Katie and Emily: Lake Tahoe Golf Course LGBTQ Wedding

Nicky Byrnes Weddings

How to describe Katie and Emily? They are opposites and equals. They are silly and caring. They are beautiful and ridiculous. They are generous and curious. In short, I love them a whole lot, and they are the best. I was honored that they chose me to photograph their LGBTQ wedding in South Lake Tahoe! I was lucky enough to Minneapolis, MN (where they live) to do some engagement photos for them and that’s when I knew that we’d be friends for a loooong time. They showed me around their awesome city and we had WAY TOO MUCH fun tasting the beers of Minneapolis. I also discovered that even though I┬áHATE golf, Top Golf is actually super duper fun! But …

I love weddings of all shapes and sizes but tiny weddings with only the couples’ closest family and friends hold a special place in my heart. Kelley and Mike live in Ohio but held their wedding in Truckee, CA to be closer to family. When I first spoke to Kelley, she hadn’t even chosen a venue! She told me she was thinking of choosing Martis Camp as her venue and I was able to convince her that the beauty of the mountains and the amazing service/food/facilities were worth not having a lake view. The GORGEOUS couple got married on …

Kenny and Luke: Valhalla LGBTQ Wedding

Nicky Byrnes Weddings

Kenny and Luke: loving, funny, silly, smart, caring, kind awesome people. I was more than honored and delighted to be a part of their big day at Valhalla in South Lake Tahoe. Their spirits couldn’t be dampened by near frigid weather and crazy wind as they celebrated with their friends and family. I won’t be doing much talking today because my face hurts from laughing and smiling too much. Also, take note of their EXCELLENT styling choices! If you’re both planning on wearing a suit, try to choose different colors from each other as all blacks or whites tend to get lost together in photos. ┬áKenny and Luke’s contrasting tones looked so so so so good together and gave them …
