Two Locations, Two Texas Transplants: An Epic Engagement Session with Perri and Tyler

We met Perri and Tyler at one of our new favorite spots to start their engagement session. Still snowy, the bright white made a perfect backdrop for Perri’s stunning green velvet gown, the perfect formal choice for a winter shoot. The snow was still deep in quite a few places, making it impossible to avoid sinking in every now and then (we’re used to it by now).

Thankfully, Perri and Tyler were up for the adventure.

The couple, who are planning to move from Texas to California later this year, are getting married in 2020. (We’ll be shooting their wedding, too and we can not even begin to tell you how excited we are about it!) Fun, outdoorsy, and wonderfully outgoing, the two come to Tahoe whenever they have the chance so that they can enjoy all of the awesome outdoor activities Tahoe has to offer, like skiing and snowboarding this time of year.

Serious travelers as they are, the couple has journeyed together to Paris, Jerusalem, and Italy - just to name a few. In Tahoe, however, their favorite spot is Sand Harbor, which is why we headed there for our second location. Perri and Tyler switched into more casual clothes, creating two distinct looks for their engagement shoot.

We absolutely loved having both locations completely to ourselves, which made the entire afternoon and evening super peaceful and relaxing. At Sand Harbor, we simply walked in a big loop so that we got to go across the beach as the sun set. And what a sunset it was! The water on the beach was so still, it acted like a big, beautiful mirror for that famous warm Tahoe sunset.

One of our favorite parts about the shoot (besides getting to hang out with these two) was the incredible engagement ring the they made. It was crafted by reusing all of the stones passed through her family, making it as stunning as it was sentimental.

We can not wait for 2020 to come around!

Snow, Snowshoes, and the Sweetest Couple: Allie and Greg’s Engagement Session

Yes, it was freezing. And, yes, we should have had our snowshoes on just a little bit more just so we wouldn’t sink in too deep but we still did. But, this engagement session with Allie and Greg was still nothing but fun.

Accompanied by their two super cute dogs (Jadzia and Riker) and their parents (to help manage the pups), we made our way through the narrow and wintry trails in North Lake Tahoe with the newly-engaged couple. Having both grown up in Truckee, California, the couple has been on the hunt for the perfect venue - one that will match their fun-loving, outdoorsy personalities.

Having settled on Chateau at Incline Village for their big day, we were excited to set the mood by capturing some amazing views on our hike. And, since Jadzia and Riker will also be part of their wedding day, it was perfect to have them with us for this shoot. (Have we told you how much we love dogs?)

Although Allie warned us that her and Greg might be awkward in front of the camera (they’ve never done professional pictures together before!), they were anything but. So obviously in love and comfortable with each other, the couple made getting great shots easy. And, even though it was freezing, we all managed to stay warm by hugging, running and dancing with each other.

We can’t wait to work with these two sweethearts again on their wedding day!
