Hi, I'm ashley.

Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, straddling the border of California and Nevada. It’s known for its beaches, ski resorts and maybe I’m biased as a local wedding photographer, but I’d say also for their gorgeous wedding venues! See some of my favorites here.

Resort at Squaw Creek

Resort at Squaw Creek is an award-winning, AAA Four-Diamond resort in Lake Tahoe, California. Celebrate your ceremony and wedding reception in Lake Tahoe surrounded by breathtaking views of Squaw Valley, towering ponderosa pines, magnificent mountain peaks, and more stars than you could possibly count.

Walking down a pine-tree shaded aisle to exchange your vows or dancing below a colorful, open sky are wedding dreams turned to reality at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. The magic of the mountains paired with the luxury of the resort create an unforgettable destination for couples to celebrate their big day.

Hellman‑Ehrman Mansion is a historical site in California, in 1965 the house and 1,975 acres of the estate were acquired by the California State Park System. Today the house is maintained as a house museum and as an example of the opulent tradition in Tahoe summer homes. And of course a bonus, they host beautiful weddings!!
