Miss Caitlyn recently graduated from Spanish Springs High School in Sparks, Nv . She will be attending the University of Reno this fall.   Early in the year we teamed up with Miss Caitlyn to capture her senior portraits, but what's a senior portrait session with out the cap and gown ? We met up for the afternoon in down town Reno for a little session and it was incredibly fun. Miss Caitlyn is a bright remarkable young lady and I have no doubt that she will succeed in all of her life's adventures. 

 " You cannot help but learn more as you take the world into your hands.

Take it up reverently, for it is an old piece of clay, with missions of thumbprints on it. "

    Congratulations Miss Caitlyn and The Class of 2018 

 Enjoy,

Dinosaur Boudoir | A Wave of the Wand Photography | Sparks, Nv http://www.awaveofthewand.com/blog/2018/7/dinosaur-boudoir-a-wave-of-the-wand-photography-sparks-nv  

 

One of my favorite things to do is out of the box creative session's.

Sometimes you have to find just the right person that wants to do something out of the ordinary as well.  Miss Kay is always up for this type of adventure so of course , We made the perfect team. 

I love the Jurassic Park movies and with the newest one out in theaters I thought , Why not spice up things a bit and I created a Dinosaur Boudoir session and I am in love with how this session turned out.

Here is just a few teaser's from the session. Stay tuned as there is plenty to share. 

Enjoy,

A Wave of the Wand Photography 

P.S no Dinosaur's were harmed during this session.

Rough and Ready Vineyards & Guest House |Sarah & Stephen | Grass Valley Wedding Photography http://www.awaveofthewand.com/blog/2018/7/rough-and-ready-vineyards-guest-house-sarah-stephen-grass-valley-wedding-photography Sarah and Stephen were married on a beautiful September afternoon at the Rough and Ready Vineyards in Grassvalley, Ca. They had family and friends from near and far to join in on the festivities. The day was jam packed with laughter and tears. The theme for the wedding was Beauty and the Beast and the little Disney details were all around. Stephen's Aunt made lanterns for all of the tables with the couples favorite Disney rides on them. The groom's men had on Star wars socks and of course there were Mickey Ears and a Light Saber Exit to add to the fun.  Stephen's dad even had a Disney Trivia Toast with questions about Disney Movies. They both did a pretty good job at guessing the correct movie title.  Of course our love for Disney is what brought this Disney Loving Couple and us together.  We are truly honored to have been apart of their special day. 

 

Stephen and Sarah  met at a going away party for a mutual friend in January of 2013. Neither one of them was really ready for a relationship at that time but they became really good friends. After (Sarah) got into a really bad car accident in February of 2013 Stephen became her ride to school until she was able to get a new car. They were inseparable and after that started their relationship on April 3, 2013. They both knew very early on that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. Finally on our 3 year anniversary (April 3, 2016) while they were celebrating in Disneyland Stephen choreographed the most romantic proposal by asking Sarah to marry him in the wheel house of the Mark Twain Riverboat.

Destination Wedding , Blue Sky Terrace Heavenly Resort , Lake Tahoe -Stephanie and Chris http://www.awaveofthewand.com/blog/2016/7/destination-wedding-blue-sky-terrace-heavenly-resort-lake-tahoe--stephanie-and-chris We met in a small town bar. I had just moved to town a few months earlier and was busy sulking about a lot of the things that had happened in my life and where it had got me. I moved for a fresh start and instantly starting feeling positive and hopeful. I had told myself when moving to a Navy town that there is NO WAY I will date a Navy boy (keep that in mind) also, I had zero ideas how to date as I was married and with the same man since I was 15. So here I was, recently 28, divorced, with 3 kids starting all over.. anyways (kinda went off on a tangent there…sorry). I moved to this town because my best friend from high school lived there. After months of not doing anything since getting there she finally convinced me to suck it up and go have a drink with her at the bar. So…. I did

About an hour into drinks that night, here approached this guy, going to my friend first (he says she was way less intimidating and it was his way to open conversation with me  cute stuff, I know). He says “what are you ladies up to tonight?” Long story short, we ended up talking all night. He really made me laugh a lot. He told me he was a manager at Jack in the Box ( I knew he was full of it, I knew he was Navy- I just had no idea how much of a big deal his job really was). So here was this 21 year old boy… yes, that’s how I thought of him.. a kid… but he had my attention. My friend was shocked as I tend to always blow men off and never give them the time of day….but this one… this “toddler” as she liked to call him, had me intrigued. Anyways, I gave him my number. He said he was going to go run with me (I'm an avid runner and I race quite often) so I gave it to him. We said goodnight and that was that.

