Capturing your magic Tahoe wedding moments

Posted in Weddings | May 1, 2013 | By Tahoe South

When you choose beautiful South Lake Tahoe for your wedding ceremony and reception, you have already set the stage for a memorable event. Just imagine how the incredible beauty of the surrounding area can be showcased in your wedding photographs.

Find the Perfect Photographer
One of the most important professionals you will hire for your wedding is a photographer. Capturing beautiful photographs of your wedding and reception will help you remember your special day for years to come. This is one area where a splurge pays off, so hire the best wedding photographer you can afford. For your Lake Tahoe destination wedding, here’s a great list of local photographers. Many ceremony and reception venues also have lists of photographers they work with, and are happy to share.

Before you start making phone calls, think a bit about what style of wedding photography suits you best. Do you prefer an artistic style, maybe with some black and white photos and colorized details? Or maybe traditional and classic photos are more your style. Most photographers will have a website or blog portfolio of their work. Time spent looking through the examples will save you headaches on your big day. If your wedding is at night, make sure to see some examples of wedding photographs taken at night.

Must-have Photographs
Start making a list of your “must-have” photographs — those once-in-a-lifetime shots you want front and center in your album. Having a plan ahead of time, with room for flexibility, is the best way to ensure that you get the amazing photos you have dreamed about. A good wedding photographer already knows to capture the special moments — first glance between the bride and groom, father and daughter walking down the aisle, first kiss — you just need to communicate with him about other shots you don’t want him to miss.

Scenic Tahoe Backdrops
By choosing beautiful South Lake Tahoe for your destination wedding, you already know the background for your pictures will be amazing. Depending on the location for your wedding ceremony and reception, there are countless options for one-of-a-kind wedding photographs. Emerald Bay provides breathtaking views of the most beautiful part of Lake Tahoe, and is a popular location for an intimate ceremony or simply for photographs before or after the wedding.
