Donner Summit engagement rainbow photos taken by Doug Miranda Photography and one of his couples during a spring evening atop of the pass. After finding a location to have your engagement photos taken at you then need to figure out what time of year you want these portraits taken at? Are you wanting those summer photos on the beach or those amazing fall colors that decorate the surrounding area or those famous winter wonderland pictures you see. Every season has its pluses and minuses. It’s up to you on what you want as a backdrop and what the weather will be like during that time of year. 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.
