My name is Teddy. I want to be your wedding photographer or videographer, and I want to make your jaws drop. I consider myself a strobist photographer with an eye for naturally lit, stunning photos and videos.
I want to create art with you, and be the one to tell your great story. Every second of your big day is an opportunity to create a dramatic and beautiful keepsake for you to remember forever. I want to get to know you and collaborate to invent your own personalized wedding memories.
Iv’e accommodated couples on just about every style. Whether they were surreal, dramatic, or just fun and simple with natural lighting I alway enjoy the process. Thats the real secret to making great work. LOVE IT! Which comes naturally, especially when your working in this kind of environment were every one is there to celebrate and have a great time.
I shoot Canon, and consistently update my gear inventory with the latest and most cutting edge photo and video-equipment to deliver the best possible photos and videos I can capture. With the highest resolution cameras on the market, and an aspiration to achieve the most technically perfect photos and videos possible, I assure your satisfaction with the final delivery of your photos or videos of your big day.
I also recognize that not all weddings are lavish affairs. I have a soft spot for small, informal weddings and elopements or otherwise non-traditional weddings. If you are in need of a budget Tahoe wedding photographer for a small wedding or elopement of less than three hours, I offer an hourly rate for weddings of this nature and I’m your guy!

About my team
I have many friends that could jump in for this. We’ve all worked on weddings together before and under stand that each client has different needs to accommodate for. If you’d like we can schedule an introduction once I find some one available.
Lake Full of Pictures consist of a small group of videographers and fashion Photographers that we have a history of working in various productions whom we love and trust . But mostly its two brothers Theodore Kushner and Garrett Kushner. Both have over fifteen years experience in Television, Commercials, Fashion, Music Videos, and Movies. We established Lake Full of Pictures in 2017, but we’ve been shooting Wedding since we were going to film school back in 2005. It was only till now that weddings became our main focus. Before for then we were a full time Production Company called O-BeaR-O Films. We’ve directed everything from a Butterfingers commercial to a Major Lazar video with over 90 million views.
But lets talk weddings. Why do we love shooting weddings? Its fun! Its easy! Its something new every day even if were at a familiar location. Everyone is always happy and ready for there glamor shot…. Well almost everyone. Which is why we know as directors how important it is to be intuitive and communicate to keep everyone happy.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How would you describe your style and approach to a wedding day?
My efforts on the wedding day are spent primarily on a documentary, hands-off approach with a mix of creative scenic couple photos that give you a sense of your surroundings. To sum it up, I want you to be able to feel and re-live the moments of your wedding day for years to come. My team and I take a relaxed approach so that you and your guests feel comfortable and enjoy the moment. We want to feel as though we are guests at your wedding and we want to laugh, cry and get down with you on the dance floor.
Whats your style of shooting video?
Our style is Simple Elegance. We deliver a classic, timeless edit rather than the frenetic, in-your-face, MTV look which appears to be a recent trend. We overshoot everything, which allows us the most creative latitude in the edit bay. I am passionate about getting the best possible angle and composition at your wedding- my girlfriend Brittney sometimes brushes off leaves covering me after the photo session because I’ve been deep in the bushes getting that incredible shot of the bride and groom.
Do you take detail, family and bridal party photos?
Absolutely! I realize that these photos are important as well, so we make sure that every detail of your wedding is photographed. Prior to the wedding, I will gather a list of family formals.
What is your backup plan?
Along with an extensive list of photographers that I can call on, my additional photographer would take over on the wedding day in the unlikely event that something were to happen to me. I put full trust in my second photographers and trust that they would be able to step-in in case of an emergency.
Its a Xmas miracle! We now shoot our weddings with the Black Magic URSA PRO. Many professionals have told me ” Thats way more camera than you’ll ever need to shoot a wedding video” and my response is ” I suppose if you don’t have the vision or the passion to make wedding videos into wedding movies”. But I really want to take each wedding movie as far as i can, to bring the most cinematic perspective possible. Welcome to the family Ursa!
