Edgewood Lake Tahoe wedding for Shannon and Zach

by Scott and Monique

Shannon and Zach were married at Edgewood at South Lake Tahoe on September 21, which also happened to be our 10 year anniversary! They had rented out one of the houses on the south side of Edgewood’s property, and both got ready there with all of their wedding party. The girls were running a bit late, so there wasn’t a ton of time for bridal portraits, but we were still able to get most of the portrait session with family and the wedding party done before the ceremony. Their adorable 1 year old daughter was a highlight of the ceremony, as the other flower girl pulled her down the aisle in a red wagon. Later in the evening, the sunset was one of those rare “light up the sky” fire orange sunsets, so we grabbed Shannon and Zach for a few more images out on the beach.

Flush mount album design for Kerry and Nick’s Lake Tahoe estate wedding

By Monique

Sometimes we like to share albums that we have made for our couples. This is a 15×10 flush mount album I designed for Kerry and Nick, who were married at a Lake Tahoe private estate overlooking the lake near Dollar Point. I included a few of our favorite page spreads in this post. To see more images from this wedding, head over to our main Lake Tahoe wedding photography website¬†and you will find more images from Kerry and Nick’s wedding there.

The flush mount album has thick 1/8 inch pages

PlumpJack Squaw Valley wedding for Nicole and Don

By Monique

Nicole and Don were married on a beautiful September Friday at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn. Nicole and Don are a local couple, in fact Don is in the Wolf Pack Hall of Fame, and is described as one of the greatest power hitters in the school’s baseball history. Nicole is a sweet, kind woman, a teacher in Carson City, and I admire how close she is with her family members. Her adorable nephew was the ring bearer. Their navy blue, tan and burnt orange colors were so pretty against the golden grasses in the valley. And they “hit it out of the ballpark” with their details, including 3 separate sweets tables: On one table were 3 flavors of cupcakes, topped with a small cake, then there was a loaded candy table, and a “Man Table” with baseball themed goodies, including popcorn, snack mix and cigars.

Lake Tahoe winter engagement session for Sandy and Joel

By Monique

I met up with Sandy and Joel in South Lake Tahoe for their engagement session on a chilly, snowy January morning. It was snowing on and off, and then for about 10 minutes or so, the sun came out, giving Lake Tahoe that beautiful deep blue color it is famous for. Sandy and Joel were happy to have the sun and the snow, and they even had a snow ball fight at the end of the session. They live in Texas and will be getting married in Mexico and May, so they wanted to do the winter engagement session to contrast with their warm beach wedding.

Gar Woods wedding at lake Tahoe for Brooke and Mark

By Monique

Brooke and Mark were married in September at Gar Woods at Lake Tahoe. The day started at Granlibakken in Tahoe City where I did a bit of getting ready coverage. They also had their first look there, and we did several portraits with the wedding party there before heading over to the pier at Gar Woods for more family portraits before the ceremony. The dance floor at Brooke and Mark’s wedding was one of the most packed I have seen in quite a while, providing for great dance party images.
