Steps to stress-free family portraits on your wedding day

Family formals on a wedding day can be the most hectic part of the entire day for many reasons. Family formals are typically done right after the ceremony. But every single guest wants to hug, congratulate, and take a photo with you but after your kiss, I need to whisk you away to get those formals done asap so that way you can get back to your party!

Here are a few tips to have as little stress as possible when it comes to this part of your wedding day:

I finally have time to blog this lovely Tahoe wedding! Melody and Matt decided to have a small destination wedding in South Lake Tahoe but still have coverage of all the important things of their day.

Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Ski Resort Wedding: Thuy + Greg

With a ceremony on top of a mountain overlooking Lake Tahoe, it couldn't have been a more pretty view. Who wouldn't want to get married at the top of Heavenly with a view of all of Lake Tahoe? This definitely called for me to bring out my pink drone and capture all the beauty! Her ceremony included the CUTEST ring security with a skit to mission impossible.

The snow didn't stop her from wearing a dress and heels. And she rocked it! One of the spots for photos was off the path, Jordan was going to wear her heels trudging right through that snow. But like a gentleman, Devon swooped up his girl and carried her. He didn't have shoes appropriate for snow either which meant getting the snow in his shoes, but it's better to have cold feet now than at the wedding. ;)

Winter is not my favorite season but any place looks extremely dreamy with the snow covering everywhere. Lake Tahoe is already such a beautiful location for a wedding but with the pine trees and mountains dusted with snow, is an entirely new level of beautiful.

Every wedding I photograph in Lake Tahoe is special in a different way. This specific one was filled with flowers of pinks, purples, and burgundy. Along with the flowers, the views from the Ridge are just beautiful. Of course, there's a lot of the huge lush pine trees.
