Lake Tahoe Adventure Wedding Photographer, Engagement photos, Evan & Kaitlin

Adventure Couple in Lake Tahoe
Adventure Wedding Photographer, Charleton Churchill

I had been visiting with couples at The Hideout wedding venue a few weeks ago, so I planned four engagement sessions all around Lake Tahoe during that time. This wonderful couple, Evan and Kaitlin are a little closer. I photographed Evan’s sister’s wedding (Kelsey and Ryan) a few years back. They are such a great couple who enjoy being around each other. I will be photographing their wedding at the same home in West Tahoe. Evan and Kaitlin brought some clean style and owned it. Kaitlin’s dress blew in the wind, along with her hair, which looked great. When we first started, the wind was howling, rocking my truck back and forth. I was curious what kind of adventure session the good Lord was going to allow, but it turned out better than expected.

We traveled to a few locations I had previously hiked, one of which I found while exploring a new path. It had epic views for photos of the mountains, which still had some snow on them. Around Lake Tahoe, there’s always a place to photograph couples, whether you’re in the busy South Lake Tahoe, the quieter north Lake Incline Village, or anything in between or around.  There are trails and off-road areas where I use my 4wd Toyota Tacoma, sometimes for couples. I’m excited to share more weddings, engagement sessions, and adventure later. I have a lot of traveling out of state and around the world later in the year, some surprises, and other unknowns. For now, here is Evan and Kaitlin’s engagement photo session. Congratulations to them and their future together.

Nick and Ali married in Yosemite National Park at Glacier Point.  We met and arrived at 6a.m. for an intimate wedding with both parents, the makeup artist, the officiant, and myself. Nick was a little nervous, but was expectantly excited for his bride Ali to arrive. Her father escorted her along the 7,200 feet in elevation trail, over-looking the Yosemite valley, Half-dome, and bridal Veil falls. While hikers and tourists gathered to enjoy the epic views Yosemite provided, they were also entertained by the wedding ceremony taking place.  It’s my passion to photographing these types of adventure weddings.

The road to Glacier Point was closed due to the Yosemite fire for the past weeks. Consequently, we were a little worried about the wedding plans. However, a day before their wedding, the road opened back up just in time.  Later we left Glacier Point road and traveled through the fiery smoke that was lingering on our drive down. At one point, we jumped out of our vehicles for a few photos in it. Then later, after smelling like smoke thought it was a bad idea.

To conclude our adventure, we ended up hiking to Vernal falls Mist trail. They wanted some waterfall images and some hiking photos. Nick and Ali both hiked in their wedding attire up the rocky mist trail, and they did it with a smile. Congratulations and blessings to both of them and their adventurous future.
