Dominic + Christy – A small snow storm on Donner Lake!

It all started one night at a bar in North Lake Tahoe where Dominic and Christy met. Soon they were skiing and snowboarding together and getting away to have fun. Quickly they became inseparable and Tahoe became the place they loved together. It was that very same bar that Dominic proposed to Christy exactly one year from when they met. How could we not go back to Tahoe to photograph their engagement photos? Little did any of us know that there would be a fun surprise snow storm awaiting us! 20 degree weather is no problem when you’ve got your love to keep you warm. 🙂 We started at their cabin in Donner for a couple cute photos of them both dressed to impress. I was pleasantly surprised as Dominic came out in his tux and Christy in her fun gold sequins!

We then drove down the street to the Donner Lake. This is where these two like to have a bit of fun in the summer. This, however, is not sumer time. In fact this is when we were hit by the snowstorm the hardest. We got out of the car and snow was actually going sideways with a strong wind from the west. That did not stop these two from having a blast!

We decided we had all had fun and were getting a bit cold. A quick change was in order to head to downtown Truckee. It was amazing as the sun decided to poke it’s head out just in time for us!

I still can not believe we went from howling winds to beautiful sunset in just an hour! Who would have ever guessed this is how their amazing afternoon would have ended. Thank you again Christy and Dominic, we can not wait for your wedding in September!
