Winter Wedding at Yosemite National Park, Elopement Photography

 

Here’s a snowy winter adventure elopement at Yosemite National Park with a few family members gathered for my last wedding of the year.  I received a call from a wonderful Nashville couple, Victoria and Richard, who wanted to elope in Yosemite and they were hoping for a winter wedding.  The week prior to their wedding it snowed and provided some epic landscape photos for us to explore and experience. They opted for the adventure, intimate and small, which is what I do often in the mountains.  They stayed and got ready at the Tenaya Lodge and then met me down in Yosemite Valley for their wedding at the famous Yosemite Chapel.  After they exchanged vows at the alter, they celebrated with the ringing the bell that echoed in the wilderness  As they walked out of the church, the traffic of vehicles congested along the main road celebrated in unison with honks.

I had a rad time hiking in the snow with my couple and enjoying the beautiful flavor the wilderness around us.  Here are a few images from their snowy wintery wedding Yosemite.

Kauai wedding photographer, Hawaii Destination Weddings

Destination Wedding Photography, Kauai, Hawaiian Islands.  What can I say? I loved this wedding. Intimate and small. They and their family were kind and gracious.  When I arrived to the Lihue airport later in the evening, I saw the milky way and the stars prominently displayed in the sky.  Wow. During the day, the Island was magical and tropical. I was waiting for a unicorn to pop out and photo bomb my couple.  The Botanical garden for which they were married is probably the best venue on Kauai to get married, with lush gardens, Kauai’s beach, ponds, acres and acres of rich trees. I almost felt like I was in the jungle at Disneyland with all the sounds, only it was real.  I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to photograph Cori and Michael’s wedding and spend a little time with their gracious family. Congratulations to Michael and Cori and to their families.
