Lake Tahoe Wedding - Stephanie and Eugene

Stephanie and Eugene were married on the banks of Lake Tahoe at the Zephyr Cove Resort. When Stephanie told me they were getting married in Lake Tahoe, I think I was as excited as she was! It's one of my favorite places in the world...the water, streams and mountains are what my dreams are made of.

I first met Stephanie at the Eye and Laser Center in 2005?, where I was doing some consulting work. She asked me to do their holiday photos back in 2008 (they are the first card example in the blog post) and this July I did their engagement session in Flagstaff. Each session was so much of fun. This couple not only make each other laugh, but make everyone else giggle as well. Their happiness and love for one another is infectious.

I was so excited to be able to go to Lake Tahoe for their wedding! Here are a few of my favorites, but you can see more on my Facebook account.

Stephanie's band had yellow diamonds. I've never seen that before; I thought that was really beautiful!

I LOVE these shoes! Kristen and I must have taken 50 photos of the shoes alone. Fancy shoes on a wedding day are fabulous!

Their dog, Rosco, was in the wedding. He did really well! My dogs would have taken off after a bird:) He looks so handsome in his bowtie!

I loved the grass field right behind the tented reception. It was perfect for their photos after the ceremony! We had to climb a couple of fences to get into the grass, but I feel like it was worth it.

The cake was gorgeous! I loved the sugar flowers!

Stephanie was a stunning bride, she looked like she walked right out of a bridal magazine!

This couple is the sweetest, and are so much in love. We were all crying during the ceremony. I remember looking over at my assistant, and she was even wiping a tear off her face.

This sunset was so amazing! I love the rocks! We sprinted to this area to get here before sunset. Stephanie beat me there, wearing a wedding dress and high heels. That girl is fast! :) I tried to take a photo of us sprinting, but it was blurry...I was more concerned with not falling down while I was running I suppose.

Thank you to my wonderful assistant, Kristen Gruber, for making the trip with me. These images would not be possible if not for her hauling around most of my equipment for the day, holding the remote lights, and of course, shooting her own great images. Thank you!

Congrats Stephanie and Eugene! Thank you for having us as your photographers! I can't wait to do those newborn pressure...:) !!

Snowbowl Resort Wedding - Mairen and Jason

I'll admit, I've let my blogging fall to the side. But, I promise to get caught up! Below is a beautiful wedding at Snowbowl Lodge of the sweet Mairen and Jason. When I first met with this couple, I absolutely fell in love with them. I remember going home and telling my husband, "oh, I hope they hire me, they were the sweetest!". Not only them, but I also fell in love with their families. Special thanks to my fabulous assistant photographer, Melissa Keniski, who drove up from Phoenix to help me out!

Mairen and Jason, thank you so much for having me as your photographer! I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
