Wedding

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.

Boho Styled Wedding | Studio Fourteen | #communityovercompetition | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Who’s seen the hashtags #communityovercompetion or #collaborateovercompetition? Have you ever wondered what they mean? What’s the rage all about?

Let me tell you a little story…

I started this photography adventure in 2012 before Facebook got big with the communities and groups. When creatives kind of stuck to themselves, because heaven forbid a newbie ask them questions. Before it was cool to hang out with other creatives because apparently we may poach others’ clients, locations or trade secrets.

Being a community of creatives just wasn’t the thing.

Fast forward to 2015 when The Rising Tide Society started, and really started taking off in 2016 with the motto “community over competition”. What did it mean? Why were they encouraging creatives to hang out with each other? Aren’t we each others’ competition?

The answer? Yes we are but we are all our own creative individual. Our goal is to attract our ideal client. Jane’s ideal client is different than Joe’s ideal client. We all have our own ways of doing things - camera settings, posing, editing, customer service, etc.

So what does someone gain from mingling with other creatives?

Ummm…SO.MUCH. There is nothing better than networking. Having a group of creatives to lean on. Have someone inquiring about a wedding date you already have booked? Refer them to a trusted fellow creative friend! Client asking who you would recommend for floral for their wedding? You know just the person!

THAT is #communityovercompetition. Working with fellow creatives. Learning from them. Leaning on them.

So what’s #collaborateovercompetiton? Well, it’s when a group of creatives work together and create a vision. It means multiple photographers working together and creating badass photos. Each one creating their own unique frozen moment. Each one’s frozen moment looks different than the others - even though they were there shooting, posing and creating at the exact same time.

So what’s the whole point of this blog? Well, it’s an intro into the photos I’m going to share - lol. Recently, I participated in my first local photographer meetup. A badass local photographer, Casey Simon, has been organizing these Reno Photo Meetups for a couple months now, and I finally went to one! The theme was an in-studio boho styled wedding at Studio Fourteen - a space for fellow creatives to come together and create shit.

…and create we did!

It was magical watching other photographers pose, talk to each other, share IG handles, laugh when we realize that we’re already following each other, etc. I learned so much just by watching others - cues, lighting, poses, and things that happen when you think outside the box.

We all shot the same thing, but seeing other’s photos, we all created something different. We all brought our own unique style to the same thing.

That is #collaborateovercompetition

Thank you Casey and all the amazing vendors who contributed to this photo meetup! I enjoyed meeting and putting faces to folks I follow on IG. It was a blast and I cannot wait to go to the next one!

Quick shoutout to all the amazing vendors…

Coordinator: Casey Simon
Floral: nvlwood

Now to the amazing couple!

Oh, and I can’t forget Nova - the adorable pup who stole the show and everyone’s hearts.

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

Classic Fall Wedding | St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Last wedding of 2018 did not disappoint!

I met Gregory and Kristy at a My Wedding Library Wedding Fair. They were actually there as a vendor, Tahoe Slow Motion Booth, and were across the room from my booth. Seriously check out their booth - it’s so much fun! They came over and talked to me and Gregory instantly started complimenting my editing tones. At that point I had no idea he was into video. Kristy was the sweetest and they setup a time to come chat with me.

At their pre-consult we laughed a lot and I think it was my longest pre-consults. It was so much fun getting to know them and find out their story (Kristy was Gregory’s landlord - great story). They love to travel and they gave me some travel pointers as my husband and I were in the beginning stages of planning a trip. I was so stoked when they decided to book me for their day!

Their October wedding was beyond perfect! The weather was amazing and we luckily didn’t have any of the crazy Tahoe wind. Gregory and Kristy got married at St. Francis of Assisi in Incline Village, NV. I have shot at this church before, and it’s gorgeous. It has a wall of windows behind the alter that overlooks the amazing trees of Tahoe. Father Bill is a crack up, too. As I was shooting down the isle trying to be as inconspicuous and ninja like as possible, he came down from the alter and tapped me on the shoulder, and goes “get in the middle there, get the good shot”. I had a good chuckle.

The ceremony was a classic Catholic ceremony. It was gorgeous and so full of love. What I loved most about the ceremony is hearing the couples who have been married for awhile give advice to the couple. It’s always nice to hear what has worked for those with 20+ years under their belt.

After the ceremony, Kristy asked that we go to Sand Harbor for some formal photos. I of course couldn’t turn that request down! It was gorgeous out on the rocks and the water was so calm. It was the perfect setting for these twos’ formal photos.

The reception was in Gardnerville at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center. What a great location for a reception. We were able to get all the group shots out back and then go inside and party. The reception was a blast, and I am super stoked about the garter toss. One of the groomsmen dressed up in an amazing dress (that looked like it was from the 80’s), the groom was blindfolded, and the groomsmen ran out and switched spots with Kristy. It was so funny to watch. Hahaha.

