My love for Photography:
If you are looking for a local photographer, I am the one.  I began studying photography over twenty years ago when I moved to Lake Tahoe. Tahoe was such a beautiful place that I wanted to capture everything that I saw on film. My fascination with photography only grows stronger each time I go out with my camera.  Weddings are my favorite type of photography to shoot.  Outdoor weddings are always spectacular either on a mountain top or along one of the many beaches on the shores of Tahoe. The Lake is the most beautiful place in the world for a wedding or other special event. I love working with people.  The photos taken today will be the memories for a lifetime.  Let me work with you to make this a reality.

We had a wonderful experience. We eloped in Lake Tahoe. Gerri made it very easy to capture our wedding. She brought us to a beautiful location. Her pictures captured the beauty of the moment and of the area. She had our pics ready for us very quickly.
