We arrived on a windy rainy Saturday. I have to tell you that Carly was the calmest bride I have ever met on a wedding day. Let alone a bride that has pouring rain in her forecast on her wedding day. The original plan was to have an outdoor ceremony on the lawn and for Carly to come in by boat but with the extreme weather, we had to go to plan B. Thank goodness they have a great team of people that surround them.
When one of my photographer besties called me and asked if I wanted to take a road trip to Lake Tahoe for a winter wonderland shoot in Lake Tahoe, I was all for it. I needed a break from this neck of the woods for a few days.
I want it to rain on my wedding day! Said no bride, EVER. Unfortunately, there are just some things we cannot control. I guess you could say I am a bit spoiled when it comes to weather. I grew up in the desert most of my life, and I have spent the past nine years in sunny Southern California. I take our nice weather for granted a lot of the time.

When we first book our brides, the number one comment we hear is; I don’t know how to pose! I get it, standing in front of the camera with a total stranger nuzzling up to your man typically isn’t the most natural thing for most couples! My answer is always the same! “WE GOT YOUR BACK.” So for anyone who feels a little intimidated about posing or nervous about feeling awkward in front of the camera, then this post is for you!
