Kayla and Nick’s West Shore Cafe Lake Tahoe Wedding

The first time I talked to Kayla and Nick on the phone I knew they were my people. With stories of bird hunting, boat building and all around good fun – there wasn’t a question we’d get along.

When it came time on their wedding night to do portraits, I knew they would be down for the cause to hike up the beach a ways to a private dock (ask for permission later…?) and it ended up being a GREAT call:

Kayla got ready for her West Shore Cafe wedding on property which allowed for a relaxing morning creating images of Kayla and her closest friends laughing and goofing off as the boy got ready next door.

Nick spent his getting ready time sipping whiskey with the boys – but when it came time to clean up, he did so in style and with ease.west shore cafe lake tahoe wedding

Tahoe is all about adventures and one of those is boating. While they didn’t go for a ski session after their ceremony, Nick and Kayla did take a wood boat ride after their West Shore Cafe wedding.Lake tahoe wedding 09

Did I mention Nick’s buddy’s brought some whiskey? (yes, I tried it, it was good!)Lake tahoe wedding 08

Sometimes asking a couple to dangle their feet off a dock 20+ feet above the water is just what you need for an epic series of photos.Lake Tahoe wedding 04
