Stephen and Amanda
The Chateau at Incline Village
Lake Tahoe, Nevada
April 18, 2010

Amanda and Stephen got married Sunday in breathtakingly beautiful Incline Village, Nevada. I loved their engagement session so much that I knew their wedding would be fantastic, but I had no idea just how laid-back and adventurous they would be! They were even willing to hop around on lakeside rocks when I suggested it, which gave them an opportunity to have pictures like this one. I had so much fun photographing them by the lake that I was downright giddy.

Thank you, Amanda and Stephen, for bringing Mike and me to your wonderful wedding. We loved it!
