We don’t do too many high school senior portrait sessions, but it sure is fun when we do. I met up with Kassidy and her mom and grandma a few weeks back in Midtown to start the session with a few of her favorite murals. Then we went over to Mayberry Park to finish the session along the river. If you haven’t had a chance to check out some of the murals in Midtown, I highly recommend Art Spot Reno‘s mural tour! In, fact there is a tour coming up this Saturday.

By Scott,

It feels like it has been winter forever up here at Lake Tahoe, with storm after storm and over 50 feet of snow piled up on the mountains, so when I hunker down and start prepping blog posts from some of my recent weddings, it feels like I shot these ages ago. It has actually only been a few months, October, 2016 to be exact. Heather and James are a great couple with a great history. They live in Australia, and his mates and relatives all made the long journey for the occasion. All of our coordination for the wedding was done online and I met them for the first time the day of their ceremony and in no time at all we were on a roll. The wedding was held at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn, always a great venue.

Our new Priscilla Foster Handmade album just arrived and we can’t wait to show it off to our clients! The album is 10×10 in size, and has a beautiful gray linen cover. The presentation of a Priscilla Foster album reflects the boutique quality and design. We decided to use a fall wedding to show off the bright yellows of the leaves, and to show our clients how amazing a wedding in the rain can be! Just a bit more about the couple, AJ and Kim: They were totally prepared for the rainy weather and arrived to Squaw Valley from New York with rain boots, umbrellas and shalls. They really wanted to get outside for their portraits no matter what, and the rain and wind came and went through out their pre ceremony portrait session. Right as we were about finishing up in the meadow, a downpour started and never stopped for the rest of the day. Their ceremony was moved inside, but still had a nice view out the tall glass windows of the surrounding mountains. At one point during the reception, we brought them outside to get a few more night time shots with the rain falling hard all around them. And then their guests even ventured out for a bit of dancing in the rain too. Our cameras were pretty soaked after the last outing in the rain, but we had plenty of towels waiting for us to dry them off and continue on. The weather in Tahoe can definitely create challenges, but we love it, and it becomes an unforgettable experince and part of the wedding day story for the couple!

Taylor and Kody were married at the Twenty Mile House in Old Cormberg, California, near the town of Quincy. I love this venue with the historic main house and the general store. There are several cabins for some of the guests to stay in, a creek, a river, train tracks, and the solitude of being almost out in the middle of nowhere. Taylor and Kody and their adorable daughter were very easy going and really just wanted to experience their day as it unfolded, so there were not a lot of formal portraits. The afternoon was relaxed, with the guests enjoying the outdoor setting on the lawn and patio of the general store.

When doing ring details, it is fun to find a few different backdrops for the rings!
