Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure. Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour yourself another cup. Rose and fireflies dancing in the spiderwebs. Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to.

Had the best time with Keenan and Tasha at their engagement shoot in South Lake Tahoe. Between the mullet, the dress, the sunset, and the coors…we had a pretty freakin’ good time. Peep the middle of the gallery to see my crazy kid photo bomb some of their pics.

“Probably the prettiest cliffside restaurant and wedding venue with the most epic backdrop, to finally watch them becoming Mr. and Mrs!!!!! UGH!!! What a freakin’ amazing day. It started by having Karen and all her girlies get ready at The Cape Hotel (sign me up for a months staycation here please). The architecture of this building sent me soaring when I got to take Karen’s dress photos, and getting ready pictures on their private terrace with their private pool and epic view in the background…”

“Getting to meet up with them at Auto Camp Yosemite National Park in October of last year, was a true blessing that I would go back and repeat over and over again if I could. We took pictures, but we talked, and we talked for hours into the night, around the fire, with fancy beers in our hands. It was truly an uplifting day, I mean honestly any day you spend with these two is uplifting and encouraging. I’m nothing short of blessed to know these two, and call them my friends…”

“These two have been together for EIGHT YEARS now, and are finally getting married this summer!!! I’ve known these two for their entire relationship, as we have all basically grown up together through middle school and high school. Watching them go to all our proms, and homecomings, football games, musicals, etc…it is SO amazing now to see where they’ve gotten even after being long distance through college…”
