Kristina and Ryan were married at the gorgeous Valhalla Estate in South Lake Tahoe. The drive into Tahoe is always a favorite of mine and I was lucky enough to enjoy Tahoe with these two awesome people twice. Their engagement remains (and probably always will be) one of my all time most favorite sessions ever. We hiked and laughed and talked and I immediately knew I would love this girl and her fiancé for all time. They love Tahoe, the mountains, hiking, and the beautiful scenery around the lake. Their family owns a beautiful cabin and they enjoy spending time here. It is an appropriate place for their wedding, since there is so much love here already.
Kristina is one of those radiant souls that can light up any room. She is bright, loving, fierce, and someone I am honored to have met. I was introduced to her through a dear friend of mine (another photographer I met in an online group many years ago). Ryan is a fun, supportive man who loves Kristina with all his heart. I admit I enjoyed stalking them on Instagram and Facebook over the last year, and the fun they have in their life together is admirable. I hope they continue to travel, eat delicious food, and spend time with their amazing tribe of friends.
Their families were so completely gracious and fun. The laughter and happy tears and joy was palpable. The day was insanely gorgeous, with Tahoe putting on a beautiful show at sunset. The color danced in the sky as the guests danced inside. I am so grateful for this couple and their friends and families for being so wonderful. I wish Kristina and Ryan a lifetime of happiness, which I am sure I will continue following on social media 😉
