Tahoe Beach Retreat and Lodge Wedding Photography

Lake Tahoe weddings are at the top of my list of favorite destinations. So, as you know, I was glad to be invited to photograph Danny and Katie’s wedding in south shore at the Tahoe Beach Retreat and lodge. I drove up the day before to photograph another couple’s engagement session, but I was a little hesitant to go. We had the raging California Butte fire to deal with before I left my wife and three girls. I had packed and prepared all my important items from our home before I left, put up the Yakima, and brought all my important gear, just in case we were asked to evacuate. So with that, I felt much better about going.

After the engagement session on Friday, I spent the night and prepared for Danny and Katie’s exciting Saturday wedding.  Even though Lake Tahoe was much lower because of the drought (and smoke from the Fire later in the day), we made sure to take advantage and plan our creative portraits with Danny, Katie, and the wedding party where the water should have been below the dock.

Danny and Katie opted to see each other during the ceremony on the beach. Danny was emotional and you could tell he loved her. Early in the day, back in his room, he read a letter from his wife-to-be, which he could barely read without stopping and fighting back tears. Later during the ceremony, he fought back emotions and embraced Katie’s father for a long hug as he received her hand.  After they said “I do” and kissed, the party started.

Congratulations to Danny and Katie on their marriage and new life together.  Here are some of the photos from their wedding day.
