the stories of my couples and their biggest adventure yet
We danced to music, explored lake side, they took their shoes off and got their feet a little wet and dirty as they navigated over the rocks, and celebrated the fact that they’re now married!!! Getting the chance to become such close friends with these two, and then getting to capture their
We made it to the overlook at Cave Rock in Lake Tahoe and took it all in to kick off their engagements, and then made our way back down! We hopped in the car, and then drove up to North Shore to head to their favorite lil restaurant that’s super special to them – Lone Eagle Grille. We ordered some drinks to go (plastic cups for the win lol) and walked on the beach til sundown. We found a few lawn chairs and hung out for a bit, told stories, and just soaked up the sun and the fact that they’re gettin married!!!
When I first started planning the shoots and content for the Transformed Content Days in Tahoe this winter, this is the shoot that I dreamt up. An elopement tucked away in a mountain cabin in Tahoe where they shared their vows and had a sage burning ceremony on the back deck.
Earlier this Spring Ashley and Yami drove out into the middle of no where in Black Rock Desert and we captured them under the stars. It was one of my first times playing around with astro photography and it was such a dream!!! Then I whipped out my flash and we took cute photos of them in the dark. So freaking obsessed with them and these photos and can’t thank them enough for modeling for me for the Transformed Content Days this past February!!! Love ya’ll so much!!
PERSUE YOUR DREAMS FEARLESSLY & PASSIONATELY. Even when things take a turn, even when they don’t go exactly how you want it to, even when others don’t believe in you, even when everything might feel like it’s falling apart— KEEP GOING. Y’all— this shoot was freakin hard. The desert was supposed to be dry so […]
Olivia and Garrett decided to elope and hold their gorgeous, boho wedding at Moon Rocks, Nevada. It was the most gorgeous late late winter and the sun came out just in time!! They shared their vows on the cutest vintage rug from XXX overlooking the boulders behind them. We explored and took photos all over Moon Rocks and they were blown away. These two have such a special love that just lights up the room, and it was so evident when capturing them amongst the rocks and red dirt!
Carlene and Bob brought out their ATV’s and quad’s and we drove around Sand Mountain early at sunrise this Spring!! They come out to Sand Mountain in Fallon all the time to hang with their friends, camp, and race on the sand– so this session was so fitting for them!! Such a fun morning– love ya’ll so much!!!
Ahh this was the best day this past winter exploring and adventuring around South Lake Tahoe with these two!! Some of my good friends K + W and I headed up to the lake to explore and take their engagement photos with all the beautiful snow that just fell!! We went to South Lake Tahoe and Fallen Leaf Lake– two of my favorite places ever! We ran around in the snow, laughed our asses off telling stories and playing music, and then ended the evening getting sushi. It was perfect. So freakin excited for you guys!!! CONGRATS!
Shelby and Cliff modeled for me for the content days we held in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area this past February!! Everything was such a dream and all the vendors involved made the exact vision I was dreaming up come to life!! Even though Sand Mountain was a bit chilly and not exactly what we were hoping for– it was perfect!! Thank you so much for everyone involved!!
Words can’t even describe how amazing this day was. It was filled with so many tears and so much laughter and joy. I’m so beyond thankful for everyone involved to make it as amazing as it was!! Denise and Austin– thank you from the bottom of my hearts for trusting and investing in me as your wedding photographer!! SO GRATEFUL! Your wedding was an absolute dream day!!!
"When looking for a photographer for our elopement, Bridgette came highly recommended by a friend. After spending time browsing her photos, I knew we could not pass up the opportunity to shoot with someone who could capture mine and my husband’s quirky love so well! Bridgette was so accommodating and excited from the first time we spoke. She continued to show the accommodation and excitement through the cold weather during our engagement shoot and wedding day. She goes above and beyond and came so well prepared it made the day a breeze. Her sunny personally and calming effect really helped ease the stress of being in front of the camera. The photos turned out so beautiful, and that is just the icing on the cake during this whole experience. We feel like we became friends with Bridgette and can’t wait to work with her again in the future!"
