Wedding Photography

Wedding Photography from Image Angels, owned and operated by our daughter Karen Linsley

When deciding who will capture your special day to enjoy in the years ahead you should consider several things beyond price alone. First and foremost is the quality of the work. But to decide this you must also consider how well well the photographer will work with you, your family, and your wedding party. This is one area where Image Angels excels beyond the competition. You will be on a first name basis long before your wedding day. Ideally, you will still have a relationship long after your wedding day. The goal at Image Angels is to forge a relationship that lasts through the years so that they are your first choice for all your subsequent photography needs.

Wedding Videography

Capture all the tears and laughter with a professional videographer. Packages range from just the ceremony, the ceremony and the reception, or the whole day including the wedding party getting ready. Additionally you can choose the number of cameras covering the various events.

Wedding Cakes and Catering

The food served at your wedding will be a topic of conversation for all your guests. Your cake will be the centerpiece of many of your photos and memories. Below is our favorite caterer and baker in the Lake Tahoe area that will make your event the talk of the town.

Wedding Flowers

Choosing your wedding flowers means more than just picking a centerpiece for the tables. You should also consider decorations for your ceremony, your bouquet, flowers for your hair, cake, your bridesmaids and your groomsmen. In most cases you can count on Lake Tahoe florists being able to obtain whatever flower are available in your area. Below are links to reputable South lake Tahoe florists.

Wedding Formal Wear

It is quite convenient for the whole wedding party to rent tuxedos & gowns locally. Have your groomsmen get their measurements taken by a professional in their hometown. Then be sure to try on the tuxedoes, shoes, etc. prior to the big day so any adjustments can be made. Try the following local dealer.

Wedding Jewelers

If you're thing about getting engaged and haven't made the move yet, consider the following retailers for buying your engagement ring. If you're already engaged they are a great place to get your bands. Last minute adjustments can also be made.

Wedding Hair & Beauty

We proudly recommend Sessions Salon to fulfill your wedding hair needs. There you can relax, enjoy a sip of wine, and watch beautiful Lake Tahoe while your entire bridal party is tended to with care and experience. Plus they have a really cool web site.

You may also want to consider keeping relaxed with a massage in the week leading up to your day. Take more time for yourself and call a licensed massage therapist. Leave the driving to us and let us bring our portable spa to you. Lisa Altrocchi is available at Lake Tahoe (775-832-4440) and Gini Garcia is located in Carson City (775-883-4435)  to set up that special time for you.
