I had such a fun time photographing this little guy's one year old photos this week. I always forget how much I love doing shoots at Manning Park in Montecito. It was absolutely gorgeous with the most perfect lighting!

Lake Tahoe Mountain Wedding - Shannon & Wes

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

One of my best friends Shannon just got married this last weekend up on a mountain top overlooking North Lake Tahoe. I knew going into this that we would have quite a few adventures in store for us since life with Shannon never has a dull moment! And boy was I right!

We started off the morning with a fun snowmobiling trip up to the spot where they got engaged. We were almost there and a few of the others decided to go off the path and ride through the powder. Unfortunately, one of the Dads didn't see the big 8-10 foot hole in the middle of the meadow and tumbled down. Miraculously he was not even hurt, but his snowmobile was lodged under some tree branches and submerged in the water. What turned into a 90 minute excursion, turned into a 4 hour adventure.

It seemed impossible that they would ever get the snowmobile out since it turned out that he landed in a 5 foot pond as well. Luckily they have some resourceful friends and they were able to cut some trees down and pack some snow and make their way out. To our surprise, the snowmobile even started and they used it a few hours later to take us up to the ceremony site.

By the time we got back to the condo, we had 2 hours to relax and get ready for the wedding. I didn't know how I was going to make it since I'm not used to the high altitude and riding a snowmobile for 4 hours before shooting a wedding!

Well, I did and it was amazing! The weather was perfect and it was such an intimate time that was shared with Shannon and Wes' closest family and friends. We stayed up there for a few hours until the cold set in and the sun was starting to go down.

I was so happy to be a part of this special day and can't wait to see what adventures are in store for their life together as husband & wife!

Here I am with the girls. Of course when I hand off the camera to someone else to get a shot of me in the picture, it's out of focus :)

When Shannon opened the box with their wedding cake the night before, she realized they spelled Wes' name "West!" Of course that was the joke the whole next day and everyone referred to him as West :)
