    Dear Susanne, Your photography is exquisite. Of course I might be a bit partial, I’m Grammy Hogge, and Chris’s Mom. You always do such a beautiful job in capturing these very special people and the love they share for each other. I can’t wait to see all of the results of these photos. I want to order some of these, for display in my home. Thank You for all you do. Warmest wishes, Proud Mom-Grandma Hogge in Bremerton, WAReplyCancel

I adore Lake Tahoe… It’s one of my favorite places in all the world!  We are pretty dang lucky to live only a couple of hours away and have the chance to visit often.  When my friend Jo from Bluella Photography invited me to shoot this wedding with her at the Hyatt Incline Village, I just couldn’t say no!  Nothing beats a venue with an amazing view, right?!  We shot this wedding last spring when it was hot, hot, HOT in Sacramento, so it was especially nice to escape the city for some cooler mountain weather!  Here are some favorites from the day…Hyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach weddingHyatt Regency Incline Village Lake Tahoe beach wedding

Today we celebrate 14 years of marriage!  We were just babies when we got married… I was 19 and he was 23.  I can’t believe it’s been so long, but at the same time, I can’t imagine my life without him by my side!  He’s the most patient, wonderful man I’ve ever known and I’m so blessed to have him as the father of my children, my partner in life, and my best friend.  I never thought it would be possible, but I love him even more each day than the one before.  I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from our wedding and some photo shoots over the past few years… First up are a couple of scanned pics (terrible quality – sorry!).  Our photographer, Kimberlee Miller, shot these on film.  Our wedding day…weddingFirst anniversary… my hair was super curly before I had kids!

I can’t think of anything more dreamy than ballerinas among castle ruins at sunset… am I right?!  So I was especially excited to have the opportunity to participate in this styled shoot during a photography conference.  Not only is Knapp’s Castle in Santa Barbara one of the most AMAZING locations I’ve ever seen, but the models and the light that day were simply gorgeous!  Here are a bunch of favorites from the shoot…KnappKnappballerina-1-wKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnappKnapp

My own bedroom growing up consisted of a peach quilt and a cat poster that read “Bad Hair Day”.  I loved filling my room with my own artwork and nick nacks I picked up on our family vacations.  I didn’t realize it then, but I have always been a fan of home decorating.  I wish I had pictures of my room growing up, even if it wasn’t decorated very well… it would just be fun to have it documented to show to my own kids.  Which is why I decided to make it a priority to photograph my own kids in their bedrooms and document how they wanted their rooms decorated as children.  My eleven year old, Kaitlyn, has had a “mermaid/ocean” themed room ever since we lived in Monterey and she shared a room with her little sister.  We’ve been collecting things over the past three years or so, and when we were moving into our new house in the Sacramento area, I asked the girls if either of them would like to keep the ocean theme.  Kaitlyn gladly said she would and we’ve had a fun time planning ways to make her room look more like a pre-teen space.  Mermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlKaitlyn’s cat, Lola, is a rescue kitty (notice the clipped ear… she was from a feral litter and the vet clipped her ear so she could be released back into the wild, but we rescued her instead!).  She follows Kaitlyn around like a puppy and sleeps on the foot of her bed at night.  I thought it would be nice to have some pictures of these two together!Mermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlYes, we have THREE cats (one for each of our kids).  And they’ve all been acquired since we moved into our new house, over the past year!Mermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girlMermaid ocean themed girl
