Adventure Couple in Lake Tahoe
Adventure Wedding Photographer, Charleton Churchill

I had been visiting with couples at The Hideout wedding venue a few weeks ago, so I planned four engagement sessions all around Lake Tahoe during that time. This wonderful couple, Evan and Kaitlin are a little closer. I photographed Evan’s sister’s wedding (Kelsey and Ryan) a few years back. They are such a great couple who enjoy being around each other. I will be photographing their wedding at the same home in West Tahoe. Evan and Kaitlin brought some clean style and owned it. Kaitlin’s dress blew in the wind, along with her hair, which looked great. When we first started, the wind was howling, rocking my truck back and forth. I was curious what kind of adventure session the good Lord was going to allow, but it turned out better than expected.

We traveled to a few locations I had previously hiked, one of which I found while exploring a new path. It had epic views for photos of the mountains, which still had some snow on them. Around Lake Tahoe, there’s always a place to photograph couples, whether you’re in the busy South Lake Tahoe, the quieter north Lake Incline Village, or anything in between or around.  There are trails and off-road areas where I use my 4wd Toyota Tacoma, sometimes for couples. I’m excited to share more weddings, engagement sessions, and adventure later. I have a lot of traveling out of state and around the world later in the year, some surprises, and other unknowns. For now, here is Evan and Kaitlin’s engagement photo session. Congratulations to them and their future together.

Wedding at the Hyatt Regency Tahoe, Lake Tahoe, Nevada

Kelly and Heather married last month at the Lake Tahoe Hyatt Regency hotel. No doubt, I was honored to have been asked to document this military family wedding. Full respect here for those who serve and sacrifice to allow us the freedoms we enjoy. Even though there were respected servicemen present, there was also lots of laughter, comedy, smiles, and special family moments.

Kelly and Heather have a great story to tell. They have known and liked each other since they were kids. This day of celebration was a culmination of years spent together. According to their high school yearbook, they were “the couple most destined to stay together.” Not only have they known each other and been together for a long time, but their smiles radiated off one another. It’s as if they were on their first date. They are the sweetest couple. Kelly and Heather are friendly to anyone and respectful to their families who have raised them well. These type of weddings are inspiring. I appreciate the unique stories from every couple I photograph. Everyone has a story and I love learning about them. Congratulations to Kelly and Heather as they begin the other part of their story together.
