Adorn Life Ph Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer IMG_4758-Edit.jpg

I love it when romance stories starts in high school. Passing relationship time test defines all. It takes time to grow and how important it is to grow within the same timeline. If for some reason time keeps testing you, keep the attraction going and let happenstance do the job.

Cassie and Derek are the best clients! They were so relaxed, easy to work with and darn they knew how to pose - I had my work cut out. Really looking forward to photograph their wedding celebrations at The Gatekeeper’s Museum next summer.


These, The Bay Area lovers, met back in high school. They even took the same ceramics class where they used to chat together. The crush was there but the timing wasn’t right. It took a few more chats and couple of years to pass until at friends birthday party they finally gave it a dance, shared a kiss and pretty much ever since that night been together. It has been 8 years!

I just want to say that Derek’s plan for proposing to Cassie was simply superb. They both love snowboarding at Northstar Resort so Derek arranged friends weekend trip to Tahoe. He booked VIP area at Toast which is a champagne bar on the top of the mountain. It is Cassie’s favorite place to go to since champagne is her jam! This is where I got excited whilst reading their story, because when it comes to bubbles, Cassie and I have a lot in common. Snowboarding at Northstar and getting some champagne at Toast is my jam too! :)

Unfortunately Derek had to come up with Plan B since Cassie broke her wrist a week prior to the trip. It was just as awesome plan! On the way to dinner he stopped and got down on one knee in the middle of Northstar Village. It was lightly snowing and their friends were there to celebrate with them. No doubt they had a lot of champagne that night. Cassie said that it was the best night of her life so far!!

I am certain that their wedding day will be absolutely incredible!
