Ryan and Christine // The First Look

Last weekend I had the pleasure of shooting Ryan and Christine’s EPIC destination wedding up at the Resort at Squaw Creek in the Lake Tahoe area. Every detail was purposefully thought out, the scenery was stunning, and the resort itself was amazing and had the most incredible staff! We were treated like royalty from the second we stepped out of our cute little rental car and they didn’t let it fade for a moment. For a couple that loves the outdoors as much as these two, this location was the perfect place for them to commit their lives together. And not to mention the fact that they waited very patiently for this day… according to their best man it was 5.8 years in the making! Yeah!

This is a dream wedding for me… a wonderful couple who loves being outside, epic scenery, amazing light, and my favorite…. time for a lot of pictures! The most important things to them were the pictures they would get to take with them after the day, so we planned plenty of time to capture it all. They were game for doing their “First Look” before the ceremony so we found a gorgeous woodsy area on the resort property to set it up… and Ryan, being the incredibly thoughtful soon-to-be husband had a gift in hand while waiting patiently to see his bride for the first time…

This one was one of my favorites:)

*LOVE* it!! He got her a journey necklace. So stinkin thoughtful Ryan! This was one of my very favorite moments from the day. There are much more to come, and not to mention the fact that we did a “Day After” shoot where they got all dressed up AGAIN the day after their wedding and we took a cable car up to high camp for some amazing shots overlooking the valley with the lake in the background…

I had the help of the lovely and talented Jen Disney for this wedding too. Did I mention this being a dream wedding for me to shoot yet?

Just sayin.
