Thirteen years ago I slung a camera strap around my neck, and I’ve been capturing moments and memories that will be cherished for generations to come ever since. My goal? Put you at ease in front of the camera and document what matters and giving you something timeless in a fleeting world.

Truckee, CA Engagement Session + Guest Book

Filed in: Couples, Engagement

Lake Tahoe Engagement Session

One piece of local language I’ve learned in Tahoe is that the term “weather” means: anything other than sunshine. “Looks like we’re getting weather” sounded funny to me since there was no need to preface it with “rainy” or “bad” or “windy,” it was simply understood it was not sunny and perfect as usual. This engagement session took place on a day weather rolled in.

The radar showed some pretty decent storm clouds, the wind was questionable and as super excited as we all were to shoot, we were secretly biting our lip wondering if rescheduling is inevitable.

A bright side to my out of town clients only being in town for the weekend is that 99.9% of the time, we just go for it regardless since rescheduling could mean weeks or months before they get to visit again. Taylor and Don had some specific spots in mind and our Plan B was plenty of covered settings at the Lodge at Tahoe Donner and in downtown Truckee, so we knew we’d get something regardless. I’m a big fan of days like this because it can yield some of the most beautiful skies and buttery lighting. Give me weather days every day!

Rather than a regular post, here’s the spreads that were designed for their engagement album/ guest book. I did a first design using my favorite images and then Taylor and Don added favorites and edited out as needed for the next round. Voila!

Here is the collection of images to enjoy in their album as the countdown begins to their summer 2020 wedding!
