Marshall and Tracey came all the way from Texas to get married at Lake Tahoe. They told me on our first phone call that it was just going to be the two of them, they weren’t sure where they wanted to get married, and they had heard that I could also do the ceremony.
Yes, it’s all true. I do sometimes officiate at weddings as well as do the photography. And no, I would not be so tacky as to interrupt the ceremony to grab my camera and take photos! I bring along a second shooter to take those photos. I’m licensed in both California and Nevada, and I customize each ceremony to fit the bride and groom.
Needless to say, by the time we got done talking about the location (they eventually settled on Logan Shoals Vista Point), the ceremony (they wanted very traditional and ended up writing much of their own vows) and what their needs and requests were for the photography, we were quite comfortable with one another.
My good friend and hairdresser, Annette (http://www.annettesbrides.com/) not only referred this wedding to me, but did Tracey’s hair and makeup. My second shooter on this beautiful day was Lora Menchel.
Here’s some of my favorite photos:
