Laura and Jim | Reno, Nevada Wedding

Once upon a time, there were two people who met at a costume party in Reno, Nevada. They got engaged, and then, on a beautiful day in August, were married. I was lucky enough to be the photographer for their day.

Wedding Wednesday | Behind The Scenes

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetTwo weekends ago I found myself shooting at the most amazing place. I was asked to second shoot a wedding outside of Denver, Colorado.  As we drove into the venue, I looked at the other photographer with my mouth wide open, this is where I get to work today? Rolling hills, big red barns, a camel or two, not to mention a most beautiful and fun bride and groom.FIP (1 of 3)-3Have you ever wondered what your wedding photographer(s) do to get ready for your big day? I mean, other than feed a camel named Chewie and ooh-ahh at the big fluffy clouds in the sky. They set each other up in spots where they want to pose you and your amazing bridal party and take tests shots.

FIP (1 of 2)-2Holly is pretty much beautiful. Strike that, she is hands down gorgeous. She should be in-front of the camera, not hiding behind it… but then again, she has a mean eye and mad camera skills, so her clients might not like reading that. FIP (2 of 2)-2Holly, it was SUCH an honor to join you at this absolutely stunning wedding. I can’t wait to get through all the images we took and see them together in one place. I couldn’t have asked for a better co-worker or a more perfect location (unless of course, we would have moved the party to the Ren-fest, per our sandwich artist’s suggestions). Let’s do it all again real soon, because darn it, it was awesome.

Wedding Wednesday |Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Some of my favorite moments at weddings are during the reception. The vows have been shared, the kiss has sealed the deal, and now it’s time for the celebration! This particular wedding had such a great mix of young and old enjoying the day. As I watched these little dudes during the party, I couldn’t help but giggle. I could see their grownup versions hanging out and conspiring the next move on the dance floor.

Wedding Wednesday – On Film

I almost always make a point to shoot a few images on film during my photo sessions. Weddings are no different, as a matter of fact, the magic of the day almost gauntness that I get something that instantly becomes a favorite.

Here are a couple of Polaroid photographs from last season’s weddings. Enjoy!
