Mary Beth & Shane: Part 2 {Lake Tahoe Wedding Photography}

I’ve been having trouble deciding which images to post since there are so many good ones (these two are unbelievably photogenic). Here are a couple more images from after the ceremony. I love candid shots so much that I just had to share.tahoe1


Next we headed back to their hotel, The Lake Tahoe Hyatt Regency for some more casual shots. I love capturing relaxed shots of couples, and the location couldn’t have been more perfect.

Mary Beth , you are gorgeous.hyatt11

Shane, you’re not so bad yourself!hyatt10

The beach at the Hyatt was so beautiful.hyatt14


Some weather started to roll in, but these two didn’t care a bit…they were all smiles.hyatt4

I like the next two a lot.hyatt3


They boarded this boat at 5 AM the next morning for a fishing expedition…I was seriously impressed. And I received word that Shane caught quite a few.

Photogenic much?hyatt7


I love how content they both look.hyatt2

And lastly, two of my favorites from the day:hyatt5


Mary Beth and Shane, you guys are amazing! May your life together be as sweet as your wedding day.



PS- Thanks for the fabulous bottle of wine…we enjoyed every drop and toasted you two! xxoo
