Just got back from this gorgeous Lake Tahoe engagement session... Christine and I have been emailing for so long, I felt like I knew her before we had even spoken. It was so much fun to finally meet her and Dave on their home turf in Reno! Their wedding is coming up in less than a month in Durango, and it's going to be amazing. I know a few secret details about it so I'm super excited! It was a pretty chilly day and Reno had just gotten dumped on, but I got to walk around and explore a little bit before our shoot started. The vibe of this place is so unique - it's like a less glitzy, smaller Vegas, except they still have all the old neon signs, which I loved. It turns out that some of my favorite vintage-looking casino signs during the day were the one that were abandoned and didn't light up at night.
Christine and Dave clearly love each other so much, and it was an honor to be there with them. Thank you guys so much for driving me through two states for such a fun engagement session! I can't wait for the wedding!
One of my favorite things to do when I'm in a new place is wander around with my camera and try to figure out how the town feels to me, if that makes any sense... so, a few fun shots of downtown Reno:
Lake Tahoe was incredible. I had never been, but loved wading through several feet of snow with my camera and their sweet dog :)
Not a bad shot, considering it was taken out of a car window:
The water is unbelievably blue. Like, Caribbean blues and turquoises.... so pretty!
Christine is a geologist, so this ring shot seemed appropriate:
Thanks again, guys! Your wedding is going to be so incredible - I can't wait! :)
