WHAT TO BRING:

– Pack for the cold weather, gloves, jackets, head warmers, boots, etc.
– We will probably have snow, but no guarantees. The roads are always plowed from Reno to Tahoe
– You may need to rent a AWD or 4WD to feel safe if you’re flying in.
– A small backpack with food, water, some clothes, and space for a few lenses and camera.
– Bring money to enjoy Tahoe. The Hotel has so many options, Spa, a nice heated pool and hot tub.
– Bring your photography gear, just minimal, wide and portrait lenses are good.
– You will have an assignment after booking, so you will have time to prepare on what to bring.
– Bring shorts for swimming in the hotel pool
– Your computer for editing your images (if you can)
– That’s it for now. I may think of things later.

Griffith Woods, Santa Rosa, Ca.
Chris and Rachel’s Redwood Wedding

I live for forest weddings.  It’s nice to plan your wedding in a remote location free from distractions and the fast-paced life which most of us often experience daily.  This woodsy intimate wedding felt like the middle of nowhere, but it was just outside of Santa Rosa.  Chris and Rachel married in the presence of close friends and family, surrounded by old ginormous trees.  I almost felt we were going to bust out the tents and go camping, and with style.  Rachel’s wedding dress made her look like a kingdom princess in some once upon a time fairy-tale story, and Chris the knight and shining armor or whatever they were called back then.  Rachel and Chris put much thought into the details, delicious desserts and design.  They kept their wedding simple, yet they were creative with their DIY projects and props. I’m not only glad to have photographed their wedding, but also to have made some new friends.  They were kind and friendly, and it was obvious that God and Family were central to their wedding. I left inspired and encouraged.  Here are just a few images from their wedding day! Congratulations to Chris and Rachel once again.
