My Philosophy

I’m here to encourage you to have the wedding of your dreams, whether that’s the two of you on a cliff-side or partying with 100 of your fave humans. I’d be honored to capture your day how it felt, so you can relive that nostalgia all over again for generations to come. 

As a documentary photographer, I'm not here to make magic. I'm here to capture the magic that already exists -- from the electricity when you see each other all dressed up for the first time on your wedding day, to the flower girl smearing lipstick on her face, to your grandpa wiping his tears during your ceremony, to the goosebumps on your arm when your dad shares the speech he wrote 10 years ago, for this exact moment in time. 

Your story is so magical and beautiful and truly your own, and it deserves to be captured with the utmost care & attention to detail. My job is to witness all of these moments, and preserve them for you to remember for the rest of time. Your photos are what you'll look back on to remember this incredible milestone and celebration, and what your loved ones will have to tell stories about you. Your photos will be the ONLY thing left to hold onto once your wedding is over, making your photos grow more in value the more time that passes. If you want to relive all the nostalgia you felt on the best weekend of your lives, I'd be honored to capture it for you.

GET TO KNOW bridge

But you can call me Bridge! I'm a documentary wedding & elopement photographer based in Lake Tahoe. I truly believe that I was put on this earth to document stories, and give them back to the people in the photos. I've been a photographer for 7 years now, and photographed hundreds of weddings. You can trust your memories are in good hands and will be treated with love and care!

If you want a fun, laid-back photographer who's going to not only document your wedding with the utmost care, but also someone who's going to be there to help every step of the way, I'd love to chat! If you like what you've seen so far, checkout more about the photographer behind the camera (meee!) and see if we'd be a good fit!

Trust is one of the most important aspects of us working together.

When you trust me to document your memories, you let go and allow yourself to be in the moment to truly celebrate the best day of your lives. This in turn gives me creative control to capture and document your story to the best of my ability! 

When we trust each other, everything works. You have the best day ever, and I create my best work for you!

My ultimate goal is that you two feel comfortable when working with me! You leave your session thinking "wow, that was so much more fun that I could even imagine!"

And then your wedding day comes, and every moment is perfect in it's own way. I'll be there to help you throughout the day, wrangle your family for photos, and dance with y'all on the dance floor. When you work with me, you'll never ask "where do I put my hands?"

Photography is arguably the MOST important thing you could invest in on your wedding day. Your photos and memories are only going to keep growing in value, the more time that passes. 

In 20 years, you'll be SO thankful that you hired a photographer who documented your day with care, and you have timeless photos to pass down through generations.

Taylor & Alex

"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."

don't question, don't think, just book Bridgette

Jaimie & Will

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!


Maddy & Carter

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.

 I couldn't imagine our day without Bridgette there

Nicole & Dana

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.
