She reached out as soon as she got engaged, sending a letter with photos of her and her fiancé. Shana sent a heartfelt email, shared her love story, and insisted I'd be her wedding photographer…and I was smitten. She was so sure of her decision, I immediately agreed and became excited to document her love story in Lake Tahoe. What I didn't fully understand was just how beautiful her day would be.

Shana and Joe said their backyard wedding was a celebration for friends and loved ones, but it was a day rich with history and deep family ties. Their gorgeous wedding was featured in Ceremony Magazine and I couldn't be happier to see their images in print.

Shana paid extra attention to all her wedding details to ensure they were a reflection of their love and personalized every step of the way…

Three days before the wedding, it was pouring rain in Lake Tahoe (it even hailed the size of golf-balls). Weddings in July along the lake are usually peaceful and glorious in the summer months, so while the bride worried the weather wouldn't cooperate, it eventually did. In the best of ways.
