I was playing disc golf a few days ago with my buddy Julien and he asked me if I could shoot a shotgun wedding the following day for a friend of his who had been seriously injured in a car accident a few months ago. There are a lot of great wedding photographers in the Tahoe area and since I'm not really that good at shooting weddings, I politely declined. But as he told me Kirk's story, I became more interested and open to the idea. Then he told me where the location was and I accepted. The catch was that I was going to shoot it for free. Why? It seemed like a nice thing to do for someone who has had a rough couple months and it was something that just felt good in my heart. So I contacted my good friend and photographer Cody Davis and asked him to join me as a second shooter for this event.
Here are a few of the photos from the wedding. It took place on top of Eagle Rock which is located on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe and offers stunning views of the lake and surrounding mountains.

Driving home from Carnelian Bay yesterday, I could tell the sunset was going to be stellar. I rushed home to grab my camera and found the quickest spot to post up for a good picture. It was late and I was running out of light but I fired off a few frames and got some nice photos.
