Genuine Moments.    Timeless Photographs.

  Proudly serving couples in Lake Tahoe Reno and beyond. 



These are a few of my favorite things

My engagement and wedding couples hold a special place in my heart. It's a blessing to be present for one of the most memorable days of their love story. I take pride in creating a joyful client experience and delivering genuine and timeless photographs.

I also capture Maternity, First Year, and Senior sessions because I love to follow my couples on their journey as their family begins to grow.

They say that life has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters, and I couldn't agree more.

  • Kristi made both of us feel so comfortable and we laughed the entire time! And the photos she took were also amazing, I rarely like photos of myself and I couldn't stop looking at the ones she took!
