Wedding Proposal, Carnelian Bay Tahoe CA, Sam & Sam


I will take any opportunity that comes my way to escape the city and spend time in the mountains. This past weekend I did just that; I had the privilege of photographing one of the sweetest proposals in one of the most beautiful places for a wedding proposal, Lake Tahoe!

Sam began emailing me several weeks ago with plans to surprise his girlfriend, Sam on Valentine’s Day weekend with a proposal on the Gar Woods Restaurant Pier overlooking Tahoe. He thought of every single detail to truly make this one of the most special days his girlfriend would ever have.

After coaxing Sam out of their cabin with plans for “brunch and pictures on the pier,” he made his way to the tip of the pier for their big moment.

The shot below is one of my favorites. You can see just how happy Sam was to finally see that ring, which he had custom made for his fiancee, on her finger!

After the big moment Sam had another surprise in store for his new fiancee! He arranged for both of their parents to fly into Tahoe to share this most special day with them! Lots of tears and hugs were shared when they secretly approached the happy couple from behind, surprising Sam! :)
