Lake Tahoe engagement photos of a recently engaged couple kissing each other on an empty beach during a summer evening along the south shore during sunset. Lake Tahoe is a popular area too have engagement photos taken for most couples in the Northern California and Northern Nevada area or couples that are vacationing in the area. The first thing to consider when planning a Tahoe engagement session is where to have these photos taken at? 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. Yes, an hour Tahoe is really big and if you’re not familiar with the area this can easily happen.
Just like south lake the North Lake Tahoe area has lots of public beaches for your session to take place at. The only area that does not have public access is the whole shore line of Incline Village, which is all private access and gated off. With that being said one of the most famous beaches in all of Tahoe is just south of Incline Village and that area is Sand Harbor State Park. Most likely if you’ve seen a Tahoe postcard that photo was taken at Sand Harbor or near by on the north east shore. Sand Harbor has that crystal clear water that the lake is famous for, along with massive boulders in the water that give this area its distinctive look that is only on the east shore. With this much beauty comes lots of crowds. 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.
