Destination Wedding at Acre Resort

In the Lake Tahoe forest, just steps away from their cozy cabin, Candace and Sean agreed upon on an impromptu Lake Tahoe forest engagement photoshoot that turned out to be as unique and fun-filled as their own love story. Opting for comfort over couture, they wore their favorite matching grey sweatsuits, blending cozy vibes with the natural beauty around them. This wasn’t your average photo session; it was a spontaneous celebration of love, laughter, and the great outdoors.

The Magic in 20 Minutes

With the day winding down and the forest bathed in blue hour, Candace and Sean had just 20 minutes to capture their moment. But who says you need hours? They made every second count, letting their love take the lead. They danced without music, laughed without jokes, and embraced without prompts. I was hidden in the shadows of the tall trees, clicking away, capturing the essence of their relationship: joyous, genuine, and utterly in love.

This session was a testament to the fact that sometimes, the best memories are made when you’re just being yourselves, having fun. Their laughter echoed through the forest, creating a soundtrack to their love story that was every bit as real as the towering pines around them.

Lake Tahoe: The Ultimate Backdrop for Romance

Lake Tahoe, with its crystal-clear waters and panoramic mountain views, is a couple’s paradise. It’s a place where nature’s grandeur meets the sweet, intimate moments of couples in love, creating a perfect setting for engagement and proposal photos.

Top Spots for Picture-Perfect Moments in Lake Tahoe:

  1. Emerald Bay State Park: Known for its breathtaking vistas, it’s the perfect place for couples wanting a dramatic, natural backdrop.
  2. Sand Harbor: The crystal-clear waters and smooth, granite boulders offer a serene setting for romantic shots.
  3. Squaw Valley: If you love the idea of having rugged mountains in your photos, Squaw Valley’s alpine scenery won’t disappoint.
  4. Fallen Leaf Lake: For those seeking a quieter, more secluded spot, the peaceful shores of Fallen Leaf Lake are ideal.
  5. Private Cabin: Staying in a local cabin? For a totally private and at-home experience, I can come to you for photos!

I take my craft seriously, and that means serving you in all aspects on your wedding day, and the days leading up to it.
