Lake Tahoe Wedding Locations


Squaw Valley is such a rad and special place - there aren't too many places on your wedding day where you can be surrounded by mountains that you feel like you can reach out and touch, a meadow with an epic fence you can walk out to, sit on, and take pictures next too, trails, hiking, biking, horses, even a golf course!

Squaw Valley Weddings always win, and there are three spots that make for the perfect wedding location! These Squaw Valley wedding venues deliver and we'll for sure be able to create wedding photos that show off just how special your wedding day was in this unique location.

Resort at Squaw Creek:

Squaw Alpine Mountain Weddings


South Lake Tahoe:

As much as I photograph South Lake Tahoe wedding photos on property, a huge part of the time, I'm just sniping on their public pier! They have a GREAT location surrounded by forest, trees, lake, pier, forest, grass - anything you want, it's at your finger tips - plus the inside of this historic Tahoe wedding location is perfection for the mountain rustic look that is natural to the region.

If you want an EPIC wedding sunset in south Lake Tahoe elopement locations, this view will do you right every time. Plus, you get a tram ride up that's a total blast!!!

Emerald Bay State Park

Private, "secluded" while still being super accessible - this "secret" spot just to the side of the normal public access parking area is a local's favorite - they sometimes even put up signs blocking others from using it because they love it so much - but with a simple permit, the space could be yours and no one is to tell you otherwise on your wedding day. I'm stoked to help guide you in your national forest wedding permit if you need it for this special South Lake Tahoe wedding location.

Twenty Mile House (Graeagle)

Just a short drive from Truckee is a RAD region for epic mountain wedding locations that seems to get all tossed under the name of Graeagle. Twenty Mile House is one of my two favorite wedding venues near Graeagle - they've got woods, lawn, historic home, barn, railroad tracks, river, it's all here and then some. Every time you're on property, you're going to find something new to enjoy!

Chalet View Lodge (Graeagle)

I've stayed at Chalet View Lodge and I'm on their list - but sadly I haven't been able to photograph a wedding on property. BUT - this property is an EPIC property - golf, bicycle pump track, restaurant, bar, great rooms, pool, trees, this wedding venue wins on so many levels - you will for sure love your experience and we'll create some epic photos!!!

Northstar - Zephyr Lodge

8,000' elevation makes for a GREAT wedding venue - and Northstar's wedding location at Zephyr Lodge is a huge win for your wedding ceremony - wild flowers, views for DAYS, outdoor deck to enjoy drinks, massive room for your dinner and dancing, woods/forest, sunsets that are not topped at too many other locations - I can't say enough about Zephyr Lodge weddings - it's a blast and you even get to ride the ski lift! Plus, whenever I mountain bike northstar - I get new ideas of photos we can do at Zephyr! Who's gonna be my first mountain biking wedding??

Hyatt Incline Village

This photo is a short drive from Hyatt and I take most of my Hyatt couples here - you probably know the location, but if not, if you're planning your wedding at the Hyatt Incline, hit me up and I'll help you find the best location for your couple's photos at sunset. This is also where I learned how to create EPIC milky way photos from a guy (he was the officiant for the wedding) who also is a photographer and had JUST landed the cover of National Geographic for a milky way shot over Tahoe. That all said, Hyatt does it right and has a selection of great locations for your wedding photos!
