Fall in the Forest near Reno, Nevada

After Mitch proposed to her on the front doorstep of their first home (CUTE), Tasha asked if she could fly me out to Reno, Nevada to take their engagement photos near Lake Tahoe. Of course I said YES, absolutely! I love to travel as a photographer. Getting to spend time with one of my long-distance best friends? Just a huge perk of the job!

We caught up with a night of sushi and wine, then spent the next day driving up to Lake Tahoe. We shot the engagement session at the venue they will be getting married at next October! The venue is a dreamy little stone cottage in the woods, and was surrounded by an already frozen pond and trees bursting with autumn colors and fall leaves.

Her ring is so uniquely shaped and just gorgeous! It’s part of the Enchanted Disney Fine Jewelry Collection, which is so fitting for Tasha! She is a huge lover of Disney. We actually became friends while we were roommates during the Disney College Program!

I cannot wait to see these two get married! I feel like I’ve been waiting for this wedding for years, and they’ve been waiting even longer than I have!

Also, Lake Tahoe is so freaking beautiful and I definitely want to shoot here again, engagement session or otherwise. Nevada or Northern California couples – this would be a beautiful location to elope not too far from home! Imagine exchanging vows on a mountaintop with the bluest lake in front of you. I’m ready whenever you are, shoot me a message, let’s make it happen.

Do you want to get married or have an engagement session in an epic location? I have a bucket list of places I want to shoot in! Travel fees will be seriously discounted (or possibly even waived) for any of those locations!
