On the way to Reno along highway 80 is a bunch of mountain towns where people live a little different than down in the city. Only a couple of miles from Truckee, Sugar Bowl Ski Resort has been a wedding venue during the summer for about a decade now. The culture in this part of California is very laid back, nature loving, and filled with a sense of adventure. Making Sugar Bowl the perfect location for many locals (and non-locals) to get married.
When I arrived at Sugar Bowl for this wedding I noticed a vintage VW bus parked near me. It had amazing patina and the windows were covered with stickers for snowboard companies, breweries and all things tahoe. I love integrating cars in to wedding photos immediately starting thinking of ideas for this great vehicle. After the ceremony and a few minutes finding the owner of the VW we got the bus parked and the fun started. The images brought so much more "Tahoe" into the wedding. It was the perfect prop for this Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer.
