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
This fall we went up to this gorgeous, golden meadow in South Lake Tahoe to shoot their engagement photos with their lil pup as well! This meadow had the most insane, beautiful sun pouring into the valley of dried grass and we were all living for it. We explored the meadow together, listening to music and dancing around and laughing until the sun tucked behind the mountains. I couldn’t get over their puppy because he’s just the cutest thing ever!! I literally held him the whole time while I shot with Collie and Derek hahah.
Spent this fall morning running around like children and airplanes at Mount Rose Meadows in Lake Tahoe and laughing about dirty jokes in this gorgeous dried up field to capture their engagement photos! Wouldn’t want to spend it any other way!!
We started at the top of Emerald Bay and the sky was so smoky due to the fires– but made for the dreamiest/overcast images!! We made our way down to the lake, and then they hopped in the water at Vikingsholm!!! Capturing their engagements here was a dream– they wanted super fun water photos and that’s what they got.
This summer, Connor reached out to me and said him and his girlfriend we’re heading to Tahoe and he wanted to propose!! We planned out the whole thing and decided on Sand Harbor in Lake Tahoe at sundown. They loved the look of the beach and the boulders (it’s hard to beat) so we made it happen!!
This summer we shot the dreamiest engagement session in Yosemite Valley and up at Taft Point in no other than Yosemite National Park. We camped at AutoCamp right outside the park and it’s now officially become our fave place.
Maggie, Tony and I went out to Verdi, Nevada to celebrate their engagement session this summer and it was the most gorgeous evening! They brought beers, lawn chairs, and the best attitude ever!! We laughed and ran around in the meadow, and then finished off the night kickin’ it and enjoying some beers together! These two are some of the most down to earth, kind people ever and you could really tell that through their photos. So excited to celebrate your big day next year!!! Congrats guys!!
His fiancé Alexa is a planner so he had no idea how to surprise her. I told him to tell me some things they might do and we could just plan around that! They ended up deciding to watch the sunrise at Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe, go on a hike at Eagle falls, explore Tahoe a bit and maybe go grab some food + head to the beach!
We all met up at a trail north of Donner Lake and explored in the trees until close to sundown!
Went up to North Lake Tahoe this summer to shoot Addie and Tyler’s engagement photos!! It was seriously the most perfect evening with a light breeze and the most gorgeous sunset. These two have the sweetest relationship and you can tell that from a mile away– so shooting with them was such a breeze + they made it so easy! We hiked down through the trees and made it to the beach before the sun went down. I’m so beyond excited for you two!!! xx
"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!"
