Lake Tahoe wedding engagement photography

Most couples I work with I never get to meet until the engagement session – the same was the story with Nick and Kayla – after phone calls and emails, we finally had a chance to meet in Lake Tahoe for some beers and photos.

Nick and Kayla’s Lake Tahoe wedding this summer will be on the Lake’s shore – so we decided to look for something that still had a Tahoe feel, but wasn’t on the shore – that’s how we ended up on the River doing photos in the snow! These two were game to be spontaneous as we ventured into the snow and across the river.

I love it when couples are game to go off-trail and get a little dirty or in this case, cold and wet. Nick and Kayla were champs to tromp off into the snow!

As much as I like to be a part of the adventure, sometimes I find it’s good to step back and let couples have moments by themselves – Nick and Kayla were able to relax and do their thing while I captured the moments.

Probably the biggest reason I photograph weddings is that I get to experience things about people – like how they light each other up with their personalities, creating smiles you wouldn’t quite see otherwise.Lake Tahoe weding engagement 05
