Emma Paul is in love with capturing love, saying, “Photographing love is my jam. I believe in life’s little moments. A stolen kiss on the cheek. Booty grabs.

And knowing that you get to end every hard-working day with the love of your life. This is the love I believe in.” Her jaw-dropping work is free-spirited and full of the fun moments that make a couple’s love story personal and unforgettable.

4. Eva Moskalets of Sweet Stills
Eva is based in Northern California, and lucky for those planning weddings and elopements in Tahoe, she loves the area! Her work has more than a touch of romance — her couples are wildly in love and so obviously happy to be photographed by her that their smiles are contagious — we could hardly stop ourselves from grinning right along with them. Exposing just a stop or two above what the eye sees gives her photos a bright white quality, even further enhancing the romance of her photos and showing off her artistic side. Wherever you are planning your romantic adventure, bring Eva along with you to document it — you’ll be happy you did!
Tahoe is more than just the lake itself — it’s also an outdoorsy way of life, with plenty of ranches dotted around the area for a vibe that is as Old West as it is adventurous. “Serving the rowdy and western folks,” according to Sarah. She’s one of our preferred Lake Tahoe engagement photographers for her country style and passion for the ranch life. Her photos are a celebration of the Western spirit, like the wild mustangs dotted around the foothills of the mountains — independent, free, and a little untamed. In addition to being a talented photog, she’s an educator, mentoring photography students in the art of capturing pictures and artists in the art of business.
Undoubtedly one of the most talented Lake Tahoe engagement photographers, Kate stands out for her airy, high-key style. She’s based in Reno, which is just a short drive up a mountain — it’s a drive she loves to make, as she says in her own words, “Traveling feeds my soul. There’s something about leaving home, visiting places, connecting with people and then coming back to the comfort of your own home that is refreshing AND exciting!” She thoroughly enjoys making her couples look their best — from her flattering shooting angles to her post-processing, her work is full of radiance.

According to Dani, “My #1 goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. After that, capturing all the things that make you, you – is a piece of cake!” We can wholeheartedly endorse her philosophy and her impeccable photographic style!
