How to describe Katie and Emily? They are opposites and equals. They are silly and caring. They are beautiful and ridiculous. They are generous and curious. In short, I love them a whole lot, and they are the best. I was honored that they chose me to photograph their LGBTQ wedding in South Lake Tahoe!

I was lucky enough to Minneapolis, MN (where they live) to do some engagement photos for them and that’s when I knew that we’d be friends for a loooong time. They showed me around their awesome city and we had WAY TOO MUCH fun tasting the beers of Minneapolis. I also discovered that even though I HATE golf, Top Golf is actually super duper fun! But yeah I’m not good at it in the slightest…

They got married during Pride Month (look at those rad Pride themed Converse!) at Lake Tahoe Golf Course in South Lake Tahoe, CA. This was my first wedding at the venue and it is GORGEOUS! I mean look at those views! The staff was so excellent and everything went on without a hitch! The gals chose to have an intimate wedding, surrounded by their closest family and friends.

A side note for photogs and LGBTQ wedding planners: If you’re doing a first look at an LGBTQ wedding, don’t feel like you need to follow “tradition!” We had Katie led in backwards so they could both turn around at the same time!

Both ladies wore gorgeous white gowns from David’s Bridal. Fun fact that I found out at the ceremony: Emily tried on the dress Katie chose and REEEEEALLY wanted to get it! Thankfully her friends/fam knew that Katie had chosen that dress and they were able to talk her out of it. Personally I think it would have been hiiiiilarious if they’d chosen the same dress! (It looked great on both of them btw!)

 

Congrats you two! Can’t wait for our next adventure together!

Venue: Lake Tahoe Golf Course

Five Reasons Why Couples Need to Hire a Lake Tahoe Photographer

Couples want a wedding they can be proud of but they always face budget constraints. Especially in an outdoor ceremony, costs may double depending on the number of guests and the location newlyweds want. Families try to cut expenses by doing wedding photography in Lake Tahoe, only to be disappointed later due to the quality of the photos they captured. Given that a wedding is a once in a lifetime moment, here are reasons why couples must hire a Lake Tahoe photographer.

Experience

There are about 300,000 wedding services providers in the country today, including professional photographers. Competition has become stiffer, so Lake Tahoe wedding photographers now have add-ons to their services. They also learned to become flexible in meeting custom client needs while retaining the formality of wedding ceremonies. Lake Tahoe wedding photographers can now handle organizing smaller events and even larger crowds. Many of them are also acquainted to wedding planners, so couples can enjoy ceremonies without the hassle.

Affordable Cost

Contrary to popular belief, the services for wedding photography in Lake Tahoe do not have to be ridiculously expensive. Photographers charge reasonable rates depending on the couple’s budget. They only need to contact Lake Tahoe wedding photographers as many as they can to find someone who they can afford.

Taking Picturesque Posts

Lake Tahoe boasts scenic views suited to any occasion, especially for weddings. A Lake Tahoe photographer knows the best places on the beachside, hills and other places to take pictures. Weddings are generally stressful to conduct, and professional photographers help find spots that are not overcrowded. They are also adept with guiding newlyweds in finding stunning spots to capture great photos. These photographers have been doing this for years and it is their job to guide couples there.

Conducting Outdoor Weddings

The vast majority of Lake Tahoe weddings are done outdoors. Couples think that a beach wedding is easier to conduct, and more romantic until they realize the weather elements can actually dampen their enjoyment on the ceremony. Direct sunlight, the coastal winds and the changing tides may get way in taking a good photograph or worse, in the wedding itself. Lake Tahoe wedding photographers know how to use nature in their advantage. Couples can also ask to adjust the date of shooting should the weather is too harsh on that day and they had to move indoors.

Ensuring Quality Photographs and Harmonious Relationships

Wedding photographers often carry the responsibility of preserving good memories on wedding day. After all, a picture captures whatever transcribed in the ceremony. Now imagine if a family member who was tasked to do the same either failed to take photos or simply took unusable ones. Not only this gives a bad impression but also causes unnecessary conflicts later. Hiring a professional wedding photographer saves families from that fiasco and takes amazing photos in their behalf.

She found me on the The Knot and basically told me first thing that she wanted to hire me so I’d better be available. I’m a SUPER decisive person (I bought the first wedding dress I tried on, my husband and I bought the first house we looked at, etc) so I liked her right off the bat! Though Emiley and Mark are sooooo young compared to this old fart, they are both very mature and obviously meant to be together. Their day was perfect and beautiful in every way! We had a great time running around the golf course then dancing the night away. Congrats Emiley and Mark!!!!! Thanks ...

History and Location

Speedboat Beach is a neighborhood beach in Kings Beach, CA on the northern shore of Lake Tahoe, amid the California-Nevada state line. Known for its crystal-clear waters and magnificent boulder formations, this beautiful beach draws thousands of visitors to its shores each year. It is often referred to as the “hidden gem” of the Kings Beach area because it is less well known than some other popular local beaches. It can be found at the end of a small winding road, off of Speedboat Street.

