4 Reasons on Why you want the same photographer for your engagement session and wedding day

4 Reasons on Why you want the same photographer for your engagement session and wedding day

It makes a world difference having your wedding photographer also do  your engagement photos. Sure, you may have already had a friend do some "engagement photos" for you, or you'll save some money by skipping out on photos. There are more reasons behind an engagement session than just having more photos to show.

I’ve made a list of 4 important reasons on why you should have engagement photos done and more importantly on why you should have the same photographer for both your engagement session and wedding day.

Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Ski Resort Wedding: Thuy + Greg

Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Ski Resort Wedding: Thuy + Greg

With a ceremony on top of a mountain overlooking Lake Tahoe, it couldn't have been a more pretty view. Who wouldn't want to get married at the top of Heavenly with a view of all of Lake Tahoe? This definitely called for me to bring out my pink drone and capture all the beauty! Her ceremony included the CUTEST ring security with a skit to mission impossible.

Winter Lake Tahoe Engagement Session; Jordan + Devon

The snow didn't stop her from wearing a dress and heels. And she rocked it! One of the spots for photos was off the path, Jordan was going to wear her heels trudging right through that snow. But like a gentleman, Devon swooped up his girl and carried her. He didn't have shoes appropriate for snow either which meant getting the snow in his shoes, but it's better to have cold feet now than at the wedding. ;) 

Lake Tahoe, Winter Wedding: Ridge Resort

Lake Tahoe, Winter Wedding: Ridge Resort

Winter is not my favorite season but any place looks extremely dreamy with the snow covering everywhere. Lake Tahoe is already such a beautiful location for a wedding but with the pine trees and mountains dusted with snow, is an entirely new level of beautiful.

It's pretty much a whiteout outside, and you have an engagement session. Do you cancel? Nope!

Lake Tahoe Summer Wedding at the Ridge Resort: Robyn + Jon

Lake Tahoe Summer Wedding at the Ridge Resort: Robyn + Jon

Every wedding I photograph in Lake Tahoe is special in a different way. This specific one was filled with flowers of pinks, purples, and burgundy. Along with the flowers, the views from the Ridge are just beautiful. Of course, there's a lot of the huge lush pine trees.

Lake Tahoe Fall Engagement - Hope Valley: Katie & Zach

Lake Tahoe Fall Engagement - Hope Valley: Katie & Zach

If you come to Lake Tahoe during the fall, Hope Valley is a must do. It is so peaceful out there, it makes you feel like you are in your won world. Unlike the red and orange leaves in the East coast, there is tons of aspens full of yellow and some orange leaves. There is also this small place called Sorensons Resort, if you can go and get yourself some cobbler. IT IS AMAZING. They do have some strange hours, and there can be a wait because this place is a hidden gem (that all the locals know about).
