Kate + Rob at Gatekeeper’s Museum

Kate and Rob are an amazing couple.  They were referred to me by their wonderful officiant Molly, and I’m so glad she introduced me to them!  They took wedding details to the next level: it took my second shooter and I over an hour to take pictures of all the thoughtful decorations, giveaways, and accents of their beautiful Lake Tahoe wedding.  What amazed me the most were the wooden birds that Kate’s dad hand carved himself!

As you can see, we had a perfect sky, and a gorgeous day.  Kate and Rob are an up-for-anything kind of couple… we snuck into the nearby dock to shoot their bridal portraits.  And one month later, I photographed Kate at her trash-the-dress session in the freezing ocean.  (Photos coming soon!)  Thank you again to Rob and Kate for having me shoot your wedding.  You’re a wonderful couple and I wish you all the best!

Nira + Eoin at Lair of the Golden Bear

The Lair of the Golden Bear has a special place in my heart.  When Nira & Eoin contacted me about shooting their wedding there, I was really excited.  Not only because its the place where I met my husband (also the caterer – Daniel Prelip!)…but they were getting married at my favorite location in the camp – Vista Lodge.  With its beautiful pine trees, granite boulders and mountain views it was a gorgeous location with endless photography opportunities.  This sweet couple lives in South Lake Tahoe so getting married outdoors was a must!  I enjoyed every part of this mountain wedding & if you look at the dance photos – looks like they did too!!

Elise + Geoff at Hans Fahden Winery

I was fortunate enough to meet Geoff and Elise through Geoff’s sister Katie (See Katie and Alex’s wedding here).  Their beautiful venue, Hans Fahden Winery, was one of the most unique venues I’ve ever seen in the Napa Valley.  With its immaculate gardens surrounding the ceremony spot, it made for endless photo possibilities.

Geoff and Elise are a sweet couple that made my job as simple as it could be!  This couple was a breeze to work with and I’m really happy that they chose me to shoot their wedding.  Congratulations!
