Inclusive Wedding Vendors: LGBTQ Wedding Photographers

We believe that everyone deserves to have their love story told through stunning and timeless imagery, and we work tirelessly to ensure that every couple we work with feels seen, heard, and valued. Our passion for inclusive photography extends beyond our work with couples – we are active members of the LGBTQ+ community and are committed to advocating for equality and acceptance for all. In a world where love is often met with judgement and discrimination, we choose to celebrate it in all its forms.

Because to us, love is love.

Winter Wedding at The Landing Resort and Spa

As their closest friends and family arrived at The Landing Resort and Spa in South Lake Tahoe, the snow began to fall in earnest and covering the ground in a blanket of white. Stevie and Marisa exchanged their vows in front of a roaring fire, with the snowflakes swirling on their rooftop ceremony. They read their own heartfelt vows to each other, promising to love and cherish one another for eternity.

After the ceremony, everyone gathered for a festive dinner and dancing, with the snow falling softly outside. The tables were adorned with twinkling lights, candles, and beautiful winter centerpieces. The guests enjoyed a hearty meal of warm comfort food, followed by delicious desserts, and endless cups of hot cocoa. As the night continued the live band played upbeat tunes that kept everyone on the dance floor, warming them up with lively beats and laughter. As the wedding came to an end, the snow had stopped falling, leaving behind a magical winter wonderland for Stevie and Marisa to enjoy.
