Donner Summit train tunnels trash the dress shoot for Rebecca and Manuel

by Scott,

Monique and I both shot the wedding of this wonderful couple at Plumpjacks resort in Squaw Valley just a few weeks ago. They wanted to do a fun, more urban style trash the dress shoot the day following the wedding, as they had small children and couldn’t really get away for long on the wedding day itself.  Those of you familiar with our work know that most people come to Tahoe to get pictures in the natural beauty and environment surrounding the lake. However, I had always wanted to do some shooting in the old abandoned train tunnels up near ASI.  We used to build jumps up there in winter all the time and it seemed like a really cool place, but I never had a good reason to….until now.  When I popped the idea on Rebecca as we were discussing various ideas for their shoot, she immediately said, that’s it, let’s do it!  So after a few shots in Truckee looking for some backlit fields and train tracks, I brought them up to the train tunnels to do some exploring. We really had to race the light, as by the time we got there, we had about 10 minutes of direct sunlight before it went behind the mountains. But we had fun and were able to make some unique pictures to augment their wedding-day coverage.
