    About
    I graduated from the Art Institute of Colorado in 2006 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in photography. Immediately upon graduation, I opened Kendall Price Photography and started photographing weddings and portraits. 2016 marks our TENTH year in business! I look back on these past ten years with so much gratitude. I can’t thank you enough for inviting me into your homes to photograph your new baby. For trusting me to be the only person in the room with you as you are about to walk down the aisle and say, ‘I do.’ For documenting your growing families, and the highlights of your life. I am so appreciative and I look forward to the next 10 years!

Eagle Falls Engagement Session at Emerald Bay Lake Tahoe

Aaron and Julia chose to have engagement pictures taken in South Lake Tahoe at Eagle Falls in Emerald Bay.  It has been a few years since I have taken pictures there, so I was eager to get back for their engagement session.  After taking these, it makes me even more excited for their wedding this fall!  Here are a few favorites from their Lake Tahoe engagement session at Emerald Bay . . .

West Shore Cafe Wedding | Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

Last month I found myself back at my favorite wedding venue in Lake Tahoe, The West Shore Cafe.  The big windows overlooking the lake, the lanterns, the view of the Lake Tahoe from the deck and pier make it unbeatable.  It is such a beautiful venue that I always look forward to photographing at, this time for Robert and Allexsis’s wedding day.  These two came to Lake Tahoe from Fresno to get married and met in back in high school when they were in FFA together.

 

We started the day getting a few detail shots as well as photographing Robert and Allexsis getting ready . . .

Instead of doing a First Look with Robert, Allexsis chose to do a First Look with her father and brother prior to the wedding ceremony.  It was emotional and beautiful!

After the First Look, it was time for the ceremony to take place on the South Lawn next to the West Shore Cafe . . .

Afterwards, we took a few portraits while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour . . .

A few of the reception details that made Robert and Allexsis’s day their own.  Allexsis loves donuts as much as I do!

My favorite part of every reception – the TOASTS!  They made the guests laugh and cry and were so, so good!

Then it was time to get down on the dance floor . . .

Congratulations to Robert and Allexsis!  May these photos give you the best memories of the start of your new life together!  XO

Las Vegas Wedding – DragonRidge Country Club

Although I’ve been lucky to travel to different destinations to photograph weddings, this is the first wedding I’ve ever photographed in Las Vegas.  I was spoiled with beautiful weather that was not too hot, the kindest and most easy-going bride and groom, and a beautiful venue that overlooked the Las Vegas strip.  Brandon and Amanda were married at DragonRidge Country Club and it was a beautiful setting for their Las Vegas wedding.  I couldn’t ask for a better way to start the 2018 wedding season!

Amanda got ready in a suite at Green Valley Ranch just minutes from DragonRidge Country Club.  It was a beautiful setting for some photos of her getting ready in anticipation of her big day. . .

 

I saw the sunlight pouring into the room and knew this was the spot where she had to get her dress on.  My favorite photo of the day . . .

Amanda seeing her uncle for the first time on her wedding day . . .

I also got to take a few quick photos of the guys prior to the ceremony at DragonRidge Country Club . . .

The bouquets were made of white roses dipped in gold from Tiger Lily . . .

Immediately following the ceremony we took a quick ride on a golf cart to get some photos in a couple different locations during the cocktail hour . . .

Then it was time for some fun with the help of Sound Fusion . . .

Check out this view from the reception!

 

Congratulations Brandon and Amanda!  Thanks for having me come down to Las Vegas to photograph your day.

Best of Weddings | 2016-2017

As every year comes to a close, I love taking a look back at the weddings I photographed and picking out a few favorite photographs.  Different images become a favorite of mine for many reasons.  Sometimes the light is what speaks to me.  It could also be the pop of color that draws me in.  It could be a new location I’ve never photographed in that speaks to me when I look at the photo.  Often, it is a photograph that was really challenging to take technically because of the location or time of day.  Whatever the reason, here are a handful of my favorite photographs from the weddings I’ve photographed this year.

Tahoe Donner Wedding | Truckee California Wedding Photographer

The last wedding I photographed this year was at the Lodge at Tahoe Donner in Truckee.  It was a wonderful wedding to end the year with because  Tim and Becka were pure joy to photograph and I loved all the details throughout their day.  Becka definitely did her homework on Pinterest to find all kinds of unique details to bring their wedding day to life!  Here are some favorite images from their day.

We starting the day taking pictures of Tim and Becka getting ready at separate houses near Donner Lake . . .

 

Tim and Becka chose to do a First Sight and take the majority of their photos prior to the wedding ceremony.  We started at the house Becka got ready at with Donner Lake in the distance . . .

 

. . . then we took a few photographs next to the golf course at the Lodge at Tahoe Donner.

I loved all the ceremony details from the programs, to the special seating signage, to the chandelier . . .

As guests were being seating for the reception, we quick took a few more photos because the light was so yummy!

I always love photographing in this big white tent at the Lodge at Tahoe Donner.  It’s so pretty and the details were AMAZING!!!

 

Before I headed out, we took a few more portraits at dusk for a completely different look and feel . . .
