Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer Chris Werner

I am a Lake Tahoe wedding photographer with a modern, photojournalistic approach. I see beauty in the authentic, unscripted moments of a wedding day.

Some wedding days are sunny. Others are blessed with rain. In either event, weddings tend to bring out the best in everyone.

No matter how your wedding story unfolds, I would love to be there to photograph your big day.
