Donner Summit engagement pictures of a recently engaged couple cuddling in the last rays of sunlight a top of the pass on a spring evening. Spring is like fall where you get the best of both seasons, which would be winter and summer. The mountains are still covered in snow to give you that winter wonderland look, but the beaches are dry and have no crowds on them. I would highly recommend your engagement session to take place in spring or fall, but in the end it’s up to you on what type of engagement pictures your looking for. If you're looking for a location close to Tahoe, but away from the crowds then you should take a look at the Donner Summit area of Truckee California for your engagement session to take place at.
