I often write how much I love 2nd shooting.  I also often write how I'd like to do it more however since I'm usually pretty busy, I don't get the chance to do it enough.

This time, however, schedules lined up for my buddy Hiram Trillo and I and he invited me out to Lake Tahoe to photograph an intimate elopement style wedding alongside him.  How could I pass that chance up?  I couldn't.  I believe his first words to me after I agreed were ... "She's wearing a red dress."  Come again?  Yeah, its not often you get to photograph a bride wearing anything but white or off-white, let alone red.  But more importantly she was "up for anything."  You tell 2 photographers that and you better be ready.

So off I went to the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe to photograph Raeh + Geoff.  Unfortunately there wasn't much snow around and we had to get up pretty high in the mountains to find some, but we did.  And honestly, it kind of worked out for the better.  They ended up with some pics in the snow and a bunch without snow giving the images a different vibe.  Basically best of both worlds.  It was a beautiful day, with beautiful scenery and although I'm pretty bias they received some beautiful images.