We are constantly updating our gear for our wedding couples to be able to offer them the absolute best quality currently available. We film all weddings in High Definition with both Canon DSLR’s and camcorders. Each has it’s advantages: DSLR’s render a beautiful filmlike quality, and camcorders are much better at capturing fast action sequences such as a bouquet toss or a walk down the aisle. My newest piece is a fabulous Canon 5D Mark4 DSLR, which renders fabulous footage, even in low light. No expense is spared in providing the best quality equipment for our wedding couples!
How do we book you for our international destination wedding?
We would love to travel internationally for your wedding. In order to make the process as seamless as possible, we prefer to arrive to your destination location two days prior to your wedding. This allows us to arrive on time in case of flight delays and the ability to scout your location and the surrounding areas. If you plan to have a wedding rehearsal or session before your wedding, we would also love to be a part of this celebration and photograph it for you. I take care of all airfare, hotel and car rental bookings (if needed) and will let you know how much our travel fees are based on your destination of choice at the time of booking.
We went to a wedding recently and the videographers were VERY obtrusive. Are you?
Couples often tell us after the wedding day that they hardly remembered seeing us at their event. To me, that’s a compliment. We dress in black. We dont overwhelm you with multiple videographers or hover around you with a steadicam during your first dance. We prefer to record your day as transparently as possible, and never become the center of attention. Your wedding will be filmed from the perspective of your guests- we are very sensitive to not block their view- they have often traveled hundreds of miles to celebrate your day.
What have you learned in over two decades of professionally filming weddings?
That we can never be satisfied with the work we produced last month or last year. I spend several hours each week researching current trends and products in our industry. I also attend national educational seminars where possible to share ideas and inspiration with the worlds best wedding cinematographers.
I also realize that we produce beautiful wedding films not only for you and your spouse, but for your children, for your children’s children, for your posterity that may view your wedding 100 years from now. One study found that over 500 of your descendants will likely have a direct interest in viewing your wedding film by the 8th generation. That’s a BIG group. Your wedding film will be a treasured family heirloom- passed on from generation to generation. That motivates me to produce outstanding work.

The alpine town of South Lake Tahoe, located on Lake Tahoe’s southern end, first expressed an interest in hosting a community college back in 1964, a year before the City of South Lake Tahoe was first established.
On March 5, 1974, voters approved the formation of a community college district with 66% of the vote, and the first Board of Trustees was elected. Dr. James Duke was hired by the Board in September 1974 as the college’s first president.
LTCC opened its doors for the first time on Sept. 18, 1975, in a converted motel on Highway 50. In its first year, 119 classes were offered to 1,407 students. The first graduating class of Spring 1976 consisted of 11 students.
The acquisition of a site for a permanent campus was pursued vigorously in 1979. The purchase of a parcel on Al Tahoe Blvd. owned by the Shell Oil Company was negotiated and on Dec. 27, 1979, the title to the 164-acre plot in the center of South Lake Tahoe was recorded in the name of Lake Tahoe Community College.
The West Campus was opened in Fall 1982. It provided space for a library and three more classrooms in addition to what the Highway 50 campus provided. Eventually an expanded art lab and an intimate “Collegiate Theatre” were also included at the new site. This allowed for more space at the original converted motel campus.
On July 8, 1986, a groundbreaking ceremony was held on the permanent campus site and construction began on the first phase of the college master plan.
The college moved into its present location in October 1988.
Passing the Baton
On June 30, 1990, Dr. James W. Duke, the founding president, retired after overseeing the construction of the first permanent building for the college on Al Tahoe. Dr. Guy Lease was selected as his successor and leader of the next phase of construction at LTCC. After 17 years of exemplary service and overseeing the construction of several new building phases of the college, Dr. Lease retired in 2007. The college hired Dr. Paul T. Killpatrick in July 2008 as the college’s third president. Dr. Killpatrick served the college for two years before moving on to another presidency in Washington state. The college’s fourth superintendent/president, Dr. Kindred Murillo, was hired in July 2011. Dr. Murillo spearheaded a successful bond campaign called Measure F in November 2014, resulting in $55 million in funding coming to campus over the next 10 years. She also oversaw the acquisition of a $5.8 million donation from South Tahoe local Lisa Maloff, which will result in the Robert and Lisa Maloff University Center coming to LTCC’s campus in 2018. This structure will house LTCC’s expanding bachelor’s degree programs. Dr. Murillo left LTCC to take a presidency position at Southwest College in January 2017. That’s when LTCC hired its fifth superintendent/president, Jeff DeFranco. Jeff had served as Vice President of Administrative Services at LTCC since 2013 before taking on his new position.
