South Lake Tahoe Snow Proposal | Peter & Andreina

We got to photograph a surprise proposal in the beautiful South Lake Tahoe and the whole place was covered in snow! It was a winter wonderland and it made my job as a photographer such a breeze!

South Lake Tahoe is one of those places that you will not get tired of visiting. When I receivd an email from Peter asking me to photograph his surprise proposal in South Lake Tahoe, I was jumping up and down because I knew there will be snow on their session day. Peter and I went back and worth for two weeks planning this proposal to be perfect, he and I agreed that it will be epic to be on one knee with the lake view in the background. I just knew the perfect place to take them!

To make it a big surprise, Peter told Andreina that her friend arranged a couple’s session, since they are visiting from Calorado. We started off with cute portraits while hiking half a mile down the trail to see this beautiful view of the lake.
