Dreamy Lake Tahoe Engagement Session
December 24, 2014
RusticParkFall Weddings
I'm completely smitten with this adorable pair and I've shamelessly been crushing on them, and their lovable e-sesh with This Love Of Yours Photography all week long. Tangled up in twinkly lights, which happens to be symbolic for one of their first moments together decorating the high school halls, and dotted with giant pinecones, this gallery is a sweet gem of the season.

From the beautiful Bride...Lake Tahoe is a very special place for Justin and I. It's not only where we both grew up, but it's where we first met and fell in love. We were lucky enough to meet in high school and had that fall-really-hard-for-you-first-love that you never get over. I knew then that we were meant to be, but college in different states separated us and we decided to let each other fully experience that time in our lives. 6 years later and we still had not forgotten about each other. After all those years we finally reconnected (in Tahoe of course) and it was as if no time had gone by. Now fast forward 11 years from when we first met and we're engaged, living in Washington DC, and planning our wedding in Napa, CA!

For our engagement session there was no question that we wanted to go back to where it all began! We were lucky enough to have our high school prom at the beautiful Edgewood Tahoe Golf Club so we decided the lakefront course was not only a BEAUTIFUL setting for the romantic style and feel we were looking for, but it also holds a special place in our hearts.

We wanted photos in both the woods and on the lake so we decided to do a fall look (scarf, boots, and plaid) in the woods and then dress it up with me in a peach dress and Justin in grey slacks (our wedding colors) for a glam session on the dock overlooking the lake and mountains.

Lucky for us it was a beautiful fall day and as we posed for photos we were able to enjoy the sun setting over the lake. After the sun set, we changed back into our first outfit to snap some shots entangled in Christmas lights. Not only did they make for cute pictures, but the Christmas lights are symbolic to us because they're what brought us together. We first met when we were paired up to decorate our high school for the holidays. When we broke an entire box of lights it literally broke the ice!

Our photographers, Erika + Michael of This Love of Yours Photography, absolutely brought our vision to life; capturing two people in love in the place that they love the most!
