Lake Tahoe Wedding: First Look and Portraits

Apr 9, 2010 | Weddings

Anne + Chris’ wedding took place at the gorgeous Edgewood Golf Course in South Lake Tahoe.  It’s right on the lake, and surrounded by snow-covered mountains and majestic pine trees.  I can’t think of many more beautiful places to get married.  We also totally lucked out with the weather – 65 degrees and bright, bright sunshine and it wasn’t even the end of March.  Yeah!

When I arrived at the Edgewood, I grabbed a few detail shots, then some candids of the families who were beginning to gather.  Anne’s final preparations were in a tiny room in the basement of the venue – it may have been cramped, but it was filled with a happy buzz.


I loved Anne’s bouquet – so delicate and soft and pretty.  The bridesmaids did pretty well too …  Love those hues!


Once Anne was all ready, I hid Chris around the corner from the one shady spot I could find, and watched with glee as their first look unfolded.  Look at Anne’s expression – how could anyone not want photos like that?!


The crazy bright sunshine and lack of shade so early in the afternoon made for some challenging light for the formals … but the background pretty much made up for it.  🙂


There’s too much good stuff to share from the ceremony and reception to drown you in formals, although I do have to share this sweet little image of Anne:


The ceremony and reception photos will be along soon!


  1. Oh, too cool! It’s a magical place 🙂

  2. You are absolutely gifted, Kate! Chris and I love our wedding photos so far…we can’t wait to see more! The compliments keep pouring in on the work you have done so far. You captured so many moments perfectly!

  3. Oh, Kate! These are just wonderful. The flowers are beautiful: I can almost smell them through the screen. That last photo of Anne is totally gorgeous!

  4. Aw, yay! Anne, I have you and Chris to thank for such an amazing wedding. And I’m excited to share more, very soon!

  5. Kate, these are stunning! Well done!

  6. I told you it would be incredibly tough to decide which pictures to print, Anne! Pretty nice to problem to have, though.
    Kate, these are amazing – I can’t wait to see a few more black and white ones, too, based on the one sample above. It doesn’t hurt that this couple is so darn photogenic either, does it? 🙂

  7. Thank you ladies! Anna, there are some more B+Ws up now in the reception section. 🙂 And there will be lots more on their DVD too!
