Lake Tahoe Wedding and Portrait Photographer | Tahoe Weddings »

Separate countries cannot keep true love apart and we were stoked to capture this sweet couples bliss as their Lake Tahoe Engagement Photographers. Manjila & Matthew might live on two different continents but we could clearly see how their love for each other keeps their relationship strong. With India being where Matthew is originally from and Manjila being from Nepal it is amazing how these two souls found each other. Their love story began when they met in a small island community off the coast of India where they both were living and working at the time. They shared a common love of the small island life where you would literally have to rent a boat to get anywhere. Work and school however being necessary in their lives found them now living in locations far away from each other.  Matthew now lives and works in Australia. Manjila now resides in Berkeley and is finishing up her studies in San Fransisco.  Maintaining a long distance relationship and planning a wedding is never easy but these two have managed to remain close while so far away. They soon will have to decide on what continent they will call home once Manjila is finished with her studies.

They told us that Tahoe called to them to have their photos taken as they felt it is a perfect location with stunning scenery for the images. We were super excited to meet these two and honored to be their Lake Tahoe Engagement Photographers.

This dress was so gorgeous on her and we just love the candidness of this image….a moment shared between them. Literally spent a few minutes at most walking on the dock but stoked with the outcome!!

Manjila then changed into a traditional Indian dress to honor Matthew’s heritage and the colors of their clothing together just popped in the scene. They are such a beautiful couple. Those eyes!!

The day ended with the weather warming up just enough to feel some sunshine goodness. We were happy to be a part of this sweet couples journey and wish them both so much happiness ahead!! To check out more of our engagement sessions or other work, pop on over to our website


So nice to see that the Tahoe Wedding Collection featured our photo for their print advertisement in Today’s Bride Magazine.  The Tahoe Wedding Collection includes Lake Tahoe wedding venues at Heavenly Northstar and Kirkwood. We feel honored to represent what these awesome ski mountain venues bring to the table for our brides and grooms. That and it is always nice to see your work in print! Not only are these venues both stunning and serene, but they allow us as Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographers to capture moments against a backdrop of breathtaking scenery.

We absolutely love working at these mountain gems as it seems like the couples that we have the opportunity to photograph at these beautiful mountain places are both adventurous and often a little daring… i.e. the featured photo for the print advertisment being case in point! If you are looking for that perfect venue fit, you might want to check out these venues for your dream Lake Tahoe mountain wedding location.

Tahoe Wedding Collection

The featured photo was taken at Northstar which is part of the Tahoe Wedding Collection.

As if by chance we went to a spot unknowingly with them where they had apparently already photographed together before.  As quick as we could snap away this dynamic couple flew up into the most graceful pose atop the mountain. Apparently they were into Aerial Yoga and made it look so easy in their formal wear. We had such an amazing time with this couple on their wedding day. They even had their super cute fluffy dog there to share in the love. Check out their full blog post from their wedding day to get a glimpse into a North Lake Tahoe summer wedding at Northstar.  Also if you are wanting to see some South Lake Tahoe Summer Heavenly weddings check out our blog to see that venue.


It was only natural that Robin and Peter choose to have their wedding at Northstar Lake Tahoe to say their I do’s as this is the resort where they spend much of their time together. They are beautiful wandering souls who happened to find each other on their journey through life. They love adventure and live their lives in the moment. As their wedding photographers the sweeping mountain views made for a spectacular backdrop with plenty of photo locations to choose from. They chose to have a first look to start the photography which gave us enough time before the ceremony to capture the bridal party as well as some amazing photos of them together before.  As the wedding ceremony processional began, the crowd broke out into applause welcoming the bride, groom and bridal party down the aisle. Their sweet little dog Yoshi was beyond fabulous and well dressed for the occasion. You couldn’t help but want to snuggle up to him:-

The smiles on their faces throughout the day were infectious and you could truly feel the love and warmth of their family and friends surrounding them as they became husband and wife. It was serendipity when we set them up on the hillside next to some lupine flowers and they told us they had some pictures together already in that exact location. They then proceeded to launch into aerial yoga that was a surprise and quite stunning with the views behind them. They were so graceful and Robin looked as though she was floating on air. When we headed down the gondola to the village for the reception it was super fun walking around with them hearing passerby’s wishing them congratulations.  It was such an honor to witness their day through our lens and we wish them love and light on their new beginning together.

A big shout out to Mercie from Northstar Lake Tahoe for her help and kindness!

Having recently moved to Lake Tahoe, Haley & Dillon chose an Emerald Bay Engagement session for their photos. While we LOVE shooting there we have to admit we were a bit nervous as it tends to get really crowded making for a distraction free photo session pretty difficult. So imagine how happy we were to show up and feel like we had the place all to ourselves!! These two really went for it and had no problem dipping into the icy waters and climbing out onto a ledge to get the shot. Thanks you two for choosing us to capture your bliss. We had an AMAZING time with you!! Lake Tahoe Engagement Photographers

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I’m sailing through the sea
To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music fill the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through the trees
Move so pretty you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Jason Mraz “Lucky”

Boy meets girl…they have some coffee, a little bit of wine and fall head over heels in love…and as they say the rest is history:-)

I have known Misti since our days together at Livermore High School so I was beyond thrilled and honored that she asked us to be her wedding photographers!! She is one of those girls that has an infectious smile and such a kind heart. We didn’t get the opportunity to meet Dave before the wedding day but when we finally did meet him we could definitely see why the two of them make such a beautiful couple both inside and out!! Their ceremony took place at St. Charles Borromeo in Livermore with a reception following at Wente Vineyards. The church is one of our favorite Catholic churches to photograph at as it has such crisp natural lighting which helps out so much as you cannot use lighting/flash during a church wedding.  Wente of course is such a stunning venue all around and has so many photo opportunities. Their wedding day was filled with such joy, laughter and quite a few tears….I fond myself welling up quite a few times. Congratulations you two!! We just know you will be so happy together and have a fabulous lifetime of beautiful memories.
