Let’s dive into Maggie and Taylor’s Lake Tahoe Wedding day—a seamless blend of laid-back vibes and luxe moments in the stunning setting of South Lake Tahoe.
Kicking off the day, Maggie was all about that serene bride life, effortlessly curling her hair while the morning light spilled through the windows. There’s something pretty rad about a bride getting down to business, creating those perfect waves that echoed the lake’s own.
My role? I was on detail duty, ensuring every inch of Maggie’s dress was on point and every detail was photogrtap. A little snip here, a little tuck there, making sure everything was picture-perfect. It’s these behind-the-scenes moments that add up to the big, breathtaking reveal.
And then there’s the little dude of the hour—Maggie and Taylor’s son. This kiddo had one mission: cupcakes, and lots of ’em. After he made a considerable dent in the sweet spread, Maggie had to hit the mic with a laugh and tell the crew to keep the frosted goods out of his reach. It was definitely one of those adorable “you had to be there” moments.
As the sun dipped below the peaks, Maggie switched it up with a dress change that was all elegance and edge—perfect for a lakeside evening under the stars.
The coolest part of it all? Feeling like more than a photographer. By the end of the night, I wasn’t just the “camera person,” but a friend. Maggie and Taylor welcomed my family into theirs, inviting my partner and little one to join the party. It was a celebration where every guest, tiny or tall, felt right at home.
From lakeside luxe to the simple sweetness of a family affair, this wedding was a reminder that the best luxury is feeling at ease. It’s about the chill that comes with knowing everything’s taken care of, from the first look with dad to the last dance. So here’s to Maggie and Taylor: thanks for letting me capture the love, the laughter, and yes, the cupcakes. You had the best Lake Tahoe wedding day!
