Let’s just say – WOW. The Eagle Falls trail head is an incredible location for portraits for several reasons. First of all, Eagle Falls portraits are very unique…this spot is not terribly easy to get to when coordinating with a photographer, and it’s on the side of the lake that takes a little more time to travel to, depending on where you’re staying in Lake Tahoe, or where you live in Reno/Sparks. Secondly, Eagle Falls has a beautiful downward view of Emerald Bay and Fannette Island in Lake Tahoe. Eagle Falls also has (you guessed it) a waterfall cascading down into Lake Tahoe, surrounded by pines and beautiful rocky ledges.
I do not recommend family/child sessions with YOUNG children at this location due to the cliffs and raging waterfalls. However, it is an amazing place for any other type of session…including proposals, engagements, maternity or families with older children. It’s also a popular spot for elopements.
