Lake Tahoe Engagement Session | North Lake Tahoe | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

It’s engagement and wedding season! Man it’s a busy year over here for Meggin Linquist Photography, but I am loving every minute of it! I have so many amazing couples for 2019 and 2020 is shaping up to be pretty amazing, too! Can’t wait for everyone’s adventure!

I met Amanda at one of the My Wedding Library bridal fairs. She’s getting married on the East Coast, but wanted to capture the beauty of Lake Tahoe for her engagement session. So of course we made that happen! We chose North Lake Tahoe to capture her and Justin. We laughed. A lot. Justin even scored a beer from some on-lookers on the beach (go Justin!). Amanda’s dress was amazing, and matched the flamingos on Justin’s shirt. Side note: I welcome flamingo shirts from here on out!

Thank you Amanda and Justin for trusting me with your engagement session! It was a rad adventure and I am in love with your photos! Happy wedding vibes being sent your way!

Same Sex Spring Garden Wedding | Cottonwood Cottage, Genoa | Reno - Lake Tahoe Same Sex Wedding Photographer

Happy Pride Month!

This is perfect timing for Roza and Jessica’s blog of their wedding last month at the Cottonwood Cottage in Genoa, NV. What a gorgeous May day we had! It was the perfect Spring weather for a wedding. I had never been to the Cottonwood Cottage, but man it’s the cutest little venue. It was green and vibrant with Spring. Jessica and Roza’s touch of flowers throughout their center pieces and lining their aisle was perfect for the setting.

They had a Buddhist ceremony and with that had the traditional tea ceremony with their families joining them at the alter. Their ceremony was done by Rev. Matthew Fisher and Rev. Shelly Fisher from the Reno Buddhist Center.

Thank you Jessica and Roza for trusting me to capture your day! It was an amazing wonderful day, and I cannot wait to see your new chapter of life unfold! Wishing you many many years of happiness and love!

————————————————————

Side Note: When Jessica and Roza were looking for a wedding photographer, they had a such a difficult time finding someone who had it on their website that they are same sex couple friendly. Meggin Linquist Photography is a LGBTQ+ friendly photographer. Your day is just as special as everyone’s day, and it should be captured in all the beauty that it is!

Classic Spring Wedding | The Flower Farm Inn | Northern California Wedding Photographer

When friends get married and ask you to photograph their adventure. Ummm…you don’t have to ask me twice! Of course Wil and Ashley put some stipulations - like I had to put the camera down after the first dance. They even went as far as threatening to look it up so I couldn’t sneak it.

I’ve known Wil for about 9ish years. He worked with my husband as a Wildland Firefighter. Those two became two peas in a pod, and is seriously nothing but goofiness when they’re together. When we made the move to Reno, my husband had to stay in California due to work - he of course roommated it up with Wil. Then a couple years later, Wil was in the Reno area for work - so of course it was his turn to roommate it up at our house. It was good times and never a dull moment for three months. I know my husband’s heart was a little sad when Wil’s detail job ended and he went back to So California.

I met Ashley the first New Year’s her and Wil were dating. I knew she was perfect for him instantly, and I knew he had fallen hard for her when we walked out of Circus Circus with I believe two garbage bags of stuffed animals he won her. She was super giddy about it, too. It was pretty freaking adorable!

Wil and Ashley got hitched at The Flower Inn in Loomis, CA. When I looked up the venue, I was so excited to shoot there! It’s gorgeous and in the Spring time, it’s freaking GLORIOUS. There were fluffy chickens running around! Their day was pure perfection. The weather cooperated, and they were surrounded by friends and family. Only downfall is the allergies I came home with, but 10/10 I’d do it all over again!

Thank you Wil and Ashley for trusting me with your adventure. I love you guys and am so honored that I got to capture your moments. Whether it’s a blizzard, rain or shine - I will make the magic happen! Wishing you many many years of happiness, lots of pizza and I cannot wait to see your family grow.

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.

Snowy Winter Couple Session | Tahoe Meadows | Reno - Lake Tahoe Photographer

We’ve been buried here in Northern Nevada/Northern California this winter! This didn’t stop Pete and Jessica from making their way from the Sacramento area up to Tahoe for a snow shoot with their pup Sierra (FYI - if you have a puppy please bring them with). This was Sierra’s first snow adventure and she did amazing - other then being a little unsure about sitting in it. Thank you Pete and Jessica for making the trek! It meant so much to me to capture you guys and puppy Sierra!

Snowy winter sessions are some of my favs. Even though it’s cold as heck, they always turn out amazing - especially when you have the most gorgeous golden light. Tahoe is truly a glorious place year round. It’s gorgeous all the time, and perfect for sessions. Let me know if you want to schedule a winter shoot - lets go have some fun in the snow! Contact me today for your session!

Snowy Winter Family Session | Reno - Lake Tahoe Family Photographer

They're back for their 3rd year in a row! Alex and Haley were my very first Reno clients in 2014. Haley found me on one of the Facebook sale sites, asking for recommendations on local photographers for a first wedding anniversary shoot. I was thrilled when she contacted me, and well, the rest is history. I've watched their little family of two into three, and I was super giddy about this shoot!

We weren't expecting so much snow when we decided on the location last month. Then again, we should have known anything was possible since we live in Reno, NV! It was perfect though - maybe a little cold - but it was perfect. I mean, hot chocolate to finish the session off? Yes please! Little E did amazing (even through the frozen hands). Good thing he had mom there to warm them up when he needed it!

Thank you Haley and Alex for trusting me once again to capture your family. It's always a joy working with you, and I cannot wait for the years to come!

:)

Wooded Family Session | Lake McCumber | Reno - Lake Tahoe Family Photographer

I've known this gal since we were pre-teens! I love that we have become closer over the past two years after loosing slight touch through high school and into our 20's! She's an amazing woman, mom, and soul. Lets not mention the 3 boys thing - I feel for her and understand her life of boy chaos! It's lovely chaotic life though!

I wanted a forest backdrop for this year's family session, so we decided to take a little drive to my old stomping ground when I was kid/teenager, gorgeous Lake McCumber Lake in Shingletown, CA. It was such a beautiful day and the fresh forest air was amazing. I can definitely appreciate the beauty now that I am older - I sure didn't when I was kid (I kinda hated living in BFE).

These three boys are an amazing trio! So much love for their mama and of course, a lot of sas from the baby of the family. He never fails to make me laugh. I cannot wait to photograph this family more over the years and watch these young guys grow into amazing men!

Thank you Vanea for letting me capture your little family! Next time we need to set some time aside for wine and girl talk!

Lake Themed Wedding | North Tahoe Event Center | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Oh.My.Goodness.

Jason and Brittany's lake themed wedding at the North Tahoe Event Center was stunning and beyond amazing. Their love for Lake Tahoe was reflected throughout their wedding day - from getting married right on the beach to the guest's tables being labeled after Lake Tahoe beaches, and they asked their guests to "find their beach" (aka table) on the seat assignment board that had a cutout of Lake Tahoe (made by the groom himself - he made just about all the wooded decor items). It was all so stunning and perfect.

Lets talk about the love Jason and Brittany have for each other. It's amazing. You can tell they absolutely adore each other, and I could see that when I met with them for their pre-consult. They are both down to earth, and just a riot to sit and talk to. After 10 years together, they finally decided to tie the knot, and in my opinion, it was worth the wait!

Thank you Jason and Brittany for allowing me to capture your special day. You guys are an amazing couple, and the love you have for each other is incredible. Here's to many more decades of laughs, jokes, and happiness.

 

Thank you for all the vendors for their amazing work!
