South Lake Tahoe Wedding [Alexa + Charlie] // South Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Alexa and Charlie, these two adventurous partners in life first met in Spain (Because Charlie overheard Alexa speaking English!, and let’s be honest — she’s CUTE!) and did the whole long distance before they moved to same location. They have been living all over the world. Spain, Chicago, Argentina and now in San Francisco.

Alexa and Charlie decide to get married in South Lake Tahoe in California where Charlie’s family have a family cabin. Charlie’s grandparents built the cabin for family gathering and celebration like this.

We had an engagement session with Alexa and Charlie last year in their sweet SF home, their neighborhood, and china beach last year. We knew these two were the sweetest people. But we quickly fell in love with how sweet and welcoming their family and friends were on the day of their wedding. And those dance moves we got to see all night was on fire.

Their Lake Tahoe wedding at family property was better than anything we could have imagined. As a couple who previous got married in a backyard at Torian’s mom’s house in North Carolina, we are huge fan of getting married at the place you have history. It’s so intimate and cozy.

It was May in Lake Tahoe and it was windy. But the wind added so much more texture to the photography. Some of our couples worry about how they look with the wind, but truth is you will look even better with wind blowing graciously to you.

We would photograph this sweet Lake Tahoe wedding over and over again if we can. We feel honored to be part of their big day documenting and photographing little and big sweet moments.

This sweet event was helped by Casey from Sasser Events.

Madera Kitchen DTLA Wedding [Annabel + John] // DTLA Wedding Photographer

Did you know that we love hearing or reading how our couples met (Is anybody fan of How I Met Your Mother?)? Anabel and John first met in a club in Las Vegas attending separate bachelor/bachelorette parties! Talking about universe putting them together at a right place and right time!

Who knew they were going to find the love of their lives in Vegas!! Ever since the night they met, they have been inseparable. They have been together in Los Angeles, Oakland and Seattle doing life together and they even have the cutest business together. (Check out Joseph+Sue for the cutest graphic shirts Annabel drew!) — talking about life partners, just like Torian and I.

These two got married at Madera Kitchen in downtown Los Angeles and it was chic, unique and intimate celebration just like how these two are. We always fall in love with LA Venues every time we photograph here. We would love to document more LA wedding (Just manifesting here, okay?!!) and happy that we have upcoming Southern California weddings this year!

Also, could we talk about how cute their aunts and uncles are singing for Annabel and John’s celebration? It melts my heart.