Thank you Gregory and Kristy for trusting me to capture your special day! I had such a blast and so thankful to have met you guys! Cheers to many years ahead of you!

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.

Reno Spring Wedding | Tannenbaum Event Center | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

I met Lauren and Vince over a year ago at a My Wedding Library Wedding Fair, and they also so happened to win the prize for the drawing I had going on at the wedding fair. When I met with them for their wedding consult, we laughed the whole time. It was friendship at first sight! They are the sweetest and most kind hearted people I have ever met. Vince absolutely adores Lauren and their daughter Maddy. The way Vince looks at Lauren - melts your heart!

Vince and Lauren had a gorgeous April wedding at Tannenbaum Event Center - it was gorgeous! A view overlooking Washoe Valley, and it was a blue sky day (we all know in Reno, April can be a little touchy). Their wedding was gorgeous and perfect. There were so many tears (including from me). They know each other so well, and it was apparent through the whole day. Between baseball tickets and Disney Pixar UP scrapbook - there was a lot of emotions and it was so lovely.

Thank you Vince and Lauren for letting me capture your special day! It has been such a joy to get to know you guys over this last year, and am so thankful to be able to call you friends!

Little shoutout to some vendor rockstars! Thank you all who made this wedding ahhh-mazing!

South Lake Tahoe Fall Wedding | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

I love me a small intimate wedding ceremony under the trees!

That is exactly how Nick and Emily decided to get married - with their closest family and friends watching them under the fall trees in South Lake Tahoe at a private residence with lake access. Then a couple days later celebrated with their extended friends and family at the Brewery Arts Center in Carson City, NV. What a blast it was! There was LOTS of dancing, laughing, and shots off the shot-ski! It was a good time!

I met Emily at the My Wedding Library Bridal Fair in 2016 and we instantly clicked! She booked me for a boudoir (which turned out amazingggg), and then got her fiancé to agree to book me for their wedding - at this time he didn't know she had already come to be for boudoir and actually knew me! It was all such a blast. We had beautiful skies for their October Fall ceremony in South Lake Tahoe, and the venue for the reception was so cool!

Thank you Nick and Emily for trusting in me to capture your special day(s). Wishing you guys many years of happiness!

Elegant South Lake Tahoe Wedding | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

I had the pleasure of second shooting for Kara Nixon Photography for Rendon and Lexi's Lake Tahoe wedding, and I am so glad I did! It was so much fun, everything was stunning, and it was a beautiful day in South Lake Tahoe.

I got to go hang out with the guys while Kara covered the time with the girls (I did get to snag a couple shots of the dress though thank goodness - because it's so gorgeous). When I arrived to the reception site, Revive Coffee and Wine, I walked into an intense game of chess going on between two groomsmen. It had apparently been going on for awhile. I don't understand chess, but the tension was pretty intense. It was quite comical to watch. I managed to pull the two groomsmen away from their game to snag some photos out in the gorgeous garden at Revive. I was excited to learn that the groom was the oldest of four boys. I feel being a boy mom has prepared me to deal with the shinanegans that always happens with the groomsmen. We made photos quick because I know there was a chess game that needed to be finished (after another 40 minutes, I believe it finally ended in a stale mate - whatever that means).

So the reception - lets talk about that. Holy cow. S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G. That's all I can say. The tent had a clear top, lights hanging and not one but  two chandeliers! The table setups were ahh-mazing and to die for. Such an amazing combination of greenery, wood tones, candles and elegant. Plus there was eucalyptus - so it smelled amazing, too!

The ceremony took place at Regan Beach in South Lake Tahoe. We were under trees on a small hill that overlooked Lake Tahoe - it was glorious. Rendon and Lexi wrote letters to each other, and as the officiant was telling each one about the other's letter to them - you could tell how much they love and adore each other. There was so much love surrounding us all day - it was incredible.

We ended the night with a full dance floor and some fun sing-alongs! It was a good way to end a perfect day.

Thank you Kara for letting be your second shooter - it was so much fun! You're awesome and I hope we work together again!

:)

Indiana Fall Wedding | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

My cousin got married!

I was so stoked when my cousin and his then fiancé asked me to capture their wedding. I of course said yes and couldn't countdown fast enough. In all honesty though, it was here before we knew it, and man is wonderful!

Shane and Kathy chose to get married at The Righteous Oaks Historic Ballroom, and historic little church located in the middle of Wilkinson, IN. With it being November in Indiana, and not much foliage on the venue grounds - I had to go on the hunt for a perfect backdrop for their formal photos. As a photographer, I will do what it takes to get the perfect photos for my couples. If that means knocking on a stranger's door to ask if I can use their backyard/acreage for some shots, then so be it.

Yes. I did knock on a stranger's door and they said YES!

It couldn't have been more perfect! I am so happy that these two trusted me with their day! I cannot wait to edit more of their wedding photos, but for now - here's just a little peek into their special day!
