Donner Summit engagement session photos taken by Doug Miranda Photography of a couple kissing on top of the boulder field as the sun sets that spring evening behind the mountain tops. North of the Tahoe is Squaw Valley, Truckee and the Donner Lake and Donner Pass area. These spots are prefect during those crowded summer months. Besides these areas there are many hidden and secret spots all around the lake basin that will give you amazing views, which will deliver great photos. Most sessions only last an hour or two, so when picking out a spot try and go for one that has a variety of looks or a couple great areas near by each other. This way you're not wasting an hour driving from one location to another. Yes, an hour Tahoe is really big and if you’re not familiar with the area this can easily happen.
