I was asked to help photograph this wedding by Lake Tahoe wedding photographer Brian MacStay Photography. In terms of scenic views and locations, this was one of the top weddings I photographed this year, out of about 30 weddings. The ceremony was at the Ritz Carlton – Lake Tahoe at Northstar Ski Resort. I had mentioned to Brian I was extremely tempted to bring my MTB and go riding Northstar the day after the wedding.
I started the wedding hanging out with the girls and helping Brian photograph some of the details while waiting for the guys to all gather together. Once they were ready I headed off and spent the rest of the morning there with them. Since most of them were either EMTs or Firefighters (or both) I felt very safe in the room.
The ceremony was held outside in the low 50 degree weather. It was a little bit colder than we expected but it went very well. I had a great vantage point from the Bride’s room before and during the ceremony we opted to have me stay in the room and photograph the ceremony from there.
The reception had no detail spared. The room decorations, flowers, setup, everything was perfect. And I think square/rectangular tables are better than round tables after this wedding!
