If you follow me on social media, you’ve probably already noticed that we adopted a new kitten recently!  Scout is just the sweetest little guy and he already has such a special bond with my youngest daughter.  I knew I needed to photograph these two on film.  This was my first time shooting Portra 800 rated at 800 and pushing it one stop (if you’re not into shooting film, that probably means nothing to you, but I thought I’d include the info to help myself remember!).  I really love the results and just how sweet these all turned out!  My oldest daughter jumped in at the end for a few pictures, too.  I never regret it when I take the time to do a mini photo shoot with my kiddos!Sacramento wedding fine art film photographerSacramento wedding fine art film photographerSacramento wedding fine art film photographerSacramento wedding fine art film photographerSacramento wedding fine art film photographerSacramento wedding fine art film photographerSacramento wedding fine art film photographerSacramento wedding fine art film photographer

‘Impressions‘ is a creative project by an eclectic group of female photographers from around the globe. We aim to share the inspiration behind what we do through our bi-monthly posts.

Every other month, we will be sharing 8 images that tell the story of what inspired us in the previous weeks: our families, nature, weather, or maybe even work itself! We are free to explore the meaning of ‘impressions’, and it is likely to change month to month.

Please continue through the circle and see what Natalie Carstens is sharing this month. Then continue clicking through the circle till you make it back here… I hope you enjoy all of our posts!

I absolutely LOVE Lake Tahoe… especially Sand Harbor.  So I was extra happy to hear that these two wanted to book me for their fall wedding at Sand Harbor!  We decided to check out the location for their engagement session, as well, and lucked out to hit the perfect day with gorgeous weather and ZERO crowds (Sand Harbor tends to be quite a popular beach!).  The second half of this post is filled with FILM images I shot on my medium format camera.  I love throwing in a roll or two at each session these days, and I’m always pleased with the results!  Lake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement sessionLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format filmLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format filmLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format filmLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format filmLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format filmLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format filmLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format filmLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format filmLake Tahoe Sand Harbor Reno Sacramento wedding photographer engagement session medium format film

I’ve been working on a new project lately… learning to shoot on a medium format film camera!  It’s been a really fun process and I’m grateful for my friends and past clients that have given me a chance to “practice” on them!  This was my first shoot that I did entirely on film… I left my digital camera at home, so I would push myself to use my film camera the whole time.  I’m so pleased with the results!  Film has a dreamy, pastel quality to it that I don’t feel can be replicated exactly on a digital camera.  As I become more efficient with my new film camera, I plan to add this to my shoots, and I’m SO excited about it! Medium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography PhotographerMedium Format Film Sacramento Family Photography Photographer

I’m sure I’ve said this many times before but Taber Ranch has to be one of my all time favorite wedding venues!  For this wedding, the timeline worked out perfectly… they opted to do a first look and some of their portraits before the ceremony which worked out AMAZING!!  We also finished the majority of the family pictures and bridal party portraits before the ceremony.  It made for a very stress free day for all.  I was pleased that we had time to take pictures in the olive grove (SO pretty!) as well as the hill with their iconic red car and oak tree.  My favorite!  Taber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding PhotographerTaber Ranch Capay Northern California Wedding Photographer