At this beach, you can find both tourists and locals enjoying outdoor water sports like swimming or kayaking, or simply sunbathing and enjoying the magnificent views. It is thought to be one of the most scenic beaches along Lake Tahoe, with its natural granite rocks and some of the purest water in the world. Speedboat Beach is a truly spectacular experience.

Fairwinds Estate, a picturesque private property along the beach, is a historical landmark in the area. Built in 1934, it has only been owned by two families since its original construction and has been maintained impeccably. It is thought that the estate got its name when its original owner was relaxing one August day along the adjacent beach and felt a refreshing breeze off the lake. The name stuck and has inspired the names of several businesses in the area. Today, this rustic getaway is a frequent venue for elegant, charming weddings.

Booking a Wedding at Speedboat Beach

There are fewer more beautiful settings to host a wedding than at the breathtaking shores of Sandboat Beach. Fairwinds Estate offers a wonderful, cozy setting for special events, and is a sought-after wedding venue in the Lake Tahoe area. Ceremonies can be held either inside the building or on the beach which is just beneath the home. Outdoor weddings at this great location include a spectacular raised catwalk for the bride’s grand entrance and unforgettable views of the lake as a stunning backdrop.

In the estate, there are two main areas—one wing with a larger gathering area, suitable for ceremonies, receptions, or dancing, and another wing where bedrooms are housed. The main area includes a kitchen with plenty of space for caterers. With 6 bedrooms in the living area, each with a private sunroom and two to three beds, the house can accommodate up to 26 guests overnight, and of course more guests for the ceremony and reception. The main living area features high vaulted ceilings, intricate architectural details, and a gorgeous view of the lake from inside. For events held in the warmer summer months, there are several outdoor decks that can be used for extra seating, dancing, or as an extra reception area.

Weddings at this exclusive location are truly unforgettable–create memories from your special day that will last a lifetime. Capture those memories with stunning photographs to remember each perfect moment. Call today to book your wedding photographs with Nemus Photography.

History and Location

Squaw Valley is a world-famous ski resort in North Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Nevada mountains. It has more than 3,600 acres open to skiing on its six peaks, and 30 chairlifts. The resort is set in magnificent Placer County, CA where snowfall reaches up to 450 inches every year, and most days are sunny. It is the perfect place for enjoying all seasons outdoors.

The resort was founded in 1949 by Alex Cushing almost by chance—on a visit from the East Coast he broke his ankle skiing, and subsequently became curious about the area. He ended up opening the ski mountain and resort. The attraction remained relatively small (the resort could fit about 50 guests at its busiest!) until Mr. Cushing put in a bid to host the 1960 winter Olympics and succeeded—the rest is history. The area was quickly booming with new businesses and infrastructure, and the resort transformed into what it is today: a top-notch ski resort, vacation destination, and the perfect place for holding special events.

Originally founded as separate entities, the Squaw Valley Resort and Alpine Meadows were joined together in November 2011. Alpine Meadows (originally Ward Peak) was founded by John Riley in 1961, shortly after the Olympics were held at Squaw Valley. Now, both are managed by Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, LLC.

In addition to skiing and winter sports, Squaw Valley has a lot to offer, making it the perfect place for your one of a kind wedding! At High Camp, where lodging is located, there are many activities to do such as roller skating, a swimming pool, dining, and shopping. The resort has stunning indoor and outdoor venues that will make it possible to have the wedding of your dreams no matter what you envisioned.

Booking a Wedding at Squaw Valley

Squaw Valley is perfect for both large and small wedding ceremonies—up to 350 guests can be accommodated for indoor venues, but intimate groups work great too. Each wedding ceremony or reception comes with services such as a dedicated banquet team, private menu tastings, tables, chairs, and decorations for your event, and the convenience of having all of the great recreational activities of Lake Tahoe within a few minutes’ walk.

Several venues are available at the resort. High Camp, located at 8200 feet elevation, has a gorgeous aerial view of Lake Tahoe and can serve up to 225 guests for an outdoor event. Olympic Village Lodge or Olympic House can accommodate more guests for an indoor ceremony and offer breathtaking scenery with lush aspen trees and mountain views. Condominium-style lodges offer cozy fireplaces, beautiful exposed ceilings, and private balconies to offer you and your guests a one of a kind experience.

At Squaw Valley, we have a world class bridal faire of wedding professionals including florists, DJ’s, and musicians who are experts in their fields and experienced in coordinating many magnificent weddings. Each is ready for a consult to work with you to plan your perfect ceremony and reception. From taste testing appetizers to planning the lighting, our wedding coordinators manage your event down to every detail to make sure everything goes the way you dreamed. To make the memories of your special date last forever, book your Lake Tahoe wedding photographer today!
