For couples who love adventure

I photograph intentionally small, meaningful, and authentic wedding experiences for adventurous couples. A true reflection of your relationship, your wedding ceremony is the beginning of the hopes and wishes for your life together.

Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Starscape Studios offers more than just photographs. I want you to have an incredible experience that you will remember with joy for years to come. Our typical Lake Tahoe wedding photography session is filled with laughter and amazing views at a scenic location that is comfortable for you and your family. I will show you the best places around Lake Tahoe to hike, take a walk along the beach, or summit a mountain. And we’ll take pictures there.

Planning a wedding or elopement is stressful, and I aim to help answer all your questions. I offer a variety of services, including wedding photography coverage, adventure elopement planning, and finding vendors and wedding venues. I am also a Lake Tahoe elopement photographer, and I will happily help you coordinate your beautiful intimate wedding ceremony or adventure elopement. Let’s make your dream wedding come true.

Family Portrait Photography and Special Events

I also offer engagement photography, surprise proposal photography, fine art portraits, and family photography.

My sessions are a fun mix of candid moments and gently posed shots for group portraits. All Lake Tahoe photography sessions come with a detailed consultation, personalized location suggestions and planning tips, professional editing, high resolution digital downloads, and a print release.


Finished galleries are typically delivered in two weeks for family photography sessions, and six weeks for wedding and elopement photography.


Prints, albums, canvases, and other family heirlooms are available to order after your photos have been delivered. Our high-quality photographs are printed on gallery archival paper and packaged carefully before shipping directly to your home.

Reviews from Clients


Sara + Branden

Auburn, CA

Kimmi is amazing! My Fiance and I had some engagement photos taken, and the pictures came out better than I could have ever imagined! Kimmi was knowledgeable about the Tahoe area, was full of great ideas on where to shoot, was happy to include our dog, and was kind, positive, and energetic all the while. Kimmi was responsive to all our correspondence. Our gallery of photos came back to us in half of the time we thought it was going to take, and all of the photos took my breath away. We love Kimmi and her photos!

My husband and I had a September wedding in Oregon and were super fortunate to have Kimmi as our photographer. She has a very artistic eye and is a stealthy ninja that you won't even notice is there (if that's what you desire; we did). Kimmi did not allow the overcast weather to ruin our photos. Working with her even before the wedding was great! She is very thorough and responsive. Kimmi even thinks of things you probably wouldn't! Oh, and did I mention she travels? If you've got that destination wedding idea bouncing around, know that Kimmi actually ENJOYS getting out!

We came across Kimmi’s work online and reached out. Everything from the get go was awesome. She was easy to communicate with and responded quickly that allowed us to plan out our shoot with ease. Since we weren’t locals, we relied on Kimmi to provide the best location for our needs and we couldn’t be more pleased with her recommendations. The day of the shoot was great. Kimmi and her assistant were really easy to work with and made us super comfortable. We just received our pictures and are completely blown away with the work. Pictures were everything we expected and more. We have no hesitation in recommending Kimmi for any photography work. You will not be disappointed!
