Emerald Bay wedding photographers taking a sunrise photo of a newly married couple enjoying the beauty of Lake Tahoe on a summer morning. Emerald Bay weddings can take place all around the bay, but the best locations are right in the middle so you end up with views like this. During the summer months with all the crowds the best time for you to host your elopement or wedding ceremony here is right at sunrise or early in the morning before all the people show up to see this wonder. Wedding ceremonies that do take place here require a forest service permit for most areas around the bay. The only way to not have to use this permit is to have a friend of family member marry you instead of a paid officiant.
