Hallie and Matt | Ahwahnee Hotel Wedding | Yosemite National Park

Hallie and Matt traveled clear across the United States to get married in the most beautiful place on Earth - Yosemite National Park. I honestly don't think there is a better wedding location than Yosemite. If you haven't been there, you owe it to yourself to make the trek! Hallie and Matt were fabulous - so much energy, so easy to laugh, they're the exact kind of people that make my job so rewarding. I thank them for the opportunity to document their wedding in Yosemite. Enjoy my favorites from the day!

Wen-Chih and Matt | An Ahwahnee Wedding | Yosemite National Park, CA

One of the highlights of every wedding season is a trip or two up to Yosemite to photograph a wedding and Wen-Chih and Matt's wedding was no exception. A stunningly beautiful day, with perfect weather, surrounded by their closest friends and family. There was tons of joy in the valley that day and it was an honor to be the one chosen to record it for the family. Enjoy...

Jenn and Brandon | Yosemite Wedding at the Ahwahnee Hotel | Yosemite National Park, CA

Jenn and Brandon's wedding was my last Yosemite wedding of the year and it took advantage of the great fall color in Yosemite Valley. The color was absolutely spectacular and it was a joy to spend the day searching out the most vivid locations. I love these small Yosemite weddings - everyone has such an amazing time and there's always a room full of personalities. Thanks Jenn and Brandon for sharing your day with me, please enjoy some of my favorites from the day.

Yi-Hsing and Daniel | Ahwahnee Hotel Wedding | Yosemite National Park

Any wedding day in Yosemite is bound to be a beautiful one, and this day certainly didn't disappoint! Weekday weddings in the park are great as even in the summertime the crowds are smaller and it's pretty easy to get around the valley floor. Daniel and Yi-Hsing are new residents of New York by way of Japan, and on the way they had a little wedding under the apple tree on the Ahwahnee Hotel's Wedding Lawn. Enjoy a few of my favorite images from the day...

Marissa and Geoff | Ahwahnee Hotel Wedding | Yosemite National Park

Marissa and Geoff were married on a beautiful, warm day in Yosemite National Park. After getting ready and having a tea ceremony at a cabin in the Yosemite West development we all rode together down into the valley, navigating some epic summertime weekend traffic! Then it was time for the ceremony underneath the old apple tree on the Ahwahnee Hotel's Wedding Lawn. I'm so excited to be able to shoot 5 different weddings in Yosemite this summer and fall, it's an amazing place! Enjoy a few of my favorite images from the day...

Lauren and Bryan | Yosemite Chapel, Ahwahnee Hotel Wedding | Yosemite National Park

I have a pretty cool job, for sure, but its coolness reaches a whole new level when I get to "work" in Yosemite. It's still unreal to me when I arrive that I'm so fortunate to be trusted with photographing a couple's wedding and to top it off I get to do it in one of the most breathtaking places on Earth. This is Laruen and Bryan's day in Yosemite, enjoy my favorites!

Sarah and Edward | From the Wedding Lawn at the Ahwahnee in Yosemite National Park

I gotta love a May that sends me to Yosemite National Park TWICE for weddings. The first was an amazing day, and Sarah and Edward's wedding didn't disappoint either. After several straight days of rain - and more rain in the forecast for the wedding day - remarkably the clouds parted and didn't drop more than the tiniest of a sprinkle at any point during the day. Sarah was total trooper marching around the park, unafraid of a little dirt, in the quest for some amazing portraits. Sarah and Edward were married on the Wedding Lawn and the historic Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Valley following an afternoon roaming Cook's Meadow, El Capitan Meadow, and the Yosemite Falls trails for their portrait session.