The Campus Grows
The Child Development Center opened in September 1993 to provide care for 46 children, and for use as a teaching lab for the Early Childhood Education program.
The new Technology Wing was dedicated on Jan. 2, 1996, and the College Theatre opened in March 1996. In June 2005, the theatre was named after LTCC’s first president, Dr. James Duke.
With everything but Physical Education now located on the main Al Tahoe campus, the Board decided to lease four moveable classrooms. These “Garden Classrooms” were in place for the fall quarter of 1996, bringing the entire college to one location for the first time.
In 2002, the Physical Education building and Student Center opened. The 26,000-square-foot Physical Education building includes a gymnasium, fitness education center, dance studio, and locker rooms. The culinary arts program moved into its own teaching kitchen in the 10,000-square-foot Student Center.
In 2006, the campus opened a new 27,000-square-foot library and the Haldan Art Gallery. The library was renamed the Roberta L. Mason Library in 2014, in honor of LTCC’s first Board of Trustees president, Roberta Mason.
In Fall 1994, LTCC’s men’s and women’s cross-country running teams first competed in the Golden Valley Conference. Thanks to LTCC’s Kokanee mascot, cries of “Go Fish!” from fans became common. In the fall of 1995, women’s volleyball was added to the intercollegiate athletic program, and the men’s cross-country team won first place in the Golden Valley Conference. In 1999, the college added an intercollegiate Nordic ski team to its program.
After years without college athletics, formal sports returned to campus with the launch of the men’s and women’s intercollegiate soccer teams in Fall 2014. With the new teams came a new logo and mascot – the LTCC Coyote. Both teams are in the Golden Valley Conference. Meet LTCC’s coaches and players, and find out more about how athletics can play a part in your college experience.
Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACCJC), a regional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education and the U.S. Department of Education.
LTCC was originally granted accreditation in January 1979. Accreditation status has been maintained through a regular process of self-evaluation and review by the ACCJC. The University of California, the California State Universities, and other accredited colleges and universities give full credit for equivalent and transferable courses satisfactorily completed at Lake Tahoe Community College.

Our Mission at Lake Humane Society is to provide a gentle and caring haven for the homeless, abandoned, and injured animals of Lake County and persevere in defending and protecting animal life through education, integrity, and leadership.
What that means to us is that healthy and adoptable animals stay with us or in foster homes until they are adopted. Our staff works with the community to rescue homeless animals, promote adoption, education and advocacy for animals in need.
We do not receive any government funding nor are we funded or operated by any national humane organization. We rely solely on contributions from individuals and local businesses that care about animals and our service to the community. We also depend on the dedication of our volunteers who work alongside our staff to help us care for animals, deliver our programs, and govern our organization.
Providing a safe haven is an important part of our mission, but it’s only one part. Our vision is to continue to grow and develop the programs and services we offer while working towards preventing animal homelessness and finding compassionate homes for thousands of cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, and other small animals each year.
Providing an avenue whereby individuals can call authorities on an anonymous basis to report on current happening crimes or give information on previous crimes that may lead to an arrest or conviction. This includes police and fire activities.
In 1980 the Secret Witness Program was formed as a result of the death of teenager Richard E. Swanson. Richard was killed during a robbery of a South Lake Tahoe gas station. Businesses and citizens raised nearly $10,000 as reward for information to an arrest of Richard’s killer.
This tragedy created the base for what has become a very successful law enforcement tool in South Lake Tahoe and surrounding communities. Since 1980, the program’s directors, with the support and blessing of Richard’s parents, have solicited the support of the South Lake Tahoe businesses and individuals to make the rewards more appealing to potential anonymous tipsters.
Because police officers are often unable to know everything that is going on in the community, citizen participation in law enforcement and crime prevention is crucial. The Secret Witness Program is designed to provide incentives to community members for becoming involved in crime prevention and resolution.
Reward money is drawn from a pot that is funded by donations from local businesses and individuals. Secret Witness Program funds are disbursed and monitored by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of Lake Tahoe community members. The funds in the Secret Witness Program are used to pay for information leading to the arrest of suspects or the recovery of property.
