Spring has sprung and even though it seems like the longest stretch of winter Tahoe has seen this year is happening just now in mid-May, wedding season is just around the corner! I have been more than lax in my wedding blog posts over the winter. Thankfully, Monique has filled in the gaps with some of the wonderful Lake Tahoe weddings we photographed together, but I thought I should get a couple of my solo weddings up before things get crazy again. ( I was also busy keeping up on our other non wedding related blog where we post images from our travels, and a lot of Tahoe and Sierra landscape images. If you’d like to check it out, click on over to Tahoelight.com ) This wedding for Courtney and Phil was a wonderful wedding at the PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn, a venue we shoot at quite often. Courtney and Phil had their first look before the ceremony, and then decided to take the wedding party off-site for a few fun photos along the fence-line in the Squaw Valley meadow. One of the neat things about this wedding is that I shot the best man’s wedding a few years back and it was a total surprise when I showed up to photograph the guys getting ready to see him in the room. I guess it is a small world sometimes. We wish you all the best Courtney and Phil!

Winters Creek Lodge wedding at Mt. Rose Resort

By Monique

Jamie and Chris were married at the Winters Creek Lodge at the Mt. Rose Ski Resort. This was one of those rare days that had an epic Tahoe sunset! Jamie and Chris had a first look on the patio, and then we drove just around the corner to get some portraits of them at the base of the chutes. It is so lush and green there in the summer.

West Shore Cafe winter wedding photography

By Monique and Scott

Kelly and Jordan’s winter wedding at the West Shore Cafe was, simply put, So Much Fun! The weather during the day was great. It was sunny one minute, with wind and snow flurries the next. This went on for most of the day, and made for some great weather images during the pre ceremony portraits and the ceremony at the end of the pier. And by the time the wedding reception moved indoors, the snow storm got more intense and it started sticking to the ground. Since we really did not have much of a winter this season, everyone was so happy about the snow. The evening came to a close with an all out snow ball fight on the deck. We even got pelted several times ( on purpose too!) as we were documenting the snow flying through the air. This wedding is a perfect example of the importance of a wedding photographer’s ability to think and react quickly to different weather situations that can occur here at Lake Tahoe. We are prepared for it all, and actually really love it when the weather gets crazy!

Mourelatos wedding photography at Lake Tahoe

By Monique

Here is another sneak peek for you. Since we recently updated our main website with some new content, including this Mourelatos wedding, I just wanted to post a few teasers here in hopes that you will click on over to the main site to see the complete story. Mourelatos is one of my favorite low key lake front venues at Lake Tahoe. There are plenty of beach games set up, and the entire resort is occupied by the wedding guests, giving it a weekend family vacation feel. Every couple I have photographed here has been so genuine and down to earth, Merry and Tim included. Their wedding had one of The Best dance parties/ singalong-to-80’s-songs I have ever seen. At one point, the guys were even doing “air basketball!” on the dance floor.

To see the complete wedding day story (including all those crazy dancing images), follow this link: Mourelatos Lake Tahoe wedding

I met up with long time family friend Trevor and his fiancé Larissa last Sunday for their Donner Summit engagement session. The couple loves snow sports and was hoping for a snowy winter session, but this year’s snow levels did not cooperate. I did find one mountain peak with some patches still left to use as a backdrop for a few wintery images, but other than that, we just had fun from the train tracks in Truckee to Donner Lake and all the way up to the abandoned train trestles along the hillside above the Donner Summit Rainbow Bridge.
