me. Not having her dad there to walk her down the isle or dance with her - I knew was weighing heavy on everyone’s heart. I am so glad her brother, Jason stepped in for those tasks. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room when it came to the brother/sister dance (step-in for the father/daughter dance). Jason chose to dance Amy to the song that their dad had sang to their mom on their wedding day. Thanks to the awesome Uncle who was able to pull the audio from that wedding video! It was so incredibly emotional and I’m pretty sure it’s the only time I’ve seen Jason be serious.

Thanks you Chris and Amy for letting me capture your day! I am so honored to have been able to come out there and capture your day. I love you guys and Amy I miss your face so so so much!

Summer Reno Wedding | Galena Fish Hatchery | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged a wedding! Joey and Kim’s wedding is the perfect one to put up here - so here it is! Enjoy!

This Reno summertime wedding was perfect in all aspects. The venue, Galena Fish Hatchery, is always an amazing location to shoot at. It’s nestled in the Galena Creek Park and surrounded by gorgeous trees and the light in the evening is ahhhh-mazing! For months, Kim had been talking about wanting a smoke bomb for photos, and we made it happen (without getting in trouble with the rangers). It was stunning and perfect in every way.

Okay - lets talk about Kim’s dress. Holy moly was it amazing and stunning! It was perfect for her and she looked like a goddess. I loved that her bridesmaids’ dresses were a similar cut, and again were absolutely perfect. The color of the dresses complimented the venue and backdrop perfectly. Lets not forget about the guys! Joey’s blue suit was perfect (FYI - blue suits are my new favorites to photograph for weddings).

Lets talk about the food…

STREET TACOS.
CHURROS.

That’s all that needs to be said about the food. Seriously the best churros I’ve ever had. I’m ruined - I want fresh churros all day every day - thanks a lot Kim!

So yeah, the wedding was perfect. It’s one of my favorites to date and I cannot wait for them to see their gallery! Thank you Joey and Kim for trusting me to capture your day. It was amazing and I am so honored to be “stuck” with you guys!

P.S. Joey wins 1st place for the “seeing his bride walk down the isle” emotions. Best. Ever.

End of Summer Engagement Session | Donner Lake | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

It’s engagement session season! I am starting my engagement sessions for my 2019 couples and I am soooo freaking excited for them! They’re all so amazing!

Heidiee and Emmil were an amazing couple to shoot and to kick off my fall season! They sure set the bar high. All we did was laugh and giggle - it was so much fun. We decided on the Donner Lake area for their setting because…well…why the heck not?! It’s a stunning view and there are so many gorgeous areas to shoot. They did an amazing job on their outfits! I loved the colors and coordination with each other and the backdrop. Great job guys!

Thanks guys for choosing me to capture your moments. I am so excited and cannot wait for your gorgeous June wedding!

Lakeside Proposal & Engagement Session | Donner Lake | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photograper

I looooove proposals!

Rob contacted me end of July about capturing his proposal to his girlfriend, Jhana. I of course was super stoked about it and agreed to capturing it. Rob was working with Lisa from L Squared Affairs to plan the perfect moment. Perfect it was!

Lisa snagged a dock on Donner Lake and decorated the end with flowers and wrote "One Day". Rob and Jhana started at the Little Truckee Creamery and made their way down the shore of Donner Lake. When they crossed paths with us, Rob asked if they could look at what we had been doing (we acted like we had just finished up a shoot). The moment Jhana saw what it said at the end of the dock, she knew something was up. She turned around to Rob down on one knee. We couldn't hear what he was saying, but I knew it was something perfect by the smile on Jhana's face.

She of course said YES!

The ring? Holy moly! Rob did so good on the ring! It's perfection and goes perfect with Jhana's outgoing bubbly personality.

We of course had to do a quick little engagement session - the light at Donner Lake with the smoke settling on the horizon was perfect. I had so much fun capturing Rob and Jhana's first special moments as an engaged couple.

Thank you Rob for trusting me to capture your special moment. It truly was perfect! I am so happy for you two and wish you many many years of laughter, love and happiness!

Happy wedding planning!

Vintage Bohemian Styled Wedding Shoot | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Holy heck!

What a whirlwind these past 10 days! I got back from Photo Rehab: North Carolina 2017 a couple days ago, and I am still trying to process everything I learned from all the amazing photographers that were there! So many amazing mentors and attendees! So stoked about the friendships that I created while there.

We got to hang out with Carrie and Nicole from Junebug Weddings and listen to them tell us how to get our wedding images published. So much awesome information! They put together an amazing stylized vintage bohemian wedding shoot. The props, floral and dress were to die for. Lets not mention the couple was stunning!

Soooo...

What is a stylized shoot??

A stylized shoot is a shoot that a photographer and vendors style to get a certain look wanted. Just because a photographer does stylized shoots doesn't mean they are any less of a photographer or lack experience (in some cases). A stylized shoot allows the photographer to create a look that they want to showcase in hopes to book more clients doing that look. It also allows them to fine-tune their techniques, learn new ones, etc. Think of it as them practicing for your big day!

Okay, now on to the pictures! First though, let me give a shoutout to the amazing vendors that made this shoot possible!