I woke the next morning thinking and laughing to myself “what a cute kid….but im never going to see him again”…. I woke to a text from him from that night when he got home… around 2am… said “its crazy, I cant stop thinking about you…Have a goodnight Miss”

Although I never planned to see him again, he was pretty persistent. Always texting and always trying to meet up.. I blew him off or used the kids as an excuse quite often.

Finally… after maybe a month of flirting back and forth and constant persistence, I agreed to a date. Honestly had no idea what this 21 year old guy wanted with a divorced with 3 kids, 28yo woman, but I agreed. 

The date was…incredible… not what I expected and I had forgotten just how smitten with him I was. We had an amazing time and laughed and talked most of the night into the morning. We said goodnight and that we’d see each other again soon.

I was surprised when he already wanted to see me again the next day. So date 2, was literally the next day…. After that, it was just kind of over for life without one another and we have been nearly inseparable since. We both didn’t want to admit we loved each other till much much later; but we did. 


We moved in together about a year later. Engaged 6 months after that. And now, 2 years later we are getting married. He is an amazing human being and ive just never met anyone like him. He’s such a loving and great father to my kids. And to this day still keeps me laughing everyday.

 

Stephanie and Chris were married over looking beautiful Lake Tahoe in the Blue Sky Terrace, Surrounded by so much love from their family and friends. It was a beautiful day and we had a blast capturing their love story as it unfolded. We became fast friends and we are looking forward to watching them grow as husband and wife as they start this new life together with their family. 

Enjoy,

Destination Wedding, Chart House , Kristi and Thomas , Lake Tahoe , NV http://www.awaveofthewand.com/blog/2016/7/chart-house-wedding-photographer-kristi-and-thomas-lake-tahoe-nv "I will love you and no other, always."

Thomas and I met on the beautiful island of Oahu, HI. I had visited the island to see if I would be up for relocation with my company, so I came out to the island for a week. Thomas is/was currently stationed on Oahu. We had met through a mutual friend that lived on island. After I had a rough day of traveling he wanted to meet even though I was exhausted and did not look the best I figured why not. After a few hours of drinking and nonstop laughter we ended up at the beach where we continued laughing and sharing our life and secrets. We both did not think it would go as well as it did. After we both got off work every day we ended up meeting and going to be beach staying out much longer than we had expected. Soon it was my time to catch my flight, and one of my coworkers who had traveled with me ended up putting me in a very bad mood. I tried to shake off the emotion since it was my last day with Thom, but I was unable to. I regret the way that I said goodbye and I still am not living it down a year later. I said goodbye to Thom with a side hug and got into the car with my coworker, and headed back to the hotel to grab my things to leave. At that time Thom thought that that was it, everything was over. On my flight back I was beating myself for the way I left. I could not wait to land to talk to tell him and tell him my decision about relocating. When I landed he was the first person I called and told him I was going to take the job (although it was mainly for him). A month later and I was in Hawaii, this was going to be the start to a fun adventure so I thought. When I flew out Thom had just had an extensive surgery and I was again living in a hotel until I could find a place to stay. After finally getting settled in to a new place and Thom on his way to recovery I was informed by my company that they needed me on a different island for a few weeks to help out a location there. A few weeks turned into four months. Finally in the beginning months of December I was able to return to Oahu and spend the Holiday with the only person I wanted to be with. Finally in March it was time for him to buy an engagement ring, which was difficult since I manage A Zale’s and communicate regularly with the ones on island. So we settled for designing the ring together, but once he got the finished piece he did not put it on my finger right away. Instead he kept it a waiting game driving me crazy. Anytime he had anything planned or reached into his pocket I would get so excited. Finally he had planned a fun date night and I thought to myself “This is it! This is the night!” I spent extra time doing my hair, make up, and picking my outfit. By the end of our fun night he still had not proposed! I was a little upset, but I know he always has something up his sleeves. Finally the day came, the next morning. He is always getting up before the sun due to work, but me I like to sleep. I woke up to him trying to by sly and gentle putting the ring on my finger. I thought I was dreaming! He knew I do not like attention and did not want him to do it in some extravagant way, and to me this way meant so much more. 

    Thomas and I cannot wait to start our journey together. Although we would love to jet away on our honeymoon right away our work schedules do not allow it. We are going to take a three day weekend and spend it exploring the island of Maui a few months after we wed. But for our main honeymoon we will be going to Germany and Italy to visit friends and family that are not able to attend our wedding. 

 We are so truly honored to have been apart of their special day . 

