Tammy & Lance in Tahoe

» View Full Post

Friday, May 30th, 2008 -

Well last weekend I had a wedding in Lake Tahoe. It was a blast. The weather wasn’t on our side though. I guess the weekend before it was 80 degrees. So we were all surprised when a crazy storm came in and the weather dropped to 30 degrees. So the ceremony was moved inside. Tammy was such an amazing bride. Even with the cold weather she never let anything keep her from having a blast. She was so much fun.She had an amazing coordinator Jeni Waters keeping everything on track for her. Great job Jeni. It was so much fun working with you. The reception was such an amazing party. They had one of my favorite band. The James Gang from West Coast Music. They are so amazing. Any of my couples considering a band for their wedding have to check out The James Gang. The also had Daniel form DV Artistry doing video. He did an amazing same day edit.

I had to grab one shot of the lake. Later in the day you could hardly see the lake because the clouds got so thick.

I was only able to get the wedding party outside for about 5 minutes. It was just way to cold. The poor girls were freezing. I think it was in the high 20′s at this point in the day.

I had to put a picture of Tricia and Bret. I met Tammy at Tricia’s wedding a few years back. I knew back at Tricia’s wedding that Tammy would be a great bride. So thanks Tricia for the referral. I love getting to see my past brides at their friends weddings.

Scuba Diving in Maui

» View Full Post

Thursday, May 15th, 2008 -

After my busy weekend of weddings I had to fly out on Sunday for a wedding I had to shoot in Maui. I decided to make a family get away out of it. So Stephanie and the kids came along. After we shot the wedding on Monday we had a few days of free time. So i talked everybody into Scuba Diving. I’m already certified but I really wanted Stephanie and the kids to give it a try. They were all for it. So we did a couple of shore dives. It was a blast. Everybody wants to get certified right when we get home. Here are a few images from today’s dive.