Make an Anonymous Tip
When a citizen or visitor to the community becomes aware of a criminal activity, the individual can make an anonymous phone call to a hotline 24 hours a day, seven days a week and provide the information. To become a secret witness, please call the Secret Witness Hotline at (530) 541-6800.
In March 1978 issue of Women’s Day magazine, Cheryl Millham saw a photo of a woman holding a baby raccoon. The woman, Jinny Collins, was one of the founders of Wildlife Rescue, a wildlife rehabilitation organization in Los Altos, California. The article reported that Wildlife Rescue was preparing to hold a training seminar to teach local citizens how to care for orhpaned and injured wild birds and animals. So, Cheryl called Jinny and signed up for the class in April 1978.
Cheryl and Tom Millham, their daughter Connie and their friend B.J. headed to the training seminar. When they returned to South Lake Tahoe, they began contacting entities that would come in contact with orphaned and injured wildlife, informed them of their plan to raise and rehabilitate these animals, and asked for their help.
The rest is history. Nearly 40 years later, LTWC is still committed to raising, rehabilitating and releasing orphaned and injured wildlife. We have cared for more than 24,000 critters and have released over 15,000 back to the wild, a 63% release rate — a statistic we are very proud of.
Without the wonderful support of the hundreds of generous volunteers and donors who have worked with us since our beginning, LTWC’s work not be possible.
Raise, Rehabilitate, Release
Our mission at Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care is simple: We give mother nature a helping hand by raising and rehabilitating orphaned and injured wildlife so they may be released back to the wild.
Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, Inc. (LTWC) is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Our Federal ID number is 94-2799765.
We are an independent, nonprofit volunteer organization whose function is to raise, rehabilitate and release orphaned and injured wild birds and animals.
LTWC operates under permits issued by California Fish & Game and the United States Department of the Interior & Wildlife Service. No fee is charged for any bird or wild animal brought to the center, nor is any wild animal refused care.
From a handful of people in 1978 with an idea to help wildlife in their area, LTWC has grown to an organization that now provides a service to more than nine counties in California and Nevada surrounding the Lake Tahoe region.

You may have heard the saying, “A burden heavy to one is borne lightly by many.” This is at the core of the Moose organization and what makes us unique in our Lodges, local communities and charitable “cities” that we support. Our roots can be traced to 1888 and the founder of the Moose, Dr. Henry Wilson, who successfully established the first Lodge in Louisville, Kentucky. In the early years, the Moose was to serve a modest goal of offering men an opportunity to gather socially, to care for one another’s needs and celebrate life together.
Since those early years, our fraternal organization rapidly expanded to include valuable service to our communities, care for children and teens in need at Mooseheart Child City & School , a 1,000-acre campus, located 40 miles west of Chicago and care for our senior members at Moosehaven, a 70-acre retirement community near Jacksonville, Florida.
With a combined membership of over 1,000,000 members in the Loyal Order of Moose and Women of the Moose, our presence is felt in over 1,500 communities across all 50 states and four Canadian provinces, plus Great Britain and Bermuda. The Moose organization contributes between $75 to $100 million worth of community service (counting monetary donations, volunteer hours worked and miles driven) annually.
In addition to Mooseheart and Moosehaven, the Moose fraternity’s Heart of the Community effort is multifaceted with internally developed programs like Tommy Moose. Tommy Moose aids in helping children overcome fears and anxiety during times of stress. Donated to law enforcement, fire fighters and other emergency workers, Tommy Moose plush dolls are presented to children in various traumatic situations. The external focus of our service is directed towards many worthwhile national charities, a few of which are: Special Olympics North America, Salvation Army, Safe Surfin’USA Foundation, Big Brothers-Big Sisters, and St. Jude.
In our local Lodges, you will find a wide array of activities to participate in both as an individual and as a family. From holiday parties, dances, sports, themed dinners and live entertainment, the Moose has much to offer. Membership can mean different things to different people. You are the one determining what you want to get out of the organization, and what you want to give back.
The Moose is about celebrating life together, serving those in need within our local community, supporting our children at Mooseheart and standing by our senior members at Moosehaven. To find out more information on how to be a Moose, click on the link below.
