Nick and Ali married in Yosemite National Park at Glacier Point.  We met and arrived at 6a.m. for an intimate wedding with both parents, the makeup artist, the officiant, and myself. Nick was a little nervous, but was expectantly excited for his bride Ali to arrive. Her father escorted her along the 7,200 feet in elevation trail, over-looking the Yosemite valley, Half-dome, and bridal Veil falls. While hikers and tourists gathered to enjoy the epic views Yosemite provided, they were also entertained by the wedding ceremony taking place.  It’s my passion to photographing these types of adventure weddings.

The road to Glacier Point was closed due to the Yosemite fire for the past weeks. Consequently, we were a little worried about the wedding plans. However, a day before their wedding, the road opened back up just in time.  Later we left Glacier Point road and traveled through the fiery smoke that was lingering on our drive down. At one point, we jumped out of our vehicles for a few photos in it. Then later, after smelling like smoke thought it was a bad idea.

To conclude our adventure, we ended up hiking to Vernal falls Mist trail. They wanted some waterfall images and some hiking photos. Nick and Ali both hiked in their wedding attire up the rocky mist trail, and they did it with a smile. Congratulations and blessings to both of them and their adventurous future.
