Mt. Rose Meadows Pregnancy Announcement | Reno - Lake Tahoe Photographer

Ekkkkkkk! One of my besties (and studio mate) is having a baby! Wait, let me rephrase that...

...she's having babies!!! :)

Careful about cracking jokes about twins - because it just may be true! I am so over the moon happy for Matt and Jentry and their growing family! They're about to embark on an amazing journey two babies and I cannot wait to snuggle these little babes!

We chose to do their announcement session at the Mt. Rose Meadows. The light was amazing an the mosquitos were in full force - but it was totally worth the 100 mosquito bites I have now! They are big campers and wanted to incorporate the camping theme some how - he little blue camping cups were perfect for this!

Thank you Matt and Jentry for letting me capture your special announcement! I can't wait to capture you over the next couple months as your belly grows! You better get used to being in front of the camera!

Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe Proposal | Reno - Lake Tahoe Photographer

I don't think this proposal could have been more gorgeous! Kevin did an amazing job in planning his proposal to Morgan!

The location. The lighting. The couple.

All the heart eyes over here! Kevin contacted me about doing a proposal at the end of August or beginning of September. He was planning a weekend away to Tahoe with his now fiancé, Morgan. He couldn't wait though, and he emailed me asking if we could do it sooner. Of course I could!

We planned on doing it at Emerald Bay, and oh boy I am sure glad we did! It was absolutely beautiful, and we had a break from the madness of tourists and were able to get a non-occupied part of the vista point. It was stunning. The love and emotions between Kevin and Morgan is amazing. You can feel how much they love each other, and how incredibly happy Morgan was to say yes!

Thank you Kevin for trusting me in capturing your special moment! It was amazing and I wish you guys a lifetime of happiness, and hope you have an amazing time planning your special day!

:)

Lake Tahoe Winter Wedding | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

I have been DYING to blog this wedding since February! I've been saving it though for the new website though. So since it's here - that means I have FINALLY rolled out not only the new website but the re-branding! Yay me! It's been a long 6 months needless to say.

Enough about that - onto this wedding at Edgewood Tahoe in Lake Tahoe, NV with the awesome Meg Marvin Photography this past snowy February. What a day! It began with not thinking I'd even be able to get up to South Lake Tahoe because Reno had such a crazy snow storm happening! All was clear in Tahoe though (thank goodness) and I made it thanks to the husband and his driving skills!

Scott and Shanell were a dream couple! They have so much love for each other and that is always a huge plus for the photographers - makes our job pretty dang easy. Everything was perfect and her bouquet was to die for with it's yummy greens, beautiful maroon flowers, and of course pinecones! It was perfect for their lakeside winter wedding!

Now lets talk about her dress...

ALL. THE. HEART. EYES.

It was stunning and perfect for the wintery vintage feel of the entire wedding, and paired perfectly with the cowgirl boots Shanell. I don't think it could have been more perfect!

I am so thrilled I was able to help capture their day and I wish them a lifetime of love, happiness, laughs, and lots of adventures!

Surprise Backyard Wedding | Reno - Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

SURPRISE!

That is exactly what friends and family of Dan and Brittani got when they arrived to their home for a birthday shin-dig for Brittani. Only a few were in on the secret (including me) and let me tell you - best time ever! When I met with Dan and Brittani for their pre-consult and they told me that there was a little catch with their wedding, and then let me in on the secret - I was totally in love with their plan. My key goal was to capture the guests reactions as they came in and realized what they were really there for. When we were doing their planning appointment, the plan was for me to arrive before the guests. They had asked some family to arrive a little earlier than others (moms, dads, sisters, etc.). I asked Brittani "what if your mom gets there super early"? She didn't think it would be an issue...

I'll just laugh at my "oh crap" reaction when I walked up to the front door and squeezed past the group of people standing outside looking a little puzzled and reading the card that was left for them on the door. When it hit me that it was Brittani's mom and dad- myself and my second scrambled for our cameras - this was the reaction we couldn't miss capturing.

They met while attending UNR and from I can tell and heard from friends and family - have been pretty inseparable since. They met at the old Getchell Library at University of Nevada Reno. Since the library and UNR is such a special place to them and them becoming a couple, they wanted incorporate it some how. Unfortunately, the old library has since been demolished and rebuilt - so we had to make due with doing their first look by the new library. We chose to do their formal photos at UNR since it was where it all began for them! It was absolutely gorgeous and couldn't have been more perfect for their story!

Thank you Dan and Brittani for letting me capture your amazing day! It was truly perfect and I am so glad I was able to be there to laugh with you. You guys are a beautiful couple and I wish you many many years (on-top of the many years you already have).

Now for some pictures. I make no apologies for the amount that I am about to share. ;)
