If you follow this blog, you know I have a great love for Lake Tahoe after having lived there for many years. Because of that, it always thrills me beyond measure to be able to feature anything shot in the area. And it’s even more spectacular when such images are as fantastic as these photographed by Brandi Schlagel of Indigo Photography Tahoe. Here are some words from the photographer and bride to be.
Cherae and Derrick are a really fun loving, energetic couple from the Lake Tahoe Area. We choose to do their engagement session in the historic town of Genoa because they really love old buildings and rustic landscapes. They got engaged in Lake Tahoe and will be getting married on the Lake next August. Here is the story of how they got engaged as told by the bride. “A year and half after we met, Derrick tells me he has a surprise for me. I figured he was trying to cheer me up because I had such a rough week.
We woke up in the dark early morning hours of September 14th and Derrick drove us to my surprise. We arrived at the Tahoe Keys Marina and I was so thrilled to find out we were going up in a hot air balloon over Lake Tahoe. I had always wanted to do this and the fact that it was over my favorite place was just incredible and by far the best surprise ever….so I thought. After relaxing on the boat, and watching the sunrise it was finally our turn to go up in the balloon with our 10 new friends we had just met. 4,000 feet up in the air, Derrick turned me around to face him and told me how much he loved me and asked me to marry him. This was undoubtedly the best surprise, as I couldn’t dream of spending my life with anyone else. And I can’t wait for our wedding August 18, 2012 at Lake Tahoe!”
