Emerald Bay engagement photos of a couple standing high above Lake Tahoe on a cliff edge on a cold fall day with all of the south shore as a backdrop. Lake Tahoe is massive and there are a ton of spots to pick from. 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. Some of the more popular beach locations on the south shore are Kiva Beach and Zephyr Cove. Besides those two areas there are lots of other beaches to pick from for those classic South Lake Tahoe engagement photography photos. One other super popular area on the south shore is Emerald Bay State Park. This is one of the most sought after spots in all of Tahoe. Once you see Emerald Bay with your own eyes you’ll understand why some many people come here to take photos and have photos taken of them at this breathtaking area. If you’re looking to come to Emerald Bay be prepared for all the crowds that come here. It’s best accessed early in the morning or in the late afternoon. Your other option is to only come here during the late fall and early spring, since these times are the dead season for the basin.
