This summer’s incredible wedding circuit lead us to Reno, Nevada on Saturday for Jeremy and Lizzie’s big day at Wolf Run Golf Club.
I’ve known these two for a long time and I was honored when they chose us to shoot the wedding. But more than anything I was ecstatic to be there because, as you’ll see in the photo booth images below, these two bring the party with them wherever they go.
The intimate ceremony took place in a small nook below the course’s 9th hole, secluded from golfers and the inevitable onlookers that lurk around at many other golf course weddings.
After the ceremony, we jumped into golf carts with the bridal party and made some awesome portraits of the whole group on the backside of the 8th green. There were golfers of various abilities playing the hole as we tried different poses and lighting schemes, and a ball nearly took out one of the bridesmaids. But as usual, luck was on our side and for all intents and purposes, there were no casualties. Josh will have those images up on Thursday so check back in.
After a romp around Wolf Run’s back nine, we headed back to the club for the introduction and some speeches. There were some fine speeches about Jeremy and Lizzie and their relationship, including a tribute to the groom for his college project detailing the real story behind the murder of Tupac, and an anecdote about the day the bride and groom were thrown out of the Oakland A’s stadium for bringing in their own alcohol.
After dinner and some dancing, we grabbed Jeremy and Lizzie for a few sunset portraits. Not every couple is willing to cut out from their wedding night as it starts revving up after dinner, but these two were into it and the results were awesome. We made several images of them on the rolling fairways above Reno as the sun set over Lake Tahoe to the west, and the eastern hills of Washoe Valley glowed red.
Soon the sun was down and we went back to the clubhouse to get the party started. We got the photo booth going and, along with the dance floor, it became the life of the party. We captured several classic moments that need no explanation-just look below.
It ends with a shot of the guestbook, done on a canvas print from their engagement session with Josh about a month ago.
That’s all for today. Josh captured a lot more that isn’t posted here, including the tractor portrait session with the guys, the bridal party portraits, and dance-floor debauchery. Check back then.
