Emily and Ryan planned an adventurous rehearsal dinner for their family and friends at Piney River Ranch. It was quite a trek getting up there, the dirt road was long without a lot of signs. I often questioned if I was going the right way! Once I arrived I walked around to scout out the location. I instantly knew why Emily’s family had been going to Piney Lake for years, the jaw dropping views and scenery were spectacular. I love photographing rehearsal dinners, it gives me a chance to meet the family and wedding party prior to the BIG day. Everyone is relaxed and shares stories that don’t usually get told on the wedding day. There is something so intimate about sharing in a smaller gathering, that I can’t get enough of, this rehearsal dinner was no exception.
