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.

One of the prettiest things that Tahoe has is when the lupine flowers are in bloom. They don't last very long, but we were able to find a little patch of those pretty purple flowers that were still alive! When I had Lynn and Garrett sit in the middle of the patch, it looked like that beautiful cheesy scene from the movie Twilight. Now that I've said that, you'll totally see it!

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. ;)

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.