Enjoy,

A Wave of the Wand Photography

Lavender Ridge Wedding Photographer -Jennifer and Jason http://www.awaveofthewand.com/blog/2016/7/lavender-ridge-wedding-photographer--jennifer-and-jason Jennifer and Jason met online. They started off dating ( of course lol ) and fell in love very slowly - then all at once they knew it was true love.  Before Jason proposed to Jennifer he asked her Father for her hand in marriage ( he said yes of course )  Jennifer and Jason took the long route when it came to their relationship ( nice and slow) for their daughter Lucy.  Jason proposed on Friday the 13th in beautiful Lake Tahoe  at the pier overlooking the lake after a romantic dinner.  Shortly after Jason proposed the couple headed home to share the good news of their engagement with Jennifer's family.  Jennifer and Jason worked so hard on their wedding , Making it their "Own" while making sure their friends and family have fun. I am sure you will see just how much fun we had !! It was a beautiful afternoon for a wedding, We did how ever have a few rain clouds hanging around and in case your wondering , It did rain for  a bit ( but after the ceremony) while everyone was enjoying a amazing meal. We had a wonderful day with Jennifer and Jason and their family and we are so truly honored to have been apart of this next journey in their lives. 

Congratulations to the happy couple. 

Enjoy,

Beautiful Carson City Wedding by Carson City Wedding Photographer http://www.awaveofthewand.com/blog/2016/4/beautiful-carson-city-wedding-by-carson-city-wedding-photographer Liza and David said " I do" in beautiful Carson City NV, with their family and friends by their side. The ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Thersa Catholic Church, Followed by a fun filled afternoon at The Plaza Convention Center in Downtown Carson City.  Liza and David met through the military, as they are both service members in the United States Army. They met about 4 years ago when Liza was first stationed at Joint Base Lewis-McChord , in Tacoma WA. David was born and raised in Alaska, and Liza is a Native of Northern Nevada raised in Carson City and born in South Lake Tahoe. Both Liza and David love to travel and enjoy the great Pacific Northwests wildlife with their furry 3 year old buddy ( Germarn Shepard ) named Liebe.  Liza and David will reside in WA as they have recently purchased as home and they are excited to start a family.

​We spent our day with such an amazing loving couple and we were so honored to have been apart of their special day. ​ Liza and David were such a trooper during our time with them. One of my favorite adventures from their wedding day was the quick trip to the local coffee shop we took, so the couple could get a quick snack and drink before we took a few more photos. While at the local coffee shop a sweet couple visit Carson City bought the couple a homemade soap as a wedding gift.  We all had said that was the first gift that the married couple had received. The day's festivities ended with amazingly good food and some good old fashion dancing.

Enjoy,

Stylized Rustic Bridal Session ~ Wilson Common Park~, Washoe Valley, NV http://www.awaveofthewand.com/blog/2016/3/stylized-rustic-bridal-session-wilson-common-park-washoe-valley-nv Happiness is a Butterfly, which when pursued is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

We recently had the pleasure of meeting the beautiful Miss C for her Rustic Bridal Session. The weather had a mind of its own, It was soo cold and windy and at times it would hail or spit rain for a few minutes. Miss C was bound and determined to get the photos she wanted and that's what we did.  We had a blast wind,rain hail and all . It was such much fun and we got so many incredible shots. I hope you enjoy them just as much as we did . 

Enjoy,

My Top 5 Tips Every Couple Should Know for an Awesome Engagement Session. http://www.awaveofthewand.com/blog/2016/1/my-top-5-tips-every-couple-should-know-for-an-awesome-engagement-session  

 

 Howdy Folks,

 Since this is a common question that all of my clients ask  , What should I wear, What should I do to prepare for my upcoming Engagement Session, I thought I would share with you My Top 5 Tips that Every Couple Should Know for their Engagement Session. 

Enjoy,

 

 

#1.) I am horrible at doing my hair and make-up - Okay what i mean is when it comes to those cute Pinterest up do's and make-up  tutorials - I always end up with an epic fail, One of the things I recommend to all of my clients is to Splurge and get your hair and make up done for your big day, ( If your like me and your hair and makeup challenged) It's one less thing to stress about and of course you will look beautiful. 

 

#2.) Add some layered looks to your outfits- get creatvie.  Hats , Sun glasses, scarves , you name it- cute dress with converse- Just remember to have a little fun . Bring "you" to the session.  

 

#3.)  Dress for your location- So you've got that drop dead gorgeous  outfit picked out, but the location you picked has lots of rocks, dirt and tree's , well maybe high heels weren't the best option.  So remember to pick your outfit with your location, If your daring bring the heels :) But if you still have questions, Please feel free to ask- We've got plenty of knowledge to point you in the right direction. 

 

#4.) Location, Location and Location- Why such an emphasis  on location you ask? We'll pick one that represents you and your spouse and your style, The location is just as important as your style, If you are wanting a dressed up to the nines type of session, then the middle of a field might not be the best location - But again we want a location that you are comfortable in and will rock of course. I've got plenty of suggestions if you need some help. 

 

#5.)  Relax- Just remember to relax and have fun .  Enjoy the time and the moment and you will have amazing engagement photos .
