I had the honor of photographing the gorgeous Thunderbird Lodge in Tahoe last Fall. They have an insane amount of locations on the property to create the perfect keepsake wedding photos.
Graegle, California has a diverse collection of beautiful wedding venues that I would love to shoot at. A few of my favorites include the Chalet View Lodge (above), 20 Mile House (left), and Greaegle Corner Barn.
The most secluded rental in the Sierras is also the most beautiful! Sitting on 40 acres of pristine mountain landscape, The Hideout in Kirkwood, CA is 5,000 square feet of divine wedding space.
Sand Mountain, Nevada
Valahalla Tahoe is a classic wedding venue in the Lake Tahoe area. It has three (!) different venues on the property, including the boathouse theatre (left), the grand hall (right), and the grand lawn. (above)
The Elm Estate
I recently shot a styled shoot at The Elm Estate in Reno and am DYING to shoot a real wedding there as soon as possible!

The incredible views from the aerial tram is worth the trip in itself! High Camp at Squaw Valley provides a stunning mountain backdrop for weddings.

The Ritz Carlton, Lake Tahoe
Heavenly Mountain Resort, Lake Tahoe
Napa Valley is one of the most insanely beautiful locations in the United States. It’s a true shame that I haven’t had the opportunity to shoot an engagement or wedding there yet!

San Francisco City Hall
This is not your average city hall wedding! San Francisco City Hall is one of the more famous locations for dramatic, elegant weddings, classic elopements, and picturesque bridal portraits. It embodies magic.
Bodie is a former gold-mining town turned state park nestled in the Bodie Hills. A true ghost town with lots of amazing structures and sprawling hills to shoot against.
Mt Hood, OR
Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey, CA
Monterey has no shortage of beautiful places for photo shoots. One of my favorites is the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which hosts this dramatic indoor aquarium with floor to ceiling glass. An elopement here would be a true stunner.
