How to Elope in Lake Tahoe in the Fall
Bridgette Wuest photographed my wedding and engagement photos and I would hire again and again and again.
She is Knowledgeable: For our engagement shoot in Tahoe she picked the location and time, to get the most incredible pictures, and she was absolutely right. For our wedding she suggested we change our photo location to get the very best photos and again- absolutely right. She knows how to pose you, or work with you if you already know what you want.
She is Professional: She was early to everything with all of the equipment needed. She has questionnaires before hand so that when you get together you can start rolling immediately.
She is Kind: She sends you gifts and gift cards and thoughtful texts. Weddings have stressful moments, she rolled with the punches and made sure that even though I was stressed, I was taking beautiful photos.
Her work is Stunning: Find her IG. It speaks for itself.
If you're on the fence, do it. You won't find a better photographer.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer who will blow you away start to finish, don't question, don't think, just book Bridgette right now!
Bridgette's incredible eye, overall aesthetic, fun and relatable personality makes her an absolute DREAM to work with and a privilege to have as a vendor for your big day. She is extremely thorough, detailed & willing to help with any thing you may need throughout the wedding process whether that's vendor referrals, wedding timelines, ideas... I can't begin to describe how helpful and valuable she truly was leading up to the big day.
She was hands down our most complimented vendor by our wedding guests... Countless comments throughout our day of how organized, fun, and professional she was. Her day-of assistant unfortunately canceled last minute on her, but trust me, she did not show any sign of stress and she captured EVERY.SINGLE.DETAIL! We received an extremely generous sneak peak by the following afternoon of 150 images.. like that is insane!! I've never had so many people reach out to us wanting to see the photos - everyone was so blown away. It's one thing to see her work and see others in the photos, but seeing yourself, your friends, your family, captured so beautifully and authentically ...there's truly no better gift. We were blown away by the sneak peaks, we fell off our chairs when we got our final album. We laughed, we cried and we felt all the emotions from our wedding day come rushing back. We absolutely adored every single photo, every detail and are so grateful to have discovered Bridgette.
Your photos will be the most cherished gift, I promise you that. We plan to create albums for close family members to share with them because they are so incredibly special. If you are still reading this novel, pause and email Bridgette right now and cross your fingers she's available for your date because you do not want to risk missing out on having her capture your wedding day!
Two words…HIRE BRIDGETTE! She’s ahhmazing! She stepped in and made arrangements to shoot our wedding at the last minute and absolutely crushed it! She made our experience better than we could’ve ever imagined. From helping us to create a timeline to sending us the sweetest packages in the mail, checking in on us on a regular basis to make sure that we were doing good, keeping us calm and on track during our wedding day- she really really went above and beyond and did so much more than just take photos for us.
On top of everything mentioned above, she provided us with wedding sneaks not even 24 hours after our special day. The emotion that she captured is indescribable. I cannot begin to express how thankful we are for Bridgette and what she’s helped us to capture. She’s amazingly talented and we are so so grateful to have found her. The best person all around. The best photographer hands down.
If you are looking for the perfect person to capture your big day, look no further. I knew our pictures were going to turn out absolutely perfect, but the first time I was able to go through them with my husband, we were brought to tears. Choosing Bridgette for your big day will guarantee a gallery of perfectly crafted photos that you will be proud to show off for years to come. Not only does her work exceed perfection, the person behind the camera is somehow even better. I can't tell you how many people from our wedding came up to compliment how wonderful and inviting our photographer was. She is there every step of the way, and went above and beyond her job to make sure our day was wonderful. I couldn't imagine our day without Bridgette there. She is your world class photographer, but she is also your right hand man on your biggest day. There are not enough words to describe how amazing Bridgette was. I will recommend her to everyone I know until the end of time.
