a little more about me 5.2.15  
I photograph people.
I have captured more then 300 weddings over the years and am passionate about
making beautiful images of people in LOVE.
I am a Lake Tahoe based wedding photographer who has been so very fortunate to be making a living with my cameras
since 2000. I use Film and Digital formats to best document every details, real emotion,
relationships, smiling faces and action during your wedding day.
I will not direct the flow of your day, make you slow down so I can get the shot
I will not ask you to say cheese!
Yes I will capture portraits, the process
is fluid, casual and if you trust me, it will be beautiful:)I search for light, beauty.
Light that falls just right, brightens, puts a mood on things.
My images are real life with a little punch. No gimmicks. I call it:

FUN + FRESH + VIBRANT fashion documentary editorial style with a pinch of Fine Art.

Why I use film you ask?
I love the texture, dimension and feel it gives my images. The format has survived the test
of time, remember 8 track, VHS?
My images have been featured in a multiple of magazines and blogs such as Style Me pretty,
the Knot, Wedding Bells.... I am a member of WPPI, PPA, WPJA and have current insurance.
I would be truly honored to be part of your day xo

Why is CUSTOM photography so expensive? 12.25.15  
I have been seeing some blurbs kind of like this one for awhile on professional photographer's sites. With more people having access to better cameras yes they can get a good one here and there but being consistent day in day out, different conditions and subjects makes a huge difference in the experience. I have been in business for 11 years now and just LOVE what I do, yes I use different mediums, shoot film and digital. Film for me is still some of my preferences once I get my images back from the lab:)
You should not compromise when looking for a professional, specially when covering a wedding! It happens once!

". you are not just paying your photographer for one hour shoot time. I put in many hours on every session. This includes preparation, drive time, shooting time, file handling, sorting images, custom editing and post processing of images, uploading , burning cdís, packaging etc....

.professional equipment is expensive. You have to upgrade more then film based gear. Cameras, lenses, computers, software, hardware, props etc...
These are not one time purchases and have to be replaced, upgraded often...

.Running a legitimate business is costly. There are taxes, accountant fees, bookkeeper fees, assistant fees, office fees, studio fees, permits, internet fees, blog and website fees etc...

.Not all photographer are the same. Many have fancy cameras but not really understand photography or know how to custom edit. Not every photographer is an artist, we are different people, different aesthetics, understanding of light, backgrounds, eye for art, eye for flattering images, experience etc... letís just say you get what you pay for!"

Every posts is best with photos in it! so here's Donner Lake just last month! huge winter out here, maybe more snow today. Pretty please we need the sun!

Courtney + Kim | Thunderbird Lodge intimate wedding 12.10.15  
I loved capturing this intimate Thunderbird Lodge wedding. These ladies were not only surrounded by the beauty of Lake Tahoe and all the history this site has. In my 15 years capturing weddings at the Thunderbird Lodge it was the first time I actually got to go on a tour and get all the "dirt" on George Whittel and how this property came about. Don't get me wrong I have had the pleasure to ride on the Thunderbird woody speed boat! Wishing the best to these two ladies who have been together for a long time and now finally gets to tie the knot "officially".

location:: Thunderbird Lodge

Whittles game room where he entertained the likes of Frank Sinatra, political figures and more.... His pet was a lion and he would take him in the convertible around town!
