I photograph people.
I have captured more then 300 weddings over the years and am passionate about making beautiful images of people in LOVE.
I am a Lake Tahoe based wedding photographer. I established the boutique-style studio in 2000.
I use Film and Digital formats to best document every details, real emotion, relationships, smiling faces and action during your wedding day.
I will not direct the flow of your day, make you slow down so I can get the shot.
I will not ask you to say cheese!
Yes I will capture portraits, the process is fluid, casual and if you trust me, it will be beautiful.
I search for light, beauty.
Light that falls just right, brightens, puts a mood on things.
My images are real life with a little punch. No gimmicks. I call it:
FUN + FRESH + VIBRANT fashion documentary editorial style with a pinch of Fine Art.
I love the texture, dimension and feel it gives my images. The format has survived the test of time, remember 8 track, VHS?
My images have been featured in a multiple of magazines and blogs such as Style Me pretty, Martha Stewart, the Knot, Wedding Bells…. I am a member of WPPI, PPA, WPJA , Fearless Photographer and have current insurance.
I would be truly honored to be part of your day.
“Annie, I cant even begin to tell you how beautiful everything is. We could not have been happier opening up the package. (Even Aaron has only the nicest things to say!). You are extremely talented and professional, and full of surprises! Everything is extraordinary. Thank you for making our wedding so special. Six months down the line and I feel like Im back in Tahoe again. We have nothing but impeccable things to say about you and your work. I promise to mention you to everyone I know that is getting married. Thanks a million!”

“Annie X is the most amazing photographer in the world! Every person who has seen my wedding pictures says they look like they belong in a bridal magazine. She has an amazing ability to capture spontaneous moments and make them last a lifetime. She is the best.”

“Annie X is incredible!!! Her style and vision is gorgeous, unique and tasteful. Very classy. She was just a pleasure to work with, made us feel very comfortable, and took the most amazing pictures I have ever seen. She was just the right amount of bossy to get all of the family photos we wanted, but didn’t at all dictate the events of the wedding. She even managed to catch some special moments when we didn’t even know she was there! Annie truly captured the essence of our wedding. We have had so many compliments from all of our friends and family. She was incredibly prompt with getting us a fabulous digital slide show to share just days after the wedding, and the proofs came quickly after. The mini pocket photo book was a special treat. The only downside is that she took so many amazing photos that it’s nearly impossible to choose! Annie X is the consummate professional. Worth every penny. If you want spectacular photos for your wedding, family, or special event, look no further.”

“OH MY GOODNESS, YES!!! Of course I’d recommend Annie!!! She is amazing and her photos are BRILLIANT!!! I can’t stop looking at her photos – they take my breath away. These are the memories we will be able to keep and share forever and they are priceless! I’ve been hearing from those who see our pictures that they are the most beautiful wedding photos they’ve ever seen, but that’s only because they haven’t seen the other weddings Annie has shot! ;) Truth is, she is so much more than a “wedding photographer.” She is an artist who kindly will apply her artistry to the most important event in your life! You will not have “wedding photos” – they will be magazine, photojournalistic, pieces of art! I can’t wait to do other photo sessions with Annie – she brings out the beauty in everything she shoots!”

“Annie photographed our wedding at PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn. She did an amazing job. Seriously, this woman has energy and talent! She and her assistant were all over the place … jumping on tables to get the best shots, etc. Annie was a pleasure to work with and any bride and groom would be lucky to have her snap their wedding. ”
